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).

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!
Great app!

This app is wonderful! I love that it doesn’t just have one key and instrument! No need for a tuner anymore.
Love it!
by adremrats on 2019/05/19 22:05
It has everything I need. I can tune my bass, ukulele, guitar, and 12 string guitar all in one app! And I love the metronome as well!!
Do not download
by keodhqpsidbdod on 2019/05/19 19:40
This app literally broke my guitar string by saying “go higher”. And it was the strongest string. 😭🤬😡 I
Nice interface

by sam eye on 2019/05/18 14:33

Once was a great app...

Now you have to pay for a drop D tuning... no thanks. Adios Tuna!
Easy tune!

Works great even for a tuner dummy like me?
Won’t auto tune mandolin
by zachset78 on 2019/05/16 15:37
It’s a nice manual mode tuner for mandolin. You purchase pro. I’m in trial. Going to cancel because it can’t register or calculate the correct or corresponding strings in auto mode. Bummer!
Great for soprano ukelele

Easy to use
by Vegaschops on 2019/05/15 18:23
I love this app. After 13 years of not playing guitar after a traumatic brain injury I started playing again and this app made tuning my new guitar easy.

Great tunner thanks!
No complaints

Easy and accurate and always with me.
The price
by k.tirgar fakhery on 2019/05/15 14:26
What I’m gonna say is that this app is really brilliant and fantastic but you know for some countries like Iran is really hard to buy stuffs in the app so I suggest to make it free for countries like Iran
old school loving new tools
by Play Gtr on 2019/05/15 04:30
Awesome app!!! I’ve played guitar for over 30 years and was so surprised that this app is so effortless and easy to use and above all ACCURATE!! It’s a long way from tuning forks, pitch pipes and over priced seiko tuners. It is always good to have a good digital tuner but this is always so handy because everyone is keeping their phones close by. Great job!
Great App
by scrabbleguy2 on 2019/05/15 01:29
I would highly recommended this app! It has every thing you need for beginner to high intermediate. It has fun games to help you learn. The chord library is very helpful. Love this app and always use it.
Big Win

I love GuitarTuna it is the best app ever! I don’t have a guitar but I have a ukulele. I always use this to tune it! I will never use another tuning app again. I recommend getting this app!!
Good for easy tuning
by NMhiker7 on 2019/05/12 23:31
I’m new to guitar but I find this app makes tuning really easy. It has some extra things like games I haven’t used yet and they cost a fee. So I don’t know if I’ll try them or not.
Guitar tuna
by Jayoee j on 2019/05/12 20:53
GuitarTuna is horrible I was tuning my guitar and it said it was to low to I twisted it left and it made it more high but still not good so I twisted it one more time and the string on my guitar broke bc is said it was too low ... so now i have to get my string replaced
I love this app
by crayonboi0000000 on 2019/05/11 18:05
The fact that this app has even one bad review is abysmal
Guitar tuna 5 star ⭐️
by madeleine antley on 2019/05/11 16:11
Best tuner I’ve seen so far!
Great tuning app!
by :00000007 on 2019/05/11 13:15
Has to be the best app for tuning! So easy and so convenient! I 100% recommend this to beginners!
horrible
by Centralz on 2019/05/10 23:53
used this tuner before and it kind of worked but when I went to use it again I ended up breaking strings due to it constantly saying all my strings were too low
Great app love it
by Instinct4life on 2019/05/10 23:42
At first I thought it was gonna be like a lot of other tuner apps where you have to pay for it and it couldn’t even here your guitar but it wasn’t it was free and it could actually hear my guitar so happy totally would recommend it. My one problem and why it’s a four star is because you have to pay for alternate tunings and for other cords but otherwise great app love it.
My first 5!
by 3rdbeat on 2019/05/10 22:57
Excellent app!!! My other tuner app I’ve always used for this type of app wasn’t on my new phone when I upgraded, so I went into the App Store to find it and noticed this one was getting high reviews as “suggested apps”, so I checked it out🤷🏼‍♂️. The actual tuning is perfect, if not maybe better than my last app! The background could use some design 🤣, but the ability to swap instruments and stylings of tuning is on par!
friggin good app
by McFabuloso on 2019/05/10 19:32
very good quality app, uhh, I used it and tuned my guitar perfectly and to a nice tone, thank u bby

