    I can specifically vouch for the “Morse-It” iPhone & iPad app. I’ve been using it to try to get my own code speed up to around 15 _ 18 WPM by using it as a “crutch” while listening to W1AW’s propagation forecast & DX bulletins on 80 meters. It works well on a strong signal such as W1AW normally is here my QTH is in Southeastern Massachusetts). While listening to W1AW, I try to mentally predict what the next character is before it pops up on the iPad screen, & when the app stumbles at decoding if W1AW takes I fade, I can frequently copy it by ear. The propagation forecast bulletins are especially good due to having lots of numbers & punctuation characters in them. I find it’s definitely helping my ability to copy by ear. Just my 2 cents worth.
