App Reviews

  • Needs work. Audio problems.

    By Iser27391
    On the first few uses it seemed great. Chord finder and scales were neat. Felt kinda clunky but worked. I actually really liked the metronome and trainer included. However once my phone rebooted, I got no more sounds. On the metronome and the chord dictionary. No audio. I rebooted, closed, reopened, reinstalled and still sounds don't work. Disappointing because it's otherwise pretty useful.
  • App keeps trying to phish me.

    Why is it still available?
  • Tuner is off

    By vvvSeVeNvvv
    Just discovered last night that the tuner tunes my guitar slightly flat, although the app shows that it’s in tune.
  • Cadd9 error.

    By Mmetalmaniac
    In the chords section of the app I was looking that in the 3 fret it shows a Csus2 instead of a Cadd9. I’ve found this app very useful for years but just this one thing is bugging me right now.
  • Tuner does not work in iOS 11....

    Tried to use it today. All strings are 451hz, 1 semitone higher. FIX THIS SOON!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Free but...

    By Adrien456123
    Tuner doesn't go lower than A1, impossible to tune the E string on my bass :( Other than that I love the strobe tuner. Can you please fix it?
  • Useful app with one MAJOR flaw!

    By JMRmusic
    For some reason, even in the default setting, the pitch of chords and scales are played 1 whole step higher than the selected tonal center. This needs to be fixed. Other than that, it's a cool app.

    Update: After last IOS update to iPhone 6, microphone must be switched back on in for this app in Settings or tuner will not work. Go figure. Original Post: Flimsy version of Planet Waves Guitar Tools which I used for years. Things from PWGT that would make this a 5 star app: Give an option to or just make a dark background especially on the tuner. The strobe is much harder to see in current app. Wood style fretboard was also better for viewing. As other reviews note, chord finder shows "no chord" for many basic and complex grips, and any chord when you X out an open string. Once a fret marker is placed, that string can not be changed back to open. Hope some of function and style issues are soon resolved. PWGT was an awesome little app; this one, not so much yet.
  • Crashes sometimes

    By Wschart
    I have been a happy user of the ancestral Guitar Tools for several years, but I recently purchased a new iPod Touch and had to update to this. Sometimes it works fine and other times it crashes almost immediately. The icon starts to expand out to the splash screen and then boom! It crashes. Sometimes trying to open it several times will get it to work, sometimes rebooting the iPad will fix it and sometimes I'm just out of luck. And there is no apparent rhyme or reason. Maybe the recent iOS upgrade will help. Time will tell.