I needed to tune my guitar so I searched guitar tuner the GuitarTuna came and it’s the best

Amazing
Best tuner I’ve found.
by Saykiatric on 2019/05/08 16:59
Last two tuners I bought my son, one ended up in the bottom of the hot tub the other mysteriously vanished. This tuner sits on the phone and does not need its battery replaced nor will it vanish any time soon since as we know kids are glued to their light boxes.
Good Tuner
by Notdkdkdkdk on 2019/05/08 16:03
Perfectly functional tuner.
Meh
by vintagejesus on 2019/05/08 01:40
Perhaps I shouldn’t have to mute my system volume to get an accurate tuning without being interrupted by the constant “pa-dunk” every time the meter fluctuates being in tune. It works, but I would certainly never pay for it as this functionality has never changed for as long as I’ve used this.
Great!
by Elli945 on 2019/05/08 01:29
This was literally the first tuner I’d ever downloaded because I got it the day after I received my ukulele. I assumed it would be a normal tuner but once I opened it, it was very easy to use. It was simple and never tuned my ukulele wrong. 100% recommend this.
Sweet!
by Booyahkasha! on 2019/05/08 00:18
Great, easy to use tuner. Love it!
Great App!

Love the app, works great, but it is relentlessly asking me to rate it, calm down.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
by Fnfighrkgefhhfjehfsk on 2019/05/07 16:47
This app was sooooo helpful!!!!! It is so much easier to use than any other guitar app. And the tuning is spot on!!!!! I would highly recommend!!!!!!!!!😃😃😃😃😃😃 GET THIS APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WOULD PAY 500 DOLLARS FOR THIS TUNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Love it!

It’s excellent for tuning all my string instruments!
I learned quickly

This app is amazing I’m a beginner and this app taught me the basics in the first day. AWESOME APP
Gotta love it!
by Sir Spence-a-lot on 2019/05/06 18:53
This app is really easy to use and makes a satisfying clink when you hit the proper pitch.... the best part is the fact that’s it’s always with me as it’s on the phone and not a separate clip or machine that I have to keep track of. Worth the money!
Amazing

by Broketaco on 2019/05/06 14:26
As high school student in guitar this app is very useful for starting class. I can’t tune my guitar by ear so definitely speeds up the process. Overall, great app and would recommend for any new guitar players
This works I think
by Shgvkhfdciigss on 2019/05/06 08:20

I have two guitars and it works on Botha twelve string and six string, but also a bunch of other things, the tuning is on point, literally the best app in the App Store
AMAZING!!!
by Dewain the rock johson on 2019/05/05 20:01
This app really helps with tuning you interment I don’t know how well it works with other instruments, but it really works with a ukulele. So if you want to tune and learn to ply your instrument then you should get this app

This app works and works perfectly. I haven’t used any other tuner since I first downloaded it. I just paid for the full pro version, not because I need it, but just to support the developer.
Tried both auto and manual

Why do alternate tunings cost money?
by Noodleue on 2019/05/02 19:29
Tunes quite well in a quiet place. Although I do not understand why there is a charge for alternate tunings.
I Suggest You Use it

I’ve been playing guitar for many many years and have tuned my guitar by ear and a little closer using harmonics. My daughter is now taking lessons, so I practice with her quite a bit and this app is sooooo fast that we can tune up-be in tune together and concentrate more time on playing!!!! One of the best apps ever to download and use!!!

Guitar tuner is a good but not the best tuning app but it works and I give it a three star rating because sometimes it doesn’t show the correct tune but otherwise it is a good guitar tuning app.

Tune almost everything
by nomuse2 on 2019/04/26 22:42
It is a good ap in the free version. When I paid, though, it became a great ap. And unlike some garbage out there, paying once doesn’t just unlock more nag screens to unlock the rest of the ap. This is the other way around; you get unexpected treasures. I play (badly) ukulele, guitar, violin, trumpet, chincello...all of these pop up in the choices and lock right in to the pitches. Using the included Bandmate I have also tuned lyre, gue, penny whistle, and discovered my vocal range. The ergonomics are almost perfect for rehearsal/performance. My Audacity plugins react quicker and wiith more nuance to really dial in violin intonation, but the timing and feedback of the ap is exactly right for tuning the open strings. Only thing I wish is ability to add custom instruments...but I might be missing that option somewhere in the wealth.

