The iPhone app allows you to do and view most functions as the web app version of the software. Here are some examples where the app could come in handy:

  • Easily add, view, or edit student information and call or email them with one click from your phone.

    How about a revised app for the iPad? is it out yet?

  2. Andrew

    Hi Julie – no iPad specific app is available and there are no current plans to release one. We do update our software to make sure it runs well on Safari, the default browser for iPads. Thanks!

    The new app looks much cleaner! I was glad to hear today that you would still integrate the ability to add a payment through the app. Looking forward to when that is back!

    Looking forward to the Android version!

    The two reasons I used the MTH app in the past were 1. to track payments received at lessons and 2. to track attendance at lessons. I am failing to see any way to do these with this new “improved” version… am I missing something?

    Hi Mandy,

    Thanks for leaving a comment. Tracking payments received will be released shortly in version 2.2.

    You can track attendance at lessons. I’ve included a link below of screenshots showing how to mark attendance in the app:

    i’ve downloaded the app. Music Helper is quite new to me. Let me get a feel of it before subscribing to the paid service. Thanks anyway 🙂

    The Android app has extremely limited functionality and is not at all intuitive. The buttons give no clue as to their functions. I realize it’s in Beta and hope a lot of improvements are on the way, such as entering bill payments, for one.

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for the feedback. We will be quickly adding features and improving the app.

    If you’d like the app to automatically update, you can set that on your Android device. Here are instructions: https://support.google.com/googleplay/answer/113412?hl=en

    Thanks for your patience and know that we are striving to bring you a more fully functional Android app.
