Are you a great guitar lover and would you like to take advantage of new technologies to best match your instrument? Then you will have nothing to fear: thanks to smartphones, you can do it in a very simple way, using one of the many apps made specifically for this purpose. If you want to give a boost to your music and leave your band and your fans with a guitar perfectly tuned and in a few steps, you should particularly use these best 10 apps to tune the guitar for Android.
Chromatic Guitar Tuner is a simple synthesizer with a nice interface and a set of features in the standard: it is not the most complete app to tune your guitar, but certainly is one of the most versatile, considering that you can also tune other instruments, such as for example the violin or the bass. Unfortunately, using it may be a little inconvenient due to banner ads.
Digit Club Tuner is probably the easiest and most basic app on our list. It has no significant characteristics, but has the fact that it is completely free. With this app, however, you can tune your guitar quickly and in a very simple way: as with the previous app, even in this case you can tune different instruments from the guitar.
Cleartune Chromatic Tuner is also a very simple and basic app, but it has a really interesting feature: using it, you can take advantage of a tuning interface that will allow you to tune virtually any stringed instrument. In addition, the app is known for its accuracy and a series of goodies, such as automatic selection of notes. Unfortunately, it has not been updated since 2012.
DaTuner is a good mix of fairly complex options: on the one hand it allows you to take advantage of automatic options such as the green screen that appears when you finish the guitar tuning, while on the other hand you can take advantage of manual options. Unfortunately, it is neither meat nor fish: DaTuner is too little for those looking for something genuinely professional, but it is still great for beginners.
gStrings Tunes is an old guitar tuning app, full of options and capable of tuning any musical instrument, including the piano. Although it is one of the top applications of this type, gStrings is still very competitive, due to the many features that it makes available to you.
Let’s now move on to one of the most appealing apps from a design point of view: GuitarTuna. It is a professional level application complete with a built-in metronome, and with a range of features that will even let you take guitar lessons. Absolutely an app to try, especially if you’re a budding musician.
Pano Tuner is a great mix between simplicity and eye-catching graphics: this app has an old school interface and some features that make it right in the ranking of the best applications to tune the guitar on Android. Such as the precision microphone, the frequency for concerts, and the usual ability to tune any stringed instrument.
PitchLab Guitar Tuner is probably the app to tune the most professional and complex guitar you’ll ever find. Its dial is invaded by a myriad of options and, as you can easily imagine, most are unusable if you are not already an expert musician. If you are a novice, the advice is to avoid using this app, if not to browse.
Even Pro Guitar Tuner is an app aimed above all professionals of the guitar: includes many different options, and is able to give you an instrument tuned to perfection. The only fault is the price: the Pro version, in fact, is excessively expensive.
We close with Smart Chords and Tools: a complex app with a library of agreements that is nothing short of frightening. If you are looking for the top of the range, you can not do without this app, even with regard to the interface graphics.
