I am a long time user of the Strobostomp. I also purchased the phone version when it first came out. On stage, I prefer the box on the floor, but for home practice or in the studio, keeping the phone app on the music stand is ideal. As the strings age, their intonation characteristics change, and the accuracy of the Peterson tuners is so good that adjustments to the bridge to compensate are quick and easy, and can be done with complete confidence.

This app emulates strobe tuners very, very well!! Using this tuner has really helped my intonation (which was already good, I've been a professional musician for several years.) If you're doing anything involving tuning an instrument, do yourself a favor and get this app. It's well worth the price!

It is a steal, even at $10. This app is a successful implementation of Peterson's virtual strobe proprietary technology. The application compares very favorably with my original 490 and my StroboStomp 2.

I am a professional musician and stringed instrument tech, and even though I can tune to within 5 cents by ear, this is an invaluable tool to constantly have in my pocket. To the reviewer that defiled the ratings out of ignorance because it's "IOS 11 only" - if you have a legacy device, as I do, the workaround is to buy the application through iTunes on a computer, then "get" from the App Store on your device. To the others who removed a star because it doesn't have a pitch pipe or metronome - where in the description does it claim these features?

This is a tuner, and a damned good one. A used replacement for my StroboStomp would be $70. Many naysayers here probably have a $100+ Boss TU-2 on their pedal board (it is crap, has no pitch pipe or metronome, and employs LEDs to get ...
