Thanks to everyone who's helped make SilverDial a success.
We have a few new features for you based on user feedback and requests.

- Swipe up/down to change folders
- Swipe left/right to change songs
- You can turn this feature off in the Settings
• New Practice Timer
- Counts down from any time you want (up to 100 minutes)
- Flashes when it's done, but doesn't interrupt the metronome
- Turn it off in the Settings if you don't care to see it
• Beat Flash now flashes red on down beats when the Downbeat Accent is on. Other beats still flash white.
• Bug fixes
Great app, the tempo will go way up where you want. Won't just stop at 208 like most apps.
Two things I would change, one the dot on the dial, should be lighted. Two, the band around the dial should be lighted too.
I use this app in low light, practicing scales. It would be great for better visual reference of the controls. Maybe contrasting colors.
The timer is a great idea, while practicing, it is nice to see a countdown while playing the scales, among other things.
I can see using this app for a long time, it would be nice for a better visual interface. In other words, more colors. Still as it is, great app.
All you need
This app is awesome!! My drum teacher tried to talk me into buying a $100 metronome that doesn't do half as much as this app. I showed him this app and he was way impressed. The sub division of time that this app provides was just what I needed to dial in my time in between time. It is incredibly helpful for learning and experimenting with time and fills. It is a slick looking app with all the capability. I usually don't leave comments but this app deserves it its great for learning and even impressed my highly experienced old school teacher. And it's free!! It's all you need!
This is THE BEST metronome app out there. It has every desirable feature, is extremely easy to use, and is very well thought out. The dial is very simple and responsive unlike most free and paid metronome apps on the apple store. The subdivisions are extremely helpful, the noises are quite pleasant, the volume control is very good, and the timer is a noce addition to it all. I never write reviews for apps but I feel that this app has exceeded all others out there. This app has helped me out a lot! Thank you so much!!!
