UPDATE: As promised, changing my rating to 5* because the background issue is fixed and the metronome works perfectly now! Also the tip they provided to keep the screen awake was very helpful in the interim. Thanks again! ORIGINAL: Will change rating to 5 stars after the background bug is fixed. For now, I have Google Maps navigating somewhere with alerts off. This keeps the screen alive. But you MUST keep the Metronome App in the foreground as well...

Hi Matt, in Settings -> App settings there should be something called "Screen always on" that will do the job without Google Maps. Both of our Android engineers are urgently working on the background fix.

Bug with interval still exists more than 7 months in. It seems like it treats the subdivisions as individual beats in a bar. For example, if I have +5 bpm every 4 bars in 4/4 then after the app beats 16 times then it will increase the interval. This becomes an issue when you use subdivisions instead of straight quarter notes. In this example, if I subdivide to 16th notes, in 1 bar the interval will increase (4 beats in a 4/4 bar * 4 sixteenth notes per beat = 16 beats). Downbeats also triggers.

Hi Elton, thank you, this was missed by our team after I reported it and not reported by anyone else since. I just pinged them again to try to reproduce this and if so fix it ASAP. Sorry it has not been fixed.

App used to be great, but now clogged with ads and subscription pushes for useless extras. The metronome now only plays for a bit and then stops, so I can't even get through a whole page of music now without having to stop and fiddle with the app to keep going. Put up with the ads for a long time, but I have to find something else because it's unusable now.

Hello, I am sorry we know about the background bug and are in the process of fixing it. We thought we already did, but it didn't work as expected. We're working on it. Regarding ads, we'll soon ship a feature (for Plus subscribers) to hide all ads. We are sorry for the recent instability but we'll promise we get back on track.
