Tuner for violin
by tner #1 on 2020/10/05 21:54
A great tuner
Find another one for low registers
by Dominohthekm on 2020/09/24 22:01
I can only speak for bass cause thats all i have to test it on but the hand that points to where youre tuned at based on the mic just wildly fluctuates between the right and the left side of the screen, it just displays random letters for the notes too. Seems like the app is controlled by a combination of random number and letter generators
It was not accurate for me
by Mimi_C_ on 2020/09/20 04:04
I really loved it at first and it has some nice features, but tonight i was tuning my ukulele and realised that it sounded completely different to when i tuned it to my keyboard. I checked this tuner against my keyboard and found that c came out to a b#. After this i downloaded 3 other tuners and they all said that the c was indeed a c. Its nice but not accurate at all.
This app is just supposed to be a chromatic tuner. it doesn’t work
by Stefan the dog on 2020/09/17 18:10
Even with the free version, I would expect the tuner of a chromatic tuner app to work-but it doesn’t.
Great tuner!

A great on the go tuner, simple and easy to use.

The Awesome Tuner
by Ccampanarioj on 2020/09/02 19:49
This app is awesome! I use it almost everyday to help me tune my violin before playing it. Thank you Tuner Lite!
Wrong readings??
by Allie.K.Stone on 2020/08/21 20:00
This app keeps reading my pitch a half to whole step too low. My A will read as a G# and sometimes even a G. Other people say this works, but not for me. (Note: My instrument is the violin.)
Works great on the go
by megtravel on 2020/08/16 05:51
My music students often wont or font get a tuner but they will use this app. Very helpful with old skool meter style to visually explain pitch
Good app
by I am literally amazing on 2020/08/12 16:36
This app is a good app. I have the free version, but it works great. It’s nice to have the option to hear the note to tune to, or to have the app listen to your note and tell you how close it is to being in tune. The only thing the premium version lets you do as far as I know is to remove ads and customize the background. Neither of these things are a problem in the free version because the ads are a little strip in the bottom so they don’t interrupt your tuning. In the free version, you can still customize the background, but your options are limited. Highly recommend.
Great for guitar!

by PS1234567 on 2020/07/10 07:26
In a world where features are king (even though they actually aren’t) having a product that simply does what it’s supposed to do and does it well is so very refreshing. This is the best tuner app hands down. No contest. To the developer, please don’t ever change this. It’s perfect. Keep it perfect forever.
Good Work!
by Violin Love🎻❤️❤️🎻❤️❤️ on 2020/07/04 03:26
Since we are at home and probably don’t have anything to do and you have a Violin that went out of tune or needs to be tuned then this is the app for you! This app helped A TON. Because Violinist my self! But I can’t tune my Violin yet so this really helps. I really do Recommend this!

I just wanted to play my ukulele! Guess I’ll go play my guitar or piano or drums or clarinet because i can’t find a good tuner anywhere!

Wouldn’t quit asking me to purchase the premium version!
by TravelinSoul on 2020/04/08 16:11
I couldn’t even try it out as I couldn’t get off the pop up, buy the premium app screen, to try the free one out. Extremely irritating and obviously needs to be fixed. It might be good, but don’t know.
Pros and cons
by unknown middle on 2020/04/08 14:14
Honestly this is really good for tuning but still it ask you way to much to pay for stuff for example you have to pay for settings, landscape mode ,and you have to pay for skins
Pretty good
by Beep Bop Beep Bop Beep on 2020/04/08 01:02
Good tuner! However, quite a few of the tuners features are behind a pay wall. Otherwise, good tuner!
Good for bass guitar
by bumblees on 2020/04/07 12:23
For an app that is just a microphone it does pretty well for bass, I just hit the 12th fret and it usually gets it close enough for me

Overall solid. Best around
by ChungaNanook on 2018/12/28 07:32
Not too many complaints here. The best there is on the iOS market. However, the icons for the tuning fork and the speaker should be switched. Right, so I'm trying to get a reference pitch so I default to the tuning fork button. Wrong, apparently if you wanna play your instrument at volume (like a speaker button might indicate), that's what the tuning fork button is for. Like I'm just looking for an effing A440 and would be looking for that tuning fork in real life. But when I click that tuning fork button, it brings me to the chromatic tuner. Like seriously, a tuning fork is not a chromatic tuner. Why in the h is the g darn chromatic tuner icon a tuning fork. Serious flippin UI problem. Took me like a solid month of pure frustration to get this shiitake straight.
Amazing Quality, Great App
by #Love4Music on 2019/01/04 01:54
I really like Tuner Lite because it allows me to have a tuner pretty much whenever I want, because I don’t have a tuner at home. I love how it’s free and doesn’t take up much storage, and you can change your background if you want to. It also doesn’t run wild like other tuners do. (What I mean by that is some tuners bounce from “it’s all tuned!” To “it’s horrible” within a second and it gets me confused. Tuner Lite doesn’t do that.) One thing I don’t like about Tuner Lite, though, is that it limits you to a certain amount of backgrounds “because they are only available in the payable version of the app”. Well, that doesn’t really matter that much because it’s great anyway, so I still give it 5 stars. Another thing I don’t like is that it has useless ads at the bottom. Well, I guess it doesn’t bother me too much because it doesn’t cover anything important in the app. One strange thing I noticed today is that when I clicked on the app, it wanted me to get some “music store”, when I don’t need that thing. I just need Tuner Lite and Soundcorset to practice my violin. (Check that app out too; you’ll love it!) Anyway, when I clicked on that (I had no choice)it took me to the App Store where it wanted me to buy it. No thanks. I just went back to Tuner Lite and everything was fine. I love it, and I really recommend it for every musician to use!
Tuner Lite
by SuperStarEars on 2018/10/27 01:08
I am a severely vision impaired person. I am able to magnify the screen of my phone with a special camera so that I can see A huge Lee magnified image of my iPhone screen and see the needle on tuner lite. That being said, none of the buttons of this app will work when voiceover accessibility feature is activated on the iPhone. As many vision impaired musicians as there are out there, the developers of this app should have made it accessible to those of us who want to use an electronic tuner for our instruments but need voiceover to tell us The function of each button we are activating on the screen and function correctly with the usual voiceover gestures needed for other features on the iPhone As usual, we vision impaired people are left out again when it comes to app development. This app needs to be accessible to everyone. I personally am very tired of talking to app developers about the fact that we need equal access and being told that when the ads they put in the App Store were developed, they were not meant to be used by blind people. This is really no longer acceptible. If Apple can include accessibility features on their product. App developers can make sure that their products are 100% accessible to all.
Usually pretty good
by An alpaca on 2018/02/16 17:36
It’s a nice app the whip out quickly to tune. It’s a little challenging to play and watch for intonation while working on a piece of you have the lite version. The ads will pop up covering the whole screen. Sometimes very frequently and times it’ll make you press play so you can get the video started so you can go back to tuning. That’s a little annoying. Also I ran into problems where it will stick onto one note and as play other notes, it’s frozen on that precious note until I exit out the app again.
Great App but Still Needs Work
by #TheSaxPlayerGymnast😜😉 on 2019/05/07 19:39
I am a saxophonist and I just started to use this app yesterday. It was great when I first started using it. But then I noticed a couple of annoying things. When I first got it I went to the settings and tried to change the background to one of the picture ones and it said that I have buy the other app. Also when I would get the perfect pitch on one note I either get to flat or to sharp on the next note. Some of the things that I would like to check out on the app it would not let me because I have the free version. So overall I give it three stars because it is not that open to everyone and some people would not like to pay just for the settings. So please open these settings to everyone.

