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.

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.

Better than expected!

I was needing a tuner, and found this. It tunes perfectly, showing if the note is too high or low. Super easy to use also!
great for quick tuning
by Dominic 0729 on 2020/05/28 22:53
pretty accurate, easy to use, and an all around good deal. 10/10
You have to fix this
by safa.saad_21 on 2020/05/28 21:01
I can’t find the notes from C5 to F6 .. this is too bad for me , does any one knows any tuner application that works for kalimba?
It works.
by xXRudedude69Xx on 2020/05/28 04:22
Just like one might hope you can indeed use this to tune a guitar to standard tuning.
Just fantastic
by Dedikated on 2020/05/28 02:14
Works! And easy to use interface! I’m tuning ukes and guitars quickly and confidently. Highly recommend!
Tuna
by Z1234546 on 2020/05/28 01:50
Great guitar tuner, was skeptical at first but proved me wrong
Smart and easy to use
by OliviaSyAe on 2020/05/27 21:50
I really like this app compared to all other tuners I’ve used. It’s efficient and plays sound bytes of what it should sound like and so you learn to be able to ear tune your instrument. Would recommend this app to anyone.
Great Tuner
by Charliecello on 2020/05/27 16:36
Simple Accurate Easy Clean design = Wonderful

Really good app

It is a really good app for strong instrument player because it has a verity of things you could use
Tuner no longer free
by Morganian on 2020/05/26 19:19
I had to delete this app and go with an alternative because the tuner suddenly became a paid feature. Too bad.
Started a paid subscription without consent
by Danriverazx6r on 2020/05/26 09:02
Downloaded this on a new device I bought and didn’t realize it automatically starts a 5 dollar a month “pro” version charge. Be careful when downloading.
Very useful

BEST APP EVER!!!!!
by Kasidy Devil Dog on 2020/05/25 16:48
I just got a guitar for my birthday and this app and it’s lovely, easy, and makes it way more fun to play the guitar it’s just the best
Amazing!
by koliver8908 on 2020/05/25 13:56
I’m just starting out on a ukulele and have never been good at tuning in the past, but this app is amazing and extremely helpful. I have yet to come across a problem with and in my opinion is more helpful than the a foul tuner I bought for the ukulele lol. Can’t recommend enough, I’ve heard it does other things besides tuning but I haven’t gotten that far yet lol
The best
by Kinners kitchen on 2020/05/25 13:11
This is seriously so easy and efficient finding a free tuner wasn’t easy and this is the most amazing. It also offers days access to other apps to help you improve on your skills which I found very helpful.
BEST
by g2 foreverrrr on 2020/05/24 22:16
suuuper easy totally recommend
Definitely the best tuner app
by Eel brö Vitamin on 2020/05/23 04:27
I recommend this to all of my music students. Very intuitive and user friendly
Amazing
by olivecoop on 2020/05/23 01:03
I didn’t realize that it had a metronome too! Great quality and is amazing for 6 string acoustic guitars!
Do not recommend
by HackerSlacken on 2020/05/22 20:40
This app is garbage. It says my string were tuned to low. So I upped it and not only is it out of time still, it snapped the string and the strings were brand new.
JESUS IS KING
by TheMotherflippin'MuffinMan on 2020/05/22 18:24
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU and this guitar app is super helpful, like i could learn so much with it just though persistence and practice
Surprised Me 👍
by Jessica Baily-critic on 2020/05/22 16:30
I knew absolutely nothing about guitar tuning before this app, and I thought I couldn’t do it. But I found out it’s just so easy, especially for beginners like me. I definitely recommend it!
O yea o yea o yea

Great guitar tuner
Ugh
by bby2020 on 2020/05/21 23:53
Ugh You have to pay for the games, ITS NOT FREE
thank you
by featherweight207 on 2020/05/21 22:12
I was having trouble learning how to tune and this helps a lot while I figure it out
Just learning

Love it!
First review I’ve ever written
by Bmoney1646 on 2020/05/21 00:14
Amazing Simple Easy Practical Fun Educational No problems supporting this
DO NOT USE FOR BANJO
by Bumpinbumpkin on 2020/05/20 22:19
Downloaded this to use for banjo and it read way low on one of my strings and so I tightened it and it snapped. Brand new banjo. The app makers should cover my repair cost of you ask me. Maybe spend a few bucks to get an actual tuner, not this piece of junk app.
Awesome app
by CHUCKLES!!!!!! (ME) on 2020/05/20 00:07
I just started learning the ukulele and I can’t always ask my instructor if my ukulele is in tune. This app was really helpful because ukuleles get out of tune really easily. Great app I definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn a instrument like this the ukulele, guitar, bass or another string instrument similar to that.

I enjoy the app! And it’s free!
Minor fixes, major change
by K_Forbes on 2020/05/19 01:16
Only using this app as a tuner—did not purchase premium features. Tuner works great except for two minor details that other reviewers have also mentioned. The first is that the G string is very difficult to tune—the app constantly misidentifies the string as high E and of course tells me that it’s too low. End up having to tune that string by ear. The second is that if the volume on my phone is not turned down when I start to tune, the phone speaker creates feedback with the mic and doesn’t tune correctly. If those two things could be fixed, this would bump my review up to five stars easily.
Great tuner
by Taylor Lexus on 2020/05/18 04:49
Easy to use very accurate
Free and effective
by Mikael Bruck on 2020/05/17 17:36
I love the auto tune feature to easily tune my guitar
Great, but...
by Nicholus Mizzer, qwerty 0 on 2020/05/16 22:05
Great for tuning, but to do lessons, they give you a free trial, and then they make it so you can’t continue the course without buying the full thing.
Woah
by Kimmy~Chan on 2020/05/15 12:42
Okay so this app is actually really good, I am just learning ukulele, and I was having trouble tuning it and this app helped a ton, plus the games have helped me learn some of the different chords.
Great standard tuner
by BassFool on 2020/05/15 03:12
Ok let me start by saying if you are looking for a standard tuning app this one is great. Now that I have that out of the way... if you are looking to tune a half step down or any alternate tuning this is not the tool for you. $4.99 a month for anything outside of standard? Go find yourself a real tuner and tune however you want. I would most likely pay a $20 one time fee to unlock all this app can do. But $5 per month subscription is Absolutely insane.
ONLY PROBLEM
by Mighooch12865 on 2020/05/14 22:42
My only problem with this app is the audio feed back when I tune a string. WE DO NOT NEED AUDIO FEEDBACK (the tone alert upon tuning your string correctly) when we are tuning! It disrupts everything for me! This causing a plethora of problems and makes it even harder to tune my guitar when the app emits a sound while it’s also trying to listen for “tune.” It’s asinine. Every time I use the app I have to volume down so I can correctly tune my guitar. If anything this app is only good to put your phone on vibrate.
Best app
by justjazzgyg on 2020/05/14 21:42
Downloaded so many apps before this one, and honestly don’t even waste your time. Everything you need, you find here
I’m impressed, THE BEST FOR BEGINNERS!!!
by 𝙋𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙡𝙚𝙨 on 2020/05/14 17:51
I’m a beginner (like, I can’t even get 1 note), and I was expecting a HUGE COMPLECATED MESS, and, it wasn’t!, but I got something that was so simple, and even without the in app purchases i can still tune my gutair in perfection.

