"Check the tune out before playing"

Tuner - gStrings is an app that let you tune any musical instrument by measuring sound pitch and intensity

This is the paid version (€1) of Tuner - gStrings with no ads.

This is one of those app that add a new functionality to your Android. The "physical tuner" era is over, you can do it from your mobile phone with Tuner - gStrings. There's a chromatic tuner that let you choose the string on the top bar, and play the sound or catch it from external instrument.

What's more, it includes a wide range of features to adjust it to your needs: frequency for different instrument, microphone sensitive, temperaments, playback octave, scale range, pitch pipe... among many many other. You can set even the details.

If you don't like the default appearance of the tuner, you can change it from the menu, tapping on "skins". We don't really understand the need to change the skin to this tool, since the important thing is to have lots of settings to achieve accuracy in tuning. But anyway, it doesn't disturb, it's just an extra feature. What we are missing is that the real instrument sounds for the option "play sound". The current sound is a neutral "dial tune".

Tuner - gStrings has been developed by cohortor.org, a promising developer who has launched, besides that, two other apps in the market: Metronome Widget and DCSwitch (to enable/disable data channel - APN).

Tuner - gStrings is a great app. It works properly, does what it says, it has a wide range of settings to customize it to your taste and add a new functionality to your Android (and that implies saving some money). High recommendable.
