    For weeks, my kid's bass teacher has been wanting him to memorize the notes on the fretboard. We work on it, but it's a chore. Earlier this week I discovered this excellent iPhone app and he loves it!

    Tenuto for iPhone

    I have a couple of music theory apps on the iPhone, but this one is fantastic! This section of the app can be customized for 4-string bass, 5-string bass, or guitar. There are many great features of key signature flashcards, note flashcards... it's very customizable. And only about 4 bucks!

    The other iPhone music theory app I like is RightNote, which has the cool feature of providing answers with your own instrument. Man, I wish this stuff was around when I was learning.

    Yeah, Tenuto is a great little app. I use it all the time when I'm stuck in boring meetings and want to accomplish something useful :)

    It's from Ricci Adams' musictheory.net which has a lot of good info. Ricci has been running that website for over a decade and so he's gotten a lot of good feedback from professional teachers on the best way to present music theory. Ricci was a senior engineer on Apple's Safari team until last year when he decided to spend more time on his own projects.

    Looks pretty good, is there an android equivalent? Would make my daily bus trip a bit more productive
