Tempo is A very reliable and fairly versatile metronome.
Simple and easy to use
by dianeDrums on 2019/11/14 21:23
Rehearsing using ear buds and the click and a set list is a great way to improve your time and get ready for the studio. I have used it on stage until I learned to feel the count off. Great tool
I want the black icon :(
by jlb2112 on 2019/11/12 14:43
I tried the free version and then bought the full version- didn’t upgrade, purchased and downloaded the full version. But I want the black icon. Any help?
Love It
by ScrewTheNicknameRequirement on 2019/11/10 14:41
Versatile & reliable, love the set list feature & drum sets option. I use this for personal practice & teaching students.
Very Useful App but needs iCloud set list syncing
by Cosmic Circuit on 2019/10/30 00:28
I use this app very frequently and it is designed very well and useful for rehearsing and calling up songs quickly. I wanted to use this on multiple devices (such as iPad) but my setlists and songs were input on the iPhone. While the setlists can be emailed and imported, that is not very convenient for a person who switches device frequently and needs to keep the lists synced between devices. I would love to see iCloud syncing of the lists in future updates.
Used to be great
by ajessiew on 2019/10/18 22:31
Until about a year ago and could tap and hold and move the metronome up 10. Now this works about 50% of the time. The rest of the time it wildly moves past the next 10 and keeps going to either the highest tempo or lowest tempo. Doesn’t stop on the ten.
Great app!
by kdndof on 2019/10/17 15:41
It would be great to be able to change/manipulate the subdivisions on a beat-by-beat basis (i.e. 2nd partial of triplet beat 1, 3rd partial beat 2, etc.). Fantastic app!
Too complicated
by djrihd Guy on 2019/10/16 16:57
Too complicated. Difficult to navigate.
Perfect metronome
by ScottBassMan on 2019/10/15 19:56
Good stuff
Flat out great
by Sheath of Myelin on 2019/09/30 20:10
I’ve used Tempo for years, and it only keeps getting better. More and more features get added - things I didn’t even think I wanted but are really useful! And the most important part, the metronome, works flawlessly. I’ve never had a complaint!
Great app for a bandleader
by Sweet Old Bill on 2019/09/19 20:53
Great app to help keep your band on tempo. Easy to use in rehearsal and at the gig.
Wonderful
by Paul Sheftel on 2019/09/11 20:44
Great metronome. Many valuable features.
Best tempo app. Hands down.
by AceLasko on 2019/09/08 12:10
Used this for years. It clicks. Very customizable. Make it your own.
Excellent metronome
by PercTeacher on 2019/09/07 20:32
I use this every day with my students and my own practicing. I think this is an excellent metronome
The best!
by quecutie on 2019/09/04 00:59
My absolute favorite metronome, ever!!!
Excellent!
by Littleanimalcollector on 2019/09/02 19:52
This app is excellent. I just started playing drums a few months ago and this is perfect. I gave it 4 stars because there is a few things Frozen Ape could do to make it better. First: the timer can’t be started over once it is started. You have to wait for it to run out. Second: this isn’t really anything wrong with the app, it’s more that it would be nice to be able to do. It would be great if you could pick the background you want at the beginning and then, whatever ones you didn’t pick, you would have to purchase later. Overall, this is a great app for my purposes and I would definitely recommend to other musicians, especially drummers.
My thought
by beedare on 2019/08/21 03:26
I’ve enjoyed it so far. Quick to understand and get started. Cool.
Worth it
by 7 River 7 on 2019/08/07 02:27
So many easy to use features.
Great met!
by jeffzim47 on 2019/07/13 19:47
Use it during marching band rehearsals to check tempos and also before contests when I don’t have a dr beat with me. Also recommend this one first to my students!
Tempo
by claybun on 2019/07/11 18:18
I find the tempo app a serious tool for my practice regiment. Super awesome for working on creating solid grooves and solos. This app is user friendly!
Super helpful metronome aid
by Random Brooklyn Guy on 2019/07/06 15:14
This is a great tool to have in my pocket instead of relying on my instincts and heart beat to keep time ; )
Indispensable, none like it
by motojesus on 2019/06/20 03:56
Used it on my android for years, recently upgraded to an iPhone and it is an unbelievable upgrade, are use this for practice and for giving for everything, I love it

Easy to learn how to use and very user friendly.
Tap Feature
by PGM211 on 2019/05/28 13:30
I like the App the one feature that could be improved is the Tap feature which is used to try and identify the tempo of a song or beat. It is a little difficult. A possible improvement would be if there was a feature that could hear 2-3 bars and then just move to that tempo the way the song identifying app heard a song and named it for you.

It’s perfect
F*cking insane
by Homosapien person on 2019/04/29 00:40
Actaully awesome app Has been serving me well for 2 years
iPhone app is great! iPad version is a pain!
by HamndChs on 2019/04/27 19:30
Using this on my iPhone is a great experience. But the stupid wheel to quickly change the tempo on the iPad version is horrible! It’s so inaccurate and difficult to use. I can usually get within about 10-15 bbm with the wheel but then I have to use the arrows to get the actual tempo I want. If I keep trying to use the wheel to get the right tempo it either won’t change the tempo when spinning it or it will go way past the number I want.
Good Metronome!
by fiddleflake on 2019/04/25 18:38
Simple to use. Has way more functions than I’ll ever need. Loud enough too.
Fantastic; get this app!
by ecdolive on 2019/04/25 16:57
Pretty sure I first got this app around 9 years ago or so when I was playing a lot of shows, and I remember it as being a pretty good basic metronome back then. The last few years I’ve been out of the loop but recently started up again and wow this app has come a long way! Love the modes and the ability to quickly and easily create setlists, as well as customize just about any aspect you want: the look, the sound, and many other options like being able to wave your hand over the phone to advance to the next song. Get this app!
I like it
by Hirezaudio on 2019/04/25 13:51
It works well. My drummer uses it in my band and we practice and sometimes play with the click. It would be amazing if you could import your own sounds, program it with the AppleScript, and be able to hook it up to Midi.
Tempo metronome
by bubbyesq on 2019/04/21 21:07
Once I get to the correct setting, it works well. Getting to the right setting often takes a while. I have hearing aids, and they work on blue tooth with Tempo. It’s great when I’m practicing alone.
Awesome
by pimpleffskeff on 2019/04/17 04:57
I’ve had this since my 1st generation iPhone. Love this metronome!
Does what you need
by danfran440 on 2019/04/16 18:58
What’s not to like here? Good sounds, flexible meter settings, accurate (of course). And it’s there whenever you need it.
Best Metronome for Live Playing Situations
by tlsm2 on 2019/04/11 18:07
I’ve been using Tempo for live concerts for 5 yrs. It’s never crashed on me. The iPad version is perfect for me because I play drums and run Tempo. The buttons are nice and big. Also, I love the ability to create several set lists at once. This makes batch processing tempos for set lists a breeze.
Tempo

It’s quite versatile and helpful for an amateur jazz drummer.

