Actually not bad

Well before I thought this would be another one of those knock off tuners. But, actually it was really great you can pick themes which no other tuners have a theme to change automatically every 2 weeks. It’s also great that you can have custom sounds I use the real time sound. I give this a 5 out of 5. The adds don’t bother me because they only interrupt the bottom and doesn’t cover the whole screen like other tuner, and the ability to stop seeing adds for an hour just by watching a 5 sec or 30 sec video is great. Thanks for making an almost perfect tuner. I wish we can set our custom themes by using our photos or having the ability to use custom iPhoen sounds in iTunes library.

Feature Requests

I would love to see the background feature work for the metronome programming (the one where it changes tempo based on time signature and measure number) AND the timer metronome feature (the one that is more easily noticeable on how to find and use). This would be very useful because I am a small musician, that records band music and writes original songs and remixes, but this app doesn’t have a very good recording function. It would be nice if I could be in another app that I use for recording, with my USB to lightning cord adapter and a USB Blue Snowball to be plugged in, while the metronome plays, without giving any feedback. Thanks! On a side note, when I first downloaded the app, I couldn’t find the programming feature, which is what I was needing, as well as looking for, so I deleted the app. I did decide to reinstall the app, and then found the feature. It would be nice if you make it easier to find. Lastly, although this app looks like a scam, bad, and knockoff application, it actually functions pretty great! It is my number one choice for a metronome app! Thanks again!

Perfect for Practice

If you’re looking for a simple and smart metronome for practice this is nearly perfect. It has several features that are hard to find all together in other apps. The design is well thought out so all features are all quickly accessible from the main screen.

The features that I really like:
1. Realistic Pendulum ... with an elastic swing!
2. ... at the same time - Beat markers!
3. Automated practice trainer (by time, reps or % speed)
4. Automated practice log
5. Song list where you can save different settings
6. The drum sound (cymbals)

There are also basic color themes and a basic tuner. You can sub-divide the beat but it doesn’t do polyrhythms.

I’ve bought and used the 10 most popular metronome apps, but this has become my go-to because of the clean easy interface that mimics a real metronome, but also adds the features that an app can give you. All without overloading itself with too many features.

Features I’d like to see:
- landscape mode (only works in portrait mode)
- be able to stress different beats (other than 1)
- beat block (like in pro metronome)