Works perfectly
by Bignigklopblip on 2020/05/11 08:02
Literally just a great guitar tuner like anything you would buy in a store for 15 bucks but it’s free and you’ll never be without it as long as you have your phone. Great app🤟
Since when did guitar tuners need a subscription?
by cptnslug on 2020/05/11 07:39
No one time payment option. Pay 5$ a month as if there weren’t enough companies trying to siphon money through subscriptions. 60$ a year for a tuner. Nope!
Hahahahaha

i love this app it makes tuning so much easier especially for first timers itll make it so much easier for them to understand so i love this app and i would heavily recommend it to anyone its worth spending the 15$ i think maybe less one payment and never again you get thousands of tunes so great app in my opinion

Mainly use it to tune my guitar but it does have some real nice games to understand chords
I’m disappointed, please fix
by Fük you on 2020/05/06 19:35
I’ve used this app for years and have loved it, I’ve gotten a lot of help from this app an so I bought the supposed one time premium package but when I updated my app after taking a break from playing I see all of my previous tuners and data are gone this is something that needs to be corrected.
thanks a lot (i’m being sarcastic)
by ilovestarbucks22 on 2020/05/06 19:18
i’d just like to thank this app FOR BREAKING MY GUITAR!!!! it was perfect until it said i needed to tighten it even more and it snapped my G string. SO THANK YOU. not to mention the purple mark going around my hand from where the string hit me. this guitar was given to me by one of my close friends who passed away from cancer, so thank you so much for breaking it.
It’s the best

by CatShoon on 2020/05/05 20:37
Like everyone else in the reviews, five stars all the way! It’s wonderful, it’s free, and works very easily. I really recommend this for beginner guitarists. Super easy to use, and I use it all the time. Download this if you need an easy tuner! And no, I’m not a generated response. This reply comes from a real person.

I really love this app. I can practice my chords , tune my guitar, and use a metronome all in one place. I have one problem tho. I really wish there was a left handed option. I play left handed guitar and it’s hard to paractice chords on this app
Love this app

I absolutely love this app but I think they need to look at what happened to me

So today I was in this app and it was giving me problems trying to tune my guitar. The notes that would not tune were B and G.

Must download!
by AlyssaBunnyWallace on 2020/04/24 20:07
This app is the best app ever! I needed a tuner because I am too lazy to tune a guitar by myself. I was surprised with the guitar games and chord library, and more! My band mate needed to tune her ukulele and there was a ukulele tuner! Not just that, but other kinds too! It even teaches you how to play chords! That is where I learned a few chords such as, D#maj7! It is AMAZING for experienced and beginners! You must download this app!
Lifesaver
by ᕼIᑭᑭIE on 2020/04/24 18:45
This is the best app out there! I’m a beginner so I don’t know what is too high or not but this really helps!!! I highly recommend this app for anyone who needs help with guitars (of any type)! Great job
Who needs an actual tuner
by IvyWinters555 on 2020/04/24 18:02
Bro this is amazing generally I don’t use apps to tune my guitar because most of the time they don’t work but after using this app I kinda just want to un-tune my guitar just to tune it with the app so yeah if you have a guitar I 100% recommend you downloading this app
Awesome
by Bluethebabble on 2020/04/24 08:05
I’ve been using this app for about 5 years now, never had a problem with it. It’s easy to work with , gets the job done and is more that just a tuner . Great job 👍🏼

Absolutely perfect 😃👌🏼
by Rolling hamster on 2020/04/23 18:07
I am a beginner guitarist and I was in need of a guitar tuner. I saw guitar tuna as the first recommendation when I searched guitar tuner in the App Store. I downloaded it, and it worked perfectly. No hassle for signing up and junk like that and it’s completely free. It is easy to work and is perfect for anyone new to any string instrument. ( yeah they also have tuners for bass violin and other stuff. They’re awsome)
Awesome tool
by the schaffers on 2020/04/23 17:54
Kids today don’t know how lucky they are with these apps! Such a time saver for the beginner and beyond... I suppose you can train ur ear at some point but this app gets u ready to start playing with confidence
Perfect

Terrible app
by Get it it get on 2020/04/22 21:40
The app kept saying the chord was too deep so I kept tightening it. Well long story short the string snapped and scratched up my guitar. Do not use this app.
I love the app

by coconutbuttermilk on 2020/04/22 19:38
This guitar is a lot more accurate and easier to use than a standard ukulele/guitar tuner. It’s also good for beginners too because it tells you which direction to tune it in, or if it's getting better or worse. I would definitely recommend this app to musicians no matter what skill level.
Secret weapon
by Bggggeeeedd on 2018/04/15 01:20
I downloaded this app thinking it was just a standard guitar tuner. I used it for about 6 months just as a tuner. I needed to tune a 12 string acoustic for my dad and didn't have a 12 string tuner. I did a little exploring in this app and low and behold I found it actually has a setting just for 12 strings! It cut the time of tuning from ear to doing it off the app from 10 minutes + by ear to barely any time with using the app. So as I realized I hadn't takin advantage of the app as much as I should I started exploring even more. It's a gold mine of knowledge. Not only is it a tuner (best app tuner I've used personally) but it also has a metronome , games , chords, a plethora of instruments to choose from and it's SUPER easy to navigate. I got my dad an iPhone (first iPhone he's 65) and he always complained about how it was hard to use. I showed him the GuitarTuna app and he hasn't ever had any confusion with how to use it. I think that says a lot of how instinctive the user interface is if my dad can do it :P all in all I can't recommend this app enough. I literally tell all my guitar player friends to try it and not one has said anything negative about it. I love it! I can't imagine how the developers can make it better than it already is but something tells me they will! Thanks for making an awesome app. From one musician to another, THANKS!!! Cheers! -Brad.
I really like this app!!
by shorty0979 on 2017/10/24 17:08
I've never personally tuned a guitar,- I've always had to have someone tune it for me when I briefly owned several guitars many years ago. At the time, I had bought them for my (now) ex husband so he was the one who always tuned them. But unfortunately, when I eventually left him- He got rid of them all instead of giving them to me since I paid for all of them. So needless to say, I've never really had the chance to learn how to play much at all. Recently, I was given another guitar from my sister, & knew I needed to learn how to tune it so I downloaded this app. I find it extremely easy to use & very helpful. Now I can tune my guitar (& maybe??) FINALLY learn how to play like I've always wanted too!! I LOVE Music & have to listen to it daily, it's my "Escape" from the world, my life, & all the problems or stresses that I might face daily. I've always wanted to learn how to play for as long as I can remember, so that I could eventually learn to play (at least some??) of the songs I love to listen to everyday or maybe even some that I grew up listening to as a kid. I'm thankful for this app so I can begin my journey towards reaching my goal/dream of learning how to play guitar & music. Thank you for making this app so very easy!! I Love It!!
Versatile and very usable
by Charles Bailey ~ on 2017/07/09 16:09
The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.
Nice app definitely recommended
by Xx_DonutEater_xX on 2018/01/19 20:29
Hello everyone reading this. This is an app that made my life so much easier. I started playing guitar 4 months ago and I didn’t know anything about the guitar. So I needed someone to tune my guitar for me or at least help me (My grandpa knows how to play and tune guitar. He was pretty young when he started playing on it. But I can’t always ask him to help me). So this app was just perfect for me. It’s free. It shows you all the chords. It’s precise while tuning. And it has little mini-games as well (although if you want more games you need to pay. But it’s pretty reasonable price). So the bottom line than. If you want the basics of the basics on guitar this is the app that will provide you with anything. If you want to learn more you need to pay (But I think their Yousician app is much better if you wanna “master” the guitar). And the best thing is that the app is beautiful, it has a good tuner and all the chords you will probably ever need. (This was kinda too big of a bottom line 🤣) Thank you for reading!
I love this app!

