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.

Any unused portion of a free trial period will be forfeited when the user purchases a subscription. GuitarTuna is developed by Yousician. Check out the app to learn and master guitar, ukulele, bass, piano or singing! It’s pretty cool you actually read this far! Here’s a joke for you: What’s the difference between a bass and a tuna? You can tuna bass, but you can’t bass a tuna. Now download the app and see how it is. Send us your feedback of the joke and the app to support@guitartuna.com! https://yousician.com/privacy-notice https://yousician.com/terms-of-service

I’m so happy to have guitar tuna it is so helpful I have ukulele classes and my teacher told me to get this I am to happy I listened to him
4.99 a month for the pro version?
by DavidSTvz on 2021/04/13 15:27
Really. A recurring cost for a guitar tuner. I’m uninstalling this junk and going to get something else.
does what it’s supposed to do

How I found this app
by howie ostrander on 2021/04/09 00:50
So one day I was looking all over YouTube on how to play guitar I started to look and look and look and then one of them said that there are even apps that help you turn your guitar so I got on looked at it for a little and it worked so THANK YOU!!!!
This app gave me more than I even asked for and it’s great
by hbfuisnejdc on 2021/04/08 17:48
All I needed was an easy to use guitar tuner that works well and this app gave me that and much more! It is so simple to use and works perfectly! It even can teach you cords and has little “mini games” to teach you a bit more about how to play it. This app is the best guitar tuner I have ever used. LOVE IT
Now I have to pay again?
by Brainspoon on 2021/04/07 04:39
I have really enjoyed this tuner, and paid for it to get access to all the instruments and tunings. Now suddenly alternate tunings are shut off unless I pay a monthly subscription, which is too high. Not cool.
Easy
by Rick813p55 on 2021/04/06 21:13
Helps me tune fast and easy
Why
by goo gaa kai on 2021/04/06 19:07
I like how good it is at tuning but I have two instruments and it’s tiring to keep deleting and uploading so make that change please
THIS APP IS LEGENDARY
by TheLegendaryOne01 on 2021/04/06 17:58
I really like this app because it’s accurate, it doesn’t force you to subscribe, and it tunes my guitar very well. I recommend this app for anyone who plays guitar, ukulele, and other instruments.
5 STAR APP LONGGG
by cousins 8 on yt on 2021/04/06 15:01
This app really helps to get my guitar to sound like a guitar and not a little...thingy that doesn’t sound like a guitar
Very great and easy to use
by Fredy383 on 2021/04/05 04:27
Right as I open up the app it has the tuner ready no crazy extra stuff , definitely recommend if you play guitar everyday. Additionally it has a list of chords that include sound and finger placement 10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
5 dollars a month?
by tubeMP on 2021/04/05 01:05
To use a tuner? On your phone non the less? Pretty predatory practice if you ask me. It’s ok if you only ever want to play in standard tuning
Ohhhh this the app right here homey

Very annoying!
by Gaurav Biswas on 2021/03/31 12:16
This is very stupid.Manual mode is the most annoying and why can’t we do the custom for free?You can just put adds.If you do all these fixes,I will rate you 6-star +.
Awesome
by aniscore on 2021/03/31 04:07
I have been using it since 2009 and I don’t use any other guitar tuner.

by danielforrest869 on 2021/03/29 22:43
seriously why do i have to pay for drop d?
Good but has a few issues
by The Dark Prince" on 2021/03/28 14:53
If your guitar is out of tune, sometimes it changes it to another string. When your trying to get a E it gives you a B. Otherwise it is amazing and better than all other guitar tuners.
not properly work
by Sanket6780 on 2021/03/28 06:54
I installed this app on my ios phone, very regret to inform its not working properly. strings recognize not properly during running time. if your r playing E app recognize A.
Best free app ever.
by TheKingOfFuzz on 2021/03/27 16:40
Get serious: it’s one of the only things in the world that does what it says on the tin. Five stars, today.

Custom tuning limit?
by JJT73 on 2021/03/20 18:13
Why are custom tunings limited to three? This is absurd. Given the storage capabilities of the device, and the fact this app is just reading saved data,I should be able to create, store, and read as many custom tunings as I want. Yet, it is limited to three. This is where I have to question the knowledge about guitars by the app creators. There are more than just three custom tunings available to the instrument, ya know? Great app otherwise, but even after having this app for YEARS, this silly limitation has never been addressed. Hence my 2 star rating. Address this please. It is beyond silly! Take it from me; also an app developer. There is very little in the way of a technical limitation that justifies this very poor design decision.
It’s easy to use
by jezebel Jamison on 2021/03/13 02:26
😊I got my guitar and then I figured out that it wasn’t tuned so I found GuitarTuna and then I tried it out and I think it worked so well I’ve been practicing every night making sure that my guitar is tuned so I try to use this app as often as possible because it helps me when I think my guitar is out of tune it also works for ukuleles and other instruments😊
Nice app!
by ♥︎🄺🄰🅃🅂♥︎ on 2021/03/12 20:00
I use this every time before my music class. I think it works great for a normal guitar (that’s all I've ever tried, guitar and ukulele). But... maybe it’s just me or my cheap ukelele... because I tried to use it for a ukelele and it worked horribly. But on the good side... it has settings were you can tune different things.
It’s legit
by bsbhsbahs on 2021/03/12 01:48
It works
Tuner stuck loading
by Does this count as a nickname on 2021/03/11 22:47
Never had a problem with the app until today. I opened it and in the main tuning section there was just a loading icon. I couldn’t click the strings to hear the right tune nor would it hear my guitar strings and measure if they are out of tune
A great help
by Cookielover9000 on 2021/03/10 14:58
A great help in guitar class, I really like it. It’s easy to use and accurate.
Don’t use it
by guitar_maniac_101 on 2021/03/09 21:13
I downloaded the app thinking that it’s gonna be a good guitar tuner but I was wrong see a download it it started tuning my guitar and on the Estring it was telling me that it was too loose when it sounds good but I was like maybe it’s me so I started tuning more kept saying it was still too loose and boom the string snapped and that happened twice with two of my guitars with BRAND NEW STRINGS and I’ve been playing guitar for a while and I know I’m not doing it wrong so take my advice and DONT USE IT or you’ll be spending money on lots of strings
This app is amazing
by iejems on 2021/03/09 20:41
Love the app it makes tuning a breeze helps so much when I need to tune for a lesson because I can bring this with me so easy
Love it
by sloth juices. on 2021/03/07 16:37
It works very well
Good if you only want standard tuning
by Awesomegoose420 on 2021/03/06 19:52
Works great for standard tuning no complaints there but how come there’s no setting for open G or F tuning that would make a good addition
Horrible

WHY IS EVERYTHING A SUBSCRIPTION
by GZjirjf on 2021/03/05 22:46
I would just like to purchase the tuner i want like you used to be able to. no one should pay a subscription fee for a GUITAR TUNER.
Amazing
by Camren H on 2021/03/05 20:02
This is one of the best guitar tuners out there in my opinion! Congrats to the makers of this app. I used it to tune my guitar and it worked AMAZING 🤩.
Indispensable
by Galvatron(Megatron) on 2021/03/05 15:29

AMAZING APP- Charlotte

I’ve been looking for a tuner app for my ukulele, it’s so hard! Then I was scrolling through the options, and this came up, I loooed at the pictures, and it was so cool! I take lessons and my. Teacher always says it’s so in tune, and I say, I used this ap called “Guitar Tuna” your the best!
Love it
by maya music on 2021/03/04 20:14
I use it all the time! I’m in love.. it tunes my guitar perfectly and for free. Definitely recommend!! 🥰
This app is awesome! I’m able to even tune into a different key change. Best app ever!
by the blob sos on 2021/03/04 17:17
I recommend this app for everyone. It will get your guitar in tune I about 30 seconds.
Great! But......
by ooh gah boo gah on 2021/03/03 23:05
This app is SO amazing! It has everything! But....... I wish GuitarTuna Pro was free instead of having to pay for it. I love EVERYTHING about it except for GuitarTuna Pro. If the makers could maybe lower the price, this app would be my FAVORITE tuning app ever! Thanks for the geniuses who made this! I repeat: you guys are GENIUSES!!!!!!!!! There’s even a tuner for a 12 string aucostic guitar! I mean how CRAZY is that!?!

