App works at first
by Saint Baptist on 2020/10/22 22:30
This app is great but it stops working after a while. It takes me forever to tune and the scale goes up and down while tuning.
Fender is good

Fender tune really helped tune my guitar
Greedy
by Coffeepedaler on 2020/10/19 01:59
I’m a Fender Player subscriber (annual membership) and I’m shocked that that $90 a year doesn’t unlock the premium features of this app.
Snapped my G String
by Reezi93 on 2020/10/16 22:54
I just got my guitar a little while ago and have a very handsy nephew who will slightly turn the knobs every chance he gets. Some notes I play are obviously out of tune so I saw the video for this on YouTube and decided to use it. 1) it only detects the G string 2) as I am thinking maybe I just need to start with the G string , it tells me to keep tuning up and I finally tune it up as much as it goes because it kept telling me to and the string snapped.
Bluetooth support please
by Xkingsly on 2020/10/12 21:16
would be nice if I could use the metronome with my bluetooth speaker but it doesn't seem to connect when i have the app open.
Easy tune
by 722377 on 2020/10/10 21:53
Easy to use and works great
Tuner is great
by nyc bagels on 2020/10/06 22:27
I have had this app on my phone for a year or more. I never used it. When I first installed it I opened it once I think.. Today I needed to tune up while on the couch. I was to lazy to go grab my regular guitar tuner. Oh yeah, I have a tuner app don’t I? I was surprised at how well this app works. Great job Fender!
Really good
by hi 🦑 on 2020/10/06 21:17
Helps a lot with playing guitar because I’m always loosing my toon

Excellent
by runner abe on 2020/09/29 20:32
Just what I needed, super easy to use!
Never a problem
by valharp on 2020/09/28 19:54
I have never had a problem with tuning with this app - it corroborates exactly with my Snark on my classical guitar. Maybe it likes nylon strings more than steel? Dunno, but it’s always worked perfectly for me! I would love to see an Apple Watch version of this app, if that is technically possible (I have no idea if it is, but would be great!)
Love this app.
by garytexok on 2020/09/28 19:06
I am just learning to play the guitar and this app makes it so easy to tune my guitar. My Dad was a wonderful guitarist and I’m sure he would have liked to have had this wonderful app.
Don’t bother
by Pro player 3 on 2020/09/25 01:49
Ridiculous the amount of sensitivity the tuner has. Worthless.

Love guitar sounds sooooo good now accurate tuning

by 1093836291045 on 2020/09/22 00:26

Not clear
by jumbo vex on 2020/09/14 00:47
It gives the in tune signal then immediately gives the out of tune signal, so am I in tune or out of tune. I find it’s not working for beginners like me.
Tuning
by x sinsisndodnd on 2020/09/13 18:15
I keep trying to tune my guitar and the darn thing keeps going from one cord to another its so bad i just wish they cN fisx it
Popped a string !!
by rafpagan on 2020/09/13 00:56
Tuner kept telling me to “ Tune up “ on my E string . Eventually the string popped . Not sure what I did wrong . It’s my first time owning a bass and this is all new to me . Planning on changing out all the strings and buying myself a real tuner .
Awesome quick tune!
by regularjohn99 on 2020/09/13 00:00
Allow for quick and precise tuning!!!
Best thing

Seems to be a great app for tuning your guitar works great easy to use I highly recommended this app.
Meh
by johnxlocke on 2020/09/06 10:00
Sticks on key changing feature. Stays in standard. Get pano tuner instead.
broke my string
by playboi.qt on 2020/09/05 22:47
I was tuning to standard, on my 4th string, it broke.
It kept thinking I was playing the high E
by bad review time, rip fender on 2020/09/03 18:15
Pretty much every time I played a string it thought I was playing the high E string and told me “Too flat tune up”
Love this app!

Beginner and loving it!

I bit frustrating to tune
by DrawBiZombie on 2020/08/31 18:27
I used this and Auto-Tuning is driving me nuts! I would like to pick a note so that when I tune my E String on my Bass it doesn’t register it as the G String. It has happened multiple times
Microphone
by Yolo polo asho on 2020/08/30 02:13
The app is good for tuning but sometimes the microphone doesn't work so I have to delete the app then reget it so it actually works so I'm satisfied
Great app!!!
by Joesans on 2020/08/29 21:40
Very precise!!
Best tuning App ever!!!
by Jaymes Brass on 2020/08/27 14:25
As a college musician, I always have to be ready& in tune. With most clip on tuners, the battery craps out as soon as I need it. With the Fender Tuning app, all I have to do is pull out my phone and pluck a string. It’s great!
The tunings are wrong
by epicgamer4090 on 2020/08/26 21:32
When I go to tune my G string he tried to turn it to the B string. But when I do my B string ring it also goes to the B string
Wrong Chord
by Lalonhaque on 2020/08/26 19:58
In chord library C#m Chord is wrong.
Easy to use and accurate

