Pro Metronome - The best metronome app. Period.
Featured in Apple's WWDC 2014 showcase "Apps We Can't Live Without."
Pro Metronome is a powerful tool that helps you master both daily practice and stage performance. It has redefined how more than 4 million people sync to a beat.
The free version is packed with features like the newly designed time signature interface – customized it any way you want. 13 time-keeping styles let you choose beat sounds that work for you – even a counting voice. With RTP (Real-Time Playback) technology, it's more precise than a traditional mechanical metronome.
Pro Metronome is all about customization – change beat sounds, accents, and even choose from 4 different beat volume levels ("f", "mf", "p" and "mute.") With the Pro Version, access subdivisions, polyrhythm settings, and create complex patterns with triplets, dotted notes, and non-standard time signatures.
The app supports several ways to experience beats. All versions have sound, but upgrading to Pro enables Visual, Flash, Vibrate and Airplay Modes. Visual and Vibrate Modes are great when you're playing loud instruments or when you need to FEEL the beat. Flash Mode uses the device's camera flash to help your whole band sync up easily. You can even beam the metronome to a projector or Apple TV using Airplay Mode!
But Pro Metronome doesn't just help you keep time, it also helps you train. Many musicians, especially drummers, are looking for some way to help themselves keep a steadier beat. So Pro Metronome built the Rhythm Trainer - it plays one bar of beats, then mutes the next, letting you check how steady your timing really is. Increase mute time as you get better and soon you'll be closer to having perfect timing. It's a simple idea not found in any other app, one that lots of people have requested to increase their stamina and precision.
Pro Metronome supports many other features: polyrhythm mode to help drummers hear and visualize complex, interlocking beat patterns; background play mode; in-app volume adjust; even saving song/tempo playlists that you can share with friends. It's a powerful, elegant app that is easy for anyone to get started with, and useful for any musician. So pick it up and sync to your own beat today!

What's New in Version 3.12.1
[(3.12.1) Hot fix the bug in Stage Mode, which caused the playlist cannot be scrolled more than two pages]
Thank you guys for supporting us. We've updated Pro Metronome to include some pretty awesome new features. These include:
1. "Stage Mode"
The indispensable companion for performing musicians. The Stage Mode feature is informed by songs or tempos compiled in the Playlist. Made specifically with drummers in mind, Stage Mode aids the performing musician who may need reference to the tempo of the next song. If you don't necessarily need a click for the whole song, the 'Auto Stop' feature will stop the metronome automatically after playing a measure of bars that you determine.
2. Added "Practice Mode"
Practice Mode allows you to programme automatic tempo change to suit your practice regime.
3. Changed "Volume Control" feature
The volume button has been moved to Settings. Its place at the bottom of the home screen has been replaced by the aforementioned Practice Mode.
4. Fixed Voice Counting
In this version, Pro Metronome now provides additional ways to measure beats. Now the triple division ( one an de, two an de...) and 4th division (one e an da, two e an da...)
5. Fixed other minor bugs
Enjoy! As always, if you have any comments, suggestions or questions, don't hesitate to let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org

Leaves nothing to be desired
This is a great app! I rarely write reviews, but I felt I really had to give a positive word to these developers... This metronome app is well-designed and organized, easy to use and full of settings which have made integrating it into my practice simple and highly productive. I'm a doctoral student in music and I can truly say that there's nothing I've ever wished a metronome could do that this app doesn't. One of my favorite functions is the timer integrated into the program (it's really important not to stay focused on one task for too long!). I've tried a few other metronome apps and what I found didn't compare. I eventually upgraded to the Pro version, but even the free app is a great tool.
It's like a christmas present
Along with the person before me, I never write reviews but this is the best metronome app ever.
One suggestion is with the auto stop if instead of completely stopping it would go to the next set tempo
unless there already is that setting and I just haven't found it yet.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any better!
I've had this app for awhile now and can't believe how they keep improving it. I thought it was great a couple years ago. Wish every company was as dedicated to their products as what this one is. Thank you so much.