Very very glitchy and not that accurate
by MariaPSwims16 on 2019/04/01 00:08
This app is great but when I play one string on the violin, the meter goes haywire. It keeps moving to opposite ends of the spectrum- so much so that there are many times when I don’t know whether the string is flat or not. Also, referring to the slight lack in accuracy, when I play a key on my piano it is read as slightly flat by when I play an open string which sounds the exact same, it’s read as extremely sharp- sometimes even a half step above the note it’s supposed to be. Besides these two points, this app is good and convenient. However, I hope the developers are able to fix these issues.
One size fits all
by john523b on 2019/11/20 00:15
It lays out a reasonable scale. Most great tuners who use electronic tuners to create a temperament, tune the tuner to the piano and then use the adjusted scale to guide the well tempered instrument. With this app there is no such capability. The scale is laid out by primary tones as if it could be represented by 88 tuning forks that have been laid out as a temperament where one size fits all. It will work well enough on a practice piano in a music school but not for a recording or concert instrument.
Out of tune!
by Oubrat79 on 2019/01/05 21:20
I got this app for my violin and it seemed to work fine the first time I used it. Today I got out my violin and since I hadn’t messed with it for a couple days I wanted to check the it. I turned on the app and it said all my strings were really out of tune. I assumed it was because of the humidity change in the air and went to retuning my violin. After several frustrating minutes I went to test my pitch with my electric piano and every note was WAY OFF! I decided to test the app with the piano and the app is wrong on every note. It reads a C as a D. It is either a half or whole step off on every note! Now I am trying to find an actual tuner so I can fix what this app screwed up.
Really?
by musicislife169 on 2018/05/21 22:08
I used this app to tune my clarinet and when I played a C it said that it was VERY flat (-50) then for the next 10 minutes I kept on trying to get a perfect C and I couldn’t! Then I decided to test this app with my piano, that was tuned shortly ago (a few months ago) I don’t play my piano that much, I play it about 30 minutes a day everyday and it’s in pretty good condition. I played a C on my piano and this app said it was a D!Honestly I don’t know what to say about this app, it works pretty good for others but I don’t understand what happened here! I’m giving this app two stars for actually being able to detect sounds.
Best loud easy to use metronome that’s free
by DoftheKing on 2019/09/12 19:00
All it takes is one finger to turn it on or adjust the tempo. I don’t have to put everything down pick it up etc. Don’t bother paying for one yes there are ads there at the bottom I don’t even see them because I’m not looking at the metronome I’m listening to it. If I happen to look at it or my students do they don’t get in the way we don’t even notice them.
Why is it soo hard...
by ttsavage30 on 2019/07/19 23:55
So I recently bought this new viola, that needed to be tuned. A4,D4,G3,C3 when I tune my A string and come as it perfect, then when I move to the next string. I go back to check if it’s going to give me my A4, but it always comes back F#3, but just a minute ago it was A3. It seems like the app is giving my inaccurate tuning, it’s been a great app but I need my tuning to be correct. I do understand that the apps on my phone, but I go through these reviews about people having wonderful experiences, but I don’t. I’m going to try it out one more time, if the app works I’ll continue using the app.
Ruined by the ads
by ilviolin on 2018/02/17 00:13
I used to love this app because I found it to work well. I would have given it 5 stars. The last time I tried to use it, though, there was an ad at the bottom that automatically expanded to engulf the entire screen with a video clip of a puppy. When I closed the full screen ad, it would pop back open again within a few seconds, rendering the app completely useless. This problem persisted after closing and reopening the app several times. Now I am on the search for another tuning app; a friend of mine uses PitchLab and it seems to work well for her, so I might give that one a try.
Pretty good app
by WhentheMusic'sOver26 on 2017/08/31 03:47
It's a good app if you need a quick tune. I would not however substitute this for an actual chromatic tuner. The chromatic pitches are rather weak so it's hard to play an instrument with the tuner if needed (I play mainly acoustic instruments). Lastly, in my opinion the tuner is rather "noncommittal". At times it works but if the same note is played three or four times the subtle differences are not the same (the pitch is the same so there's a slight inaccuracy with the app. Overall it's good but not the best and cannot be used with precise intonation practice purposes)
Last fix cleared longstanding mandolin g string issues
by Dmiley2952 on 2017/09/02 13:15
Maybe mandolins get no respect, but the previous update killed the ability to tune at all. Perhaps because of attention to my instrument of choice, the g string tuning is now much, much better. Thanks for dealing with this quickly and even making an improvement. Now if I can remember my apple id and password, I might even buy it
VERY IMPORTANT! MUST READ🤨
by Sonce44 on 2018/11/29 15:44
When I first bought this app everything was fine and dandy.👍 It was a quick and easy way to tune all my instruments.🎻🎸🎤 I usually tune by myself at home with my flute, detach it and tune with my band at school. This app worked well, until 1️⃣ day my tuner app said all my 🎶 were one 🎵 above were they were supposed to be. I was furious, I had a concert in two weeks😱😱 and I assumed my flute was broken... But something didn’t sit right with me 🧐 I went on my 🎹 to play an A🎵, my standard tuning note and the 🎹 and my flute were perfectly in tune🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯. The tuner app is EXTREMELY wrong. DO NOT USE THIS APP!!!!!!!
Finally!
by Hawk327 on 2018/12/10 14:41
I’ve gone through quite a few tuner apps, GuitarTuna etc. and they’re all about money for a custom tuning. I like to tune my guitars/bass/etc a bit low, I have a high b right now not an e, it works for me and my style. So nice to just have it dial in ANY note without having to work your way through a ridiculous menu or sign up or pay money. Thank you guys!
Great app!
by TWBud on 2018/11/08 21:46
I am not a musician, but have a couple of instruments that I wanted to tune, and this was the perfect app. It shows not only the note, but the meter showed the degree the strings were off. I even used it on a Tibetan Singing Bowl to see if it was the correct pitch! 🙂 if I were a musician, I would probably have purchased the app, but as it was, the free was more than I had hoped for.
Generally rather good
by ABWReviews on 2018/07/03 22:32
It’s quick and convenient to tune— especially when practicing on the go, but I wouldn’t suggest substituting it for a regular tuner. As far as apps go, it is rather great, but the proliferation of ads and tendency to freeze up when playing makes it hard to watch for intonation as you play. However, with it being a free tuning app, I would certainly recommend it.
Good tuner, but some stability problems
by 36:)1&;&197()482 on 2018/04/14 00:44
I use this for practicing the violin, and it’s overall good, but my big issue with it is when the tuner sometimes freezes. It’s easily fixed when I press the left button to turn it on and off again, but not being consistent would be my only problem with it.
20 year pro review
by zack rosicka on 2017/11/08 00:04
I’ve been playing professionally for 20 years. I know a good/accurate tuner. This app has been amazing when I don’t bring a pedalboard to a solo gig as well as changing strings. Perfect pitch and very accurate, yes I’m disagreeing with the other reviews here. This free product is Amazing! Thanks to the owners and designers, way to give back. Thank you. Zack Rosicka
Great!
by Old Town Road Horse on 2019/11/19 21:39
Much better then my last one. At first it is confusing but then you’ll get the hang of it! Just click the big button on the left and then play a note. It will say which note it thinks it is and if it is great, too low, or too high. Like I said, much better then my last one!
It works!
by Haletotheno on 2018/12/24 00:21
I like the fact that it doesn’t drown you inside of ads. Every. Other. Second. And, it actually works! One of my sisters completely untuned my instrument and my tuner was left at school. So, I looked at apps, and this is the only one that really works. Completely recommended this to other string players!
Ehh it’s ok
by 163647284842 on 2018/04/26 01:06
Like I mean it’s good of showing what notes your playing but the thing is I also use vocals to check myself but the thing is I think the numbers are a little off. Like I’ll play F4 but it’ll say F3, and then I’ll check and I’m actually playing the right note but it’s just says it’s wrong. Idk I think there is a bug.
