Does anyone have any suggestions for the best Android and Apple Apps for learning/practicing code?  Thanks, kcninemtw.

I'm using KMT Pro on my Android Tablet (OS Android 2.2) and highly recommend it. It's a Koch trainer, costs $2.49 and for me it's well worth the cost. I like how you can set the character and word speed in wpm. I'm almost done with the Koch series at 20wpm characters with Farnsworth spacing to take it down to 10wpm.

I've also used Morse Trainer by Wolphi LLC. It's also good and I found the sidetone especially nice. A downside to this program is that while you can set the character speed in wpm, Farnsworth spacing  is set in dots, as in how many dots you want between characters and between word groups. This makes it hard to interpret your effective rate and even harder to quickly adjust it if you want slightly take up or slow down your practice rate. Is stopped using this program as it keeps crashing on my Android 2.2 tablet after an update this past fall. However, it still works on my Android 2.3 phone.

Lastly, for sending practice I use Morse Code Reader by Jacek Fedorynski. I put my phone next to the rig and tap away on my straight key. The reader will tell me what it thinks I'm sending. It also shows the waveform so you can see if you dits are too long or the spacing in a character is uneven. It can only interpret code sent at about 10wpm or faster. Any slower and it thinks everything is an "E" or "T".

IZ2UUF is a Koch trainer avalible from the play store for Android. It works well for increasing your speed and it's free so you can see if it works for you. You need to know each letter of the the code as it starts at 5 WPM.
