It's a lot better than I was expecting. I did run into 1 issue though. I made a custom tuning for drop C#, which in the ext. is (C#, A♭, C#, F#, B♭, E♭). But, for some reason the E♭ plays as C# instead, even though it's correct in all the other stock tunings it's included in. I tried setting it as F to get E♭ but every other note plays correctly. Anyway, it's not anything I can't get around, I just figured you might like to know about it. Thanks.

I obviously cant work it properly yet. It seems simple only it needs like a speedo needle to show how far out you are either way. (Eflat on the way is meaningless to me unless it tells me how to get to A) Also ok we only need the E, I really need all the help I can get wid the rest even using the 5th (think that is what I do). It is good you can put your own personal settings in which i will investigate when i get more proficient at app. Thanks, its great.

It works. It's fast and easy. Basically you only need the low E string to tune a guitar to standard tuning, this gives you all 6 strings and is one way of finding out if your intonation is correct on whatever guitar you are tuning. good app
