Hi all, over the summer holidays I'm planning on developing my ears to help me play jazz. I was wondering what you thought of this program and whether it is worth it?

I watched the video demo and it seems the program only does intervals. A complete ear training program should have chords, inversions, scales, chord progressions, as well as rhythm and melody dictation.

Here's a free one that covers a good portion of the subjects above:

the downside is that it's text based, so you'll need to know the names for the intervals, chords, scales and so on.

I've used this one for quite awhile and have been pretty happy with it:

I haven't used this one but it looks quite good. A bit more money though:
