Great tuner, terrible runaround. 1/5
By Calm until proven hangry
When you download the app, they neglect to tell you that it requires a weekly subscription that is waaaaay too costly. Then you need to go to iTunes to end the free trial and if you don’t, it automatically renews. They tell you not to use the app if you don’t agree to the terms and services, but that just seems like they are trying to pin their shadiness on you. They also don’t show you the terms and services until you’ve agreed to the free trial. Don’t be shady. Be honest upfront instead of giving information after the fact.
The easiest tuner app to use quickly 5/5
To use quickly and the kicker is it’s more precise than any other tuner I’ve used....Don’t know how those geniuses made it quick AND accurate but they did it and I will certainly appreciate their efforts every time I use it.... thanks guys/girls???
$32 a month 1/5
I have no idea how I missed it but I used this app once and it’s been charging me $8 a week for months 😡
By trollin bruh
Had to turn off WiFi just to get past the “try pro!” BS. No one would intentionally pay 8 dollars per week for a tuner and a met 😂
Deleted the app, still charged $8 1/5
I used this app once, then deleted it assuming that I wouldn’t be charged since it was before the free trial period ended. I was still charged even though the app wasn’t even on my phone, and it is unclear if I’ll continue to be charged. No clue how to turn off the automatic renewal feature. Seems designed to just bleed money from people.
Wish I could give zero stars. It forces you into a “free trial” followed by an expensive subscription, billed WEEKLY. It doesn’t make it easy to unsubscribe or contact them. Just wasted $15 on this to tune my guitar once. Find a different app.
Do not download this app 1/5
It was a real pain to cancel my subscription before they charged me $7.99. They instructed me to go to many links to cancel my subscription and they were not even real. I had to look at the reviews to find how to cancel it. Next time I get an app I will definitely look at the reviews first. Lesson learned!
Don’t make the app free and then make you buy it in app you monsters 1/5
You’re a tuning app not Netflix
Bad support 1/5
By medium size apple
I have been trying to cancel the weekly subscription but there is no way to do it in the app. I wrote to support but they never answered. Unless you're planning to keep using it, don't try it because it is a hassle to cancel
No free 1/5
Requires an 8$ per week subscription !
The cost is ridiculous. 1/5
Weekly cost? Seriously?
Great Reminder 4/5
By MJR's G'ma
I haven’t played my guitar in 55 years and needed a reminder to tune my granddaughter’s new instrument. This worked and I can now do it! I’ll teach her in a few minutes.
A DOWNRIGHT SCAM 1/5
(Note: This app doesn’t even deserve a star.)
Do not even download this app - they will trick you into a “free trial” and then charge you weekly, even if you UNINSTALL the it. The only way to get out of this cycle of awful is a roundabout way of UNSUBSCRIBING from the app.
To the creator/ owner of the app:
You should be ashamed of yourself. You literally are scamming folks who just want to tune their instruments and uplift the world with music. REFUND THOSE YOU HAVE WRONGED. I’m gonna make sure to tell everyone I know to not use this app.
Great tuner - too expensive 5/5
By Keith Michael Roberts
I’ve played the guitar for more than 50 years professionally. This is one of the best tuners I’ve found. But, charging weekly, this app costs over $400 per year.
It’s a shame that the manufacturer won’t sell this app outright for a single fee, perhaps less than $130.
You know, I really love this tuner, but will be cancelling it anyway due to the very high price (cleverly concealed behind a low recurring cost: > $35 per month.
Keith Michael Roberts
Why is it so expensive 1/5
8 dollars a week is a ridiculous price just to tune your guitar in different tunings
Trying to unsubscribe impossible! 1/5
Please help us by unsubscribing. Tried multiple times and it’s been the most frustrating experience !
Downloaded the app in order to tune my ukulele, I realized it was too expensive and I deleted it. I checked my subscription services to see if it gave me a trial so I could cancel it. It did and I canceled my services because I didn’t want it. Fast forward and now it has charged me 8 dollars for a service I don’t even use and I cancelled before hand? I check again and the subscription is there like nothing even happened? So I had to cancel it twice??? I really hope it does not do this again.
