Compared to other apps, all the features of the Metronome app is free! No distracting ads either.
I know you’d say it’s a bit cheeky to add our own app on this list. On the other hand, we really do believe that we’ve created the best free app and so do thousands of musicians who download it on a weekly basis. It is a hassle-free app tailored for musicians of all levels.

You can just hit the song you need and it will give you the correct timing and BPM for it.
Although the free version of the metronome for iOS has a good interface, there are lots of missing features that you can find on other free apps.

The lack of ads is unusual for a free app.
Although it is a great ad-free metronome, there are not a lot of extra features included.

Metronome Reloaded is a unique take on metronome app. For instance, they simulate of a traditional mechanical metronome.
However, this quickly loses its initial appeal after a few uses. since the whole point of using a software metronome is to get away from the hassle of a mechanical one. We also noticed that ads often pop-up.

One of the best metronome apps for iOS. It is really easy to use and it nurtures FUN into practice.
The app is very restricted unless you pay for the full version. Moreover, most people will be unwilling to pay $7.99 per week for a metronome app, and the reviews reflect this.
The app is also very intrusive when it comes to forcing you to pay for the weekly subscription. As a result, people who install immediately uninstall.

Lots of great features, including compatibility with Ableton Link with is a huge plus.
The interface is quite busy and might be overwhelming for beginners.

Subdivisions are easily accessible and there’s even a button to enable or disable stressing the first beat. The timer features is useful too as it lets the stop the metronome after a certain duration.
We personally experienced some technical issues where the app stopped making sound.

This app has an interesting design where you see the beat visual move and bounce around the screen.
The ads are very intrusive. For example, ads will suddenly pop up when you pause the metronome.