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!!
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.
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!
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.

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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
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
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.
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 !!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Good for all strings but E
by SWAGMASTER NEWO on 2017/02/19 21:49
I use this weekly to tune my Ibanez GRX20, and sometimes my acoustic if I need it. In order for the music I'm playing so sound good, my guitar must be in tune perfectly. This app has done that, but left my E string out of tune and sounding horrible. The app itself just gives up on trying to tell how sharp or flat the E is, and frequently the pitch of the note would be seen wobbling tremendously on the tune diagram. Sometimes when I first play I get a "-4335" being flat, then it just randomly thins out to near in tune. Then it strikes up to "+335" being sharp. The accuracy for the E string is crap. As for the other notes, when I tune them the diagram centers them, and I get a green "+0" indicator in the middle of the in tune line. Absolutely perfect. That's for all the other notes except E. For E, if I get it somewhat in tune, the indicator with the + and - number dances between numbers below ten, both sharp and flat. The app itself can't perfectly tune my E, but it just aggravates me that a world renowned app known for guitar tuning can't properly tune one note. I guess the app is just really sensitive to the E string.
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!
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.
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!
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, 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.
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)
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
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!!
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!!!
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
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.
Love it! Love it! Love it! Love it!
by Bit Wayne on 2019/03/07 18:58
I love a lot of things but my guitar is my true one and only. This app needs no review. It does exactly what you would expect it to. Yet, It has helped me keep my guitar sounding pure and clean for years now and I wanted to take the time to talk about and praise it for a moment. I am able to tune standard by ear now but having this amazing app is what has made that a possibility for me. It also allows me quick access dadgad and other amazing tunings. I highly recommend it if you are an avid player.
Works Good but Remove to Improve
by aj81ds on 2018/12/21 00:16
I bought this for the tuner and metronome. I play in E & D Standard and this app works as described for both acoustic , electric guitar and bass. The only thing I don’t like is that the app does not rotate to Landscape mode. My iPad is in a permanent keyboard case so I prefer to use Landscape mode. As for the music lessons they are not useable for me. The software does not always pick up my notes when I pluck my bass strings with a pick. It happens at least 2-3 times every time I do a lesson so it’s not useable for me. I contacted support for this but they could not figure out why it happens. I am using an iPad Air 2, and an iRig Nano Amp Audio Interface.
I love it
by tottiebuf on 2018/09/15 18:01
I love this App when I got it I thought it was just some guitar tuner but it’s not this is an amazing app it truly has helped me grow in the world of music Especially with my guitar I love this app so so so much and I’m gonna use this app forever it’s amazing I would totally recommend this app for young musicians and beginners for the guitar this app has not only helped me learn the guitar but it has also helped me tune my guitar and learn all the chords and now I can play anything and everything fast or show it’s just amazing and I love it
Good app!
by SoccerDude103 on 2018/04/23 13:25
This app is a cheaper alternative than going to the store and buying a clip-on tuner. And you might not always be carrying around a clip-on, but you would most likely have your phone on you. This is a very good app, and I like the variety of instruments it can tune. Not only guitars, but violins, cellos (I think), ukuleles, and many more! I also like the metronome, which is also provided. There are many more features of this app I cannot because it would be very long, and not be viewed. Try it for yourself!
So useful
by Nathan250 on 2018/10/26 16:36
EXTREMELY easy to use and incredibly useful for beginner and even veteran guitarists and bassists. It tells you exactly how much to tune in what direction, and as you tune it the marker for how close you are to perfect pitch moves so you know how much more to move it. You can tune a 6 string guitar, 4 string bass, 5 string bass, ukulele, almost anything in that realm. You have to pay to unlock other tunings besides standard, but the prices are very reasonable and it's not a lot to ask for, especially after all you get for free.
What More Can You Ask For?
by Fuhdeuvnju on 2018/11/13 20:33
Like many others, I first downloaded this app with very low expectations. Boy was I blown away. The enthusiasm I’m showing at this moment is not fake either. If you need a simple standard tuning— this is as much as you could possibly hope for. I’m a Scrooge myself when it comes to paying for apps, but I might purchase the entire service. Only thing is there are “packages” which is frustrating. Otherwise, amazing quality content.
FINALLY
by Firestone360 on 2017/06/21 23:06
so I just got a new ukulele. And the app it recommended didn't work. So I got a new app that worked. But my chords sounded bad. I found I out I was tuning to the wrong notes! I was supposed to be tuning to GCEA and not C tuning. It only had C tuning. So I downloaded other apps, but none of them worked. Then Then I found this app. I CAN FINALLY TUNE CORRECTLY!! Plus it has a manual mode so you can just click the note that you want to tune to. All the others only let my A string tune to G. Thank you for being a great app!!!!
GuitarTuna
by ukulelemann on 2018/04/01 02:35
I honestly love this app. I personally use this app for tuning my ukulele and it makes tuning so much quicker and easier. For me I always wanted to have music as a hobby but things like chords and tuning were so hard and took a ton of time that by the time I learned everything I was bored out of my mind. But with GuitarTuna it takes me two seconds to tune and it’s even faster to find a chord I may not remember. Thanks you so much to the makers of this app for making music so enjoyable!!
Very supportive

