What happened?

This used to be my favorite app of any on my iPad and iPhone. I recommended it to every guitarist I knew. BUT recently, after Apple OS updates, the Tuner stopped working. I’ve written to Agile a couple of times asking if there would be a fix—no response.

I am fearing the company no longer exists as there have been no app updates for years (as far as I know). Too bad, a great loss to guitarists everywhere. I would gladly pay for this app again if the tuner worked. But without that very important function, I now need another app on my phone for tuning.

I am writing this review to warn new shoppers off if they are looking for an app with a guitar tuner that works. The two stars are for the other great features of this app which I am still sold on. But, for me, it’s gone from an indispensable app to a decent app for certain things.

Best of the best!

This app replaced dozens of guitar AND bass reference books for me and since I like experimenting with alternate tunings it definitely has been my most valuable tool. The ability to make chord sheets alone is worth the price. I have searched and searched over the years and no other app has come even remotely close to the layout, ease of use, sound and style. I have used it for learning and practice almost daily for probably 10yrs and at least 4 iPhones. Usually for several hours at a time too. It has never crashed or given me false tuning readings(what? I blame the operator lol). So with regard to the the 1star reviews - they either have ulterior motives, didn’t give it a chance or like paying for expensive subscriptions because GuitarToolkit is unbeatable.
In those ten years the only thing that I could think of that it can’t do is stick a printable scale diagram or two on my chord sheets. Other than that, I think it set the bar pretty high since most of the others are only now starting to catch up.
I’ve very highly recommended this to my students, family and friends and will continue to do so as long as it’s around.

Amazing for music theory

When I started playing the guitar many years ago, this was what I used all the time. I just realized that I never wrote a review for this this, and I practically use it everyday.

For those complaining about the tuner not working. I actually found a weird way to fix it. Go to the fretboard part and press a note around the lower G. Wait a little for the sound to quiet down a little and then go back to the tuner. The phone may screech due to its own feedback if the sound didn’t die down enough.

I agree, it’s pretty annoying that the tuner used to be great, but honestly you can find a tuner anywhere, but the ability to identify chords and scales and the huge selection of scales is amazing. It has every scale I have ever heard of except for the Phrygian Dominant (Harmonic Minor starting at the 5th).
