Ratings and Reviews
Good deal, but has issues
First of all, I want to say that for 99¢, you are NOT getting ripped off. As a semi-professional musician, I need a metronome that works well. Not only is this one of the best metronome apps available, but it's only 99¢. I particularly love that you can set up beats other than 4/4 quarter notes, and it allows you to tap the tempo you're looking for, which is helpful both in music performance and in music composition.
I do, however, want to see a couple of things changed. First of all, the app is complicated and can be difficult to use. The navigation is strange and, although there is a help button, there are a lot of things that are difficult to understand, even with the "help" feature. I also wish you could create a custom beat. What I mean is that all of the beats are pre-set. I wish that you had the option of changing, say, a quarter note to an eighth note and an eighth rest, but keep the others as quarter notes. Instead, you have to choose whether you want eighth notes OR quarter notes. You can't combine the two.
Overall, this is a great deal for 99¢, but it's not perfect. I'd really love to see the feature for custom beats, as it would help me get the rhythm in my head before I play a piece, which was one of the main reasons I picked this app over others.
Needs VOLUME!!! Hard to use with the most quiet of practice pads.
Thank you for review.
Added volume function.
Please update and try it.
