I've recently switched to Android from iOS and was happy to see this app here as well. But unfortunately it's missing some fairly critical features around playlists. For starters, why can't I search for songs? It seems like a massive miss to exclude this feature. Also, why can't I add songs to a playlist from other playlists? More than willing to drop 5 stars for those features.

I purchased the ad-free version for Android for my cell phone and my tablet. I need info on how to take a full catalog of songs I imported into Tempo and create set lists by choosing which songs from that full catalog to put into the set lists for upcoming gigs. If this is possible, I haven't found out how to do it or where to go for some actual guidance on using the app. Right now I'm creating 3 set lists from the start, even though I have a master set list of all the songs in our repertoire.

Updated: nice UI! Happy about more time signatures. Accent changes are good in that the metronome keeps going even if you change accents. My score digital metronome. Even sounds nice! STILL NEEDS A POLYRHYTHM FEATURE! March 2017: 2 stars... Good basic metronome... But Apple has some FANTASTIC features... which this does not have. My favorite and most needed feature is the Polyrhythm metronome.