I have gotten so much better and faster with this metronome.
Fantastic!
by ThatKaleoGuy on 2019/03/24 01:00
Has all the features you could want, best metronome app I've seen
The Standard
by Joser2112 on 2019/03/23 13:16
I’ve downloaded and purchased most metronomes on iOS, this is the standard. Other apps may have a niche use but for 99 out of 100 uses, I turn to this Tempo. As a owner of the classic stand alone metronomes (dr. Beat, beatlab, rhythm watch) they all collect dust now. This is the metronome I have recommended to my students for years. Ease of use, functionality and price set Tempo, as I said, as the standard bearer. Update 3-23-19 Still the best, no contest.
Speed up/slow down function is terrible
by pppppopppplopl on 2019/03/22 22:01
When I hold down the speed up or slow down button the tempo changes extremely fast and it’s very annoying.
ollie review
by oliver J. Dragon on 2019/03/22 18:04
I wish that we had an app such as this when I was a kid learning piano & clarinet & trying to keep time to a metronome that sometimes got off kilter!
Almost perfect
by purefires on 2019/03/20 16:23
The controls could be more intuitive. I create many sets with differences songs. It’s tough to create a new set. And adding a song from an old set requires hitting the button “Add,” which sounds like it shouldn’t be a big deal. The problem, I’ve already tapped the song. It’s controls seem nice for a desktop experience and could be improved for a touch experience.
Best Metronome in the AppStore
by ScoKirk on 2019/03/20 11:33
This is the best metronome app in the App Store. The setlist function works great and is just what you need on gigs. Lots of other great functions all very logically laid out in a clean interface. I’ve tried a bunch of others, but this is the one I use everyday.
Great little app - reliable, flexible and a powerful aid to advancing your musical skills!
by jpamjpat on 2019/03/19 21:42
Easy to use, solid and versatile!
Great!
by Lightin' in a Bottle on 2019/03/16 17:16
the only metronome i use...... it’s a perfect tool
Great Metronome
by Molly the Boxer on 2019/03/11 15:43
I’ve been using this metronome daily for any time I practice. The design is sleek and modern, with an easily navigable interface. The addition of the tuner is an amazing bonus. The level of depth you can go into for time signatures, tempi, and division of the beat is also above standard; however I just wish there were a few more options on that regard. Otherwise, this app is well worth a purchase for a musician of any level.
Tempo thoughts
by Deserts dime on 2019/03/11 02:27
Tempo can be buggy. Sometimes it won’t set and scrolls past tempo your trying to input. Overall great app. Would be nice if you could set the metronome click to the key of song your practicing.
Perfect Metronome
by Anon Instrumentalist on 2019/03/10 22:51
I’ve been using this app for over 12 years now on a daily basis. It has beautiful design, excellent sounds, every subdivision and tempo map I could ever need, and every feature they add makes the experience even better. I have never once been disappointed by this app. It is perfect and indispensable and I plan on using it for the rest of my life lol.
Mostly Great
by Tyyy@98 on 2019/03/10 19:54
...tap function seems to be under par.
I Recommend this app.
by Mr.pimptastic on 2019/03/09 09:29
I am a music student (studying at SBCC). I use this app literally every single day. If you are looking for an app that will serve it’s purpose. This is it.
Completely in accessible with voiceover
by Anglpz on 2019/03/06 07:43
The title of my review says it all. As a totally blind iPhone user using voiceover, I cannot use this app at all. There are too many unlabeled buttons, and none of the swipe gestures that I am accustomed to using with voiceover work while using this app. Others have rated this app very highly, and I guess it is a great app. But for those of us using voiceover who cannot see the screen, it is completely useless.
Wonderful! Consistent
by The only nickname that on 2019/02/25 16:36
Great app. Been using it for a couple years now
Ejercicios de libro o video + metrónomo de fondo= Éxito seguro!
by Powerman_3000 on 2019/02/23 23:53
Excelente App..sumamente funcional para quienes estamos empezando. Muy útil a la hora de familiarizarnos con el metrónomo mientras seguimos los ejercicios de los libros o videos que estemos consultando.
Perfect
by Ronnie Kay on 2019/02/22 19:33
I use this metronome daily and have ever since Subdivide disappeared during an iOS update. I have no complaints and it works perfectly. That is all that anyone needs to know...
Still My Favorite Metronome App
by jimdrum66 on 2019/01/23 16:00
As a percussionist, I collect metronomes and metronome apps. There are some great ones out there and some not-so-great ones out there. I really like Frozen Ape’s, Tempo metronome the best for a no-nonsense, reliable, easy to use app that gets the job done exceptionally well. The simplicity of the app is brilliant, because it also has depth. Tempo 2 is more difficult to use, but may also have more “power”, but for most uses Tempo gets the job done exceptionally well. Every time I get a new metronome, I use it for awhile to see how I like it. So far, I keep coming back to Tempo. Also, Frozen Ape actually will occasionally send out updates to fix bugs or simplify a process. Great Job!
Best metronome on the App Store
by <-Asmodeus-> on 2019/01/21 20:22
Well worth every penny. I use this one a lot. It is both versatile and simple which is usually a hard balance to strike, but this metronome is pretty much perfect.
Can’t ask for more
by Glen (aka) The One on 2019/01/14 19:32
Great tool to have. Couldn’t be happier with a mobile all metronome. I’m a professional and I highly recommend it.
Love it!
by Trays7940 on 2019/01/14 19:10
Love this app! Does exactly what it is suppose to do plus I love the clock or countdown for practicing...
Glitch
by blue beary on 2019/01/08 00:40
This app looks nice, but the vibration and audio seem to get out of sync, and then it will recover, but it is a bit disconcerting.
God tier metronome
by morc_ on 2018/12/31 01:27
Sexy interface
iPad Split Screen please?
by cisum13579 on 2018/12/28 17:41
I would like to read my charts while using the metronome app like other apps
Tempo is great
by Quantum326 on 2018/12/23 18:12
A very versatile program. I use it to learn rhythm and words of choir music and as a one second clock for lowering blood pressure with an 11 second breath cycle. Of course you have to climb a few learning curves. I can listen optionally through my hearing aids so march to a “different drummer”. 😄
Great
by Skidzzzzzz on 2018/12/17 00:25
Always works well and have never had it freeze. Gave it 4 stars because I would love some drum sounds instead of just the normal beeping sounds.
No good
by nevikkiven on 2018/12/04 02:57
Said vibration mode, no vibration.
Very solid option
by mills29 on 2018/12/03 02:54
Love the app, as a cycling instructor, it’s indispensable — I just wish the play button for the metronome was instant
Get it now!

You need it. Get it now. Don’t ever practice without one!

Great app, very consistent, pretty straightforward to use!
Amazing Companion for Musicians!
by KingCos19 on 2018/11/04 23:12
This has saved me (a percussionist, ensemble leader, and music enthusiast—whatever that means) a countless number of times! Be it “I need to know the tempo in 5/7” or be it “I am way too slow, what was that tempo again?”... amazing. Must have!
Please bring back classic blue theme!
by Mcflopper on 2018/11/03 15:59
My only issue in the update is the loss of the classic blue theme! Other than that it’s my favorite one and only metronome app, and I’ve tried most of them. But please bring back the classic blue theme!
Decent
by JasonCMower on 2018/10/31 00:54
If the Apple Watch version had the time tracker feature that the iPhone version has, and did haptics when the watch was on silent mode, it would get 5 stars.
Solid App
by Drms4lyfe on 2018/10/29 17:51
Bought this app years ago for live gigs. Very useful app. Even has a set list option so that you can put a set list in it with the corresponding tempos. Also has an incorporated tuning fork in the app which is good for those last minute “tune ups” should you need it.
Strong Battery drain for due background process
by Angstroms on 2018/10/21 19:03
Looks to be bug currently with errant background process which burns your battery. Also always seeks a connection when it running
The App I Was Hoping To Find
by BillKoep on 2018/10/21 15:43
I’m the drummer in a band that tends to start songs off tempo at times. I was searching Amazon for a device designed for drummers in live performance when I read in a review that there were better apps for iOS than any of the hardware units. Tempo came up when I checked the App Store, and based on the reviews I bought the full version. After spending some time getting comfortable with the interface I was able to setup a full 3 set performance list that flashes the first 10 bars of the selected song at the correct tempo to get us started. It then advances to the next song and waits for me to start it when I am ready. It is simple to use and easy to see. This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s the best $2.99 I have ever spent. Highly recommended!
???
by wereallsearching on 2018/10/13 17:39
All I want to do is be able to tap on the screen to figure out what tempo a certain song is in but this app makes it so complicated and difficult to navigate. Want my money back
So good!
by eternity0719 on 2018/10/09 08:52
So good. But, 실행시키지 않았는데 메트로놈 소리가 수시로 나서 Siri 그것을 끄니까 괜찮네요. ^^;
Set list feature
by Weez007 on 2018/10/04 13:35
There are many apps out there, so if all you need is a basic metronome, take your pick. This adds the extra features key to any gigging musician; most notably the ability to not only store preset song tempos, but arrange them into set lists. Add to that things like the ability to manually tap the tempo to set it, ability to change the visual features of the timekeeper, multiple time signatures to choose from, etc., it’s a solid app. One star off for intuitive interface: You have to get used to how to get around the app to do things, but once you tinker around, you’ll get the hang of it.
Reliable, easy to use, accurate metronome
by markcrego on 2018/10/01 17:51
Works well every time.
Good, but not great
by hippo_momo on 2018/09/27 13:42
It’s a great app but I wish there was a version of this for the pc
This was my go-to metronome....
by PuniRocker on 2018/09/25 15:53
And then a glitch started. When pressing the tempo up or down button and holding it shifts the tempo by 10’s, how wet randomly it will glitch out and increase or decrease tempo to maximum or minimum and any adjustment of tempo takes you to max or min. Only way to reset the glitch is to restart the app. This was on my iPhone 6 and now the same bug on my iPhone XS. I emailed support a long time ago and still have not heard back. I loved this app but now it is literally unusable in a professional setting.
Super useful and accurate
by masterD_1 on 2018/09/06 00:07
App is on point, does what it is supposed to do and with a great user interface
Well Done!
by 1tdrums on 2018/08/12 16:33
I use this metronome daily. Perfect for my every need both while giving drum lessons and playing professionally!
Works great but pan needs to be fixed
by dadbodwastaken on 2018/08/06 21:20
Have used this app for about five years as click for worship. Love it BUT the pan is not working as well as it used to. Sometimes even when it is set to 100% pan right or left it bleeds into other side and obviously not desired. It’s not always possible to 0 out and reset the pan in the middle of a song🧐😱
VIBRATION mode not working with iPhone 8
by Vartagh on 2018/07/26 00:49
The vibration mode does not work with IPhone 8, from 109 bpm and up the IPhone vibrates only in the 1 and in the 3. With my iPhone 7 was working smothly. PLEASE FIX.
No control over timing
by OpraLvr on 2018/07/23 19:39
I used to love this app. Now, after wasting much time to change the configuration, I give up. Why is a time like 6/8 only permitted to be set with dotted quarter, triplets or 2 eighths. I am searching for something where it is I who decides not the programmer!!
The best metronome.
by clyderator on 2018/07/22 15:20
Easy to use. Never glitches. My favorite. It also works as a tuner in a pinch. I&#39;ve tried many metronome apps on my smart phone, and this one is by far the best.
Keeps band together
by Timmy 3P on 2018/07/20 20:40
Love it use it all the time! As a drummer helps keep everyone from rushing
Great app!
by MantisT'boggan on 2018/07/18 15:15
I use this all the time live and in the practice room. I recommend it to all my serious students. I love the odd time signature feature and the set list; it makes it easy to program my sets. Get this app!
Must Have
by TimW.Evans on 2018/07/10 19:26
As a drummer, I have been using Frozen Ape Tempo apps in some capacity for years now. The Tempo Advance app is great, and I loved always having it on my phone but I didn&#39;t use it live. Once this version came along, the streamlined UI and easy set list features really captured me and I&#39;ve totally replaced my Tama Rhythm Watch live. I prefer this over the Advanced version, because in a live setting I like having less to accidentally mess up. You really don&#39;t ever need a standalone metronome ever again and not in a &#34;I can live with this since it&#39;s so convenient&#34; kind of way--this product is actually much better than physical metronomes that cost up to 140 dollars.
Flexible, reliable, useful
by vcmjr on 2018/07/04 00:51
The title says it all. I don’t use one feature that might be useful for professional groups — the possibility of assigning a name to a particular selection of time signature and tempo, thereby having one tap selection of tempo among a group of tempos to be used in a single performance.
Reliable metronome; straightforward layout
by Cpt. Bisquick on 2018/06/29 14:02
My preferred metronome
Tap needs tweaking
by JMicLS on 2018/06/28 16:31
Great app overall, but there are a few bugs. One is the tap doesn’t really seem to work anymore (though in previous versions it did), and another is it sometimes freezes in rapid tempo advance when your trying to advance by 10 (by holding the tempo up button down) Otherwise, I use this app a lot!
Tempo
by Squad110 on 2018/06/27 21:20
This app is amazing. I recommend it to all!
Hard to use
by Mojo Workin on 2018/06/22 04:46
Swing and triplets are bad
Excellent product
by SJChannel on 2018/06/16 18:59
I’ve been using Tempo for several years and have been very satisfied with it. It’s extremely flexible and has been 100% reliable. I recommend it.
Unsteady time, used to love.
by Nick, the name. on 2018/06/01 14:46
I’ve used this app for years with no problems but for the last three months or so there’s been an issue where the metronome will slow down for a beat, or drop a beat. And no, I’m not talking about the coaching mode where the silent beat is a feature. I still use it when my physical metronome is missing but it’s so frustrating to have this great app squandered.
Wow
by langevin 5116 on 2018/05/08 18:51
This is superb and is the best I have used. The vibration function kills and is helpful. No bugs and easy to operate.
Well designed

