Cleartune is a chromatic instrument tuner and pitch pipe that allows you to quickly and accurately tune your instrument using the built-in mic in your iPhone or using an external mic on your 2nd or 3rd generation iPod Touch.
Cleartune features a unique "note wheel" interface allowing you to quickly find your pitch, paired with a highly responsive fine-tuning meter for the perfect tune.
With support for custom temperaments, transposition, notations such as solfège, adjustable calibration and more, Cleartune packs more power than most pro tuners, yet is simple enough for everyone to use.
Cleartune can tune acoustic or electric guitar, bass, bowed strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, tympani, tablas and any other instrument that can sustain a tone.
Most electronic tuners cannot properly tune a violin. With a built in temperament for violin family instruments, Cleartune will have the 5ths singing perfectly.

Still the Best
By Peso Pete
I got this tuner app maybe seven years ago and it is still the app I go to when I want to tune my guitar. No bells and whistles and the interface is downright retro but it does exactly what I need it to do every time I need to tune my guitar.
Please update so it continues to work in new iOS versions.
This has been my tuner of choice for years now, but it is going to need an update to run in future versions of iOS. A few weeks ago I sent an email to the developer asking if it was going to be updated, and haven't heard back. I'm looking for another tuner now, in case this one doesn't get updated.
I have an iPhone 6S and when I open the app I get a message indicating that the app will slow down the phone due to lack of updates.
Once good, but the developers already abandoned it. :-(
Is this being maintained?
I like this app and continue to use it but I've been getting notifications that it needs to be updated, that more recent versions of iOS won't support it. Is this app being maintained?
I play the cello, and this tuning app helps a lot. It works. I recommend this app.
Needs 64 bit support
Please update this app! I've used it since my first iPhone!
Update your app please
I've been using Cleartune since my iPad 3 it's been on every single one of my Apple devices, but has become clear that the developers have moved on or are uninterested in updating this app. Please update this app for newer operating systems so it won't just stop working. It's been a real pleasure using Cleartune and I hope to continue doing so for a long time.
NO UPDATE SINCE 2012

This was my favorite tuning app, but you need to update Xcode, re-compile this app, and release an update! 5 years? Five? Years?! 😐 C'mon, guys!
Update long over due
By Weather diver
This is a great tuning app. I used to LOVE it. Now, not so much! The app has not been upgraded to the latest ios version. (10.x) or anything else in over 4 years.. This has made the app crash and slow down my phone and ipad. Please update and refresh this app soon!

Needs an update, otherwise may not work with next OS. Love this app. Keep it alive, please!
