After last IOS update to iPhone 6, microphone must be switched back on in for this app in Settings or tuner will not work. Go figure.

Original Post:
Flimsy version of Planet Waves Guitar Tools which I used for years. Things from PWGT that would make this a 5 star app:
Give an option to or just make a dark background especially on the tuner. The strobe is much harder to see in current app.
Wood style fretboard was also better for viewing.
As other reviews note, chord finder shows "no chord" for many basic and complex grips, and any chord when you X out an open string. Once a fret marker is placed, that string can not be changed back to open. Hope some of function and style issues are soon resolved. PWGT was an awesome little app; this one, not so much yet.

Useful app with one MAJOR flaw!

For some reason, even in the default setting, the pitch of chords and scales are played 1 whole step higher than the selected tonal center. This needs to be fixed. Other than that, it's a cool app.

Free but...

Tuner doesn't go lower than A1, impossible to tune the E string on my bass :(

Other than that I love the strobe tuner.

Can you please fix it?