Getting Back Into The Groove
by Gus From Outta Town on 2020/08/25 21:26
Hadn’t picked up my Left-handed electric guitar in over a year. I knew it was out of tune . With Fender Tune, I was back to practicing in less than 2 minutes! Super E-Z! Thank you, Fender Tune for offering the Free App😁
The tune is trash
by dogda16 on 2020/08/25 04:30
I tried to tune my ukulele and it wouldn’t work I tunes it way way too high and almost broke it so I wouldn’t recommend to people who just want to tune there instrument easily
Best Guitar Tuner!
by JenAus07 on 2020/08/24 22:42
This app is the best to tune your guitar. I been using it for two years now.
Best free tuner
by Awesome5100 on 2020/08/23 04:26
All the other tuners make you pay if you don’t want standard tuning, this app allowed you to tune your guitar anyway you need it.
Not even in tune with itself
by aboriginal nickname on 2020/08/22 23:41
The auto function allows you to ‘pluck’ a virtual string and compare that to the sound of your own instrument. It has a little Ven diagram to show how out of tune you are and says to high or too low. Well when you pluck the virtual string the microphone picks it up as sharp or flat.
Works great except for 6th string (E)
by .brandonj. on 2020/08/20 19:10
Every string works immediately when played and as picks it up as it should until I get to the 6th string. Takes multiple tries for it to even pick up that I’m plucking it. Not my phones mic, this is a brand new phone. After a few tries it eventually gets it and I make an adjustment only for it to stop picking it up again. It eventually gets there but quite annoying
This is f$&@ bull s$&@
by mr.awesome-tank stars on 2020/08/20 01:55
This is the worst most insufferable app out there it crashed 73 times and made me break all my strings
It’s good In my opinion
by thy butt scratcher on 2020/08/20 01:31
It’s good in my opinion
Terrible tuner
by Mason shae on 2020/08/18 17:56
I only use the tuner for when I want to play custom tunings and this app is terrible it says pluck a string even if I do it likes to glitch out and whenever I finish tuning which feels like an eternity it’s not even in tune
Good
by omegat3 on 2020/08/17 21:09
Fun & easy
Thanks...
by gjfjvjcidj on 2020/08/17 01:31
Normally this app would work at least I thought it would. I needed to tune my bass guitar so I found this app and started to tune the app kept saying to tune up constantly. I am new at bass so I didn’t know any better so I just kept tuning then my E string snapped. Thanks a lot!

Recommendation
by A.S. Mansour on 2020/08/11 15:44
This a a simple plain tuner and very easy to use. Therefore I recommend it to everyone who needs a tuner to go right away
JoscelynChi12
by JoscelynChi12 on 2020/08/10 22:11
I have been playing guitar for a little while, but I am not very good at tuning my guitar based off of just sound. When I first tried to tune my guitar using this app, the app instructed me to pluck a string, but I didn’t get why because nothing seemed to happen, I would appreciate if the app actually told you how you should adjust your strings. I would not recommend this app to beginners at all, but I would recommend it to advanced guitar players only.
Perfect for beginner guitarist
by ayusten on 2020/08/10 01:26
My teacher recommended this app and it helped me when my tuner broke. The app was so much easier than using a cheap tuner.
Ukulele tuner / guitar tuner
by 51 Ramon on 2020/08/09 05:34
I have owned and used tuners in the past but this the easiest tuner I’ve ever used. I have played guitar in the past but wanted to learn the ukulele so I could take it on the road when my wife and I go camping and see the USA. I didn’t know the names of the ukulele strings. It shows the names along with tuning aid. This will allow the beginner and professional alike with what they need to tune ukulele and guitar. Great product...
Easy but needs to support iPad

Doesn’t work well on iPad. Is iPhone-sized and doesn’t rotate to landscape mode (important for people using Magic Keyboard Case)

Just not that good
by jimbob1916 on 2020/08/03 16:07
Auto tuner feature: sporadically picks up the complete wrong string Oscillates a lot when you pluck a string My guitar sounds clearly slightly out of tune when I’m finished with it And most annoyingly when you get a string to the correct pitch the graphic does a theatrical ‘in-tune’ display which makes the UI unusable for a few seconds - annoying if you’re trying to une quickly
Pretty good
by ahgshheyjbshjvdigsigx on 2020/08/02 01:14
It doesn’t work as well as a real tuner but it gets the job done really well, not good for intimating though
Actual tuning is a mess!
by Sagegami on 2020/07/31 02:26
This tuning app gets constantly confused as to what string I’m on and as such what note I’m aiming for. It also routinely switches to thinking I’m going for a different note as soon as I get close to the note I want. It’s a very frustrating process and makes simply tuning my guitar take much longer than it should. There are better apps for tuning than this, and I’m going to be using those from now on.
Very surprised!
by mfvallllll on 2020/07/30 00:44
I’ve had my Yamaha chromatic tuner td-18 for 6year now and it’s all of the suden acting up. I didn’t know to trust an app but surprised me 100% im obsessed and now don’t have to buy another expensive tuner!
Great little tuning app
by BoxTheMuppet on 2020/07/29 16:13
Decided to teach my kids to play. This app helped get their $40 guitars in tune, and up and running, very quickly. Easy to use.

