User reviews of Cleartune - Chromatic Tuner
Great app! Would be handy if it would include tuning with a capo on a acoustic western guitar... Also the Iphone app shows hz. Why not include this in the android version. Plenty of screen real estate

This is the king of tuners on Android. Different temperaments make this a must have for early music players. Tunes my violone and viols just fine!

what has happened to this app? I cannot download it! Thpough all data can be seen in searching for it when it comes to install phone comes up with 'pname bitcount cleartune cannot be found'. Can pay and download other apps OK. No answers from bitvount or appbrain. REVDNSM

With Moto G, problem with adding custom temperaments. A brilliant app on my old Samsung phone. Only one gripe: couldn't find info on the built-in temperaments. To describe a temp. as "almost-equal" or "early French" is really vague & unhelpful. But I fed in some temperaments which I regularly use, and it all worked fine. But I bought a Morotola Moto G in May 2014. The app works ok EXCEPT that it's impossible to add new temperaments. I contacted Bitcount support on May 24, they said they'd look into fixing the problem. No news since. The version on Google play was updated in 2012. The blurb here says "We regularly obtain new Android devices to test compatibility. Currently Cleartune does not support very small screens, but we are unaware of any other compatibility issues on any device . If you have any issues with Cleartune, please let us know so we can obtain your specific device for testing." This statement is unconvincing. It has been untrue since May 2014 that "we are unaware of any other compatibility issues on any device".

Still the Best I've tried almost all of the chromatic tuning apps with "A" calibration and temperament options and always come back to Cleartune. Also reads low (double bass, violone) pitches better than any of the others.
