Guitar Tuner!
Description
An easy-to-use accurate audio/visual tuner for your guitar. Provides a simple interface to visually check whether the pitch for each string is low or high, and lets you "see" the pitch change as you wind/unwind the string tuning machines. Tuning has never been easier. Shows exactly how many cents (1/100ths of a semitone) a note is out-of-tune. - Extremely accurate - within 1 cent (1/100th of a semitone) of each note with sub-second response time. - Developed in Austin, Texas, the "Live Music Capital of the World". - Use the standard tuning E-A-D-G-B-E or one of many alternate tunings: regular tunings such as Minor Third, special tunings such Drop D, open tunings such Open C, lower tunings, higher tunings. - Adjust pitch incrementally from 400 to 480 Hz or up/down a half/full step from A440. (The International Organization for Standardization specifies the frequency for the note A in the treble stave as 440 Hz. ISO 16:1975). - Tap to hear an accurate note if tuning by ear instead of using visual tuning. - Enable/disable Auto-string-detect (not recommended for noisy environments).

First of all, to all those complaining it hasn’t been updated - it doesn’t need to be! It works great, who cares if it fills the entire screen on my iPhone 11? There’s a lot out there, but this is always my go-to. Super simple and easy to use, it lets you know just how close or far off you are. Love the interface. Great work! I’ll be using this for years to come.

This is a much better way of tuning then the unit I bought and keep in my guitar case. It seems much more accurate and I like being able to listen to the tone I am tuning to.

Easy to Use, Very Accurate
by EHawks6505 on 2018/07/31 23:34
For a tuner on a phone, iPad, etc, it does its job very well. It’s especially handy being able to have the selected string play what it should sound like!

This is the nicest tuning app I've used. Easy to read and accurate. Tip: Lay your phone on top of the guitar above and to the left of the sound hole, resting against the lower end of the fretboard. You'll get a great signal.
Simply the best
by Poppernickel on 2017/08/22 14:23
I don't need tuners for my guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele. This app covers them all, and I don't have to remember where I put it after I last used it. OK, I can't tune my piano or Sousaphone with it, but every musician should have this app.

Pretty Good!
by Hbarski on 2017/07/20 18:08
For my Amatuer ear, it is pretty accurate & I like using my izpjone to tune verse other implements.
My favorite tuner!
by Charlie Senn on 2017/06/29 01:53
I use this all the time to tune my guitar and it's quick and effective! Way better than one of those tuners you buy at like Guitar Center.
Spike
by Carrera Mike on 2017/06/11 22:03
I like the center spike of the indicator. You could use it to further fine tune to precise key. Not just seeing the green when its in tune. Also I could tell when strings are starting to wear out, that spike start to flatten.
great app

My favorite tuning app bar none
by adaptiveagile on 2017/02/08 22:00
For the longest time I keep reminding myself to review this app. Anyway, highly recommended and the premium version is the way to go. I love pretty much everything about this app. I like the spectrum type diagram style for each string, and how the frequency shifts from pluck to termination of the vibrations. Love the massive selection of alternate tunings, the interface, etc. The perfect little app. For best results when not plugged in, I position the iphone so that the bottom is resting on the headstock to pick up the vibrations. I've played around with different placements and this gives me the best results. Holding the phone with your left hand securing the bottom part (with the mic) firmly against the guitar's wood while adjusting the tuners with my right hand gives me the best results. For my headless guitars, I hold the phone on the metal plate and that gives even better resonance. Since the sound of a string in a noisy environment can be hard to capture by all tuning apps, I've found that they work even better by vibrations, where I think the buzzing of the resounding wood against the phone matches the sonic frequency of the string through the microphone. That's my theory anyway. The fact that vibrations work better than remote sound capture would probably support my theory. FYI, if you tap the little (i) icon, you can choose auto detect string. I don't use it, but mention it because I think a lot of new users might be confused at first because the default setting requires that u first choose the string to be tuned. So u might sit there plucking a string and wondering why nothing is happening. Select the string and then pluck the note unless u toggle the auto-detect function. Oh, and heads up. If you're plugged in and press the string for a reference tone, TURN DOWN YOUR VOLUME so u don't blow out your eardrums and jump through the ceiling. Has caught me off guard a couple times :) developer should default sound down to low levels to protect user hearing when headphone is detected. 5 star app. Get it.

