    SpanishDict does a decent job of this. Their notifications are engaging and motivating, yet don't talk down to their users. Here's two representative examples:

    "Keep your 4 day streak going. Here's 14 new vocabulary words."

    "You have 17 words up for review. Dive into a quiz."

    In practice mode, users can move the playback start and end cursors to a section that needs practice. At least on an iPad, actually doing this is a bit janky though: dragging a cursor often also moves the current play head, a user needs to move both the start and end cursor, and the score is shifting as the cursors move.

    So, how about a one-click/one-touch way to select a section that's significantly worse (Ie, more red) than the surrounding measures? If I touch a red section of a song, re-center the playback cursors around that part without making me drag them. I'd propose selecting the mostly-red measures plus one measure on either side.

    I encountered another example of this: in guided lessons, particularly the "Explore" stage, Yousician proposes specific songs to play. Yousician offers "Skip" as a choice, but there's no way to preview the song from that presentation screen.

    For those of us who are learning and using standard notation, every other score outside of Yousician uses a finger number to indicate position changes. I understand if Yousician wants to display its own fingering diagram, but how about at least also displaying standard notation?

    If sheet notation has been selected, each time a significant position change occurs (ie, the colored keys change on the keyboard diagram), put a finger number on the score as well.

    (Related: https://yousician.uservoice.com/forums/296820-feature-requests/suggestions/13778544-numbers-instead-of-colours-is-a-must-for-piano . This suggestion is specific to sheet notation, where there's currently no indicator of position changes on the score -- that is, the score is actually harder to follow than typical sheet music.)

    Here's what seems like a relatively simple improvement, in that it wouldn't require much if any new content. Add a few more levels to the Knowledge track, and use the existing "Major Scales" and "Minor Scales" workouts (in Learn -> Workouts). Right now, knowledge ends at level 6.

    For example, imagine a new Knowledge level 7 that required playing all major scales at a modest tempo, one octave, each hand separately. Level 8 adds 2 octaves, 2 hands. Level 9 adds minor scales. Some scales do get touched on in the Classical and Pop knowledge paths, but not as a cohesive curriculum.

    It's nowhere near as good as something integrated into Yousician would be, but until Yousician tries to tackle this, here's a free, non-ad-supported iOS app called "Notes": https://apps.apple.com/us/app/notes-sight-reading-trainer/id874386416

    It does require MIDI, since it doesn't have audio pitch detection. It's totally non-commercial -- no ads or data collection, no IAP, just a developer solving their own problem and sharing it with others. I'm not affiliated with it except as a happy user.
