The digital age now means that things can be discovered by one simple click - the app store. Musicians are one of the foremost beneficiaries of this development in technology. From Guitar tuners to metronomes to chord sheets, all in one click just by downloading it via your phone's app store. So, I made a brief survey among musicians about their favourite music-related apps that have helped them in their music career.

Here are some of the apps that are worth sharing:

  1. GuitarTuna

A Guitarist needs a Tuner. This one is an inevitable need. Beginners and Experts cannot rely on one's ear for precise tuning. We need a guide, and this guide comes in different forms. The majority of guitarists still rely on a physical tuning device, but a number of guitarists who prefer the Guitar tuning app because of the convenience it brings.

GuitarTuna is just one of the many apps that can be used to tune your instrument. As suggested by one of the Pick Geek tribe members, Twitter user, Howard Xombie recommended this because of its convenience and user-friendly interface. Thanks for sharing Howard! It can tune your Guitar, ukelele, and Bass. You can download it for FREE.