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.
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.
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!
The King of the Field!!
by Joshua of Oregon on 2019/03/31 16:48
From all of the tunner apps on the market I’m only reviewing the ones that are free. Being a real musician, and currently having zero to no money, when I type into google ‘tuner apps for free’ I’m assuming the results are going to be representative of free tuner apps.....not apps that are free until you want to tune with them.... Apparently that’s what most app development people assuming is going to work. What they don’t understand is that when I go through all of the effort of finding your app, downloading your app, installing your app, opening your app, and learning how to use your app....only to be greeted with “you must purchase this app in order to get it to work…They not only have lost a customer… They’ve made an enemy for life… I actually have a special spot in my password black book it’s labeled poison… In on this page or only the names of the developers who have wasted my time by misrepresenting their free app… This app, is a breathe of fresh air. You can actually use this app to tune your guitar for free… If you pay additional amount it’ll do a lot more cool stuff for you, but if you don’t have the money to pay for the upgrades, it still functions fantastically as a tuner … Four stars… A+ plus… Way to go guys you’re the best
Best for learning guitar
by Lazy Crative on 2017/09/29 21:12
Have you ever taken a class where the instructor not only allowed smart phones but insisted you download a specific app? Last year at my college I took a guitar class for non music major with no previous experience in guitar. It is called guitar class. So there were other students in it. It was 1 credit hour & I got an A. If you pass that with at least a C you can only take it once. I'm currently in what os called guitar elective. That is a one on one lesson in his office. Elective guitar can be taken as many times as the student wants. The pendulum is crucial to learning & the tuning is crucial to just using a guitar. This music teacher could teach a rhesus monkey to play the ukulele. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the guitar whether they are a beginner or a pro stadium musician.
More like a blessing than an app
by TheTenthDoctorIsSexy on 2018/02/11 03:16
My friend introduced me to this app and since then, this app has been a blessing in my life. With it, I am able to tune my ukulele, violin, guitar, and my best friend's cello. It is so easy to use and is very precise. Even with the free version (which is what I have) there is so much you can do. Not only can you tune your instrument with this app, but you can also use the tools in the app such as the metronome or the chords tool where it shows you the fingering for different chords on the ukulele and guitar. It also has an option in the chords tool where you can listen to the chord to make sure you are playing it correctly. Overall: I rate this a 6/5. This is probably the most useful app I have downloaded on my phone and it is so easy to use. Love love love it!!!
Great, 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.
Great app, extremely useful.
by MLGsniperclanminecrafter on 2017/12/31 19:56
When I started playing Ukulele, I could never keep it in tune, it was a pain, and I had no idea where to start, so when I started learning guitar, I was even more overwhelmed. When I was playing one night with my horrendous sounding guitar, a friend told me about this app. I downloaded it, and almost instantly, my guitar and ukulele were sounding great. A year later, this app is still my go-to tuner, and although I do know how to tune without an app or tuner, this app truly helps me when I’m not quite sure. I recommend this to any guitarist, whether you’re a beginner, an amateur, or a pro. Even if you have a clip on tuner, this app is great for when you leave it at home, or can’t find it. 10/10 would download again.
great 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.
Works very well
by SevinStorey on 2018/04/09 03:11
As a young boy (in my early 20’s) I picked up my first hand me down flat top and bought a chord chart poster from Walmart and self taught myself how to strum chords enough to eventually start playing parties and small bars. I never did learn how to tune however but I can definitely tell when she’s out. I would always have to ask a friend or count on a small tuner that was easy to misplace or lose but now I can do it on my phone which I always have in my pocket and its extremely accurate as I’ve checked it on tuners and with class act guitar players including myself. There’s no bothersome pop ups (thank God) and it never asks me to buy anything,(again thank God) or I would drop it from my phone. Great deal for anybody out there.
So good i wrote a review.
by Sbpoodoo312 on 2018/02/11 07:26
Making the switch to trying life as an all digital, all mobile, iPhone based guitar(enthus)i(a)st ... giving up tubes and pedals for simplicity’s sake. I am trying out many dozens of guitar apps as a result — including tuners — and this one definitely stands out. I wish alternate tunings came free, but its worth the (minimal) price if you need them. Many of the apps i have used have tuners built in to them but — even when i am actively using just such an app — i still find myself switching to this one, and honestly i couldnt tell exactly quite why. Maybe its the fengshui of the layout but this app just has that all around quality feeling that makes it rise above the rest. Yeah, its just a tuner, but it nails the execution.
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!
Loved it. No complaints.
by kaejisan on 2018/09/10 01:00
I love this app. I’ll be honest, I’m not musically inclined. I have no sense of rhythm, I can’t come close to reading sheet music, and I was just about done dreaming of being a musician (without any success). I wanted to let myself down easy. However, I found this app, and considering the good reviews, I figured I’d give it a shot. I finally managed to tune the guitar I hadn’t touched since fourth grade when I got it, and even my sister’s crappy Five-Below ukulele. This app works wonders. I even learned a few chords. Crazy. Unfortunately, I cannot access the shop to unlock any new chords. That has nothing to do with the app, though. That’s my problem, haha. However, this app inspired me to learn a new skill. While I’m going to have to go online for new chords, I need to say that this app set me up for success — so far. Again, I’m no professional. I’m a high school freshman whose friend said you can get girls with guitar. I’m a 5’1 ginger, so I need all the help I can get. Maybe I can be the new Ed Sheeran? Probably not, but at least now someone can find some appeal in my personality :) Thank you, GuitarTuna! -Kadison
Overall great, but missing a few things
by Cece8289 on 2018/11/20 17:21
Let me start by saying this is a REALLY good app. It’s very accurate, it saves me tons of time with tuning, and it has ALMOST every tuning under the sun to choose from. That being said, for more advanced players who are using less popular tunings like drop G, drop G#, drop F, etc., you’re going to have a really tough time because those aren’t an option. There IS an option to custom tune a 6 string which is great, but does also have some limitations. But I really do wish there was an option to do custom tuning for a 7 string because they only offer standard and drop A for 7 strings (yeah, they’re the most commonly used, but not the only ways to tune a 7 string). But otherwise, really well made app!
Good accuracy
by Criticbuster on 2018/07/06 07:49
I don’t usually write reviews about apps, since I find it very helpful to read about others experiences with apps, maybe mine can help people as well. I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, so I was just looking for an app that could tune the guitar accurately. I love the fact that the app has so many separate parts that you can add to it. I don’t need all the other stuff, other players may enjoy the chord library, metronome, and the practice sections it has. Only thing I would like to see is the standard guitar interface have the ability to tune chromatically instead of having no guitar image at all. But great app!
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
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.
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 !!!
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.
Can’t just view frequency any more
by Agentmith on 2019/03/05 18:32
I’ve been using this to tune various non-standard instruments based on frequency and never had a problem until today. It keeps bringing me to the store page for some reason and it’s incredibly frustrating. Before, all I needed to do was open the app and it wouldn’t be associated with an instrument, it just measured the frequency and told me if the pitch value was correct. This is literally all I want, and I can’t find this anymore. I’ve restored purchases and all that. If this used to be something that was removed and is now a paid in-app purchase or a subscription, I’ll just ditch this and use something else, which I hope isn’t the case as I’ve used this app for years. Its a dirty practice to remove features that were included for however long then ask for more money to get them back.
Efficient
by Rosedust24 on 2017/03/13 19:47
It's a music tuning app, so there will be pros and cons. The fact that we do not have to go out and purchase a decent tuner should make us all happy. Like anything else, it can mess up. These are minor, like when the microphone struggles with picking up the sound waves, it will tweak out sometimes. Oh and the pop up that asks users to rate the app.. so I finally did it. Though, I'm sure it will keep popping up every now and then. Other than that, I use it just about every day. I've tried some other tuning apps, but i prefer the dark theme of GuitarTuna! And it's set up nicely, easy to see and auto tune.
New update lags behind
by Ultistat on 2017/01/28 10:03
I've used this app for several months now, and it's been great so far. Great as a chord reference guide, great for its primary tuning capabilities. No complaints prior to the most recent update. However, as of this update made available several days ago, I have noticed that the swiping mechanism within the app seems delayed. It doesn't feel as responsive as it was before, and there is a lag once you swipe until the panel stops moving. This is a nuisance, requiring multiple attempts to do something that once required one smooth swipe across the screen. Moreover, the chord diagrams seem significantly smaller (although with higher resolutions) than before, making them less impactful than before. It would be great if these issues could be resolved, as I love using this app and will continue to use this app in spite of the minor inconveniences sourced from this update. Also, it would be cool if guitar scales were also available within the app, I would find it super helpful in my quest towards guitar proficiency. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see these changes made soon!
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!
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.
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!
GREAT, but I still have some ideas
by Kira.crystal on 2017/09/25 20:09
Read a different review if you want to know all the good the bugs about this app because they cover them all. I just wanted to make a suggestion. It is already so, so useful, but it would be even more useful if there was an option to play the learning games without a time limit so that the user could just practice accuracy if they are not ready for accuracy AND speed yet. A feature that tells you what chord/note you are playing would also be helpful if you want to play a chord/note and then check if it is what you meant to play.
AMAZING FAST AND ACCURATE
by Katniss57 on 2019/01/16 17:59
I used to not want to play my guitar because tuning it was such a pain, then I got this app and now it’s SO fast! Ill be with people and I’ll tune my guitar with this app then they go “woah that was fast” 10/10 recommend. I’m not an advanced guitar player though so idk if they have this or if I just couldn’t find it but I’ve seen people talk about tuning the strings beyond just standard tuning and I couldn’t find that without having to pay for it on here so that’s unfortunate but it’s a great app overall. (Behold the longest run on sentence of all time)
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!

