    Whether you already know how to play the piano, Kalimba or drums, you can still learn to play a new music instrument. With access to different tuning modes, you can learn 4 musical instruments such as Ukulele, violin, Bass and the Guitar despite your experience level in playing other instruments.

    I downloaded this app thinking it was just a standard guitar tuner. I used it for about 6 months just as a tuner. I needed to tune a 12 string acoustic for my dad and didn't have a 12 string tuner. I did a little exploring in this app and low and behold I found it actually has a setting just for 12 strings! It cut the time of tuning from ear to doing it off the app from 10 minutes + by ear to barely any time with using the app. So as I realized I hadn't takin advantage of the app as much as I should I started exploring even more. It's a gold mine of knowledge. Not only is it a tuner (best app tuner I've used personally) but it also has a metronome , games , chords, a plethora of instruments to choose from and it's SUPER easy to navigate. I got my dad an iPhone (first iPhone he's 65) and he always complained about how it was hard to use. I showed him the GuitarTuna app and he hasn't ever had any confusion with how to use it. I think that says a lot of how instinctive the user interface is if my dad can do it :P all in all I can't recommend this app enough. I literally tell all my guitar player friends to try it and not one has said anything negative about it. I love it! I can't imagine how the developers can make it better than it already is but something tells me they will! Thanks for making an awesome app. From one musician to another, THANKS!!! Cheers! -Brad.

    Found this app to have something to use while I was waiting on a electric tuner to arrive. It works so well I canceled the order for the tuner. Great app, works perfectly and shows you just how off you are and in what direction.

    I've never personally tuned a guitar,- I've always had to have someone tune it for me when I briefly owned several guitars many years ago. At the time, I had bought them for my (now) ex husband so he was the one who always tuned them. But unfortunately, when I eventually left him- He got rid of them all instead of giving them to me since I paid for all of them. So needless to say, I've never really had the chance to learn how to play much at all. Recently, I was given another guitar from my sister, & knew I needed to learn how to tune it so I downloaded this app. I find it extremely easy to use & very helpful. Now I can tune my guitar (& maybe??) FINALLY learn how to play like I've always wanted too!! I LOVE Music & have to listen to it daily, it's my "Escape" from the world, my life, & all the problems or stresses that I might face daily. I've always wanted to learn how to play for as long as I can remember, so that I could eventually learn to play (at least some??) of the songs I love to listen to everyday or maybe even some that I grew up listening to as a kid. I'm thankful for this app so I can begin my journey towards reaching my goal/dream of learning how to play guitar & music. Thank you for making this app so very easy!! I Love It!!

    Hello everyone reading this. This is an app that made my life so much easier. I started playing guitar 4 months ago and I didn’t know anything about the guitar. So I needed someone to tune my guitar for me or at least help me (My grandpa knows how to play and tune guitar. He was pretty young when he started playing on it. But I can’t always ask him to help me). So this app was just perfect for me. It’s free. It shows you all the chords. It’s precise while tuning. And it has little mini-games as well (although if you want more games you need to pay. But it’s pretty reasonable price). So the bottom line than. If you want the basics of the basics on guitar this is the app that will provide you with anything. If you want to learn more you need to pay (But I think their Yousician app is much better if you wanna “master” the guitar). And the best thing is that the app is beautiful, it has a good tuner and all the chords you will probably ever need. (This was kinda too big of a bottom line 🤣) Thank you for reading!

    The tuner provides great visual feedback during the tuning process, and is rapidly responsive. It is a bit sensitive to environmental noise, even using a contact microphone, so works best in a relatively quiet setting: people in the room are fine, but several instruments tuning near each other is a problem. I'm guessing the iOS sound input system has a lot to do with this; perhaps the best the app can do is try to focus hard on the pitch with highest amplitude. In terms of design, the tuner is very informative. Being tied to an instrument profile allows it to give clear direction, though it may mean that you need to purchase one of the profile sets to get the data for your instrument. The only thing I miss for this function is a chromatic tuner, since it's sometimes nice to place a pitch you're hearing. The chord library is very rich, if you play a guitar. The metronome is handy as well. I don't use the games or song exchange. The topics look interesting, though. Overall, if you're willing to make the modest investment in the expanded tuning profiles and don't absolutely need the ability to display an arbitrary pitch, it's an excellent choice as a tuning and reference utility.

But, not all of the features expand for the ukulele. This is pretty disappointing. This app has been a foundation for me learning to play and I really wish they had the “learn to play chords” feature for the uke. Hopefully the developers are working on this!