It might be the best tuner couple of years ago, but now I'd rather recommend GuitarTuna by Yousician - it's much more user-friendly and free!!!
Very satisfying!!!!
by Chavage on 2016/04/14 01:16
This app is an amazing tuner. It is totally worth your money. It lets you tune to any tuning that you want very easily. If you are a beginner then it is very easy to use. I personally have been playing for five years and through all five this is the best and easiest tuner I've used.👌👌

I use it for guitar, and it has tunings for my uke, too. If I knew more, I could be using it in a lot of different ways, but there are more tunings than this beginner understands yet. They will be there when I need them. Thanks for keeping me in tune!

Great tuner
by Cc deville on 2015/08/07 14:00
I love this tuner and use it every day. It has replaced a number of physical tuners that Are now gathering dust. PLEASE add OPEN E tuning. I play a lot of slide guitar and I constantly want to quickly change accurately between open tunings or to tune my guitar up when I am playing in open E. Thanks
Excellent.

This is my favorite guitar tuning app. Able to tune the guitar in the multiple keys. Only needs an update for open E tuning.
I wish I could add custom timings
by Bilsabab on 2015/06/03 03:58
If there's a way to add a custom tuning like the New Standard I haven't found a way.

I can never use the regular guitar tuner and I always had to wait on someone else to tune my guitar because my hands so small. This app fixed the problem now I can see how to tune while actually tuning the guitar myself. If u ever had a problem in the past trying to look at the tuner and hold the proper strings down at the same time 5 STARS Go To This App. It's small so I can put it where I can see it and actually tune a Fender Jazzmaster for the first time because my hands ate so small 1954 Fende Jazzmaster is happy and the one my husband bought me for this Christmas So a 56 year old jazzmaster and a brand new one and I are all very happy Best App You Can Buy............5 STARS
The best just got better
by JoeMitchell79 on 2011/07/19 19:40
I've been a guitar instructor for 8+ years, a musician for much longer and I've had never really cared for electronic tuners, I instead prefer tuning by ear with a piano. However, this app is the first tuning app I've seen that 1) Is NOT excessively frustrating, inaccurate, and incredibly slow to use and 2) Is actually very intuitive and kind of fun! Quite the opposite of all things in #1 and in my opinion, that's a SERIOUS accomplishment! UPDATE: With the latest update, this app has gone above and beyond. They added the lower tunings I asked for and made it universal. This is the only tuner on the app store worth owning. Bravo!
There Is No Finer Guitar Tuner
by what a world what a world on 2012/10/20 15:17
For over the past 40+ years that I have been playing guitars I have gone through the entire gamut of guitar tuners, everything from a tuning fork to the piano key, to the portable clip ons, and right through many rack and strobe units. But this app is definitely the best one I have come across so far. It is really, really easy to use, and the algorithm used is outstanding. Of course, my favorite feature is the graphics used to inform me that my guitar is in tune. If this app was in its own packaging, it's own small unit, then I would be buying multiple units, one for each of my several guitars.
Great App!!!
by mgardiner on 2012/11/18 17:17
I don't write many reviews, but felt compelled to do so for such a useful and well designed app such as this one. It works great. It's intuitive and easy to use without any instructions. I used it for my acoustic and had no trouble tuning my instrument. The feature I liked best was how I was able to change the tuning for my guitar to other than standard tuning (like open tuning) and even adjust the pitch setting for half step up or down. You can easily see when your guitar tuning is within range in the display. I love it!
Only prob is low E
by Dragonamant on 2011/12/15 07:58
Works as advertised even with a cheap acoustic. Took me a minute to figure out how to tell what to do when I was so far off I couldn't see my note on the visualization. The +\- cents helps a lot. Tried with auto detect and without; works much better when you select your string manually. Only issue is the low E doesn't register enough or fast enough for the visual to mark its frequency. Fix that for 5stars I noticed it kinda helped if I lifted the guitar body away from my body. Tried a FREE tuner app first, but had trouble matching the notes by ear The visualization on this works so much better to get it right.
One of the best music iOS apps
by Connor York - expert musician on 2012/01/05 00:42
Wow! One of the most important things when playing guitar is first and foremost that the guitar is in tune. This tuner is one of the most accurate I've used. If you have an iOS device and need a tuner this is the one to turn too. It is honestly better, and more accurate, than standalone tuners. Plus you can chose different tunings you want to tune too. I would highly recommend this tuner, even more than a standard standalone tuner that you would buy at a music retailer, to any musician in need of one.
Works great,finally playing again
by square sorbet on 2014/08/26 05:51
Works great and simple to use. I always used my tuner on my old digitech pedal. Lost the ac adapter and haven't played in a few years. Got this a few months ago and finally got my bass and electric out and tuned them a lot faster than before. It did the job great and was a lot cheaper than buying a tuner. Im back to fun but still need to find that ac adapter, not for tuning but for the effects. Don't need that for tuning anymore plus one of the switches was going anyways.

