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.

I use this all the time for practicing guitar, not just for steady pace for chord changes, picking, etc but just as an approximate measure count when just trying to get repetition.
With both the guitar & horn it's also a great help to get objective feedback on my ability to speed up the pace with a passage as I get better.
Another neat trick that I'll need another for (my wife's) I will start 2 metronomes at once to get a better feel for how, for example, eighth notes & triplets sound together - helpful when another orchestra section is playing something different.
Using this app also increases my ability to use my ear for my surrounding while playing, to better play with others during rehearsals or performances.
Finally, this has many options, & for an amateur like me it's perfect. My ability to listen and play to what I hear, i think essential for anyone who wants to play with others, absolutely improves with this.
Perfect - But Please!
This app has been solid for years but there is one thing that could really put it over top. Please make it possible to search through set lists and find the individual song names not just the name of the set. I have hundreds of songs saved in set lists and I would love to be able to find songs and tempos by simply searching.
I'd never have a reason to leave this app :)
Great app, but..
The only complaint that I have is that my app has been glitching recently, when I go to turn up the volume, tempo changes and the screen turns off, it does that two or three times then stops. Not sure if it's just me or if other people are having similar issues. Everything else works fine.
