I still think that Beat on is among the best "Classic" metronome in the App Store.
Beat on is still Free, so if you need a metronome, try it.
After my review 1 big update, the version 1.2.
Published on 30 Sep
A Killer Metronome for Free without ad! (We will say Big thanks to the developer at the end of this post, only). Ok, no suspense until to find out our rating, but I wanted to begin my review like this... So, why it is a Killer metronome? Because of its beautiful Ui. Because Beat Metronome is very well done. Because of its Flashlight and Vibration on accent (iPhone) and its background mode. But above all for these 2 really cool feature:. The first one is made to train you to stay on the beat. (Note that until now, I've never seen this feature in an another App). Yes, you can ask Beat Metronome to mute beats on different bars. This done, try to follow the beat. The other cool feature is the Speed Training mode: set the start BPM bar faster or slower than the last one and try to follow the beat. (When I made this review, some memories came into my mind. It was my first recording in a real studio... A nightmare... It was the first time that I was able to hear all the instruments clearly... my guitar too... When I came back home, I took my favourite software at the time... Sound Designer and started to record my guitar with a click... With the waveform displayed on the screen, I was able to check my accuracy... If I told you this, it is because at the end of this review, I was telling myself that this could be a good idea for a metronome App... Or not... :-) ). So, to conclude this review: Big thanks to the developer!

"I'm a musician that relies on a metronome with a lot a customization. This is the best Metronome app I've used, and I've tried a dozen different ones."
Beat On - The best and most Advanced Metronome App for iOS built in with special training modes to improve the sense of rhythm and learn different music styles. Watch the instruction Video: http://youtu.be/RLrWpddcJzk
Beat On is based on the industrial standard MIDI technology. It is the most accurate metronome, and the Tempo of which can be corrected to two decimal places.
Beat On offers two unique training modes, with this function, it builds your rhythm faster and smarter: Accuracy Training and Speed Training.
The Accuracy Training Mode is to practice with a regular loop between Sound On and Sound Off. You can try to follow the beat in the tempo when the Sound is Off, then check if you are still in the right tempo when the sound is back on.
The Speed Training Mode has easier ways to build your speed of strumming, drumming or jamming other instruments. In this mode, Beat On automatically changes the Tempo in optional speed rate(BPM) and bars. You can also set the starting BPM and finishing BPM to practice from fast to slow or slow to fast, of course, you can practice in loop.
You can easily customize the time signatures (1~16/1, 1~16/2, 1~16/4, 1~16/8, 1~16/16) and subdivisions including whole note, half note, quarter note, eighth note, sixteenth note, thirty second note, sixty fourth note, triple notes and syncopated notes.
The accents of beats can also be customized to any position in a looping bar which includes Accent "f" (Yellow), Unaccented "p" (Grey) and Rest "Mute" (Black).
Besides hearing the beat tones and watching the beat sector on the screen, you can also See the beats in Flashlight and Feel the beats in Vibration(iPhone Only).