Great App You Should Try It
by Savvy Paige W on 2021/03/02 16:57
I downloaded this app to tune my ukulele and it really works! And it also has all different types of things to help you learn. You don’t just have to use it for one instrument either. You can use it for all string instruments. It’s really great no matter what though. 5 stars from me!
Great app
by AllOnline on 2021/02/27 05:59
Very useful for the beginner guitar player!! Love it and it just works.
I mean I haven’t had problems lol
by hejgcuvshva on 2021/02/27 04:21
It’s pretty good I use this app for both my ukelele and my guitar I don’t mind the only standard tuning option cause that’s what I use most of the time anyway maybe it’s cause I’m a beginner but whatever. It’s pretty good I haven’t had any problems and it’s easy to use if I had the money I’d pay for the games it has!☺️
Awesome, thank you👍👍👍
by GarryIStheBest on 2021/02/26 00:08

I love this tuner! But a question..
by eg egberbeg y u u on 2021/02/23 19:57
Do you all have any plans of adding integration for shortcuts with siri ex: “Siri, tune my guitar”?
AMAZING
by iluvdisgame53 on 2021/02/22 22:28
I love this app I just started to play guitar and this helped so much for tuning it’s easy and quick and I highly recommend this!
LOVE IT!
by ImaElf on 2021/02/22 22:10
I love the app. It has never failed me while tuning. I’m just having an issue currently. The app won’t open. It sits at the loading screen and that’s all. I tried to report it on the website but had no luck.
It’s aight but...
by 6Pen6Cap6Chew on 2021/02/21 23:18
The only free thing is the tuner and some chords , you gotta pay for tab and video tutorials AND to do other tunings other than standard, so you get a free tuner and that’s about it
Just allow alternate tunings please?
by alexb00b on 2021/02/21 01:03
It’s not that hard.
This app is AMAZING!!
by Belle, Philadelphia, 12345 on 2021/02/20 12:02
So incredibly user friendly. I can finally tune my own guitar!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Good tuner
by jrifbjjrjidn on 2021/02/18 21:35
This tuner is amazing I have had no trouble with the tuner honestly even the premium price is not bad
Remove the headstock picture
by Prophettttttt on 2021/02/18 20:45
This app works great. But, it would be so much better and visibly pleasing to have the option for the tuner full screen and remove the headstock picture that takes up so much room.
Awesome!
by KingKongorama on 2021/02/18 16:09
Me and every musician in my family love this app it is so helpful especially for tuning I def recommend
awesome!!
by Cool from Colorado on 2021/02/18 15:24
Was just using this app at first to tune my ukulele. my tuner was out of batteries and i needed something to use quickly. did not think it would the most accurate, but it actually tuned it almost perfectly! aside from that, it also has a whole collection of chords and a metronome. it helped me learn the ukulele AND guitar by myself. and this is all WITHOUT the pro version!! very few ads (if any). would def recommend!!

How easy it is to navigate
by Darnell Christion on 2021/02/18 00:37
Not knowing how easy it was to understand how it works
Great!!
by Henry Cora on 2021/02/16 18:04
I downloaded the app just for tuning but it is more than just for tuning you and can use it to play guitar games and more if you re starting to learn the guitar then you should definitely download GuitarTuna
Perfect
by Blueboy777 on 2021/02/16 00:11
I have used other apps and none of them work as good as this one. GuitarTuna is by far the best one out there. Easy to see if you’re too high or too low. Makes putting in new strings a piece of cake!
String snapped
by 5852236314 on 2021/02/15 00:35
I was tuning my guitar because I had just learned how to play. When I was tuning low e string it told me to tighten it more so I did then the next thing I knew one of my guitar strings was snapped. It still said -29 when it snapped. I would not recommend this app.
awesome
by mrr 11 on 2021/02/14 04:28
this app was relatively easy to use and i was able to tune my ukulele in about ten minutes 10/10 recommended
5 stars
by gootchytpoch on 2021/02/13 15:34
It is a good app! tunes very well and it is very helpful!
Ok but pricey
by oroblrem on 2021/02/13 01:12
$5 a month seems pretty pricey to me. You can buy any number of tuners online for under $30. Worked good on my 6-string and the problems I had with my 12-string were my fault for not better muting the companion string. The mandolin on the other hand was not as effective, telling me that strings that I knew to be very close to tune were way out. I ended up tuning with my guitar and when it was right on I tried the app again, and it agreed with me. I hope it works out for the developers so the app stays around because it is real comforting to know I can always resubscribe if I’m willing to pay $5. Sometimes it’s worth it.
Good and easy to use
by Thebeast06 on 2021/02/12 21:33
Highly recommend for beginners.

Please, if you have had trouble finding a good tuner, get an amazing FREE tuner! This is the best tuner I’ve used in my 12+ years in guitar!
Fantastic- better than my other tuners
by dinonuggets217 on 2021/02/08 15:26
I love this app so much, its gotten to the point where I don’t even use my actual electronic tuners anymore because this is so much easier. I was shocked when my friend told me about it, and that it was free. I thought there was no way it could be that good if it was a free app, but I honestly stand by it and recommend it to anyone I know either starting out on guitar, or even my experienced friends. It’s so much more convenient, plus the chord lists are great for people just starting out or needing a refresher.
Best tuner
by Noh J on 2021/02/07 20:22
I downloaded this tuner not expecting much, but the free version worked great and helped me tune out my guitar. Great app.
Good
by happy fish 11/07/2009 on 2021/02/06 23:57
So a friend of mine finds out that I am learning guitar, and since he plays the guitar himself, he showed me GuitarTuna. The tuning is pretty good, not amazing, but good. the games are extremely helpful, and they have taught me several new cords. And that’s all 🤷🏻‍♂️. I will continue to use this app every time I pull out the guitar. I would recommend this app to any guitar enthusiast, young or old, near and far, no matter how much experience you have on any instrument.
Awesome!!
by Yolga_ca on 2021/02/06 22:42
Downloaded this app an year ago, using very often. So easy to navigate, tune guitar very fast, it takes a minute! Thank you!

It’s so easy to tune your instrument. I have been tuning my ukulele and it’s very easy. This helps me tune my ukulele much more faster.

by bfjxiskdnxjd on 2021/02/05 14:02
I just started playing guitar this year and this is the best app that I’ve found to help tune my guitar. This app is so so soooo easy to use and it’s the most accurate and FREE app I’ve used so far. I’ll never use any other app than this, tuning my guitar is so much fast now!! 11/10 would DEFINITELY recommend!!!
Great app
by Mrbrentbt on 2021/02/05 06:31

Very Useful!
by Drum_King M-Man on 2021/02/04 20:32
I’ve used this app for a few years without a hitch, but recently I thought I would try others just out of curiosity. Well it didn’t take long before deleting those and returning back to Guitar Tuna. As a semi-professional musician, songwriter/lyricist, it’s the only app that gets the job done! It’s all you’ll ever need!
Great

Standard tuning
by KingChubby4698 on 2021/02/04 02:10
I used to use this app all the time, up until they added a pay wall in an update. The fact that you can only use standard tuning with this without paying says enough.
DONT DOWNLOAD
by Lil cold hard waffle on 2021/02/02 01:03
I tried this app to tune my dads gutair and it kept saying higher and it made two of my strings break. DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK!
A great companion
by Stan801 on 2021/02/01 20:32
This app is great for anyone who aspires to play guitar. I taught myself to play, but I needed an app to help me keep my guitar in tune. When I downloaded this app, I expected another trial-and-pay-after-three-days type of app. Thankfully, I was wrong. There are in-app purchases, but they don’t ruin the experience the app brings. It can help tune many different instruments and different variants of instruments, and it can help you learn different cords and such. It has been a great companion for me and acoustic.

They put most tuning behind a paywall
by Cluttered1998 on 2021/02/01 00:59
You can’t access custom tuning, meaning picking a pitch and tuning to it, without paying. What is this?
Amazing app

