Ratings and Reviews
I downloaded the pay for app based upon an online referral from a site about setting up DIY wind chimes. I've used other tuning apps and found this to be the most helpful. It is smart in distinguishing background noise (much of the work was done in my garage on a not so busy street) from tuning sounds and was able to still give consistent readings. I found the dial along with the frequency reading was very helpful. I still rate this 5 stars despite having some trouble distinguishing the higher pitches. Dead on consistency, graphics, useful info, and ease of use are my biggest factors for giving a 5. 😊
Simple and effective!
This app has a super minimalist interface, offering both tuning and tone generation. It works and looks great while doing it!
The free version doesn't have ads, and the pro version (which adds features like changing pitch, changing the visualization, or note names) can be unlocked with either the $5 in app purchase or a simple sharing on social media.
I've tried other apps on the app store, but this one takes the cake. It has all the features with a low price tag to boot!
I've only experienced two great tuning apps: Tonal Energy and InsTuner. Only downfall of Tonal Energy is the fact you have to pay around 4 dollars for it. InsTuner is free and it even works as well as TE. I know that there is a paid version of this, but honestly you don't need it. The free version is pretty solid and I love how there are no annoying ads. Most free tuners found in the App Store are subpar in my opinion because their app produced aren't as well. Would give it 5 stars, but it's occasionally slow when it tries to pick up different pitches that are released quickly.
