GuitarTuna: Guitar, Bass tuner
Description
The #1 tuner in the world! This is not just a guitar tuner: we’ve got +100 tunings for 15 instruments! It’s fast, accurate and easy to use. GuitarTuna has been downloaded over 80 million times, which makes it the most downloaded tuning app in the world. Tuna has it all: • A LOT of tunings: standard, drop D, drop A, half step down and loads more • Metronome with tap-for-tempo and multiple time signatures • Chromatic tuner for alternative tunings and for tuning any instrument • The clean, intuitive and customisable UI makes it easy for anyone to use • Tools: Ear training, chord guide, games, and exercises. How it works: Just pluck a string on your instrument - Tuna detects the sound using your device’s microphone. You’ll get instant visual feedback while tuning. No cables needed. With our award-winning audio recognition technology, we guarantee you an insanely accurate tuning result. We use noise cancellation technology to eliminate background noises while you tune. The instruments we currently support: • Guitar • Guitar 7-String • Guitar 12-String • Ukulele • Cavaquinho • Bass • Bass 5-string • Violin • Viola • Cello • Fiddle • Mandolin • Balalaika • Banjo • Banjo 5-String • Chromatic tuner for all instruments We’ve put a lot of love and effort into making GuitarTuna the tuner it is today. User feedback is valuable to us, and you can be sure we’re listening. We recently added chromatic tuner to the app because of the sheer amount of requests for it. With the chromatic tuner, users can create their own tunings or tune basically any instrument (you can even identify your landline’s beeping frequency).

You can tuna bass, but you can’t bass a tuna. Now download the app and see how it is. Send us your feedback of the joke and the app to support@guitartuna.com! https://yousician.com/privacy-notice https://yousician.com/terms-of-service

This app isn’t for acoustic guitars this BROKE one of my strings
Not worth monthly charge.
by Daved22 on 2019/12/13 14:34
What’s worse than an over expensive app? This one that asks you to subscribe and pay for it monthly forever! This app isn’t worth the ongoing cost.
Great App!!!!!

No flaws!!! If you are a guitarist this is the app for you!!!

Best guitar tuner app ever my battery tuner died not to long ago and my dad told me about this app and don’t know ho I would live without it I use my guitar more than ever now.
AWESOME APP!!!
by Virg1154 on 2019/12/09 15:09
I really LOVE this app. I have used it to tune my guitars and find it super easy.
Best tuner ever
by nowyadie531 on 2019/12/08 23:34
My guitar had a pre-amp, so I tried that for a while... And that wasn’t working, so I switched to GuitarTuna. 5 stars, best tuner ever.

It’s so great

Best tuner app! Wish alternate tunings were free
by Boyd1043 on 2019/12/08 05:45
Best tuner app! Wish alternate tunings were free! Especially open tubings and simple drop d. I know u can do a simple 12th fret harmonic on low E to get ur drop D but for the beginner they should at least offer that free
Ads on a paid version is unacceptable
by AdsForLifeIguess on 2019/12/08 00:53
Pretty much the title. Look, I understand popping ads in your face if you’re using a free version of an app. Developers have to make money somehow. However, I paid full price for this app and I get Yousician ads thrown in my face mid tuning. Just no, I’ve seen this trend becoming more the norm on other applications and if consumers don’t do something about it now, it’ll get out of control. I paid for the program. Let me use it in peace please.
Easy free tuner
by guitarloverzz on 2019/12/07 23:57
This app is the best tuner for free! All other apps you have to pay or don’t work well. I don’t have to worry anymore about buying tuners. best app ever!!
So good
by PERSON 908 on 2019/12/07 23:53
I’ve been playing guitar for my school for almost a year and this is a great app to tune my guitar for school even my school recommended this app!
Greedy and sad...but mostly greedy
by Wvlkv on 2019/12/07 22:35
This app used to be a one time buy all for one price of $10, which is reasonable. Now they want you to pay monthly which is greedy and ridiculous. I used to be so proud of this app and told hundreds of musicians about it. Not anymore... :(
Sooooooo good even has other helpful stuff other than just a tuner
by Rockybear11 on 2019/12/07 21:29
Definitely get it is a super good app
Best one out there
by Jstan123 on 2019/12/07 12:59
Thank you!!!!
Best guitar app out there (with the membership)
by ImJustJoshing on 2019/12/06 00:16
I’ve had this app for two years and it has helped me out A LOT. I wish you didn’t have to pay for a membership tho...
Please fix!!!!!
by harleyquinn4lolz on 2019/12/05 23:09
I love your app but recently I redownloaded it and now it crashes as soon as I open it!!!!! I love using your tuner but please fix it!!
So easy!🎼
by BrubakerGal on 2019/12/05 18:40
I downloaded this app because I began playing Ukulele. I thought tuning was going to be super confusing, but this app makes it so easy! It’s so simple which gives me more time to practice! Literally takes almost 2 minutes depending on the last time you have tuned your instrument. Get this app! You will NOT regret it!🤩
One of my most-used apps
by totsandtrinkets on 2019/12/05 09:50
I absolutely LOVE this app. It is the ONLY tuner I use for my guitars (6 and 12 string acoustics) and my Uke. It is more accurate than electronic or built-in tuners. I usually put my phone on my knee while tuning so that it sits near the body of my instrument. I love how in manual mode, you can select each string individually and hear an example of what that string, properly tuned, sounds like. Sometimes the app chimes saying that my string is tuned correctly, even tho it sounds a bit off to me. So I recommend fine-tuning by ear after you get your instrument pretty close to being tuned with the app. I love the chord library, where you can not only see correct finger placement on an image of a fretboard, but there is also a color-coded hand on each chord, which shows you exactly which finger should be placed on each string. You can also hear examples of each and every chord. The only thing I don’t get is why the App Store listing claims there is a subscription service and in.qpp purchases. I have NEVER run into anything of the sort in my years of using this app. I don’t even see a place anywhere in the app that has in-app purchases. Unless there used to be a one time purchase option that I don’t remember purchasing? Dunno. As I said, I’ve had this app for years. Last but not least- your bass and tune joke was fantastic and made me giggle out loud. Here’s another one for ya- What do you get when you throw a piano down a mine shaft? A Flat Minor Oh and one final suggestion- for your Iraqi users, make sure you add BAGDAD to your standard tuning library. 😜
Excellent!!

The Dog Days Are Over
by Stephwilly on 2019/12/03 21:31
Best app ever! I have compared it to multiple other guitar tuners that require batteries and always need replaced and I can assure you this tuner is on point! The days of buying a tuner and hoping the battery isn’t dying during tuning are long gone.
Great
by hfhcusnenfimeyebfuf on 2019/12/03 19:14

Rental app
by Mandrio Ardetti on 2019/12/03 16:56
The app seems great and I would like to buy, but would never commit to a $4.99/month to tune a Ukulele.
Very good

Really good app surprisingly accurate and very useful especially if you forgot a tuner
Great Guitar Tuner 👍🏻👍🏻
by Sam 230 on 2019/12/03 02:45
I love this app and think it’s a really great guitar tuner, I almost always have my phone with me, so whether I’m about to practice, or just whenever I pick up my guitar, I like to keep it in tune, that’s why I like this app, it’s quick, easy, guitar tuning...
Good app
by It.me.alisa on 2019/12/03 02:24
This app is actually really great and accurate,I’m new to guitar and this app has been rlly helpful and is clear with why ur instrument isn’t in tune, it’ll tell if it’s too high or too low

Use it for years, never had an issue, ads don’t ruin the experience of using the app like other guitar apps that I use. Thanks for doing a good job Tuna!!
Developer will nickel and dime you
by ianthompson on 2019/12/02 00:32
I paid for the full version of the app, with all the tubings a while ago. Yes it was a lot, but I use the app all the time and it works great. But they want me to pay $3.99 a month for just a regular chromatic tuner? That’s a huge scam. The developers should be ashamed of themselves.

I downloaded this app because on of my ukulele students ukulele was constantly out of tune. I love it. I now have guitar students too and this app make tuning their instruments a breeze.
Premium
by GeraldEdlareg on 2019/12/01 16:56
I have used this app for many years to tune my banjo and I have even recommended it to my students to tune their banjos; seeing as I teach a banjo class. I loved the app and everything about it until recently when the app updated. I NOW HAVE TO PAY TO TUNE A BANJO! This is an outrage. I never get angry, but when I learned of this, I fumed for days. I am very unsatisfied with this app now and will no longer recommend it. I will not pay to do something as simple as tune a folk instrument on a mobile app. I am now planning to invest in a clip-on tuner that is much more accurate, and it will pay for itself (unlike this app).
Nice
by Bet billy Scott on 2019/11/29 22:07
Decently decent
Bad for bass tuning
by Creepy Dragon15 on 2019/11/28 16:34
Edit:So now it’s started tuning my e string but there isn’t any of the teaching parts for bass like there is for guitar, up 2 more stars but still wanting a bit more I got this after SamuraiGuitarist mentioned it in a video and I decided to tune my bass. What a mistake, it can’t even understand the E string, really disappointing. Will update later I remember
Extras abound
by pepto_gecko on 2019/11/28 16:11
I bought this in desperate need of a simple tuner. This app is so much more! Best tuning app on the market!!
most accurate
by mird mird on 2019/11/28 01:27
this app uses the measurement of cents. human ear hears a difference of 15 cents, below that very hard to tell the difference between pitches. if you tune your strings no more than 3 to 5 cents, your music will be beautiful and professional sounding
Best guitar app ever!!!
by Ava tingzzz on 2019/11/27 20:06
I love this app so much, it is so accurate! Another plus is, it worked on other instruments which is great for me, totally recommend to any instrument player. Super happy with this app! :)
Thank you so much I love the app

This was my favorite tuner
by Zen master Rob on 2019/11/25 04:15
I bought the pro version months ago, just updated the app, and now it tells me that I have to buy the pro version to use the chromatic tuner. EXCUSE ME?! I already paid you people. Who do I have to get in contact with to fix this?!?

This is the best tuner app, it picks up notes perfectly but the only thing I don’t like is they make you pay for some extra if you want open tuning or custom ones but other then that I didn’t find one as good

Does the job
by srmanzo on 2019/11/16 20:51
I don’t always care for a headstock mounted tuner and before I get the hate, I know that’s the preferred method to get a full tonal tune but on the move this works great. I’d love to have some half step down tuning options as some things just need a half step down. Other than that, it’s my go to when I don’t have a tuner clamped to the headstock
Perfect
by Hawkeyeuncas on 2019/11/16 16:58
A perfect 5 stars!
Metronome
by La Chr on 2019/11/16 00:39
Although I do play guitar and use this app to tune, I also am studying piano and find that the metronome is really helpful. I like the option of the different time signatures, but where is 3/8? That is the time signature I need tonight. Thanks so much for this app.
Recommend!!!
by ayeissajess101 on 2019/11/15 05:03
This app helped a lot, I have been looking for apps all day and this one was a lifesaver. I will continue to use it and I recommend this app for beginners and for people who are looking for a tune, and it’s free. You don’t need to buy a 10 dollar one when you have this one. Thank you for creating this. Amazing!

