Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


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.

Customer Reviews

Outperforms the iOS it's running on

I play drums for worship at a medium size church. I was heading down the highly populated road of worship drummers devoid of all situational awareness when I started using tempo about 8 months ago. I like things broken down for simplicity, but despise excessive detail that makes me forget what I was doing to begin with.

Tempo, being my first metronome, has been a very solid tool. All without shotgunning a graduate level education of their product down my brains. The song and setlist navigation is simple and convenient. I save all new songs to a "Library" setlist, which enables simple and quick modifications to our weekly run-sheets.
I use the display on my iPhone and iPad to change songs, which from all of my 8 months of learning to stay in time with a wood block, is not the preferred technique because I sweat and shake a lot. Consider a remote device for that reason if you have similar vitamin deficiencies!
All in all, I've tried "Metronome" and another app that has a click track type creation that you can try and put together for yourself and threw in the towel on that craziness after about 4 hours of confusion. In my "layman" opinion, the other apps I tried didn't live up to their self image.
Thanks, and sorry you had to read all that! God bless!

Tempo = Best

Best metronome out there. Tons of features including countdown timer, bar count, odd time signatures, customizable click sounds, and very editable/flexible set lists. I especially like the ability to display JUST the "dots" for use during a gig. Keeps the screen simple and easy to read on the fly. The ONLY thing missing is a training mode where the click would mute at random or at some set interval to help train timing. I have to use another app for that but if they would add that feature you'd never have to go anywhere! Well, one more wish list: A BPM analyzer that will give the current BPM coming through the mic in real time. That would be awesome! can't go wrong with Tempo.


One of the best metronome apps out there. Extremely customizable yet it functions simply and clearly. I especially appreciate the visual pendulum. Few metronome apps have this, and most that do are lacking in other ways. Only one suggestion: please make the area to "tap" bigger, and separate it from the tempo display. As it stands, it's hard to read the changing numbers under one's tapping finger. Other than that, an outstanding app.