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!

In the last 55 years or so, Ive used every kind of tuner on the market and ended up thinking the Snark was the best of them all. The love affair lasted until I went to a picnic and sat down with a couple of friends to play a little. Dead battery, no Snark. I downloaded your app and haven’t looked back. We always have our phones in our pockets, so instant access to perfect tuning. Ever see a used guitar for sale in a shop that you can’t really tell anything about because every kid in the store has “tuned” it? No problem now. Thanks! Pap Danger
Good but one flaw
by Pointe_up on 2019/01/27 23:30
I just recently got a ukulele, and I’ve been looking for an app that would help me tune quicker than by ear. I found this app and I was like jackpot. I got into it and it tuned my ukulele really well, and then I noticed the game feature. I was like, cool! So got on there and realized that there wasn’t a ukulele option for the games!! Maybe there is and I just can’t find it, but I can’t find a way to get it to change to ukulele!! If you give an option to tune a ukulele, then give an option to do games as a ukulele!! I’m a little bit frustrated, but other than that it’s a really good tuner!!
Very reliable tuner
by theNewPaul on 2020/02/08 21:18
This is a great app! Very easy to use and very reliable, if you are just starting out, you can take a big worry off your mind, by getting in tune quickly and easily with this app. You will enjoy your guitar playing more if you are playing in tune, and you will be much more likely to stick with it. Very important! This is one case where the technology improves things in a significant way. I also have friends who play guitar professionally, and use this app right before a gig! Highly recommended!

This app is amazing. It tunes guitars much faster then a clip tuner... but it still ends of sounding the same!!! I got back from a two month trip the other day, and this is the first time I’ve played guitar since because it was too big to bring. It took 27 minutes to tune because it was so out of tune, and at first I was irritated with the app, but I was looking through my photo app, watched a video of me playing “ode to joy” a few weeks before I left in that trip, and I realized, it WAS out of tune! This app is amazing, and I 100% reccomend.
Love it!!!
by Kit_Kat__ on 2019/01/13 03:29
I have a ukulele and a guitar that both haven’t been used to much so they’re both quick to go out of tune. I’ve used other tuners before, but I love this one! It’s simple to use and great for beginners! I’ve taken lessons and have practice with my instruments, but sometimes I space out a bit and forget which notch tunes which string, but this tuner shows which notch to use, which string to play, and plays the note once before you start so you can figure out how bad/good your instrument’s string is! Totally love it and recommend!!!
Killer tuning app
by Alter Bridge Freak on 2018/09/11 17:22
Well to start this off there are many times as we all know you get to a gig and your Snark is at home sitting on your acoustic guitar. This app has saved me plenty of times and well worth not having to go out and buy a Nother Snark over and over and over because you forgot it at home LOL. Not only that but I have several Tunings that I like to be in occasionally and this app allows you to store your own which is an amazing feature other apps do not have. You got to have your tuna and eat too!! Thanks! Chris
Minor fixes, major change
by K_Forbes on 2020/05/19 01:16
Only using this app as a tuner—did not purchase premium features. Tuner works great except for two minor details that other reviewers have also mentioned. The first is that the G string is very difficult to tune—the app constantly misidentifies the string as high E and of course tells me that it’s too low. End up having to tune that string by ear. The second is that if the volume on my phone is not turned down when I start to tune, the phone speaker creates feedback with the mic and doesn’t tune correctly. If those two things could be fixed, this would bump my review up to five stars easily.