I have had this app for a long time. Back in the day there was an option to buy all of the tunings in one package so I did, but now the app has become a subscription service. What happened to my other tunings? When I tried to restore my purchase nothing changed. Did they take my money and run off with it????
Excellent guitar tuner
by SFCCHAPMAN on 2019/11/14 05:32
I know nearly nothing about playing a guitar, so tuning is a challenge for me, with this app, my guitar is always in tune for when I’m ready to practice. I would highly recommend this app, especially for newbies.

Secret weapon
by Bggggeeeedd on 2018/04/15 01:20
I downloaded this app thinking it was just a standard guitar tuner. I used it for about 6 months just as a tuner. I needed to tune a 12 string acoustic for my dad and didn't have a 12 string tuner. I did a little exploring in this app and low and behold I found it actually has a setting just for 12 strings! It cut the time of tuning from ear to doing it off the app from 10 minutes + by ear to barely any time with using the app. So as I realized I hadn't takin advantage of the app as much as I should I started exploring even more. It's a gold mine of knowledge. Not only is it a tuner (best app tuner I've used personally) but it also has a metronome , games , chords, a plethora of instruments to choose from and it's SUPER easy to navigate. I got my dad an iPhone (first iPhone he's 65) and he always complained about how it was hard to use. I showed him the GuitarTuna app and he hasn't ever had any confusion with how to use it. I think that says a lot of how instinctive the user interface is if my dad can do it :P all in all I can't recommend this app enough. I literally tell all my guitar player friends to try it and not one has said anything negative about it. I love it! I can't imagine how the developers can make it better than it already is but something tells me they will! Thanks for making an awesome app. From one musician to another, THANKS!!! Cheers! -Brad.
I really like this app!!
by shorty0979 on 2017/10/24 17:08
I've never personally tuned a guitar,- I've always had to have someone tune it for me when I briefly owned several guitars many years ago. At the time, I had bought them for my (now) ex husband so he was the one who always tuned them. But unfortunately, when I eventually left him- He got rid of them all instead of giving them to me since I paid for all of them. So needless to say, I've never really had the chance to learn how to play much at all. Recently, I was given another guitar from my sister, & knew I needed to learn how to tune it so I downloaded this app. I find it extremely easy to use & very helpful. Now I can tune my guitar (& maybe??) FINALLY learn how to play like I've always wanted too!! I LOVE Music & have to listen to it daily, it's my "Escape" from the world, my life, & all the problems or stresses that I might face daily. I've always wanted to learn how to play for as long as I can remember, so that I could eventually learn to play (at least some??) of the songs I love to listen to everyday or maybe even some that I grew up listening to as a kid. I'm thankful for this app so I can begin my journey towards reaching my goal/dream of learning how to play guitar & music. Thank you for making this app so very easy!! I Love It!!
Nice app definitely recommended
by Xx_DonutEater_xX on 2018/01/19 20:29
Hello everyone reading this. This is an app that made my life so much easier. I started playing guitar 4 months ago and I didn’t know anything about the guitar. So I needed someone to tune my guitar for me or at least help me (My grandpa knows how to play and tune guitar. He was pretty young when he started playing on it. But I can’t always ask him to help me). So this app was just perfect for me. It’s free. It shows you all the chords. It’s precise while tuning. And it has little mini-games as well (although if you want more games you need to pay. But it’s pretty reasonable price). So the bottom line than. If you want the basics of the basics on guitar this is the app that will provide you with anything. If you want to learn more you need to pay (But I think their Yousician app is much better if you wanna “master” the guitar). And the best thing is that the app is beautiful, it has a good tuner and all the chords you will probably ever need. (This was kinda too big of a bottom line 🤣) Thank you for reading!
Versatile and very usable

The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.
I love this app!
by Alyssa P. J. on 2018/06/07 06:38
This app has been amazing! Before I get into detail, this app has helped me learn so much, and I’m so glad I downloaded it. It has been the easiest way for me to learn chords. I first downloaded this app when I began playing guitar, to help keep it in tune. As I became more familiar with the app and my guitar, I started using the “learn to play chords” feature. When I was ready to learn new chords I purchased the full version. One of the best purchases I could’ve made. All of the features expand for the guitar. But, not all of the features expand for the ukulele. This is pretty disappointing. This app has been a foundation for me learning to play and I really wish they had the “learn to play chords” feature for the uke. Hopefully the developers are working on this! Honestly if you’re newer (or even experienced) to playing and are looking for an app to help you get your instrument in tune and learn new chords I’d recommend this app.
Great for any level guitarist
by Sputnik Stan on 2018/02/17 01:28
I have played guitar for over 20 years. I love this app. It is a relatively accurate tuner that is always as close as your phone. I play guitar and bass, depending on what band I am playing with and my mood. I enjoy this app because of the versatility of the tunings. Sometimes I play in standard, sometimes half a step down, sometimes in drop C, and open tunings. All of these and more are a simple menu away. I use my Korg strobe tuner with my rig and a needle tuner for setups, but I honestly use Guitar Tuna more often than any other tuner. Plus there are lots and lots of other features for actually learning to play the guitar and work on your skills that I haven’t even touched. Even the free version is great for standard tuning. Drop the money and get the app. You will see that you get more than you pay for!
Solid Tuner
by thebanjitarninja on 2018/10/08 03:41
Lemme start with the one flaw: WAY too many ads for Yousician. I've heard great things about Yousician, don't get me wrong, but it just seems a little silly to have a whole section in the toolbar devoted to a different app. Now that my complaint is outta the way, I have to thank the devs. Like, seriously. Thank you guys. I am by no means an avid musician (I just picked up banjitar a month ago, and the only other musical knowledge I have is choral), and this lil app right here has helped so much. The tuner itself, the initial reason I got GuitarTuna, is phenomenally precise, even in my old iPhone 5c. I'd swear by it. There's also the super extensive chord library, which I will never have the expertise to fully delve into. GuitarTuna has helped this awkward, musically naïve teenage dude begin his journey down the road of banjitar enlightenment. This is one app that will always have a place very close to my heart: in my phone.
The King of the Field!!

