What a huge disappointment. No way to enter offsets. I am a pedal steel player, and we have offsets needed to accurately tune. That is built in to most of their tuners. The iPhone app has sweetened tunings that you can buy to give you offsets that we need. Petersen has obviously decided that Android users are not important enough to make this feature available to us. I use a Stroboflip right now, but it would be nice to use my phone. This app can work if you have a chart of your offsets, or memorize them. A decent app, but too much work for a pedal steel player.
Not the IOS version I build percussion instruments with short sustain. I got this app on an old iPhone 4 when I was building some marimba keys. Worked better than any other app I tried. I recently had another similar build, but now have a galaxy s5. I tried some free tuners with no luck so decided to buy this again but for Android. Not nearly the options or features of iOS version. It wouldn't register the keys to tune them. I pulled out my old iPhone and ran them side by side... iPhone registered every hit on the key.
I have a Peterson Strobo-clip and this package is every bit as accurate. If you read the manual and take the time to understand what it is telling you you should in no way have an issue... This is a really handy item to carry with you without the excess bulk of a tuner. I can't say enough good about the whole matter...
Website says it has sweetened tunings available...which was the ONLY reason I spent 9.99 on the app. The Droid app does NOT even offer a way to get them. Wanted to use it for the "James Taylor" acoustic tuning...before spending $140+ to get the desktop stroboplus hd...well...
I really like this tuning app because of it's accuracy and the aesthetics, but I wish there was some way to adjust the microphone settings on my phone (1st gen Moto X) through the app because right now the tuning app is barely registering any sound coming from my instrument. It seemed like my friend's iPhone was a lot more sensitive to sound - not sure if that was because of the app or device. I even purchased the adaptor cable hoping to use it with a pickup mic, but it doesn't seem to be working... I read reviews of the adaptor saying that it worked with android devices, and I thought it would work with my phone as well.
HORRIBLE TOTALLY out of tune. I have the REAL Peterson tuner in my studio. This app is completely off. I have no idea what they did but the calibration is garbage. Awful. I've seen people complaining about the smoothness... no problem there. Works fine. Hears the guitar no problem. Just not in tune. So off. I have a Samsung Note 3.
Added support for larger screens.
