Blinky, unlike regular metronomes, is a visual metronome application. Blinky does not use sounds (yet), but rather conveys the tempo by blinking (i.e. changing the color of the screen from black to white and vice-versa). This was due to the annoyance of regular metronome sounds interfering with the music being played. The loud beeps that regular metronomes output caused a distraction to all the musicians and thus mistakes were made.

I love the sleek, simple design. I’m a speech therapist who works with adults with acquired brain injury. This app is great to provide visual feedback for fluency and attentional regulation tasks. It would be great if a sound on/off option would be available in future updates.
But... it would help if there was an option to keep the phone awake! Otherwise it’s awesome. Thx
Amazingly perfect and simple!!
This is exactly what I want behind the drums for shows!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