I started playing a few months ago I play hours a day but some things I can’t get right and nothing was helping but every app wants 50 a year and I’m broke but this masterpiece of an app 4 dollars of in app purchases and I can learn to solo like nothing it’s truly amazing hopefully I can follow my biggest inspiration and Learn more black pumas songs🎸🤟🏾
Needs a lot more work
by zedrdrdrjljoo on 2020/07/26 21:06
Its a stupid app . I tried tuning my ukulele, but it only would let me tune C when I tried to tune G all it did was switch back to C.

A bit off
by Potter Still Chill on 2020/07/23 00:45
Besides the fact that it sometimes gets the notes mixed up it is an amazing app and it is super functional
Broken, loved before this
by ReviewsFilmsSometimes on 2020/07/22 04:10
This app is broken now, it doesn’t recognize any of the chords. Fix it and you go back to 5 stars.
Needs iPad Support
by Chris MF Smith on 2020/07/19 14:17
Since it was probably meant for all iOS but it needs landscape function so you can use with iPad. Add the ability to rotate app screen. I’d give it higher stars but it needs that function especially with the iPad Pros.
Horrible runner
by Josh 0120 on 2020/07/14 23:58
Horrible runner. Only picks up sound 60% of the time. And is so off
Great free app
by Faceles Man on 2020/07/12 00:05
Finally somebody’s not charging you for using something other than standard tuning. Makes me want to buy another fender. Bravo.
It’s okay but my string popped because of this app
by MiniBlud on 2020/07/10 02:04
I didn’t have anything covering my microphone and it kept saying something that it wasn’t, I’m a beginner and then it kept saying tune it up and I did and then pop, my string broke because of this app confused by what string I was plucking, I was on a “e” but it kept saying a, which now I know.
Great App
by vmqx on 2020/07/09 06:15

Pro tuner
by leesaucy on 2020/07/06 21:11
I paid for this app when it included the pro tuner and now I have to pay more to get the feature I already paid for??
Problems they need to resolve
by chicke50889876 on 2020/07/06 14:00
It’s okay sometimes they mess up which note your trying to tune like for example if your trying to tune d string it might mess it up with G string
Pretty solid.
by RiceGodJonas on 2020/07/05 11:42
I use this app time to time for tuning and it doesn’t let me down! Whenever I forget my tuner, I use this app because it’s pretty reliable for tuning my bass guitar.
Mhm

