I am learning to sing, but don't have the luxury to always be around someone who can correct my pitch. Is there an Android app that can tell me which frequency I'm singing at, e.g. C or F#, preferably in real-time?

I don't really think this is a useful question- a quick check on google play will give you more than five that will work. –  Dr Mayhem Dec 13 '12 at 23:34
@DrMayhem Maybe if you know what to google for. I tried several searches ("tone", "pitch", "frequency detection", "singing practice", ...) but didn't manage to find one. –  Anders Dec 14 '12 at 9:38
The search term you need is "tuner" :-) –  Dr Mayhem Dec 14 '12 at 9:51
Any guitar tuner or instrument tuner which accepts input from a microphone can be used for this purpose. –  Wheat Williams Dec 17 '12 at 17:04

Yes, there are various ones which will do this. I use DA Tuner, but any good tuner will do.

This one tells you the exact frequency of a note, the standard pitch it is nearest to, and indicates with colour when you hit the note dead on.