No matter how out of tune your guitar, play a note and this tuner will give you an A-Okay, thumbs up, "sounds great." Really solid for self-esteem. Not so great for keeping a guitar in tune. I wish I could have this app as my wingman. Would always tell me I look great, but would never tell me I have something in my teeth. The past few times I have used it, I have checked its tuning against that of a higher quality tuner, and the difference has been huge. Strings tuned a quarter tone sharp and flat, everything sounding jagged and dissonant. It usually gets me close enough to sound in tune, but lately it has given me immediate "check, in tune" noises for every string. It's like it's going through a phase where it doesn't want me to use it and just wants me to get off the app as soon as possible. When I tune with another tuner, and go back to the app to check its results, everything is, again, "all in tune." When my guitar is out of tune, and other tuners (and my ears agree) this tuner says "all in tune."
For anyone to use

So I’ve been using this app for about 9 months and it’s been amazing at first I was using this app to tune my guitar and I was so happy with it but then I was off school so I didn’t have a tuner to tune my Cello so I came on the App Store to see what tuning apps there are for one and then this came up and I was surprised I thought it was only for guitar but with enough exploring I found the feature and it’s never been easier to tune my instruments Thank you for this app -Andrew
Great tuner
by Frankwinn on 2017/03/16 20:16
I'm the type of person who doesn't write reviews for pretty much anything, but this tuner is awesome! I recently restrung an old ukulele to lefty and it was amazing how the tuner was able to pick up the loose strings tunes. I used a physical tuner which kept the strings in tune but did not know that the strings were loose and extremely out of tune. Other tuning apps for the ukulele only had the right tone instead of letting you know how far off you are from the proper notes.

I worked as a precessional writer for 38 years, traveled the world and experienced more than my share of awe inspiring moments, but I can't feel I've lived a complete life without learning how to play guitar. So, at age 64, I bought one. The first step to playing is tuning the guitar and this app made that so easy I thought I was doing something wrong. Huge boost of confidence hearing a perfectly tuned instrument and knowing I did that. Looking forward to discovering the full scope of GuitarTuna as I go searching for my inner troubadour.

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!
Great app!
by syntax888 on 2019/05/20 11:07
This app is wonderful! I love that it doesn’t just have one key and instrument! No need for a tuner anymore.
Love it!
by adremrats on 2019/05/19 22:05
It has everything I need. I can tune my bass, ukulele, guitar, and 12 string guitar all in one app! And I love the metronome as well!!

Won’t auto tune mandolin
by zachset78 on 2019/05/16 15:37
It’s a nice manual mode tuner for mandolin. You purchase pro. I’m in trial. Going to cancel because it can’t register or calculate the correct or corresponding strings in auto mode. Bummer!
Great for soprano ukelele

I love this app. After 13 years of not playing guitar after a traumatic brain injury I started playing again and this app made tuning my new guitar easy.

