Description

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.

Editors' Notes

Always stay on beat.

Just perfect...

Piano man '84

A fantastic metronome... worthy of every musician and student owning.

If I were to offer one piece of advice, might sound nitpicky, but can there be an option to set the maximum tempo of 208 as found on traditional metronomes. It would also help if for irregular x/8 time signatures, if you could have the ability to tap the crotchet beat for any (2+x or 2+x+x), instead of the dotted crotchet beat. Seems kind of silly considering the start with essentially a crotchet stressed beat as opposed to a dotted crotchet.

Also is it possible to have the option to stick to traditional bpm's, as found on traditional metronomes?

This was the first app I ever bought, unrecognizable now from that iPhone 3 version. It’s the best. I use it every other day.