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
Better than expected!
by mippp0917 on 2020/05/29 17:38
I was needing a tuner, and found this. It tunes perfectly, showing if the note is too high or low. Super easy to use also!
great for quick tuning
by Dominic 0729 on 2020/05/28 22:53
pretty accurate, easy to use, and an all around good deal. 10/10
You have to fix this
by safa.saad_21 on 2020/05/28 21:01
I can’t find the notes from C5 to F6 .. this is too bad for me , does any one knows any tuner application that works for kalimba?
It works.
by xXRudedude69Xx on 2020/05/28 04:22
Just like one might hope you can indeed use this to tune a guitar to standard tuning.
Just fantastic
by Dedikated on 2020/05/28 02:14
Works! And easy to use interface! I’m tuning ukes and guitars quickly and confidently. Highly recommend!
Tuna
by Z1234546 on 2020/05/28 01:50
Great guitar tuner, was skeptical at first but proved me wrong
Smart and easy to use
by OliviaSyAe on 2020/05/27 21:50
I really like this app compared to all other tuners I’ve used. It’s efficient and plays sound bytes of what it should sound like and so you learn to be able to ear tune your instrument. Would recommend this app to anyone.
Great Tuner
by Charliecello on 2020/05/27 16:36
Simple Accurate Easy Clean design = Wonderful

It is a really good app for strong instrument player because it has a verity of things you could use
Tuner no longer free
by Morganian on 2020/05/26 19:19
I had to delete this app and go with an alternative because the tuner suddenly became a paid feature. Too bad.
Started a paid subscription without consent
by Danriverazx6r on 2020/05/26 09:02
Downloaded this on a new device I bought and didn’t realize it automatically starts a 5 dollar a month “pro” version charge. Be careful when downloading.
Very useful

BEST APP EVER!!!!!
by Kasidy Devil Dog on 2020/05/25 16:48
I just got a guitar for my birthday and this app and it’s lovely, easy, and makes it way more fun to play the guitar it’s just the best
Amazing!
by koliver8908 on 2020/05/25 13:56
I’m just starting out on a ukulele and have never been good at tuning in the past, but this app is amazing and extremely helpful. I have yet to come across a problem with and in my opinion is more helpful than the a foul tuner I bought for the ukulele lol. Can’t recommend enough, I’ve heard it does other things besides tuning but I haven’t gotten that far yet lol
The best
by Kinners kitchen on 2020/05/25 13:11
This is seriously so easy and efficient finding a free tuner wasn’t easy and this is the most amazing. It also offers days access to other apps to help you improve on your skills which I found very helpful.
BEST
by g2 foreverrrr on 2020/05/24 22:16
suuuper easy totally recommend
Definitely the best tuner app

Amazing
by olivecoop on 2020/05/23 01:03
I didn’t realize that it had a metronome too! Great quality and is amazing for 6 string acoustic guitars!
Do not recommend
by HackerSlacken on 2020/05/22 20:40
This app is garbage. It says my string were tuned to low. So I upped it and not only is it out of time still, it snapped the string and the strings were brand new.
JESUS IS KING
by TheMotherflippin'MuffinMan on 2020/05/22 18:24
THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS WITHIN YOU and this guitar app is super helpful, like i could learn so much with it just though persistence and practice
Surprised Me 👍
by Jessica Baily-critic on 2020/05/22 16:30
I knew absolutely nothing about guitar tuning before this app, and I thought I couldn’t do it. But I found out it’s just so easy, especially for beginners like me. I definitely recommend it!
O yea o yea o yea

First review I’ve ever written
by Bmoney1646 on 2020/05/21 00:14
Amazing Simple Easy Practical Fun Educational No problems supporting this
DO NOT USE FOR BANJO
by Bumpinbumpkin on 2020/05/20 22:19
Downloaded this to use for banjo and it read way low on one of my strings and so I tightened it and it snapped. Brand new banjo. The app makers should cover my repair cost of you ask me. Maybe spend a few bucks to get an actual tuner, not this piece of junk app.
Awesome app
by CHUCKLES!!!!!! (ME) on 2020/05/20 00:07
I just started learning the ukulele and I can’t always ask my instructor if my ukulele is in tune. This app was really helpful because ukuleles get out of tune really easily. Great app I definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn a instrument like this the ukulele, guitar, bass or another string instrument similar to that.

I love the auto tune feature to easily tune my guitar
Great, but...
by Nicholus Mizzer, qwerty 0 on 2020/05/16 22:05
Great for tuning, but to do lessons, they give you a free trial, and then they make it so you can’t continue the course without buying the full thing.
Woah
by Kimmy~Chan on 2020/05/15 12:42
Okay so this app is actually really good, I am just learning ukulele, and I was having trouble tuning it and this app helped a ton, plus the games have helped me learn some of the different chords.
Great standard tuner
by BassFool on 2020/05/15 03:12
Ok let me start by saying if you are looking for a standard tuning app this one is great. Now that I have that out of the way... if you are looking to tune a half step down or any alternate tuning this is not the tool for you. $4.99 a month for anything outside of standard? Go find yourself a real tuner and tune however you want. I would most likely pay a $20 one time fee to unlock all this app can do. But $5 per month subscription is Absolutely insane.
ONLY PROBLEM
by Mighooch12865 on 2020/05/14 22:42
My only problem with this app is the audio feed back when I tune a string. WE DO NOT NEED AUDIO FEEDBACK (the tone alert upon tuning your string correctly) when we are tuning! It disrupts everything for me! This causing a plethora of problems and makes it even harder to tune my guitar when the app emits a sound while it’s also trying to listen for “tune.” It’s asinine. Every time I use the app I have to volume down so I can correctly tune my guitar. If anything this app is only good to put your phone on vibrate.
Best app
by justjazzgyg on 2020/05/14 21:42
Downloaded so many apps before this one, and honestly don’t even waste your time. Everything you need, you find here
I’m impressed, THE BEST FOR BEGINNERS!!!
by 𝙋𝙞𝙘𝙠𝙡𝙚𝙨 on 2020/05/14 17:51
I’m a beginner (like, I can’t even get 1 note), and I was expecting a HUGE COMPLECATED MESS, and, it wasn’t!, but I got something that was so simple, and even without the in app purchases i can still tune my gutair in perfection.

by Bignigklopblip on 2020/05/11 08:02
Literally just a great guitar tuner like anything you would buy in a store for 15 bucks but it’s free and you’ll never be without it as long as you have your phone. Great app🤟
Since when did guitar tuners need a subscription?
by cptnslug on 2020/05/11 07:39
No one time payment option. Pay 5$ a month as if there weren’t enough companies trying to siphon money through subscriptions. 60$ a year for a tuner. Nope!
Hahahahaha

I’m disappointed, please fix
by Fük you on 2020/05/06 19:35
I’ve used this app for years and have loved it, I’ve gotten a lot of help from this app an so I bought the supposed one time premium package but when I updated my app after taking a break from playing I see all of my previous tuners and data are gone this is something that needs to be corrected.
thanks a lot (i’m being sarcastic)
by ilovestarbucks22 on 2020/05/06 19:18
i’d just like to thank this app FOR BREAKING MY GUITAR!!!! it was perfect until it said i needed to tighten it even more and it snapped my G string. SO THANK YOU. not to mention the purple mark going around my hand from where the string hit me. this guitar was given to me by one of my close friends who passed away from cancer, so thank you so much for breaking it.
It’s the best

Like everyone else in the reviews, five stars all the way! It’s wonderful, it’s free, and works very easily. I really recommend this for beginner guitarists. Super easy to use, and I use it all the time. Download this if you need an easy tuner! And no, I’m not a generated response. This reply comes from a real person.

