Whether you are a guitarist, bassist, or trumpeter, Tuner Lite by plusadd is a wonderfully simple tuning app that will enable you to tune up your instrument in no time at all. Featuring a chromatic tuner as well as integrated Pitch Pipe, you can rest assured that you’ll be playing in key every single time with this instrument tuner app.
Guitar Tuner Lite is a chromatic instrument tuner and pitch pipe that allows you to quickly and accurately tune your instrument using the built-in mic in your iPhone or iPad. This guitar tuner app can tune acoustic or electric guitar, bass, bowed strings, woodwinds, brass, piano, tympani, and any other instrument that can sustain a tone.
This is a simple app with an even simpler purpose, but the developer has done a great job of making it easy to use and effective at providing a spot-on, pitch perfect reading without fail.

This app features an intricate and highly detailed tuner display with a 50-cent range, and you can also fine tune by using the Calibrate function to nudge the pitch up and down until you find exactly the note you’re looking for.
This tuning app has an LED display easy-to-understand high and low sound. Full version of this guitar tuner app supports a custom temperaments, transposition, notations such as solfège, adjustable calibration and more.
If you tap the tuning fork icon on the left, you can play your instrument into your iPhone’s built-in microphone and it will detect the note and display it on the tuner accordingly.
As well as displaying the note and finely tuned frequency, there are two red lights beneath the main display that will light up depending on if the note you’re playing is sharp of flat. This is definitely a worthwhile addition as it will help you to get your instrument perfectly tuned up far more easily.
If you’re more of the inclination that you’d like to tune your instrument in a slightly different way, you can tap the speaker icon on the right of the interface to active the Pitch Pipe function. This will simply play a tone which you can adjust by using the plus and minus buttons under where it says “CALIB.”
There appear to be a number of options which are grayed out in the Setting menu, as these are unavailable in the free version. If you upgrade, you’ll benefit from being able to adjust the Music Notation language, Transposition, Temperament, and more.
