WHat's On My iPhone: Cleartune Chromatic Tuner

Share it Please
The other day when my harp's neck snapped (that's another story entirely) and I had to quickly dig out a small practice harp I had tucked away in its warm fuzzy carry bag, I realized I was going to have to tune this puppy every day for a while because it had been out of service for a while.

I left my tuner at work where the snapped harp had discombobulated me entirely.  At home, I wondered if I was up to tuning by ear - when a friend mentioned that he had a very easy to use and accurate chromatic tuner on his iPhone called Cleartune.

I downloaded it and wow!  It lets me quickly and accurately tune up anything using the iPhone's mic.  And the app site says it's availble on Android too.

The app features a wheel which quickly finds the note you're plucking and shows you just how close or far you are from being perfectly in tune.

After tuning my practice harp I started poking around t the other features, some of which I probably will never use, but wow again.  It supports custom temperaments, transposition and you can adjust the calibration.

I can't imagine an instrument that could not use Clearune.  I love it.  Best few dollars I spent recently, well, except for that Tall Latte.

Seeing Good At Work
I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