Fender tune

Very usefull
Easy for beginner to use to tune
by Steefannie on 2020/06/28 18:10
My 8 year old daughter just started playing guitar and can’t keep track of her little clip-on tuner. This app is always available, easy for her use, and makes tuning her own guitar easy. The basic tuner is all we use and it’s a life-saver. Thanks fender!
Doesn’t work with bass
by Bean Bender on 2020/06/26 20:04
When I try to tune the E string, it picks up for a split second then disappears. It’s a problem this app because other tuning apps work perfectly.
Easy to use!
by Crambeaux on 2020/06/25 12:32
As a near total beginner I was intimidated to tune my guitar at first, but this makes it simple and pleasant, and seems clearer than others because the screen is simple.
Fender Tune app
by 8@tman on 2020/06/23 16:49
This is my goto app for regular guitar tuning. I have built in tuning electronics on a couple guitars, but the Fender tune app is more reliable and therefore more trusted.
Awesome
by . . . . . .. . . . on 2020/06/23 09:06
I always use this to tune when I play bass and it sounds perfect! Great app does the job.
Bad.
by NotInTulsa on 2020/06/23 03:03
World’s worst tuner! Thanks for nothing.
Looks good but not that fleshed out
by Brandyn G on 2020/06/20 21:06
It’s got a good interface, and it can be helpful for beginners, but I was hoping that the $8 I spent would allow me to get more advanced information about alternate scales and tunings. There is a comprehensive list of chords for standard tuning but no option to change the tuning. If they added chords and scales for alternate tunings I will change this rating to 5 stars
Broke a string
by Maria_Aburto on 2020/06/18 23:19
I was super excited to get the app because the reviews were so good. Once I downloaded it the app seemed to be malfunctioning. It would not detect the noise of the guitar or it would say I was playing the D note when I tried to play the E note. Then after about 20 mins of trying to tune the high E string I got to the top E that’s deeper and it kept saying it wasn’t in tune and then it my guitar string broke. I am extremely frustrated with the app !
Worthless tuner
by Jwbeev on 2020/06/17 23:03
Extremely frustrating tuner. Unresponsive to most notes and horribly inaccurate. I can’t believe I paid money to unlock further features on this app. Doesn’t even do what it’s supposed to. Going back to the other tuner I used to use from the App Store. Already it’s 100% more accurate and responsive. So I know it’s not my phone that’s the problem.
Smh...
by TheOfficialKal on 2020/06/16 23:03
The app was okay at first... but then I got to the G acoustic guitar note and it told me to keep going higher and higher. I was like smh okay then and went higher like it TOLD ME TO until my string broke. I was and still am furious.
It used to be better.
by Lost_Symphonies on 2020/06/16 22:58
This app used to work really well for me, but over the past year or two, I’ve had problem after problem with it. So much of the time it won’t give me any info on where my tuning is. I’ll see the decibel meter working at the bottom, but nothing shows up to tell me how to tune. Other times it shows up, but it thinks I’m tuning high e, when I’m really tuning the A string. Then, and this happens 9 times out of 10, it gets stuck on the high e string and I have to close the app to get it to recognize other strings. I always make sure I have absolute silence when using this, so that it only hear the guitar, but even then it doesn’t always recognize what I’m playing.
Awful app
by shashu99 on 2020/06/16 14:06
When I try to tune my bass or ukulele it works on two strings and no others can you please send me a recommendation on how to tune or fix/update the app thank you.
It’s fender quality for fender guitars
by Neekolul on 2020/04/13 02:35
It does what it should do and more to help beginning guitar players get a feel for their new guitar. I’m assuming the reviewers finding problems with the auto tuner have bad mic quality in their phones, or are plucking the strings sloppily, coupled that with the finicky auto tuner feature with the app itself. A good tip for those using the auto tuner to save time: if the tuner is giving you weird and mixed responses, don’t continue to tighten or loosen up the strings or else you’ll accidentally break your string because the auto tuner is stuck on telling you your string is too flat. Check instead with the manual tuner to see where you’re at with tuning your guitar and then go back to the auto tuner. Hopefully this helps you keep your guitar in proper condition and save you the hassle of buying more strings. Waste more time being careful with the tuner instead of wasting money buying new strings.
Quick and clean tune each time works for me!
by MercyB4Sacrifice on 2017/08/21 01:55
Out of tune never works. I've never developed an ear for tuning just right. I have an old dreadnaught with medium gauge "oh-maybe-nylon wrapped with metal" strings or something -- I threw the package away -- all from before the dawn of time. I get an excellent tune in about 2 minutes with Fender-tune. I've little experience with the broad range of options out there. I'm too busy playing my guitar to look far right now. I'm so ashamed -- but not really -- this product works very well for now. What I mostly need is perhaps the ability to quickly tune to a better frequency -- but later -- for now I play for pleasure, and this product gives me more pleasure than any electronic tuner I've used. When well tuned, my guitar nearly plays itself.
Outstandingly accurate
by Jaredsw01 on 2019/07/11 21:46
This app is incredible. I have two acoustic guitars and one has a built in tuner, but the other does not and I still have not purchased a tuner for it so I have been unable to play it. Well, thanks to this app, I was able to tune it nicely using the auto tune feature. I was quite surprised at how accurate the tune detection is and how it can recognize the difference between you plucking a string and any background noise around you (I was actively talking while tuning and even double checked that it tuned correctly and it did). This definitely deserves 5 stars. Of course it won’t be as accurate as a normal tuner, but it can definitely get pretty close!
Good But Please Fix This For Safety Of All Guitars

