The essential tool for all musicians playing traditional Irish, Scots, Welsh and Breton music!
Ever sat in a trad session and wondered what was the name of that great tune someone just played? Well now you can search a database of over 22,000 tunes from your iPhone/iPod BY PLAYING!
Just hold your device up to a melody instrument such as the tin-whistle, flute, concertina, uilleann pipes, accordion or banjo, hit record and the melody will be extracted and submitted to the tunepal.org search engine for matching.
Matching tunes are downloaded to your device, where you can view and edit the notation or the stave, email the tune, post it to facebook or play it back using the high quality playback engine based on ABC2MIDI and FMOD.

What a pal !
Smart app, intuitive design. Wants to crash on uploading if "glass of beer" but other 200 or so tunes I found and uploaded without a hitch! Would like it if there was an alphabetical option to organize the order of the tunes but other than that it is perfect! Best $6 I ever spent! Thanks to the team who put this together for the love of the tunes!! Best, Jack
This is a great app, but a lot of times it returns tunes that are obviously not right, or even in the same time signature. I wish there was a way to narrow search results on the "record" page, like a little button for time signature or tune type or key, and it would only return results in those parameters.
Why no Family Sharing?
Great app, use it often, but why no family sharing? I have to buy it for each of my Irish musician kids. Five stars minus the two extra times I have to pay for it.