The price
by k.tirgar fakhery on 2019/05/15 14:26
What I’m gonna say is that this app is really brilliant and fantastic but you know for some countries like Iran is really hard to buy stuffs in the app so I suggest to make it free for countries like Iran
old school loving new tools
by Play Gtr on 2019/05/15 04:30
Awesome app!!! I’ve played guitar for over 30 years and was so surprised that this app is so effortless and easy to use and above all ACCURATE!! It’s a long way from tuning forks, pitch pipes and over priced seiko tuners. It is always good to have a good digital tuner but this is always so handy because everyone is keeping their phones close by. Great job!
Great App
by scrabbleguy2 on 2019/05/15 01:29
I would highly recommended this app! It has every thing you need for beginner to high intermediate. It has fun games to help you learn. The chord library is very helpful. Love this app and always use it.

I love GuitarTuna it is the best app ever! I don’t have a guitar but I have a ukulele. I always use this to tune it! I will never use another tuning app again. I recommend getting this app!!
Good for easy tuning
by NMhiker7 on 2019/05/12 23:31
I’m new to guitar but I find this app makes tuning really easy. It has some extra things like games I haven’t used yet and they cost a fee. So I don’t know if I’ll try them or not.
Guitar tuna
by Jayoee j on 2019/05/12 20:53
GuitarTuna is horrible I was tuning my guitar and it said it was to low to I twisted it left and it made it more high but still not good so I twisted it one more time and the string on my guitar broke bc is said it was too low ... so now i have to get my string replaced
I love this app
by crayonboi0000000 on 2019/05/11 18:05
The fact that this app has even one bad review is abysmal

Has to be the best app for tuning! So easy and so convenient! I 100% recommend this to beginners!
horrible
by Centralz on 2019/05/10 23:53
used this tuner before and it kind of worked but when I went to use it again I ended up breaking strings due to it constantly saying all my strings were too low
Great app love it
by Instinct4life on 2019/05/10 23:42
At first I thought it was gonna be like a lot of other tuner apps where you have to pay for it and it couldn’t even here your guitar but it wasn’t it was free and it could actually hear my guitar so happy totally would recommend it. My one problem and why it’s a four star is because you have to pay for alternate tunings and for other cords but otherwise great app love it.
My first 5!
by 3rdbeat on 2019/05/10 22:57
Excellent app!!! My other tuner app I’ve always used for this type of app wasn’t on my new phone when I upgraded, so I went into the App Store to find it and noticed this one was getting high reviews as “suggested apps”, so I checked it out🤷🏼‍♂️. The actual tuning is perfect, if not maybe better than my last app! The background could use some design 🤣, but the ability to swap instruments and stylings of tuning is on par!
friggin good app

Best tuner I’ve found.
by Saykiatric on 2019/05/08 16:59
Last two tuners I bought my son, one ended up in the bottom of the hot tub the other mysteriously vanished. This tuner sits on the phone and does not need its battery replaced nor will it vanish any time soon since as we know kids are glued to their light boxes.
Good Tuner
by Notdkdkdkdk on 2019/05/08 16:03
Perfectly functional tuner.
Meh
by vintagejesus on 2019/05/08 01:40
Perhaps I shouldn’t have to mute my system volume to get an accurate tuning without being interrupted by the constant “pa-dunk” every time the meter fluctuates being in tune. It works, but I would certainly never pay for it as this functionality has never changed for as long as I’ve used this.
Great!
by Elli945 on 2019/05/08 01:29
This was literally the first tuner I’d ever downloaded because I got it the day after I received my ukulele. I assumed it would be a normal tuner but once I opened it, it was very easy to use. It was simple and never tuned my ukulele wrong. 100% recommend this.
Sweet!
by Booyahkasha! on 2019/05/08 00:18
Great, easy to use tuner. Love it!
Great App!

