I like this app a lot, as a college music student I use it regularly, but the metronome is infuriating sometimes. I recently had to reinstall this app to my new phone and it won't let me select the "Auto" function for the met., which is really infuriating because I can't stand the tempo wheel. Other than that issue this app is good, but considering how often I use the metronome for practice I'd really like to know if that's just a bug for the Pixel 6a or something else entirely

Metronome is too quiet. With a loud instrument it is inaudible at maximum volume. Phone is not the issue, have other apps that get loud. Interface is cluttered, you figure it out eventually, but not intuitive. When you leave the app and come back it doesn't return to the previous screen. The practice tracking is so-so. Timer only works when the tuner screen is active, and I often use other apps to practice so it is not effective for tracking actual practice time. Other than that, pretty good.

First, I'd like to say this is best metronome/tuner on the market. With that being said, it can still improve: Quite difficult to be precise in the option to stretch tempo by percentage, perhaps a wheel--like with tempo in metronome--could be easier and more intuitive. Lastly, recording ability can be improved by making it easier to scroll up or down the list of your takes. 4.5/5 ⭐
