No longer functional

This was a nice and very useful app, but has died of bit rot and is apparently no longer supported. Developer, please consider open sourcing if you are not able to maintain it? It’s a nice piece of work and deserves better.

As someone who tunes professionally for a living, this app is a godsend for harpsichords and clavichord Tuning. Generally I tune by fork and I can do many historic temperaments that way, but with the pitch pipe on this; it is a whole new level with so many more options. Love this app! And let me just also note: the interface is so easy to use. Perfection all the way around.

Needs an update !!

Needs an update! Doesn’t talk to the mic on Iphone xs os12.1 ! Love the temperament selections. A small tweak would fix all this. Emailed the admin with no response!