You can tell that the developers use this app themselves, or at least work very closely with users. It’s easy to do the sorts of things you need to do all the time, like changing the beat or increasing the tempo or changing the accents on the beats. It’s intuitive to use and does everything I would want a metronome to do.
Great On-The-Go Metronome
by Drummer & Fan on 2018/04/28 22:21
Good, simple metronome to always have with you. As a drummer, I like a more complex unit for practice, but for the money and convenience, you can hardly go wrong with this purchase!
Great App
by MarkT-in-Mukilteo on 2018/02/04 16:46
I use this all the time for practicing guitar, not just for steady pace for chord changes, picking, etc but just as an approximate measure count when just trying to get repetition. With both the guitar &amp; horn it&#39;s also a great help to get objective feedback on my ability to speed up the pace with a passage as I get better. Another neat trick that I&#39;ll need another for (my wife&#39;s) I will start 2 metronomes at once to get a better feel for how, for example, eighth notes &amp; triplets sound together - helpful when another orchestra section is playing something different. Using this app also increases my ability to use my ear for my surrounding while playing, to better play with others during rehearsals or performances. Finally, this has many options, &amp; for an amateur like me it&#39;s perfect. My ability to listen and play to what I hear, i think essential for anyone who wants to play with others, absolutely improves with this.
Amazing
by QuarterNotes on 2018/01/25 18:33
This app works wonderfully. I used it not only as a standard metronome, but also to help myself learn three against four rhythms as well as master the syncopation in a Gershwin piece I&#39;m learning, using the different time signatures and the different levels of accent. The ability to select exactly which beats to accent (and/or be silent) as well the different note values is invaluable to me, and has really helped me overcome my difficulties with rhythm. The interface is easy to work with, and I love the feature which allows you to tap out the desired tempo. Everything needed is right at your fingertips; it is not hard at all to make any sort of adjustment to the settings, major or minor. (Also, fiddling with the background colors is fun!) This app is the best metronome I have ever used, and I would definitely recommend it.
Still My Favorite Metronome App
by jimdrum66 on 2019/01/23 16:00
As a percussionist, I collect metronomes and metronome apps. There are some great ones out there and some not-so-great ones out there. I really like Frozen Ape’s, Tempo metronome the best for a no-nonsense, reliable, easy to use app that gets the job done exceptionally well. The simplicity of the app is brilliant, because it also has depth. Tempo 2 is more difficult to use, but may also have more “power”, but for most uses Tempo gets the job done exceptionally well. Every time I get a new metronome, I use it for awhile to see how I like it. So far, I keep coming back to Tempo. Also, Frozen Ape actually will occasionally send out updates to fix bugs or simplify a process. Great Job!
All-Around Good App!
by Awesomeransom on 2018/03/27 23:56
Everything is pretty straight forward, and the app allows you to create set lists and make changes on the fly. There are plenty of options for using different sounds for the beats and accents and whatnot. In addition, it is easy to share the set lists between devices! Very useful for us at the church, enabling us to use whatever devices are available at the time. The only issue I’ve got with the app is that the interface makes almost no sense when trying to “save changes” to a song. You have to click the + symbol and then overwrite the current song. Once you figure it out, it’s not a problem; but it can definitely throw you off at first. Overall, I am very pleased with this app and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile metronome app!
Must Have
by TimW.Evans on 2018/07/10 19:26
As a drummer, I have been using Frozen Ape Tempo apps in some capacity for years now. The Tempo Advance app is great, and I loved always having it on my phone but I didn&#39;t use it live. Once this version came along, the streamlined UI and easy set list features really captured me and I&#39;ve totally replaced my Tama Rhythm Watch live. I prefer this over the Advanced version, because in a live setting I like having less to accidentally mess up. You really don&#39;t ever need a standalone metronome ever again and not in a &#34;I can live with this since it&#39;s so convenient&#34; kind of way--this product is actually much better than physical metronomes that cost up to 140 dollars.
Best metronome app I've used
by Drummerboydyl on 2018/02/24 20:28
As a percussionist and former music teacher, I tried out every metronome app I could find on the App Store. This one is far and away the best. Gig mode alone is enough to put it above most. Customize meters, accent patterns, save setlists, tap tempo, etc. - it&#39;s the most full-featured metronome app out there. I also love that it now has a watch app and that I can switch songs in a setlist using the phone’s proximity sensor. The only things I&#39;d like to see change would be to add .1 bpm increments and to allow Bluetooth syncing between devices so the whole band can listen to a synchronized click.
Excellent!
by Littleanimalcollector on 2019/09/02 19:52
This app is excellent. I just started playing drums a few months ago and this is perfect. I gave it 4 stars because there is a few things Frozen Ape could do to make it better. First: the timer can’t be started over once it is started. You have to wait for it to run out. Second: this isn’t really anything wrong with the app, it’s more that it would be nice to be able to do. It would be great if you could pick the background you want at the beginning and then, whatever ones you didn’t pick, you would have to purchase later. Overall, this is a great app for my purposes and I would definitely recommend to other musicians, especially drummers.
Fantastic; get this app!
by ecdolive on 2019/04/25 16:57
Pretty sure I first got this app around 9 years ago or so when I was playing a lot of shows, and I remember it as being a pretty good basic metronome back then. The last few years I’ve been out of the loop but recently started up again and wow this app has come a long way! Love the modes and the ability to quickly and easily create setlists, as well as customize just about any aspect you want: the look, the sound, and many other options like being able to wave your hand over the phone to advance to the next song. Get this app!
Great Metronome
by Molly the Boxer on 2019/03/11 15:43
I’ve been using this metronome daily for any time I practice. The design is sleek and modern, with an easily navigable interface. The addition of the tuner is an amazing bonus. The level of depth you can go into for time signatures, tempi, and division of the beat is also above standard; however I just wish there were a few more options on that regard. Otherwise, this app is well worth a purchase for a musician of any level.
Set list feature
by Weez007 on 2018/10/04 13:35
There are many apps out there, so if all you need is a basic metronome, take your pick. This adds the extra features key to any gigging musician; most notably the ability to not only store preset song tempos, but arrange them into set lists. Add to that things like the ability to manually tap the tempo to set it, ability to change the visual features of the timekeeper, multiple time signatures to choose from, etc., it’s a solid app. One star off for intuitive interface: You have to get used to how to get around the app to do things, but once you tinker around, you’ll get the hang of it.
1 more feature?
by Renn the piano player on 2018/03/13 18:48
As a piano teacher, I teach students to demystify rhythmic groupings in the two hands played against each other from the simple, 2 against 3 (I want-a-hug) or 3 against 4 (pass the-bread and butter), to the complex (finding the least common divisor, then using the metronome for that long group and fitting the 2 different patterns together slowly). The technology of this app is way beyond what would be required to put two different groups against each other (each at a different timbre). I would gladly give up having a fuchsia background with birds and monkeys for one more real tool!
This was my go-to metronome....
by PuniRocker on 2018/09/25 15:53
And then a glitch started. When pressing the tempo up or down button and holding it shifts the tempo by 10’s, how wet randomly it will glitch out and increase or decrease tempo to maximum or minimum and any adjustment of tempo takes you to max or min. Only way to reset the glitch is to restart the app. This was on my iPhone 6 and now the same bug on my iPhone XS. I emailed support a long time ago and still have not heard back. I loved this app but now it is literally unusable in a professional setting.
NEEDS DIFFERENT VOLUMES FOR SUBDIVISIONS
by Meditative Noob on 2017/10/22 15:11
UPDATE! Tap tempo does not work for iPhone 7 with current app version. Please fix it soon. Tap tempo still works perfectly on my iPad 2. A nice app! I&#39;m a big fan of the bar counting feature. I use it every day for my practice. What I would like to see is more control over the dynamic levels of the beats. The current setup, normal, loud and mute, get the job done, but I&#39;d really like to see just one more volume level. Another met app of mine features 4 volume levels for the beats and I just like it that way. A good app all around. Set list feature seems to function well.
Very Useful App but needs iCloud set list syncing
by Cosmic Circuit on 2019/10/30 00:28
I use this app very frequently and it is designed very well and useful for rehearsing and calling up songs quickly. I wanted to use this on multiple devices (such as iPad) but my setlists and songs were input on the iPhone. While the setlists can be emailed and imported, that is not very convenient for a person who switches device frequently and needs to keep the lists synced between devices. I would love to see iCloud syncing of the lists in future updates.
Love it!
by BUBBLE APP on 2018/03/02 00:52
It’s a great metronome app, you can save certain tempos and time signatures and everything. Really easy to use. One thing I would love though, is if we could use the play/pause buttons on our phones to stop and start the metronome. I use my headphones a lot to practice with my metronome and I’m constantly accidentally pressing the play/pause button on my headphones, and having my music blasting randomly in my ears with the metronome still going. So if there’s a way you could do that, that would be awesome!
Good for Professional Drumming and whatever Setlist
by JeeArei on 2018/03/26 12:38
This is the best metronome app for 84 reasons. A.) I find it to be easier to use than competitors. I also like the Pro Metronome app but it’s harder for me to set up a Setlist because of scrolling and eyesight issues, in that particular app. W.) It’s worth the couple dollars if you seriously give a crap about subjective reviews and have wasted your tempo on reading this entire review good grief reader person.
Great, but...
by wet ham on 2017/12/28 22:48
