Perfect titling. It is very simple and accurate. Tap tempo option is excellent. Really need to be able to turn off the blinking red "LED" though! I'm sure it varies phone to phone, but I'm hearing the click when the blink goes out. And I'm not convinced the visuals beat evenly at higher tempo. Visual perception tricks possibly, but I can't use it when the screen's in sight! Works great on the table behind me though. 🐢
Free, works well, no ads, no unreasonable permissions - what's not to love! The full-screen "Visual Click" is great to have. This app can be part of a musician's toolkit of essentials; Tap Tempo answers the question "how fast are they taking that?" I'd also suggest DaTuner Lite (unless you play piano, accordion, vibes, or another instrument you don't tune yourself). You might also like LiveBPM (for a few dollars), an "unmetronome" that listens and detects the actual tempo, with a numeric display plus a graph for the last five minutes.
I was looking for a metronome to keep time for breathwork in my meditation class (in for 4 seconds hold for 4; out for 6 Etc) so I only need something simple. Don't want bells and whistles or intrusive ads and this was perfect. I do however need a good natural and non-intrusive sound. I liked the woodblock sound- perfect for a meditation class. The duck was a very entertaining addition. The wet fart? Fell over laughing! Thanks for that unexpected bonus :)
Great little app! I researched for hours to find this perfectly simple app. Stability and simplicity is really all a musician needs. Just 1 thing I'd like to see added. The ability to turn off the blinking light, as there is a slight lag between the sound and light. I learned that is something that can't be fixed in an Android platform. Thank you Ethan Brown. This app has saved the day, and free with no ads just can't be beat!
This and Irrational Metronome (for the rare complicated odd meters) cover all my needs. This one has a very clean and easy to use interface. It allows me to tap the tempo, select different click sounds, and says what a particular tempo range is called. Very nice. The uncluttered interface allows me to use it on the fly, such as to tap out which tempo the conductor is using during rehearsal, so I can write it down in pencil on my sheet music and practice at the same one later at home. It can also blink the screen in time to the tempo, but I keep that turned off because I don't like the blinking and because there is a slight delay (in any case, a little red indicator light also blinks, which is enough for me).
I was after a straight forward metronome to keep me in tempo when laying down a backing track. Everything else I tried was far to complicated for my requirements. This great little app is perfect. Thanks so much.