Best tuner app hands down
by XeroTheory on 2012/04/17 20:21
I tune with this over my chromatic tuner, Guitar Rig, or any other tuner I have access to. My only issue is that I tend to play on lower tunings (Drop C, sometimes lower) and the only way I can use this app for those lower tunings is to mix and match from the presets until I get all 6 strings in tune. I have to tune the low string on my 7-string by ear because this app only covers 6 string tunings. Hopefully in an update, custom tunings and 7+ strings will get some recognition. Otherwise, this app is phenomenal.
Great precision
by Culpa Joe on 2013/03/01 13:33
I got this app because it displays "cents," 100th of a tone. It's very precise and allows you to make very subtle adjustments that bring the overall guitar into tune (saw this technique on James Taylor's website). The app is easy to use and, like a said, VERY precise. I couldn't find a similar tuner for less than $100. I have to use the iPhone mic, because I don't have a guitar input device for my phone. That problem's on me, though. The app is guitar specific, and only picks up preset notes (though there are alternate tuning settings like Drop D and Open G, no DADGAD, though).
No complains
by RobArone on 2014/01/20 23:57
I have been using this app for months now, and I can't think of anything I would change. I have not tried any others, but this app is very simple and straight forward. It's on my phone and tablet and always with me. I love the different turnings. I can tune up standard all day long, but non standard takes time. And I wouldn't bother if I was on the road. But this app lets me quickly change and be ready to play . This is my favorite app.
Best tuning app out there
by MChild62 on 2014/01/15 21:20
I've tried several tuning apps and devices, including those that come with various effects and amps, or that are included in other programs like Jamup. This app is the one thing that does something better than Jamup. Why? Accurate, and the interface makes it easy and quick to center the note. And all the alternate tunings are there. This tuning app won't disappoint, especially if you have tried others.
Newbie loves!
by Cheichas on 2011/11/23 16:20
I am a newbie guitar player, having just had my third lesson. This application is idiot proof. You set it to automatically detect and it literally shows you what direction you need to adjust the string to achieve the correct tuning. It does so live - as the string is played - so you get to see where the frequency lies as you adjust. You adjust the string and the chart shows where your tuning is heading allowing you to complete in seconds. Music Instructor says "Pretty cool, pretty hardcore".
Literally the most reliable app I have
by Estephalves on 2013/09/05 15:19
If you need it, download it--you won't regret it. I usually have no problem finding an E, but of I haven't played in a while, this is a great tool to freshen up. I also think beginners should download this app to encourage their practice--even though the app does the ear work for you, a beginner will learn to hear these notes as they properly tune their instrument. Highly recommend!