I love this app and use it frequently. However when holding down the +\- to change tempo, the tempo changes so rapidly that I slide right past 140 bpm and suddenly find myself at 250+ bpm (and increasing drastically) when I held it down for a second. That is, if the app could allow for tempo changes from 90 bpm to 150 without sliding right past it and finding yourself at 340 in a split second, It would be better. The app didn’t used to do that. But still the app is fantastic
It doesn't get any better!
by Kmontzka on 2017/09/21 19:09
As a professional musician, I am regular need of a good, reliable metronome with some essential features. This has everything I need and plenty more. I mainly use it for theater rehearsals where the tempo is critical for the choreography. Having any number of playlists, sounds, subdivision options, and various meters is essential. This is yet another app that makes me grateful for my iPhone!
Perfect Metronome
by Anon Instrumentalist on 2019/03/10 22:51
I’ve been using this app for over 12 years now on a daily basis. It has beautiful design, excellent sounds, every subdivision and tempo map I could ever need, and every feature they add makes the experience even better. I have never once been disappointed by this app. It is perfect and indispensable and I plan on using it for the rest of my life lol.
gneiss
by Libby71248865 on 2017/12/14 16:50
I don’t know what all this band stuff is for but I’m a professional classical cellist and this is my metronome. Not my backup in case I forget my metronome; this IS my metronome. It clicks and has the option to turn the dorky beat emphasis off. That’s all you need. Also, nice move asking for reviews while people are using the metronome—good opportunity to procrastinate practicing 👍🏻
Tap Feature
by PGM211 on 2019/05/28 13:30
I like the App the one feature that could be improved is the Tap feature which is used to try and identify the tempo of a song or beat. It is a little difficult. A possible improvement would be if there was a feature that could hear 2-3 bars and then just move to that tempo the way the song identifying app heard a song and named it for you.
Almost perfect
by purefires on 2019/03/20 16:23
The controls could be more intuitive. I create many sets with differences songs. It’s tough to create a new set. And adding a song from an old set requires hitting the button “Add,” which sounds like it shouldn’t be a big deal. The problem, I’ve already tapped the song. It’s controls seem nice for a desktop experience and could be improved for a touch experience.
Best metronome app out there
by butters154 on 2017/09/07 19:22
I love this app and use it on every gig. One suggestion that I thought would be useful, is if you could add notes/reminders to each song that would show up in gig-mode. I would find that extremely helpful. That&#39;s a feature in the set list maker app that I love. But besides that, keep up the great work!
Well designed
by skyrider1416 on 2018/04/30 17:07
You can tell that the developers use this app themselves, or at least work very closely with users. It’s easy to do the sorts of things you need to do all the time, like changing the beat or increasing the tempo or changing the accents on the beats. It’s intuitive to use and does everything I would want a metronome to do.
Smooth
by SleeandCT on 2018/02/27 21:40
I teach drum lessons and have referred this to many students. Quick and easy adjustments of time signature and accent/non-accent rhythmic figures makes this a must. I have not done too much with the polyrhythmic section but the little that I have checked out it really a major bonus. This app is highly recommended..
iPhone app is great! iPad version is a pain!
by HamndChs on 2019/04/27 19:30
Using this on my iPhone is a great experience. But the stupid wheel to quickly change the tempo on the iPad version is horrible! It’s so inaccurate and difficult to use. I can usually get within about 10-15 bbm with the wheel but then I have to use the arrows to get the actual tempo I want. If I keep trying to use the wheel to get the right tempo it either won’t change the tempo when spinning it or it will go way past the number I want.
Tap needs tweaking
by JMicLS on 2018/06/28 16:31
Great app overall, but there are a few bugs. One is the tap doesn’t really seem to work anymore (though in previous versions it did), and another is it sometimes freezes in rapid tempo advance when your trying to advance by 10 (by holding the tempo up button down) Otherwise, I use this app a lot!
Flat out great
by Sheath of Myelin on 2019/09/30 20:10
I’ve used Tempo for years, and it only keeps getting better. More and more features get added - things I didn’t even think I wanted but are really useful! And the most important part, the metronome, works flawlessly. I’ve never had a complaint!
Solid App
by Drms4lyfe on 2018/10/29 17:51
Bought this app years ago for live gigs. Very useful app. Even has a set list option so that you can put a set list in it with the corresponding tempos. Also has an incorporated tuning fork in the app which is good for those last minute “tune ups” should you need it.
Improvement ideas
by kblesesne on 2018/01/02 04:51
Love this app. I have it on an iPhone 6s, an iPad (2017 not sure of the number) and an Apple Watch series 2. I found that adjusting to the latest iPhone version took a little bit, there are some things that worked fine and now are simply different. I would love to see the app work with the haptics on the Apple Watch optionally. That would take Tempo to the next level.
Great app for multiple reasons
by nikkystyx on 2018/02/07 00:05
This metronome works well as a standard metronome; it has many common features for practicing. I also use it for my gigs that require accurate tempi; you can store multiple presets within the app. The user interface is also very appealing.
So good!
by Schwappy86 on 2017/09/05 19:02
This app is amazing - I use it multiple times weekly! It&#39;s our bands click track and I save all our songs to a master set list then drop them in as needed to other set lists for different services or events. Super customizable. Simple - or complex if you need it to be!
Best Metronome for Live Playing Situations
by tlsm2 on 2019/04/11 18:07
I’ve been using Tempo for live concerts for 5 yrs. It’s never crashed on me. The iPad version is perfect for me because I play drums and run Tempo. The buttons are nice and big. Also, I love the ability to create several set lists at once. This makes batch processing tempos for set lists a breeze.
Flexible, reliable, useful
by vcmjr on 2018/07/04 00:51
The title says it all. I don’t use one feature that might be useful for professional groups — the possibility of assigning a name to a particular selection of time signature and tempo, thereby having one tap selection of tempo among a group of tempos to be used in a single performance.
Love this app, but currently bugging
by SeriousLee on 2017/10/16 17:24
Love Tempo. With iOS 11 on my iPhone 6, however, it’s been pausing and getting off-beat pretty constantly (once every other song or so). Could certainly be my phone, but hoping an update will fix the bug cause I love this app!
App works great
by baritone jones on 2017/11/19 23:56
I use Tempo whenever I practice. It’s robust enough to offer the variety of settings I need but simple enough to quickly switch from one cadence to another. Sound quality is good and it runs smooth on my iPhone 6.
Best Metronome in the AppStore
by ScoKirk on 2019/03/20 11:33
This is the best metronome app in the App Store. The setlist function works great and is just what you need on gigs. Lots of other great functions all very logically laid out in a clean interface. I’ve tried a bunch of others, but this is the one I use everyday.
Tempo is great
by Quantum326 on 2018/12/23 18:12
A very versatile program. I use it to learn rhythm and words of choir music and as a one second clock for lowering blood pressure with an 11 second breath cycle. Of course you have to climb a few learning curves. I can listen optionally through my hearing aids so march to a “different drummer”. 😄
Works great but pan needs to be fixed
by dadbodwastaken on 2018/08/06 21:20
Have used this app for about five years as click for worship. Love it BUT the pan is not working as well as it used to. Sometimes even when it is set to 100% pan right or left it bleeds into other side and obviously not desired. It’s not always possible to 0 out and reset the pan in the middle of a song🧐😱
Have used this app since probably 2012
by purplecrush97 on 2017/12/30 17:24
and i would honestly prefer this over a Korg, especially when in odd time signatures. doesn’t even compare to the other metronome apps.
Unsteady time, used to love.
by Nick, the name. on 2018/06/01 14:46
I’ve used this app for years with no problems but for the last three months or so there’s been an issue where the metronome will slow down for a beat, or drop a beat. And no, I’m not talking about the coaching mode where the silent beat is a feature. I still use it when my physical metronome is missing but it’s so frustrating to have this great app squandered.
Simple and easy to use
by dianeDrums on 2019/11/14 21:23
Rehearsing using ear buds and the click and a set list is a great way to improve your time and get ready for the studio. I have used it on stage until I learned to feel the count off. Great tool
You’ll dig this app.
by Scooobysnacks on 2018/03/16 04:50
Honestly - no complaints except on MY OWN INTERNAL CLOCK lol. Just buy the app - you won’t regret it. What’s a couple bucks - but this instead of your next cheap beer at a gig. Plus the app makers are always updating and making improvements.
Great app!
by MantisT'boggan on 2018/07/18 15:15
I use this all the time live and in the practice room. I recommend it to all my serious students. I love the odd time signature feature and the set list; it makes it easy to program my sets. Get this app!
Perfect
by Ronnie Kay on 2019/02/22 19:33
I use this metronome daily and have ever since Subdivide disappeared during an iOS update. I have no complaints and it works perfectly. That is all that anyone needs to know...
Completely in accessible with voiceover
by Anglpz on 2019/03/06 07:43
The title of my review says it all. As a totally blind iPhone user using voiceover, I cannot use this app at all. There are too many unlabeled buttons, and none of the swipe gestures that I am accustomed to using with voiceover work while using this app. Others have rated this app very highly, and I guess it is a great app. But for those of us using voiceover who cannot see the screen, it is completely useless.
Amazing Companion for Musicians!
by KingCos19 on 2018/11/04 23:12
This has saved me (a percussionist, ensemble leader, and music enthusiast—whatever that means) a countless number of times! Be it “I need to know the tempo in 5/7” or be it “I am way too slow, what was that tempo again?”... amazing. Must have!
Excellent product
by SJChannel on 2018/06/16 18:59
I’ve been using Tempo for several years and have been very satisfied with it. It’s extremely flexible and has been 100% reliable. I recommend it.
Great Metronome
by Zddfkgd855 on 2017/09/19 23:14
Great features and customization. Nice sweeping display that can be used during performance without sound for count off&#39;s and to monitor tempo without being chained to a click.

