Tempo - Metronome with Setlists

By Frozen Ape Pte. Ltd.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Tempo is the bestselling and most accurate metronome on the App Store. Featured as "New and Noteworthy" and "Staff Favorite" by Apple on the main iTunes landing page. Same price as upgrading a free alternative. If you're going to demo free apps, why not give Tempo Lite a try?

Ever since its release, Tempo has been consistently in the top 100 of the Music category in over 30 countries, and the top paid metronome app in most countries. Tempo's engine is written from the ground up for high accuracy and stability. It keeps going even in device lock mode, making it a useful aid for live drumming.

Tempo features an innovative interface that morphs between modes that each presents a different combination of functionalities optimized for the task at hand. Five modes are available on the iPhone: Basic, Preset, Setlist, Practice and Gig. On the iPad, Preset, Gig and Complete modes are available, the last providing access to all controls.

Bye Bye "Boss" and "Tama Rhythm Watch"

I love this app! I've tried every metronome out there and always come back to this one. It's so simple and solid! ONLY THING I WOULD CHANGE... Please make it where we can upload our own sound. Then it would be perfection. I play on stage at a church with 30,000+ members and I must have a reliable click... This is it! Don't fall for all the other apps with tons of "options". This one just works.... So well I take its for granted at times ;)

Excellent app!

I use Tempo just about every time I practice. The interface is very simple and intuitive. Perhaps the best feature is the ability to tap a list of tempos to select one--largo or moderato or allegretto, say--rather than having to cycle laboriously up or down through various bpm settings. An excellent choice if you need a metronome app!

Right on Time

Seems like as soon as I think of having a feature it's either already built in, or comes out in the next update. Great work team! Looking forward to the Apple Watch add on.
