    I found a great new app that helps practice correct intonation by recording as you play and visually showing you how far you are off from perfect intonation, and which way. Are there any other apps that people have found useful?

    I should have listed it in the original post. It is called Music Wrench

    Here’s a few mobile (specifically Android) apps that I use:

    Cleartune – A really good tuning application. When I compare to to my electronic tuner and it seems to be pretty accurate.

    Metronome Beats – I haven’t used it much yet but it’s a metronome app that has different sounds rather than the computer (heart monitor-like) sound that most computerized metronomes have.

    MusicTutor SightRead – It was an app recommended by someone else on this site. It helps you learn to read and write music.

    I’m gonna have to try some of these. As it is now, my ears are my wrench.

    I tend to leave my Snark tuner on my violin to check for intonation. I don’t look at it all the time, but if I’m sounding something off, I can check quickly. Also, if I’m in a situation where I can’t hear myself well (playing in a large group, or even on stage with the rest of the band) it helps.
    I do absolutely agree though, that using a metronome is very important. There are many apps for metronomes, or even the Snark models are reasonable and you can even plug some of them into an amplifier if necessary.
    It is very difficult to play with other people if you can’t keep a steady beat and you will drive the dancers crazy if the beat is off!
