One of the many questions I’ve been getting is what is the Best Guitar Tuner App?
First, lets talk about Guitar Tuner Apps. To me they are an excellent alternative to an actual guitar tuner, however; I wouldn’t completely substitute an app for a tool that is built for specifically making sure your guitar is in tune. Having your guitar in tune is the most important aspect of playing the guitar, especially as a beginner. Call me old fashioned, but I always find my guitar isn’t fully in tune after using a tuning app, however; if I was a beginner they would be nice to have in a pinch. It’s not always practical to have your tuner with you (or batteries for your tuner) but we always have our phones with us. I strongly suggest that you learn how to tune your guitar by ear, but if you dont have that ability yet, an app will you get by.
What is the best guitar tuner app?
For IOS(Apple) I suggest Guitar Tuna.
Guitar Tuna is an excellent app, and most important it is free. It gets the job done and is fairly reliable.
For Android (Google) I suggest Guitar Tuner Free also by Guitar Tuna
Again, very similar to their Apple app, they obviously have perfected the automatic tuner via phones, and they have proven it.
Here is a video of Guitar Tuna in action:
Best Guitar Tuner App Mini Games
An often overlooked part of apps with a function is the ability to also incorporate a “fun” aspect to it. Guitar Tuna does this as both apps include a mini game and tuning for the following: Metronome, Bass, Banjo, 12 String and 7 String Guitars, Balalaika and Mandolin.
