If you have an iPhone/iPad/Mac, I found a pretty cool app, Anytune, It allows you to slow down the playback speed without changing the pitch Рthis is very helpful when learning a new song. You can also select the pitch you want if you want to play along a song but in a different key. In addition, you can mark off sections of the song and loop it. I tried a few apps, this one is definitely the best.

All these cool features are available with the free version. The Pro version includes other more advanced features and is worth the upgrade.

Unfortunately, I haven’t come across any comparable apps for Android devices yet.
