Learning the guitar can be exciting and fun. The GuitarTuna app lets you train your musical ear by providing professional accuracy and helping you learn tunings and your instrument. You can use the GuitarTuna for an acoustic or electric guitar, ukulele, bass and any other 12-string instrument. Here is a review of the app, its functionality, and usability.

Interface 4/5

The most outstanding aspect of the app is the interface that is simple and easy to comprehend and use. The interface supports user access to the various tools and features of the app. With just one tap on the screen, you get to try out the integrated metronome. The chords library is also available from the interface, and it has lots of different diagrams to assist you in learning new chords. The interface is very appealing.

Features 5/5

  • Manual and Automatic Selection of Tunings;

With the manual and automatic choices, you can personalize the tunings to suit your desires and needs.

  • Simple and Easy-to-Use Tuner;

Not only is the tuner straightforward, but it also has a high task performance rate.

  • Noise Cancellation Software;

With the GuitarTuna, audio processing is accurate and fast thanks to the noise cancellation software that deals with any background noise.

  • Extensive Chord Library;

Other than being comprehensive, the chord library has derivatives accompanied by fingering charts for each.

  • Metronome;

With the aid of the metronome, you can change the beat by tapping at the desired speed or manually. As such, you can practice all you have learned.

  • Mini-Game for Learning (6 Ultimate Chord Learning Games);

Beginner or experienced, you can hone your skills and understand the chords using recognition games on the app. All you need to do is focus on the diagrams and chords and be attentive to recognize the chords and practice them on your guitar.

  • Offers Different Tunings;

These include open, standard, 7-string, half step down tunings, drop D and many more.

The mic acts as a listening aid.

Usability 5/5

Created by guitarists for other guitarists, GuitarTuna is user-friendly and very practical. Your level of expertise does not matter when it comes to this app. The app works by determining the strings’ deviation and providing you the direction to adjust your guitar.

Also, the GuitarTuna Pro add-ons can help you with other string instruments and have similar accuracy and efficiency as with the guitar. Furthermore, there are some in-app purchases to help you with the chords.

Compatibility 4/5

The GuitarTuna app works with Android, iOS, and PC via web browser. The Android devices supporting the app have to be 15 API and above. You can get GuitarTuna from the Apple or Google Store for free. However, to access additional features, you need the paid version which is available from $0.99 to $12.99 for Android users.


The primary objective of the GuitarTuna is to help you sharpen your musical skills by offering accuracy and advanced but practical training. The app achieves this goal with the use of recognition games among other features. Supported by Yousician, the app uses the most recent technology to enhance performance.

Perhaps this is the reason why it is one of the most popular guitar turners out there and has over 10 million gets. Also, the advantages of the app outweigh all its shortcomings.