This app steals $ 1/5
This app is not free. By downloading the app, you are tricked into paying $8 per week. They don’t tell you up front, but you get a free 24 hr trial, after which you are automatically subscribed to a weekly membership costing $8 per week, from which there is no way to unsubscribe in the app. Once download, you’re already on the path to being charged, with no way to prevent it. This app steals money.
Hard to imagine 1/5
Hard to imagine a four star rating when the only reviews posted are in reference to the fact that the app charges an absurd amount of money per week for limited features that can be found for free other places. $7.99 per week!!! Per year is pushing it.
By nick kruser
I got a free app to tune a guitar. So basic and now I see they have been charging me $7.99 a week for months. Don’t be involved with this style of company. Im going to wrote this everywhere unless they give me a refund
Forced to Subscribe 1/5
By Tilted Lamp
I got this app to tune a guitar that I painted as a gift for someone. However, upon opening the app I was forced to start a free trial. Do not respond and say the subscription is ‘optional’, because it’s not. There is no way to close out of the subscription screen. When I discovered this, I decided to go ahead and start my free trial since I would be deleting the app after I tuned this one guitar, since I don’t have any guitars of my own nor do I know how to play one. When I tried to start my free trial, however, it wouldn’t let me because I didn’t have enough money on my phone for the app to steal once my week was up. I find it to be very misleading and unfair to label your app as ‘free to use’ and then force people into a subscription. To everyone looking for a guitar tuner, do not get this one if you want a free tuner. Go find a different app. To the developer, please either fix the issue of being stuck on the subscription screen or stop labeling the app as ‘free to use’.
Trash don’t download it’s a rip off 1/5
So you can’t cancel the free trial until you pay, so it’s not a free trail it’s a scam 7.99 a month to tune your guitar terrible ! Don’t get scammed!!
DO NOT BUY 1/5
By The miraculous team
I was outraged be the fact that you have to start a free trial unlike it advertised, this is false advertising would not recommend
416 bucks a year 1/5
That’s what this app costs to use it. Total scam.
The developer responds to these type of reviews with a glib “you don’t have to pay” explanation. That’s true, but that’s not an explanation. It’s flim-flam. And so is the app. I don’t see anything in that app which justifies gouging people out of that amount of money. Shame on you.
Had to pay 1/5
I’m giving it a 1 star because it won’t let me try out the tuner. It is making me buy it
Not free. Pure subscription based 1/5
By Brandon Schmeidler
It opens and tells you the features. There is no free ad version. Garbage click bait.
It charged me when I only used a free trial for 20 minutes 1/5
How do I keep this from charging me when I no longer have this app installed?
Tricks you into signing up 1/5
Luckily I noticed and immediately grabbed my computer to cancel. Why is this the first result to show up?
$8 a Week!!! 1/5
First week free. $8/week after that. Go buy a tuner for $10 off eBay or download one of the actually free tuners through another app. These guys deserve to go broke!
***Update. -$8 a WEEK!!! That’s $32/month. Skip the app, Buy a digital that is permanent for $12-20.
This App will only let me do it if I pay for it it’s it’s free Apple iPhone store so why should I have to pay for this app is stupid and useless
Only one instrument😡 1/5
I wanted to tune my ukulele but it on had tuning for guitar so if you have anything other than a guitar I wouldn’t recommend it unless you wanna pay
Functionally Fantastic....Too Costly 2/5
By Dulcimer Dan
I play a Hammered Dulcimer and the fully chromatic tuner function is what I was interested in. The tuner functioned fantastic, was super accurate, and was easy to use. From a functionality perspective I would give the app five gold stars. However, the weekly high cost of $7.99 sadly prevents me from continuing to be a customer. That’s a pretty steep ongoing cost, much higher than many streaming music and video services on the Internet. I could, and likely will, purchase a top of the line dedicated hardware tuner at the music store for a one time cost for less than a few months of your ongoing cost. As a retired person with a fixed income I can not justify the ongoing expense. So, due to an unusually high ongoing cost I have to give your app a seriously lower rating. Would you please reconsider your funding model to make the cost more reasonable and consider a one-time cost of about two or thee months of your ongoing fee? (Just a suggestion to achieve the five gold star rating the app should have.)