This is a great app. When tuning, you get it right every time with this app. However, I believe this one thing needs to be addressed because I don’t know if this has happened to anyone else. I recently just got a Jackson Bass Guitar, and as of writing this post I had it for not even 3 hours. I used the app and the Rumble 25 amp that Fender also built to tune it. I was tuning my G string and it was saying it was still -49cts when out of no where, the guitar string just broke. Now I have to drive back 20 miles to get my brand new guitar restringed, and add to the near $800 bucks I’ve spent on it alone. I don’t know if this has happened to anyone else, but I do think that this needs to be addressed. Something needs to be done so Bass Guitars are easier to tune. Other than that, this app really is great.
Made me break a string!
by Cabematt911 on 2020/01/11 02:02
This app was great! When it worked! It’s always broken, either it doesn’t detect noise at all, thinks you’re playing a strong your not playing, or makes you tune way beyond what it is! I tried to tune my guitar and it said the e string wasn’t low enough so tunes lower, still not good, ok so even lower then, still not good, I tune lower and the string breaks because the app mislead me! When it DID work which was rarely, it was great! This was just the final straw for me, I only ever used this app because it was free but I think the creators know that and know no matter how many times people complain they’ll still get downloads, and I’m not the first one to complain about this, it’s been complained about for a year now! Has it been fixed? Nope, until this is fixed I’m never coming back to this app nor will I change this review (like the developers care anyways) and I’m definitely warning my friends not to use this either.
Thank You Fender !
by Rayme38 on 2018/04/08 16:35
It’s so nice to have a guitar tuner with me at all times. Seems to work just fine, i have found myself needing one every once in a while, when at camp, and when playing on other people’s instruments or any other instances. I always seem to have my phone with me so kudos to fender for keeping everyone in tune. No problems with pitch, and I like to tune 1/2 step down, and no problems setting it to do just that. When I open the app, I don’t have to reset the pitch every time I use it. VERY NICE TO HAVE FOR FREE! Thank You Fender
App review
by GatorNation2019 on 2019/03/19 02:59
I downloaded the Fender App and I was satisfied at first When I downloaded the app so I could tune my guitar but later I had to retune it because I had put a new strings when I went to re-tune using this app the app could not tell me the difference between any of the cords or tunings following that it couldn’t tell me the correct cord for Each string. Being this app is from The fender music company I am very displeased at the apps performance I had no issues the first time the second time I had multiple issues I am not a pro Tuner-subscriber and I did not pay for that The microphone on my iPhone was on and it was close enough to the amplifier where it could pick up the sound and still no results again I am very displeased with this performance I will be sure to spread the word and heat warning of this app I will never utilize this app or download it again.

