This started out as a very basic Metronome I wrote to guide me during my piano lessons. It has turned into a rather rich Metronome thanks to all the user feedback. I hope it will be as helpful for you as it was for me.

Any feedback or feature requests are welcome:

What’s New

Version 1.1

It's a metronome!

Much as I am growing weary of applications that run from the menubar, this one's appearance there actually makes sense, as the metronome is available from any application.

It is simple, it does what it is supposed to, and most importantly, the user can choose a hotkey start/stop combo that will work everywhere. I have two other app store metronomes, but for some odd reason, they do not have start/stop keys, configurable or otherwise. This one does, so I am a new fan.

My only complaint is the monochrome icon in the App Launcher: it disappears against dark wallpaper. Adding contrast without making the design more complicated should be relatively easy, I would think. Do that and I'll come back and give it its fifth star.

Just a minor request.

This app does work, it just doesn't launch when you click the icon it goes to the tool bar where you can find it easily. Like many have said in the other reviews it's at the top of the screen. That would be nice to see in the description of it, so people know what to do, and that would take care of a lot of the negative reviews. The only little tiny problem I have is that it only goes to 240 bpm. That's pretty standard. My stand alone metronome only goes to 250. What I'm doing is working on speed, and it would be great if it could go above that. That could be pretty easy to do in an update. Otherwise great app, and useful for those of us too lazy to walk into the other room and grab our metronome.

Started to skip half a beat

I have been using this app for some time without problems. But recently it has started to skip half a beat. I almost always use it at 60bpm and I thought I was going crazy because it sounded like it was skipping a beat every so often. I have a quartz metronome so I checked it against that and sure enough it is skipping beats.

I’ve always enjoyed this app and found it useful, especially the fact that you can set up hot keys to turn it on and off.

If I can find a way to stop it from skipping I’ll continue to use it. Otherwise I’ll have to look for something else.
