Tool for Tones
I've looked around and can't find a good tool to practice tones.
The funny thing is, I've seen one in a bar in Budapest (or something similiar)! It was a karaoke machine that tells you how close you are to a note and gives you points for singing New York, New York on key.
Now if some wise programmer folk were to adapt that karaoke thing to make a simple downloadable app that checked and visually SHOWED you if you were doing tones right, I bet they could make a pretty penny.
AND If you could download your cPod vocab or lessons into it, I bet that would add a nice new market advantage to the cPod Toolkit. (do I need a hint, hint here?)
You wanna cash in, I wanna learn tones!
Just let me know when the beta is ready.

@RJBerki - Wow, thanks. I had no idea something like this existed, and didn't find anything through the search engines.
However, the website won't let me register for some reason and
I can't find any screenshots of the application.
Does it do complete sentences?
Can you import cPod lessons?
Do you recommend it?

Yes, I invented the aichinese software only a short while after they'd already developed it and published it... :P
I was thinking about a downloadable application, to enhance the ChinesePod site, but it's got enough extras on it, I might pay for their service.
