Ridiculous. Also I’m salty.
This ridiculous, for lack of a clean word to use that truly shows how ticked I am, app refused to let me bypass their intro without subscribing to their premium “trial”. The “trial” automatically begins drawing money after it is over and is darn (again, lack of a word) near impossible to turn off. How do I know? My second plan after closing out the app and clicking back on it again (The intro only appeared again) was to sign up for their subscription and immediately cancel. The instructions say you can close it out through iTunes. Okay, 1. iTunes is an incredibly hard platform to manage, as anyone without a computer science degree who has spent five minutes trying to work the thing out will agree with. and 2. This is an APP. iTunes is for music! That’s why it had “Tunes” in the name! And lastly, I DON’T HAVE ANY MONEY TO PUT ON MY CARD TO EVEN SIGN UP FOR THE THING! I’M DOWNLOADING A FREE GUITAR TUNER APP, DO YOU THINK IM ROLLING IN DOUGH HERE? ALSO, THE PREMIUM FEATURE IS $8.00? Seriously, this app is ridiculous. Maybe if they got rid of this marketing scam at the beginning of the app I would be able to actually see the rest of it, including the actual tuner portion. DON’T BUY UNTIL THIS SCAM IS OVER.
Does exactly what it says on the tin
It's a guitar (and ukulele) tuner. Whether you need a reference tone, a chromatic tuner, or to tune to a standard or common tuning for the instrument, this app gets it done. Nice UI, very intuitive. The only reason I'm giving it four stars rather than five is that if it could also handle bass, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki and other stringed instruments in the same way as it handles guitar and uke - or if it allowed me to create a custom tuning of my own in order to mock up the mandolin or banjo - it would fit my needs perfectly. UPDATE: since my initial review, 12-string guitar and 4- and 5-string bass have been added, and this app has absolutely become my go-to for tuning, and I’m bumping it up to five stars for that. If the mandolin and banjo could be next, it would be absolutely perfect.
Perfect simple tuner
I downloaded this app probably close to a year ago and didn’t like it as much then. The ads were very annoying and I found it difficult to figure out how to set up the tuning for either other instruments or keys. I used the app again today after months of not and I’m very glad I kept it around. All I had to do was open it and start plucking my strings. It lets you know when your string is in tune and prompts you to move on to the next one until you are finished. It’s simple, easy to interact with, and most importantly, free. It’s a perfect tool for those of us who carry their phone more often than a tuner. (P.S., the app now offers tunings in different keys and for different instruments including ukulele, bass, and 12 stringed guitars)
If I could give you less then a star I would, this app hasn’t changed they make you click premium to use the app and then you have to go through the whole mess of unsubscribing to them and they should just have the option in the app to cancel it and its completely ridiculous. I won’t be using this app till one of you people get your act together and stop scamming people. Also ! They make you pay for things and they don’t tell you it cost anything you’ll just get a thing from Apple saying you didn’t pay them yet ... well excuse me I thought the app was free but I guess you can’t use anything in the app without paying absolutely ridiculous. Don’t buy the app because it’s free it ends up costing more then just buying one of the other apps that cost something. Sorry guys but you screwed up on this one ...
I got tricked.
I downloaded this app one night. Figured it’s free so whatever, I don’t play guitar at all but I have one and wanted to mess around with it. I signed up for what I thought was a weekly trial, I knew I would just unsubscribe soon anyways. I thought I did just that and never thought about it again. Until today, nearly 7 months later. I was just checking my iTunes payment history, even though I never purchase apps or do in app purchases. And what is this? I HAVE BEEN GETTING CHARGED WEEKLY FOR 7 MONTHS. Now I take responsibility for not watching my bank account closer or my iTunes charges closer, but seriously, make this more user friendly, if I download a free app, make it free. Make it clear what I’m getting or not getting. Make it clear if I’m paying, or not paying. Like this app hasn’t even been on my phone for seven months.
A stupid trick...
