Pitch-perfect guitar tuners

There are probably as many guitar-tuner apps as there are ways to play the blues. Finding the right one for you is highly personal, but we recommend starting with these apps. They all offer features that hit an especially high note.

PolyTune

Instead of getting you to play each string individually, PolyTune lets you strum them all at once. It also somehow manages to show which strings are sharp or flat simultaneously – there’s no faster way to get in tune.

Works with guitar and bass.

Fender Tune

Advanced guitar players will appreciate the little extras in this app, such as the ability to play the pitch of each string from the tuning screen (great for tuning by ear) and robust support for alternate tunings. The app has over a dozen tunings pre-set and you can program your own.

Works with guitar, bass and ukulele.

iStroboSoft

This app distills professional level features into a clean interface, giving you unprecedented precision. An in-app upgrade, called a “sweetener,” mitigates common intonation problems that plague guitars.

Works with most instruments.

Pitch

This one bills itself as a “musical fitness coach,” analysing how often you sing or play in tune when you practice. Its simple interface makes it a worthy go-to guitar tuner, too. The entire screen helpfully turns green when you've hit the right frequency.

Works with most instruments.
