Still the absolute best, period!

I’ve been playing guitar for about 20 years. Rock, jazz, blues, some country. I actually started playing classical guitar. Needless to say, I’ve used many tuners. BOSS, Korg, Peterson Strobostomp on my pedalboard, you name it I’ve probably owned it at one point. On my iPhone I’ve tried SO many tuner apps, paid and free, I can’t even count how many. The truth is (and any player who’s worth their salt will tell you the same) that none of them are any good. They’re not accurate and don’t track well. Until now that is! Seriously, this is the app I’ve been waiting for. It’s not only better than any app I’ve used, but it’s also way better than my expensive hardware tuners. AND has a ton of crazy features. Nothing comes close, just get it.

fffffffffffffffppppppppp ,

Hate it

This app was bad. First your better off get the version where you have to pay and you are just better using another app

Developer Response ,

VITALtuner comes in 2 varieties, both of which have the exact same functionality. VITALtuner is free to download, and offers 1 tuning mode for free, along with the ability to unlock those features that are relevant to your tuning needs. It's about flexibility in deciding what you actually need over time, considering that VITALtuner is jam packed with features. For example, if you're a beginner you may not have a use for creating custom Offsets at this point in time, but if you're a professional that may be a game changer. VITALtuner Pro is a separate paid app that offers everything already unlocked, for those users who already know that they want everything and prefer to pay upfront.
