Do you play the guitar or another instrument? You may well like Tuner for BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 19 Apr 2013 05:41 am EDT

Are you musical? Own a guitar or similar? Tuner for BlackBerry 10 could come in rather handy for you. As the name suggests it is a simple instrument tuner that utilizes the microphone on the BlackBerry and shows you which key the noise is in.

This is the free version of the application and for basic tuning this one suits me down to the ground. Purchasing the full edition can be done from within the app and only costs £0.75/$0.99.

If you do want to upgrade you can take advantage of the following features:

  • View Octaves
  • See cents info
  • Unlock Notes page
  • Remove ads

Although I do have a couple of guitars (which I don't play very often) this application is certainly going to replace the alternative methods that I have been using over the years. It may be basic but is sure is a sweet utility app to have on your device.

If Tuner looks of interest go grab the free version and see how you get on.

I guess I saved the day. I was pretty tempting everyone says it feels great.

Unrelated to the post Cibc banking app is now available in bbw

This is great I deal with Scotia and Cibc and they both told me they had no plans at this time to build an app

Viber and Skype remain. Read that Skype for bb10 would be out on the 30th of April. But not sure how reliable this information is.

Am I the only one who thinks that the cents info is reversed? When the string should be tightened, the cent info shows a minus and the other way around. This is opposite of what I am used to from virtually any other tuner I have used in my life.

Just got my first guitar and I have no clue what you're talking about. Hopefully it will soon enough.

The "key" a "noise" is in? How about the pitch of a tone instead? The free app is pretty much useless as it doesn't indicate how sharp or flat a pitch is. Useful only for beginners trying to tune open strings approximately. Useless for more advanced musicians.

Waiting for garage-band like multitrack recording (such as Cubase iC Pro), guitar pro, pocket band, pocket guitar, and pianist. Shazam and Soundhound would be great too!

Tuner wants/needs access to my files? No, thank you. Chromatic Tuner seems a less intrusive option so I am going to try Chromatic Tuner. Besides it is a available for both BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry PlayBook.

I downloaded this as soon as I got my Z10 because I needed to know which pitch a Rajaton song was recorded in so I could convert it to the pitch it was written in (so that my group could listen and learn) and this worked perfectly. Also fun for testing which friends have perfect pitch or close.
