Anyone who plays an instrument knows how annoying it is when that instrument is out of tune. One loose string can ruin an entire song!
But one thing you don't want to hassle with is carrying around a tuner. Even though they're not nearly as bulky as they used to be, it's still an extra piece of equipment that you have to keep track of.
There's a better option. Did you know that you can tune your instrument using your smartphone or tablet? All you need is the right app.
GuitarTuna is a free app for both Android and Apple devices and works to help you tune string instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, bass guitars, mandolins, ukuleles, violins, cellos, fiddles, banjos and more.
The app uses your phone or tablet's microphone to listen to the tune of the strings, then the software analyzes the sound from there.
GuitarTuna has more than 100 tuning options available and also has in-app upgrades that you can purchase if you'd like more features beyond the basic tuner. GuitarTuna Pro costs $13 to download but includes specialty features such as tuning for seven and 12-string guitars.
