Icelandic Guitar Tuner a Hit in Nokia’s Ovi Store

Tunerific, a guitar tuner designed by Icelandic computer scientist Gudmundur Freyr Jónasson, has proven a hit in Finnish mobile giant Nokia’s new Ovi webstore. Tunerific is a software solution enabling users to tune their guitars through their mobile phones.

Nokia’s Ovi store has carried the guitar tuner since summer 2009 and the touch-phone version of Tunerific has since become the most popular application in the store. Since July this year, Tunerific has spread to 134 countries, a press release states.

Jónasson designed Tunerific in relation to his master’s project at the University of Iceland and after graduation he founded the innovative company Hugvakinn. The project was sponsored by Rannís (the Icelandic Center for Research) and the Innovation Center Iceland.

The company’s next steps are to expand further into the market, which includes collaboration with the Sony Ericsson PlayNow store, and the introduction of new applications, for example a ukulele tuner and ukulele chords, which will soon be available in the Ovi store.