Guitar Tuner!
Description
An easy-to-use accurate audio/visual tuner for your guitar. Provides a simple interface to visually check whether the pitch for each string is low or high, and lets you "see" the pitch change as you wind/unwind the string tuning machines. Tuning has never been easier. Shows exactly how many cents (1/100ths of a semitone) a note is out-of-tune. - Extremely accurate - within 1 cent (1/100th of a semitone) of each note with sub-second response time. - Developed in Austin, Texas, the "Live Music Capital of the World". - Use the standard tuning E-A-D-G-B-E or one of many alternate tunings: regular tunings such as Minor Third, special tunings such Drop D, open tunings such Open C, lower tunings, higher tunings. - Adjust pitch incrementally from 400 to 480 Hz or up/down a half/full step from A440. (The International Organization for Standardization specifies the frequency for the note A in the treble stave as 440 Hz. ISO 16:1975). - Tap to hear an accurate note if tuning by ear instead of using visual tuning. - Enable/disable Auto-string-detect (not recommended for noisy environments).
My Favorite
by ProbablyNoah on 2019/10/24 02:56
First of all, to all those complaining it hasn’t been updated - it doesn’t need to be! It works great, who cares if it fills the entire screen on my iPhone 11? There’s a lot out there, but this is always my go-to. Super simple and easy to use, it lets you know just how close or far off you are. Love the interface. Great work! I’ll be using this for years to come.

by Professor Oller on 2018/12/25 21:34
This is a much better way of tuning then the unit I bought and keep in my guitar case. It seems much more accurate and I like being able to listen to the tone I am tuning to.

Easy to Use, Very Accurate
by EHawks6505 on 2018/07/31 23:34
For a tuner on a phone, iPad, etc, it does its job very well. It’s especially handy being able to have the selected string play what it should sound like!
My favorite tuner!

Really great
by Brain Mentalblock on 2017/09/15 15:34
This is the nicest tuning app I've used. Easy to read and accurate. Tip: Lay your phone on top of the guitar above and to the left of the sound hole, resting against the lower end of the fretboard. You'll get a great signal.
Simply the best
by Poppernickel on 2017/08/22 14:23
I don't need tuners for my guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele. This app covers them all, and I don't have to remember where I put it after I last used it. OK, I can't tune my piano or Sousaphone with it, but every musician should have this app.
Killer app

Once I found this tuner app I quit looking further. Easy, more than standard tuning, and I enjoy watching the oscilloscope action. Thanks
Pretty Good!
by Hbarski on 2017/07/20 18:08
For my Amatuer ear, it is pretty accurate & I like using my izpjone to tune verse other implements.
My favorite tuner!
by Charlie Senn on 2017/06/29 01:53
I use this all the time to tune my guitar and it's quick and effective! Way better than one of those tuners you buy at like Guitar Center.
Spike
by Carrera Mike on 2017/06/11 22:03
I like the center spike of the indicator. You could use it to further fine tune to precise key. Not just seeing the green when its in tune. Also I could tell when strings are starting to wear out, that spike start to flatten.
great app
by Ztg4891 on 2017/06/01 23:19

My favorite tuning app bar none
by adaptiveagile on 2017/02/08 22:00
For the longest time I keep reminding myself to review this app. Anyway, highly recommended and the premium version is the way to go. I love pretty much everything about this app. I like the spectrum type diagram style for each string, and how the frequency shifts from pluck to termination of the vibrations. Love the massive selection of alternate tunings, the interface, etc. The perfect little app. For best results when not plugged in, I position the iphone so that the bottom is resting on the headstock to pick up the vibrations. I've played around with different placements and this gives me the best results. Holding the phone with your left hand securing the bottom part (with the mic) firmly against the guitar's wood while adjusting the tuners with my right hand gives me the best results. For my headless guitars, I hold the phone on the metal plate and that gives even better resonance. Since the sound of a string in a noisy environment can be hard to capture by all tuning apps, I've found that they work even better by vibrations, where I think the buzzing of the resounding wood against the phone matches the sonic frequency of the string through the microphone. That's my theory anyway. The fact that vibrations work better than remote sound capture would probably support my theory. FYI, if you tap the little (i) icon, you can choose auto detect string. I don't use it, but mention it because I think a lot of new users might be confused at first because the default setting requires that u first choose the string to be tuned. So u might sit there plucking a string and wondering why nothing is happening. Select the string and then pluck the note unless u toggle the auto-detect function. Oh, and heads up. If you're plugged in and press the string for a reference tone, TURN DOWN YOUR VOLUME so u don't blow out your eardrums and jump through the ceiling. Has caught me off guard a couple times :) developer should default sound down to low levels to protect user hearing when headphone is detected. 5 star app. Get it.

