Start Tiny Ear Trainer and open the preferences, select the intervals you wish to train (for beginners a major third, fifth and seventh would be a good start). Apply the preferences and push play. The Tiny Ear Trainer will now play one of the intervals, try to find out which one. After a few seconds it will automatically show the answer and then play the next interval for you.

I'm very interested in feedback. Do you miss a feature? Do you have a problem? Or is it just perfect? Tell me!
GNU Solfege is a far more powerful alternative to tiny ear trainer.
