You're very welcome @danielkuntz0! I'm curious to know what was the original inspiration behind making this app?

@guillaumebardet Back in high school, having perfect pitch was akin to having wizard powers, at least for band students. Whether perfect pitch can be learned or not has always been a subject of debate. Being curious about how to acquire the skill, I built Tone to "brute-force" train myself. Crazy part is, it worked. Through building and testing the app repeatedly, I believe I acquired perfect pitch (though I have to practice regularly to keep it). Since it worked for me, I figured it must work for someone else too. The first version of Tone was released in August 2016. Since then, the app has helped over 150K people improve their musical ear.
