I got some great user feedback about Scalar and this update attempts to help make using the app a lot easier. I fell into the trap of providing too many user settings, too much flexibility instead of a strong, easy to use interface. Regrettable. Sorry about that.
But the fix is in! Scalar and ScaleTrainer share some code which made it rather easy to introduce a series of screens to launch an exercise. A wizard, in software parlance. Ok, I know. Wizards are so 1990s! But in this case, I think it’s the right answer. When you go to start an exercise, the app guides you through the setup (single scale or set of scales? root movement? starting note?)
I hope you’ll agree this makes the app easier to use for first-time and long-time users, by making setup choices obvious.
Thank you for your support and please enjoy the updates!
