Customer Reviews

Excellent for a beginner.

I was looking for a tuner app and found this instead. It will play the notes of the strings for you, but it isn't a chromatic tuner. I quickly got over my disappointment, though, when I found that it absolutely will give me the easiest fingering for any chord with a simple spin of a wheel, and it will play it for me so I know I am getting it right. It has more complex fingerings for when I get better (someday)! It is a great tool! I have learned so much in a short time.

So Good... and Free!

I see this app hasn't been updated since 2012 -- yet it is still the best app I have found for learning mandolin chords. The iOS warned me when I started it this time that it needs to be updated or it will not work with future versions of iOS. Very sad! I would gladly pay for this app if it were going to be maintained. I would probably ask for a few more features and updated interface. But it works and works well.

Awesome app

This app is freaking amazing. For the couple of people that had said they had issues with it showing it left handed, that was kind of annoying to me to start. What I did was just flip my iPad and turn auto screen rotation off and propped it up on my feet, that way I could just be looking at it without having to turn my head and it showed it right handed.
