Tempo, the premier metronome app for iOS is now available as this free Lite version. Tempo was featured as "New and Noteworthy" and "Staff Favorite" by Apple on the main iTunes landing page. Now you can enjoy Tempo's core features before upgrading to its full suite of features.

Tempo Lite'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.

As a special treat, we've included the Tracker Module which helps in your practices by tracking the number of bars or time played.

As opposed to purchasing Tempo, upgrading Tempo Lite nets you a dark colour scheme for the flipside views (instead of light).

Well worth buying the full features

As a solo musician this was perfect. The best feature (apart from the metronome it’s self) is the play list. Being able to make a set that’s easy to move to the next was so good

Comprehensive and sleek

Best metronome I have used over the years. I was more than happy to upgrade for more features. I only wished that the vibrate function would also work on the Apple Watch. This haptic feedback would really support my Pranayama exercise!

Set list feature is great

Love the set list feature. Can be used to count songs in as you go through your set and can be set to stop automatically after a few bars.
