"A Killer Metronome for Free without ad!"@ (
"I'm a musician that relies on a metronome with a lot a customization. This is the best Metronome app I've used, and I've tried a dozen different ones."

Beat On - The best and most Advanced Metronome App for iOS built in with special training modes to improve the sense of rhythm and learn different music styles. Watch the instruction Video:

Beat On is based on the industrial standard MIDI technology. It is the most accurate metronome, and the Tempo of which can be corrected to two decimal places.

Beat On offers two unique training modes, with this function, it builds your rhythm faster and smarter: Accuracy Training and Speed Training.

The Accuracy Training Mode is to practice with a regular loop between Sound On and Sound Off. You can try to follow the beat in the tempo when the Sound is Off, then check if you are still in the right tempo when the sound is back on.

The Speed Training Mode has easier ways to build your speed of strumming, drumming or jamming other instruments. In this mode, Beat On automatically changes the Tempo in optional speed rate(BPM) and bars. You can also set the starting BPM and finishing BPM to practice from fast to slow or slow to fast, of course, you can practice in loop.

You can easily customize the time signatures (1~16/1, 1~16/2, 1~16/4, 1~16/8, 1~16/16) and subdivisions including whole note, half note, quarter note, eighth note, sixteenth note, thirty second note, sixty fourth note, triple notes and syncopated notes.

The accents of beats can also be customized to any position in a looping bar which includes Accent "f" (Yellow), Unaccented "p" (Grey) and Rest "Mute" (Black).

Besides hearing the beat tones and watching the beat sector on the screen, you can also See the beats in Flashlight and Feel the beats in Vibration(iPhone Only).

Poor support

There is a lot to like in this metronome app. You have several different beat styles, sounds, and an intuitive interface. The app is visually appealing more so than other metronome apps available. To a degree I feel bad about giving it a low rating. However, I have a couple of problems with the app and more so with support or the lack thereof. I purchases the full-featured version and the sound pack which is all that was presented for an in-app purchase. I have not been able to get the vibration mode to work - the slider is not active and multiple messages to the developers have been unanswered. I deleted the app on the phone thinking that perhaps a reinstall would have some value - and the sound pack went away requiring me to repurchase, which I did not do.

Best metronome but will not work with newest os

This is by far the best metronome app I have encountered. I give it full stars because of the quality despite the fact I cannot use it anymore. I paid for the full version and saddened that they have not updated the app, but I hope things will change in the near future.

Great metronome app! Recommended!

Great free app metronome out there. I've used SilverDial metronome app before, loved it. Now Beat On is just as good. I'm glad I ran into this metronome app. Works perfectly especially the set list feature is what I needed most. Beat On so far has beaten a lot of paid apps on iTunes like pro metronome, real metronome, tempo advance, etc.
