Apps for rhythm and ear training

Let's have a discussion about good apps for ear-training, rhythm, and theory. 

Harp Column magazine had a good article on this. https://harpcolumn.com/blog/theres-an-app-for-that/  but you need a subscription to read it. 

Here's another good page to peruse for ideas: https://blog.landr.com/best-ear-training-apps/ 

Elisa Thorn recommended this one https://apps.apple.com/ca/app/functional-ear-trainer/id1088761926

    I'm afraid I don't have any good list - I need help with this, especially a good interval trainer - But my best tip for rhythm apps is to download a speaking metronome. I used to say - did for a thousand years, "if only the metronomes could say the numbers instead of that tick tock!" Well, evolution. Now we have Speakbeat for iphone, and Iona talking metronome for android. They are pretty wonderful, especially for distance lessons, because the students can hear a replacement teacher calling out the numbers. So great.
