    "As long as you remember to keep your ringer turned up for all the features - this app totally rocks! It's the best of its kind as far as I'm concerned. It's a little quirky with that ringer volume thing getting in the way of some features, but aside from that, it has helped me train my ear more than any other thing I've found to date. And customer service is seriously fast to respond to questions and problems. Highly recommended!"

    "I am the first to admit that I don't know much about music, so I decided to purchase the ear training app "Music Theory Professor" on my iPhone, just to see how much it could teach me. It definitely isn't a substitute for actual music lessons, but I do know more now than I did a month ago. Plus, it is a lot of fun!"

    "As one that is training an ear attuning to a proper frequency & sound is quite critical, unfortunately Ultimate Music Theory falls short of this ear with no audible ear training methods. Sadly my ear needs a trainer to learn the viola & Ultimate Music Theory presents me with flash cards as if cramming for a College exam. I use my ear to train for sound not my eyes, my head hurt after using this music app."
