Chromatic Tuner app for Android

I shared a website resource some time back to help tune your ukulele.  But wouldn't it be nifty if you can have a device you can carry around with you to help with the same task, short of buying a chromatic tuner?  I wondered if there is such an app for the Android, and a quick search revealed there is quite a number.

But the best one I have found so far is DaTuner.  Using it is really easy.  Activate DaTuner, place your mobile device near your ukulele (or guitar for that matter), then strum the desired string (repeatedly if needed, such as in the case of the ukulele where the sound does not get sustained as long as a guitar's).  DaTuner will pick the note and display it.  Adjust your string tension accordingly.  Now I don't have to worry about my son messing up the tuning of the ukulele!

The Free version works perfectly, but you can also get the Pro version worth only NZ$3.02.

Get DaTuner from the Android Market
