How do you choose from the seemingly countless number of metronome apps on the app store? Here’s a hint: go with the masses. Ever since its release, Tempo has been consistently in the top 100 of the Music category in over 30 countries. With over 160,000 copies sold, Tempo is simply the best-selling metronome app for the iPhone OS. It is used daily by performing artists for their gigs, by teachers in their lessons, by musicians in their practices; by golfers to time their swings. Even our competitors have taken to copying our interface.
Tempo gives you the features you really need without sacrificing usability. Its engine is written from the ground up for high accuracy and stability. Over that is wrapped an attractive, simple and yet comprehensive single-screen interface. It keeps going even in device lock mode, making it a useful aid for live drumming.
