I use the iStroboSoft iPhone App by Peterson. Seems very accurate, I use it to set the intonation on my guitar builds. Maybe a bit pricey with all the options but I really like it. I particularly like being able to train and cancel out a noise sample for environments where there might be an air conditioner or other background noise.

I love my Korg clip-on tuner because it's easy to use and it is very accurate. The tuner that I have on my phone is simply a "get by" that I use when I don't have my Korg with me, but it certainly isn't very accurate. I usually just tune the E string and tune by harmonics for the rest of the strings.

I use a PolyTune clip and also their app for my iPhone. It is a polyphonic tuner. The clip on is a bit pricey but very accurate. I like the fact that I can strum all 6 open strings and immediately see which ones are out of tune. The iPhone app insures that I have the tuner with me where ever I go.

I had a nice App on Iphone, called "Pano Tuner", and it was perfect, on the other smartphones the same app tuned not really good

Korg AW-LT100G Clip-On, mainly because of its AAA-battery. It's accurate and extremely quick.

Good old tuning folk.

Occasionally Boss tuner App on Android.

Yet more occasionally I need to get A or E or whatever from Pf, as they can't tune on the fly.

OK this morning this tuner is on my guitar . With 4 different various guitar tuners I already have I am right now trying to persuade myself that
this tuner is better and I should be positive that my money has not been wasted :)

OK what sweetner do you use GTR or ACU for classical guitar?
Should I use a sweetner in live performance with other people playing other instruments?