Love It
by ScrewTheNicknameRequirement on 2019/11/10 14:41
Versatile &amp; reliable, love the set list feature &amp; drum sets option. I use this for personal practice &amp; teaching students.
Very Useful App but needs iCloud set list syncing

I wanted to use this on multiple devices (such as iPad) but my setlists and songs were input on the iPhone. While the setlists can be emailed and imported, that is not very convenient for a person who switches device frequently and needs to keep the lists synced between devices. I would love to see iCloud syncing of the lists in future updates.
Used to be great
by ajessiew on 2019/10/18 22:31
Until about a year ago and could tap and hold and move the metronome up 10. Now this works about 50% of the time. The rest of the time it wildly moves past the next 10 and keeps going to either the highest tempo or lowest tempo. Doesn’t stop on the ten.
Great app!
by kdndof on 2019/10/17 15:41
It would be great to be able to change/manipulate the subdivisions on a beat-by-beat basis (i.e. 2nd partial of triplet beat 1, 3rd partial beat 2, etc.). Fantastic app!
Too complicated
by djrihd Guy on 2019/10/16 16:57
Too complicated. Difficult to navigate.

Great app to help keep your band on tempo. Easy to use in rehearsal and at the gig.
Wonderful
by Paul Sheftel on 2019/09/11 20:44
Great metronome. Many valuable features.
Best tempo app. Hands down.
by AceLasko on 2019/09/08 12:10
Used this for years. It clicks. Very customizable. Make it your own.
Excellent metronome
by PercTeacher on 2019/09/07 20:32
I use this every day with my students and my own practicing. I think this is an excellent metronome
The best!
by quecutie on 2019/09/04 00:59
My absolute favorite metronome, ever!!!
Excellent!
by Littleanimalcollector on 2019/09/02 19:52
This app is excellent. I just started playing drums a few months ago and this is perfect. I gave it 4 stars because there is a few things Frozen Ape could do to make it better. First: the timer can’t be started over once it is started. You have to wait for it to run out. Second: this isn’t really anything wrong with the app, it’s more that it would be nice to be able to do. It would be great if you could pick the background you want at the beginning and then, whatever ones you didn’t pick, you would have to purchase later. Overall, this is a great app for my purposes and I would definitely recommend to other musicians, especially drummers.

I’ve enjoyed it so far. Quick to understand and get started. Cool.
Worth it

So many easy to use features.
Great met!
by jeffzim47 on 2019/07/13 19:47
Use it during marching band rehearsals to check tempos and also before contests when I don’t have a dr beat with me. Also recommend this one first to my students!

I find the tempo app a serious tool for my practice regiment. Super awesome for working on creating solid grooves and solos. This app is user friendly!
Super helpful metronome aid
by Random Brooklyn Guy on 2019/07/06 15:14
This is a great tool to have in my pocket instead of relying on my instincts and heart beat to keep time ; )
Indispensable, none like it

Used it on my android for years, recently upgraded to an iPhone and it is an unbelievable upgrade, are use this for practice and for giving for everything, I love it

Tap Feature
by PGM211 on 2019/05/28 13:30
I like the App the one feature that could be improved is the Tap feature which is used to try and identify the tempo of a song or beat. It is a little difficult. A possible improvement would be if there was a feature that could hear 2-3 bars and then just move to that tempo the way the song identifying app heard a song and named it for you.

F*cking insane

Actaully awesome app Has been serving me well for 2 years
iPhone app is great! iPad version is a pain!
by HamndChs on 2019/04/27 19:30
Using this on my iPhone is a great experience. But the stupid wheel to quickly change the tempo on the iPad version is horrible! It’s so inaccurate and difficult to use. I can usually get within about 10-15 bbm with the wheel but then I have to use the arrows to get the actual tempo I want. If I keep trying to use the wheel to get the right tempo it either won’t change the tempo when spinning it or it will go way past the number I want.
Good Metronome!
by fiddleflake on 2019/04/25 18:38
Simple to use. Has way more functions than I’ll ever need. Loud enough too.
Fantastic; get this app!
by ecdolive on 2019/04/25 16:57
Pretty sure I first got this app around 9 years ago or so when I was playing a lot of shows, and I remember it as being a pretty good basic metronome back then. The last few years I’ve been out of the loop but recently started up again and wow this app has come a long way! Love the modes and the ability to quickly and easily create setlists, as well as customize just about any aspect you want: the look, the sound, and many other options like being able to wave your hand over the phone to advance to the next song. Get this app!
I like it
by Hirezaudio on 2019/04/25 13:51
It works well. My drummer uses it in my band and we practice and sometimes play with the click. It would be amazing if you could import your own sounds, program it with the AppleScript, and be able to hook it up to Midi.
Tempo metronome
by bubbyesq on 2019/04/21 21:07
Once I get to the correct setting, it works well. Getting to the right setting often takes a while. I have hearing aids, and they work on blue tooth with Tempo. It’s great when I’m practicing alone.
Awesome
by pimpleffskeff on 2019/04/17 04:57
I’ve had this since my 1st generation iPhone. Love this metronome!
Does what you need
by danfran440 on 2019/04/16 18:58
What’s not to like here? Good sounds, flexible meter settings, accurate (of course). And it’s there whenever you need it.
Best Metronome for Live Playing Situations
by tlsm2 on 2019/04/11 18:07
I’ve been using Tempo for live concerts for 5 yrs. It’s never crashed on me. The iPad version is perfect for me because I play drums and run Tempo. The buttons are nice and big. Also, I love the ability to create several set lists at once. This makes batch processing tempos for set lists a breeze.

The Standard
by Joser2112 on 2019/03/23 13:16
I’ve downloaded and purchased most metronomes on iOS, this is the standard. Other apps may have a niche use but for 99 out of 100 uses, I turn to this Tempo. As a owner of the classic stand alone metronomes (dr. Beat, beatlab, rhythm watch) they all collect dust now. This is the metronome I have recommended to my students for years. Ease of use, functionality and price set Tempo, as I said, as the standard bearer. Update 3-23-19 Still the best, no contest.
Speed up/slow down function is terrible
by pppppopppplopl on 2019/03/22 22:01
When I hold down the speed up or slow down button the tempo changes extremely fast and it’s very annoying.
ollie review
by oliver J. Dragon on 2019/03/22 18:04
I wish that we had an app such as this when I was a kid learning piano &amp; clarinet &amp; trying to keep time to a metronome that sometimes got off kilter!
Almost perfect
by purefires on 2019/03/20 16:23
The controls could be more intuitive. I create many sets with differences songs. It’s tough to create a new set. And adding a song from an old set requires hitting the button “Add,” which sounds like it shouldn’t be a big deal. The problem, I’ve already tapped the song. It’s controls seem nice for a desktop experience and could be improved for a touch experience.
Best Metronome in the AppStore
by ScoKirk on 2019/03/20 11:33
This is the best metronome app in the App Store. The setlist function works great and is just what you need on gigs. Lots of other great functions all very logically laid out in a clean interface. I’ve tried a bunch of others, but this is the one I use everyday.
Great little app - reliable, flexible and a powerful aid to advancing your musical skills!

