Much more than one of the hundreds of "Scale Encyclopedias" available, exciting soloing and skilled improvisation requires study of scales. Jam Exam presents the scales in a fun and exciting way. If you are studying stringed instruments either privately or on your own, you should find this app to be great value to your studies!
Once the app is downloaded, the user can choose to either: A) manually scroll through each scale stopping on the scale position where they want to practice. B) The user can set a timer that will count down to 0 and will automatically change the scale to another one. The next scale will be in the same key but in a different position on the neck.
Working this way enables the musician to work on mechanics while training their ears, hands and eyes to the positions on the neck. Each key has a unique backing track to play along with in a variety of styles, ideal for students and teachers of stringed instruments. The JamExam App displays the scales in Major (and the relative modes) Major Pentatonic, Minor Pentatonic, and Minor Blues with more scales being added all the time.

A fun keyboard app which is designed especially for younger children as a ‘distractor’ to keep them busy while you’re busy either at home or when you are out and about. This child friendly keyboard app is designed to be easy to use as well as functional as needed to entertain children. In order to keep the app as easy to use as possible it uses the pentatonic scale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentatonic_scale) which comprises of five notes. However the distinguishing feature of the pentatonic scale is that no notes sound harmonically bad together. The pentatonic scale is used lots in traditional music and on lots of traditional instruments.
