Works well enough, but C is a bit off
This is the simplest tuner you could have. Think of it like a tuning fork. There's 4 buttons for the 4 strings. Press one of the notes, listen, and play the corresponding note on your cello. Adjust as necessary if it sounds too high or low. My only complaint is that the C tone is a bit off. If that's fixed then the app is worth 5 stars.

It’s a tuner for people who have an ear
It works great. Nice and fast - I use it every time I practice my cello. A big step up from a tuning fork. But it doesn’t tell you if your note is too high or too low- you have to be able to do that by hearing and comparing the sounds from your tuner and cello.

Wasn’t bad at all!
It worked every time and I liked how sharp it felt to the touch as well!

Perfect Pitch
This works much better than previous sites I've tried using. It matches great and I use it all the time before I practice!

Screen stayed blank???
I got this app so I could tune my out-of-tune cello. But when I tapped the notes nothing happened. The screen stayed the same as when I had first opened it. It didn’t even do anything as I played any notes. Please fix this.

Just plays notes not a tuner
The expectation of a tuner is that it listens and tells you to go higher or lower. This just played notes and not well to tune by ear. I kinda want my $0.99 back

Sounds nothing like a cello
Plays weird buzzing sounds for each of the strings. Sounds nothing like a cello. Doesn't listen so it's not a real tuner. I'm gald I didn't spend any money on this.

Great Reference Tones
I dont know what everyone else was thinking when they acquired this app, but apparently they expected something that would sound like a high dollar cello that would tune yours automatically. In all honesty, it sounds great for reference. You won't compose Beethoven's 5th on it, but if you're a beginner needing a reference tone for your open steing tuning its excellent. What else is cool, is that you can hit two notes simultaneously and hear both notes together. I love the way low register 5ths sound on this. I'm a guitarist transformed to electric bass, exploring cello and upright bass. Don't listen to the negatives on here, this app is worth the time to download

I dont event play cello, i play viola. I got this app so i could help tune the others who actualy DO play the cello. It works fine. Its in tune, its got all 4 strings, and it helps you tune. Does it sound like a cello? Debatable. But cmon people, what do u want? Yoyo ma playing an A flat scale for you? Btw person some comments below me, its spelled disgrace. Maybe you should practice spelling and grammar as much as your cello.

Decent app
I like the app for its easy to use interface and no complications. I notice some people say that it doesn't even sound like a cello, but it gives you the right note to tune to (which is exactly what I needed). I would recommend it unless you want something more professional.

This is great but...
Great! My only issues: - I know a tuner doesn't have to sound like a cello, but it would help if it didn't sound so techno. - Playing the note should not be such a short time. I am just learning how to tune and it gets kinda annoying every time I stop to keep the note going. My suggestion for this issue: • Just keep it going until you touch it to make it stop! For a free app, it's pretty good! ( I would have been disapointed If I had to pay for this! )

This app I very useful. It doesn't tune your cello by it's self or tell you what to do but you can use it to know how you can adjust the pegs so you can tune your cello. If you say 1 star then you don't know how to use the app. It is very simple to use.

It's actually alright
For a free app this is not bad. Sure it could use some more features and maybe sound better... But I'm in HS Orchestra and use this maybe twice a week. Every time I use it I'm thankful I've got it.

Great app
Improvement: maybe make the tuning note last longer so you don't have to keep tapping it. Overall, I like the app and I'm to lazy to find an app better than this one ^_^

Stop complaining
It doesn't matter what it sounds like, it does what it says it does, and the tunes are perfectly on pitch. Grow up.

Ok , so I play the cello and thought that this would be fun but really it's useless...don't get it it's just a waste :( but I guess it would kinda be useful to teachers and people who know how to play professional cello.... But overall, it's a waste so take my word for it..! Bye! Happy Holidays! ;)

So.... Whoever said it sounds like a screaming cow was right, but at least the cow is playing cello at the same time. Kind of useless but if your desperate it's worth it.

Good app.
Whoever said this app snapped their string: it did not; you did. This is not a completely exact tuning noise, but works well if your cello is very out of tune.

Horrible it fluctuates and the sound quality of the real wooden instrument can't be sounded over these iPod or iPhone speakers this app is a waist of time take it from an expert I know I've been plating for 32 years and I practice my cello every day no matter what

It's a great app for what it is, but it would be nice if they made it louder. I have my volume all the way up and if I'm playing the cello, I can't hear it at all.

not very useful
not incredibly useful. should be able to tell if my cello is out of tune. and to the reviewer that mentions the SF Symphony, you should probably learn how to spell San Francisco if you want to sound credible.
