Featured by Apple as "New and Noteworthy" on the main App Store landing page. Pitch Pipe+ is a tuner application for the playback of reference pitches, perfect for singing and tuning instruments.
It consists of three views:
Chromatic - Playback of all pitches from 6 octaves. Choose between the note sustaining indefinitely or for 3 seconds. Useful for choirs and a-capella singers as reference for starting note.
Pitch Pipe - This one is for singers used to using chromatic pitch pipes. Sounds are sampled from actual pitch pipes. Choose between C-C and F-F pipes. Tap a currently playing note to kill it immediately.
Guitar - Dedicated guitar tuner lets you tune to guitar samples in addition to the sine wave tone. Auto advance moves down the strings so you don't have to keep reaching for the phone. The following tunings are available: Standard, Dropped D, DADGAD, Open D, Open G, Open A.
The last visited view is shown whenever you relaunch the app so you have instant access to your preferred view.
Calibrate tuning from A = 414 to 466 Hz.
Retina Displays supported.

Handy Keyboard Option
A very handy little app-- I use it to get my starting note or check a note all the time. The keyboard option is really handy-- you can pick any octave and know which one you're on. Also, you can choose how long to have a note last or just cut it off with the kill-switch.
This app is fantastic when it works. Unfortunately that's only about 40% of the time. If I leave it open in the background and go back to it after using another app, the sound stops working. It looks like it's playing a note but no sound comes out. And no, it's not because my volume it turned down. I have to quit the app and start it again to make it work. Too bad because I love all the features it comes with.
Thrilled with this app! Great for singers
I am thrilled with this app! I spent 99 cents, and automatically received the app for both my iPhone and iPad. The iPad app with iPad resolution.
Simple and easy to use. Has scales in both C and F, and also a Christmas theme. Also, has the notes, as seen on a piano, with octaves easy to span.
Am a singer learning Solfège. Highly recommend.