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

The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.
I love this app!
by Alyssa P. J. on 2018/06/07 06:38
This app has been amazing! Before I get into detail, this app has helped me learn so much, and I’m so glad I downloaded it. It has been the easiest way for me to learn chords. I first downloaded this app when I began playing guitar, to help keep it in tune. As I became more familiar with the app and my guitar, I started using the “learn to play chords” feature. When I was ready to learn new chords I purchased the full version. One of the best purchases I could’ve made. All of the features expand for the guitar. But, not all of the features expand for the ukulele. This is pretty disappointing. This app has been a foundation for me learning to play and I really wish they had the “learn to play chords” feature for the uke. Hopefully the developers are working on this! Honestly if you’re newer (or even experienced) to playing and are looking for an app to help you get your instrument in tune and learn new chords I’d recommend this app.
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
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.
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, but with a couple annoying quirks
by katieyouoldfool on 2019/07/31 08:05
Before anything else, let me say this app is still 100% worth getting and I use it pretty much every day. It’s not just a tuner, it’s everything you need when practicing on your own. BUT there are a couple minor problems that got pretty annoying the more I used the app. The chord library interface is really bad. I love that they have so many chords and alternate fingerings, but really I wish there was just a button for each chord, instead of having to slowly scroll a dial through every note and variation to find the one I need. Also, I think the tuning calibration might be off. In settings, it says it’s automatically calibrated to to 440hz. But, whenever I play something already tuned properly to 440, like a digital keyboard, it reads as a 2-3 semitones too high. I’ve tried this with multiple instruments and used the app on several different devices and it happens every time. You can easily get around this by just changing the calibration to 443hz in settings, but it’s something to keep in mind, especially if you play in a group with other people. Again, I still recommend this app, flaws and all. There are just a couple things I’d love to see improved in future updates.
Works very well
by SevinStorey on 2018/04/09 03:11
As a young boy (in my early 20’s) I picked up my first hand me down flat top and bought a chord chart poster from Walmart and self taught myself how to strum chords enough to eventually start playing parties and small bars. I never did learn how to tune however but I can definitely tell when she’s out. I would always have to ask a friend or count on a small tuner that was easy to misplace or lose but now I can do it on my phone which I always have in my pocket and its extremely accurate as I’ve checked it on tuners and with class act guitar players including myself. There’s no bothersome pop ups (thank God) and it never asks me to buy anything,(again thank God) or I would drop it from my phone. Great deal for anybody out there.
great for learning the basics but...
by smhgamergal on 2019/06/29 14:00
It only gets 3 stars because they need to add a feature where you can play the chord practice games without a timer, Because it gets really annoying to have to keep restarting the game if you are a novice trying to learn the chords and can only get a couple before you have to stop and pickup your phone to restart the lesson. I was so stoked to see there was a feature that would teach you the chords and pick up if you were playing them correctly through the microphone and I paid for the full app only to find out how ridiculously obnoxious it is to have to restart every 45 seconds. seriously you need to add a feature where you can just play the games with no timer or with a custom timer. it's messed up the way it is now where you can only play each game for 45 seconds at a time.
Great for tuning, but!!
by A new soul on 2020/07/23 04:04
this is a great tuning app, but there is one major problem, it is not very accessible for those of us who are blind. I somehow keep losing the automatic tuner, then I have to uninstall it or find someone to put it back for me. Also, I can’t take advantage of the other things in the app and I have a subscription. I was trying to use the free tuner, but it didn’t work out so I thought I would get a subscription and it would be better. It isn’t!! yes the tuner works for when I tune my guitar in standard tuning, and I like the fact that it has the tone to let me know it’s in tune. I keep seeing all the things that the subscription provides and I can’t use any of that! this is the closest thing I can get to an electronic tuner, I really really hope you guys will make it better for those of us who have to use voiceover and other screen readers.
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.
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
sick!
by yum~yum🗿 on 2019/05/30 23:17
i got this app when i FIRST started playing guitar and it did its job well, taught me all my major chords and tuned my guitar pretty well, but as i progressed (learned everything the app had to offer) i realized i needed everything else the app had to offer so i purchased the pro version and its 10x more useful. Basically what im trying to say is this app is great for beginners (beginner myself) but you definitely need the pro version if you’re really gonna take guitar seriously and use it on a day to day basis to teach yourself guitar and progress, unless you’re going for in person lessons with a teacher of course. If you're not going for in person lessons don't worry this app will take care of you.
More than just a tuner
by rainbow chords on 2019/07/31 22:00
I downloaded this app cause I didn’t have a guitar tuner and I didn’t want to buy one if I didn’t have to. So I downloaded this app thinking it was just a tuner, and only using it as a tuner for a few weeks. But one day I was trying to learn a song on guitar and I didn’t know one of the chords, so I was looking through apps but all of the good ones had you do the subscription and pay and whatnot, then I tried looking it up but it didn’t help, so I gave up basically. Then I was experimenting around with this app, seeing what else it had, and then I found it! Under games I found a learn chords game and the learn to play chords game and I found the chord I was looking for!
Good accuracy
by Criticbuster on 2018/07/06 07:49
I don’t usually write reviews about apps, since I find it very helpful to read about others experiences with apps, maybe mine can help people as well. I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, so I was just looking for an app that could tune the guitar accurately. I love the fact that the app has so many separate parts that you can add to it. I don’t need all the other stuff, other players may enjoy the chord library, metronome, and the practice sections it has. Only thing I would like to see is the standard guitar interface have the ability to tune chromatically instead of having no guitar image at all. But great app!
Overall great, but missing a few things
by Cece8289 on 2018/11/20 17:21
Let me start by saying this is a REALLY good app. It’s very accurate, it saves me tons of time with tuning, and it has ALMOST every tuning under the sun to choose from. That being said, for more advanced players who are using less popular tunings like drop G, drop G#, drop F, etc., you’re going to have a really tough time because those aren’t an option. There IS an option to custom tune a 6 string which is great, but does also have some limitations. But I really do wish there was an option to do custom tuning for a 7 string because they only offer standard and drop A for 7 strings (yeah, they’re the most commonly used, but not the only ways to tune a 7 string). But otherwise, really well made app!
Useless tuner
by TruthSetsYouFree on 2020/09/11 15:22
Such a pain to use and I’m giving up trying to tune my acoustic guitar with this app. For example the green bar will never ever settle in the middle of the tune graph letting you know you’re in perfect tune — the notes are always “too high” or “too low,” no matter how much I try to correct it to achieve perfect pitches on my guitar. Since the first method was a bust, I tried relative tuning, trying to get one note in tune by using the app, and then taking it from there, tuning the rest of the strings by ear. That was annoying too, because the notes in the app don’t ring out for several seconds like on a real guitar — this makes it extremely tedious trying to get the low E string in perfect tune since the low E note in the app cuts off after half a second. It sounds unnatural and stupid. Not gonna fuss with this app any longer. I’m just gonna buy a cheap $10 tuner and delete GuitarTuna.
Great App, having trouble restoring old purchases
by DanFingerMan on 2019/08/08 00:56
Been using app for about a year or so. My go-to tuner for guitar tunings. However, I have a slight problem with restoring my guitar tuning options. I recently had to change phones because old phone was badly damaged and I have most guitar tunings unlocked on that version of the app (previous phone). I see now that I have to subscribe in order to unlock the tunings rather than simply being able to buy the ones you need? Is that the reason I cannot access the previous library of tunes I purchased a while back? Please help. I like this app a lot as it provides super accurate tuning.
Best tuner ever!
by X-Clasher on 2018/08/01 23:11
That might be a slightly bias statement but it's from someone who has had GuitarTuna for close to I wanna say 3 maybe 4 years. My point is that in all this time as long as I had my phone with me, any guitar was gonna be in tune. And I haven't dabbled much outside of standard tuning but with the ease of user interaction I'm sure all of them are worth it. I recommend this app to every guitar player I know and now I'm finally taking a moment to recommend this app to all of you whom I don't know. Look no further, this is the app you need to keep your strings singing in harmony 👍🏼 And finally, just a big Thank You to GuitarTuna for existing! MVA! (Most Valuable App) lol
One of the best apps ever!
by juniper hoffman on 2019/06/09 10:20
This is one of the best apps I’ve ever used. I really like how it has both the tuning part of the app AND also the part where it tells/teaches you how to play different chords on the guitar. I’ve literally tried almost every single app out there and I have yet to find any apps that are like this one. PLUS it ALSO kinda lets you do all different kinds of stuff on this app as well! 😲 Thank you so much for creating this app! It has REALLY been useful for me for when I am tuning up my guitar AND trying to learn how to play different chords on the guitar as well! 🎸 😊 😃 Once again... thank you GuitarTuna for creating this app! ☺️
This is Absolutely GREAT!! Totally recommend!!
by Reynolds137 on 2019/01/25 02:22
So, I just started playing the ukalele and this app has really helped me tune my ukalele without being OVERLY confused. I love this app so much because It also helps me learn my cords. This app is very useful and helpful ! Totally recommend this app for any type of guitar/ ukalele, etc. players and even beginners like me! This app also tells me some awesome songs that I can play and rock! There is also learn cord games which is VERY fun and little do you know is helping you learn your instruments cords! LOVE THIS APP!! Like I said TOTALLY RECOMMEND for anyone trying to play the guitar, ukalele, etc. Thanks! And that is a wrap on why I gave this app a 5 star rating !!!
Great tuner
by Original PBR Man on 2018/06/13 20:34
This tuner is quick and easy to use. It has both visual and audible cues to let you know when your string is perfectly in tune. With the free version, you can select from different tunings: guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho. It includes a metronome with many different counts (4/4, 5/4, 7/4, etc), and a chord library. There are also some games, but I haven’t played any of them. You will need to upgrade (pay $) to get alternative/ custom tunings. With the upgrade you get tunings for guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho, as well as 7 and 12 string guitar, 5 string bass, violin family and folk instruments. I only have the free version so I can’t review the upgrade.
Understandable and Appealing Interface
by Feared Alpha on 2020/03/02 05:04
This guitar tuner is very accurate let alone beautiful, the animations make it seem like the sound is coming to life. I have been a loyal customer to yousician for about three years and i wouldn't have it any other way. I do have to offer some constructive criticism. The buttons and interface when it comes to switching out from a standard tune to a tuning of A gets bit confusing and they should make it more straight forward instead of making it feel a bit like a maze and in no way should tuning a instrument to cost money...Other then that i love to vibe of the app!
Easiest best guitar tuner
by vansonn on 2018/06/02 15:34
I was moving and was going to get rid of my guitar since I never learned to play it and decided to keep it and learn. I had an old electric tuner that needed new batteries so I downloaded this app. People had messed with my guitar over the years while it just sat in a corner and so it was way out of tune. With this app I was able to get it back in tune in less than a minute (first time using the app). So, needless to say, this app is extremely easy to use and very accurate as well. Big thx to whoever made it. I have been playing for about three weeks now and am progressing quickly thx to this guitar tuner.
Efficient
by Rosedust24 on 2017/03/13 19:47
It's a music tuning app, so there will be pros and cons. The fact that we do not have to go out and purchase a decent tuner should make us all happy. Like anything else, it can mess up. These are minor, like when the microphone struggles with picking up the sound waves, it will tweak out sometimes. Oh and the pop up that asks users to rate the app.. so I finally did it. Though, I'm sure it will keep popping up every now and then. Other than that, I use it just about every day. I've tried some other tuning apps, but i prefer the dark theme of GuitarTuna! And it's set up nicely, easy to see and auto tune.
Can’t just view frequency any more
by Agentmith on 2019/03/05 18:32
I’ve been using this to tune various non-standard instruments based on frequency and never had a problem until today. It keeps bringing me to the store page for some reason and it’s incredibly frustrating. Before, all I needed to do was open the app and it wouldn’t be associated with an instrument, it just measured the frequency and told me if the pitch value was correct. This is literally all I want, and I can’t find this anymore. I’ve restored purchases and all that. If this used to be something that was removed and is now a paid in-app purchase or a subscription, I’ll just ditch this and use something else, which I hope isn’t the case as I’ve used this app for years. Its a dirty practice to remove features that were included for however long then ask for more money to get them back.
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!
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!
A Breeze
by amyleemayer on 2020/11/28 13:43
I am a total newbie to the stringed instrument clan. I got a ukulele, and am taking my lessons pretty seriously, and I simply must have a tuned uke. I know you can easily buy a tuner to put on the instrument and it’s less than paying each month, but I like using the app. I tune before every session and if it’s a long sesh, I may tune again. I can hear it in my ear from years of vocal training, and Tuna helps me get that string right on pitch very easily, even fine-tuning it. No pun intended. Plus it’s right there on my phone, no searching my bag or fidgeting with another device. Quick, easy, works every time.
Good for all strings but E
by ODDSLOWEN 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.
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.
Not going good so far
by @simply._.carley on 2019/09/15 20:12
Okay so I’m 12 going on 13 and I have used this app for almost 5 months now, because my Teacher recommended me to get it, She said that it would be easy to use for me so that I could tune my guitar. And it has up until now, today I was going to practice my guitar and figured it was probably out of tune, so I got on the app and started to tune it. When I got to my low E, it kept saying it was in tune and I knew it wasn’t, I even deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still didn’t work, so until y’all get it fixed I’m going to use another app. NOT HAPPY😬😤😤
Best tuning app so far
by DKKeyes on 2017/07/15 17:24
This is my go-to tuner any time. It's not only the most easy to use and accurate tuner, it also has a lot of awesome features I love. I teach guitar and I tell all my students to download this app because of it's other awesome features - The chord library is very helpful for anyone who needs a quick reference guide and the color scheme makes it user friendly for people of all ages. The games are a fun way for people to learn and self-teach themselves technique while making it fun. The included metronome is a great perk and it's easy to use and adjust. Great job creating this app!
Amazing App
by Ebdnekek on 2019/06/19 02:46
I’ve been playing guitar for almost half a year and I can’t explain how helpful this app is. Its multitude of settings, tools, games, and songs makes this app great. The metronome has come in handy many times with slowing down a song and increasing the bpm every time I feel comfortable with it. I would 100% recommend this app to people looking to start using guitar because of its accessibility and usefulness for free, and I would recommend it for more advanced players if you’re willing to pay a dollar or two for better settings. Amazing App.
Custom tuning limit?
by JJT73 on 2021/03/20 18:13
Why are custom tunings limited to three? This is absurd. Given the storage capabilities of the device, and the fact this app is just reading saved data,I should be able to create, store, and read as many custom tunings as I want. Yet, it is limited to three. This is where I have to question the knowledge about guitars by the app creators. There are more than just three custom tunings available to the instrument, ya know? Great app otherwise, but even after having this app for YEARS, this silly limitation has never been addressed. Hence my 2 star rating. Address this please. It is beyond silly! Take it from me; also an app developer. There is very little in the way of a technical limitation that justifies this very poor design decision.
Good App
by CatFun182 on 2017/03/18 00:58
I highly recommend it. I got a guitar 5 days ago, and I used this apps games. It's $7 for all the levels in the game but it's worth it. In my opinion, he games are the easiest way to learn the chords, and each level has different chords in it. The games also tell you if you're doing the chord right which is nice to have. I prefer this app over the fingering chart book that my dad gave me! It's a good app that makes guitars easier to learn. Another thing to note is that you can also learn the bass, the ukulele, and both acoustic and electric guitars using this app.
Great for beginners
by runningman2020 on 2019/05/29 13:21
I just started learning how to play guitar and this app helps so much! Don’t have the time to find and use a tutor in person so I’ve been YouTubing songs and practicing when I can. Not only does it save you the money from buying a tuner, if you come across a chord you aren’t comfortable with or don’t know or maybe just want to see the other ways to play it, there’s a section just for chords. I enjoy this app and will be using it far into the future. Thank you to all the people who spent their time making this amazing tool!
AMAZING FAST AND ACCURATE
by Katniss57 on 2019/01/16 17:59
I used to not want to play my guitar because tuning it was such a pain, then I got this app and now it’s SO fast! Ill be with people and I’ll tune my guitar with this app then they go “woah that was fast” 10/10 recommend. I’m not an advanced guitar player though so idk if they have this or if I just couldn’t find it but I’ve seen people talk about tuning the strings beyond just standard tuning and I couldn’t find that without having to pay for it on here so that’s unfortunate but it’s a great app overall. (Behold the longest run on sentence of all time)
GREAT, but I still have some ideas
by Kira.crystal on 2017/09/25 20:09
Read a different review if you want to know all the good the bugs about this app because they cover them all. I just wanted to make a suggestion. It is already so, so useful, but it would be even more useful if there was an option to play the learning games without a time limit so that the user could just practice accuracy if they are not ready for accuracy AND speed yet. A feature that tells you what chord/note you are playing would also be helpful if you want to play a chord/note and then check if it is what you meant to play.
Fantastic- better than my other tuners
by dinonuggets217 on 2021/02/08 15:26
I love this app so much, its gotten to the point where I don’t even use my actual electronic tuners anymore because this is so much easier. I was shocked when my friend told me about it, and that it was free. I thought there was no way it could be that good if it was a free app, but I honestly stand by it and recommend it to anyone I know either starting out on guitar, or even my experienced friends. It’s so much more convenient, plus the chord lists are great for people just starting out or needing a refresher.
Only 4 because...
by Blitz766 on 2019/09/29 06:12
The pro version has a monthly fee. That’s a little ridiculous. For that I can (and will) go buy a standard 6 string tuner for less than a years cost for this app. That being said, if you have a 12 string, a bass, a mandolin, or any other stringed instrument, or multiple of those, very decent app but there are others out there without a recurring fee. If you don’t mind two bucks a month it’s WELL worth it. So, what you get for the subscription is pretty awesome. Then again the same could be said for an actual guitar tuner (device). For which you pay only once.
Extremely recommended!
by Billielilsh on 2020/03/02 03:55
Basically before I downloaded GuitarTuna I was looking for an app to tune my ukulele because I lost my other one. As I looked all the apps I downloaded charged money. But when I downloaded GuitarTuna I could tune my ukulele with no prob! There was no ads, or things telling me to buy stuff. There is a premium mode where you can pay put it toatally optional. My uke sounds perfectly tuned and this app does not jg work for uke but it also does with Guitar and I believe acoustic! Anyways to sum it all up I believe this is the best tuning app yet!
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

