What's New

• New audio and timing engine that's more accurate and stable
• Various components rewritten to use newer APIs

App Description

Tempo, the premier metronome app for iOS is now available as this free Lite version. Tempo was featured as "New and Noteworthy" and "Staff Favorite" by Apple on the main iTunes landing page. Now you can enjoy Tempo's core features before upgrading to its full suite of features.

Tempo Lite's engine is written from the ground up for high accuracy and stability. It keeps going even in device lock mode, making it a useful aid for live drumming.

As a special treat, the iPhone version includes the Tracker Module which helps in your practices by tracking the number of bars or time played.

As opposed to purchasing Tempo, upgrading Tempo Lite nets you a dark colour scheme for the flipside views (instead of light).
