The old fashioned tuning fork forces critical listening and this ultimately improves musicality and pitch. We decided to emulate that experience on the Kindle Fire.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) January 09, 2012
As the Kindle Fire heats up the marketplace, developers work to reach an audience still amazed by their first magical tablet. One such company is Web Flex Media LLC, a Denver-based developer of interactive music tools. Their latest effort is a guitar tuner that helps musicians tune by ear using the sound of each string. The free version of Guitar Tuner supports standard tuning, while the full featured, Guitar Tuner PLUS includes the seven most popular alternate tunings.
Ben Long is a co-founder and music composer for interactive media. He explains how the app came to be: "It dawned on me that modern guitar tuners only require eyesight to tune a guitar, while the ears often take a rest. The old fashioned tuning fork forces critical listening and this ultimately improves your pitch and musicality. We decided to emulate that experience on the Kindle Fire."
The web-based version is completely free to use and can be accessed on any flash compatible web browser. The company plans to release a full line of products in 2012 and port all existing apps from Flash to HTML5 with the long tern goal of functionality on every mobile device.
John Battagline, a co-founder and veteran programmer, explains the companies position in the marketplace: "The Kindle Fire will permanently change the mobile landscape and create a unique opportunity for app creators. We are looking at various ad networks for the free version although most of the free apps on the Fire are not taking advantage of ad revenue. For now, the conversions from free to the paid version are the main focus. There is a large part of the population that has never owned a tablet and now they can use it to tune their guitars."