Love the app, works great, but it is relentlessly asking me to rate it, calm down.
AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This app was sooooo helpful!!!!! It is so much easier to use than any other guitar app. And the tuning is spot on!!!!! I would highly recommend!!!!!!!!!😃😃😃😃😃😃 GET THIS APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I WOULD PAY 500 DOLLARS FOR THIS TUNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gotta love it!
by Sir Spence-a-lot on 2019/05/06 18:53
This app is really easy to use and makes a satisfying clink when you hit the proper pitch.... the best part is the fact that’s it’s always with me as it’s on the phone and not a separate clip or machine that I have to keep track of. Worth the money!
Amazing

This works I think

AMAZING!!!
by Dewain the rock johson on 2019/05/05 20:01
This app really helps with tuning you interment I don’t know how well it works with other instruments, but it really works with a ukulele. So if you want to tune and learn to ply your instrument then you should get this app

Guitar tuner is a good but not the best tuning app but it works and I give it a three star rating because sometimes it doesn’t show the correct tune but otherwise it is a good guitar tuning app.

Tune almost everything
by nomuse2 on 2019/04/26 22:42
It is a good ap in the free version. When I paid, though, it became a great ap. And unlike some garbage out there, paying once doesn’t just unlock more nag screens to unlock the rest of the ap. This is the other way around; you get unexpected treasures. I play (badly) ukulele, guitar, violin, trumpet, chincello...all of these pop up in the choices and lock right in to the pitches. Using the included Bandmate I have also tuned lyre, gue, penny whistle, and discovered my vocal range. The ergonomics are almost perfect for rehearsal/performance. My Audacity plugins react quicker and wiith more nuance to really dial in violin intonation, but the timing and feedback of the ap is exactly right for tuning the open strings. Only thing I wish is ability to add custom instruments...but I might be missing that option somewhere in the wealth.

I like tuning my ukulele
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!!

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!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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!
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!
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
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.
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 !!!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Good for all strings but E
by SWAGMASTER NEWO on 2017/02/19 21:49
I use this weekly to tune my Ibanez GRX20, and sometimes my acoustic if I need it. In order for the music I'm playing so sound good, my guitar must be in tune perfectly. This app has done that, but left my E string out of tune and sounding horrible. The app itself just gives up on trying to tell how sharp or flat the E is, and frequently the pitch of the note would be seen wobbling tremendously on the tune diagram. Sometimes when I first play I get a "-4335" being flat, then it just randomly thins out to near in tune. Then it strikes up to "+335" being sharp. The accuracy for the E string is crap. As for the other notes, when I tune them the diagram centers them, and I get a green "+0" indicator in the middle of the in tune line. Absolutely perfect. That's for all the other notes except E. For E, if I get it somewhat in tune, the indicator with the + and - number dances between numbers below ten, both sharp and flat. The app itself can't perfectly tune my E, but it just aggravates me that a world renowned app known for guitar tuning can't properly tune one note. I guess the app is just really sensitive to the E string.
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!
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.
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!
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, 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.
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)
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
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!!
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!!!
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
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.
Love it! Love it! Love it! Love it!
by Bit Wayne on 2019/03/07 18:58
I love a lot of things but my guitar is my true one and only. This app needs no review. It does exactly what you would expect it to. Yet, It has helped me keep my guitar sounding pure and clean for years now and I wanted to take the time to talk about and praise it for a moment. I am able to tune standard by ear now but having this amazing app is what has made that a possibility for me. It also allows me quick access dadgad and other amazing tunings. I highly recommend it if you are an avid player.
Works Good but Remove to Improve

I bought this for the tuner and metronome. I play in E & D Standard and this app works as described for both acoustic , electric guitar and bass. The only thing I don’t like is that the app does not rotate to Landscape mode. My iPad is in a permanent keyboard case so I prefer to use Landscape mode. As for the music lessons they are not useable for me. The software does not always pick up my notes when I pluck my bass strings with a pick. It happens at least 2-3 times every time I do a lesson so it’s not useable for me. I contacted support for this but they could not figure out why it happens. I am using an iPad Air 2, and an iRig Nano Amp Audio Interface.
I love it

Good app!