I absolutely love this app but I think they need to look at what happened to me

So today I was in this app and it was giving me problems trying to tune my guitar. The notes that would not tune were B and G.

by AlyssaBunnyWallace on 2020/04/24 20:07
This app is the best app ever! I needed a tuner because I am too lazy to tune a guitar by myself. I was surprised with the guitar games and chord library, and more! My band mate needed to tune her ukulele and there was a ukulele tuner! Not just that, but other kinds too! It even teaches you how to play chords! That is where I learned a few chords such as, D#maj7! It is AMAZING for experienced and beginners! You must download this app!
Lifesaver

Bro this is amazing generally I don’t use apps to tune my guitar because most of the time they don’t work but after using this app I kinda just want to un-tune my guitar just to tune it with the app so yeah if you have a guitar I 100% recommend you downloading this app
Awesome
by Bluethebabble on 2020/04/24 08:05
I’ve been using this app for about 5 years now, never had a problem with it. It’s easy to work with , gets the job done and is more that just a tuner . Great job 👍🏼
Loading
by vic nunez on 2020/04/23 23:24
I’ve used this app many times in the past but the tumer now isn’t working and I even deleted the app then downloaded it again and again it won’t stop loading I’m very disappointed because this is the only one I know how to use
Absolutely perfect 😃👌🏼
by Rolling hamster on 2020/04/23 18:07
I am a beginner guitarist and I was in need of a guitar tuner. I saw guitar tuna as the first recommendation when I searched guitar tuner in the App Store. I downloaded it, and it worked perfectly. No hassle for signing up and junk like that and it’s completely free. It is easy to work and is perfect for anyone new to any string instrument. ( yeah they also have tuners for bass violin and other stuff. They’re awsome)
Awesome tool
by the schaffers on 2020/04/23 17:54
Kids today don’t know how lucky they are with these apps! Such a time saver for the beginner and beyond... I suppose you can train ur ear at some point but this app gets u ready to start playing with confidence
Perfect
by BrTheodoro on 2020/04/23 05:15
Works pretty well...
Terrible app
by Get it it get on 2020/04/22 21:40
The app kept saying the chord was too deep so I kept tightening it. Well long story short the string snapped and scratched up my guitar. Do not use this app.
I love the app
by bemons scar on 2020/04/22 20:28
But I’ve been trying to learn how to play and it’s help me with chords but I wish it had more openly available but great app