This is a scam app 1/5
Do not download this app. It says it’s free with in app purchases. It should say it’s free but we’re just gonna take money from you in a few days. I can’t even find the unsubscribe option. It just takes me to the support page which isn’t very supportive or helpful.
Edit:Reply to Developer
Ummm... I already tried to use your “free” version. Remember??? You charged my account. You really think I am going to fall for it again?
How do you unsubscribe?
Unknown Weekly Subscription Fees 1/5
By Tryp Givens
Fake free app, you don’t realize you’re on a weekly subscription payment until the charges occur!
Thanks for nothing. Didn’t even use the awful app.
$7.99 a week for a guitar tuner app!!?! 1/5
I installed the "free" version of the app before realizing that I'd inadvertently subscribed to the world's most expensive guitar tuner. I uninstalled it two minutes after installing it. Sure enough, one week later, I got hit with a charge for $7.99. After complaining to Apple, my money was refunded. Beware the bait-and-switch!
Forced to buy app 1/5
They said I could “try it for free” and for some “weird” reason I thought I could “try it for free”. Need to be more professional and STOP HIDING PRICES! Plus I never asked for the pro whatever thing.
Who in their right mind would pay a $7.99 weekly subscription for a guitar tuner? I can hardly fathom the greed of some developers, my god. You’re better off humming and matching your guitar to that, rather than paying a weekly fee to use a guitar tuner.
No point 1/5
All I need is the chromatic tuner and I can’t get pass the free trail page because I don’t want to set up my card info and after my frustration I realize it’s cheaper (and WAY better) in the long run to just buy a tuner. It’ll last for as long as you take care of it and won’t charge you 7.99 (plus tax) every month
As many other reviewers here, this app managed to con several $8 payments from me without my knowledge. I spent several months trying to figure out who was taking $8 a week from me.
This app should not be allowed to be in the app store.
How to cancel subscription from these scammers 1/5
By Bailey ReAnne Walton
So I have been being secretly charged for 3 weeks now with this app. I had deleted it thinking nothing about it for 3 weeks until I found out that they’ve been charging me. If you want to delete this app and you have an apple iPhone go to apple support and look up how to delete subscriptions and they show you. You’re welcome.
What??! 🤯🤬🤬🤬🤬😤 1/5
$7.99 per week??!!!! $7👏.9👏9👏?!? PER👏WEEK👏?!? Absolutely FOOLISH. I don’t even care about the app quality at that point. So in a year (that’s 52 weeks for those of you who are special enough to pay $7.99/month for a phone-based tuner), I will have paid $415.48 for a cell phone tuner app RENTAL! Wow. Guitar players: THINK OF WHAT YOU CAN GET FOR $415.48!!! Pedals, another guitar, an iPad, a car payment...A BACKPACK FULL OF GUITAR TUNERS?!?!
App developer absurdity at its finest.
Don’t download 1/5
Can’t use it without paying or starting a week trial. Don’t download it
Stay away. Forces you have into $8 per month subscription 1/5
Struggling to cancel forced subscription.
How do you cancel the premium membership
Forced to pay 1/5
By mose girl
I used the free things that are offered on this app for a couple of weeks and then deleted it. It was still attached to my account somehow and has been charging me for a few months now. When I submitted a complaint and requested a refund it denied my request. Disappointing
Please help me unsubscibe 1/5
I need help on ending my free trial
DO NOT download this app! 1/5
This app is such a scam. They offer a free trial then there’s no way to cancel your free trial before you start getting charged TWICE per MONTH! It’s a freakin guitar tune app, why would it be so expensive!? What a joke! Don’t buy anything from this company. There are plenty of free tuner apps. Thank you
False advertising. Tricks you to pay multiple times not happy with this app
