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!

Perfect! It's perfect for many instruments, but it would be nice if you could add a metronome option.

Beautiful display, easy to use, easy to configure, tunes banjo fine The analog display is large, beautiful, and easy to read. The controls took only a minute to figure out, after which it is an easy app to use. The display is as least as responsible as that on my Snark tuner. Its sensitivity seems fine--It had no problem tuning my five-string banjo when I put my phone on a music stand at arm's length. There is a minor bug with the frequency display: If you turn on the digital frequency display, the tuner will digitally annotate the note it heard (for example, "A b 2 206"), which is great. However, a formatting problem is causing some additional characters to be displayed below the frequency number but chopped off and indecipherable. Perhaps they are the fractional part of the frequency; I can't really tell. However, this is a minor issue with an extra option which is not needed to use the app to tune your instrument: The analog display does a fine job by itself. A minor issue with the pitch pipe causes the high octaves are too loud and the low octaves too quiet. If I turn the volume up enough to hear, e.g., d3, and then select d6, it's very loud and piercing. This was on a OnePlus One.

Update Have loved and used this app for years but don't really feel like it's changed much, would really appreciate an update with a higher res icon and maybe newer ui. As far as function goes though it's great.
