A cool, creative approach! Rather than using a sliding indicator or needle, this app shows the current tone as an updating sound "history" moving around a straight "precise pitch" line. No note played on an acoustic instrument is steady—the very act of playing it changes its pitch—so in this way, this app's more "honest" than those that average notes out to more general tunings. I just wish the lines were larger and easier to see—there's certainly enough horizontal space to do that.

This is a GREAT visual tuner, but the drones only seem to work when I have my finger on the screen. On flute, I can't play all the notes if my fingers aren't on the instrument so I can't compare my intonation to the drone. It would be wonderful if the drone notes would keep playing so I can get visual and auditory feedback as I practice my intonation.

It does a nice job of helping to visualize vibrato. For my needs, the lack of tuning system variations is a deal breaker, but that's not important for most people (I tune to 1/5 comma meantone, or a later circulating temperament).