by _allicorn 205___ on 2019/08/20 00:04
This app is amazing. It tunes guitars much faster then a clip tuner... but it still ends of sounding the same!!! I got back from a two month trip the other day, and this is the first time I’ve played guitar since because it was too big to bring. It took 27 minutes to tune because it was so out of tune, and at first I was irritated with the app, but I was looking through my photo app, watched a video of me playing “ode to joy” a few weeks before I left in that trip, and I realized, it WAS out of tune! This app is amazing, and I 100% reccomend.

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

I’m so happy to have guitar tuna it is so helpful I have ukulele classes and my teacher told me to get this I am to happy I listened to him
4.99 a month for the pro version?
by DavidSTvz on 2021/04/13 15:27
Really. A recurring cost for a guitar tuner. I’m uninstalling this junk and going to get something else.
does what it’s supposed to do
by thaliaalli on 2021/04/13 02:36
and does it well

How I found this app
by howie ostrander on 2021/04/09 00:50
So one day I was looking all over YouTube on how to play guitar I started to look and look and look and then one of them said that there are even apps that help you turn your guitar so I got on looked at it for a little and it worked so THANK YOU!!!!
This app gave me more than I even asked for and it’s great
by hbfuisnejdc on 2021/04/08 17:48
All I needed was an easy to use guitar tuner that works well and this app gave me that and much more! It is so simple to use and works perfectly! It even can teach you cords and has little “mini games” to teach you a bit more about how to play it. This app is the best guitar tuner I have ever used. LOVE IT
Now I have to pay again?
by Brainspoon on 2021/04/07 04:39
I have really enjoyed this tuner, and paid for it to get access to all the instruments and tunings. Now suddenly alternate tunings are shut off unless I pay a monthly subscription, which is too high. Not cool.
Easy
by Rick813p55 on 2021/04/06 21:13
Helps me tune fast and easy
Why
by goo gaa kai on 2021/04/06 19:07
I like how good it is at tuning but I have two instruments and it’s tiring to keep deleting and uploading so make that change please
THIS APP IS LEGENDARY
by TheLegendaryOne01 on 2021/04/06 17:58
I really like this app because it’s accurate, it doesn’t force you to subscribe, and it tunes my guitar very well. I recommend this app for anyone who plays guitar, ukulele, and other instruments.
5 STAR APP LONGGG
by cousins 8 on yt on 2021/04/06 15:01
This app really helps to get my guitar to sound like a guitar and not a little...thingy that doesn’t sound like a guitar
Very great and easy to use
by Fredy383 on 2021/04/05 04:27
Right as I open up the app it has the tuner ready no crazy extra stuff , definitely recommend if you play guitar everyday. Additionally it has a list of chords that include sound and finger placement 10/10 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
5 dollars a month?
by tubeMP on 2021/04/05 01:05
To use a tuner? On your phone non the less? Pretty predatory practice if you ask me. It’s ok if you only ever want to play in standard tuning
Ohhhh this the app right here homey
by BCmatheny on 2021/04/03 02:31
Makes me moist
Ukulele tuner
by brynlee k on 2021/04/01 19:01

by Gaurav Biswas on 2021/03/31 12:16
This is very stupid.Manual mode is the most annoying and why can’t we do the custom for free?You can just put adds.If you do all these fixes,I will rate you 6-star +.
Awesome
by aniscore on 2021/03/31 04:07
I have been using it since 2009 and I don’t use any other guitar tuner.

by danielforrest869 on 2021/03/29 22:43
seriously why do i have to pay for drop d?
Good but has a few issues
by The Dark Prince" on 2021/03/28 14:53
If your guitar is out of tune, sometimes it changes it to another string. When your trying to get a E it gives you a B. Otherwise it is amazing and better than all other guitar tuners.
not properly work
by Sanket6780 on 2021/03/28 06:54
I installed this app on my ios phone, very regret to inform its not working properly. strings recognize not properly during running time. if your r playing E app recognize A.
Best free app ever.
by TheKingOfFuzz on 2021/03/27 16:40
Get serious: it’s one of the only things in the world that does what it says on the tin. Five stars, today.

