This post is time-sensitive! With the run up to the Holidays there are a number of apps which are running specials. If you have an iPhone or iPad, you may want to take advantage of some of these great discounts and freebies. Also, if you hear of anything, please let us all know by posting in the comments below, and on the facebook Music Teachers’ page – http://www.facebook.com/groups/musicpln
- All APS apps are on ridiculous sale. These are a must-have for any music educator. APS Musicmaster is the iPhone’s Swiss Army knife of music education – metronome, tuner, digital recorder, glossary, pdf reader. Currently it’s on sale at $1.99 which is a no-brainer. APS Musicmaster Pro, the iPad version is now $4.99, another total steal. APS Tuning Trainer, which is a one-of-a-kind app for training your ears to differentiate pitches, is just $1.99.
- The Amazing Slow Downer, usually a $15 app is currently FREE. When they say “amazing” it’s not hyperbole – it really is jaw-droppingly brilliant. Don’t delay, get it today. Joe Pisano and I will be demonstrating this app as part of our “iPad for Improvisation” session at TIME/TMEA 2013. ***DANG – as of 5:30 p.m. EST, the free window has expired. I’ll keep an eye out in case they put it on sale again.
- iGrand Piano, from IK Multimedia is currently on 50% sale, at $9.99. This app is well worth the money as you get 17 full 88-note pianos, with fantastic sounds. There is a free version, but it only has two pianos, and you don’t get all 88 notes. Get the full version while you can.
- DM1, one of the best Drum Machine apps out there, and usually listed by Apple as one of the showcase apps, is currently FREE, though it’s usually $6.99. I have no clue how long this sale will last, but go for it – soon!