Great Metronome
by Molly the Boxer on 2019/03/11 15:43
I’ve been using this metronome daily for any time I practice. The design is sleek and modern, with an easily navigable interface. The addition of the tuner is an amazing bonus. The level of depth you can go into for time signatures, tempi, and division of the beat is also above standard; however I just wish there were a few more options on that regard. Otherwise, this app is well worth a purchase for a musician of any level.
Tempo thoughts
by Deserts dime on 2019/03/11 02:27
Tempo can be buggy. Sometimes it won’t set and scrolls past tempo your trying to input. Overall great app. Would be nice if you could set the metronome click to the key of song your practicing.
Perfect Metronome
by Anon Instrumentalist on 2019/03/10 22:51
I’ve been using this app for over 12 years now on a daily basis. It has beautiful design, excellent sounds, every subdivision and tempo map I could ever need, and every feature they add makes the experience even better. I have never once been disappointed by this app. It is perfect and indispensable and I plan on using it for the rest of my life lol.
Mostly Great

Completely in accessible with voiceover
by Anglpz on 2019/03/06 07:43
The title of my review says it all. As a totally blind iPhone user using voiceover, I cannot use this app at all. There are too many unlabeled buttons, and none of the swipe gestures that I am accustomed to using with voiceover work while using this app. Others have rated this app very highly, and I guess it is a great app. But for those of us using voiceover who cannot see the screen, it is completely useless.
Wonderful! Consistent

Still My Favorite Metronome App
by jimdrum66 on 2019/01/23 16:00
As a percussionist, I collect metronomes and metronome apps. There are some great ones out there and some not-so-great ones out there. I really like Frozen Ape’s, Tempo metronome the best for a no-nonsense, reliable, easy to use app that gets the job done exceptionally well. The simplicity of the app is brilliant, because it also has depth. Tempo 2 is more difficult to use, but may also have more “power”, but for most uses Tempo gets the job done exceptionally well. Every time I get a new metronome, I use it for awhile to see how I like it. So far, I keep coming back to Tempo. Also, Frozen Ape actually will occasionally send out updates to fix bugs or simplify a process. Great Job!
Best metronome on the App Store
by <-Asmodeus-> on 2019/01/21 20:22
Well worth every penny. I use this one a lot. It is both versatile and simple which is usually a hard balance to strike, but this metronome is pretty much perfect.
Can’t ask for more

Tempo is great
by Quantum326 on 2018/12/23 18:12
A very versatile program. I use it to learn rhythm and words of choir music and as a one second clock for lowering blood pressure with an 11 second breath cycle. Of course you have to climb a few learning curves. I can listen optionally through my hearing aids so march to a “different drummer”. 😄
Great
by Skidzzzzzz on 2018/12/17 00:25
Always works well and have never had it freeze. Gave it 4 stars because I would love some drum sounds instead of just the normal beeping sounds.
No good

This has saved me (a percussionist, ensemble leader, and music enthusiast—whatever that means) a countless number of times! Be it “I need to know the tempo in 5/7” or be it “I am way too slow, what was that tempo again?”... amazing. Must have!
Please bring back classic blue theme!
by Mcflopper on 2018/11/03 15:59
My only issue in the update is the loss of the classic blue theme! Other than that it’s my favorite one and only metronome app, and I’ve tried most of them. But please bring back the classic blue theme!
Decent
by JasonCMower on 2018/10/31 00:54
If the Apple Watch version had the time tracker feature that the iPhone version has, and did haptics when the watch was on silent mode, it would get 5 stars.
Solid App
by Drms4lyfe on 2018/10/29 17:51
Bought this app years ago for live gigs. Very useful app. Even has a set list option so that you can put a set list in it with the corresponding tempos. Also has an incorporated tuning fork in the app which is good for those last minute “tune ups” should you need it.

The App I Was Hoping To Find
by BillKoep on 2018/10/21 15:43
I’m the drummer in a band that tends to start songs off tempo at times. I was searching Amazon for a device designed for drummers in live performance when I read in a review that there were better apps for iOS than any of the hardware units. Tempo came up when I checked the App Store, and based on the reviews I bought the full version. After spending some time getting comfortable with the interface I was able to setup a full 3 set performance list that flashes the first 10 bars of the selected song at the correct tempo to get us started. It then advances to the next song and waits for me to start it when I am ready. It is simple to use and easy to see. This is exactly what I was looking for. It’s the best $2.99 I have ever spent. Highly recommended!
???
by wereallsearching on 2018/10/13 17:39
All I want to do is be able to tap on the screen to figure out what tempo a certain song is in but this app makes it so complicated and difficult to navigate. Want my money back
So good!

So good. But, 실행시키지 않았는데 메트로놈 소리가 수시로 나서 Siri 그것을 끄니까 괜찮네요. ^^;
Set list feature
by Weez007 on 2018/10/04 13:35
There are many apps out there, so if all you need is a basic metronome, take your pick. This adds the extra features key to any gigging musician; most notably the ability to not only store preset song tempos, but arrange them into set lists. Add to that things like the ability to manually tap the tempo to set it, ability to change the visual features of the timekeeper, multiple time signatures to choose from, etc., it’s a solid app. One star off for intuitive interface: You have to get used to how to get around the app to do things, but once you tinker around, you’ll get the hang of it.
Reliable, easy to use, accurate metronome

Good, but not great
by hippo_momo on 2018/09/27 13:42
It’s a great app but I wish there was a version of this for the pc
This was my go-to metronome....
by PuniRocker on 2018/09/25 15:53
And then a glitch started. When pressing the tempo up or down button and holding it shifts the tempo by 10’s, how wet randomly it will glitch out and increase or decrease tempo to maximum or minimum and any adjustment of tempo takes you to max or min. Only way to reset the glitch is to restart the app. This was on my iPhone 6 and now the same bug on my iPhone XS. I emailed support a long time ago and still have not heard back. I loved this app but now it is literally unusable in a professional setting.
Super useful and accurate
by masterD_1 on 2018/09/06 00:07
App is on point, does what it is supposed to do and with a great user interface
Well Done!

I use this metronome daily. Perfect for my every need both while giving drum lessons and playing professionally!
Works great but pan needs to be fixed
by dadbodwastaken on 2018/08/06 21:20
Have used this app for about five years as click for worship. Love it BUT the pan is not working as well as it used to. Sometimes even when it is set to 100% pan right or left it bleeds into other side and obviously not desired. It’s not always possible to 0 out and reset the pan in the middle of a song🧐😱
VIBRATION mode not working with iPhone 8
by Vartagh on 2018/07/26 00:49
The vibration mode does not work with IPhone 8, from 109 bpm and up the IPhone vibrates only in the 1 and in the 3. With my iPhone 7 was working smothly. PLEASE FIX.
No control over timing
by OpraLvr on 2018/07/23 19:39
I used to love this app. Now, after wasting much time to change the configuration, I give up. Why is a time like 6/8 only permitted to be set with dotted quarter, triplets or 2 eighths. I am searching for something where it is I who decides not the programmer!!
The best metronome.
by clyderator on 2018/07/22 15:20
Easy to use. Never glitches. My favorite. It also works as a tuner in a pinch. I&#39;ve tried many metronome apps on my smart phone, and this one is by far the best.
Keeps band together
by Timmy 3P on 2018/07/20 20:40

Great app!
by MantisT'boggan on 2018/07/18 15:15
I use this all the time live and in the practice room. I recommend it to all my serious students. I love the odd time signature feature and the set list; it makes it easy to program my sets. Get this app!
Must Have
by TimW.Evans on 2018/07/10 19:26
As a drummer, I have been using Frozen Ape Tempo apps in some capacity for years now. The Tempo Advance app is great, and I loved always having it on my phone but I didn&#39;t use it live. Once this version came along, the streamlined UI and easy set list features really captured me and I&#39;ve totally replaced my Tama Rhythm Watch live. I prefer this over the Advanced version, because in a live setting I like having less to accidentally mess up. You really don&#39;t ever need a standalone metronome ever again and not in a &#34;I can live with this since it&#39;s so convenient&#34; kind of way--this product is actually much better than physical metronomes that cost up to 140 dollars.
Flexible, reliable, useful
by vcmjr on 2018/07/04 00:51
The title says it all. I don’t use one feature that might be useful for professional groups — the possibility of assigning a name to a particular selection of time signature and tempo, thereby having one tap selection of tempo among a group of tempos to be used in a single performance.
Reliable metronome; straightforward layout
by Cpt. Bisquick on 2018/06/29 14:02
My preferred metronome
Tap needs tweaking
by JMicLS on 2018/06/28 16:31
Great app overall, but there are a few bugs. One is the tap doesn’t really seem to work anymore (though in previous versions it did), and another is it sometimes freezes in rapid tempo advance when your trying to advance by 10 (by holding the tempo up button down) Otherwise, I use this app a lot!

