Otherwise, I do not think one app is hands-down better than any other—they all are great offerings with their own twist. Like many things in life, I recommend trying them all to find out what feels right to you!

    Being on Android I downloaded both the Quiztones and the “Improve your listening Skills” app and I was pleasantly surprised to find that the price has dropped on both of them, but I was not pleased by either app. “Improve your listening…” gives little explanation for anything, and Quiztones is good but limited in scope. So I went searching on the play store and to my greatest surprise I found “Studio Ears 2.0” for $4.99, I tried the free trial and loved it, I will be using this a lot!

    It’s great – I fully recommend! I can’t find a way to save any progress however, but still a very useful app.
