Appatta have developed “My Note Games!” and “Hear It, Note It! – The Aural iQ Game”.
“My Note Games!” is a unique iOS App that uses note recognition technology to enable users to interact with the App via their musical instrument.
“Hear It, Note It!” is an addictive puzzle game that is designed to vastly improve a players ability to remember and understand musical notation and phrases.
At Appatta we want our software to become an integral part of the way that children learn to play musical instruments.
We believe that educational apps and games should be fun and playful but at the same time deliver focussed educational content.
We design our Apps to be a significant enabler of the relationship between the child, their teachers, their parents and their friends.

He believes that mobile devices will help millions of children to achieve their musical potential.
