“It was the best I found. Is useful for basic historical tuning with A=414/30.” by Bach_lover

“I’ve probably downloaded over a dozen different tuner and metronome applications but this is the best tuner I’ve found. I recommend it to all my students to help them tune at home and for the basic metronome. I’ve been using this for at least a year and I’ve found it to be most accurate tuner, and the most intuitive for my younger learners. The metronome gives you plenty of control and different sounds, nothing to complain about there either.” by string teacher VivaViolas

“The app was great before and it just got better. The developer implemented several request from its users in its update.” by Museike

“I am a music student in high school and was suggested to get a tuner app. When I first found this app six months ago, I thought it was a simple and easy to use app that came with a metronome. With the update, it got even better. The pitch pipe, new signature, and easy iOS 7 interface in portrait and landscape views makes it the best app on the market for musicians. Keep it up!” by Jpwizard6329

One of the best apps of its kind. But DRAINS BATTERY!!!

Really this is one of the best apps of its kind.

BUT, it stays alive in the background forever. Settings->Battery usage showed I used his app for 10 minutes in the last 24 hours and it was active for 12 hours and used 40% of my battery. This should be fixed!!! (On iPhone 5S, iOS 10.2.1 - thanks for the response from the developer but no contact info and website link is a generic page.)

Only other suggestion is when I'm tapping in time to estimate the BPM, you should show the average over the last 10 taps or so. It will help get a much more precise estimate of the music speed.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for reporting this. I'll look into it. Can you email me your iOS version and iPhone model. Thanks again!


Buy this, not a physical metronome.

Although getting everything on this app costs a little bit for an app, it's way more worth your while to buy than than to replace a $20 metronome, and the full app costs less than a third the price of one real metronome that you would have to replace every 6-12 months. 1 concern. I think that the pitch pipe should work with the metronome in the background. The metronome will currently just turn off if u switch to anything else, i don't think it should for the pitch pipe.

I love this app... wish it didn’t crash

I absolutely love this app, and highly recommend for anyone looking for the metronome and tuner. It’s got a lot of great features. I have the iPhone 8plus and am experiencing the app crashing almost every time I run it... other than that it’s a thumbs up!
