As a life-long musician I’m pretty confident about what I want from apps like this, so I’m very pleased to see that the developer has paid a decent amount of attention to what users are likely to require from this kind of utility.

The degree of accuracy offered in this app makes it perfect for performing musicians, while its relatively low price makes it more than affordable for all you bedroom guitarists out there as well, so it definitely receives a strong recommendation from me.
