Choose from eight tunings, including standard guitar, banjo, cello and chromatic. Tones mode plays tuned reference notes for each string to listen to as you tune your instrument, while Tuner mode detects the pitch of the sound coming from the mic.
See the detected pitch in four ways: as a standard note (G2, F#4, etc.), as a string on a guitar (a green string indicates the correct pitch), as a note on a music clef, or as a waveform with its frequency in Hertz.
Metronome keeps time with a flashing red dot and an audible click. You can add presets to the eight included classically-named tempos (Adagio, Allegro, etc.). Buttons set the tempo to quarter-, eighth-, 16th- or 32nd-notes, and another button switches to double-time.
Selecting the string to tune on the app’s guitar headstock, TyroTuner’s meter shows whether you’re too low, too high or just right and as you tune. An alternate mode measures the tone coming in and highlights which string on the guitar you’re closest to tuning properly.
Epicurus, that good old Greek (who is thought to have lived from around 341 to around 270 B.C.), really seemed to be onto something, believing that “the greatest good was to seek modest pleasures in order to attain a state of tranquility and freedom from fear…as well as absence of bodily pain.” (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epicureanism). In the spirit of Epicureanism, here are a handful of tools you can use to enjoy food and wine without ballooning up like Dionysus.
Simplify Media connects your iPhone to your friends' music libraries.
One of the features of iTunes that comes in handy on large networks is the ability to share music libraries with other iTunes users. Simplify Media extended this functionality in iTunes back in 2007 by allowing sharing with up to 30 other people outside of the local network. Its new mobile app enables streaming over Wi-Fi or over the cellular network, to allow even more portable access to friends’ music libraries.
