    Most should be suitable. Simplest thing to do would be to check reviews of tuner apps online. Usually it's not worth paying for them, just find a free one. If it's free if it doesn't work oh well, you haven't wasted any money.

    I use one called gStrings on my S3 - has a full chromatic mode. I think I paid a couple of bucks for it after trying the freebie version. I'm happy with it.

    Thanks! Despite the cost, I like ClearTune the most.

    I've tried a few now, and I find Pitchlab to be the best one for my needs. It has a wealth of different visualization modes, of which only a few are really useful for a wind instrument, but particularly the strobe-like modes give very quick feedback.

    Edit: Best of all is that it seems to be ad-free, and doesn't need to access the Internet all the time to fetch ads.
    gString is pretty good, but the ads annoy me a bit.

    +1 on gStrings. It's what I use, first on an HTC Evo, now on a Samsung S4.

    Bach Stradivarius 43* (1974), Bach 3C Mouthpiece.
    Getzen 896 Eterna Flugelhorn (1974), Curry 3FL Mouthpiece.
    Plus a few other Bach, Getzen, Olds, Carol, and Besson horns.