Best tuner app!
by PS1234567 on 2020/07/10 07:26
In a world where features are king (even though they actually aren’t) having a product that simply does what it’s supposed to do and does it well is so very refreshing. This is the best tuner app hands down. No contest. To the developer, please don’t ever change this. It’s perfect. Keep it perfect forever.
Frequently Freezes
by Killrpotato on 2018/05/30 19:32
If you let the app run for about 3-4 minutes, it will freeze on a single note and won’t help you tune any other notes. The only way to fix it is to close the app entirely then reopen it. It’s also really annoying to have to tap on the tuner button when you open the app; it should automatically begin tuning. Despite the drastic technical issues, it’s a really good tuner but it could be much better.
Best tuner app ever!
by JapaneseTeacher on 2018/07/11 02:50
It catches the note quickly, along with fluctuations if your pitch keeps going sharp or flat within the same note. It is simple as doesn’t restart if you switch to a different app and then switch back. This is a mandatory app for many musicians, especially string players!
Better than all tuning apps
by TalkingBed on 2018/01/23 07:00
Aesthetics aside I have no clue why I had to sift through so many bad tuning apps to find this one. It's the way a tuning app should be, easily accessible while not being over simplistic- like the actual, physical, established tuners. Alternative tunings are free as they should be!
Great app
by 835448Nm on 2018/06/04 08:38
This is literally the only tuner I use everyday all day....for my acoustic guitar my electric guitars and my three bass guitars. I own tuners that cost some good money and definitely are worth it but the best thing about this app is that I don’t have to plug my guitars into it. I just pull my phone out of my pocket set it down open the app and tune away. It simply and easy to use it’s accurate and it has worked every time and if you get bored with it you can change the theme on it and it’s like you got a new tuner... To who ever made this app thank and keep up the good work.
Solid little app!
by AppleNickName222 on 2020/03/25 01:20
We’re “sheltering in place” here which means the violin teacher can’t tune the kids’ violins for us. And my wife and I haven’t a clue about music. Enter this app + a little patience. Violin sounds wonderful, and we’re making progress while staying isolated. Perfect!
Better than the rest
by guitarsare cool1234 on 2018/07/16 05:39
Always had good results with this app. Works great in a quiet environment, and will also do the job if there are other voices, or sounds around. Haha remember saying “hey can you guys keep it down. I have to tune my guitar!!!” Hope this help. Keep on keeping on dudes
Free “Lite” version does the basics
by Paddle farther on 2019/06/02 05:43
Free version is nothing fancy, just shows (1) notation & analog type meter, or (2) provides audible tone. Bass guitar can throw some tuners - this one doesn’t trip. Only complaints are that a) noisy background confuses the meter, b) the A-440 tone is too quiet to hear in all but quietest environment. Neither a problem in practice room.
goes off
by Ft.jacen on 2019/04/22 20:24
i have perfect pitch. and i have this tuner so it can help me stay more on key when i sing, and helps me see if my piano is tuned. and sometimes i’ve noticed if i move a few half-steps down too quickly, it throws off the machine’s pitch. luckily i KNOW when it’s off because i’m given the advantage of having pitch myself, but it ALMOST made me think i was wrong, however i knew i wasn’t. that should be fixed.
Especially good if you play in 432 (A)
by William J Cote on 2018/04/30 16:37
I’ve discovered that my music sounds much better when my band tunes to 432 instead of the standard 440. This tuner makes it easy to calibrate to other pitches which isnt offered in most tuners. (Thanks for including that feature!)
Tuner keeps stopping
by rt peasant on 2019/09/24 13:48
The tuner works for maybe ten seconds then it stops working. It seems to correspond to when the ad at the bottom of the screen changes. I have to stop what I’m doing, reach down and turn the tuner off and on to get it working again. Very frustrating. Please fix this bug! Other than that, it’s a nice app when it works.
Could be better but couldn’t be freer- thanks!
by hdjajdbxbdh on 2020/03/20 23:07
Sometimes it has trouble figuring out the note being played. Takes a few minutes to get it just right. Get a paid app if you need it tuned faster, I guess :)
Accurate tune app ever!
by Mehmet Eraslan on 2019/12/12 18:01
I downloaded about 5 violin tune app almost all of them was junk with crazy ads. This app is the only accurate tune app ever. Surprisingly it’s free and ads free app. Thank you so much for an amazing app which makes my training easy :)
Good Work!
by Violin Love🎻❤️❤️🎻❤️❤️ on 2020/07/04 03:26
Since we are at home and probably don’t have anything to do and you have a Violin that went out of tune or needs to be tuned then this is the app for you! This app helped A TON. Because Violinist my self! But I can’t tune my Violin yet so this really helps. I really do Recommend this!
Very good!!
by Allofyhenicknamesweretaken😁 on 2020/02/21 03:15
I really like this app, not only because it’s free and easy to use, but it’s accurate, and helps me hurry and get my instrument or whatever I’m playing ready to go, because the more I practice the better I get. And with Tuner Lite, it makes me better.
Very simple, very good. The Goldilocks of simple tuners.
by Performing Arts Prof. on 2017/09/08 04:59
Many tuners actually react too quickly for variable pitch instruments- voice, winds etc. The needle jumps all over with the small fluctuations in pitch. This one is adjustable from a very slow to a very quick response. Also, there are a lot of tuner apps that you need to take a night class to learn to operate. This one is wonderfully simple. And yet! This is one of the few tuners that has exact hash marks for Just intonation of 3rds (major down 14 cents, and minor thirds up 16 cents.) This is an excellent simple tuner!
Works very well
by Tony the Farmer on 2019/02/05 02:16
I give this top rating as it does everything i need and probably more The cost of a small clip on tuner is not bad but this is free, download click on the tuning fork and tune. No BS ad's nothing just good old reliable tuning Thanks for the awesomeness
Easy to use and accurate
by badger biy on 2020/06/07 21:21
Have an antique Mills Violano, approx 100 years old but fully restored. When it came time to tune the violin the task was extremely easy and highly accurate. Thank you for developing this wonderful app!!
It’s ok
by Christmas Rules! on 2018/06/07 21:20
The app is ok if you have a slight tuning issue, but if it’s pretty major (laughs at unintended pun), it tunes my instrument really sharp. It’s probably just me, I’m not sure. The ads get really annoying, too. I find it easier to just listen to the note and try and match it because the actual tuning part of the app doesn’t work well with my instrument (cello)
On a scale from 1 - 10, I give it a decent
by Wildanimalhere on 2018/05/14 07:18
Quick and convenient, I mean, it’s on my phone so...more often than not I at least think I know where it is. I had to move some numbers around...tighten up the ol’ belt, in the parlance of our times, to afford it. Not to say it’s not priced appropriately, ‘cause it is...it’s a free, easy tuner app that works, what’s not to like?
Tuner lite....really like it because...
by 8-19-8 on 2020/04/18 02:39
When I use this to tune my classical guitar, as the meter comes to “zero” for each string I can hear my guitar come alive. I’m not much of an artist, but this app helps me sound better than I am! Many thanks!
Great App
by Jdog74789 on 2019/09/15 16:05
I’ve been using this app for years. It is amazing, especially for a free app. There are very small adds on the bottom, not a big deal. It’s accurate and easy to use. Stop looking, you’ve found your tuner.
Pretty accurate
by Leo the Violin on 2018/11/26 05:28
I’m currently working on the Mendelssohn concerto for violin and I’m finding this tuner more effective than my old tuner purchased from a shop. My teacher also uses this tuner. I like how precise it is, more precise than my old tuner.
Always reliable and works as expected
by a12346838 on 2020/03/22 18:13
Saved me $ from buying a tuner. Also convenient that I don’t need to worry about carrying a tuner around since I can just use this app on my phone
Uggggggggg
by picklesmcgittles on 2018/10/18 00:34
Don’t get me wrong it’s a great app but I can’t tune my clarinet properly because I don’t have the full version and all the basics are in the full version so you need to make and update were every body can use all the different features but until then you can have a terrible rating because not every body has money to pay to get a full version

