Scalculator – Ultimate Edition Released!

The trilogy is complete! Scalculator – Ultimate Edition is up on the Android Market!

The Ultimate Edition basically combines the ad-supported free Guitar and Keyboard Editions into an ad-free pay version. (Still free-as-in-Freedom, though – source code is up for everything on GitHub.)

I did roll in a few very minor feature additions, just a basic displaying of comments (for scales and arpeggios) and alternate and full names (mainly for arpeggios). ¬†You can see that up in the top left corner, referencing the figure in Slonimsky’s Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns.

What the future holds

Beyond bugfixes, I want to add “reverse lookups” – this is where you can give a set of notes and Scalculator will return possible scales/arpeggios. I’ve implemented this several different ways in the past, so I have some ideas on how to apply the concept to mobile devices.

Another thing I’m considering is adding sound.

That’s within the “Scalculator family” – I have a few ideas for some other apps as well.

Check it out

I hope you’ll give the Scalculator a chance, in whatever flavor suits you and let me know what you think!
