Best guitar app for Iphone

Well, I just bought an Iphone.

Obviously the first thing to do is download a guitar app. I have seen a couple, but am wondering which is the best.

So who's tried what?

I don't want to sound like an a-hole, but I know that a lot of people don't like the Iphone and I respect your reasons, but in the context of this thread I don't want to get into a huge discussion about it. I just want to know about the apps.

GuitarToolkit is good

Tuner, chords that play the chord note by note, fretboard tool, metronome.

Also supports alternate tunings

Doesn't Dimarzio have an app? Or is it Planet Waves? I'm too cheap to dump 10 bones into an app.

Guitarist reference is good but the application i use the most is Cleartune tuner it always usefull and accurate.
You can also jailbreak your phone its very easy but only do it to put applications that are not supported or sold by apple.

Oh! and by the way every app for free is called stealing.

Re: Best guitar app for Iphone

Great thread.
I have also been looking for guitar apps. but haven't found one that has good reviews.

HOWEVER!!!!! Download Trapster. It will tell you where all of the speed camera's, red light camera's, speed traps, and even where active cops are giving tickets.

If you are a baseball fan MLB Lite is a must.

For $10 or $20, you can get the Peterson Strobe app. Same software as the crazy priced tuners in the stores.

Cable optional.

Gool stuff.

I downloaded GuitarToolkit and have been having fun with that. It is very good actually. I have been "playing" the intro to sweet child all weekend.

That Peterson one looks good. I like the adapter cable. Anyone know where I can get it in the UK?

Re: Best guitar app for Iphone

If somebody doesn't like the iPhone they clearly have never touched one.

My friend has one and i believe it to be one of the coolest inventions ever. Most of the apps are pretty useless, but some can be very helpful.

Re: Best guitar app for Iphone

Well I finally uploaded a review of the guitar toolkit in the reviews section, you can see it here:

http://www.jemsite.com/compare-softw...phone/reviews/

Definately worth a download.

I am currently playing around with some ear training software, it is going well and my 4 year old son is also getting into it.

Definitely iStrobosoft from Peterson tuners, well worth the money. I've done a review for it for Jemsite (I've lost the email for the direct link), it should appear in the search directory soon.
