    Cool Calling All Guitar Players and Music Lovers

    As many of you know, In my real job, I am a software developer. Recently, I formed a small venture with a friend of mine to develop applications for the Android phone market.

    Today we released our first app. It is called Guitar Ear Trainer and it is a fun game which allows you test and develop your ability to identify chords.

    In an act of shameless self-promotion, I am posting an announcement here knowing that many gun guys and gals are also musicians. Give it a try and let me know what you think. If you decide you don't like it, remember that the Android Market gives you 24 hours to return an app for a full refund.

    Either way, I would love to hear what you think!

    It is under Games ---> Brain and Puzzle in the Market or you can simply search for Guitar Ear Trainer.

    Thanks!

    Nice! I left guitar behind for drums because I have no ear for music... maybe this could bring me back to it?

    .

    This thread is not OC related.
    I know this is the social lounge, but
    even though you would like to sell some of these,
    if they are worth the time and interest of the members,
    then THEY will keep it near the top due to replies.

    THIS DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE A STICKY!

    I think, being your first app, that you should offer a lite version for people to test out for free like most of the developers do. Maybe that would get it going a little faster. Just include the major open chords or something.

    I know it's only $.99 but when most people search for apps (myself included) on the android market I always search for free ones. If I test them out and like them, I usually buy the full version. There is no point in searching in paid apps right away when I might find something that does what I want for free.

    On another note; I do believe that Android is definitely the place to be making apps right now. The projected marketshare should be pretty scary for apple.

    I've heard great things about the Android! However, my budget requires me to stick with pre-paid cell, for now.

    In the meantime, I was given a guitar in 2005, from a gent I met at a bar who realized I was in the deep throws of divorce and said "you need this a lot more than I do." I put it away for four and a half years, but drug it out, tuned it, and began learning how to play it in January of this year. I've learned about twenty chords, and have half a dozen songs under my belt, including Don McClean's American Pie (that's not easy! - lots of fast chord progressions!)

    It helps.

    Offer a lite version and I'll check it out. I never say I play guitar because I know I suck. I practice guitar. So this would interest me.

    Well, PM me a phone number and I'll stumble through American Pie or Crocodile Rock...

    I'm learning (at 45 y/o) to play guitar.

    I play a little (badly) and LOUD.

    Doesn't sound as bad when it's accompanied by vibrating windows and dishes.
    LOL

    Sounds like a neat program.
    No "smart phone" here, but would consider for the laptop or PC.

    LOL, it isn't "worth the time and interest of the members...."

    What part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" is so hard to understand ???


    James: Ain't this a little showy, Pa? I mean with the guns out an' all?

    Big Jake: James, don't be fooled. They all know what's in this box, and they all want it. what we're doin' with this audacious DISplay is tellin' 'em they can't have it. Who knows, we may be savin' some poor miscreant soul's life this way.

    That's great.

    My wife has an android. I'm a little bit too late in the game for the smart phone biz, but she's always downloading the music things as I play guitar and bass. I'll have her check it out.
    T.V. brings on a whole new meaning to thinking inside the box.

    Don't worry take it from me I play guitar, bass, and to many other instruments to list; a true musician will never be as good as the want. I started playing when I was about 10 (15 years ago) and I still find my self geting frustrated trying to learn new things so hang in there!