It’s easy to use
by jezebel Jamison on 2021/03/13 02:26
😊I got my guitar and then I figured out that it wasn’t tuned so I found GuitarTuna and then I tried it out and I think it worked so well I’ve been practicing every night making sure that my guitar is tuned so I try to use this app as often as possible because it helps me when I think my guitar is out of tune it also works for ukuleles and other instruments😊
Nice app!
by ♥︎🄺🄰🅃🅂♥︎ on 2021/03/12 20:00
I use this every time before my music class. I think it works great for a normal guitar (that’s all I've ever tried, guitar and ukulele). But... maybe it’s just me or my cheap ukelele... because I tried to use it for a ukelele and it worked horribly. But on the good side... it has settings were you can tune different things.
It’s legit
by bsbhsbahs on 2021/03/12 01:48
It works
Tuner stuck loading
by Does this count as a nickname on 2021/03/11 22:47
Never had a problem with the app until today. I opened it and in the main tuning section there was just a loading icon. I couldn’t click the strings to hear the right tune nor would it hear my guitar strings and measure if they are out of tune
A great help
by Cookielover9000 on 2021/03/10 14:58
A great help in guitar class, I really like it. It’s easy to use and accurate.
Don’t use it
by guitar_maniac_101 on 2021/03/09 21:13
I downloaded the app thinking that it’s gonna be a good guitar tuner but I was wrong see a download it it started tuning my guitar and on the Estring it was telling me that it was too loose when it sounds good but I was like maybe it’s me so I started tuning more kept saying it was still too loose and boom the string snapped and that happened twice with two of my guitars with BRAND NEW STRINGS and I’ve been playing guitar for a while and I know I’m not doing it wrong so take my advice and DONT USE IT or you’ll be spending money on lots of strings
This app is amazing
by iejems on 2021/03/09 20:41
Love the app it makes tuning a breeze helps so much when I need to tune for a lesson because I can bring this with me so easy
Love it
by sloth juices. on 2021/03/07 16:37
It works very well
Good if you only want standard tuning
by Awesomegoose420 on 2021/03/06 19:52
Works great for standard tuning no complaints there but how come there’s no setting for open G or F tuning that would make a good addition
Horrible

WHY IS EVERYTHING A SUBSCRIPTION
by GZjirjf on 2021/03/05 22:46
I would just like to purchase the tuner i want like you used to be able to. no one should pay a subscription fee for a GUITAR TUNER.
Amazing
by Camren H on 2021/03/05 20:02
This is one of the best guitar tuners out there in my opinion! Congrats to the makers of this app. I used it to tune my guitar and it worked AMAZING 🤩.
Indispensable
by Galvatron(Megatron) on 2021/03/05 15:29
Great accurate app, easy to use with no interference.
AMAZING APP- Charlotte

I’ve been looking for a tuner app for my ukulele, it’s so hard! Then I was scrolling through the options, and this came up, I loooed at the pictures, and it was so cool! I take lessons and my. Teacher always says it’s so in tune, and I say, I used this ap called “Guitar Tuna” your the best!
Love it
by maya music on 2021/03/04 20:14
I use it all the time! I’m in love.. it tunes my guitar perfectly and for free. Definitely recommend!! 🥰
This app is awesome! I’m able to even tune into a different key change. Best app ever!
by the blob sos on 2021/03/04 17:17
I recommend this app for everyone. It will get your guitar in tune I about 30 seconds.
Great! But......
by ooh gah boo gah on 2021/03/03 23:05
This app is SO amazing! It has everything! But....... I wish GuitarTuna Pro was free instead of having to pay for it. I love EVERYTHING about it except for GuitarTuna Pro. If the makers could maybe lower the price, this app would be my FAVORITE tuning app ever! Thanks for the geniuses who made this! I repeat: you guys are GENIUSES!!!!!!!!! There’s even a tuner for a 12 string aucostic guitar! I mean how CRAZY is that!?!
pretty thicc

Great App You Should Try It
by Savvy Paige W on 2021/03/02 16:57
I downloaded this app to tune my ukulele and it really works! And it also has all different types of things to help you learn. You don’t just have to use it for one instrument either. You can use it for all string instruments. It’s really great no matter what though. 5 stars from me!
Great app
by AllOnline on 2021/02/27 05:59
Very useful for the beginner guitar player!! Love it and it just works.
I mean I haven’t had problems lol
by hejgcuvshva on 2021/02/27 04:21
It’s pretty good I use this app for both my ukelele and my guitar I don’t mind the only standard tuning option cause that’s what I use most of the time anyway maybe it’s cause I’m a beginner but whatever. It’s pretty good I haven’t had any problems and it’s easy to use if I had the money I’d pay for the games it has!☺️
Awesome, thank you👍👍👍
by GarryIStheBest on 2021/02/26 00:08
👍👍👍👍👍
I love this tuner! But a question..
by eg egberbeg y u u on 2021/02/23 19:57
Do you all have any plans of adding integration for shortcuts with siri ex: “Siri, tune my guitar”?
AMAZING
by iluvdisgame53 on 2021/02/22 22:28
I love this app I just started to play guitar and this helped so much for tuning it’s easy and quick and I highly recommend this!
LOVE IT!
by ImaElf on 2021/02/22 22:10
I love the app. It has never failed me while tuning. I’m just having an issue currently. The app won’t open. It sits at the loading screen and that’s all. I tried to report it on the website but had no luck.
It’s aight but...
by 6Pen6Cap6Chew on 2021/02/21 23:18
The only free thing is the tuner and some chords , you gotta pay for tab and video tutorials AND to do other tunings other than standard, so you get a free tuner and that’s about it
Just allow alternate tunings please?
by alexb00b on 2021/02/21 01:03
It’s not that hard.
This app is AMAZING!!
by Belle, Philadelphia, 12345 on 2021/02/20 12:02
So incredibly user friendly. I can finally tune my own guitar!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Good tuner
by jrifbjjrjidn on 2021/02/18 21:35
This tuner is amazing I have had no trouble with the tuner honestly even the premium price is not bad
Remove the headstock picture
by Prophettttttt on 2021/02/18 20:45
This app works great. But, it would be so much better and visibly pleasing to have the option for the tuner full screen and remove the headstock picture that takes up so much room.
Awesome!
by KingKongorama on 2021/02/18 16:09
Me and every musician in my family love this app it is so helpful especially for tuning I def recommend
awesome!!
by Cool from Colorado on 2021/02/18 15:24
Was just using this app at first to tune my ukulele. my tuner was out of batteries and i needed something to use quickly. did not think it would the most accurate, but it actually tuned it almost perfectly! aside from that, it also has a whole collection of chords and a metronome. it helped me learn the ukulele AND guitar by myself. and this is all WITHOUT the pro version!! very few ads (if any). would def recommend!!
Cello, Guitar, Uke tuner
by FrePhill on 2021/02/18 01:56
This is best app for any string.
How easy it is to navigate

Not knowing how easy it was to understand how it works
Great!!
by Henry Cora on 2021/02/16 18:04
I downloaded the app just for tuning but it is more than just for tuning you and can use it to play guitar games and more if you re starting to learn the guitar then you should definitely download GuitarTuna
Perfect
by Blueboy777 on 2021/02/16 00:11
I have used other apps and none of them work as good as this one. GuitarTuna is by far the best one out there. Easy to see if you’re too high or too low. Makes putting in new strings a piece of cake!
String snapped
by 5852236314 on 2021/02/15 00:35
I was tuning my guitar because I had just learned how to play. When I was tuning low e string it told me to tighten it more so I did then the next thing I knew one of my guitar strings was snapped. It still said -29 when it snapped. I would not recommend this app.
awesome
by mrr 11 on 2021/02/14 04:28
this app was relatively easy to use and i was able to tune my ukulele in about ten minutes 10/10 recommended
5 stars

It is a good app! tunes very well and it is very helpful!
Ok but pricey
by oroblrem on 2021/02/13 01:12
$5 a month seems pretty pricey to me. You can buy any number of tuners online for under $30. Worked good on my 6-string and the problems I had with my 12-string were my fault for not better muting the companion string. The mandolin on the other hand was not as effective, telling me that strings that I knew to be very close to tune were way out. I ended up tuning with my guitar and when it was right on I tried the app again, and it agreed with me. I hope it works out for the developers so the app stays around because it is real comforting to know I can always resubscribe if I’m willing to pay $5. Sometimes it’s worth it.
Good and easy to use

Best Tuner!

