Description

This handy application provides pitch references for musicians and singers.

It's a chromatic pitch pipe, ideal for a cappella singers and timpanists. With thirteen pitches, each a half step above the previous, Pitch Pipe provides all of the notes of a single octave, so a singer can start in any key required by Western music. To use, play the initial key note or tonic of the piece to be sung. You can also play the first sung note of the song, particularly when the song begins in unison or with a solo.

Having a Pitch Pipe in your iPhone is useful because you always have it with you. Normal pitch pipes can gradually change pitch as the material hardens with use; and since they are often carried in a pocket, lint can work its way into the device and affect the sound. Pitch Pipe for iPhone has none of these problems.

You play a pitch by tapping the letter of the note itself, which functions as a button. This app uses real pitch pipe samples, recorded from a pitch pipe.

Amazingly useful app

:
I have always had an issue with forgetting my pitch pipe at the house. Never again with this app. It pitches perfectly and I have used it to lead many songs in front of the congregation. A must have for any acappella song leader. My only complaint is that when playing a sharp or flat note it only displays the sharp information. So pitching a D flat song display it as a C sharp. But it's really no big deal.

OK, but needs improvement.

:
This is a good first effort, but it seems a few things weren't thought through thoroughly:

• It needs an octave selector. I don't quite understand the choice to include only pitches *below* middle C. Every pitch pipe I've ever owned started at middle C and included the octave above. That said, I'm sure the lower octave is useful to some, so the best solution would be an octave selector -- right on the main page, not hidden under the info button.

• It's also ironic that the app displays a treble clef, although it plays notes from the bass clef. :-) Display a bass clef for the current pitches, and have the displayed clef change to treble, when the user chooses the upper octave (as proposed). Simply tapping the clef, itself, would be an ideal way to select octaves without cluttering the user interface with another button. :-) If you're concerned about tapping accuracy, you could make the clefs a bit larger, allowing them to descend into the center of the circle a bit. (Or better yet, just make the blank area immediately beneath the clefs "tappable," without enlarging the clefs, themselves.)

• Give us a "single-play"mode. It's tedious having to re-tap each pitch, to stop it from repeating. One tap should play the sample once, instead of over and over again. Again, this behavior could be specified via a preference. But it seems to me that the single-play mode would be most practical -- especially in live-performance situations.

• If you're going to include repeating pitches, have the samples properly looped. The current, start-and-stop pitches are cheesy. Loop them! We have the technology!

• Finally, remove the "Currently Playing" text. It's unnecessary, and it's clutter. When a pitch name is tapped, a very clear circle is drawn around it. Nice! So, under what circumstances would someone tap a pitch, ignore the big circle, and look at the bottom of the screen in order to determine -- in small text -- what's currently playing? :-)

As I said -- a good first effort. It's almost there. Hopefully an update will hit the "sweet spot."
