With Moto G, problem with adding custom temperaments. A brilliant app on my old Samsung phone. Only one gripe: couldn't find info on the built-in temperaments. To describe a temp. as "almost-equal" or "early French" is really vague & unhelpful. But I fed in some temperaments which I regularly use, and it all worked fine. But I bought a Morotola Moto G in May 2014. The app works ok EXCEPT that it's impossible to add new temperaments. I contacted Bitcount support on May 24, they said they'd look into fixing the problem. No news since. The version on Google play was updated in 2012. The blurb here says "We regularly obtain new Android devices to test compatibility. Currently Cleartune does not support very small screens, but we are unaware of any other compatibility issues on any device . If you have any issues with Cleartune, please let us know so we can obtain your specific device for testing." This statement is unconvincing. It has been untrue since May 2014 that "we are unaware of any other compatibility issues on any device".
Nearly the Best, but it does have it's Deficiencies For the most part a very inexpensive, flexible and accurate app. For the professional, using various temperaments, and actually needing to tune movable frets to separate sharps and flats, this app lacks the one thing that would make it perfection over my VioLab tuner. Until custom programmable temperaments are available in the Android app, or the ability to tune sharps and flats separately in meantone temperaments, I have to rate it low. Sorry.
can't be beat for a phone tuner this is a great backup tool to (literally) keep in my pocket at a gig in case something goes wrong with my actual tuning devices. since i always have my phone on hand it's been a great investment. i wouldn't choose to use it as a primary but I know other players who do. works best with a clear signal, ie in a quiet room or perched in front of an amp. I can get reliable enough results by placing it on the bridge of my upright bass, which is saying something as not all tuners do well with the low frequencies.
Very inconsistent I have struggled for two years with this app. I find it very inconsistent and it freezes quite often. I play lever harp, and often am the only instrument in the room . The needle jumps constantly, and after so many attempts to get it to work, I threw in the towel and bought Linostrobe, and am completely happy with that app - it quickly determines a string's pitch and displays it clearly on my Samsung Galaxy Five - Cleartune's needle is not easy to read - LinoStrobe uses color as an additional aid to signal when a string's pitch is correct. It's unfortunate that I have had to write this review, and have tried to give developers the benefit of the doubt, but I haven't seen any significant improvement since I purchased this - I believed the hype about it being the one tuning app every professional musician needs. I would encourage you to try the free version before buying...but I would recommend LinoStrobe over Cleartune any day.
2 Stars because it's not working properly for the past while. Worked perfectly the years I've had it up until now. The app generally freezes upon opening now. I uninstall it then and download again, 50% of the time it starts working otherwise I have to go through the process again. I'm using the app on a OnePlus 3T.
Al the Bone Great little app - very clear display, and bright. Ideal for sitting on a music stand. Low brass players need to exercise care as my phone struggled towards pedal notes - prob the phone not the app.
Improved performance and fluidity of UI
Fixed scaling issues on larger screens
Added frequency display option
Instant response with Needle Damping at 0
