What's New in Version 2.5.2
Stop the spamming!
When I bought this app, I paid over 10 bucks for it. That was fine -- it was a good app. However, I've recently been getting spammed so badly by the app whenever I try and use it, that when their forced upsell was presented to me (as others have noted, it's almost impossible to find the close X on these things now) I bought it just so I could get to the main app to tune my guitar for a gig. Of course, Apple compounded that problem because the upsell was supposed to be 1.99, but Apple waited so long to charge me, I got charged 2.99 -- for something I just bought only to stop the spamming.
There really should be a way to report this kind of agressive inap purchase attack because this isn't the only app that does it -- but it is one of, if not the, worst.
I also noticed that there doesn't seem to be a customer email contact for these guys, so I will NOT be buying anything else of theirs.
I agree with others. Paid $10 for this app years ago for a few basic functions. Works great in that regard and those basic features have not been really upgraded (or need to be). With major app updates there has been features added as in-app purchases. I'm fine with that -- I still get what I originally paid for. Recently however, the app spashes ridiculous full screen adds to upsell its add-ons. Very annoying when you just want to get to your tuner or metronome quickly. All the extra locked features have added to the bloat making the app slower to launch. Going to delete and switch to another tuner. What shortsighted business practices.
Excellent app, bad company
Excellent tuner functionality as well as a really useful reference for scales and chords.
However, it sends you super annoying messages and does not give you a (easily visible) way to turn them off within the app, so you’re forced to uninstall it and then reinstall it when you want to use it.
So, for example, if you’re headed off to drive across the state to bury your mother, you can expect cheery notifications like “Don’t forget to practice your guitar this weekend.” Why any company would assume that I want or need notifications like that is utterly beyond me, and why a company is willing to damage all of its goodwill with its otherwise happy customers is simply astounding.
