TyroTuner is a microphone-based utility that tunes the standard six-string guitar. Select what string you want to tune, and then play the guitar string...the needle will tell you whether you need to tune up or down.
The green zone represent +/- 5 centitones, within the just-noticeable-difference.
- Funiculus pitch-detection engine
- An extremely easy-to-use interface
- Hands-free auto-string-select mode
- User-controlled volume sensitivity
iPod Touch (2nd gen): requires external microphone
iPod Touch (1st gen): INCOMPATIBLE
This app uses the iPhone's internal microphone and thus will not work on the (first generation) iPod Touch.

-Misc graphics changes
Just one tiny problem...
I love this app, don't get me wrong. As a 10+ year player I know the value of a great tuner, which this app certainly is. The only thing I'd love to change is the auto lock issue. I have to change my settings any time I want to use with multiple guitars in one tuning session. Not that it's a deal breaker type problem, to the contrary, this app will be my number one for the life of my iPhone. But if the mighty, benevolent, awesome developers could see in their hearts to change this in an update, I know they would be granted the richest lives imaginable!! I also want to say a thousand thanks for making yet another one of the over 100 apps that I didn't have to pay for. Thank you guys sincerely.
thought I'd try a free tuner before looking at the paid apps. Checking this out without looking at the instructions, I did start to think whether there was more to it, having fiddled around, then it clicked, pretty much chose whether electric guitar or acoustic (default is electric), press on the acoustic and test tune and get it in the region of the green in the bar. simple and effective, but as stated, possibly a little flat, but sure anyone knowing what they are doing can tweak it so slightly by ear. used on ipod touch 2g with the ipod earphone with mic. (still baffled why people post positive comments and leave 1 star on apps)
Free, and it works?!
I enjoy playing my acoustic but it's been a awhile. I unpacked it about twenty mins ago and found it grossly out of tune. Found TyroTuner and figured it's free, if it doesn't work I'll just delete it. Just downloaded it and tuned my guitar in about 1 min. Works great! The automatic tuning feature works well, you can also simply pick a string(and therefore a particular note) if you're interesting in down tuning or your guitar is terribly off tune like mine was. Simple, clean, and works with my 1st gen iPhone! You won't be disappointed with this app!