A great tuner
Find another one for low registers
by Dominohthekm on 2020/09/24 22:01
I can only speak for bass cause thats all i have to test it on but the hand that points to where youre tuned at based on the mic just wildly fluctuates between the right and the left side of the screen, it just displays random letters for the notes too. Seems like the app is controlled by a combination of random number and letter generators
It was not accurate for me
by Mimi_C_ on 2020/09/20 04:04
I really loved it at first and it has some nice features, but tonight i was tuning my ukulele and realised that it sounded completely different to when i tuned it to my keyboard. I checked this tuner against my keyboard and found that c came out to a b#. After this i downloaded 3 other tuners and they all said that the c was indeed a c. Its nice but not accurate at all.
This app is just supposed to be a chromatic tuner. it doesn’t work
by Stefan the dog on 2020/09/17 18:10
Even with the free version, I would expect the tuner of a chromatic tuner app to work-but it doesn’t.
Great tuner!

Wrong readings??
by Allie.K.Stone on 2020/08/21 20:00
This app keeps reading my pitch a half to whole step too low. My A will read as a G# and sometimes even a G. Other people say this works, but not for me. (Note: My instrument is the violin.)
Works great on the go
by megtravel on 2020/08/16 05:51
My music students often wont or font get a tuner but they will use this app. Very helpful with old skool meter style to visually explain pitch
Good app
by I am literally amazing on 2020/08/12 16:36
This app is a good app. I have the free version, but it works great. It’s nice to have the option to hear the note to tune to, or to have the app listen to your note and tell you how close it is to being in tune. The only thing the premium version lets you do as far as I know is to remove ads and customize the background. Neither of these things are a problem in the free version because the ads are a little strip in the bottom so they don’t interrupt your tuning. In the free version, you can still customize the background, but your options are limited. Highly recommend.
Great for guitar!

