We have collected a list of mobile apps for musicians: from songwriting to production and habit trackers.
Inspiration can occur at any given moment, right? Luckily, we can always count on our smartphones, and even if sometimes they seem to distract us, there are a lot of handy apps that could help you to take your songs to a whole new level.
1. Functional: Ear Trainer
This app teaches you to distinguish between tones in the context of a particular musical key. You will begin to recognize the role (or function) of each tone in this key, which is incredibly similar to its role in other keys of the same scale.
2. Guitar Tuna: Tuner for instruments
This one is the world’s #1 tuner app! It has accurate tuning across 15 instruments including guitar, ukulele, and bass but you can also add personalized tunning styles.
3. Flowkey – Learn piano
If you’re thinking about learning a new instrument, you can try Flowkey. This app is a virtual piano teacher. You can practice chords, and notes… and receive instant feedback. It will also help you to learn your favorite songs.
4. Capo Touch
Capo guesses the beats, chords and keys of songs to help you break them down to their individual parts and to learn how to play them.
5. Music Theory
This one is very useful to practice music theory and train your sight reading skills. Start with simple notes in treble clef for total beginners up to identification of exotic scale modes in mezzo-soprano clef.
6. Habit Bull
This one doesn’t necessarily relate to music but it’s very useful to help you to create habits. List all your habits and add reminders to help you achieve a daily routine.
GarageBand is the famous DAW adapted to a mobile version. it incredibly simple to play, record, and share your music, no matter where you are. You can also use live loops which is incredibly useful if you wanna jam along!
8. Spotify For Artists
Of course we couldn’t end this list with our favorite and most addicting app that was ever created. Is there any better sensation than seeing in real-time how 0 listeners are listening to you?