From all of the tunner apps on the market I’m only reviewing the ones that are free. Being a real musician, and currently having zero to no money, when I type into google ‘tuner apps for free’ I’m assuming the results are going to be representative of free tuner apps.....not apps that are free until you want to tune with them.... Apparently that’s what most app development people assuming is going to work. What they don’t understand is that when I go through all of the effort of finding your app, downloading your app, installing your app, opening your app, and learning how to use your app....only to be greeted with “you must purchase this app in order to get it to work…They not only have lost a customer… They’ve made an enemy for life… I actually have a special spot in my password black book it’s labeled poison… In on this page or only the names of the developers who have wasted my time by misrepresenting their free app… This app, is a breathe of fresh air. You can actually use this app to tune your guitar for free… If you pay additional amount it’ll do a lot more cool stuff for you, but if you don’t have the money to pay for the upgrades, it still functions fantastically as a tuner … Four stars… A+ plus… Way to go guys you’re the best
Best for learning guitar
by Lazy Crative on 2017/09/29 21:12
Have you ever taken a class where the instructor not only allowed smart phones but insisted you download a specific app? Last year at my college I took a guitar class for non music major with no previous experience in guitar. It is called guitar class. So there were other students in it. It was 1 credit hour & I got an A. If you pass that with at least a C you can only take it once. I'm currently in what os called guitar elective. That is a one on one lesson in his office. Elective guitar can be taken as many times as the student wants. The pendulum is crucial to learning & the tuning is crucial to just using a guitar. This music teacher could teach a rhesus monkey to play the ukulele. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the guitar whether they are a beginner or a pro stadium musician.
More like a blessing than an app
by TheTenthDoctorIsSexy on 2018/02/11 03:16
My friend introduced me to this app and since then, this app has been a blessing in my life. With it, I am able to tune my ukulele, violin, guitar, and my best friend's cello. It is so easy to use and is very precise. Even with the free version (which is what I have) there is so much you can do. Not only can you tune your instrument with this app, but you can also use the tools in the app such as the metronome or the chords tool where it shows you the fingering for different chords on the ukulele and guitar. It also has an option in the chords tool where you can listen to the chord to make sure you are playing it correctly. Overall: I rate this a 6/5. This is probably the most useful app I have downloaded on my phone and it is so easy to use. Love love love it!!!
Great app, extremely useful.
by MLGsniperclanminecrafter on 2017/12/31 19:56
When I started playing Ukulele, I could never keep it in tune, it was a pain, and I had no idea where to start, so when I started learning guitar, I was even more overwhelmed. When I was playing one night with my horrendous sounding guitar, a friend told me about this app. I downloaded it, and almost instantly, my guitar and ukulele were sounding great. A year later, this app is still my go-to tuner, and although I do know how to tune without an app or tuner, this app truly helps me when I’m not quite sure. I recommend this to any guitarist, whether you’re a beginner, an amateur, or a pro. Even if you have a clip on tuner, this app is great for when you leave it at home, or can’t find it. 10/10 would download again.
Great, but with a couple annoying quirks
by katieyouoldfool on 2019/07/31 08:05
Before anything else, let me say this app is still 100% worth getting and I use it pretty much every day. It’s not just a tuner, it’s everything you need when practicing on your own. BUT there are a couple minor problems that got pretty annoying the more I used the app. The chord library interface is really bad. I love that they have so many chords and alternate fingerings, but really I wish there was just a button for each chord, instead of having to slowly scroll a dial through every note and variation to find the one I need. Also, I think the tuning calibration might be off. In settings, it says it’s automatically calibrated to to 440hz. But, whenever I play something already tuned properly to 440, like a digital keyboard, it reads as a 2-3 semitones too high. I’ve tried this with multiple instruments and used the app on several different devices and it happens every time. You can easily get around this by just changing the calibration to 443hz in settings, but it’s something to keep in mind, especially if you play in a group with other people. Again, I still recommend this app, flaws and all. There are just a couple things I’d love to see improved in future updates.
Works very well
by SevinStorey on 2018/04/09 03:11
As a young boy (in my early 20’s) I picked up my first hand me down flat top and bought a chord chart poster from Walmart and self taught myself how to strum chords enough to eventually start playing parties and small bars. I never did learn how to tune however but I can definitely tell when she’s out. I would always have to ask a friend or count on a small tuner that was easy to misplace or lose but now I can do it on my phone which I always have in my pocket and its extremely accurate as I’ve checked it on tuners and with class act guitar players including myself. There’s no bothersome pop ups (thank God) and it never asks me to buy anything,(again thank God) or I would drop it from my phone. Great deal for anybody out there.
great for learning the basics but...
by smhgamergal on 2019/06/29 14:00
It only gets 3 stars because they need to add a feature where you can play the chord practice games without a timer, Because it gets really annoying to have to keep restarting the game if you are a novice trying to learn the chords and can only get a couple before you have to stop and pickup your phone to restart the lesson. I was so stoked to see there was a feature that would teach you the chords and pick up if you were playing them correctly through the microphone and I paid for the full app only to find out how ridiculously obnoxious it is to have to restart every 45 seconds. seriously you need to add a feature where you can just play the games with no timer or with a custom timer. it's messed up the way it is now where you can only play each game for 45 seconds at a time.
So good i wrote a review.
by Sbpoodoo312 on 2018/02/11 07:26
Making the switch to trying life as an all digital, all mobile, iPhone based guitar(enthus)i(a)st ... giving up tubes and pedals for simplicity’s sake. I am trying out many dozens of guitar apps as a result — including tuners — and this one definitely stands out. I wish alternate tunings came free, but its worth the (minimal) price if you need them. Many of the apps i have used have tuners built in to them but — even when i am actively using just such an app — i still find myself switching to this one, and honestly i couldnt tell exactly quite why. Maybe its the fengshui of the layout but this app just has that all around quality feeling that makes it rise above the rest. Yeah, its just a tuner, but it nails the execution.
sick!
by yum~yum🗿 on 2019/05/30 23:17
i got this app when i FIRST started playing guitar and it did its job well, taught me all my major chords and tuned my guitar pretty well, but as i progressed (learned everything the app had to offer) i realized i needed everything else the app had to offer so i purchased the pro version and its 10x more useful. Basically what im trying to say is this app is great for beginners (beginner myself) but you definitely need the pro version if you’re really gonna take guitar seriously and use it on a day to day basis to teach yourself guitar and progress, unless you’re going for in person lessons with a teacher of course. If you're not going for in person lessons don't worry this app will take care of you.
Loved it. No complaints.
by kaejisan on 2018/09/10 01:00
I love this app. I’ll be honest, I’m not musically inclined. I have no sense of rhythm, I can’t come close to reading sheet music, and I was just about done dreaming of being a musician (without any success). I wanted to let myself down easy. However, I found this app, and considering the good reviews, I figured I’d give it a shot. I finally managed to tune the guitar I hadn’t touched since fourth grade when I got it, and even my sister’s crappy Five-Below ukulele. This app works wonders. I even learned a few chords. Crazy. Unfortunately, I cannot access the shop to unlock any new chords. That has nothing to do with the app, though. That’s my problem, haha. However, this app inspired me to learn a new skill. While I’m going to have to go online for new chords, I need to say that this app set me up for success — so far. Again, I’m no professional. I’m a high school freshman whose friend said you can get girls with guitar. I’m a 5’1 ginger, so I need all the help I can get. Maybe I can be the new Ed Sheeran? Probably not, but at least now someone can find some appeal in my personality :) Thank you, GuitarTuna! -Kadison
More than just a tuner
by rainbow chords on 2019/07/31 22:00
I downloaded this app cause I didn’t have a guitar tuner and I didn’t want to buy one if I didn’t have to. So I downloaded this app thinking it was just a tuner, and only using it as a tuner for a few weeks. But one day I was trying to learn a song on guitar and I didn’t know one of the chords, so I was looking through apps but all of the good ones had you do the subscription and pay and whatnot, then I tried looking it up but it didn’t help, so I gave up basically. Then I was experimenting around with this app, seeing what else it had, and then I found it! Under games I found a learn chords game and the learn to play chords game and I found the chord I was looking for!
Good accuracy
by Criticbuster on 2018/07/06 07:49
I don’t usually write reviews about apps, since I find it very helpful to read about others experiences with apps, maybe mine can help people as well. I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, so I was just looking for an app that could tune the guitar accurately. I love the fact that the app has so many separate parts that you can add to it. I don’t need all the other stuff, other players may enjoy the chord library, metronome, and the practice sections it has. Only thing I would like to see is the standard guitar interface have the ability to tune chromatically instead of having no guitar image at all. But great app!
Overall great, but missing a few things
by Cece8289 on 2018/11/20 17:21
Let me start by saying this is a REALLY good app. It’s very accurate, it saves me tons of time with tuning, and it has ALMOST every tuning under the sun to choose from. That being said, for more advanced players who are using less popular tunings like drop G, drop G#, drop F, etc., you’re going to have a really tough time because those aren’t an option. There IS an option to custom tune a 6 string which is great, but does also have some limitations. But I really do wish there was an option to do custom tuning for a 7 string because they only offer standard and drop A for 7 strings (yeah, they’re the most commonly used, but not the only ways to tune a 7 string). But otherwise, really well made app!
Great App, having trouble restoring old purchases
by DanFingerMan on 2019/08/08 00:56
Been using app for about a year or so. My go-to tuner for guitar tunings. However, I have a slight problem with restoring my guitar tuning options. I recently had to change phones because old phone was badly damaged and I have most guitar tunings unlocked on that version of the app (previous phone). I see now that I have to subscribe in order to unlock the tunings rather than simply being able to buy the ones you need? Is that the reason I cannot access the previous library of tunes I purchased a while back? Please help. I like this app a lot as it provides super accurate tuning.
Best tuner ever!
by X-Clasher on 2018/08/01 23:11
That might be a slightly bias statement but it's from someone who has had GuitarTuna for close to I wanna say 3 maybe 4 years. My point is that in all this time as long as I had my phone with me, any guitar was gonna be in tune. And I haven't dabbled much outside of standard tuning but with the ease of user interaction I'm sure all of them are worth it. I recommend this app to every guitar player I know and now I'm finally taking a moment to recommend this app to all of you whom I don't know. Look no further, this is the app you need to keep your strings singing in harmony 👍🏼 And finally, just a big Thank You to GuitarTuna for existing! MVA! (Most Valuable App) lol
One of the best apps ever!
by juniper hoffman on 2019/06/09 10:20
This is one of the best apps I’ve ever used. I really like how it has both the tuning part of the app AND also the part where it tells/teaches you how to play different chords on the guitar. I’ve literally tried almost every single app out there and I have yet to find any apps that are like this one. PLUS it ALSO kinda lets you do all different kinds of stuff on this app as well! 😲 Thank you so much for creating this app! It has REALLY been useful for me for when I am tuning up my guitar AND trying to learn how to play different chords on the guitar as well! 🎸 😊 😃 Once again... thank you GuitarTuna for creating this app! ☺️
This is Absolutely GREAT!! Totally recommend!!
by Reynolds137 on 2019/01/25 02:22
So, I just started playing the ukalele and this app has really helped me tune my ukalele without being OVERLY confused. I love this app so much because It also helps me learn my cords. This app is very useful and helpful ! Totally recommend this app for any type of guitar/ ukalele, etc. players and even beginners like me! This app also tells me some awesome songs that I can play and rock! There is also learn cord games which is VERY fun and little do you know is helping you learn your instruments cords! LOVE THIS APP!! Like I said TOTALLY RECOMMEND for anyone trying to play the guitar, ukalele, etc. Thanks! And that is a wrap on why I gave this app a 5 star rating !!!
Great tuner
by Original PBR Man on 2018/06/13 20:34
This tuner is quick and easy to use. It has both visual and audible cues to let you know when your string is perfectly in tune. With the free version, you can select from different tunings: guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho. It includes a metronome with many different counts (4/4, 5/4, 7/4, etc), and a chord library. There are also some games, but I haven’t played any of them. You will need to upgrade (pay $) to get alternative/ custom tunings. With the upgrade you get tunings for guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho, as well as 7 and 12 string guitar, 5 string bass, violin family and folk instruments. I only have the free version so I can’t review the upgrade.
Easiest best guitar tuner
by vansonn on 2018/06/02 15:34
I was moving and was going to get rid of my guitar since I never learned to play it and decided to keep it and learn. I had an old electric tuner that needed new batteries so I downloaded this app. People had messed with my guitar over the years while it just sat in a corner and so it was way out of tune. With this app I was able to get it back in tune in less than a minute (first time using the app). So, needless to say, this app is extremely easy to use and very accurate as well. Big thx to whoever made it. I have been playing for about three weeks now and am progressing quickly thx to this guitar tuner.
Efficient
by Rosedust24 on 2017/03/13 19:47
It's a music tuning app, so there will be pros and cons. The fact that we do not have to go out and purchase a decent tuner should make us all happy. Like anything else, it can mess up. These are minor, like when the microphone struggles with picking up the sound waves, it will tweak out sometimes. Oh and the pop up that asks users to rate the app.. so I finally did it. Though, I'm sure it will keep popping up every now and then. Other than that, I use it just about every day. I've tried some other tuning apps, but i prefer the dark theme of GuitarTuna! And it's set up nicely, easy to see and auto tune.
Can’t just view frequency any more
by Agentmith on 2019/03/05 18:32
I’ve been using this to tune various non-standard instruments based on frequency and never had a problem until today. It keeps bringing me to the store page for some reason and it’s incredibly frustrating. Before, all I needed to do was open the app and it wouldn’t be associated with an instrument, it just measured the frequency and told me if the pitch value was correct. This is literally all I want, and I can’t find this anymore. I’ve restored purchases and all that. If this used to be something that was removed and is now a paid in-app purchase or a subscription, I’ll just ditch this and use something else, which I hope isn’t the case as I’ve used this app for years. Its a dirty practice to remove features that were included for however long then ask for more money to get them back.
Teacher approved
by Lyrikailee on 2018/11/16 21:59
As I teach music lessons, I’m always looking for new tools to make my and my students’ job easier. This app certainly fits the bill. I love that it automatically switches strings so you can use the app hands-free. I love that you can see which tuning peg goes with the string you’re tuning (as long as it’s close enough to the note it’s supposed to be). If it’s way off, you can tap the peg and it will play the corresponding pitch for that string so you know to tune up or down. Very visual and intuitive. It has a tap tempo metronome too! That is a HUGE plus as I teach students how to play with a metronome, because they can tap the tempo they are currently comfortably playing at and it takes out the guesswork. I could go on, as I just recently discovered the chords section (very helpful when we are switching to ukulele and I need to remind myself the difference). Oh and did I mention they have more than just standard tuning? Yep, they have a visual ukulele tuner too! Fantastic.
New update lags behind
by Ultistat on 2017/01/28 10:03
I've used this app for several months now, and it's been great so far. Great as a chord reference guide, great for its primary tuning capabilities. No complaints prior to the most recent update. However, as of this update made available several days ago, I have noticed that the swiping mechanism within the app seems delayed. It doesn't feel as responsive as it was before, and there is a lag once you swipe until the panel stops moving. This is a nuisance, requiring multiple attempts to do something that once required one smooth swipe across the screen. Moreover, the chord diagrams seem significantly smaller (although with higher resolutions) than before, making them less impactful than before. It would be great if these issues could be resolved, as I love using this app and will continue to use this app in spite of the minor inconveniences sourced from this update. Also, it would be cool if guitar scales were also available within the app, I would find it super helpful in my quest towards guitar proficiency. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see these changes made soon!
Kids love this app
by Don'tWantToType on 2017/05/17 18:59
Update: sometimes it just goes blank, no reference as to how off you are on tuning a particular string. It just couldn't hear the "G" on one of the guitars. Downloaded another app and tuned that one last string in 5 seconds. Intuitive app, was able to tune the guitar in 5 min on our first time trying it out. So far didn't see any annoying ads or payment pushing. Just used it with a 7 yr old who enjoyed tuning his guitar! Normally guitar practice is a chore, but this app added some excitement to the mix. To use, tap on what string you are to tune, then start tapping the string with right hand while the left is tightening/loosening. Easy to see if you are getting closer. Once the string is tuned a pleasant sound rings (that's a smile right there). To improve, I would recommend a sound or a voice notification when you need to go higher or lower. Or a bright beaming light, or arrow that points where you need to go. The text notifications are helpful, but not as attractive as the rest of the app. Keep up the great work!
Not going good so far
by @simply._.carley on 2019/09/15 20:12
Okay so I’m 12 going on 13 and I have used this app for almost 5 months now, because my Teacher recommended me to get it, She said that it would be easy to use for me so that I could tune my guitar. And it has up until now, today I was going to practice my guitar and figured it was probably out of tune, so I got on the app and started to tune it. When I got to my low E, it kept saying it was in tune and I knew it wasn’t, I even deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still didn’t work, so until y’all get it fixed I’m going to use another app. NOT HAPPY😬😤😤
Best tuning app so far
by DKKeyes on 2017/07/15 17:24
This is my go-to tuner any time. It's not only the most easy to use and accurate tuner, it also has a lot of awesome features I love. I teach guitar and I tell all my students to download this app because of it's other awesome features - The chord library is very helpful for anyone who needs a quick reference guide and the color scheme makes it user friendly for people of all ages. The games are a fun way for people to learn and self-teach themselves technique while making it fun. The included metronome is a great perk and it's easy to use and adjust. Great job creating this app!
Amazing App
by Ebdnekek on 2019/06/19 02:46
I’ve been playing guitar for almost half a year and I can’t explain how helpful this app is. Its multitude of settings, tools, games, and songs makes this app great. The metronome has come in handy many times with slowing down a song and increasing the bpm every time I feel comfortable with it. I would 100% recommend this app to people looking to start using guitar because of its accessibility and usefulness for free, and I would recommend it for more advanced players if you’re willing to pay a dollar or two for better settings. Amazing App.
Good App
by CatFun182 on 2017/03/18 00:58
I highly recommend it. I got a guitar 5 days ago, and I used this apps games. It's $7 for all the levels in the game but it's worth it. In my opinion, he games are the easiest way to learn the chords, and each level has different chords in it. The games also tell you if you're doing the chord right which is nice to have. I prefer this app over the fingering chart book that my dad gave me! It's a good app that makes guitars easier to learn. Another thing to note is that you can also learn the bass, the ukulele, and both acoustic and electric guitars using this app.
Great for beginners
by runningman2020 on 2019/05/29 13:21
I just started learning how to play guitar and this app helps so much! Don’t have the time to find and use a tutor in person so I’ve been YouTubing songs and practicing when I can. Not only does it save you the money from buying a tuner, if you come across a chord you aren’t comfortable with or don’t know or maybe just want to see the other ways to play it, there’s a section just for chords. I enjoy this app and will be using it far into the future. Thank you to all the people who spent their time making this amazing tool!
AMAZING FAST AND ACCURATE
by Katniss57 on 2019/01/16 17:59
I used to not want to play my guitar because tuning it was such a pain, then I got this app and now it’s SO fast! Ill be with people and I’ll tune my guitar with this app then they go “woah that was fast” 10/10 recommend. I’m not an advanced guitar player though so idk if they have this or if I just couldn’t find it but I’ve seen people talk about tuning the strings beyond just standard tuning and I couldn’t find that without having to pay for it on here so that’s unfortunate but it’s a great app overall. (Behold the longest run on sentence of all time)
GREAT, but I still have some ideas
by Kira.crystal on 2017/09/25 20:09
Read a different review if you want to know all the good the bugs about this app because they cover them all. I just wanted to make a suggestion. It is already so, so useful, but it would be even more useful if there was an option to play the learning games without a time limit so that the user could just practice accuracy if they are not ready for accuracy AND speed yet. A feature that tells you what chord/note you are playing would also be helpful if you want to play a chord/note and then check if it is what you meant to play.
Thank you!
by Pap Danger on 2018/07/24 18:03
In the last 55 years or so, Ive used every kind of tuner on the market and ended up thinking the Snark was the best of them all. The love affair lasted until I went to a picnic and sat down with a couple of friends to play a little. Dead battery, no Snark. I downloaded your app and haven’t looked back. We always have our phones in our pockets, so instant access to perfect tuning. Ever see a used guitar for sale in a shop that you can’t really tell anything about because every kid in the store has “tuned” it? No problem now. Thanks! Pap Danger
Only 4 because...
by Blitz766 on 2019/09/29 06:12
The pro version has a monthly fee. That’s a little ridiculous. For that I can (and will) go buy a standard 6 string tuner for less than a years cost for this app. That being said, if you have a 12 string, a bass, a mandolin, or any other stringed instrument, or multiple of those, very decent app but there are others out there without a recurring fee. If you don’t mind two bucks a month it’s WELL worth it. So, what you get for the subscription is pretty awesome. Then again the same could be said for an actual guitar tuner (device). For which you pay only once.
Yassss
by _allicorn 205___ on 2019/08/20 00:04
This app is amazing. It tunes guitars much faster then a clip tuner... but it still ends of sounding the same!!! I got back from a two month trip the other day, and this is the first time I’ve played guitar since because it was too big to bring. It took 27 minutes to tune because it was so out of tune, and at first I was irritated with the app, but I was looking through my photo app, watched a video of me playing “ode to joy” a few weeks before I left in that trip, and I realized, it WAS out of tune! This app is amazing, and I 100% reccomend.
Love it!!!