Very happy wit ‘‘tis app. Works well on all my instruments and voice.
Fantastic tuner
by Pspdany on 2020/04/22 05:31

Best Tuner
by Meet11 on 2020/04/21 05:20
I have tried multiple tuners on app store. But this works 100% accurate. Easy n simple to use. Love it!! 100% recommended!
So remarkable...
by Marty Theophilus on 2020/04/21 04:54
This is a fantastic tool for the music lover. hardly use my tuner anymore now that I have this. Praise God for the people who made it.
:(
by Scrambled_meggs on 2020/04/18 15:47
Awful, just awful! It says I’m playing A, when I’m literally playing c!!!!! It’s so annoying! I hate this thing. I can never find a good tuner, they’re all so annoying! I just wanted to play my ukulele! Guess I’ll go play my guitar or piano or drums or clarinet because i can’t find a good tuner anywhere!
Tuner lite....really like it because...
by 8-19-8 on 2020/04/18 02:39
When I use this to tune my classical guitar, as the meter comes to “zero” for each string I can hear my guitar come alive. I’m not much of an artist, but this app helps me sound better than I am! Many thanks!

Best Basic Tuning App
by Vthops on 2020/04/12 00:13
Tried a bunch and this is a great basic tuner
Easy, familiar
by Tom Typo on 2020/04/10 12:19
The interface looks familiar and feels intuitive to use. I would have paid $2 to $5 for this app.
Happy with this tuner
by jim from VT on 2020/04/09 17:28
Five stars very happy
Wouldn’t quit asking me to purchase the premium version!
by TravelinSoul on 2020/04/08 16:11
I couldn’t even try it out as I couldn’t get off the pop up, buy the premium app screen, to try the free one out. Extremely irritating and obviously needs to be fixed. It might be good, but don’t know.
Pros and cons
by unknown middle on 2020/04/08 14:14
Honestly this is really good for tuning but still it ask you way to much to pay for stuff for example you have to pay for settings, landscape mode ,and you have to pay for skins
Pretty good
by Beep Bop Beep Bop Beep on 2020/04/08 01:02
Good tuner! However, quite a few of the tuners features are behind a pay wall. Otherwise, good tuner!
Good for bass guitar
by bumblees on 2020/04/07 12:23
For an app that is just a microphone it does pretty well for bass, I just hit the 12th fret and it usually gets it close enough for me
Good free app!
by Cmariefh on 2020/04/06 16:55
Great for my kids!
Use it all the time
by Rolamd 201 on 2020/04/05 16:07
Great for all kinds of strings
It really works!
by kraut at peterbilt on 2020/04/04 21:22
For someone like me that has never played before has found this app to be very helpful.

No Good Quality
by Nexirby on 2020/04/03 19:52
When I tried this tuner, it was horrendous. Every SINGLE note would show the note A.Horrible
Nice tuning app for musicians
by Lil Bub 24 on 2020/04/02 14:28
I used to play the cello (which I still have), and it’s nice to have an app like this on my phone.
Looks good, works great
by Flooosie on 2020/04/01 22:18
I play the flute (trying to), and have issues with pitch. With this app, I can am learning to control my mouth to tune to the right note. Great app.
I love this tuner!

