Planet Waves Guitar Tools (CNET 100: iPhone Apps)
When I'm not placating my toddler with Elmo and Martha the Talking Dog apps, I'm desperately attempting to hold on to any vestiges of coolness by practicing on my guitar. I'm no rockstar, but what modest skills I've managed to develop I owe to a combination of YouTube guitar lessons and apps like Planet Waves Guitar tools, which let you quickly look up scales, chords, tunings, and other information--quick and easy.I've detailed some of my favorite guitar apps in previous CNET posts, but Guitar Tools from Planet Waves is one of the best comprehensive guitar apps you'll find (GuitarToolkit by Agile Partners is another). It offers intuitive chord and scale dictionaries, a metronome, string tuner, and even provides listings for local stores and instructors. No matter how good a guitarist you think you are, you'll find something useful here.