This app is a cheaper alternative than going to the store and buying a clip-on tuner. And you might not always be carrying around a clip-on, but you would most likely have your phone on you. This is a very good app, and I like the variety of instruments it can tune. Not only guitars, but violins, cellos (I think), ukuleles, and many more! I also like the metronome, which is also provided. There are many more features of this app I cannot because it would be very long, and not be viewed. Try it for yourself!
So useful
by Nathan250 on 2018/10/26 16:36
EXTREMELY easy to use and incredibly useful for beginner and even veteran guitarists and bassists. It tells you exactly how much to tune in what direction, and as you tune it the marker for how close you are to perfect pitch moves so you know how much more to move it. You can tune a 6 string guitar, 4 string bass, 5 string bass, ukulele, almost anything in that realm. You have to pay to unlock other tunings besides standard, but the prices are very reasonable and it's not a lot to ask for, especially after all you get for free.
What More Can You Ask For?

Like many others, I first downloaded this app with very low expectations. Boy was I blown away. The enthusiasm I’m showing at this moment is not fake either. If you need a simple standard tuning— this is as much as you could possibly hope for. I’m a Scrooge myself when it comes to paying for apps, but I might purchase the entire service. Only thing is there are “packages” which is frustrating. Otherwise, amazing quality content.
FINALLY

so I just got a new ukulele. And the app it recommended didn't work. So I got a new app that worked. But my chords sounded bad. I found I out I was tuning to the wrong notes! I was supposed to be tuning to GCEA and not C tuning. It only had C tuning. So I downloaded other apps, but none of them worked. Then Then I found this app. I CAN FINALLY TUNE CORRECTLY!! Plus it has a manual mode so you can just click the note that you want to tune to. All the others only let my A string tune to G. Thank you for being a great app!!!!
GuitarTuna

I honestly love this app. I personally use this app for tuning my ukulele and it makes tuning so much quicker and easier. For me I always wanted to have music as a hobby but things like chords and tuning were so hard and took a ton of time that by the time I learned everything I was bored out of my mind. But with GuitarTuna it takes me two seconds to tune and it’s even faster to find a chord I may not remember. Thanks you so much to the makers of this app for making music so enjoyable!!
Very supportive

No matter how out of tune your guitar, play a note and this tuner will give you an A-Okay, thumbs up, "sounds great." Really solid for self-esteem. Not so great for keeping a guitar in tune. I wish I could have this app as my wingman. Would always tell me I look great, but would never tell me I have something in my teeth. The past few times I have used it, I have checked its tuning against that of a higher quality tuner, and the difference has been huge. Strings tuned a quarter tone sharp and flat, everything sounding jagged and dissonant. It usually gets me close enough to sound in tune, but lately it has given me immediate "check, in tune" noises for every string. It's like it's going through a phase where it doesn't want me to use it and just wants me to get off the app as soon as possible. When I tune with another tuner, and go back to the app to check its results, everything is, again, "all in tune." When my guitar is out of tune, and other tuners (and my ears agree) this tuner says "all in tune."
For anyone to use

So I’ve been using this app for about 9 months and it’s been amazing at first I was using this app to tune my guitar and I was so happy with it but then I was off school so I didn’t have a tuner to tune my Cello so I came on the App Store to see what tuning apps there are for one and then this came up and I was surprised I thought it was only for guitar but with enough exploring I found the feature and it’s never been easier to tune my instruments Thank you for this app -Andrew
Great tuner
by Frankwinn on 2017/03/16 20:16
I'm the type of person who doesn't write reviews for pretty much anything, but this tuner is awesome! I recently restrung an old ukulele to lefty and it was amazing how the tuner was able to pick up the loose strings tunes. I used a physical tuner which kept the strings in tune but did not know that the strings were loose and extremely out of tune. Other tuning apps for the ukulele only had the right tone instead of letting you know how far off you are from the proper notes.

I worked as a precessional writer for 38 years, traveled the world and experienced more than my share of awe inspiring moments, but I can't feel I've lived a complete life without learning how to play guitar. So, at age 64, I bought one. The first step to playing is tuning the guitar and this app made that so easy I thought I was doing something wrong. Huge boost of confidence hearing a perfectly tuned instrument and knowing I did that. Looking forward to discovering the full scope of GuitarTuna as I go searching for my inner troubadour.