Overall solid. Best around
by ChungaNanook on 2018/12/28 07:32
Not too many complaints here. The best there is on the iOS market. However, the icons for the tuning fork and the speaker should be switched. Right, so I'm trying to get a reference pitch so I default to the tuning fork button. Wrong, apparently if you wanna play your instrument at volume (like a speaker button might indicate), that's what the tuning fork button is for. Like I'm just looking for an effing A440 and would be looking for that tuning fork in real life. But when I click that tuning fork button, it brings me to the chromatic tuner. Like seriously, a tuning fork is not a chromatic tuner. Why in the h is the g darn chromatic tuner icon a tuning fork. Serious flippin UI problem. Took me like a solid month of pure frustration to get this shiitake straight.
Amazing Quality, Great App
by #Love4Music on 2019/01/04 01:54
I really like Tuner Lite because it allows me to have a tuner pretty much whenever I want, because I don’t have a tuner at home. I love how it’s free and doesn’t take up much storage, and you can change your background if you want to. It also doesn’t run wild like other tuners do. (What I mean by that is some tuners bounce from “it’s all tuned!” To “it’s horrible” within a second and it gets me confused. Tuner Lite doesn’t do that.) One thing I don’t like about Tuner Lite, though, is that it limits you to a certain amount of backgrounds “because they are only available in the payable version of the app”. Well, that doesn’t really matter that much because it’s great anyway, so I still give it 5 stars. Another thing I don’t like is that it has useless ads at the bottom. Well, I guess it doesn’t bother me too much because it doesn’t cover anything important in the app. One strange thing I noticed today is that when I clicked on the app, it wanted me to get some “music store”, when I don’t need that thing. I just need Tuner Lite and Soundcorset to practice my violin. (Check that app out too; you’ll love it!) Anyway, when I clicked on that (I had no choice)it took me to the App Store where it wanted me to buy it. No thanks. I just went back to Tuner Lite and everything was fine. I love it, and I really recommend it for every musician to use!
Tuner Lite
by SuperStarEars on 2018/10/27 01:08
I am a severely vision impaired person. I am able to magnify the screen of my phone with a special camera so that I can see A huge Lee magnified image of my iPhone screen and see the needle on tuner lite. That being said, none of the buttons of this app will work when voiceover accessibility feature is activated on the iPhone. As many vision impaired musicians as there are out there, the developers of this app should have made it accessible to those of us who want to use an electronic tuner for our instruments but need voiceover to tell us The function of each button we are activating on the screen and function correctly with the usual voiceover gestures needed for other features on the iPhone As usual, we vision impaired people are left out again when it comes to app development. This app needs to be accessible to everyone. I personally am very tired of talking to app developers about the fact that we need equal access and being told that when the ads they put in the App Store were developed, they were not meant to be used by blind people. This is really no longer acceptible. If Apple can include accessibility features on their product. App developers can make sure that their products are 100% accessible to all.
Usually pretty good
by An alpaca on 2018/02/16 17:36
It’s a nice app the whip out quickly to tune. It’s a little challenging to play and watch for intonation while working on a piece of you have the lite version. The ads will pop up covering the whole screen. Sometimes very frequently and times it’ll make you press play so you can get the video started so you can go back to tuning. That’s a little annoying. Also I ran into problems where it will stick onto one note and as play other notes, it’s frozen on that precious note until I exit out the app again.
Great App but Still Needs Work
by #TheSaxPlayerGymnast😜😉 on 2019/05/07 19:39
I am a saxophonist and I just started to use this app yesterday. It was great when I first started using it. But then I noticed a couple of annoying things. When I first got it I went to the settings and tried to change the background to one of the picture ones and it said that I have buy the other app. Also when I would get the perfect pitch on one note I either get to flat or to sharp on the next note. Some of the things that I would like to check out on the app it would not let me because I have the free version. So overall I give it three stars because it is not that open to everyone and some people would not like to pay just for the settings. So please open these settings to everyone.
Good app
by I am literally amazing on 2020/08/12 16:36
This app is a good app. I have the free version, but it works great. It’s nice to have the option to hear the note to tune to, or to have the app listen to your note and tell you how close it is to being in tune. The only thing the premium version lets you do as far as I know is to remove ads and customize the background. Neither of these things are a problem in the free version because the ads are a little strip in the bottom so they don’t interrupt your tuning. In the free version, you can still customize the background, but your options are limited. Highly recommend.
Very very glitchy and not that accurate
by MariaPSwims16 on 2019/04/01 00:08
This app is great but when I play one string on the violin, the meter goes haywire. It keeps moving to opposite ends of the spectrum- so much so that there are many times when I don’t know whether the string is flat or not. Also, referring to the slight lack in accuracy, when I play a key on my piano it is read as slightly flat by when I play an open string which sounds the exact same, it’s read as extremely sharp- sometimes even a half step above the note it’s supposed to be. Besides these two points, this app is good and convenient. However, I hope the developers are able to fix these issues.
One size fits all
by john523b on 2019/11/20 00:15
It lays out a reasonable scale. Most great tuners who use electronic tuners to create a temperament, tune the tuner to the piano and then use the adjusted scale to guide the well tempered instrument. With this app there is no such capability. The scale is laid out by primary tones as if it could be represented by 88 tuning forks that have been laid out as a temperament where one size fits all. It will work well enough on a practice piano in a music school but not for a recording or concert instrument.
Out of tune!
by Oubrat79 on 2019/01/05 21:20
I got this app for my violin and it seemed to work fine the first time I used it. Today I got out my violin and since I hadn’t messed with it for a couple days I wanted to check the it. I turned on the app and it said all my strings were really out of tune. I assumed it was because of the humidity change in the air and went to retuning my violin. After several frustrating minutes I went to test my pitch with my electric piano and every note was WAY OFF! I decided to test the app with the piano and the app is wrong on every note. It reads a C as a D. It is either a half or whole step off on every note! Now I am trying to find an actual tuner so I can fix what this app screwed up.
Really?
by musicislife169 on 2018/05/21 22:08
I used this app to tune my clarinet and when I played a C it said that it was VERY flat (-50) then for the next 10 minutes I kept on trying to get a perfect C and I couldn’t! Then I decided to test this app with my piano, that was tuned shortly ago (a few months ago) I don’t play my piano that much, I play it about 30 minutes a day everyday and it’s in pretty good condition. I played a C on my piano and this app said it was a D!Honestly I don’t know what to say about this app, it works pretty good for others but I don’t understand what happened here! I’m giving this app two stars for actually being able to detect sounds.
