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.

Perfect for drummers.
I am a drummer and I use Tempos exclusively as my gig metronome. You can build your set list, make any changes to the feel/tempo/accents in less than 5 seconds, re order songs quickly, toggle set lists and copy any songs from one set list to another. Gig mode allows you to move from song to song with one touch, AND if you're playing with your band and you feel that the tempo could be a little faster or slower, you can change the tempo on the fly and the click resumes without "rebooting" at a weird place. Start and stop is instantaneous, no lag. It has minimum battery drain even on my 2 year old iPod touch with a fatigued battery. It's perfect.
This is a great app with a fantastic feature set. But there is one feature that would significantly benefit the app: different pitches for strong and weak beats. Ideally, we'd be able to control the volume of strong and weak beats, as well. But pitch differentiation would be a huge win that would make this an immediate five star rating for me. Actually, I would pay significantly more for this feature. Just something to think about for the developers. Great work, though. I've bought all the apps this company makes just to support the devs.
One of the best metronome apps out there. Extremely customizable yet it functions simply and clearly. I especially appreciate the visual pendulum. Few metronome apps have this, and most that do are lacking in other ways. Only one suggestion: please make the area to "tap" bigger, and separate it from the tempo display. As it stands, it's hard to read the changing numbers under one's tapping finger. Other than that, an outstanding app.
