Listening to ClareFM.ie this morning.

Heard a great tune…..interrupted by the Galway Races  Used Tunepal……..it’s called The Parting………got it from The Session.org. So much fun……….. listening and learning Irish Trad.

Thank you so much for the good you have done and are doing!

It is ironic, but one of my mates has proudly proclaimed she has never had a cell phone, computer, nor opened an email account. She is utterly fascinated with Tunepal

“I’m sure you’re getting emails every day saying how much folks love your tunepal site and iphone app. I have the app and LOVVVVVVVVVE it! I use it every day. Awesome awesomeawesome!

Getting a lot of use out of this app now. Everybody I have told so far is very impressed.”

It’s pure magic. Thanks a million for having made this diamond and share it with everyone. If there was a God, I’m quite sure that he would have you blessed !

I just wanted to thank you for the great idea and the great job you’ve done with Tunepal. It’s an excellent and very useful tool. Just what I whished for quite often.

I am really impressed with the app.  It was 100% correct in identifying tunes when I played them on flute or whistle.  Having worked in a previous life in ultrasonic testing of materials, I can appreciate some of the problems involved.
