Pitch Perfect for Android now available

Once again, I’m very excited to announce that I’ve finished porting my digital pitch pipe application, “Pitch Perfect” from its original Windows Phone 7 incarnation to Android, and it’s now available for free (ad-based) from the Android marketplace!  I hope you’ll give it a try.  I got some great feedback on Tag Master, and I hope to continue to get great feedback on Pitch Perfect.  I hope you’ll give it a try, and tell me what you like and what you don’t!  I know I’m not the best in the world when it comes to app aesthetics, but I hope it’s pleasant enough to use and functional.  It’s been a nice little personal side project for me, and hearing about people using these apps is a blast!

For me, this app is particularly useful because I struggle to remember the mapping from key signature to key note (what is 3 flats again?  A?  E flat?  I can never remember!), so having that built right into the app keeps it at my fingertips.  In addition, I’ve added a feature to the Android app that allows you to keep a list of songs and their keys, so you’re never stuck trying to remember what key that song you’re about to start rehearsing/performing was in.

Again, thanks to my friends in Voices in Harmony for helping me do some light testing of the application.  I’m sure I’ll discover things worth changing, but it’s immensely helpful!

Anyway, as always, I’ll leave you with the goods.  You can find the details here:

  1. very very very cool app… especially for a newbie like me. You said:

    this has been something I have been actively looking for – I don’t have the best ear yet and I have a list of acoustic songs that I am trying to learn (simple stuff like Jimmy Buffet) and this will help a lot.

  2. David,
    How did you port this? Did you use the Microsoft Android toolkit (rumored to be released soon)? Or did you just take your code and write it using the Linux or windows Android sdk from Scratch?

  3. I’ve been telling all my Sweet Adelines friends about this app. I love the song list, and the key signatures are very useful for those who don’t read music. I realize Apple is proprietary. Is this app likely to be available in the future for my friends who are iPhone users?

  4. Hi Dave,
    Thank you for making this app, it has been a great help to me and my friends.
    Did you generate the sounds using an android API or did you record them yourself and
    have your app play them?
