This is a great app for Android cell phones. Unfortunately, I purchased this for my new kindle Fire and it did not work no matter how much I tweaked the settings.

This app works great on my droid incredible, and I got it for free a couple years ago. I just bought it for my Kindle Fire HD, and it doesn't work at all. Waste of money.

Used the free version for a year. It is just so useful, I figured I'd help the cause. Even nicer w/ out the ads! Great tuner, and this is from a guitar playing, public school band teacher.

I purchased this app to help with sound checks on the venue pianos that my band leader plays. Most of the time we are at the mercy of whichever instrument the venue happens to own. Of course we do not tune pianos on the spot, but it helps to know what we are dealing with.

To verify that this app is reasonably accurate I tested this with a guitar and bass and compared the results to those from a SpeedPro Chromatic Clip On Guitar Tuner for Acoustic, Bass or Electric Guitar, Black, with 3 Year Guarantee, Battery Included and the results were identical. Based on those tests we were confident that results from a piano were in the ballpark, and this also perfectly identified notes from my Roland RD-300NX as well as a Yang Chang grand piano.

The two devices on which I have tested it were Samsung Note 3 running Android 4.3 and a Samsung Tab 3 10.1 running Android 4.2.2. I experienced no issues or problems on those platforms.

This is a bargain when you consider the accuracy this app provides compared to a dedicated hardware tuner, and the convenience of always having a tuner available.

I'm completely spoiled by this tuner. I now have it on my smart phone and my Kindle Fire tablet. As a harpist, I tune at least 46 strings daily. Love, love, love it!!

My expensive guitar tuner broke and this was a great replacement. Very easy to use and I love that I have it on my phone. I highly recommend this app.

Good quality, stand-alone tuners used to cost $50 or more. Now you can have one on your phone, that's nearly as good. It's certainly good enough to tune my bass and electric guitars. I love smart phones:-)
