So what makes the TonalEnergy the best selling music practice app?

• Its an all-in-one app, with a state-of-the-art tuner, an advanced metronome, dedicated orchestral strings and guitar tuning page, a piano keyboard, sound analysis pages, and audio/visual recording capabilities.

• It’s easy to use. Options like the Target Tuner or Pitch Tracker are on all the main pages. TonalEnergy helps users create rewarding and attainable goals during a rehearsal or when working alone. Colorful analysis data pages and audio/video recording features enhance the experience of practice.

• The metronome is cutting edge. It offers unmatched flexibility in sound choices, tempo settings, meters, subdivision patterns and visual displays. Voice count-ins, the ability to create and edit preset groups and Ableton link for syncing multiple devices make this a superior tool for performers.

Listening skills can be developed through the use of the eight-octave keyboard, chromatic wheel and tone generator. There are no other sounds like these.

Pros and cons of TonalEnergy Tuner & Metronome app for iPhone and iPad

TonalEnergy Tuner & Metronome app good for

Great app for instrumentalists. The little tuning smiley face is so satisfying when you "get it right."
As a professional musician, I use this app daily. I love that I can use everything this app has to offer, and all at the same time if I wish. Its not just a tuner, or metronome, or tone generator, etc. its ALL, at once!
This app nails making a tuner app. There are so many extra features as well. Get this app.
I have played all of the stringed instruments on a professional level at one time or another. This app ROCKS! If you play any instrument and have a smart phone, get this app. That is all.
I really love this, for the capabilities for just 3.99. You wont need any other musical app for tuning, metronome, etc.
For those of us without perfect pitch it is nice having a source of any notes or chords in pocket

Some bad moments

I have to say, this would be a five star rating if it didnt kill my battery. It is a wonderful app that anyone from beginning musician to professional can benefit from. However, in an age where we rely on our devices for all aspects of our life, I cannot possibly recommend an app that so carelessly drains the battery of your device by pointlessly running in the background. If the developers take the time to publish an update, which seems unlikely considering the app has not seen an update for an extended time, I will be happy to update my review.
This app is great when it works. I use it all the time to tune my modular synth, but almost every time I run it (iPhone 6, latest iOS) it works for about 30 seconds before it loses a "signal" and the display shows no notes, as if its not "hearing" any tones at all. It might intermittently come back to life for a few seconds here and there, but the only way to get it to work again is to force-close the app and reopen. The. The cycle starts over again. Very frustrating.
using iphone 6, ios 9.3.5, app is updated. Every time i open it, it crashes after about 2 seconds.
This app has a lot of potential. However, it has not kept up with iOS updates and needs to be updated to be a native 64bit app. It acts funky and sometimes crashes on iOS 10.
I was tuning my trombone and it thought my Bb was an E. it didnt get any other note right either
Great app and tuner it has save my butt in band class multiple times for tuning
