The popular (but aging) gStrings chromatic tuner app rewritten from scratch; with a multi-core optimized engine, improved fundamental frequency detection, smooth OpenGL graphics, a redesigned UX, and a simplistic/focused holo UI.

(!!) NOTE: this application is free to download, but will only work for a limited amount of time before you will have to activate it through a small one-time in-app purchase fee (~3EUR). Besides giving you a chance to try the app before you buy it, this was also the only way (due to technical constraints of the Play Store) to be able to give away this app for free to all existing gStrings users with paid content.

The app measures sound pitch using your phone's microphone, letting you tune any musical instrument (violin, viola, violoncello, bass, guitar, ukulele, piano, even wind instruments to name a few that have been tested).

Features include:
1. orchestra tuning (shifting/redefining tone frequencies, e.g. A440 > A443),
2. different temperaments (pythagorean, bagpipe, etc.),
3. custom user-defined temperaments,
4. different note namings (English, Latin, Hindustani),
4. a nonlinear scale,
5. microphone sensitivity setup,
6. pitch pipe.

If you were looking for a guitar tuner, try this!

Thank you note: most of the historic temperaments were included courtesy of NetCat AG.

Recently changed in this version

1. Improved audible feedback for blind musicians.

2. Four small bugs have been fixed.

3. Disabled the app on certain incompatible Samsung devices (Galaxy ACE and Galaxy Y variants): shame on Samsung for not complying with Android AudioRecord and openGL requirements!

    Looks nice and does the job. I use the tuner for my guitar and the pitch pipe for the timpani. A lot of people keep complaining about the price. To those people, I say, get over it. If you want a good app, free of ads, it will be paid for. If you don't w