Its good
by coconutbuttermilk on 2020/04/22 19:38
This guitar is a lot more accurate and easier to use than a standard ukulele/guitar tuner. It’s also good for beginners too because it tells you which direction to tune it in, or if it's getting better or worse. I would definitely recommend this app to musicians no matter what skill level.
Secret weapon
by Bggggeeeedd on 2018/04/15 01:20
I downloaded this app thinking it was just a standard guitar tuner. I used it for about 6 months just as a tuner. I needed to tune a 12 string acoustic for my dad and didn't have a 12 string tuner. I did a little exploring in this app and low and behold I found it actually has a setting just for 12 strings! It cut the time of tuning from ear to doing it off the app from 10 minutes + by ear to barely any time with using the app. So as I realized I hadn't takin advantage of the app as much as I should I started exploring even more. It's a gold mine of knowledge. Not only is it a tuner (best app tuner I've used personally) but it also has a metronome , games , chords, a plethora of instruments to choose from and it's SUPER easy to navigate. I got my dad an iPhone (first iPhone he's 65) and he always complained about how it was hard to use. I showed him the GuitarTuna app and he hasn't ever had any confusion with how to use it. I think that says a lot of how instinctive the user interface is if my dad can do it :P all in all I can't recommend this app enough. I literally tell all my guitar player friends to try it and not one has said anything negative about it. I love it! I can't imagine how the developers can make it better than it already is but something tells me they will! Thanks for making an awesome app. From one musician to another, THANKS!!! Cheers! -Brad.
I really like this app!!
by shorty0979 on 2017/10/24 17:08
I've never personally tuned a guitar,- I've always had to have someone tune it for me when I briefly owned several guitars many years ago. At the time, I had bought them for my (now) ex husband so he was the one who always tuned them. But unfortunately, when I eventually left him- He got rid of them all instead of giving them to me since I paid for all of them. So needless to say, I've never really had the chance to learn how to play much at all. Recently, I was given another guitar from my sister, & knew I needed to learn how to tune it so I downloaded this app. I find it extremely easy to use & very helpful. Now I can tune my guitar (& maybe??) FINALLY learn how to play like I've always wanted too!! I LOVE Music & have to listen to it daily, it's my "Escape" from the world, my life, & all the problems or stresses that I might face daily. I've always wanted to learn how to play for as long as I can remember, so that I could eventually learn to play (at least some??) of the songs I love to listen to everyday or maybe even some that I grew up listening to as a kid. I'm thankful for this app so I can begin my journey towards reaching my goal/dream of learning how to play guitar & music. Thank you for making this app so very easy!! I Love It!!
Versatile and very usable
by Charles Bailey ~ on 2017/07/09 16:09
The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.
Nice app definitely recommended
by Xx_DonutEater_xX on 2018/01/19 20:29
Hello everyone reading this. This is an app that made my life so much easier. I started playing guitar 4 months ago and I didn’t know anything about the guitar. So I needed someone to tune my guitar for me or at least help me (My grandpa knows how to play and tune guitar. He was pretty young when he started playing on it. But I can’t always ask him to help me). So this app was just perfect for me. It’s free. It shows you all the chords. It’s precise while tuning. And it has little mini-games as well (although if you want more games you need to pay. But it’s pretty reasonable price). So the bottom line than. If you want the basics of the basics on guitar this is the app that will provide you with anything. If you want to learn more you need to pay (But I think their Yousician app is much better if you wanna “master” the guitar). And the best thing is that the app is beautiful, it has a good tuner and all the chords you will probably ever need. (This was kinda too big of a bottom line 🤣) Thank you for reading!
I love this app!
by Alyssa P. J. on 2018/06/07 06:38
This app has been amazing! Before I get into detail, this app has helped me learn so much, and I’m so glad I downloaded it. It has been the easiest way for me to learn chords. I first downloaded this app when I began playing guitar, to help keep it in tune. As I became more familiar with the app and my guitar, I started using the “learn to play chords” feature. When I was ready to learn new chords I purchased the full version. One of the best purchases I could’ve made. All of the features expand for the guitar. But, not all of the features expand for the ukulele. This is pretty disappointing. This app has been a foundation for me learning to play and I really wish they had the “learn to play chords” feature for the uke. Hopefully the developers are working on this! Honestly if you’re newer (or even experienced) to playing and are looking for an app to help you get your instrument in tune and learn new chords I’d recommend this app.
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.
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!
The King of the Field!!
by Joshua of Oregon on 2019/03/31 16:48
From all of the tunner apps on the market I’m only reviewing the ones that are free. Being a real musician, and currently having zero to no money, when I type into google ‘tuner apps for free’ I’m assuming the results are going to be representative of free tuner apps.....not apps that are free until you want to tune with them.... Apparently that’s what most app development people assuming is going to work. What they don’t understand is that when I go through all of the effort of finding your app, downloading your app, installing your app, opening your app, and learning how to use your app....only to be greeted with “you must purchase this app in order to get it to work…They not only have lost a customer… They’ve made an enemy for life… I actually have a special spot in my password black book it’s labeled poison… In on this page or only the names of the developers who have wasted my time by misrepresenting their free app… This app, is a breathe of fresh air. You can actually use this app to tune your guitar for free… If you pay additional amount it’ll do a lot more cool stuff for you, but if you don’t have the money to pay for the upgrades, it still functions fantastically as a tuner … Four stars… A+ plus… Way to go guys you’re the best
Best for learning guitar
by Lazy Crative on 2017/09/29 21:12
Have you ever taken a class where the instructor not only allowed smart phones but insisted you download a specific app? Last year at my college I took a guitar class for non music major with no previous experience in guitar. It is called guitar class. So there were other students in it. It was 1 credit hour & I got an A. If you pass that with at least a C you can only take it once. I'm currently in what os called guitar elective. That is a one on one lesson in his office. Elective guitar can be taken as many times as the student wants. The pendulum is crucial to learning & the tuning is crucial to just using a guitar. This music teacher could teach a rhesus monkey to play the ukulele. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in the guitar whether they are a beginner or a pro stadium musician.
More like a blessing than an app
by TheTenthDoctorIsSexy on 2018/02/11 03:16
My friend introduced me to this app and since then, this app has been a blessing in my life. With it, I am able to tune my ukulele, violin, guitar, and my best friend's cello. It is so easy to use and is very precise. Even with the free version (which is what I have) there is so much you can do. Not only can you tune your instrument with this app, but you can also use the tools in the app such as the metronome or the chords tool where it shows you the fingering for different chords on the ukulele and guitar. It also has an option in the chords tool where you can listen to the chord to make sure you are playing it correctly. Overall: I rate this a 6/5. This is probably the most useful app I have downloaded on my phone and it is so easy to use. Love love love it!!!
Great, 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.
Great app, extremely useful.
by MLGsniperclanminecrafter on 2017/12/31 19:56
When I started playing Ukulele, I could never keep it in tune, it was a pain, and I had no idea where to start, so when I started learning guitar, I was even more overwhelmed. When I was playing one night with my horrendous sounding guitar, a friend told me about this app. I downloaded it, and almost instantly, my guitar and ukulele were sounding great. A year later, this app is still my go-to tuner, and although I do know how to tune without an app or tuner, this app truly helps me when I’m not quite sure. I recommend this to any guitarist, whether you’re a beginner, an amateur, or a pro. Even if you have a clip on tuner, this app is great for when you leave it at home, or can’t find it. 10/10 would download again.
great 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.
Works very well
by SevinStorey on 2018/04/09 03:11
As a young boy (in my early 20’s) I picked up my first hand me down flat top and bought a chord chart poster from Walmart and self taught myself how to strum chords enough to eventually start playing parties and small bars. I never did learn how to tune however but I can definitely tell when she’s out. I would always have to ask a friend or count on a small tuner that was easy to misplace or lose but now I can do it on my phone which I always have in my pocket and its extremely accurate as I’ve checked it on tuners and with class act guitar players including myself. There’s no bothersome pop ups (thank God) and it never asks me to buy anything,(again thank God) or I would drop it from my phone. Great deal for anybody out there.
So good i wrote a review.
by Sbpoodoo312 on 2018/02/11 07:26
Making the switch to trying life as an all digital, all mobile, iPhone based guitar(enthus)i(a)st ... giving up tubes and pedals for simplicity’s sake. I am trying out many dozens of guitar apps as a result — including tuners — and this one definitely stands out. I wish alternate tunings came free, but its worth the (minimal) price if you need them. Many of the apps i have used have tuners built in to them but — even when i am actively using just such an app — i still find myself switching to this one, and honestly i couldnt tell exactly quite why. Maybe its the fengshui of the layout but this app just has that all around quality feeling that makes it rise above the rest. Yeah, its just a tuner, but it nails the execution.
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!
Loved it. No complaints.
by kaejisan on 2018/09/10 01:00
I love this app. I’ll be honest, I’m not musically inclined. I have no sense of rhythm, I can’t come close to reading sheet music, and I was just about done dreaming of being a musician (without any success). I wanted to let myself down easy. However, I found this app, and considering the good reviews, I figured I’d give it a shot. I finally managed to tune the guitar I hadn’t touched since fourth grade when I got it, and even my sister’s crappy Five-Below ukulele. This app works wonders. I even learned a few chords. Crazy. Unfortunately, I cannot access the shop to unlock any new chords. That has nothing to do with the app, though. That’s my problem, haha. However, this app inspired me to learn a new skill. While I’m going to have to go online for new chords, I need to say that this app set me up for success — so far. Again, I’m no professional. I’m a high school freshman whose friend said you can get girls with guitar. I’m a 5’1 ginger, so I need all the help I can get. Maybe I can be the new Ed Sheeran? Probably not, but at least now someone can find some appeal in my personality :) Thank you, GuitarTuna! -Kadison
Overall great, but missing a few things
by Cece8289 on 2018/11/20 17:21
Let me start by saying this is a REALLY good app. It’s very accurate, it saves me tons of time with tuning, and it has ALMOST every tuning under the sun to choose from. That being said, for more advanced players who are using less popular tunings like drop G, drop G#, drop F, etc., you’re going to have a really tough time because those aren’t an option. There IS an option to custom tune a 6 string which is great, but does also have some limitations. But I really do wish there was an option to do custom tuning for a 7 string because they only offer standard and drop A for 7 strings (yeah, they’re the most commonly used, but not the only ways to tune a 7 string). But otherwise, really well made app!
Good accuracy
by Criticbuster on 2018/07/06 07:49
I don’t usually write reviews about apps, since I find it very helpful to read about others experiences with apps, maybe mine can help people as well. I’ve been playing the guitar for over 40 years, so I was just looking for an app that could tune the guitar accurately. I love the fact that the app has so many separate parts that you can add to it. I don’t need all the other stuff, other players may enjoy the chord library, metronome, and the practice sections it has. Only thing I would like to see is the standard guitar interface have the ability to tune chromatically instead of having no guitar image at all. But great app!
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
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.
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 !!!
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.
Can’t just view frequency any more
by Agentmith on 2019/03/05 18:32
I’ve been using this to tune various non-standard instruments based on frequency and never had a problem until today. It keeps bringing me to the store page for some reason and it’s incredibly frustrating. Before, all I needed to do was open the app and it wouldn’t be associated with an instrument, it just measured the frequency and told me if the pitch value was correct. This is literally all I want, and I can’t find this anymore. I’ve restored purchases and all that. If this used to be something that was removed and is now a paid in-app purchase or a subscription, I’ll just ditch this and use something else, which I hope isn’t the case as I’ve used this app for years. Its a dirty practice to remove features that were included for however long then ask for more money to get them back.
Efficient
by Rosedust24 on 2017/03/13 19:47
It's a music tuning app, so there will be pros and cons. The fact that we do not have to go out and purchase a decent tuner should make us all happy. Like anything else, it can mess up. These are minor, like when the microphone struggles with picking up the sound waves, it will tweak out sometimes. Oh and the pop up that asks users to rate the app.. so I finally did it. Though, I'm sure it will keep popping up every now and then. Other than that, I use it just about every day. I've tried some other tuning apps, but i prefer the dark theme of GuitarTuna! And it's set up nicely, easy to see and auto tune.
New update lags behind
by Ultistat on 2017/01/28 10:03
I've used this app for several months now, and it's been great so far. Great as a chord reference guide, great for its primary tuning capabilities. No complaints prior to the most recent update. However, as of this update made available several days ago, I have noticed that the swiping mechanism within the app seems delayed. It doesn't feel as responsive as it was before, and there is a lag once you swipe until the panel stops moving. This is a nuisance, requiring multiple attempts to do something that once required one smooth swipe across the screen. Moreover, the chord diagrams seem significantly smaller (although with higher resolutions) than before, making them less impactful than before. It would be great if these issues could be resolved, as I love using this app and will continue to use this app in spite of the minor inconveniences sourced from this update. Also, it would be cool if guitar scales were also available within the app, I would find it super helpful in my quest towards guitar proficiency. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see these changes made soon!
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!
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.

