It doesn't have every feature that the paid version has, but it's still the best free metronome around:

Realistic old-school metronome animation

Six different sound effects (37 in the paid version!)

Tap tempo - tap the screen to set the speed

Tempo training mode - it listens to your beat - no screen tapping required!!!

30-300 beats per minute

The highest accuracy and repeatability possible

Set using an intuitive simulated metronome weight and a fine adjustment wheel.

Seven quick-select time signatures

Customize with any simple or complex meter you could want.
Separate control of beat markers, measure markers, and subdivision markers.

Visual counting mode, with multiple options depending on the time signature.

Italian tempo markings.

Demo of audible voice counting. Upgrade for the real thing.

Supports headphones to practice quietly or in noisy environments

AND

A basic drum machine, with six sound effects (37 in the paid version). Your loop lengths are also limited in the free version. Build a sound loop by entering note lengths, rests, and sound effects! Play the loop while you're building it, for instant feedback.

AND

A complete set list manager! Name your metronome settings and/or drum machine loops so you can call them back later.

If you like this app, please support my work by upgrading! The paid app doesn't cost much, and you'll get 37 sound effects, voice counting, a full-featured drum machine, and the ability to pick custom background colors!

Thanks!!!

--- USER'S GUIDE ---

INTRODUCTION

Meganome displays an animated metronome in the upper panel. The lower panel contains a tabbed display that shows either the metronome controls, the drum machine, or the set list manager. Press the appropriate tab to switch between them. The size of the lower and upper panels can be changed by sliding the grey divider bar up or down.

METRONOME SPEED

To adjust the metronome speed, tap the upper panel, and the settings dialog will slide in. Slide the metronome weight or rotate the adjustment wheel to directly adjust the speed. Tap on the drum pad to enter a bpm by tapping. Press the "Train" button to train the metronome to any beat the phone's microphone can hear.

METRONOME CONTROLS

In the metronome controls tab, press the Beat Sound, Measure Accent, and Subdivision buttons to toggle audible beat modes. Change your time signature by pressing one of the seven different time signatures. The current time signature is highlighted by the green rectangle. To add a custom time signature, long-press an existing time signature, and you can replace it with a custom time signature of your choice. For certain time signatures, pressing the visual counting display will toggle between different counting modes.

DRUM MACHINE

In the drum machine tab, select a beat duration and a beat source from the pull-down menus. You can listen to a sample of your current beat selection by pressing the green play button. Use the add beat icon (right arrow) to add this beat to your composition. The beat will be added above your current selection in the scrollable lower left list. Press the trash icon (left arrow) to remove the highlighted beat. The "Press to Play" button plays your composition.

SET LIST MANAGER

In the Set List Manager tab, press the add icon (right arrow) to add the current metronome and drum machine settings to the set list. Use the trash icon (left arrow) to remove the highlighted set from the set list. Press the green play icon to load a set that has been selected by scrolling the lower left list.

OTHER SETTINGS

The phone's menu button accesses additional settings. Select your preferred beat sound, subdivision sound, accent sound, enable voice counting, change the background color, and change the volume. The phone's physical volume buttons also change the volume.

Enjoy!

    Nice variety of sounds. Interface could use work. To get to the slider control for the bpm, you need to grab the tiny icon at the top left of the screen. But it's right where the ads are so most times you end up opening the ad. Other than that, okay

    Sure, it produces sound, but the graphics are screwed up and I can't change the BPM from the default of 120. I'm sure this is a great app. It just doesn't work for my phone.

    I really can't see why you have such good reviews. The settings are crap and there is no way of stopping the metronome. It starts ticking away on start up and no way of pausing or stopping it. Also , where the hell is the "drum machine" like the name says?
