Tuna String is a digital guitar tuner app that will be available on both the Android and iOS. This app is for guitarists of all levels that want a quick no non-sense tune-up so that they can get jamming as quick as possible with no fuss.
Tuna String’s Pluck-N-Play interface all you have to do is just open the app, pick a tuning key, and pluck away while Tuna String automatically detects which string you're trying to tune, and tells you whether you need to tighten or loosen the strings.
The issue with most existing tuners is that they try to copy the appearance of physical tuners rather than adapt to the phone. They either become hard to read, or set too serious of a mood for what is supposed to be a fun session. The app is meant to be quick and easy to use. I was going for a laid back look and feel compared to existing tuners.
Initial Mock Up
If we look at the functionalities within the application itself, we'll very quickly realise that we've got everything we might need from a guitar tuner. The real difference comes from how it presents itself to the user. By avoiding the cutting edge look and feel, we've adapted the app to suit people who might not be professional guitarists or adept guitarists for that matter.
The way we present something will easily change how people perceive it. Make the app a bit playful, and users might think this is a lightweight app that's easy to use, and if you make it a bit more serious people might see the application as a bit too sophisticated for their current skill level.
