    Almond is a dictionary for musical terminology. It includes over 1400 listings, 200 illustrations and is designed to deliver short and concise definitions. In addition to most common phrases in music today also standard Italian and German terminology is included. Musical terminology is often confusing to beginning as well as advanced students and even teachers often prefer to have a reference handy. This is mostly due to the melange of languages used where one score will have remarks in German while the next piece is annotated in Italian. Almond also covers the entire field of music and is not limited to a style or to only classical music.

    Almond is a dictionary for musical terminology. It includes over 1400 listings, 200 illustrations and is designed to deliver short and concise definitions. In addition to most common phrases in music today also standard Italian and German terminology is included. Musical terminology is often confusing to beginning as well as advanced students and even teachers often prefer to have a reference handy. This is mostly due to the melange of languages used where one score will have remarks in German while the next piece is annotated in Italian. Almond also covers the entire field of music and is not limited to a style or to only classical music.

    In Almond's unique three-step access, most often the main description plus inline illustration is available directly from the main screen. Tapping an entry displays the details view that often contains additional information regarding a specific term. To widen a definition Almond additionally features convenient links to Google and Wikipedia which can be accessed through the buttons in the toolbar. These buttons are "pre-loaded" with the current search term and will launch Safari with the results for the search term in either Google Defines or Wikipedia. This three-step access allows quick access to data even if not connected to the internet or when data transfer needs to be kept to a minimum and only takes one additional tap to access the full resources of the internet to do a deep search for a specific musical term.

    Anybody involved in music, student or professional, has at some time or another used dictionaries, tables and other ways to look up musical terminology. Even the experienced performer will occasionally have had a score with just one or two completely unknown annotations. With Almond this is now a problem of the past. Almond has been available for several platforms for many years and we are happy to finally also bring it to the iPhone. A video and more info is available from the website listed below.