Best tuner ever!
Amazing!
by AquaticRex on 2021/02/09 01:47
Please, if you have had trouble finding a good tuner, get an amazing FREE tuner! This is the best tuner I’ve used in my 12+ years in guitar!
Fantastic- better than my other tuners
by dinonuggets217 on 2021/02/08 15:26
I love this app so much, its gotten to the point where I don’t even use my actual electronic tuners anymore because this is so much easier. I was shocked when my friend told me about it, and that it was free. I thought there was no way it could be that good if it was a free app, but I honestly stand by it and recommend it to anyone I know either starting out on guitar, or even my experienced friends. It’s so much more convenient, plus the chord lists are great for people just starting out or needing a refresher.
Best tuner
by Noh J on 2021/02/07 20:22
I downloaded this tuner not expecting much, but the free version worked great and helped me tune out my guitar. Great app.
Good
by happy fish 11/07/2009 on 2021/02/06 23:57
So a friend of mine finds out that I am learning guitar, and since he plays the guitar himself, he showed me GuitarTuna. The tuning is pretty good, not amazing, but good. the games are extremely helpful, and they have taught me several new cords. And that’s all 🤷🏻‍♂️. I will continue to use this app every time I pull out the guitar. I would recommend this app to any guitar enthusiast, young or old, near and far, no matter how much experience you have on any instrument.
Awesome!!
by Yolga_ca on 2021/02/06 22:42
Downloaded this app an year ago, using very often. So easy to navigate, tune guitar very fast, it takes a minute! Thank you!
Best tuner ever
by CAPSAYSWOW on 2021/02/06 20:45
It’s so easy to tune your instrument. I have been tuning my ukulele and it’s very easy. This helps me tune my ukulele much more faster.
Amazing
by ngfgb on 2021/02/06 14:07
It is fast,easy,and accurate! I love this app!
Awesome tuner
by Sammy1360 on 2021/02/05 21:08
I only used this app because I needed a tuner and didn’t think it would be doing such a good job totally recommend this app if your looking to tune your guitar!
Amazing
by Miri Mermelstein on 2021/02/05 17:53
Amazing I always use it to tune my guitar and has all different stuff on it
Easy and extremely helpful
by bfjxiskdnxjd on 2021/02/05 14:02
I just started playing guitar this year and this is the best app that I’ve found to help tune my guitar. This app is so so soooo easy to use and it’s the most accurate and FREE app I’ve used so far. I’ll never use any other app than this, tuning my guitar is so much fast now!! 11/10 would DEFINITELY recommend!!!
Great app
by Mrbrentbt on 2021/02/05 06:31
Probably the most used tuning app among all guitarists

I kid you not it tuned my guitar
Very Useful!
by Drum_King M-Man on 2021/02/04 20:32
I’ve used this app for a few years without a hitch, but recently I thought I would try others just out of curiosity. Well it didn’t take long before deleting those and returning back to Guitar Tuna. As a semi-professional musician, songwriter/lyricist, it’s the only app that gets the job done! It’s all you’ll ever need!
Great

Best tuner love it it is a great app
Standard tuning
by KingChubby4698 on 2021/02/04 02:10
I used to use this app all the time, up until they added a pay wall in an update. The fact that you can only use standard tuning with this without paying says enough.
DONT DOWNLOAD
by Lil cold hard waffle on 2021/02/02 01:03
I tried this app to tune my dads gutair and it kept saying higher and it made two of my strings break. DOWNLOAD AT YOUR OWN RISK!
A great companion
by Stan801 on 2021/02/01 20:32
This app is great for anyone who aspires to play guitar. I taught myself to play, but I needed an app to help me keep my guitar in tune. When I downloaded this app, I expected another trial-and-pay-after-three-days type of app. Thankfully, I was wrong. There are in-app purchases, but they don’t ruin the experience the app brings. It can help tune many different instruments and different variants of instruments, and it can help you learn different cords and such. It has been a great companion for me and acoustic.

This app is great for a beginner player like me. Easy to use and real accurate.
They put most tuning behind a paywall
by Cluttered1998 on 2021/02/01 00:59
You can’t access custom tuning, meaning picking a pitch and tuning to it, without paying. What is this?
Amazing app
by Elgamedabest8 on 2021/01/31 21:35
This is just the best app
Awesome!