I have a ukulele and a guitar that both haven’t been used to much so they’re both quick to go out of tune. I’ve used other tuners before, but I love this one! It’s simple to use and great for beginners! I’ve taken lessons and have practice with my instruments, but sometimes I space out a bit and forget which notch tunes which string, but this tuner shows which notch to use, which string to play, and plays the note once before you start so you can figure out how bad/good your instrument’s string is! Totally love it and recommend!!!
Good but one flaw
by Pointe_up on 2019/01/27 23:30
I just recently got a ukulele, and I’ve been looking for an app that would help me tune quicker than by ear. I found this app and I was like jackpot. I got into it and it tuned my ukulele really well, and then I noticed the game feature. I was like, cool! So got on there and realized that there wasn’t a ukulele option for the games!! Maybe there is and I just can’t find it, but I can’t find a way to get it to change to ukulele!! If you give an option to tune a ukulele, then give an option to do games as a ukulele!! I’m a little bit frustrated, but other than that it’s a really good tuner!!
Killer tuning app
by Alter Bridge Freak on 2018/09/11 17:22
Well to start this off there are many times as we all know you get to a gig and your Snark is at home sitting on your acoustic guitar. This app has saved me plenty of times and well worth not having to go out and buy a Nother Snark over and over and over because you forgot it at home LOL. Not only that but I have several Tunings that I like to be in occasionally and this app allows you to store your own which is an amazing feature other apps do not have. You got to have your tuna and eat too!! Thanks! Chris

I’m a very old drummer, playing since I was eight years old...Currently playing in the Praise Band at my Church, and in a classic rock band the rest of time...I bought a used bass because back in 1969 I was the bass player for The Eight O’ Clock Engagement, and always loved the bass...Anyway, Guitar Tuna is the most precise tuning I have found anywhere...very easy to use (even for an old man), and it’s quick and painless...I use an I-Pad to access ...clip-on tuners just don’t work that well, so put the app on your phone, and take it with you to the gig...Easy !
Musicians New Best Friend

I've never written a review before, but this app deserves praise. Here's why: 1) Guitar Tuna is more accurate than most battery powered chromatic tuners. 2)As you tune your instrument, the pin on your screen will leave a line/trail behind, making it easy to see EXACTLY when you need to stop turning the peg. (No more relying on +1 -1 and waiting for the screen to turn green) 3)Guitar Tuna *Chimes* whenever you hit the perfect tune for the desired note 4)It's presets allow you to switch between a Guitar, bass, ukele, and many others with ease.
Thankful for this app!
by PoisonDartDog on 2017/07/24 04:50
I'm so glad that this awesome app is free. I can tune my guitars, ukuleles, and new banjo. I've had a few tuners but they all break easily. This app has saved me money and is so so easy to use. Its tuning is accurate and it's fun to use for a second. I look forward to re-tuning my instruments because it's so easy to reach the app and the noises it makes when I've tunes it right feels like a reward 😁 I especially love that they offer so many different instruments for free. I didn't think they'd help me tune my banjo for free, I'm so thankful!
I owe you this review
by Endless Nameless on 2017/08/10 23:22
I've had GuitarTuna for quite a long time and it's always been my go to tuning app. I was thumbing through the App Store and I thought, "there's GuitarTun. That's always been a great app. I should give them a review, because I have used it for quite a while. About three years ago, I was looking for an app that would tune my guitar, but this app has a LOT more, for the beginner and intermediate guitar player to get a more solid understanding about the guitar. I've never seen an update with glitches. It's always been perfect.
Trust me I’m not a robot
by kpg10 on 2019/08/07 23:46
The free option is great for double checking your tuning to make sure you’re correct. Honestly making sure you are perfect before you play is key so you know you are playing the most accurate and best music you can play. As a country music player I play with a capo and sometimes a half step down. Either way having a perfect standard tune makes it 10 times easier to either adjust from there or just play for fun. Thank you guitar tuna you guys and gals are the best.

