Apps are a wonderful invention. They enable us to carry everything we need in our pocket and use it on demand – wherever we are.

After doing some research, I discovered, there are some amazing apps, you can use as a singer out there. Whether you want to do some warm-up, record your voice or train your ears. There are apps for almost every need.

To help you in the rampant digital jungle, I checked out 8 free singing apps that make you a better vocalist.

1. Red Karaoke

Nice app for everyone who loves doing Karaoke or for practicing purposes. You can either sing along to the original song or go directly into Karaoke mode.

If you want, you’re free to record your own version and share it with the Red Karaoke community. Funny extra feature is to use a recorded version from another member and sing a duet with him.

That’s only possible if someone activates his record for duet mode.

If you decide to become a VIP member, you benefit from more features, such as video recording, but the free version is already very good and useful.

2. MyEarTraining

MyEarTraining app iphone

That’s a great app. You got all key elements for proper ear training in just one program.

– Chords
– Scales
– Melodies
– Chord Inversions
– Chord Progressions

Additionally you can extend your skills in 3 other areas

– Rhythm
– Solfege
– Sing

I used the Earmaster Pro on a computer, when I worked on training my ears some years ago. MyEartraining though seems like a great fit for the smartphone.

If you master this program, I’m sure you will see astounding results in your pitch singing.

There’s a course feature, where you can build the training up from bottom to top and track your progress. Moreover, you get an “Exercise of the day”, that keeps you surprised.

It is really a great app to improve your ears and eventually sing better on-key.

Highly recommended!

3. VanidoVanido app iphone

Vanido is one of 3 apps I cover, that help you work on your singing.

First off, your vocal range and voice type (bass, baritone, tenor, mezzo, alt, soprano) is determined. You can set an alarm clock for daily practice. To actually start the singing lessons, you have to sign up (at no costs).

Basically, there are 3 different exercises every day. Starting with chest voice, head voice and -what they called- foundation. An ascending scale through your registers.

You can listen to all exercises in only-piano style or as an example how it’s supposed to be sung. I should mention here, that the exercises are not for completely beginners, but more advanced intonation stuff.

After each exercise, you get an instant review of your performance, graded in Vani XP (whatever that means). One of Vanido’s services is to send you a daily notification about a new exercise.

You can also use Apple Music or Spotify to connect to practice songs. If you want to get immediate access to all exercises, you have to subscribe for 3.99€/month or 24.49€/year.

Vanido free app features

– Good Warm-up
– Piano play-along is beneficial
– Scheduled, personalized exercises that are tailored to fit your voice range keeps you motivated

– Doesn’t teach you anything about vocal technique though

5. Sing Sharp (now: Perfect pitch)Sing Sharp app iphone

What’s really outstanding about Sing Sharp aka Perfect Pitch is the graphical design of the app.

It looks like, they worked hard to make it attractive for their users.

What’s inside? You can break it down into two different features.

1) Warm ups: You can choose between 4 different free programs (starter, stretch out, delightful, bouncy). The exercises come close to how it’s done in a private singing lesson, accompanied by a fluently played piano at a good pace.

2) Sing Songs: There are some free songs in the library (e.g. Amazing Grace, Greensleeves). However, the majority of the songs have to be purchased via Apple Music. When you sing along the instrumental version of a song, you can watch, if you are on key. At the end you see your score from 0 to 100.

– Very useful for warm ups
– If you’re subscribed to Apple music, you will get a lot of practice songs

– Very annoying ads in between the exercises

6. Voice Record Pro

I’ve been using this app for 5 years now. It’s super useful to catch a fresh song idea or record some singing practicingVoice Record Pro app iphone. What I especially like best about Voice Recorder Pro

1) It plays back with a decent audio quality. A very balanced sound for a free smartphone app.

2) You can immediately share the recording with someone else (e.g. band member, vocal coach, producer).

3) The trim effect: If I record a longer section or repeating versions of a song, I can cut the track and only keep the best parts for further songwriting.

You also have the opportunity to put some effects on the track, such as reverb. A feature I never use, but it’s nice if you want to play around with it.

7. Tone GeneratorTone generator app iphone

Using the Tone Generator is pretty simply.

You set the frequency and the app generates the tone. It Comes in handy, if you need to start acapella or to practice at the right pitch, when you don’t have any instruments in place.

The only tricky thing is to know the accurate frequency of each note. Don’t worry – you can look it up fast and easy HERE

8. Guitar Tuna

Guitar tuna free app iphone

For all singers, who also play the guitar, Guitar Tuna is a great choice for your instrument.

It’s quick, it’s accurate and easy to use. And it’s free 🙂

Though you have a bunch of other features, such as a metronome or educational games, I basically only use the automated tuning function.

There are some really useful singing apps on the market, that all come for free. If you want to keep improving your voice without spending a dirty dime, take advantage of them and enhance your skills.

  1. Very cool apps. Personally I’m not a singer but I’m a piano player. I’ve always wanted to make songs of my own but never really had any tools. After looking at these apps, it got me wondering, are there any apps that can translate text to voices of singers? 

    That would also help me make games and animations too. Great article!

  2. I really think that this is great. It must be said that I am not some singer but I like to sing in some special celebrations. new Year is coming and there is not better time to show our talent for singing lol. I will install Vanido for now and and see how it works.

  3. Hi Felix,

    Awesome list for free vocal training. Surprising, I haven’t tried any of these apps. I used to be in school choir team. I remembered that we had to do the warm up to open our voice then we go practice. The vox tools and sing sharp seem fit for me, I don’t mind the apps lol. Great pointers. Thanks

  4. A waste of time for Android users. Please specify in the page title that it’s apple only.

    1. Sure, I have a lot of suggestions.

      Just get on my email list and you’ll learn a ton about how to start singing from scratch.


  5. Hello i need training from the scratch, i love singing but my friends says i sound awful???

    1. First, tell your silly friends to shut up. Friends are supposed to be supportive.
      Next, there are plenty of options to get vocal training. Online and offline.

      If you really want to get better…you’ll find a way.


      P.S. Start with the fundamentals like breathing. This alone can make a huge difference to your tone…pitch…and range.

  6. I am only 10, but I love singing and this artical was so helpful! I write songs, play piano, and play guitar.

  7. Of these eight apps (thank you for the list) which might be funniest for an eight year old?

  8. Hi Felix, I am from India, I want to learn Indian singing and need to improve my voice and singing skill. Would appreciate your suggestions and guidance.
