"Simple, useful, and good looking! Love it!" - D. Yang
MetroTimer is the most accurate metronome app on the App Store. It provides highly accurate audio and visual feedback, and easy to use timer to track your practice sessions.
MetroTimer is also one of the most beautifully designed metronome apps - it was recently featured on Behance!
MetroTimer has been measured to be more accurate than any other metronome app for iOS. Most app store metronomes are derived from Apple sample code included with the iOS SDK (Software Development Kit). And regretfully, this code fails to account for all the factors that can cause small inaccuracies to build up over time. MetroTimer, created by a software company that specializes in clock time measurement and regulation, is guaranteed to meet laboratory standards for accurate timekeeping.

Ratings and Reviews
Perfect App for focussing practice
This metronome is great for keeping you focussed during practice! It's amazing how long 10 minutes of warming up can feel some days, but the handy timer makes sure that it is consistently 10 minutes warm up every day, 10 minutes of this, 15 minutes of that... etc... before you know it you have done an hour of solid practice every day for a week and found that you have little bits of practice time available all over the place! This app helps you take advantage of the 2 minutes waiting for the kettle to boil, etc...
This is awesome! Totally easy to use and lots of options. Only downside being that it seems to only have one time signature. But you can tap out you own speed and there are 8 different metronome voices playing with or without a flash and you can have it going for set times. The metronome continues if the app is closed which is really useful. Upgrade to the full version to have virtually any time signature- really helped me along with Jazz rhythm in a 5/4 time signature. Definitely worth the pipsqueak of a price I paid for it!
MetroTimer Full Version
Best advice I've been given for learning guitar:
15 minutes (daily) of playing along with a metronome to a riff, chord progression or solo is worth two hours of sitting in your bedroom aimlessly noodling through the stuff that you have learned without something keeping you in time.
This app is all you need, it's a metronome and a timer in one. It is simple and it works when your phone is in sleep mode too.
It's honestly made a huge difference to my playing already. Don't get into bad 'bedroom guitarist' habits like I did.
