    "I never was very good at tuning my strat, so this app has helped immensely. It works perfectly, almost scarily well and I'm not sure what I would do if I hadn't found it. I'd recommend this to anyone having trouble tuning, or would just like an easier time of it."

    "Look, this app does what it says, more or less. But have you ever noticed professional musicians use professional equipment? Ever pondered, why would they, when an app can do it? Because an app can't do it. Your phone's microphone is not the kind of equipment that can tune a mechanical strobe. It's just not accurate enough. This can suffice for people who are just starting out, or amateurs, but honestly it's just not good enough for someone serious about music."