Secret weapon
by Bggggeeeedd on 2018/04/15 01:20
I downloaded this app thinking it was just a standard guitar tuner. I used it for about 6 months just as a tuner. I needed to tune a 12 string acoustic for my dad and didn't have a 12 string tuner. I did a little exploring in this app and low and behold I found it actually has a setting just for 12 strings! It cut the time of tuning from ear to doing it off the app from 10 minutes + by ear to barely any time with using the app. So as I realized I hadn't takin advantage of the app as much as I should I started exploring even more. It's a gold mine of knowledge. Not only is it a tuner (best app tuner I've used personally) but it also has a metronome , games , chords, a plethora of instruments to choose from and it's SUPER easy to navigate. I got my dad an iPhone (first iPhone he's 65) and he always complained about how it was hard to use. I showed him the GuitarTuna app and he hasn't ever had any confusion with how to use it. I think that says a lot of how instinctive the user interface is if my dad can do it :P all in all I can't recommend this app enough. I literally tell all my guitar player friends to try it and not one has said anything negative about it. I love it! I can't imagine how the developers can make it better than it already is but something tells me they will! Thanks for making an awesome app. From one musician to another, THANKS!!! Cheers! -Brad.
I really like this app!!
by shorty0979 on 2017/10/24 17:08
I've never personally tuned a guitar,- I've always had to have someone tune it for me when I briefly owned several guitars many years ago. At the time, I had bought them for my (now) ex husband so he was the one who always tuned them. But unfortunately, when I eventually left him- He got rid of them all instead of giving them to me since I paid for all of them. So needless to say, I've never really had the chance to learn how to play much at all. Recently, I was given another guitar from my sister, & knew I needed to learn how to tune it so I downloaded this app. I find it extremely easy to use & very helpful. Now I can tune my guitar (& maybe??) FINALLY learn how to play like I've always wanted too!! I LOVE Music & have to listen to it daily, it's my "Escape" from the world, my life, & all the problems or stresses that I might face daily. I've always wanted to learn how to play for as long as I can remember, so that I could eventually learn to play (at least some??) of the songs I love to listen to everyday or maybe even some that I grew up listening to as a kid. I'm thankful for this app so I can begin my journey towards reaching my goal/dream of learning how to play guitar & music. Thank you for making this app so very easy!! I Love It!!
Nice app definitely recommended
by Xx_DonutEater_xX on 2018/01/19 20:29
Hello everyone reading this. This is an app that made my life so much easier. I started playing guitar 4 months ago and I didn’t know anything about the guitar. So I needed someone to tune my guitar for me or at least help me (My grandpa knows how to play and tune guitar. He was pretty young when he started playing on it. But I can’t always ask him to help me). So this app was just perfect for me. It’s free. It shows you all the chords. It’s precise while tuning. And it has little mini-games as well (although if you want more games you need to pay. But it’s pretty reasonable price). So the bottom line than. If you want the basics of the basics on guitar this is the app that will provide you with anything. If you want to learn more you need to pay (But I think their Yousician app is much better if you wanna “master” the guitar). And the best thing is that the app is beautiful, it has a good tuner and all the chords you will probably ever need. (This was kinda too big of a bottom line 🤣) Thank you for reading!
Versatile and very usable
by Charles Bailey ~ on 2017/07/09 16:09
The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.
I love this app!
by Alyssa P. J. on 2018/06/07 06:38
This app has been amazing! Before I get into detail, this app has helped me learn so much, and I’m so glad I downloaded it. It has been the easiest way for me to learn chords. I first downloaded this app when I began playing guitar, to help keep it in tune. As I became more familiar with the app and my guitar, I started using the “learn to play chords” feature. When I was ready to learn new chords I purchased the full version. One of the best purchases I could’ve made. All of the features expand for the guitar. But, not all of the features expand for the ukulele. This is pretty disappointing. This app has been a foundation for me learning to play and I really wish they had the “learn to play chords” feature for the uke. Hopefully the developers are working on this! Honestly if you’re newer (or even experienced) to playing and are looking for an app to help you get your instrument in tune and learn new chords I’d recommend this app.
The King of the Field!!
by Joshua of Oregon on 2019/03/31 16:48
From all of the tunner apps on the market I’m only reviewing the ones that are free. Being a real musician, and currently having zero to no money, when I type into google ‘tuner apps for free’ I’m assuming the results are going to be representative of free tuner apps.....not apps that are free until you want to tune with them.... Apparently that’s what most app development people assuming is going to work. What they don’t understand is that when I go through all of the effort of finding your app, downloading your app, installing your app, opening your app, and learning how to use your app....only to be greeted with “you must purchase this app in order to get it to work…They not only have lost a customer… They’ve made an enemy for life… I actually have a special spot in my password black book it’s labeled poison… In on this page or only the names of the developers who have wasted my time by misrepresenting their free app… This app, is a breathe of fresh air. You can actually use this app to tune your guitar for free… If you pay additional amount it’ll do a lot more cool stuff for you, but if you don’t have the money to pay for the upgrades, it still functions fantastically as a tuner … Four stars… A+ plus… Way to go guys you’re the best
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.
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, but with a couple annoying quirks
by katieyouoldfool on 2019/07/31 08:05
Before anything else, let me say this app is still 100% worth getting and I use it pretty much every day. It’s not just a tuner, it’s everything you need when practicing on your own. BUT there are a couple minor problems that got pretty annoying the more I used the app. The chord library interface is really bad. I love that they have so many chords and alternate fingerings, but really I wish there was just a button for each chord, instead of having to slowly scroll a dial through every note and variation to find the one I need. Also, I think the tuning calibration might be off. In settings, it says it’s automatically calibrated to to 440hz. But, whenever I play something already tuned properly to 440, like a digital keyboard, it reads as a 2-3 semitones too high. I’ve tried this with multiple instruments and used the app on several different devices and it happens every time. You can easily get around this by just changing the calibration to 443hz in settings, but it’s something to keep in mind, especially if you play in a group with other people. Again, I still recommend this app, flaws and all. There are just a couple things I’d love to see improved in future updates.
Works very well
by SevinStorey on 2018/04/09 03:11
As a young boy (in my early 20’s) I picked up my first hand me down flat top and bought a chord chart poster from Walmart and self taught myself how to strum chords enough to eventually start playing parties and small bars. I never did learn how to tune however but I can definitely tell when she’s out. I would always have to ask a friend or count on a small tuner that was easy to misplace or lose but now I can do it on my phone which I always have in my pocket and its extremely accurate as I’ve checked it on tuners and with class act guitar players including myself. There’s no bothersome pop ups (thank God) and it never asks me to buy anything,(again thank God) or I would drop it from my phone. Great deal for anybody out there.
great for learning the basics but...
by smhgamergal on 2019/06/29 14:00
It only gets 3 stars because they need to add a feature where you can play the chord practice games without a timer, Because it gets really annoying to have to keep restarting the game if you are a novice trying to learn the chords and can only get a couple before you have to stop and pickup your phone to restart the lesson. I was so stoked to see there was a feature that would teach you the chords and pick up if you were playing them correctly through the microphone and I paid for the full app only to find out how ridiculously obnoxious it is to have to restart every 45 seconds. seriously you need to add a feature where you can just play the games with no timer or with a custom timer. it's messed up the way it is now where you can only play each game for 45 seconds at a time.
Great for tuning, but!!
by A new soul on 2020/07/23 04:04
this is a great tuning app, but there is one major problem, it is not very accessible for those of us who are blind. I somehow keep losing the automatic tuner, then I have to uninstall it or find someone to put it back for me. Also, I can’t take advantage of the other things in the app and I have a subscription. I was trying to use the free tuner, but it didn’t work out so I thought I would get a subscription and it would be better. It isn’t!! yes the tuner works for when I tune my guitar in standard tuning, and I like the fact that it has the tone to let me know it’s in tune. I keep seeing all the things that the subscription provides and I can’t use any of that! this is the closest thing I can get to an electronic tuner, I really really hope you guys will make it better for those of us who have to use voiceover and other screen readers.
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.
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
sick!
by yum~yum🗿 on 2019/05/30 23:17
i got this app when i FIRST started playing guitar and it did its job well, taught me all my major chords and tuned my guitar pretty well, but as i progressed (learned everything the app had to offer) i realized i needed everything else the app had to offer so i purchased the pro version and its 10x more useful. Basically what im trying to say is this app is great for beginners (beginner myself) but you definitely need the pro version if you’re really gonna take guitar seriously and use it on a day to day basis to teach yourself guitar and progress, unless you’re going for in person lessons with a teacher of course. If you're not going for in person lessons don't worry this app will take care of you.
More than just a tuner
by rainbow chords on 2019/07/31 22:00
I downloaded this app cause I didn’t have a guitar tuner and I didn’t want to buy one if I didn’t have to. So I downloaded this app thinking it was just a tuner, and only using it as a tuner for a few weeks. But one day I was trying to learn a song on guitar and I didn’t know one of the chords, so I was looking through apps but all of the good ones had you do the subscription and pay and whatnot, then I tried looking it up but it didn’t help, so I gave up basically. Then I was experimenting around with this app, seeing what else it had, and then I found it! Under games I found a learn chords game and the learn to play chords game and I found the chord I was looking for!
Good accuracy
by Criticbuster on 2018/07/06 07:49
I don’t usually write reviews about apps, since I find it very helpful to read about others experiences with apps, maybe mine can help people as well. I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, so I was just looking for an app that could tune the guitar accurately. I love the fact that the app has so many separate parts that you can add to it. I don’t need all the other stuff, other players may enjoy the chord library, metronome, and the practice sections it has. Only thing I would like to see is the standard guitar interface have the ability to tune chromatically instead of having no guitar image at all. But great app!
Overall great, but missing a few things
by Cece8289 on 2018/11/20 17:21
Let me start by saying this is a REALLY good app. It’s very accurate, it saves me tons of time with tuning, and it has ALMOST every tuning under the sun to choose from. That being said, for more advanced players who are using less popular tunings like drop G, drop G#, drop F, etc., you’re going to have a really tough time because those aren’t an option. There IS an option to custom tune a 6 string which is great, but does also have some limitations. But I really do wish there was an option to do custom tuning for a 7 string because they only offer standard and drop A for 7 strings (yeah, they’re the most commonly used, but not the only ways to tune a 7 string). But otherwise, really well made app!
Useless tuner
by TruthSetsYouFree on 2020/09/11 15:22
Such a pain to use and I’m giving up trying to tune my acoustic guitar with this app. For example the green bar will never ever settle in the middle of the tune graph letting you know you’re in perfect tune — the notes are always “too high” or “too low,” no matter how much I try to correct it to achieve perfect pitches on my guitar. Since the first method was a bust, I tried relative tuning, trying to get one note in tune by using the app, and then taking it from there, tuning the rest of the strings by ear. That was annoying too, because the notes in the app don’t ring out for several seconds like on a real guitar — this makes it extremely tedious trying to get the low E string in perfect tune since the low E note in the app cuts off after half a second. It sounds unnatural and stupid. Not gonna fuss with this app any longer. I’m just gonna buy a cheap $10 tuner and delete GuitarTuna.
Great App, having trouble restoring old purchases
by DanFingerMan on 2019/08/08 00:56
Been using app for about a year or so. My go-to tuner for guitar tunings. However, I have a slight problem with restoring my guitar tuning options. I recently had to change phones because old phone was badly damaged and I have most guitar tunings unlocked on that version of the app (previous phone). I see now that I have to subscribe in order to unlock the tunings rather than simply being able to buy the ones you need? Is that the reason I cannot access the previous library of tunes I purchased a while back? Please help. I like this app a lot as it provides super accurate tuning.
Best tuner ever!
by X-Clasher on 2018/08/01 23:11
That might be a slightly bias statement but it's from someone who has had GuitarTuna for close to I wanna say 3 maybe 4 years. My point is that in all this time as long as I had my phone with me, any guitar was gonna be in tune. And I haven't dabbled much outside of standard tuning but with the ease of user interaction I'm sure all of them are worth it. I recommend this app to every guitar player I know and now I'm finally taking a moment to recommend this app to all of you whom I don't know. Look no further, this is the app you need to keep your strings singing in harmony 👍🏼 And finally, just a big Thank You to GuitarTuna for existing! MVA! (Most Valuable App) lol
One of the best apps ever!

