A chromatic tuner and pitch pipe used by over a million musicians.
Pitched Tuner and Pitch Pipe has been designed by musicians to help you quickly and easily tune your instrument using the microphone on your device.
It works well for a wide range of instruments: Ukulele, violin, mandolin, flute, guitars, voice, and more. Even very low bass strings can be tuned. Simple controls and clear visuals make it great for beginners. Responsive and precise algorithms provide professional level accuracy for more advanced players.
Hands free tuning means you can tune all of your strings without ever having to touch the screen - you don't want to have to reach for your ukulele tuner in between tuning each string, and now you don't have to.
This tuner app has two modes:
- Instrument tuner
- Chromatic tuner
The instrument tuner shows you the target notes for the instrument and tuning that you have selected - this is particularly useful for stringed instruments. For example a guitar tuner would show the notes EADGBE if you chose standard guitar tuning, or DADGBE if you chose drop D tuning. Or a violin tuner would show GDAE. You can then just play each string and the tuner will identify whether you are in tune. Pitched Tuner has built in tunings for many common instruments including banjo, bass 4, 5 and 6 string, cello, double bass, guitar including 7 string, ukulele, viola and violin. If your instrument or your preferred tuning aren't included then you can easily create your own in the app. Please email us if you want your tuning added to the built in ones.
The chromatic tuner displays the note that is closest to what is currently being played. If you play an A, it shows an A. This is useful for instruments with lots of notes (piano tuning for example). Some stringed players might also prefer this mode - particularly if you play instruments with several common tunings such as the guitar (it's personal preference!). It means you can quickly tune your guitar from standard to drop D without having to touch the app (assuming it's already visible on your screen).
Pitched Tuner displays a traditional tuner needle and dial. It clearly shows the frequency being played as well as the nearest note and error in cents (one cent is one hundredth of a semitone). The dial then allows you to easily track small changes in pitch. A separate volume indicator tells you how clearly the microphone is picking up your instrument sound.
Other features include:
- Vary the reference tuning pitch away from the common 440Hz.
- Able to adjust for non-concert pitch instruments, for example the B-flat trumpet.
- Choice of light or dark themes
- Adjust the volume sensitivity of the app for quieter instruments and noisy environments.
This tuning app also works as a pitch pipe and can sound a reference note to tune your instrument by ear (which is always a good skill to practice), or use as a target note when you are re-stringing your guitar/violin/etc. You can choose from a pure sine sound, which is precise but quiet, or a simulated piano, guitar or clarinet.

Ratings and Reviews
Not dependable lately
Why does it listen to one note and freeze? I have to wait for it to decide it wants to work again before I can continue tuning. I’ve had this app a long time and it’s been a true blue tool, but recently it’s not been so great. Sorry guys.
Update: thought I’d see if purchasing the no ad version would make a difference. It absolutely did. Without the ads, the program works flawlessly. I don’t think that’s how it was intended to be, but after using it this long and it continues to work, I have no problem paying 1.99.
It’s okay- pretty good for tuning (obviously lol)
Four stars because I use it pretty regularly, only because I practice singing. I’m getting less and less tone deaf whenever i use it :) I’ve been using this app a lot and not really any ads- didn’t even pay for anything. The only ads I remember are the ones saying: Hey if you want the instrumentative thing you have to download another app- or if you want the metronome thing you also have to also download another app- (I probably wouldn’t use those often) but you can just tune instruments or your voice pretty well. (You can even hear the note and then try to sing, and there’s also a pretty precise thing where it will tell you exactly how much higher or lower you need to play the note) I like it a lot- if you need any tuning you should definitely use this app :) (also btw you might need to actually select the instrument that you want to tune)
Best out there in my opinion
Not much to dislike about this app, and I do set up some setting up guitars for people all the time and I'm a freak about intonation. So I'm a professional at this. The one thing that irks me as I don't need to see the message to tuneup with an! Or tune down. Yes I know what I'm doing and that kind of thing annoys me that little message popping up. Of course I know if I need to tune or tune down.!!! Otherwise the app is amazing.