From a company as well known as Fender I would really expect their software/firmware be at the highest standard possible. I’ve tested this tuning app about 22 times now with other professional grade tuners at its side and have broken countless strings while conducting these experiments because the application would say I haven’t yet reached the desired note when other tuners have said I was way over. I have tested with numerous guitars that have come into the shop after getting complaint after complaint about the customers who use the app to tune their instruments. The app just cannot pick up the sound fast enough or at all sometimes. From a professional guitar tech in the field for 17 years I DO NOT recommend anyone download this app. Unless you like driving back and forth to the music shop to buy more strings.
It used to be better.
by Lost_Symphonies on 2020/06/16 22:58
This app used to work really well for me, but over the past year or two, I’ve had problem after problem with it. So much of the time it won’t give me any info on where my tuning is. I’ll see the decibel meter working at the bottom, but nothing shows up to tell me how to tune. Other times it shows up, but it thinks I’m tuning high e, when I’m really tuning the A string. Then, and this happens 9 times out of 10, it gets stuck on the high e string and I have to close the app to get it to recognize other strings. I always make sure I have absolute silence when using this, so that it only hear the guitar, but even then it doesn’t always recognize what I’m playing.
BS App
by Retoohs1 on 2018/06/19 22:52
Thought because it was Fender that it would be cool. It isn’t. I checked it out for a little bit and then deleted it. The cool parts of the app needs to be purchased. With an acoustic/electric that has a built in tuner and a snark for my electrics, I don’t need the free part of the app. If you really want an excellent app get Tabs. Also there are many sites that offer free rhythm beats so you don’t need this app for that. As for lessons, I’ve found it difficult to follow especially on a phone as opposed to a live guitar teacher. You’ll spend more time going back to see something again, and hoping you don’t go too far back, in order to watch it again. All in all, very disappointed that I wasted my time with this but felt compelled to voice my opinion.
Accurate & User Friendly
by mrrockandroll on 2018/10/21 04:31
Very accurate, user friendly, and lots of sweet features! The pro version is definitely worth the price and gives you lots of scales, different chord voicings for all the chords and a nice variety of usable drum rhythms. Keep in mind that if you place your mic/phone too close it might pick up the tones/vibrations of more than one string so placement is important (more of an issue with a 12-string than with a 6-string). The best features, imo, are the in app purchases, which are all great for the price.
Great little app for guitar players!
by Rush91 on 2017/08/12 21:59
Handy to just be able to take out your phone and tune up the axe. Has settings for electric guitar and bass, as well as acoustic guitar. Has all the tunings a player needs from standard to drop d, 1/2 step down and so on. Works well and I have found it to be very accurate. Fender put their name on it, so one would expect nothing but quality from one of the best names in guitar! If you're a beginner, casual player, or seasoned vet, this app will be worth having.
Great tuner
by NeilMichael on 2017/08/22 03:06
Works excellent as a tuner. I wish it had some other features like a metronome and a practice timer. That would be really cool as an all around basic bare bones practice app. I always tune up first, then kick off the metronome (in another app) and set the iPhone timer for five minutes and practice scales. Then I practice chords for five minutes. Then I practice sight reading and sheet music. I don't know maybe there's more people like me that would use those other two features daily as well. But, nonetheless I understand this app is a tuner and it does that well.
BROKE MY STRING
by Actress105 on 2020/01/22 19:14
This app is a shame to the fender brand. I had just got my bass guitar in the mail and was excited to start playing. I downloaded the tuner app as was suggested in their online tutorials. I became very frustrated when i first started using it. It kept telling me I was playing g when I was playing e and the same with other strings. When it finally said the right string it kept telling me it was too flat or too sharp. I kept following the apps instructions and continued to tighten it. Soon enough my string broke, just an hour after receiving the bass. I don’t suggest that anyone use this tuning app even though it’s the only free option. It’s obvious that this is a money grab for fender and they do not care about the quality.
Great especially for a beginner
by weirder things on 2018/12/26 08:51
I got an electric guitar this Christmas and I had all the basics, the guitar, the amp, and a few pics, but I didn’t have one of those clip on tuners to help me tune my new guitar. So when I found out that there was a free app to help tune my guitar, I was so happy. It’s great considering it’s free, it’s not the best though, but at least I could instantly tune my guitar on the spot, and it does a pretty good job, again considering it’s free. If your not sure about this app, it doesn’t hurt to try it out.
Remarkably easy to use
by Grazpop on 2017/08/19 18:42
I tried four or five other tuning apps; they were either focused on extreme accuracy (meaning they wavered and never allowed you to stop getting the guitar in tune), or they were dumbed down to the point that you didn't really know what you were doing. This one hits it out of the park by showing a clear visual representation of whether you are close enough to make the guitar sound good or not, with no extraneous information. Bravo!
Best ever
by that one randome chik on 2018/12/27 20:58
I know absolutely nothing about instruments let alone guitars, and I was able to tune my guitar in about 10 minutes. This app is easy to use and understand, but also fairly basic. All you have to to is pluck a string of your guitar, and it senses which string it is and if it’s in tune or how to make it tuned. My guitar came with a ‘tuner’ and I personally have no common sense and it was very hard for me to use, but this app is so simple and easy to understand. 😁
Amazing
by SH - Febuary 27, 2017 on 2020/04/03 20:45
I realized my regular tuner had a dead battery in the middle of the covid 19 quarantine. My guitar didn’t sound I turn and I wanted to play it, I was weary about a tuning app but I had no options and it worked wonderfully! I have since been able to get my other tuner a battery and I used it on my guitar the next time it needed it, and I have to say I prefer the free app over what I bought from the store! I highly recommend!
Ukulele tuner / guitar tuner
by 51 Ramon on 2020/08/09 05:34
