  • Best tuner app for iPad

    By BallisticMystic
    Simple, easy to use and extremely accurate. Customer service is very responsive :)
  • Best tuner on the App Store

    By cfanaic
    This is an incredible tuner. I love my Stomp Classic, and this app brings the Peterson accuracy to my phone. It is one of my most used apps. It's absolutely worth the money, even if it wasn't the only good chromatic tuner on the App Store. I can't imagine anything better.
  • World Class

    By Kokomo65
    Pretty much as good as it gets when it comes to iOS tuners. You will not be disappointed.
  • Wow! Real Deal!

    By Fgyjgfdhccfv
    There are other "strobe tuners" in the App Store but none with the accuracy of this. Great purchase, you won't regret it.
  • Used to be good. Not any more

    By KahBill
    I don't know what happened. Used to be good but after the last update doesn't even come close. My cheap on clip on tunes my guitar better! Wrong notes in display shows sharp or flat sometimes when the note is right on and no other notes are ringing.
  • The best tuner app

    By Jim-ph
    Used to be the best. Pretty useless with my iphone 6s now. Hears total BS. Incorrect notes. Incorrect pitch.
  • Very accurate but wrong note labels

    By Corkyjon
    I also have a stroboscopic pedal which I've retired since I got this app. You always have your iPhone handy. Even when the moving bars are accurate the wrong note can show in the display, even when all other strings are muted. This usually happens on low E and I wonder if the phone's mic is not sensitive to low frequencies and a harmonic is being heard. Only other complaint also relates to low sensitivity of iPhone mic, in that electric guitars may not be loud enough to trigger the app unless played through an amplifier. Peterson sell an external mic for this but I figure if I have to carry a mic I might as well bring my pedal. All in all I use this app extensively.
  • Works as advertised

    By Stewgotts
    I used to own a Peterson Virtual Strobe Tuner. This app is even better! I use it to setup the intonation on my electric guitars. Plus, I bought the sweetener pack for guitar. Very happy!