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.
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!
GREAT, but I still have some ideas
by Kira.crystal on 2017/09/25 20:09
Read a different review if you want to know all the good the bugs about this app because they cover them all. I just wanted to make a suggestion. It is already so, so useful, but it would be even more useful if there was an option to play the learning games without a time limit so that the user could just practice accuracy if they are not ready for accuracy AND speed yet. A feature that tells you what chord/note you are playing would also be helpful if you want to play a chord/note and then check if it is what you meant to play.
AMAZING FAST AND ACCURATE
by Katniss57 on 2019/01/16 17:59
I used to not want to play my guitar because tuning it was such a pain, then I got this app and now it’s SO fast! Ill be with people and I’ll tune my guitar with this app then they go “woah that was fast” 10/10 recommend. I’m not an advanced guitar player though so idk if they have this or if I just couldn’t find it but I’ve seen people talk about tuning the strings beyond just standard tuning and I couldn’t find that without having to pay for it on here so that’s unfortunate but it’s a great app overall. (Behold the longest run on sentence of all time)
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!

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!

In the last 55 years or so, Ive used every kind of tuner on the market and ended up thinking the Snark was the best of them all. The love affair lasted until I went to a picnic and sat down with a couple of friends to play a little. Dead battery, no Snark. I downloaded your app and haven’t looked back. We always have our phones in our pockets, so instant access to perfect tuning. Ever see a used guitar for sale in a shop that you can’t really tell anything about because every kid in the store has “tuned” it? No problem now. Thanks! Pap Danger
Good but one flaw
by Pointe_up on 2019/01/27 23:30
I just recently got a ukulele, and I’ve been looking for an app that would help me tune quicker than by ear. I found this app and I was like jackpot. I got into it and it tuned my ukulele really well, and then I noticed the game feature. I was like, cool! So got on there and realized that there wasn’t a ukulele option for the games!! Maybe there is and I just can’t find it, but I can’t find a way to get it to change to ukulele!! If you give an option to tune a ukulele, then give an option to do games as a ukulele!! I’m a little bit frustrated, but other than that it’s a really good tuner!!
Very reliable tuner
by theNewPaul on 2020/02/08 21:18
This is a great app! Very easy to use and very reliable, if you are just starting out, you can take a big worry off your mind, by getting in tune quickly and easily with this app. You will enjoy your guitar playing more if you are playing in tune, and you will be much more likely to stick with it. Very important! This is one case where the technology improves things in a significant way. I also have friends who play guitar professionally, and use this app right before a gig! Highly recommended!

This app is amazing. It tunes guitars much faster then a clip tuner... but it still ends of sounding the same!!! I got back from a two month trip the other day, and this is the first time I’ve played guitar since because it was too big to bring. It took 27 minutes to tune because it was so out of tune, and at first I was irritated with the app, but I was looking through my photo app, watched a video of me playing “ode to joy” a few weeks before I left in that trip, and I realized, it WAS out of tune! This app is amazing, and I 100% reccomend.
Love it!!!
by Kit_Kat__ on 2019/01/13 03:29
I have a ukulele and a guitar that both haven’t been used to much so they’re both quick to go out of tune. I’ve used other tuners before, but I love this one! It’s simple to use and great for beginners! I’ve taken lessons and have practice with my instruments, but sometimes I space out a bit and forget which notch tunes which string, but this tuner shows which notch to use, which string to play, and plays the note once before you start so you can figure out how bad/good your instrument’s string is! Totally love it and recommend!!!
Killer tuning app
by Alter Bridge Freak on 2018/09/11 17:22
Well to start this off there are many times as we all know you get to a gig and your Snark is at home sitting on your acoustic guitar. This app has saved me plenty of times and well worth not having to go out and buy a Nother Snark over and over and over because you forgot it at home LOL. Not only that but I have several Tunings that I like to be in occasionally and this app allows you to store your own which is an amazing feature other apps do not have. You got to have your tuna and eat too!! Thanks! Chris
Minor fixes, major change
by K_Forbes on 2020/05/19 01:16
Only using this app as a tuner—did not purchase premium features. Tuner works great except for two minor details that other reviewers have also mentioned. The first is that the G string is very difficult to tune—the app constantly misidentifies the string as high E and of course tells me that it’s too low. End up having to tune that string by ear. The second is that if the volume on my phone is not turned down when I start to tune, the phone speaker creates feedback with the mic and doesn’t tune correctly. If those two things could be fixed, this would bump my review up to five stars easily.