Very satisfying!!!!
by Chavage on 2016/04/14 01:16
This app is an amazing tuner. It is totally worth your money. It lets you tune to any tuning that you want very easily. If you are a beginner then it is very easy to use. I personally have been playing for five years and through all five this is the best and easiest tuner I've used.👌👌

I love this tuner and use it every day. It has replaced a number of physical tuners that Are now gathering dust. PLEASE add OPEN E tuning. I play a lot of slide guitar and I constantly want to quickly change accurately between open tunings or to tune my guitar up when I am playing in open E. Thanks

I've used quite a few app-based tuners and this one ranks #1 for ease of use, accuracy, variability in available tuning schemes, and it is great aesthetically.
Great Tuner

Does everything it should and nothing it shouldn't. Very accurate and the fact that it's free makes it perfect.
I LOVE THIS APP

My Favorite

First of all, to all those complaining it hasn’t been updated - it doesn’t need to be! It works great, who cares if it fills the entire screen on my iPhone 11? There’s a lot out there, but this is always my go-to. Super simple and easy to use, it lets you know just how close or far off you are. Love the interface. Great work! I’ll be using this for years to come.
Quick Simple Accurate

Simple, reliable and accurate. Pick up the guitar, tune it in a few seconds and ready to play. Especially good when I'm out and get to play someone else's guitar. I use this every day!
Excellent
by Professor Oller on 2018/12/25 21:34
This is a much better way of tuning then the unit I bought and keep in my guitar case. It seems much more accurate and I like being able to listen to the tone I am tuning to.
Simply the best
by Poppernickel on 2017/08/22 14:23
I don't need tuners for my guitar, mandolin, banjo and ukulele. This app covers them all, and I don't have to remember where I put it after I last used it. OK, I can't tune my piano or Sousaphone with it, but every musician should have this app.
Spike
by Carrera Mike on 2017/06/11 22:03
I like the center spike of the indicator. You could use it to further fine tune to precise key. Not just seeing the green when its in tune. Also I could tell when strings are starting to wear out, that spike start to flatten.
Easy to Use, Very Accurate
by EHawks6505 on 2018/07/31 23:34
For a tuner on a phone, iPad, etc, it does its job very well. It’s especially handy being able to have the selected string play what it should sound like!
Really great
by Brain Mentalblock on 2017/09/15 15:34
This is the nicest tuning app I've used. Easy to read and accurate. Tip: Lay your phone on top of the guitar above and to the left of the sound hole, resting against the lower end of the fretboard. You'll get a great signal.
Just as good if not better than nonmobile
by short-ay on 2017/03/31 22:20
I have used this mobile tuner for years and it has yet to fail me! Would totally recommend to anyone!
Works well
by B52bgz on 2018/05/29 14:06
Simple, reasonably accurate and works even with high background sounds including other instruments.
My favorite tuner!
by Charlie Senn on 2017/06/29 01:53
I use this all the time to tune my guitar and it's quick and effective! Way better than one of those tuners you buy at like Guitar Center.
Works
by KiwiBouknight on 2017/07/23 22:28
Once I found this tuner app I quit looking further. Easy, more than standard tuning, and I enjoy watching the oscilloscope action. Thanks
Works great
by Parshay on 2018/01/24 12:42
Simple and it works great, if you don't want to tap each note go to settings and turn on auto detect
Simple and accurate

Pretty Good!

For my Amatuer ear, it is pretty accurate & I like using my izpjone to tune verse other implements.
Great tuner
by Pablo g123 on 2017/02/02 00:55
This tuner is much better than $50 guitar tuner!
Simple and great.