GuitarTuna: Guitar, Bass tuner
Description
The #1 tuner in the world! This is not just a guitar tuner: we’ve got +100 tunings for 15 instruments! It’s fast, accurate and easy to use. GuitarTuna has been downloaded over 80 million times, which makes it the most downloaded tuning app in the world. Tuna has it all: • A LOT of tunings: standard, drop D, drop A, half step down and loads more • Metronome with tap-for-tempo and multiple time signatures • Chromatic tuner for alternative tunings and for tuning any instrument • The clean, intuitive and customisable UI makes it easy for anyone to use • Tools: Ear training, chord guide, games, and exercises. How it works: Just pluck a string on your instrument - Tuna detects the sound using your device’s microphone. You’ll get instant visual feedback while tuning. No cables needed. With our award-winning audio recognition technology, we guarantee you an insanely accurate tuning result. We use noise cancellation technology to eliminate background noises while you tune. The instruments we currently support: • Guitar • Guitar 7-String • Guitar 12-String • Ukulele • Cavaquinho • Bass • Bass 5-string • Violin • Viola • Cello • Fiddle • Mandolin • Balalaika • Banjo • Banjo 5-String • Chromatic tuner for all instruments We’ve put a lot of love and effort into making GuitarTuna the tuner it is today. User feedback is valuable to us, and you can be sure we’re listening. We recently added chromatic tuner to the app because of the sheer amount of requests for it. With the chromatic tuner, users can create their own tunings or tune basically any instrument (you can even identify your landline’s beeping frequency). GuitarTuna Pro subscription: Subscribe for unlimited access. Subscriptions are monthly. Prices may vary in different countries. Payment will be charged to iTunes Account. Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period. Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user’s iTunes Account Settings. Any unused portion of a free trial period will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription. GuitarTuna is developed by Yousician. Check out the app to learn and master guitar, ukulele, bass, piano or singing! It’s pretty cool you actually read this far! Here’s a joke for you: What’s the difference between a bass and a tuna? You can tuna bass, but you can’t bass a tuna. Now download the app and see how it is. Send us your feedback of the joke and the app to support@guitartuna.com! https://yousician.com/privacy-notice https://yousician.com/terms-of-service
Wow...

This app isn’t for acoustic guitars this BROKE one of my strings
Not worth monthly charge.
by Daved22 on 2019/12/13 14:34
What’s worse than an over expensive app? This one that asks you to subscribe and pay for it monthly forever! This app isn’t worth the ongoing cost.
Great App!!!!!

Best tuner ever

My guitar had a pre-amp, so I tried that for a while... And that wasn’t working, so I switched to GuitarTuna. 5 stars, best tuner ever.

Best tuner app! Wish alternate tunings were free
by Boyd1043 on 2019/12/08 05:45
Best tuner app! Wish alternate tunings were free! Especially open tubings and simple drop d. I know u can do a simple 12th fret harmonic on low E to get ur drop D but for the beginner they should at least offer that free
Ads on a paid version is unacceptable
by AdsForLifeIguess on 2019/12/08 00:53
Pretty much the title. Look, I understand popping ads in your face if you’re using a free version of an app. Developers have to make money somehow. However, I paid full price for this app and I get Yousician ads thrown in my face mid tuning. Just no, I’ve seen this trend becoming more the norm on other applications and if consumers don’t do something about it now, it’ll get out of control. I paid for the program. Let me use it in peace please.
Easy free tuner
by guitarloverzz on 2019/12/07 23:57
This app is the best tuner for free! All other apps you have to pay or don’t work well. I don’t have to worry anymore about buying tuners. best app ever!!
So good
by PERSON 908 on 2019/12/07 23:53
I’ve been playing guitar for my school for almost a year and this is a great app to tune my guitar for school even my school recommended this app!
Greedy and sad...but mostly greedy
by Wvlkv on 2019/12/07 22:35
This app used to be a one time buy all for one price of $10, which is reasonable. Now they want you to pay monthly which is greedy and ridiculous. I used to be so proud of this app and told hundreds of musicians about it. Not anymore... :(
Sooooooo good even has other helpful stuff other than just a tuner
by Rockybear11 on 2019/12/07 21:29
Definitely get it is a super good app

I’ve had this app for two years and it has helped me out A LOT. I wish you didn’t have to pay for a membership tho...
Please fix!!!!!
by harleyquinn4lolz on 2019/12/05 23:09
I love your app but recently I redownloaded it and now it crashes as soon as I open it!!!!! I love using your tuner but please fix it!!
So easy!🎼
by BrubakerGal on 2019/12/05 18:40
I downloaded this app because I began playing Ukulele. I thought tuning was going to be super confusing, but this app makes it so easy! It’s so simple which gives me more time to practice! Literally takes almost 2 minutes depending on the last time you have tuned your instrument. Get this app! You will NOT regret it!🤩
One of my most-used apps
by totsandtrinkets on 2019/12/05 09:50
I absolutely LOVE this app. It is the ONLY tuner I use for my guitars (6 and 12 string acoustics) and my Uke. It is more accurate than electronic or built-in tuners. I usually put my phone on my knee while tuning so that it sits near the body of my instrument. I love how in manual mode, you can select each string individually and hear an example of what that string, properly tuned, sounds like. Sometimes the app chimes saying that my string is tuned correctly, even tho it sounds a bit off to me. So I recommend fine-tuning by ear after you get your instrument pretty close to being tuned with the app. I love the chord library, where you can not only see correct finger placement on an image of a fretboard, but there is also a color-coded hand on each chord, which shows you exactly which finger should be placed on each string. You can also hear examples of each and every chord. The only thing I don’t get is why the App Store listing claims there is a subscription service and in.qpp purchases. I have NEVER run into anything of the sort in my years of using this app. I don’t even see a place anywhere in the app that has in-app purchases. Unless there used to be a one time purchase option that I don’t remember purchasing? Dunno. As I said, I’ve had this app for years. Last but not least- your bass and tune joke was fantastic and made me giggle out loud. Here’s another one for ya- What do you get when you throw a piano down a mine shaft? A Flat Minor Oh and one final suggestion- for your Iraqi users, make sure you add BAGDAD to your standard tuning library. 😜
Excellent!!

The Dog Days Are Over
by Stephwilly on 2019/12/03 21:31
Best app ever! I have compared it to multiple other guitar tuners that require batteries and always need replaced and I can assure you this tuner is on point! The days of buying a tuner and hoping the battery isn’t dying during tuning are long gone.
Great

Great Guitar Tuner 👍🏻👍🏻
by Sam 230 on 2019/12/03 02:45
I love this app and think it’s a really great guitar tuner, I almost always have my phone with me, so whether I’m about to practice, or just whenever I pick up my guitar, I like to keep it in tune, that’s why I like this app, it’s quick, easy, guitar tuning...
Good app
by It.me.alisa on 2019/12/03 02:24

Developer will nickel and dime you
by ianthompson on 2019/12/02 00:32
I paid for the full version of the app, with all the tubings a while ago. Yes it was a lot, but I use the app all the time and it works great. But they want me to pay $3.99 a month for just a regular chromatic tuner? That’s a huge scam. The developers should be ashamed of themselves.

Premium
by GeraldEdlareg on 2019/12/01 16:56
I have used this app for many years to tune my banjo and I have even recommended it to my students to tune their banjos; seeing as I teach a banjo class. I loved the app and everything about it until recently when the app updated. I NOW HAVE TO PAY TO TUNE A BANJO! This is an outrage. I never get angry, but when I learned of this, I fumed for days. I am very unsatisfied with this app now and will no longer recommend it. I will not pay to do something as simple as tune a folk instrument on a mobile app. I am now planning to invest in a clip-on tuner that is much more accurate, and it will pay for itself (unlike this app).
Nice
by Bet billy Scott on 2019/11/29 22:07
Decently decent
Bad for bass tuning
by Creepy Dragon15 on 2019/11/28 16:34
Edit:So now it’s started tuning my e string but there isn’t any of the teaching parts for bass like there is for guitar, up 2 more stars but still wanting a bit more I got this after SamuraiGuitarist mentioned it in a video and I decided to tune my bass. What a mistake, it can’t even understand the E string, really disappointing. Will update later I remember
Extras abound
by pepto_gecko on 2019/11/28 16:11
I bought this in desperate need of a simple tuner. This app is so much more! Best tuning app on the market!!
most accurate
by mird mird on 2019/11/28 01:27
this app uses the measurement of cents. human ear hears a difference of 15 cents, below that very hard to tell the difference between pitches. if you tune your strings no more than 3 to 5 cents, your music will be beautiful and professional sounding
Best guitar app ever!!!
by Ava tingzzz on 2019/11/27 20:06
I love this app so much, it is so accurate! Another plus is, it worked on other instruments which is great for me, totally recommend to any instrument player. Super happy with this app! :)

Does the job
by srmanzo on 2019/11/16 20:51
I don’t always care for a headstock mounted tuner and before I get the hate, I know that’s the preferred method to get a full tonal tune but on the move this works great. I’d love to have some half step down tuning options as some things just need a half step down. Other than that, it’s my go to when I don’t have a tuner clamped to the headstock
Perfect

Metronome
by La Chr on 2019/11/16 00:39
Although I do play guitar and use this app to tune, I also am studying piano and find that the metronome is really helpful. I like the option of the different time signatures, but where is 3/8? That is the time signature I need tonight. Thanks so much for this app.
Recommend!!!
by ayeissajess101 on 2019/11/15 05:03
This app helped a lot, I have been looking for apps all day and this one was a lifesaver. I will continue to use it and I recommend this app for beginners and for people who are looking for a tune, and it’s free. You don’t need to buy a 10 dollar one when you have this one. Thank you for creating this. Amazing!
Best guitar tuner!