    This was my go to app tuner. The new update is horrible. I'm literally trying new tuners now. The main issue for me is the interface. I was able to tune my classical so much easier on the old interface.
  • Standard only, then pay wall Aug 1, 2021

    By Shadow3c3
    Let me preface this by saying the tuner DOES work, but ONLY if you are tuning your instrument to the standard tuning. I may have shot myself in the foot because of how heavily I utilize my clip on tuners, whether I just have awful pitch memory or I’m straight lazy I can’t tell, but my tuner was lost in the move, sweet. My new town is small and doesn’t have any music stores with clip on tuners for guitars, so an app seemed like the best filler option. Gave this a go and immediately found it useless. Not many songs I play, if any, are in standard tuning. This app will only let you use the standard tuning, any other tunings and you have to pay a subscription. I understand all the features they offer but I’m not new to playing guitar, I don’t need the extra features when I have better resources for practice. Great stuff for beginners, awful for anyone at a comfortable level of playing. $5 a MONTH to tune your instrument, you better be changing tunings every half hour to make it worth your while. I highly recommend Fender Tune if you’re looking for a tuning app. The only downside is if you’re like me and own a guitar that isn’t a 6 string as they only offer 6 string tunings, but you get many more tuning options for free. Not too difficult to get a chromatic tuner and tune the 7th or 8th string yourself.
  • Not accessible!! Jul 11, 2021

    By A new soul
    The idea for this tuning app is a great one! The only thing is, it is not accessible to those of us who are blind. That’s why I don’t pay for a subscription. Not even the free version works that well!! And I have tried to talk to the developers with no results. I have done research and found out that I am not the only blind person who has tried to talk to the developers. Every time I use the app, the tuner stops working and I have to wait anywhere from a few minutes to three days before I get the screen that says allow access to microphone. Even then, it is not guaranteed I will get to the guitar tuner choice on the screen. It is frustrating and annoying I keep deleting it and starting over, still it doesn’t work!!! I use voiceover and I have an iPhone eight. Not only can I not use the tuner properly, but there are many things on the app that are not accessible!! The reason I bring up the iPhone is because my sister has an iPhone 11 and the app seems to work on her phone just fine. At least I know she can get to the tuning part of it. I don’t know about the rest, because she doesn’t use it.

    Guys, you just messed up your interface! It was easy to see without glasses, now the new interface has smaller letters which are hard to see outdoors. The visual effects are also harder to see. Have you lost it?

    Back to 1 star again. Previously lost my purchased tunings. Customer service gave me a few steps correct the restored purchases. Delete app, Reinstall, Delete cached data, Restore purchases Restart app. That worked. But now the app has auto upgraded again and all my stuff is, once again, not working. I just don't have time to do those steps every fricken time I want to tune the fricken guitar. So, that's the end of our story Yousician. Something that worked great for years needlessly altered.
  • If It Isn’t Broke, Don’t Fix It Nov 29, 2021

    By rainy.sun
    The latest update has made the app less convenient to use. The change to the tuning part of the app has made it more difficult to see if you are tuning your guitar just right. The fact that the tuning area is smaller makes it harder to see in general. The red line in the middle is gone, so now you can’t easily see where you’re trying to put the needle while tuning. The circle doesn’t change its color subtly anymore while tuning, which also makes tuning less convenient. In addition, the app has been buggy. It won’t even let me use the tuner section. Nothing happens when I play my strings or click on the letters. And in my personal opinion, the redesign is just not pleasant to look at. The smaller letters and icons are difficult to see from afar, and the new guitar pictures are a step backward compared to the old ones. In general, the app now looks and feels cheap since the latest update.

    From all of the tunner apps on the market I’m only reviewing the ones that are free. Being a real musician, and currently having zero to no money, when I type into google ‘tuner apps for free’ I’m assuming the results are going to be representative of free tuner apps.....not apps that are free until you want to tune with them.... Apparently that’s what most app development people assuming is going to work. What they don’t understand is that when I go through all of the effort of finding your app, downloading your app, installing your app, opening your app, and learning how to use your app....only to be greeted with “you must purchase this app in order to get it to work…They not only have lost a customer… They’ve made an enemy for life… I actually have a special spot in my password black book it’s labeled poison… In on this page or only the names of the developers who have wasted my time by misrepresenting their free app… This app, is a breathe of fresh air. You can actually use this app to tune your guitar for free… If you pay additional amount it’ll do a lot more cool stuff for you, but if you don’t have the money to pay for the upgrades, it still functions fantastically as a tuner … Four stars… A+ plus… Way to go guys you’re the best

  • Solid Tuner Oct 8, 2018

    By thebanjitarninja
    Lemme start with the one flaw: WAY too many ads for Yousician. I've heard great things about Yousician, don't get me wrong, but it just seems a little silly to have a whole section in the toolbar devoted to a different app. Now that my complaint is outta the way, I have to thank the devs. Like, seriously. Thank you guys. I am by no means an avid musician (I just picked up banjitar a month ago, and the only other musical knowledge I have is choral), and this lil app right here has helped so much. The tuner itself, the initial reason I got GuitarTuna, is phenomenally precise, even in my old iPhone 5c. I'd swear by it. There's also the super extensive chord library, which I will never have the expertise to fully delve into. GuitarTuna has helped this awkward, musically naïve teenage dude begin his journey down the road of banjitar enlightenment. This is one app that will always have a place very close to my heart: in my phone.

