Sing inTuna update – HotPaw bring iOS9 support to their pitch training app

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, one of the things I find attractive about the whole iOS music app environment (and, indeed, iOS apps in general) is that app developers are still happy to create apps that are highly focused on a single – and often quite simple – task.