I have owned and used tuners in the past but this the easiest tuner I’ve ever used. I have played guitar in the past but wanted to learn the ukulele so I could take it on the road when my wife and I go camping and see the USA. I didn’t know the names of the ukulele strings. It shows the names along with tuning aid. This will allow the beginner and professional alike with what they need to tune ukulele and guitar. Great product...
Broken Strings
by Celeste_yma on 2019/01/04 03:18
I downloaded this app so I could finally tune my guitar that had been out of tune for a while. I saw this app and decided to give it a try even though I can tune with my ears. While I was tuning my G string on my acoustic guitar, it broke! It kept telling me to tune down and when I played it a couple seconds before it broke it said to tune down more. So I tuned it down again like it said and it just snapped! I was afraid it would happen to my other strings so I delete it immediately. You can get this app if you want but my experience with it was absolutely horrible!! Just please be careful if you do decide to get it. It’s not always right...
Useful at times, mostly frustrating.
by Ggebhahagfcirjcej on 2018/11/24 21:00
This tuner app is convenient when you don’t have a good tuner. My tuner only tunes to standard. This tuner can tune to anything you need, you can even add custom tuning. The accuracy, though, is something that needs to be worked on. It would also help a lot if I could select which string I’m tuning, because when I try to tune from standard to drop B, it always incorrectly guesses which string I’m picking, sometimes not even registering at all. But, despite it’s flaws, it’s better than nothing.
There are better tuners
by carterwahl on 2018/12/07 03:27
The way that this app displays the tuner is silly. It look nice and sleek like an apple commercial, but it’s not intuitive to how a person tunes their guitar. I have wasted a lot of time only to have this app tell me I’m perfectly in tune, when really I’m a couple cents sharp or flat. Sounds like a nit pick but for an app whose purpose is to tune my guitar, it should be more accurate. I can tune my guitar approximately by ear I don’t need an app for that. I do give them props for having the manual function allowing you to tune to a frequency, thought Download pano tuner it is a much better tuner.
DON’T GET THIS APP!
by Mrs.Warden on 2020/01/06 00:56
So I have always loved music and for Christmas I got an acoustic guitar so I wanted to tune it the best I could so I read some reviews and got the app. At first I thought it was an amazing app I told all my friends “get finder tune”. But know I regret it. So when I was tuning my guitar on one of the cords it kept on telling me to go higher and higher so that’s what I did. The next thing I knew was I was in tears! All thanks to this crappy app one of the strings had snapped! If u r reading this review do NOT get this stupid app! It is a waist of time witch I can be spending playing with my friends on fortnite or go to there house so... I have warned y’all...get this app at ur own risk.
Possible power consumption
by UsherMocha on 2019/03/16 11:56
Downloaded this last night to tune up my bass. Seems to work well enough though I’m only a beginner. Only thing is that I went to bed with 35% power and woke up to a dead phone and iOS telling me this app used 56% of my battery consumption in the last 24 hours. The vast majority of that was background activity. So while I like the app, I suggest making sure it’s shut down after you’re done tuning.
Just perfect cheap helpful and smooth
by Ej3625 on 2020/07/27 08:08
I started playing a few months ago I play hours a day but some things I can’t get right and nothing was helping but every app wants 50 a year and I’m broke but this masterpiece of an app 4 dollars of in app purchases and I can learn to solo like nothing it’s truly amazing hopefully I can follow my biggest inspiration and Learn more black pumas songs🎸🤟🏾
Very handy tuner!
by Dopple-Depper on 2018/04/01 22:27
Most apps you’ll find of this functionality will constantly get in your face about buying a full version with lessons and what have you. This application simply meets you needs and permits plenty of room for learning how to properly tune stringed instruments you get a hold of. Ask me what this app needs to get better and my answer will remain; nothing.
Helpful for a beginner
by 🐍🐲🐉TW on 2018/01/13 19:52
Just picked up a couple of guitars from a friend. I have never played and my kids and I thought we could take some online lessons. I would have no idea how to tune a guitar and do not have a ear for it. Thank you Fender for making our lessons sound better than they would have. Easy to tune and we all think it is fun to use. It is magical.
Works great except for 6th string (E)
by .brandonj. on 2020/08/20 19:10
Every string works immediately when played and as picks it up as it should until I get to the 6th string. Takes multiple tries for it to even pick up that I’m plucking it. Not my phones mic, this is a brand new phone. After a few tries it eventually gets it and I make an adjustment only for it to stop picking it up again. It eventually gets there but quite annoying
Great app
by Opiemallow on 2020/04/25 06:01
I have just started to play the guitar, and I have been taking online classes. The classes said to make sure your guitar is in tune, and I already have a built in tuner, but it was a little tricky to adjust. I downloaded this app and it it amazing. I can hear the notes and compare to my own guitar, and it can test to make sure I am not flat. Really helpful!
Soooo annoying
by JACEROD80.4 on 2020/05/26 18:23
Alright so I was trying to tune my guitar down a half step right I was using this app because it’s the only one that lets me do that for free and it was so difficult I would be picking a string and it wouldn’t hear it I restarted the app it still didn’t work I even uninstalled it and the installed it again the same thing happened it couldn’t hear me well and I got so frustrated I even tried plucking it slowly and I would work for a second and then it couldn’t hear me I would not recommend
So much better that the clip on type!
by Kingnomad33 on 2018/04/14 16:20
So much better than the clip on one that came with the guitar. Makes playing so much more enjoyable. It tells you which way to bring strings in time and how far to go. When it’s right the app shows you a full circle of the sound from pluck until it’s done making the sound.
Need to fix some things
by hi cera on 2019/08/10 05:00
I was tuning my bass and I was on the second string down and I was tuning it but the app said it needs to be turned more so I kept on tuning is slowly but it broke. Maybe there should be a policy of if you string broke you get a free pack for free because strings aren’t cheep especially if you just started but maybe either fix the app or people will start to complain more and more.
Seems okay.
by Tomnc on 2018/06/08 15:19
For one reason or another, I have a hard time with getting Fender apps to function properly. I purchased this this morning, and the app doesn’t seem to realize I purchased it. I was under the impression the were song tabs and play alongs I can’t seem to access it, unless the songs are on Fender Play, which I own. I guess what I find misleading, there is no place for me to sign in, which gives me the idea the app does not realize I own it.