  • Great, but with a couple annoying quirks Jul 31, 2019

    By katieyouoldfool
    Before anything else, let me say this app is still 100% worth getting and I use it pretty much every day. It’s not just a tuner, it’s everything you need when practicing on your own. BUT there are a couple minor problems that got pretty annoying the more I used the app. The chord library interface is really bad. I love that they have so many chords and alternate fingerings, but really I wish there was just a button for each chord, instead of having to slowly scroll a dial through every note and variation to find the one I need. Also, I think the tuning calibration might be off. In settings, it says it’s automatically calibrated to to 440hz. But, whenever I play something already tuned properly to 440, like a digital keyboard, it reads as a 2-3 semitones too high. I’ve tried this with multiple instruments and used the app on several different devices and it happens every time. You can easily get around this by just changing the calibration to 443hz in settings, but it’s something to keep in mind, especially if you play in a group with other people. Again, I still recommend this app, flaws and all. There are just a couple things I’d love to see improved in future updates.

    It only gets 3 stars because they need to add a feature where you can play the chord practice games without a timer, Because it gets really annoying to have to keep restarting the game if you are a novice trying to learn the chords and can only get a couple before you have to stop and pickup your phone to restart the lesson. I was so stoked to see there was a feature that would teach you the chords and pick up if you were playing them correctly through the microphone and I paid for the full app only to find out how ridiculously obnoxious it is to have to restart every 45 seconds. seriously you need to add a feature where you can just play the games with no timer or with a custom timer. it's messed up the way it is now where you can only play each game for 45 seconds at a time.

    This was my go to app tuner. The new update is horrible. I'm literally trying new tuners now. The main issue for me is the interface. I was able to tune my classical so much easier on the old interface.

    Let me preface this by saying the tuner DOES work, but ONLY if you are tuning your instrument to the standard tuning. I may have shot myself in the foot because of how heavily I utilize my clip on tuners, whether I just have awful pitch memory or I’m straight lazy I can’t tell, but my tuner was lost in the move, sweet. My new town is small and doesn’t have any music stores with clip on tuners for guitars, so an app seemed like the best filler option. Gave this a go and immediately found it useless. Not many songs I play, if any, are in standard tuning. This app will only let you use the standard tuning, any other tunings and you have to pay a subscription. I understand all the features they offer but I’m not new to playing guitar, I don’t need the extra features when I have better resources for practice. Great stuff for beginners, awful for anyone at a comfortable level of playing. $5 a MONTH to tune your instrument, you better be changing tunings every half hour to make it worth your while. I highly recommend Fender Tune if you’re looking for a tuning app. The only downside is if you’re like me and own a guitar that isn’t a 6 string as they only offer 6 string tunings, but you get many more tuning options for free. Not too difficult to get a chromatic tuner and tune the 7th or 8th string yourself.
  • Not accessible!! Jul 11, 2021

    The idea for this tuning app is a great one! The only thing is, it is not accessible to those of us who are blind. That’s why I don’t pay for a subscription. Not even the free version works that well!! And I have tried to talk to the developers with no results. I have done research and found out that I am not the only blind person who has tried to talk to the developers. Every time I use the app, the tuner stops working and I have to wait anywhere from a few minutes to three days before I get the screen that says allow access to microphone. Even then, it is not guaranteed I will get to the guitar tuner choice on the screen. It is frustrating and annoying I keep deleting it and starting over, still it doesn’t work!!! I use voiceover and I have an iPhone eight. Not only can I not use the tuner properly, but there are many things on the app that are not accessible!! The reason I bring up the iPhone is because my sister has an iPhone 11 and the app seems to work on her phone just fine. At least I know she can get to the tuning part of it. I don’t know about the rest, because she doesn’t use it.

    Guys, you just messed up your interface! It was easy to see without glasses, now the new interface has smaller letters which are hard to see outdoors. The visual effects are also harder to see. Have you lost it?

    Back to 1 star again. Previously lost my purchased tunings. Customer service gave me a few steps correct the restored purchases. Delete app, Reinstall, Delete cached data, Restore purchases Restart app. That worked. But now the app has auto upgraded again and all my stuff is, once again, not working. I just don't have time to do those steps every fricken time I want to tune the fricken guitar. So, that's the end of our story Yousician. Something that worked great for years needlessly altered.
  • If It Isn’t Broke, Don’t Fix It Nov 29, 2021

    The latest update has made the app less convenient to use. The change to the tuning part of the app has made it more difficult to see if you are tuning your guitar just right. The fact that the tuning area is smaller makes it harder to see in general. The red line in the middle is gone, so now you can’t easily see where you’re trying to put the needle while tuning. The circle doesn’t change its color subtly anymore while tuning, which also makes tuning less convenient. In addition, the app has been buggy. It won’t even let me use the tuner section. Nothing happens when I play my strings or click on the letters. And in my personal opinion, the redesign is just not pleasant to look at. The smaller letters and icons are difficult to see from afar, and the new guitar pictures are a step backward compared to the old ones. In general, the app now looks and feels cheap since the latest update.
