Good Stuff about this music ed app: The giggling begins right as you open this app, it’s really funny! The blob chorus treats you to a quick rendition of their “Blob” song and then when you go to use the resource (play the game) they separate. The idea is that you listen very carefully to the pitches the Blobs sing and then the King Blob sings one of those same pitches. You have to tap on the correct Blob to win points.
Hilarious? Oh yes.
I have been involved in perfect and relative pitch courses over the years, but I’m not sure if ANY of them were presented in this light. This being said, it does work, and is great practice for those searching for perfect pitch abilities.
Our Wish List: We wish their were choices for female voices. These blobs all have very low voices and a gal like me would like to practice her skills on pitches within her range. Maybe this could be a future upgrade?
My Love: I love that once you master the easy level you can notch it up and play with more Blobs. It really gets quite challenging. I’ve been playing this game all week, and I tell you – it’s still kind of tricky in the higher levels.
Summary: All-in-all we think this app is hilarious and a really fun way to practice ear training. The app is simple and right to the point. A smiling, lumpy blob is humorous enough to keep you playing longer than other boring ear training exercises for sure!
