eTuner app review: ensure you sound great 2021



No matter how hard you practice, if your instrument isn't in tune, you're not going to sound your best. The eTuner instrument tuning app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone has been created to help musicians tune a variety of string, brass, and wind instruments.

The tuner app for iPhone is described as an interactive chromatic tuning tool and it uses your device's fine display and audio to show and determine the instrument's pitch as you play it or even sing a specific note. This means it can also be used by singers who are working on intonation and scales.

For more details on this good iPhone instrument tuner app, check out our eTuner app review below. 



Always Be In Tune

Any musician is well aware of how important it is to be in tune and that's where the eTuner app is meant to help. Use it with a number of string, brass, and wind instruments as well as when working on your singing (intonation and scales).

The way the app works is that it will display the name of the note that is nearest to the pitch that is being detected. As you play/sing it displays the note.

You will also be able to see if the pitch is OK, Low, or High in regards to the note name that has shown up on the screen. The display is quite large and this is meant to make it easy to read even with just a quick glance.

A Small Selection of Features

The eTuner app has obviously taken the "less is more approach" but unfortunately it feels noticeably lacking. There are very little features and tools so if you're looking for any of those added bonuses this isn't the app for you.

The few features offered include the fact supports all 12 pitches in each octave. You can also choose your display style as some may be easier for you to read than others. It is the color scheme and font size that changes.

You can adjust the calibration, there is support for transposed instruments, and moving through the app is quite easy.