Best loud easy to use metronome that’s free
by DoftheKing on 2019/09/12 19:00
All it takes is one finger to turn it on or adjust the tempo. I don’t have to put everything down pick it up etc. Don’t bother paying for one yes there are ads there at the bottom I don’t even see them because I’m not looking at the metronome I’m listening to it. If I happen to look at it or my students do they don’t get in the way we don’t even notice them.
Why is it soo hard...
by ttsavage30 on 2019/07/19 23:55
So I recently bought this new viola, that needed to be tuned. A4,D4,G3,C3 when I tune my A string and come as it perfect, then when I move to the next string. I go back to check if it’s going to give me my A4, but it always comes back F#3, but just a minute ago it was A3. It seems like the app is giving my inaccurate tuning, it’s been a great app but I need my tuning to be correct. I do understand that the apps on my phone, but I go through these reviews about people having wonderful experiences, but I don’t. I’m going to try it out one more time, if the app works I’ll continue using the app.
Ruined by the ads
by ilviolin on 2018/02/17 00:13
I used to love this app because I found it to work well. I would have given it 5 stars. The last time I tried to use it, though, there was an ad at the bottom that automatically expanded to engulf the entire screen with a video clip of a puppy. When I closed the full screen ad, it would pop back open again within a few seconds, rendering the app completely useless. This problem persisted after closing and reopening the app several times. Now I am on the search for another tuning app; a friend of mine uses PitchLab and it seems to work well for her, so I might give that one a try.
Pretty good app
by WhentheMusic'sOver26 on 2017/08/31 03:47
It's a good app if you need a quick tune. I would not however substitute this for an actual chromatic tuner. The chromatic pitches are rather weak so it's hard to play an instrument with the tuner if needed (I play mainly acoustic instruments). Lastly, in my opinion the tuner is rather "noncommittal". At times it works but if the same note is played three or four times the subtle differences are not the same (the pitch is the same so there's a slight inaccuracy with the app. Overall it's good but not the best and cannot be used with precise intonation practice purposes)
Last fix cleared longstanding mandolin g string issues
by Dmiley2952 on 2017/09/02 13:15
Maybe mandolins get no respect, but the previous update killed the ability to tune at all. Perhaps because of attention to my instrument of choice, the g string tuning is now much, much better. Thanks for dealing with this quickly and even making an improvement. Now if I can remember my apple id and password, I might even buy it
VERY IMPORTANT! MUST READ🤨
by Sonce44 on 2018/11/29 15:44
When I first bought this app everything was fine and dandy.👍 It was a quick and easy way to tune all my instruments.🎻🎸🎤 I usually tune by myself at home with my flute, detach it and tune with my band at school. This app worked well, until 1️⃣ day my tuner app said all my 🎶 were one 🎵 above were they were supposed to be. I was furious, I had a concert in two weeks😱😱 and I assumed my flute was broken... But something didn’t sit right with me 🧐 I went on my 🎹 to play an A🎵, my standard tuning note and the 🎹 and my flute were perfectly in tune🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯. The tuner app is EXTREMELY wrong. DO NOT USE THIS APP!!!!!!!
Finally!
by Hawk327 on 2018/12/10 14:41
I’ve gone through quite a few tuner apps, GuitarTuna etc. and they’re all about money for a custom tuning. I like to tune my guitars/bass/etc a bit low, I have a high b right now not an e, it works for me and my style. So nice to just have it dial in ANY note without having to work your way through a ridiculous menu or sign up or pay money. Thank you guys!
Great app!
by TWBud on 2018/11/08 21:46
I am not a musician, but have a couple of instruments that I wanted to tune, and this was the perfect app. It shows not only the note, but the meter showed the degree the strings were off. I even used it on a Tibetan Singing Bowl to see if it was the correct pitch! 🙂 if I were a musician, I would probably have purchased the app, but as it was, the free was more than I had hoped for.
Generally rather good
by ABWReviews on 2018/07/03 22:32
It’s quick and convenient to tune— especially when practicing on the go, but I wouldn’t suggest substituting it for a regular tuner. As far as apps go, it is rather great, but the proliferation of ads and tendency to freeze up when playing makes it hard to watch for intonation as you play. However, with it being a free tuning app, I would certainly recommend it.
Good tuner, but some stability problems
by 36:)1&;&197()482 on 2018/04/14 00:44
I use this for practicing the violin, and it’s overall good, but my big issue with it is when the tuner sometimes freezes. It’s easily fixed when I press the left button to turn it on and off again, but not being consistent would be my only problem with it.
20 year pro review
by zack rosicka on 2017/11/08 00:04
I’ve been playing professionally for 20 years. I know a good/accurate tuner. This app has been amazing when I don’t bring a pedalboard to a solo gig as well as changing strings. Perfect pitch and very accurate, yes I’m disagreeing with the other reviews here. This free product is Amazing! Thanks to the owners and designers, way to give back. Thank you. Zack Rosicka
Great!
by Old Town Road Horse on 2019/11/19 21:39
Much better then my last one. At first it is confusing but then you’ll get the hang of it! Just click the big button on the left and then play a note. It will say which note it thinks it is and if it is great, too low, or too high. Like I said, much better then my last one!
It works!
by Haletotheno on 2018/12/24 00:21
I like the fact that it doesn’t drown you inside of ads. Every. Other. Second. And, it actually works! One of my sisters completely untuned my instrument and my tuner was left at school. So, I looked at apps, and this is the only one that really works. Completely recommended this to other string players!
Ehh it’s ok
by 163647284842 on 2018/04/26 01:06
Like I mean it’s good of showing what notes your playing but the thing is I also use vocals to check myself but the thing is I think the numbers are a little off. Like I’ll play F4 but it’ll say F3, and then I’ll check and I’m actually playing the right note but it’s just says it’s wrong. Idk I think there is a bug.
Best tuner app!
by PS1234567 on 2020/07/10 07:26
In a world where features are king (even though they actually aren’t) having a product that simply does what it’s supposed to do and does it well is so very refreshing. This is the best tuner app hands down. No contest. To the developer, please don’t ever change this. It’s perfect. Keep it perfect forever.
Frequently Freezes
by Killrpotato on 2018/05/30 19:32
If you let the app run for about 3-4 minutes, it will freeze on a single note and won’t help you tune any other notes. The only way to fix it is to close the app entirely then reopen it. It’s also really annoying to have to tap on the tuner button when you open the app; it should automatically begin tuning. Despite the drastic technical issues, it’s a really good tuner but it could be much better.
Best tuner app ever!
by JapaneseTeacher on 2018/07/11 02:50
It catches the note quickly, along with fluctuations if your pitch keeps going sharp or flat within the same note. It is simple as doesn’t restart if you switch to a different app and then switch back. This is a mandatory app for many musicians, especially string players!
