    Hey,
    What is the best, most accurate and usable guitar tuner for the Droid?

    What are the other "must-use" apps for guitarists?

    Thanks!!

    Gstring is probably the best tuner I've tried. Solo is fun to play around with for a little while. You can select chords and strum or pick. Haven't really messed with many more than that...Kinda lacking....

    Tabdroid. Allows you to play guitarpro tabs on the little droid. Pretty cool stuff.

    i agree gstring is my fav tuner, it even has autotune function if u r not quite sure

    as for other programs, i like g-tar it has every root note chord (A B C D E F G and A#/Bb C#/Db... well u get the picture) from maj all the way down to m7b5 and even has sample songs to try, only thing i cant find is split chords but go ahead and try for yoself

    I think Solo would go from a very boring app to a very cool app if they would just animate the strings.

    Thanks for recommending TabDroid, downloading that now.

    I sent an e-mail to Peterson support to make the Strobe Tuner app for iPhone for Android. Wish they would get that going! Also, would like the PRS app for iPhone.

    I don't like Tabdroid at all. Funny how something some people like is not appreciated at all by others :)

    I am not really interested in tab software - but an accurate tuner and metronome is a must.

    GStrings looks like a best-in-class tuner with lots of good reviews.

    It looks like mixed reviews on metronomes. Apparently, metronome software lags and skips as the Droid does background operations. Any solid metronome apps out there?

    Everytime I hear the word G string, I start reaching for my dollar bills. :)

    I had to bump this thread and quote my own message because like 24 hours after I posted the above, they had an update to Solo and now the strings are animated. I appreciate the fact that he/she/they did that for a free app. Pretty cool of them. Thank you, Solo creators.

    My boss just got that Fender edition droid from Tmobile... The guitar app on that is pretty fun, it also has drums.. Can we get that one (is that what solo is?)

    Nice to see some fellow guitar player Droid users! I have the full version of Solo on mine, plus a decent guitar tuner which I forget the name of at the moment. I am hoping that Petersons puts out their strobe tuner to the Andriod platform at some point.

    Don't forget iReal Book for Android. This would be more useful for me as a Sax player if it also included the melodies, but you guitar players only need the chord progressions.

    I bought the full-up version of Solo - it's fun to goof around with.

    I noticed that Solo Lite is still installed. Does anyone know if it's OK to chuck the Lite version? Do they share libraries that might be deleted if I chuck Lite??
