Gibson-iPhone-AppWell, if you haven’t bit the bullet yet on a dedicated guitar app for your iPhone (or even if you have, really,) you might want to take a look at Gibson’s new offering.

Hey, it’s free, it’s good looking, and it’s loaded up with all the basics, including a tuner that supports multiple popular tunings, a tap metronome, a useful — if still somewhat limited — chord dictionary, and a library of lesson snippets.

I could do without the advertisement splash screen on boot-up, but other than that there’s a lot to love here at such an unbeatable price.

While I’m at it, I might mention that I’ve been using and loving the Peterson strobe tuner iPhone app –– iStroboSoft –– even if the name is terrible, and I still find myself making use of both the GuitarToolkit and iReadMusic; the latter being a great way to keep up on your guitar notation reading skills.

What about you? Got any favorite iPhone guitar apps?