Unsteady time, used to love.
by Nick, the name. on 2018/06/01 14:46
I’ve used this app for years with no problems but for the last three months or so there’s been an issue where the metronome will slow down for a beat, or drop a beat. And no, I’m not talking about the coaching mode where the silent beat is a feature. I still use it when my physical metronome is missing but it’s so frustrating to have this great app squandered.
Wow
by langevin 5116 on 2018/05/08 18:51
This is superb and is the best I have used. The vibration function kills and is helpful. No bugs and easy to operate.
Well designed
by skyrider1416 on 2018/04/30 17:07
You can tell that the developers use this app themselves, or at least work very closely with users. It’s easy to do the sorts of things you need to do all the time, like changing the beat or increasing the tempo or changing the accents on the beats. It’s intuitive to use and does everything I would want a metronome to do.
Great On-The-Go Metronome
by Drummer & Fan on 2018/04/28 22:21
Good, simple metronome to always have with you. As a drummer, I like a more complex unit for practice, but for the money and convenience, you can hardly go wrong with this purchase!
Great App
by MarkT-in-Mukilteo on 2018/02/04 16:46
I use this all the time for practicing guitar, not just for steady pace for chord changes, picking, etc but just as an approximate measure count when just trying to get repetition. With both the guitar &amp; horn it&#39;s also a great help to get objective feedback on my ability to speed up the pace with a passage as I get better. Another neat trick that I&#39;ll need another for (my wife&#39;s) I will start 2 metronomes at once to get a better feel for how, for example, eighth notes &amp; triplets sound together - helpful when another orchestra section is playing something different. Using this app also increases my ability to use my ear for my surrounding while playing, to better play with others during rehearsals or performances. Finally, this has many options, &amp; for an amateur like me it&#39;s perfect. My ability to listen and play to what I hear, i think essential for anyone who wants to play with others, absolutely improves with this.
Amazing
by QuarterNotes on 2018/01/25 18:33
This app works wonderfully. I used it not only as a standard metronome, but also to help myself learn three against four rhythms as well as master the syncopation in a Gershwin piece I&#39;m learning, using the different time signatures and the different levels of accent. The ability to select exactly which beats to accent (and/or be silent) as well the different note values is invaluable to me, and has really helped me overcome my difficulties with rhythm. The interface is easy to work with, and I love the feature which allows you to tap out the desired tempo. Everything needed is right at your fingertips; it is not hard at all to make any sort of adjustment to the settings, major or minor. (Also, fiddling with the background colors is fun!) This app is the best metronome I have ever used, and I would definitely recommend it.

All-Around Good App!
by Awesomeransom on 2018/03/27 23:56
Everything is pretty straight forward, and the app allows you to create set lists and make changes on the fly. There are plenty of options for using different sounds for the beats and accents and whatnot. In addition, it is easy to share the set lists between devices! Very useful for us at the church, enabling us to use whatever devices are available at the time. The only issue I’ve got with the app is that the interface makes almost no sense when trying to “save changes” to a song. You have to click the + symbol and then overwrite the current song. Once you figure it out, it’s not a problem; but it can definitely throw you off at first. Overall, I am very pleased with this app and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a versatile metronome app!

Best metronome app I've used
by Drummerboydyl on 2018/02/24 20:28
As a percussionist and former music teacher, I tried out every metronome app I could find on the App Store. This one is far and away the best. Gig mode alone is enough to put it above most. Customize meters, accent patterns, save setlists, tap tempo, etc. - it&#39;s the most full-featured metronome app out there. I also love that it now has a watch app and that I can switch songs in a setlist using the phone’s proximity sensor. The only things I&#39;d like to see change would be to add .1 bpm increments and to allow Bluetooth syncing between devices so the whole band can listen to a synchronized click.
Excellent!

