Ratings and Reviews
I love all the features of this tuner. I love the different tuning selections for the guitar and other string instruments. I use it tune my guitar, bass, cello, etc. I even suggest this tuner to my music students, because of accuracy and easy reading when the instrument is in tune.
This tuner is missing 2 important instruments in its lists of string instruments. It does not have a 7th, 8th, or 9th string guitar tuning. I had to get another tuner for that. It is also missing a mandolin tuner, once again have to go with another tuner. This is very disappointing! Please add these instruments in. Also would I would add like the fiddle or other string instruments. so other Then this would be the perfect string instrument tuner!
Perfect + what would make this app better
Through my years (3 years) of playing guitar and mandolin I’ve struggled to find a perfect tuner; most of the ones I’ve used aren’t spot on to the note, can’t pick up sound, and have a terrible design. But fine tuner has a simple design with no complexity, and is able to pick up your instrument over others playing around you. And after a year of using this tuner, I think it’s safe to say that this is the tuning perfect tuning app.
One thing that I would love to see, is the l
“favorite” feature where you favorite your tuning so that way you can easily get to it instead of surfing through all the others. I often switch from open g, to standard, to dadgad, and many others and often find it time consuming to find the tuning I’m looking for. Although it’s not a puzzle to get to your tuning, it would be easier with the favorite feature.
This app is perfect and is my preferred tuner. Well worth the inexpensive cost of purchase for the full app. Improvements suggested would be saving preferred instrument tunings to the top of the list, and adding additional tuning standards such as E4=333hz (whatever that would equate to with the A4) seems like it would be rather easy for a mathematical function to reproduce more settings... perhaps an variable slider with value inputs. Additionally, the dark theme is perfect in my view. Might be worth while to include some sort of linked information on when and how metal and nylon (and etc.) strings will likely break. Perhaps another reading on purchasing new strings and descriptions of various tunings links (their vibes, their feel, their usage, etc.)
