So what makes the TonalEnergy the best selling music practice app?

• It’s easy to use. Options like the Target Tuner or Pitch Tracker are on all the main pages. TonalEnergy helps users create rewarding and attainable goals during a rehearsal or when working alone. Colorful analysis data pages and audio/video recording features enhance the experience of practice.

• The metronome is cutting edge. It offers unmatched flexibility in sound choices, tempo settings, meters, subdivision patterns and visual displays. Voice count-ins, the ability to create and edit preset groups and Ableton link for syncing multiple devices make this a superior tool for performers.

Listening skills can be developed through the use of the eight-octave keyboard, chromatic wheel and tone generator. There are no other sounds like these.

Feature updates and bug-fixes and from v1.5.2 included:

- Added auto-transpose feature back in for sound selection
- Improved bluetooth speaker output support

- Added option to make compressed audio (AAC) files when exporting audio
- Playing audio files keeps app alive in the background (like the metronome)
- Added duration indicator when recording

Apple Watch app changes:
- Reordered watch pages, to focus on most likely used features (metronome)
- Added meter and subdiv adjusting feature to Watch app

This is the best tuner I've ever used


Great app, could use appearance update  FLYINpingwin  5 star

The app should change its icon, it seems quite out dated for current OS. Other than that it’s a great app and works for a lot of things .

Great app  charlie 123456789123  5 star

All in all a great app totally worth the money!

Teddy Dunn

This App Has No Limits  Teddy Dunn  5 star

This app is unbelievably detailed and well-designed. It's so versatile that it can hardly be considered just a tuner app. It contains a wide variety of temperaments, and it will allow you to create some of your own. It contains just about (if not) every time signature you'll ever come across. The metronome also allows you to choose which beats are accented and which beats you'd like to take out. The app also allows you to analyze the overtones of a sound, record sounds, generate tones using sine/saw/square waves or the timbre of different musical instruments, and SO much more. I definitely think this app is a luxury that many musicians ought to know about.

Capt Pollution

Great app for beginners and pros!  Capt Pollution  5 star

I have been using the TE Tuner for a few years now and it is the best tuner I own. From being able to tune A to any frequency, to having click tracks with any beat syncopation and timing, to offering multiple digital instrument sounds and my favorite the spectrum graph that can be used to tune an audio environment, the TE Tuner has it all!! Constantly updated and has never crashed. Great app!


Great App  RJC421  5 star

Versatile and effective tool for all pitch and sound related diagnostics.

Parents Please Read This!

Helpful in band and at home!  Parents Please Read This!  5 star

TE tuner is a very helpful tuner that provides many features such as a tuner, metronome and many more. I get so exited about this app, because it has everything a musician could ask for- for free! I would definitely suggest this app for any and all musicians.


Worth the money  Oreolover29  5 star

I am a freshman, and I play flute in my schools marching band. I practice 24/7 and this app has helped so much! You get many functions, more than just a metronome and tuner! I would recommend for anyone who practices often.

As a barbershopper, this app makes it possible to focus on keeping tonal center with visual feedback that's easy to understand. Add the the metronome and its the perfect practice aid for any style of music or instrument.

Carter joe 1210

Awesome!!  Carter joe 1210  5 star

Great for band class great for recording concerts!!


Great! One strange issue though.  mattnmusic  4 star

App is excellent!!!! Only thing is, since about the end of May, the TE Tuner randomly turns on the mic when the app is COMPLETELY CLOSED (It's not even open in the background). A red bar comes up on the top of the screen that says that TE Tuner is using the mic. It shows up for about 3 seconds and then turns off. This has happened at least three or four times in the two weeks week. I've double checked to be sure it's not running in background. I haven't even used the tuner in two weeks! So one star off for that. Other wise great!


Tuner  Oldsmojo  2 star

Don't even think for a second that this tuner will work with your watch. It doesn't exist and none of these companies are honest about that They are ruining the reputation of this watch with their stupid deceitful apps!

Alto MI

Best App  Alto MI  5 star

Really works well. I use it daily. It is even more useful now that I have a cord to allow use in band.


Great app  Dr.B.  5 star

Best I've found


Lots of bells and whistles  BerioSequenza  5 star

So many features I have yet to use them all. Great for simple tuner and metronome practicing.

Jeremy Fischier

👍  Jeremy Fischier  5 star

Is the best. This tuner helped me realize that my Bluetooth speaker has a latency issue causing all my audio to be a couple cents flat... Interesting.

Paul Lastnamé

The best practice tool for iOS that I'm aware of.  Paul Lastnamé  5 star

It does literally everything.