Love having a tuner in my pocket at all times!
Nice app

Ripped off
by flip floppy walrus on 2019/11/15 00:59
I have had this app for a long time. Back in the day there was an option to buy all of the tunings in one package so I did, but now the app has become a subscription service. What happened to my other tunings? When I tried to restore my purchase nothing changed. Did they take my money and run off with it????
Excellent guitar tuner
by SFCCHAPMAN on 2019/11/14 05:32
I know nearly nothing about playing a guitar, so tuning is a challenge for me, with this app, my guitar is always in tune for when I’m ready to practice. I would highly recommend this app, especially for newbies.
Best Tuner

This app is outstanding.
Very good
by mickmaddenofficial on 2019/11/13 20:37
I think for someone who needs to tune there guitar fast it is great and quick, the only problem is it doesn’t work great in loud places, which is not the apps fault. So my review is great

The best one I’m a beginner and I love it .
Get this one
by GuitarsCc on 2019/11/13 15:35
It's way worth it and it's free. I use it everyday and I'm a advanced, maybe expert player. It's easy enough for the beginners, which I like because I tend to smoke a lot of weed and forget things. Great Success! Thanks

I have tried playing guitar before. Tuning always stopped me. This has been great. My chords sound so much better so it keeps me practicing
Secret weapon
by Bggggeeeedd on 2018/04/15 01:20
I downloaded this app thinking it was just a standard guitar tuner. I used it for about 6 months just as a tuner. I needed to tune a 12 string acoustic for my dad and didn't have a 12 string tuner. I did a little exploring in this app and low and behold I found it actually has a setting just for 12 strings! It cut the time of tuning from ear to doing it off the app from 10 minutes + by ear to barely any time with using the app. So as I realized I hadn't takin advantage of the app as much as I should I started exploring even more. It's a gold mine of knowledge. Not only is it a tuner (best app tuner I've used personally) but it also has a metronome , games , chords, a plethora of instruments to choose from and it's SUPER easy to navigate. I got my dad an iPhone (first iPhone he's 65) and he always complained about how it was hard to use. I showed him the GuitarTuna app and he hasn't ever had any confusion with how to use it. I think that says a lot of how instinctive the user interface is if my dad can do it :P all in all I can't recommend this app enough. I literally tell all my guitar player friends to try it and not one has said anything negative about it. I love it! I can't imagine how the developers can make it better than it already is but something tells me they will! Thanks for making an awesome app. From one musician to another, THANKS!!! Cheers! -Brad.
I really like this app!!
by shorty0979 on 2017/10/24 17:08
I've never personally tuned a guitar,- I've always had to have someone tune it for me when I briefly owned several guitars many years ago. At the time, I had bought them for my (now) ex husband so he was the one who always tuned them. But unfortunately, when I eventually left him- He got rid of them all instead of giving them to me since I paid for all of them. So needless to say, I've never really had the chance to learn how to play much at all. Recently, I was given another guitar from my sister, & knew I needed to learn how to tune it so I downloaded this app. I find it extremely easy to use & very helpful. Now I can tune my guitar (& maybe??) FINALLY learn how to play like I've always wanted too!! I LOVE Music & have to listen to it daily, it's my "Escape" from the world, my life, & all the problems or stresses that I might face daily. I've always wanted to learn how to play for as long as I can remember, so that I could eventually learn to play (at least some??) of the songs I love to listen to everyday or maybe even some that I grew up listening to as a kid. I'm thankful for this app so I can begin my journey towards reaching my goal/dream of learning how to play guitar & music. Thank you for making this app so very easy!! I Love It!!
Nice app definitely recommended
by Xx_DonutEater_xX on 2018/01/19 20:29
Hello everyone reading this. This is an app that made my life so much easier. I started playing guitar 4 months ago and I didn’t know anything about the guitar. So I needed someone to tune my guitar for me or at least help me (My grandpa knows how to play and tune guitar. He was pretty young when he started playing on it. But I can’t always ask him to help me). So this app was just perfect for me. It’s free. It shows you all the chords. It’s precise while tuning. And it has little mini-games as well (although if you want more games you need to pay. But it’s pretty reasonable price). So the bottom line than. If you want the basics of the basics on guitar this is the app that will provide you with anything. If you want to learn more you need to pay (But I think their Yousician app is much better if you wanna “master” the guitar). And the best thing is that the app is beautiful, it has a good tuner and all the chords you will probably ever need. (This was kinda too big of a bottom line 🤣) Thank you for reading!
Versatile and very usable
by Charles Bailey ~ on 2017/07/09 16:09
The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.
I love this app!
by Alyssa P. J. on 2018/06/07 06:38
This app has been amazing! Before I get into detail, this app has helped me learn so much, and I’m so glad I downloaded it. It has been the easiest way for me to learn chords. I first downloaded this app when I began playing guitar, to help keep it in tune. As I became more familiar with the app and my guitar, I started using the “learn to play chords” feature. When I was ready to learn new chords I purchased the full version. One of the best purchases I could’ve made. All of the features expand for the guitar. But, not all of the features expand for the ukulele. This is pretty disappointing. This app has been a foundation for me learning to play and I really wish they had the “learn to play chords” feature for the uke. Hopefully the developers are working on this! Honestly if you’re newer (or even experienced) to playing and are looking for an app to help you get your instrument in tune and learn new chords I’d recommend this app.
Great for any level guitarist
by Sputnik Stan on 2018/02/17 01:28
I have played guitar for over 20 years. I love this app. It is a relatively accurate tuner that is always as close as your phone. I play guitar and bass, depending on what band I am playing with and my mood. I enjoy this app because of the versatility of the tunings. Sometimes I play in standard, sometimes half a step down, sometimes in drop C, and open tunings. All of these and more are a simple menu away. I use my Korg strobe tuner with my rig and a needle tuner for setups, but I honestly use Guitar Tuna more often than any other tuner. Plus there are lots and lots of other features for actually learning to play the guitar and work on your skills that I haven’t even touched. Even the free version is great for standard tuning. Drop the money and get the app. You will see that you get more than you pay for!
Solid Tuner
by thebanjitarninja on 2018/10/08 03:41
Lemme start with the one flaw: WAY too many ads for Yousician. I've heard great things about Yousician, don't get me wrong, but it just seems a little silly to have a whole section in the toolbar devoted to a different app. Now that my complaint is outta the way, I have to thank the devs. Like, seriously. Thank you guys. I am by no means an avid musician (I just picked up banjitar a month ago, and the only other musical knowledge I have is choral), and this lil app right here has helped so much. The tuner itself, the initial reason I got GuitarTuna, is phenomenally precise, even in my old iPhone 5c. I'd swear by it. There's also the super extensive chord library, which I will never have the expertise to fully delve into. GuitarTuna has helped this awkward, musically naïve teenage dude begin his journey down the road of banjitar enlightenment. This is one app that will always have a place very close to my heart: in my phone.
The King of the Field!!
by Joshua of Oregon on 2019/03/31 16:48
From all of the tunner apps on the market I’m only reviewing the ones that are free. Being a real musician, and currently having zero to no money, when I type into google ‘tuner apps for free’ I’m assuming the results are going to be representative of free tuner apps.....not apps that are free until you want to tune with them.... Apparently that’s what most app development people assuming is going to work. What they don’t understand is that when I go through all of the effort of finding your app, downloading your app, installing your app, opening your app, and learning how to use your app....only to be greeted with “you must purchase this app in order to get it to work…They not only have lost a customer… They’ve made an enemy for life… I actually have a special spot in my password black book it’s labeled poison… In on this page or only the names of the developers who have wasted my time by misrepresenting their free app… This app, is a breathe of fresh air. You can actually use this app to tune your guitar for free… If you pay additional amount it’ll do a lot more cool stuff for you, but if you don’t have the money to pay for the upgrades, it still functions fantastically as a tuner … Four stars… A+ plus… Way to go guys you’re the best
Best for learning guitar
by Lazy Crative on 2017/09/29 21:12
Have you ever taken a class where the instructor not only allowed smart phones but insisted you download a specific app? Last year at my college I took a guitar class for non music major with no previous experience in guitar. It is called guitar class. So there were other students in it. It was 1 credit hour & I got an A. If you pass that with at least a C you can only take it once. I'm currently in what os called guitar elective. That is a one on one lesson in his office. Elective guitar can be taken as many times as the student wants. The pendulum is crucial to learning & the tuning is crucial to just using a guitar. This music teacher could teach a rhesus monkey to play the ukulele. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the guitar whether they are a beginner or a pro stadium musician.
More like a blessing than an app
by TheTenthDoctorIsSexy on 2018/02/11 03:16
My friend introduced me to this app and since then, this app has been a blessing in my life. With it, I am able to tune my ukulele, violin, guitar, and my best friend's cello. It is so easy to use and is very precise. Even with the free version (which is what I have) there is so much you can do. Not only can you tune your instrument with this app, but you can also use the tools in the app such as the metronome or the chords tool where it shows you the fingering for different chords on the ukulele and guitar. It also has an option in the chords tool where you can listen to the chord to make sure you are playing it correctly. Overall: I rate this a 6/5. This is probably the most useful app I have downloaded on my phone and it is so easy to use. Love love love it!!!
Great app, extremely useful.
by MLGsniperclanminecrafter on 2017/12/31 19:56
When I started playing Ukulele, I could never keep it in tune, it was a pain, and I had no idea where to start, so when I started learning guitar, I was even more overwhelmed. When I was playing one night with my horrendous sounding guitar, a friend told me about this app. I downloaded it, and almost instantly, my guitar and ukulele were sounding great. A year later, this app is still my go-to tuner, and although I do know how to tune without an app or tuner, this app truly helps me when I’m not quite sure. I recommend this to any guitarist, whether you’re a beginner, an amateur, or a pro. Even if you have a clip on tuner, this app is great for when you leave it at home, or can’t find it. 10/10 would download again.
Great, but with a couple annoying quirks
by katieyouoldfool on 2019/07/31 08:05
Before anything else, let me say this app is still 100% worth getting and I use it pretty much every day. It’s not just a tuner, it’s everything you need when practicing on your own. BUT there are a couple minor problems that got pretty annoying the more I used the app. The chord library interface is really bad. I love that they have so many chords and alternate fingerings, but really I wish there was just a button for each chord, instead of having to slowly scroll a dial through every note and variation to find the one I need. Also, I think the tuning calibration might be off. In settings, it says it’s automatically calibrated to to 440hz. But, whenever I play something already tuned properly to 440, like a digital keyboard, it reads as a 2-3 semitones too high. I’ve tried this with multiple instruments and used the app on several different devices and it happens every time. You can easily get around this by just changing the calibration to 443hz in settings, but it’s something to keep in mind, especially if you play in a group with other people. Again, I still recommend this app, flaws and all. There are just a couple things I’d love to see improved in future updates.
Works very well
by SevinStorey on 2018/04/09 03:11
As a young boy (in my early 20’s) I picked up my first hand me down flat top and bought a chord chart poster from Walmart and self taught myself how to strum chords enough to eventually start playing parties and small bars. I never did learn how to tune however but I can definitely tell when she’s out. I would always have to ask a friend or count on a small tuner that was easy to misplace or lose but now I can do it on my phone which I always have in my pocket and its extremely accurate as I’ve checked it on tuners and with class act guitar players including myself. There’s no bothersome pop ups (thank God) and it never asks me to buy anything,(again thank God) or I would drop it from my phone. Great deal for anybody out there.
great for learning the basics but...
by smhgamergal on 2019/06/29 14:00
It only gets 3 stars because they need to add a feature where you can play the chord practice games without a timer, Because it gets really annoying to have to keep restarting the game if you are a novice trying to learn the chords and can only get a couple before you have to stop and pickup your phone to restart the lesson. I was so stoked to see there was a feature that would teach you the chords and pick up if you were playing them correctly through the microphone and I paid for the full app only to find out how ridiculously obnoxious it is to have to restart every 45 seconds. seriously you need to add a feature where you can just play the games with no timer or with a custom timer. it's messed up the way it is now where you can only play each game for 45 seconds at a time.
So good i wrote a review.
by Sbpoodoo312 on 2018/02/11 07:26
Making the switch to trying life as an all digital, all mobile, iPhone based guitar(enthus)i(a)st ... giving up tubes and pedals for simplicity’s sake. I am trying out many dozens of guitar apps as a result — including tuners — and this one definitely stands out. I wish alternate tunings came free, but its worth the (minimal) price if you need them. Many of the apps i have used have tuners built in to them but — even when i am actively using just such an app — i still find myself switching to this one, and honestly i couldnt tell exactly quite why. Maybe its the fengshui of the layout but this app just has that all around quality feeling that makes it rise above the rest. Yeah, its just a tuner, but it nails the execution.
