Just opened this and tuned up after guitar pro kept stalling in the tools menu after last update. Didn't feel like wiping the app data. No long term use yet, but the response is quick and the old epi sounds pretty fukn decent. In comparison to other apps, I'm impressed. I've always felt that a dedicated tuner always sounds better, but first impressions tell me this version is pretty dialed in.
I think this app is great. It is very convenient and easy to tune in a short time. My favorite part is that it shows a steady stream of sound so you know how extreme of an adjustment to make, and it doesn't have any glitches or problems loading. I've had many tuners that you have to pick light or hard with but with this app, no matter how you pick the strings, it gives you a good reading. I would definitely recommend this to guitarists and beginners, I know I enjoy it :)
Good tuner, but you have to pay if you want your guitar in any other tuning. Why do you just make people pay up front? I wasted my time waiting on this to download. Just to have to find another. I am not going to buy a tuner on my phone.. I have one, just left it at band practice. Just needed one real quick.
Its a cool app as in I can custom add my tunings, but the reason I spent money on it was for more than just a handful of the many many and constantly added tunings out there. They must be added manually if you wish to tune to something other than basically standard tunings besides 2 or 3 extra. Second reason I spent money on it was because the app seemed to have an array of chords but they only give you the basics. I'll still be using this app a lot as a tuner and tunings customizer and as unique chords and tunings are added I will improve my rating.
I must admit that I didn't think this app would actually work well before I tried it, but I'm very pleasantly surprised. Been using it for a couple of years now and it's the best tuning app I've found. Way more convenient than messing around with my old guitar tuner. Can't recommend it highly enough.
I love this app! I bought the extra packs for tunings and on my Droid Play, everything is dead on across all tunings. I use the app 99.9% of the time for tuning, but I like the extra features it has and am sure to get bored one day and explore those features more. As for the freebie version, TOTALLY worth it for standard tuning players... If you are into more experimental (i.e, open, drop tunings) the extra tuning packs have proven WELL worth the $15 or $20 I spent to access them.. I'm not 100% on this, and will check immediately after posting this review, but I think if you purchase the extra tunings this app will allow you to create and save your own custom tunings as well. Never crashes, never bugs.. GREAT app!
