A very nice tuner! I'm stunned at how accurate, sensitive and stable it is. Better than my other dedicated tuners. It can get a little confused with the low notes on a bass guitar, but if you tune using harmonics it's as solid as a rock. Highly recommended!... 2017 Update: First review was in 2013, and now I'm on the new version. Works great to tune my double bass and electric basses across three different Android devices. Perfect!
Update is Rubbish I've never commented on an App before, but I had to comment on this update. The original G strings was THE best and most reliable tuning app out there. It was accurate and the needle moved like an analogue needle. This update is utter crap. I've been a loyal user and recommended the previous version to all my friends. This version will very likely get deleted as I go on the hunt for a new one. Really disappointing as I paid for the original and that's the one I want to keep using. Bring back the old!!!!!
The updated version is terrible! I use this tuner all the time and I really hope that you guys go back to the drawing board and bring back some of the previous versions features. I tune a bass and before the update it was very responsive and tuned perfectly but now it can't seem to tell the difference between which string that I am turning and it takes a really long time to get my instrument in tune. Used to be a great app.
Honest Review... Look, I appreciate that a lot of work went into this and the developers have every right to be proud of how hard they worked... But, using them side by aide, Waves locks on quicker and is more frequently accurate in auto mode. Tuning my B string is hell in this new app. Also, the aide slide outs, while a good idea feature wise, are ugly and out of place as is. I don't know. Thank you for all of your work but, if you were going to discontinue development on one to work on the other, I feel you chose poorly.
Horrible & useless! Stay away! I bought this a long time ago and loved it. The developer came out with a new app, waves, which simply didn't work. He has now turned this into a replica of that POS. ABSOLUTELY FUNCTIONLESS!
Concur with other reviews As a long time owner, this new version clearly had a lot of work, but why? You want us on Waves, right? The old version of g strings was far better. This new one is just clunky - the side buttons for auto and such appear to just be haphazardly placed. Anyway, Tunable is now my go-to tuner, metronome, and recording app. You guys can learn a lot from them.
What's new? Everything! v2.0 is a complete rewrite of the successful, but aging tuner released 7 years ago. It has an updated fundamental detection engine, fancy material design and a few new tricks up its sleeve. Hope you like it.
1. improved fundamental frequency detection,
2. fixed tinting of appcompat radio button selectors.
