So I'm looking around to find out about trombone related apps to put on my phone. I recently found an app by Pickett brass that compares mouthpiece size. I want to know your favorite apps for practice or just trombone related things apple or android. Also why is there not an app for this forum if there is please direct me that way this is my hone page.

I like iRealPro.  Recently, I've been practicing melodies, even just simple pop songs, in all keys with the backgrounds.

I've also been using Tonal Energy's tone generator feature - Wearing ear buds and playing with drones. I'll set a note to sustain and play notes against them. I also set it to detect notes and play in unison with me.  It's like playing with another trombone player who happens to be right on pitch!

Yeah, I just got TE recently. It seems like there's a lot to it. The analysis feature intrigues me but I don't know how to make practical use of it yet.

I am using Tonal Energy. Find it a great tool, highly recommended. It has also a nice recording function so you can analyze things after you have played it.

I am currently trying out ATracker for logging practicing sessions. See https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/atracker-pro-daily-task-and-time-tracking/id519561306?mt=8. This is a general task tracker and I will try to use this to  see how practice time is spent on different topics.

If anyone uses similar tools/apps for making practice diaries/logs please let me know what you use and what your experiences are.

I'd be interested in this too. I was just thinking about starting a practice log.
