Perfectionists beware I really like the fact that you can turn the microphone on and off in this app, rather than it just automatically turning on when you open the app, but as you're tuning the needle never holds still, and never shows that you've achieved a good 440 tuning. This means that the app can only be used as a general guide and, if the inability to make something perfect drives you crazy then it might be better to find a different app.
For my violin, it just works. I had had issues with other tuner apps that were, by default, synced to the wrong frequencies for each note. This one had it correctly right off the batch! Easy, simple and reliable. However, as mentioned by another reviewer, if you a strict perfectionist, you might need to do SLIGHT touch ups by yourself just to be safe. Nothing major, just a head's up. 4.5/5
I think that this app is pretty accurate; it is really sensitive to my violin pitches. But on the dark theme, the flat and sharp signs don't show up. I think this is because they're black instead of being changed to white to match the theme. Just wanted to let the developer know. ☺️
This is the best alternative for Gstring. I used Gstring for years and than suddenly they changed the whole interface and some functions, and it just didnt worked for me, untill i found this app. Please dont even change anything about this app, its already great
There is a tiny inconvenience because of a bug I use it to tune my viola and sometimes when I want to check first my a and then my D string it keeps saying "a" until I stop to play and start again. Otherwise perfect 👌
Very helpful tool to have One complaint about the new string tunings: no 5 or 6 string bass? I mean, you include a 5 string double bass (Who has those?) but no 5 or 6 string electric basses (almost ubiquitous these days). Just a thought...