When we read “GET”, we think it’s free. Many tuner apps are free. Then, when have downloaded it we discover that what we “GET” is a subscription not free. Of course the subscription is mention in the Apple store, but we are not told that without it we can’t either try it. What we are asked to try is the subscription. Sorry, that was a trick I didn’t like. I deleted your app and will never know why you say it’s the best. I have bought many tuners, apps and not apps that you put on your guitar or in front of it etc. It was always very simple and clear. Other apps let you choose between free light version with tons of apps and a paying full version without adds. When we like the free app, we always buy the full version. That subscription system looks like more of a money trap. Good luck!
It tricks you into signing up for a monthly payment (for a *tuner*!) when you think you are getting a free version. It looks like two different buttons but it’s not. It’s only free for a week. Then it bills iTunes. I only figured it out because I paid extra attention and was suspicious. It’s kind of a pain to cancel the iTunes subscription, you have to google it. Of course, that’s Apple’s fault. (The most non-obvious thing is clicking ON your actual Apple ID in Settings.) Best part is they fill the screen that comes up when you finally find the Mange Subscriptions window with redundant choices in order to push the cancel button below the fold and hide it. It’s down there. If this is how this company makes money, stay far away.
BS pricing change
The most recent update included “under the hood improvements” but really meant “an attempt to take more money.” When I initially downloaded the app, everything on it was free. Then after a while they changed it to a one time purchase to unlock all tunings and instruments. I paid that one time fee, and it worked amazingly. Now I don’t even know how well it works, as it is trying to force me to pay $7.99 a week just to use it for basic tunings! I uninstalled it immediately. I personally expect the team behind this train wreck to up the price even more in the coming months. Not worth the time or money.
I got this app after trying three others to tune my ukulele, and all of them didn’t help at all. They wanted to guess the string I was playing, so I wasn’t able to find the perfect note. This app had an option to turn off the auto so I was able to tune each string perfectly. When I got done, which didn’t take long at all, it sounded great!
Great, with different tunings too!
This tuner app is amazing because it has so many different tunings already programmed. It is very easy to set up your guitar when you’re trying to change to a different tuning. I also love that it gives the Hz both where you are and where you need to be. You can make fine adjustments accordingly and not overshoot your desired string pitch.
I have been using the app for about 6 months. Then one day I go to use it and it will not let me use it without signing up for a trial period and then a $7.99 monthly fee. I can appreciate that these people would like to make money. But I would rather they just say outright that they are going to start charging and I can either start paying or stop using it. Unethical business practices. I am speaking with iTunes on how to delete this app as it is still listed under my subscriptions on my phone. There are too many other tuner apps. Be careful.
I had this app for about a year, and have really enjoyed using it to keep my uke, guitar, and harp in tip-top shape...until now. All of a sudden, it makes me subscribe to continue using it for nearly $8 per week. Not month, but week. And shame on iTunes for not making that clear to future users—they make it seem like it’s still free, and not a pricey weekly subscription. I understand that the companies and developers that create these apps need to get some financial reimbursement for the services they provide, but to pull the wool over the users eyes like this is ridiculous.
The interface is not immediately helpful. But the app is so well-designed that it only took me about 30 seconds to figure out how to tune my ukulele. I’m sure it’s going to come in very handy in the future. Keep in mind that you will have to tune your guitar in a relatively quiet environment. But it appears to be very accurate.
Weekly Subscription?? Way overpriced!!
I have had this app for quite some time and it’s been great. I open it today and it now wants $7.99 a week for a subscription!! Why would I pay that every week when I could just go buy a tuner for $20. That’s a ridiculous price when there are plenty of other tuner apps out there. Do the math at 52 weeks a year and that’s over $400!!! Why would anyone pay that?? I can buy an amp with a built in tuner for that price and keep it for years. Good app when it was free, but not paying $400 a year for a tuner.
Not really free, do not download!
I downloaded this app about a week ago with a two week free trial. While the app itself is great, the price is not justified. They want to charge you a weekly fee to use the app of over $7!!! What a rip-off. I made the mistake of accepting the terms for the two week trial, and now I am struggling to figure out how to cancel my subscription before I am charged. My advice--avoid the hassle all together and purchase a tuner for $15 at the store. You will get more for your money and save yourself the hassle.