This is one of the best apps I’ve ever used. I really like how it has both the tuning part of the app AND also the part where it tells/teaches you how to play different chords on the guitar. I’ve literally tried almost every single app out there and I have yet to find any apps that are like this one. PLUS it ALSO kinda lets you do all different kinds of stuff on this app as well! 😲 Thank you so much for creating this app! It has REALLY been useful for me for when I am tuning up my guitar AND trying to learn how to play different chords on the guitar as well! 🎸 😊 😃 Once again... thank you GuitarTuna for creating this app! ☺️
This is Absolutely GREAT!! Totally recommend!!
by Reynolds137 on 2019/01/25 02:22
So, I just started playing the ukalele and this app has really helped me tune my ukalele without being OVERLY confused. I love this app so much because It also helps me learn my cords. This app is very useful and helpful ! Totally recommend this app for any type of guitar/ ukalele, etc. players and even beginners like me! This app also tells me some awesome songs that I can play and rock! There is also learn cord games which is VERY fun and little do you know is helping you learn your instruments cords! LOVE THIS APP!! Like I said TOTALLY RECOMMEND for anyone trying to play the guitar, ukalele, etc. Thanks! And that is a wrap on why I gave this app a 5 star rating !!!
Great tuner
by Original PBR Man on 2018/06/13 20:34
This tuner is quick and easy to use. It has both visual and audible cues to let you know when your string is perfectly in tune. With the free version, you can select from different tunings: guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho. It includes a metronome with many different counts (4/4, 5/4, 7/4, etc), and a chord library. There are also some games, but I haven’t played any of them. You will need to upgrade (pay $) to get alternative/ custom tunings. With the upgrade you get tunings for guitar, bass, ukulele and cavaquinho, as well as 7 and 12 string guitar, 5 string bass, violin family and folk instruments. I only have the free version so I can’t review the upgrade.
Understandable and Appealing Interface
by Feared Alpha on 2020/03/02 05:04
This guitar tuner is very accurate let alone beautiful, the animations make it seem like the sound is coming to life. I have been a loyal customer to yousician for about three years and i wouldn't have it any other way. I do have to offer some constructive criticism. The buttons and interface when it comes to switching out from a standard tune to a tuning of A gets bit confusing and they should make it more straight forward instead of making it feel a bit like a maze and in no way should tuning a instrument to cost money...Other then that i love to vibe of the app!
Easiest best guitar tuner
by vansonn on 2018/06/02 15:34
I was moving and was going to get rid of my guitar since I never learned to play it and decided to keep it and learn. I had an old electric tuner that needed new batteries so I downloaded this app. People had messed with my guitar over the years while it just sat in a corner and so it was way out of tune. With this app I was able to get it back in tune in less than a minute (first time using the app). So, needless to say, this app is extremely easy to use and very accurate as well. Big thx to whoever made it. I have been playing for about three weeks now and am progressing quickly thx to this guitar tuner.
Efficient
by Rosedust24 on 2017/03/13 19:47
It's a music tuning app, so there will be pros and cons. The fact that we do not have to go out and purchase a decent tuner should make us all happy. Like anything else, it can mess up. These are minor, like when the microphone struggles with picking up the sound waves, it will tweak out sometimes. Oh and the pop up that asks users to rate the app.. so I finally did it. Though, I'm sure it will keep popping up every now and then. Other than that, I use it just about every day. I've tried some other tuning apps, but i prefer the dark theme of GuitarTuna! And it's set up nicely, easy to see and auto tune.
Can’t just view frequency any more
by Agentmith on 2019/03/05 18:32
I’ve been using this to tune various non-standard instruments based on frequency and never had a problem until today. It keeps bringing me to the store page for some reason and it’s incredibly frustrating. Before, all I needed to do was open the app and it wouldn’t be associated with an instrument, it just measured the frequency and told me if the pitch value was correct. This is literally all I want, and I can’t find this anymore. I’ve restored purchases and all that. If this used to be something that was removed and is now a paid in-app purchase or a subscription, I’ll just ditch this and use something else, which I hope isn’t the case as I’ve used this app for years. Its a dirty practice to remove features that were included for however long then ask for more money to get them back.
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!
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!
A Breeze
by amyleemayer on 2020/11/28 13:43
I am a total newbie to the stringed instrument clan. I got a ukulele, and am taking my lessons pretty seriously, and I simply must have a tuned uke. I know you can easily buy a tuner to put on the instrument and it’s less than paying each month, but I like using the app. I tune before every session and if it’s a long sesh, I may tune again. I can hear it in my ear from years of vocal training, and Tuna helps me get that string right on pitch very easily, even fine-tuning it. No pun intended. Plus it’s right there on my phone, no searching my bag or fidgeting with another device. Quick, easy, works every time.
Good for all strings but E
by ODDSLOWEN 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.
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.
Not going good so far
by @simply._.carley on 2019/09/15 20:12
Okay so I’m 12 going on 13 and I have used this app for almost 5 months now, because my Teacher recommended me to get it, She said that it would be easy to use for me so that I could tune my guitar. And it has up until now, today I was going to practice my guitar and figured it was probably out of tune, so I got on the app and started to tune it. When I got to my low E, it kept saying it was in tune and I knew it wasn’t, I even deleted the app and reinstalled it and it still didn’t work, so until y’all get it fixed I’m going to use another app. NOT HAPPY😬😤😤
Best tuning app so far
by DKKeyes on 2017/07/15 17:24
This is my go-to tuner any time. It's not only the most easy to use and accurate tuner, it also has a lot of awesome features I love. I teach guitar and I tell all my students to download this app because of it's other awesome features - The chord library is very helpful for anyone who needs a quick reference guide and the color scheme makes it user friendly for people of all ages. The games are a fun way for people to learn and self-teach themselves technique while making it fun. The included metronome is a great perk and it's easy to use and adjust. Great job creating this app!
Amazing App
by Ebdnekek on 2019/06/19 02:46
I’ve been playing guitar for almost half a year and I can’t explain how helpful this app is. Its multitude of settings, tools, games, and songs makes this app great. The metronome has come in handy many times with slowing down a song and increasing the bpm every time I feel comfortable with it. I would 100% recommend this app to people looking to start using guitar because of its accessibility and usefulness for free, and I would recommend it for more advanced players if you’re willing to pay a dollar or two for better settings. Amazing App.
Custom tuning limit?
by JJT73 on 2021/03/20 18:13
Why are custom tunings limited to three? This is absurd. Given the storage capabilities of the device, and the fact this app is just reading saved data,I should be able to create, store, and read as many custom tunings as I want. Yet, it is limited to three. This is where I have to question the knowledge about guitars by the app creators. There are more than just three custom tunings available to the instrument, ya know? Great app otherwise, but even after having this app for YEARS, this silly limitation has never been addressed. Hence my 2 star rating. Address this please. It is beyond silly! Take it from me; also an app developer. There is very little in the way of a technical limitation that justifies this very poor design decision.
Good App
by CatFun182 on 2017/03/18 00:58
I highly recommend it. I got a guitar 5 days ago, and I used this apps games. It's $7 for all the levels in the game but it's worth it. In my opinion, he games are the easiest way to learn the chords, and each level has different chords in it. The games also tell you if you're doing the chord right which is nice to have. I prefer this app over the fingering chart book that my dad gave me! It's a good app that makes guitars easier to learn. Another thing to note is that you can also learn the bass, the ukulele, and both acoustic and electric guitars using this app.
Great for beginners
by runningman2020 on 2019/05/29 13:21
I just started learning how to play guitar and this app helps so much! Don’t have the time to find and use a tutor in person so I’ve been YouTubing songs and practicing when I can. Not only does it save you the money from buying a tuner, if you come across a chord you aren’t comfortable with or don’t know or maybe just want to see the other ways to play it, there’s a section just for chords. I enjoy this app and will be using it far into the future. Thank you to all the people who spent their time making this amazing tool!
AMAZING FAST AND ACCURATE
by Katniss57 on 2019/01/16 17:59
I used to not want to play my guitar because tuning it was such a pain, then I got this app and now it’s SO fast! Ill be with people and I’ll tune my guitar with this app then they go “woah that was fast” 10/10 recommend. I’m not an advanced guitar player though so idk if they have this or if I just couldn’t find it but I’ve seen people talk about tuning the strings beyond just standard tuning and I couldn’t find that without having to pay for it on here so that’s unfortunate but it’s a great app overall. (Behold the longest run on sentence of all time)
GREAT, but I still have some ideas
by Kira.crystal on 2017/09/25 20:09
Read a different review if you want to know all the good the bugs about this app because they cover them all. I just wanted to make a suggestion. It is already so, so useful, but it would be even more useful if there was an option to play the learning games without a time limit so that the user could just practice accuracy if they are not ready for accuracy AND speed yet. A feature that tells you what chord/note you are playing would also be helpful if you want to play a chord/note and then check if it is what you meant to play.
Fantastic- better than my other tuners
by dinonuggets217 on 2021/02/08 15:26
I love this app so much, its gotten to the point where I don’t even use my actual electronic tuners anymore because this is so much easier. I was shocked when my friend told me about it, and that it was free. I thought there was no way it could be that good if it was a free app, but I honestly stand by it and recommend it to anyone I know either starting out on guitar, or even my experienced friends. It’s so much more convenient, plus the chord lists are great for people just starting out or needing a refresher.
Only 4 because...
by Blitz766 on 2019/09/29 06:12
The pro version has a monthly fee. That’s a little ridiculous. For that I can (and will) go buy a standard 6 string tuner for less than a years cost for this app. That being said, if you have a 12 string, a bass, a mandolin, or any other stringed instrument, or multiple of those, very decent app but there are others out there without a recurring fee. If you don’t mind two bucks a month it’s WELL worth it. So, what you get for the subscription is pretty awesome. Then again the same could be said for an actual guitar tuner (device). For which you pay only once.
Extremely recommended!
by Billielilsh on 2020/03/02 03:55
Basically before I downloaded GuitarTuna I was looking for an app to tune my ukulele because I lost my other one. As I looked all the apps I downloaded charged money. But when I downloaded GuitarTuna I could tune my ukulele with no prob! There was no ads, or things telling me to buy stuff. There is a premium mode where you can pay put it toatally optional. My uke sounds perfectly tuned and this app does not jg work for uke but it also does with Guitar and I believe acoustic! Anyways to sum it all up I believe this is the best tuning app yet!
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
Yassss
by _allicorn 205___ on 2019/08/20 00:04
This app is amazing. It tunes guitars much faster then a clip tuner... but it still ends of sounding the same!!! I got back from a two month trip the other day, and this is the first time I’ve played guitar since because it was too big to bring. It took 27 minutes to tune because it was so out of tune, and at first I was irritated with the app, but I was looking through my photo app, watched a video of me playing “ode to joy” a few weeks before I left in that trip, and I realized, it WAS out of tune! This app is amazing, and I 100% reccomend.
