Chromatic Tuner Apps for Mobile Devices
These apps are designed for mobile platforms such as iOS (iPhone and iPod touch), Android and Pocket PC. These span from simple guitar tuners to full featured mini-versions of professional software tuners. The chief advantage of these is convenience of a handheld platform, though the smaller displays may not convey as much information as full computer counterparts. Prices range from free to several hundred dollars.
