There are plenty of apps available for iPhone that can come in handy for any guitarist. Whether you are an amateur or a pro guitarist there is bound to be a few apps that you could make use of, especially with how many are out there to choose from.
Out of all the apps available, which ones are the most useful for a guitarist to have installed on their iPhone? In this article I will list the four handiest iPhone apps for any guitarist to have.
With Tempo, you never have to worry about not having a metronome on hand when you are playing guitar.
Tempo comes with 35 different time signatures, 6 rhythm patterns for simple meters and 3 for compound meters. It also includes a tap tempo function and tempo ranges from 10 to 800.
Tempo is a really handy app simply because it allows you to always have a metronome on hand without needing to carry one around. Even better, at only $1.99 Tempo is cheaper than most physical metronomes.
Having a tuner nearby is always handy. With the AccuTune app, you can make sure that you always have a tuner to use at all times.
With AccuTune, you have two different ways you can tune your guitar: either by playing it near your iPhone’s microphone, or by plugging in your guitar using a cable adapter. Using the microphone method will also allow you to tune an acoustic guitar as well.
Everything you can expect from a guitar tuner is here, and all for only $0.99.