No bugs. Lots of custom tunes.
Killer app
by Mauricioslc on 2017/08/22 01:00
This app works great!
Please update!!
by T Whitt on 2018/11/02 20:05
This app hasn’t been updated for iPhone X (over a year old!!!) and it looks terribly on my screen. Please update.
I love it

On as good as it gets
My favorite tuning app bar none
by adaptiveagile on 2017/02/08 22:00
For the longest time I keep reminding myself to review this app. Anyway, highly recommended and the premium version is the way to go. I love pretty much everything about this app. I like the spectrum type diagram style for each string, and how the frequency shifts from pluck to termination of the vibrations. Love the massive selection of alternate tunings, the interface, etc. The perfect little app. For best results when not plugged in, I position the iphone so that the bottom is resting on the headstock to pick up the vibrations. I've played around with different placements and this gives me the best results. Holding the phone with your left hand securing the bottom part (with the mic) firmly against the guitar's wood while adjusting the tuners with my right hand gives me the best results. For my headless guitars, I hold the phone on the metal plate and that gives even better resonance. Since the sound of a string in a noisy environment can be hard to capture by all tuning apps, I've found that they work even better by vibrations, where I think the buzzing of the resounding wood against the phone matches the sonic frequency of the string through the microphone. That's my theory anyway. The fact that vibrations work better than remote sound capture would probably support my theory. FYI, if you tap the little (i) icon, you can choose auto detect string. I don't use it, but mention it because I think a lot of new users might be confused at first because the default setting requires that u first choose the string to be tuned. So u might sit there plucking a string and wondering why nothing is happening. Select the string and then pluck the note unless u toggle the auto-detect function. Oh, and heads up. If you're plugged in and press the string for a reference tone, TURN DOWN YOUR VOLUME so u don't blow out your eardrums and jump through the ceiling. Has caught me off guard a couple times :) developer should default sound down to low levels to protect user hearing when headphone is detected. 5 star app. Get it.
My favorite tuner!

Freezing

Great app!!!
Guitar tuner
by Oceanseeker on 2012/01/25 02:46
I can never use the regular guitar tuner and I always had to wait on someone else to tune my guitar because my hands so small. This app fixed the problem now I can see how to tune while actually tuning the guitar myself. If u ever had a problem in the past trying to look at the tuner and hold the proper strings down at the same time 5 STARS Go To This App. It's small so I can put it where I can see it and actually tune a Fender Jazzmaster for the first time because my hands ate so small 1954 Fende Jazzmaster is happy and the one my husband bought me for this Christmas So a 56 year old jazzmaster and a brand new one and I are all very happy Best App You Can Buy............5 STARS
The best just got better
by JoeMitchell79 on 2011/07/19 19:40
I've been a guitar instructor for 8+ years, a musician for much longer and I've had never really cared for electronic tuners, I instead prefer tuning by ear with a piano. However, this app is the first tuning app I've seen that 1) Is NOT excessively frustrating, inaccurate, and incredibly slow to use and 2) Is actually very intuitive and kind of fun! Quite the opposite of all things in #1 and in my opinion, that's a SERIOUS accomplishment! UPDATE: With the latest update, this app has gone above and beyond. They added the lower tunings I asked for and made it universal. This is the only tuner on the app store worth owning. Bravo!
There Is No Finer Guitar Tuner
by what a world what a world on 2012/10/20 15:17
For over the past 40+ years that I have been playing guitars I have gone through the entire gamut of guitar tuners, everything from a tuning fork to the piano key, to the portable clip ons, and right through many rack and strobe units. But this app is definitely the best one I have come across so far. It is really, really easy to use, and the algorithm used is outstanding. Of course, my favorite feature is the graphics used to inform me that my guitar is in tune. If this app was in its own packaging, it's own small unit, then I would be buying multiple units, one for each of my several guitars.
Great App!!!
by mgardiner on 2012/11/18 17:17
I don't write many reviews, but felt compelled to do so for such a useful and well designed app such as this one. It works great. It's intuitive and easy to use without any instructions. I used it for my acoustic and had no trouble tuning my instrument. The feature I liked best was how I was able to change the tuning for my guitar to other than standard tuning (like open tuning) and even adjust the pitch setting for half step up or down. You can easily see when your guitar tuning is within range in the display. I love it!
Only prob is low E
by Dragonamant on 2011/12/15 07:58
Works as advertised even with a cheap acoustic. Took me a minute to figure out how to tell what to do when I was so far off I couldn't see my note on the visualization. The +\- cents helps a lot. Tried with auto detect and without; works much better when you select your string manually. Only issue is the low E doesn't register enough or fast enough for the visual to mark its frequency. Fix that for 5stars I noticed it kinda helped if I lifted the guitar body away from my body. Tried a FREE tuner app first, but had trouble matching the notes by ear The visualization on this works so much better to get it right.
One of the best music iOS apps
by Connor York - expert musician on 2012/01/05 00:42
Wow! One of the most important things when playing guitar is first and foremost that the guitar is in tune. This tuner is one of the most accurate I've used. If you have an iOS device and need a tuner this is the one to turn too. It is honestly better, and more accurate, than standalone tuners. Plus you can chose different tunings you want to tune too. I would highly recommend this tuner, even more than a standard standalone tuner that you would buy at a music retailer, to any musician in need of one.
Works great,finally playing again
by square sorbet on 2014/08/26 05:51
Works great and simple to use. I always used my tuner on my old digitech pedal. Lost the ac adapter and haven't played in a few years. Got this a few months ago and finally got my bass and electric out and tuned them a lot faster than before. It did the job great and was a lot cheaper than buying a tuner. Im back to fun but still need to find that ac adapter, not for tuning but for the effects. Don't need that for tuning anymore plus one of the switches was going anyways.