sick!
by yum~yum🗿 on 2019/05/30 23:17
i got this app when i FIRST started playing guitar and it did its job well, taught me all my major chords and tuned my guitar pretty well, but as i progressed (learned everything the app had to offer) i realized i needed everything else the app had to offer so i purchased the pro version and its 10x more useful. Basically what im trying to say is this app is great for beginners (beginner myself) but you definitely need the pro version if you’re really gonna take guitar seriously and use it on a day to day basis to teach yourself guitar and progress, unless you’re going for in person lessons with a teacher of course. If you're not going for in person lessons don't worry this app will take care of you.
Loved it. No complaints.
by kaejisan on 2018/09/10 01:00
I love this app. I’ll be honest, I’m not musically inclined. I have no sense of rhythm, I can’t come close to reading sheet music, and I was just about done dreaming of being a musician (without any success). I wanted to let myself down easy. However, I found this app, and considering the good reviews, I figured I’d give it a shot. I finally managed to tune the guitar I hadn’t touched since fourth grade when I got it, and even my sister’s crappy Five-Below ukulele. This app works wonders. I even learned a few chords. Crazy. Unfortunately, I cannot access the shop to unlock any new chords. That has nothing to do with the app, though. That’s my problem, haha. However, this app inspired me to learn a new skill. While I’m going to have to go online for new chords, I need to say that this app set me up for success — so far. Again, I’m no professional. I’m a high school freshman whose friend said you can get girls with guitar. I’m a 5’1 ginger, so I need all the help I can get. Maybe I can be the new Ed Sheeran? Probably not, but at least now someone can find some appeal in my personality :) Thank you, GuitarTuna! -Kadison
More than just a tuner
by rainbow chords on 2019/07/31 22:00
I downloaded this app cause I didn’t have a guitar tuner and I didn’t want to buy one if I didn’t have to. So I downloaded this app thinking it was just a tuner, and only using it as a tuner for a few weeks. But one day I was trying to learn a song on guitar and I didn’t know one of the chords, so I was looking through apps but all of the good ones had you do the subscription and pay and whatnot, then I tried looking it up but it didn’t help, so I gave up basically. Then I was experimenting around with this app, seeing what else it had, and then I found it! Under games I found a learn chords game and the learn to play chords game and I found the chord I was looking for!
Good accuracy
by Criticbuster on 2018/07/06 07:49
I don’t usually write reviews about apps, since I find it very helpful to read about others experiences with apps, maybe mine can help people as well. I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, so I was just looking for an app that could tune the guitar accurately. I love the fact that the app has so many separate parts that you can add to it. I don’t need all the other stuff, other players may enjoy the chord library, metronome, and the practice sections it has. Only thing I would like to see is the standard guitar interface have the ability to tune chromatically instead of having no guitar image at all. But great app!
Overall great, but missing a few things
by Cece8289 on 2018/11/20 17:21
Let me start by saying this is a REALLY good app. It’s very accurate, it saves me tons of time with tuning, and it has ALMOST every tuning under the sun to choose from. That being said, for more advanced players who are using less popular tunings like drop G, drop G#, drop F, etc., you’re going to have a really tough time because those aren’t an option. There IS an option to custom tune a 6 string which is great, but does also have some limitations. But I really do wish there was an option to do custom tuning for a 7 string because they only offer standard and drop A for 7 strings (yeah, they’re the most commonly used, but not the only ways to tune a 7 string). But otherwise, really well made app!
Great App, having trouble restoring old purchases
by DanFingerMan on 2019/08/08 00:56
Been using app for about a year or so. My go-to tuner for guitar tunings. However, I have a slight problem with restoring my guitar tuning options. I recently had to change phones because old phone was badly damaged and I have most guitar tunings unlocked on that version of the app (previous phone). I see now that I have to subscribe in order to unlock the tunings rather than simply being able to buy the ones you need? Is that the reason I cannot access the previous library of tunes I purchased a while back? Please help. I like this app a lot as it provides super accurate tuning.
Best tuner ever!
by X-Clasher on 2018/08/01 23:11
That might be a slightly bias statement but it's from someone who has had GuitarTuna for close to I wanna say 3 maybe 4 years. My point is that in all this time as long as I had my phone with me, any guitar was gonna be in tune. And I haven't dabbled much outside of standard tuning but with the ease of user interaction I'm sure all of them are worth it. I recommend this app to every guitar player I know and now I'm finally taking a moment to recommend this app to all of you whom I don't know. Look no further, this is the app you need to keep your strings singing in harmony 👍🏼 And finally, just a big Thank You to GuitarTuna for existing! MVA! (Most Valuable App) lol
One of the best apps ever!
by juniper hoffman on 2019/06/09 10:20
This is one of the best apps I’ve ever used. I really like how it has both the tuning part of the app AND also the part where it tells/teaches you how to play different chords on the guitar. I’ve literally tried almost every single app out there and I have yet to find any apps that are like this one. PLUS it ALSO kinda lets you do all different kinds of stuff on this app as well! 😲 Thank you so much for creating this app! It has REALLY been useful for me for when I am tuning up my guitar AND trying to learn how to play different chords on the guitar as well! 🎸 😊 😃 Once again... thank you GuitarTuna for creating this app! ☺️
This is Absolutely GREAT!! Totally recommend!!
by Reynolds137 on 2019/01/25 02:22
So, I just started playing the ukalele and this app has really helped me tune my ukalele without being OVERLY confused. I love this app so much because It also helps me learn my cords. This app is very useful and helpful ! Totally recommend this app for any type of guitar/ ukalele, etc. players and even beginners like me! This app also tells me some awesome songs that I can play and rock! There is also learn cord games which is VERY fun and little do you know is helping you learn your instruments cords! LOVE THIS APP!! Like I said TOTALLY RECOMMEND for anyone trying to play the guitar, ukalele, etc. Thanks! And that is a wrap on why I gave this app a 5 star rating !!!
Great tuner
by Original PBR Man on 2018/06/13 20:34
This tuner is quick and easy to use. It has both visual and audible cues to let you know when your string is perfectly in tune. With the free version, you can select from different tunings: guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho. It includes a metronome with many different counts (4/4, 5/4, 7/4, etc), and a chord library. There are also some games, but I haven’t played any of them. You will need to upgrade (pay $) to get alternative/ custom tunings. With the upgrade you get tunings for guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho, as well as 7 and 12 string guitar, 5 string bass, violin family and folk instruments. I only have the free version so I can’t review the upgrade.
Easiest best guitar tuner
by vansonn on 2018/06/02 15:34
I was moving and was going to get rid of my guitar since I never learned to play it and decided to keep it and learn. I had an old electric tuner that needed new batteries so I downloaded this app. People had messed with my guitar over the years while it just sat in a corner and so it was way out of tune. With this app I was able to get it back in tune in less than a minute (first time using the app). So, needless to say, this app is extremely easy to use and very accurate as well. Big thx to whoever made it. I have been playing for about three weeks now and am progressing quickly thx to this guitar tuner.
Efficient
by Rosedust24 on 2017/03/13 19:47
It's a music tuning app, so there will be pros and cons. The fact that we do not have to go out and purchase a decent tuner should make us all happy. Like anything else, it can mess up. These are minor, like when the microphone struggles with picking up the sound waves, it will tweak out sometimes. Oh and the pop up that asks users to rate the app.. so I finally did it. Though, I'm sure it will keep popping up every now and then. Other than that, I use it just about every day. I've tried some other tuning apps, but i prefer the dark theme of GuitarTuna! And it's set up nicely, easy to see and auto tune.
Can’t just view frequency any more
by Agentmith on 2019/03/05 18:32
I’ve been using this to tune various non-standard instruments based on frequency and never had a problem until today. It keeps bringing me to the store page for some reason and it’s incredibly frustrating. Before, all I needed to do was open the app and it wouldn’t be associated with an instrument, it just measured the frequency and told me if the pitch value was correct. This is literally all I want, and I can’t find this anymore. I’ve restored purchases and all that. If this used to be something that was removed and is now a paid in-app purchase or a subscription, I’ll just ditch this and use something else, which I hope isn’t the case as I’ve used this app for years. Its a dirty practice to remove features that were included for however long then ask for more money to get them back.
Teacher approved
by Lyrikailee on 2018/11/16 21:59
As I teach music lessons, I’m always looking for new tools to make my and my students’ job easier. This app certainly fits the bill. I love that it automatically switches strings so you can use the app hands-free. I love that you can see which tuning peg goes with the string you’re tuning (as long as it’s close enough to the note it’s supposed to be). If it’s way off, you can tap the peg and it will play the corresponding pitch for that string so you know to tune up or down. Very visual and intuitive. It has a tap tempo metronome too! That is a HUGE plus as I teach students how to play with a metronome, because they can tap the tempo they are currently comfortably playing at and it takes out the guesswork. I could go on, as I just recently discovered the chords section (very helpful when we are switching to ukulele and I need to remind myself the difference). Oh and did I mention they have more than just standard tuning? Yep, they have a visual ukulele tuner too! Fantastic.
New update lags behind
by Ultistat on 2017/01/28 10:03
I've used this app for several months now, and it's been great so far. Great as a chord reference guide, great for its primary tuning capabilities. No complaints prior to the most recent update. However, as of this update made available several days ago, I have noticed that the swiping mechanism within the app seems delayed. It doesn't feel as responsive as it was before, and there is a lag once you swipe until the panel stops moving. This is a nuisance, requiring multiple attempts to do something that once required one smooth swipe across the screen. Moreover, the chord diagrams seem significantly smaller (although with higher resolutions) than before, making them less impactful than before. It would be great if these issues could be resolved, as I love using this app and will continue to use this app in spite of the minor inconveniences sourced from this update. Also, it would be cool if guitar scales were also available within the app, I would find it super helpful in my quest towards guitar proficiency. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see these changes made soon!
Kids love this app
by Don'tWantToType on 2017/05/17 18:59
Update: sometimes it just goes blank, no reference as to how off you are on tuning a particular string. It just couldn't hear the "G" on one of the guitars. Downloaded another app and tuned that one last string in 5 seconds. Intuitive app, was able to tune the guitar in 5 min on our first time trying it out. So far didn't see any annoying ads or payment pushing. Just used it with a 7 yr old who enjoyed tuning his guitar! Normally guitar practice is a chore, but this app added some excitement to the mix. To use, tap on what string you are to tune, then start tapping the string with right hand while the left is tightening/loosening. Easy to see if you are getting closer. Once the string is tuned a pleasant sound rings (that's a smile right there). To improve, I would recommend a sound or a voice notification when you need to go higher or lower. Or a bright beaming light, or arrow that points where you need to go. The text notifications are helpful, but not as attractive as the rest of the app. Keep up the great work!
Not going good so far
by @simply._.carley on 2019/09/15 20:12
Okay so I’m 12 going on 13 and I have used this app for almost 5 months now, because my Teacher recommended me to get it, She said that it would be easy to use for me so that I could tune my guitar. And it has up until now, today I was going to practice my guitar and figured it was probably out of tune, so I got on the app and started to tune it. When I got to my low E, it kept saying it was in tune and I knew it wasn’t, I even deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still didn’t work, so until y’all get it fixed I’m going to use another app. NOT HAPPY😬😤😤
Best tuning app so far
by DKKeyes on 2017/07/15 17:24
This is my go-to tuner any time. It's not only the most easy to use and accurate tuner, it also has a lot of awesome features I love. I teach guitar and I tell all my students to download this app because of it's other awesome features - The chord library is very helpful for anyone who needs a quick reference guide and the color scheme makes it user friendly for people of all ages. The games are a fun way for people to learn and self-teach themselves technique while making it fun. The included metronome is a great perk and it's easy to use and adjust. Great job creating this app!
Amazing App
by Ebdnekek on 2019/06/19 02:46
I’ve been playing guitar for almost half a year and I can’t explain how helpful this app is. Its multitude of settings, tools, games, and songs makes this app great. The metronome has come in handy many times with slowing down a song and increasing the bpm every time I feel comfortable with it. I would 100% recommend this app to people looking to start using guitar because of its accessibility and usefulness for free, and I would recommend it for more advanced players if you’re willing to pay a dollar or two for better settings. Amazing App.
Good App
by CatFun182 on 2017/03/18 00:58
I highly recommend it. I got a guitar 5 days ago, and I used this apps games. It's $7 for all the levels in the game but it's worth it. In my opinion, he games are the easiest way to learn the chords, and each level has different chords in it. The games also tell you if you're doing the chord right which is nice to have. I prefer this app over the fingering chart book that my dad gave me! It's a good app that makes guitars easier to learn. Another thing to note is that you can also learn the bass, the ukulele, and both acoustic and electric guitars using this app.
Great for beginners

