Tap Metronome

Tap Metronome Plus

AppIcon76x762xTap Metronome is a simple metronome for those who want quick access to a reliable metronome.


  • Three ways to choose tempo: tap the speed you want, select from the picker list or type the number (access by tapping on the white tempo on the iPhone).
  • Loud beeps: Volume as loud as possible to be audible above music. Visible volume control so you can increase it further.
  • Choose the number of beats in the bar (from 1 to 7).
  • Visible beat indicator.
  • Rotate the view for a Landscape version, so you can put the device on a music stand without covering the speaker.
  • Accurate: many of the free metronomes in the App Store are not accurate because they are based on old sample code, and over a number of seconds they get a beat out. This metronome is one of the few which is accurate for hours.
  • Add the Metronome as a Today View extension.
  • On Apple Watch: a simple independent metronome which quietly taps you on the beat.  In addition, a Glance, and multiple Complications, allow you to see your current tempo and quickly access the metronome app through them.
  • Use 3D Touch Quick Actions to start the metronome at multiple tempos directly from the Home Screen icon.

For Tap Metronome Plus:

  • No ads.
  • Choice of Beep, Drum, Clap and Metronome sounds, as well as pitched beeps to match your music.
  • Flash mode, which flashes the entire screen for each beat.

Tap Metronome (free): iTunes store.

Tap Metronome Plus (69p): iTunes store.

The metronome should just work, but if you have any queries, please contact me.

Will there be Tap Metronome for any system other than iOS?
Probably not!
