Thread: Best Tuning App for iPhone

  1. #1

    Default Best Tuning App for iPhone

    Good morning!

    I am not sure why, but I never put a tuning app on my phone. Just thinking I probably should. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    If its free yes.

    If its paid for no.

    If you do then a comparative test of the apps accuracy would be a good idea

    I really like Tunable. It is designed for to help players with intonation, so it is a bit of overkill for a 4 stringed, plucked instrument, but it’s really nice. I think I paid more than the current $4 price many years ago, it’s worth well more than that to me as I also play the bagpipes.

    Kala has a decent tuning app for iPhone or Android, and it is free. You don't really need more than that--and it's pointless at a ukulele gathering--but on your own, it is nice to always have a tuner with you.

    "Uke Tuner", for me. Simple interface, all the usual tunings, create your own custom tunings (Bb in the attached pic), corresponding chord charts, metronome.

    Cleartune works great.

    While we are at it, Tempo is a great metronome app

    As tuners go, for all instruments, Cleartune has been around a LONG time, and was even abandoned for a while, but the developer came back with a new version...making a lot of people happy. A lot of people like Cleartune because of its retro look.

    That said, Peterson also has an app...iStroboSoft...which a lot of band directors say is better than the actual Peterson tuners...

    And the tuner that is universally loved by band directors is Tonal Energy Tuner.

    These are all not-ukulele specific, but would of course, work with ukulele.

    if You are in a group, you can usually borrow a clip on tuner.

    OTOH, when I’m alone, in a shop, testing a Ukulele, I trust my ear to get close to the third string being close...
    And then I tune the instrument to itself.
    Playing by oneself, all that matters is all 4 strings being ‘in tune’ with each other

    I know other music teachers who use Tonal Energy, which I tried briefly, but hated the interface and found a little gimmicky. (It may be that I prefer a more straight ahead design) I know some that like iStrobosoft, which I have been interested in trying, although it is a little pricey.

    Any of the works well and have plenty of fans.