Better than all tuning apps
by TalkingBed on 2018/01/23 07:00
Aesthetics aside I have no clue why I had to sift through so many bad tuning apps to find this one. It's the way a tuning app should be, easily accessible while not being over simplistic- like the actual, physical, established tuners. Alternative tunings are free as they should be!
Great app
by 835448Nm on 2018/06/04 08:38
This is literally the only tuner I use everyday all day....for my acoustic guitar my electric guitars and my three bass guitars. I own tuners that cost some good money and definitely are worth it but the best thing about this app is that I don’t have to plug my guitars into it. I just pull my phone out of my pocket set it down open the app and tune away. It simply and easy to use it’s accurate and it has worked every time and if you get bored with it you can change the theme on it and it’s like you got a new tuner... To who ever made this app thank and keep up the good work.
Solid little app!
by AppleNickName222 on 2020/03/25 01:20
We’re “sheltering in place” here which means the violin teacher can’t tune the kids’ violins for us. And my wife and I haven’t a clue about music. Enter this app + a little patience. Violin sounds wonderful, and we’re making progress while staying isolated. Perfect!
Better than the rest
by guitarsare cool1234 on 2018/07/16 05:39
Always had good results with this app. Works great in a quiet environment, and will also do the job if there are other voices, or sounds around. Haha remember saying “hey can you guys keep it down. I have to tune my guitar!!!” Hope this help. Keep on keeping on dudes
Free “Lite” version does the basics
by Paddle farther on 2019/06/02 05:43
Free version is nothing fancy, just shows (1) notation & analog type meter, or (2) provides audible tone. Bass guitar can throw some tuners - this one doesn’t trip. Only complaints are that a) noisy background confuses the meter, b) the A-440 tone is too quiet to hear in all but quietest environment. Neither a problem in practice room.
goes off
by Ft.jacen on 2019/04/22 20:24
i have perfect pitch. and i have this tuner so it can help me stay more on key when i sing, and helps me see if my piano is tuned. and sometimes i’ve noticed if i move a few half-steps down too quickly, it throws off the machine’s pitch. luckily i KNOW when it’s off because i’m given the advantage of having pitch myself, but it ALMOST made me think i was wrong, however i knew i wasn’t. that should be fixed.
Especially good if you play in 432 (A)
by William J Cote on 2018/04/30 16:37
I’ve discovered that my music sounds much better when my band tunes to 432 instead of the standard 440. This tuner makes it easy to calibrate to other pitches which isnt offered in most tuners. (Thanks for including that feature!)
Tuner keeps stopping
by rt peasant on 2019/09/24 13:48
The tuner works for maybe ten seconds then it stops working. It seems to correspond to when the ad at the bottom of the screen changes. I have to stop what I’m doing, reach down and turn the tuner off and on to get it working again. Very frustrating. Please fix this bug! Other than that, it’s a nice app when it works.
Could be better but couldn’t be freer- thanks!
by hdjajdbxbdh on 2020/03/20 23:07
Sometimes it has trouble figuring out the note being played. Takes a few minutes to get it just right. Get a paid app if you need it tuned faster, I guess :)
Accurate tune app ever!
by Mehmet Eraslan on 2019/12/12 18:01
I downloaded about 5 violin tune app almost all of them was junk with crazy ads. This app is the only accurate tune app ever. Surprisingly it’s free and ads free app. Thank you so much for an amazing app which makes my training easy :)
Good Work!
by Violin Love🎻❤️❤️🎻❤️❤️ on 2020/07/04 03:26
Since we are at home and probably don’t have anything to do and you have a Violin that went out of tune or needs to be tuned then this is the app for you! This app helped A TON. Because Violinist my self! But I can’t tune my Violin yet so this really helps. I really do Recommend this!
Very good!!
by Allofyhenicknamesweretaken😁 on 2020/02/21 03:15
I really like this app, not only because it’s free and easy to use, but it’s accurate, and helps me hurry and get my instrument or whatever I’m playing ready to go, because the more I practice the better I get. And with Tuner Lite, it makes me better.
Very simple, very good. The Goldilocks of simple tuners.
by Performing Arts Prof. on 2017/09/08 04:59
Many tuners actually react too quickly for variable pitch instruments- voice, winds etc. The needle jumps all over with the small fluctuations in pitch. This one is adjustable from a very slow to a very quick response. Also, there are a lot of tuner apps that you need to take a night class to learn to operate. This one is wonderfully simple. And yet! This is one of the few tuners that has exact hash marks for Just intonation of 3rds (major down 14 cents, and minor thirds up 16 cents.) This is an excellent simple tuner!
Works very well
by Tony the Farmer on 2019/02/05 02:16
I give this top rating as it does everything i need and probably more The cost of a small clip on tuner is not bad but this is free, download click on the tuning fork and tune. No BS ad's nothing just good old reliable tuning Thanks for the awesomeness
Easy to use and accurate
by badger biy on 2020/06/07 21:21
Have an antique Mills Violano, approx 100 years old but fully restored. When it came time to tune the violin the task was extremely easy and highly accurate. Thank you for developing this wonderful app!!
It’s ok
by Christmas Rules! on 2018/06/07 21:20
The app is ok if you have a slight tuning issue, but if it’s pretty major (laughs at unintended pun), it tunes my instrument really sharp. It’s probably just me, I’m not sure. The ads get really annoying, too. I find it easier to just listen to the note and try and match it because the actual tuning part of the app doesn’t work well with my instrument (cello)
On a scale from 1 - 10, I give it a decent
by Wildanimalhere on 2018/05/14 07:18
Quick and convenient, I mean, it’s on my phone so...more often than not I at least think I know where it is. I had to move some numbers around...tighten up the ol’ belt, in the parlance of our times, to afford it. Not to say it’s not priced appropriately, ‘cause it is...it’s a free, easy tuner app that works, what’s not to like?
Tuner lite....really like it because...
by 8-19-8 on 2020/04/18 02:39
When I use this to tune my classical guitar, as the meter comes to “zero” for each string I can hear my guitar come alive. I’m not much of an artist, but this app helps me sound better than I am! Many thanks!
Great App
by Jdog74789 on 2019/09/15 16:05
I’ve been using this app for years. It is amazing, especially for a free app. There are very small adds on the bottom, not a big deal. It’s accurate and easy to use. Stop looking, you’ve found your tuner.
Pretty accurate
by Leo the Violin on 2018/11/26 05:28
I’m currently working on the Mendelssohn concerto for violin and I’m finding this tuner more effective than my old tuner purchased from a shop. My teacher also uses this tuner. I like how precise it is, more precise than my old tuner.
Always reliable and works as expected
by a12346838 on 2020/03/22 18:13
Saved me $ from buying a tuner. Also convenient that I don’t need to worry about carrying a tuner around since I can just use this app on my phone

Don’t get me wrong it’s a great app but I can’t tune my clarinet properly because I don’t have the full version and all the basics are in the full version so you need to make and update were every body can use all the different features but until then you can have a terrible rating because not every body has money to pay to get a full version