I just started learning how to play guitar and this app helps so much! Don’t have the time to find and use a tutor in person so I’ve been YouTubing songs and practicing when I can. Not only does it save you the money from buying a tuner, if you come across a chord you aren’t comfortable with or don’t know or maybe just want to see the other ways to play it, there’s a section just for chords. I enjoy this app and will be using it far into the future. Thank you to all the people who spent their time making this amazing tool!
AMAZING FAST AND ACCURATE
by Katniss57 on 2019/01/16 17:59
I used to not want to play my guitar because tuning it was such a pain, then I got this app and now it’s SO fast! Ill be with people and I’ll tune my guitar with this app then they go “woah that was fast” 10/10 recommend. I’m not an advanced guitar player though so idk if they have this or if I just couldn’t find it but I’ve seen people talk about tuning the strings beyond just standard tuning and I couldn’t find that without having to pay for it on here so that’s unfortunate but it’s a great app overall. (Behold the longest run on sentence of all time)
GREAT, but I still have some ideas
by Kira.crystal on 2017/09/25 20:09
Read a different review if you want to know all the good the bugs about this app because they cover them all. I just wanted to make a suggestion. It is already so, so useful, but it would be even more useful if there was an option to play the learning games without a time limit so that the user could just practice accuracy if they are not ready for accuracy AND speed yet. A feature that tells you what chord/note you are playing would also be helpful if you want to play a chord/note and then check if it is what you meant to play.
Thank you!

In the last 55 years or so, Ive used every kind of tuner on the market and ended up thinking the Snark was the best of them all. The love affair lasted until I went to a picnic and sat down with a couple of friends to play a little. Dead battery, no Snark. I downloaded your app and haven’t looked back. We always have our phones in our pockets, so instant access to perfect tuning. Ever see a used guitar for sale in a shop that you can’t really tell anything about because every kid in the store has “tuned” it? No problem now. Thanks! Pap Danger
Only 4 because...
by Blitz766 on 2019/09/29 06:12
The pro version has a monthly fee. That’s a little ridiculous. For that I can (and will) go buy a standard 6 string tuner for less than a years cost for this app. That being said, if you have a 12 string, a bass, a mandolin, or any other stringed instrument, or multiple of those, very decent app but there are others out there without a recurring fee. If you don’t mind two bucks a month it’s WELL worth it. So, what you get for the subscription is pretty awesome. Then again the same could be said for an actual guitar tuner (device). For which you pay only once.

This app is amazing. It tunes guitars much faster then a clip tuner... but it still ends of sounding the same!!! I got back from a two month trip the other day, and this is the first time I’ve played guitar since because it was too big to bring. It took 27 minutes to tune because it was so out of tune, and at first I was irritated with the app, but I was looking through my photo app, watched a video of me playing “ode to joy” a few weeks before I left in that trip, and I realized, it WAS out of tune! This app is amazing, and I 100% reccomend.
Love it!!!
by Kit_Kat__ on 2019/01/13 03:29
I have a ukulele and a guitar that both haven’t been used to much so they’re both quick to go out of tune. I’ve used other tuners before, but I love this one! It’s simple to use and great for beginners! I’ve taken lessons and have practice with my instruments, but sometimes I space out a bit and forget which notch tunes which string, but this tuner shows which notch to use, which string to play, and plays the note once before you start so you can figure out how bad/good your instrument’s string is! Totally love it and recommend!!!
Good but one flaw
by Pointe_up on 2019/01/27 23:30
I just recently got a ukulele, and I’ve been looking for an app that would help me tune quicker than by ear. I found this app and I was like jackpot. I got into it and it tuned my ukulele really well, and then I noticed the game feature. I was like, cool! So got on there and realized that there wasn’t a ukulele option for the games!! Maybe there is and I just can’t find it, but I can’t find a way to get it to change to ukulele!! If you give an option to tune a ukulele, then give an option to do games as a ukulele!! I’m a little bit frustrated, but other than that it’s a really good tuner!!
Killer tuning app
by Alter Bridge Freak on 2018/09/11 17:22
Well to start this off there are many times as we all know you get to a gig and your Snark is at home sitting on your acoustic guitar. This app has saved me plenty of times and well worth not having to go out and buy a Nother Snark over and over and over because you forgot it at home LOL. Not only that but I have several Tunings that I like to be in occasionally and this app allows you to store your own which is an amazing feature other apps do not have. You got to have your tuna and eat too!! Thanks! Chris
Beats Clip-on’s by a MILE

I’m a very old drummer, playing since I was eight years old...Currently playing in the Praise Band at my Church, and in a classic rock band the rest of time...I bought a used bass because back in 1969 I was the bass player for The Eight O’ Clock Engagement, and always loved the bass...Anyway, Guitar Tuna is the most precise tuning I have found anywhere...very easy to use (even for an old man), and it’s quick and painless...I use an I-Pad to access ...clip-on tuners just don’t work that well, so put the app on your phone, and take it with you to the gig...Easy !
Musicians New Best Friend
by Wilber12345 on 2017/09/11 12:26
I've never written a review before, but this app deserves praise. Here's why: 1) Guitar Tuna is more accurate than most battery powered chromatic tuners. 2)As you tune your instrument, the pin on your screen will leave a line/trail behind, making it easy to see EXACTLY when you need to stop turning the peg. (No more relying on +1 -1 and waiting for the screen to turn green) 3)Guitar Tuna *Chimes* whenever you hit the perfect tune for the desired note 4)It's presets allow you to switch between a Guitar, bass, ukele, and many others with ease.
Thankful for this app!
by PoisonDartDog on 2017/07/24 04:50
I'm so glad that this awesome app is free. I can tune my guitars, ukuleles, and new banjo. I've had a few tuners but they all break easily. This app has saved me money and is so so easy to use. Its tuning is accurate and it's fun to use for a second. I look forward to re-tuning my instruments because it's so easy to reach the app and the noises it makes when I've tunes it right feels like a reward 😁 I especially love that they offer so many different instruments for free. I didn't think they'd help me tune my banjo for free, I'm so thankful!
I owe you this review
by Endless Nameless on 2017/08/10 23:22
I've had GuitarTuna for quite a long time and it's always been my go to tuning app. I was thumbing through the App Store and I thought, "there's GuitarTun. That's always been a great app. I should give them a review, because I have used it for quite a while. About three years ago, I was looking for an app that would tune my guitar, but this app has a LOT more, for the beginner and intermediate guitar player to get a more solid understanding about the guitar. I've never seen an update with glitches. It's always been perfect.
Trust me I’m not a robot

The free option is great for double checking your tuning to make sure you’re correct. Honestly making sure you are perfect before you play is key so you know you are playing the most accurate and best music you can play. As a country music player I play with a capo and sometimes a half step down. Either way having a perfect standard tune makes it 10 times easier to either adjust from there or just play for fun. Thank you guitar tuna you guys and gals are the best.