Best tuner app hands down
by XeroTheory on 2012/04/17 20:21
I tune with this over my chromatic tuner, Guitar Rig, or any other tuner I have access to. My only issue is that I tend to play on lower tunings (Drop C, sometimes lower) and the only way I can use this app for those lower tunings is to mix and match from the presets until I get all 6 strings in tune. I have to tune the low string on my 7-string by ear because this app only covers 6 string tunings. Hopefully in an update, custom tunings and 7+ strings will get some recognition. Otherwise, this app is phenomenal.
Great precision
by Culpa Joe on 2013/03/01 13:33
I got this app because it displays "cents," 100th of a tone. It's very precise and allows you to make very subtle adjustments that bring the overall guitar into tune (saw this technique on James Taylor's website). The app is easy to use and, like a said, VERY precise. I couldn't find a similar tuner for less than $100. I have to use the iPhone mic, because I don't have a guitar input device for my phone. That problem's on me, though. The app is guitar specific, and only picks up preset notes (though there are alternate tuning settings like Drop D and Open G, no DADGAD, though).
No complains
by RobArone on 2014/01/20 23:57
I have been using this app for months now, and I can't think of anything I would change. I have not tried any others, but this app is very simple and straight forward. It's on my phone and tablet and always with me. I love the different turnings. I can tune up standard all day long, but non standard takes time. And I wouldn't bother if I was on the road. But this app lets me quickly change and be ready to play . This is my favorite app.
Best tuning app out there
by MChild62 on 2014/01/15 21:20
I've tried several tuning apps and devices, including those that come with various effects and amps, or that are included in other programs like Jamup. This app is the one thing that does something better than Jamup. Why? Accurate, and the interface makes it easy and quick to center the note. And all the alternate tunings are there. This tuning app won't disappoint, especially if you have tried others.
Newbie loves!
by Cheichas on 2011/11/23 16:20
I am a newbie guitar player, having just had my third lesson. This application is idiot proof. You set it to automatically detect and it literally shows you what direction you need to adjust the string to achieve the correct tuning. It does so live - as the string is played - so you get to see where the frequency lies as you adjust. You adjust the string and the chart shows where your tuning is heading allowing you to complete in seconds. Music Instructor says "Pretty cool, pretty hardcore".
Literally the most reliable app I have
by Estephalves on 2013/09/05 15:19
If you need it, download it--you won't regret it. I usually have no problem finding an E, but of I haven't played in a while, this is a great tool to freshen up. I also think beginners should download this app to encourage their practice--even though the app does the ear work for you, a beginner will learn to hear these notes as they properly tune their instrument. Highly recommend!