This app is excellent. I just started playing drums a few months ago and this is perfect. I gave it 4 stars because there is a few things Frozen Ape could do to make it better. First: the timer can’t be started over once it is started. You have to wait for it to run out. Second: this isn’t really anything wrong with the app, it’s more that it would be nice to be able to do. It would be great if you could pick the background you want at the beginning and then, whatever ones you didn’t pick, you would have to purchase later. Overall, this is a great app for my purposes and I would definitely recommend to other musicians, especially drummers.
Fantastic; get this app!
by ecdolive on 2019/04/25 16:57
Pretty sure I first got this app around 9 years ago or so when I was playing a lot of shows, and I remember it as being a pretty good basic metronome back then. The last few years I’ve been out of the loop but recently started up again and wow this app has come a long way! Love the modes and the ability to quickly and easily create setlists, as well as customize just about any aspect you want: the look, the sound, and many other options like being able to wave your hand over the phone to advance to the next song. Get this app!
Great Metronome
by Molly the Boxer on 2019/03/11 15:43
I’ve been using this metronome daily for any time I practice. The design is sleek and modern, with an easily navigable interface. The addition of the tuner is an amazing bonus. The level of depth you can go into for time signatures, tempi, and division of the beat is also above standard; however I just wish there were a few more options on that regard. Otherwise, this app is well worth a purchase for a musician of any level.
Set list feature
by Weez007 on 2018/10/04 13:35
There are many apps out there, so if all you need is a basic metronome, take your pick. This adds the extra features key to any gigging musician; most notably the ability to not only store preset song tempos, but arrange them into set lists. Add to that things like the ability to manually tap the tempo to set it, ability to change the visual features of the timekeeper, multiple time signatures to choose from, etc., it’s a solid app. One star off for intuitive interface: You have to get used to how to get around the app to do things, but once you tinker around, you’ll get the hang of it.
1 more feature?
by Renn the piano player on 2018/03/13 18:48
As a piano teacher, I teach students to demystify rhythmic groupings in the two hands played against each other from the simple, 2 against 3 (I want-a-hug) or 3 against 4 (pass the-bread and butter), to the complex (finding the least common divisor, then using the metronome for that long group and fitting the 2 different patterns together slowly). The technology of this app is way beyond what would be required to put two different groups against each other (each at a different timbre). I would gladly give up having a fuchsia background with birds and monkeys for one more real tool!
This was my go-to metronome....
by PuniRocker on 2018/09/25 15:53
And then a glitch started. When pressing the tempo up or down button and holding it shifts the tempo by 10’s, how wet randomly it will glitch out and increase or decrease tempo to maximum or minimum and any adjustment of tempo takes you to max or min. Only way to reset the glitch is to restart the app. This was on my iPhone 6 and now the same bug on my iPhone XS. I emailed support a long time ago and still have not heard back. I loved this app but now it is literally unusable in a professional setting.
NEEDS DIFFERENT VOLUMES FOR SUBDIVISIONS
by Meditative Noob on 2017/10/22 15:11
UPDATE! Tap tempo does not work for iPhone 7 with current app version. Please fix it soon. Tap tempo still works perfectly on my iPad 2. A nice app! I&#39;m a big fan of the bar counting feature. I use it every day for my practice. What I would like to see is more control over the dynamic levels of the beats. The current setup, normal, loud and mute, get the job done, but I&#39;d really like to see just one more volume level. Another met app of mine features 4 volume levels for the beats and I just like it that way. A good app all around. Set list feature seems to function well.
Very Useful App but needs iCloud set list syncing
by Cosmic Circuit on 2019/10/30 00:28
I use this app very frequently and it is designed very well and useful for rehearsing and calling up songs quickly. I wanted to use this on multiple devices (such as iPad) but my setlists and songs were input on the iPhone. While the setlists can be emailed and imported, that is not very convenient for a person who switches device frequently and needs to keep the lists synced between devices. I would love to see iCloud syncing of the lists in future updates.
Love it!
by BUBBLE APP on 2018/03/02 00:52
It’s a great metronome app, you can save certain tempos and time signatures and everything. Really easy to use. One thing I would love though, is if we could use the play/pause buttons on our phones to stop and start the metronome. I use my headphones a lot to practice with my metronome and I’m constantly accidentally pressing the play/pause button on my headphones, and having my music blasting randomly in my ears with the metronome still going. So if there’s a way you could do that, that would be awesome!
Good for Professional Drumming and whatever Setlist
by JeeArei on 2018/03/26 12:38
This is the best metronome app for 84 reasons. A.) I find it to be easier to use than competitors. I also like the Pro Metronome app but it’s harder for me to set up a Setlist because of scrolling and eyesight issues, in that particular app. W.) It’s worth the couple dollars if you seriously give a crap about subjective reviews and have wasted your tempo on reading this entire review good grief reader person.
Great, but...
by wet ham on 2017/12/28 22:48
I love this app and use it frequently. However when holding down the +\- to change tempo, the tempo changes so rapidly that I slide right past 140 bpm and suddenly find myself at 250+ bpm (and increasing drastically) when I held it down for a second. That is, if the app could allow for tempo changes from 90 bpm to 150 without sliding right past it and finding yourself at 340 in a split second, It would be better. The app didn’t used to do that. But still the app is fantastic
It doesn't get any better!
by Kmontzka on 2017/09/21 19:09
As a professional musician, I am regular need of a good, reliable metronome with some essential features. This has everything I need and plenty more. I mainly use it for theater rehearsals where the tempo is critical for the choreography. Having any number of playlists, sounds, subdivision options, and various meters is essential. This is yet another app that makes me grateful for my iPhone!
Perfect Metronome
by Anon Instrumentalist on 2019/03/10 22:51
I’ve been using this app for over 12 years now on a daily basis. It has beautiful design, excellent sounds, every subdivision and tempo map I could ever need, and every feature they add makes the experience even better. I have never once been disappointed by this app. It is perfect and indispensable and I plan on using it for the rest of my life lol.
gneiss
by Libby71248865 on 2017/12/14 16:50
I don’t know what all this band stuff is for but I’m a professional classical cellist and this is my metronome. Not my backup in case I forget my metronome; this IS my metronome. It clicks and has the option to turn the dorky beat emphasis off. That’s all you need. Also, nice move asking for reviews while people are using the metronome—good opportunity to procrastinate practicing 👍🏻
Tap Feature
by PGM211 on 2019/05/28 13:30
I like the App the one feature that could be improved is the Tap feature which is used to try and identify the tempo of a song or beat. It is a little difficult. A possible improvement would be if there was a feature that could hear 2-3 bars and then just move to that tempo the way the song identifying app heard a song and named it for you.
Almost perfect
by purefires on 2019/03/20 16:23
The controls could be more intuitive. I create many sets with differences songs. It’s tough to create a new set. And adding a song from an old set requires hitting the button “Add,” which sounds like it shouldn’t be a big deal. The problem, I’ve already tapped the song. It’s controls seem nice for a desktop experience and could be improved for a touch experience.
Best metronome app out there
by butters154 on 2017/09/07 19:22
I love this app and use it on every gig. One suggestion that I thought would be useful, is if you could add notes/reminders to each song that would show up in gig-mode. I would find that extremely helpful. That&#39;s a feature in the set list maker app that I love. But besides that, keep up the great work!
Well designed
by skyrider1416 on 2018/04/30 17:07
You can tell that the developers use this app themselves, or at least work very closely with users. It’s easy to do the sorts of things you need to do all the time, like changing the beat or increasing the tempo or changing the accents on the beats. It’s intuitive to use and does everything I would want a metronome to do.
Smooth
by SleeandCT on 2018/02/27 21:40
I teach drum lessons and have referred this to many students. Quick and easy adjustments of time signature and accent/non-accent rhythmic figures makes this a must. I have not done too much with the polyrhythmic section but the little that I have checked out it really a major bonus. This app is highly recommended..
iPhone app is great! iPad version is a pain!
by HamndChs on 2019/04/27 19:30
Using this on my iPhone is a great experience. But the stupid wheel to quickly change the tempo on the iPad version is horrible! It’s so inaccurate and difficult to use. I can usually get within about 10-15 bbm with the wheel but then I have to use the arrows to get the actual tempo I want. If I keep trying to use the wheel to get the right tempo it either won’t change the tempo when spinning it or it will go way past the number I want.
Tap needs tweaking
by JMicLS on 2018/06/28 16:31
Great app overall, but there are a few bugs. One is the tap doesn’t really seem to work anymore (though in previous versions it did), and another is it sometimes freezes in rapid tempo advance when your trying to advance by 10 (by holding the tempo up button down) Otherwise, I use this app a lot!
Flat out great
by Sheath of Myelin on 2019/09/30 20:10
I’ve used Tempo for years, and it only keeps getting better. More and more features get added - things I didn’t even think I wanted but are really useful! And the most important part, the metronome, works flawlessly. I’ve never had a complaint!
Solid App
by Drms4lyfe on 2018/10/29 17:51
Bought this app years ago for live gigs. Very useful app. Even has a set list option so that you can put a set list in it with the corresponding tempos. Also has an incorporated tuning fork in the app which is good for those last minute “tune ups” should you need it.
Improvement ideas
by kblesesne on 2018/01/02 04:51
Love this app. I have it on an iPhone 6s, an iPad (2017 not sure of the number) and an Apple Watch series 2. I found that adjusting to the latest iPhone version took a little bit, there are some things that worked fine and now are simply different. I would love to see the app work with the haptics on the Apple Watch optionally. That would take Tempo to the next level.
Great app for multiple reasons
by nikkystyx on 2018/02/07 00:05
This metronome works well as a standard metronome; it has many common features for practicing. I also use it for my gigs that require accurate tempi; you can store multiple presets within the app. The user interface is also very appealing.
So good!
by Schwappy86 on 2017/09/05 19:02
This app is amazing - I use it multiple times weekly! It&#39;s our bands click track and I save all our songs to a master set list then drop them in as needed to other set lists for different services or events. Super customizable. Simple - or complex if you need it to be!
Best Metronome for Live Playing Situations
by tlsm2 on 2019/04/11 18:07
I’ve been using Tempo for live concerts for 5 yrs. It’s never crashed on me. The iPad version is perfect for me because I play drums and run Tempo. The buttons are nice and big. Also, I love the ability to create several set lists at once. This makes batch processing tempos for set lists a breeze.
Flexible, reliable, useful
by vcmjr on 2018/07/04 00:51
The title says it all. I don’t use one feature that might be useful for professional groups — the possibility of assigning a name to a particular selection of time signature and tempo, thereby having one tap selection of tempo among a group of tempos to be used in a single performance.
Love this app, but currently bugging
by SeriousLee on 2017/10/16 17:24
Love Tempo. With iOS 11 on my iPhone 6, however, it’s been pausing and getting off-beat pretty constantly (once every other song or so). Could certainly be my phone, but hoping an update will fix the bug cause I love this app!
App works great
by baritone jones on 2017/11/19 23:56
I use Tempo whenever I practice. It’s robust enough to offer the variety of settings I need but simple enough to quickly switch from one cadence to another. Sound quality is good and it runs smooth on my iPhone 6.
Best Metronome in the AppStore
by ScoKirk on 2019/03/20 11:33
This is the best metronome app in the App Store. The setlist function works great and is just what you need on gigs. Lots of other great functions all very logically laid out in a clean interface. I’ve tried a bunch of others, but this is the one I use everyday.
Tempo is great
by Quantum326 on 2018/12/23 18:12
A very versatile program. I use it to learn rhythm and words of choir music and as a one second clock for lowering blood pressure with an 11 second breath cycle. Of course you have to climb a few learning curves. I can listen optionally through my hearing aids so march to a “different drummer”. 😄
Works great but pan needs to be fixed
by dadbodwastaken on 2018/08/06 21:20
Have used this app for about five years as click for worship. Love it BUT the pan is not working as well as it used to. Sometimes even when it is set to 100% pan right or left it bleeds into other side and obviously not desired. It’s not always possible to 0 out and reset the pan in the middle of a song🧐😱
Have used this app since probably 2012
by purplecrush97 on 2017/12/30 17:24
and i would honestly prefer this over a Korg, especially when in odd time signatures. doesn’t even compare to the other metronome apps.
Unsteady time, used to love.
by Nick, the name. on 2018/06/01 14:46
I’ve used this app for years with no problems but for the last three months or so there’s been an issue where the metronome will slow down for a beat, or drop a beat. And no, I’m not talking about the coaching mode where the silent beat is a feature. I still use it when my physical metronome is missing but it’s so frustrating to have this great app squandered.
Simple and easy to use
by dianeDrums on 2019/11/14 21:23
Rehearsing using ear buds and the click and a set list is a great way to improve your time and get ready for the studio. I have used it on stage until I learned to feel the count off. Great tool
You’ll dig this app.
by Scooobysnacks on 2018/03/16 04:50
Honestly - no complaints except on MY OWN INTERNAL CLOCK lol. Just buy the app - you won’t regret it. What’s a couple bucks - but this instead of your next cheap beer at a gig. Plus the app makers are always updating and making improvements.
Great app!
by MantisT'boggan on 2018/07/18 15:15
I use this all the time live and in the practice room. I recommend it to all my serious students. I love the odd time signature feature and the set list; it makes it easy to program my sets. Get this app!
Perfect
by Ronnie Kay on 2019/02/22 19:33
I use this metronome daily and have ever since Subdivide disappeared during an iOS update. I have no complaints and it works perfectly. That is all that anyone needs to know...
Completely in accessible with voiceover
by Anglpz on 2019/03/06 07:43
The title of my review says it all. As a totally blind iPhone user using voiceover, I cannot use this app at all. There are too many unlabeled buttons, and none of the swipe gestures that I am accustomed to using with voiceover work while using this app. Others have rated this app very highly, and I guess it is a great app. But for those of us using voiceover who cannot see the screen, it is completely useless.
Amazing Companion for Musicians!
by KingCos19 on 2018/11/04 23:12
This has saved me (a percussionist, ensemble leader, and music enthusiast—whatever that means) a countless number of times! Be it “I need to know the tempo in 5/7” or be it “I am way too slow, what was that tempo again?”... amazing. Must have!
Excellent product
by SJChannel on 2018/06/16 18:59
I’ve been using Tempo for several years and have been very satisfied with it. It’s extremely flexible and has been 100% reliable. I recommend it.
Great Metronome
by Zddfkgd855 on 2017/09/19 23:14
Great features and customization. Nice sweeping display that can be used during performance without sound for count off&#39;s and to monitor tempo without being chained to a click.
