Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro by Ariel Ramos is an iPad app specifically made for songwriters, music teachers, students, and composers. The harmony pro app is meant to help foresee, hear, analyze, and compose harmonic progressions.
You’ll see seven levels of complexity, viewable in all 12 keys and enharmonic spellings. Each level also has a workbook you can view at mDecks.com to further research and study.
Features of the app for writing songs include Help Mode, which will interactively teach you how to use the app; Browse Mode, where you can tap the chords on the map, listen and see their function, and see the mode or scale that is most often used; and Record Mode, which lets you make your own progressions and save them.
Other modes also include Play Mode, where you can select, load, and listen to standard cadences and progressions while you watch them play in the map; and Audio Mode Demo that lets you load and listen to public domain pieces while viewing them in the map.