Never a problem
by valharp on 2020/09/28 19:54
I have never had a problem with tuning with this app - it corroborates exactly with my Snark on my classical guitar. Maybe it likes nylon strings more than steel? Dunno, but it’s always worked perfectly for me! I would love to see an Apple Watch version of this app, if that is technically possible (I have no idea if it is, but would be great!)
Best tuning app out there
by Coolkid2777 on 2018/04/11 18:36
I usually do not review apps, but this tuning app has been so helpful to me I just had to leave a review. I use it all the time, it’s the perfect tool. I especially love that it has multiple different tuning other than just standard, where in other apps you would have to pay for this option. Great app!!!
Nice for a beginner.
by echo4sierra on 2017/09/10 17:20
Started playing just a coupe months ago and this is easy to use and large! My bass came with a chrome cast tuner which is sometimes hard to see (especially the needle and in bright light) and needs batteries. This is always with me and easy to understand with a little happy sound when in tune! Thanks!
Awesome Tuner
by dont_download_4eva on 2018/06/10 15:36
I just got a brand new ukulele the other day, and I was so excited to use it. But then the issue of tuning it was a huge problem. The portable tuner that came with the ukulele sucked, and it said that my C string was the A. So I went to my music teacher and she tuned it, thank god, and she showed me the app that helped her. This app is a god send! I’m so happy that I can tune my ukulele anytime I want. Yay!
Better than Most!
by Blytzor9 on 2020/02/25 14:37
I have used a few different free tuning amps. I find Fender’s to be one of the most accurate and stable. I have not tried their premium version but I like what I’m seeing and hearing so far. Fender just seems to put more care and effort in to most of what they offer their customers. Keep up the great work guys!
App review
by nawrea on 2020/05/27 22:05
I’ve used most of the apps and I find this one the easiest to use and with alternative tunings built in. I like to play a lot in drop D and Open E so when re tuning from standard I enjoy the fact their is nothing more to purchase and you can change tunings quickly and easily.
this app is bs
by PurpleHippo411 on 2018/11/23 21:50
i’ve only had my guitar for a few days and i decided to download this app to help with tuning. it worked okay the first time(it took a long time to get it to work) but the next time it told me that one of my strings wasn’t high enough. but even me being an amateur knew that it it was fine. so I kept tightening but it still told me it wasn’t high enough. i trusted it and kept turning it until it broke. now I have to go get it fixed. i don’t think this app is accurate at all and i don’t recommend wasting your time downloading it.
Didn’t know what string I played
by ThatBoiHEE on 2020/04/29 23:05
Every time I used this app it and I played a string it said a different one was playing it rarely got the right string and when it did I would change from to sharp to loose or just right then immediately just change to something else
Awesome!!!
by Pumpkinmunkin on 2020/04/18 18:17
Great app!!! Totally recommend!!!! This app is FREE I love tunes my guitar perfectly I don’t even have the pro and it is still amazing! Get this app you will not regret it!!!!😉 Edit: I have had this app for a few months now. It worked great until it could not figure out a b chord from a low e chord it got really annoying so do to that I had to delete it I do not regret downloading this app cause it was PERFECT for the first FEW months but it has glitches now that make the app a 3 star for me! Sorry for this review but I still recommend downloading this app because it tuned all my guitars PERFECTLY . I did just change my guitar strings so that could have been the problem but still would have been a great 5 star app if this did not happen!😊
Broke my Guitar
by oliviarocks16 on 2020/04/09 00:09
It was all going GREAT, until the last string (E). It kept telling me it was too flat and to turn it up so I did and at every little time i turned it up i would play the string again to see if anything changed. It would go up a bit then tell me it was still too flat and to keep going, so i listened to it. It snapped my string, and since most guitar places near me are closed I can’t fix it.😑 It worked for all my other strings though, so thanks for that.
Literally 5 minutes or less to tune perfectly
by Gonzos#1fan on 2018/01/03 21:17
Fender tune is so freaking easy to use. It will occasionally pick up on the wrong string but you can easily fix that by tuning up or down a little. My friend didn't know how to tune his ukulele so I tuned it within 40 seconds with this. It's just too easy!!!
For a free app
by Slumerican steely on 2018/03/06 23:17
I have been back and forth on this app, if there is other instruments playing my device (i6s+) device has a hard time picking you out. The update made it a little better but for a free app I like the versatility from bass to guitar and drop d or c at couple clicks in set up. It’s and decent would recommend.
Love it!
by Snooper5 on 2017/12/08 02:54
The Fender mobile app tuner is something I use all the time rather than lugging a clip on since I always have my cell phone. I can go into a guitar center a music store no worrying about having to ask for a tuner as I can reach for myself phone instant be ready to thank. And it’s super accurate
A good app but did something change?
by Seen in Chicago on 2018/04/28 20:15
With the new update I feel that the tuning ability has changed. Oh and I am not crazy about having to to choose from a menu now. However my real concern is that the app seems to be less intelligent for lack of a better word. It seems to get confused about which string is being tuned.

by JoscelynChi12 on 2020/08/10 22:11
I have been playing guitar for a little while, but I am not very good at tuning my guitar based off of just sound. When I first tried to tune my guitar using this app, the app instructed me to pluck a string, but I didn’t get why because nothing seemed to happen, I would appreciate if the app actually told you how you should adjust your strings. I would not recommend this app to beginners at all, but I would recommend it to advanced guitar players only.
Never Tunes Right
by The Very Dissapointed Customer on 2020/05/06 22:31
I got this electric guitar for my birthday and haven’t picked it up in a little while then since corona I decided I might try it again, everything was fine the lesson app is good but when I started using the tuner it would never tune it right. I was like well maybe I’m not doing it right so I went to a pro tuner and it said I was tuned but this app didn’t and half the time it just wouldn’t even hear my guitar even when I put it RIGHT next to it. I recommend you get a clip on tuner called super tight by the company snark.
