You need a sheet with morse code letters in front of you to practice at first, because the handbook provided here can't be accessed while listening, but with that out of the way this app makes it very easy to get the hang of it. You can choose what letters to practice on and increase difficulty at your own pace. The input method is also very easy. This is the best morse code app I've found so far.
Great but could improve It is the best app to learn Morse code on Google play, I have downloaded all the others and they are not as good. I would like to see Morse chat rooms where you can practice with other people.
Awesome for learning The only thing this app don't do that I wish it would is when you do the flash cards when your learning keying. Make it read the letter out loud so I can keep my eyes closed and concentrate more on the tones I make.. I think that would be an awesome feature to add
Excellent trainer Already got A-M memorised in a couple of days. Some suggestions: as the levels increase: (a) slowly decrease the time the correct 'ding' is shown; (b) increase the frequency of the 'new' letters compared to the ones already learned; and for the last 5 or so levels, preview the next letter to prepare for the speed with which you need to sequence letters to make words. When incorrect, the colour stays red instead of returning to white to know you can try again.
Good. Can improve. For one who knows nothing about Morse code, starting without any hint doesn't help. The handbook is there but the user has to switch to it to look, then go back to the exercise. For the very beginner there should be an option to display the letter being practiced, at least for some seconds, right on the practice area. Still, a great app.
Bias in random drill? The app is almost perfect, seems to be the best available of its kind available for Android. Only problem is there seems to be a noticeable bias in the letter transmit tests. I do a drill of 75 items at level 16 and get P only once! Lots of obvious bias to G and A which appear dozens of times instead. I've done the drill a few times and it's really obvious.
- Removed unused buttons
- Fixed apostrophe to have the correct code
- Reduced file size
-Disabled rotation of the interface as the app is not meant to be rotated. Several people were referencing it as an issue for other bugs and so the easiest fix is to disable it.
-Altered the options menu's formatting to prevent buttons from being pushed off the bottom of the screen.
