Pros and cons of Tempo - Metronome with Setlist app for iPhone and iPad

Tempo - Metronome with Setlist app good for

Excellent, especially associated with ´pitch from the same provider. It would be even more pleasant if the sounds could be associated to a simple drumbox with some preset patterns.
Fantastic tool, very professional ! It has become part of my working environment, I use it often to fine-check my tempos, and I really like it. The perfect app for a conductor or instrumentalist : simple, accurate, easy to use... And quite beautiful too ! Could you ask for more ?
I am a user since 2010! A lot of updates and new features in the last years. I am big fan!!
An absolute Breeze to use! I do use it professionally Every Day and Im still very happy!
This is the best App. in the store. Great Support , Easy of Use! For me as a Drummer I dont wanna miss it! Regards and have fun
Nice, big buttons and displays make this great tool easy to use on my iPad. Im sure Ive only scratched the surface of what Tempo can do, but I love it for my current needs and look forward to discovering everything else.

Some bad moments

The Start button has a delay of a few milliseconds, so please fix it!!!
Never have had a problem with this app until I downloaded the latest version. Now my drummer tells me that the click skips on occasion...not cool. We rely on this for our live show and we have a big one coming up!! Please fix!!
I hope the programmers associated with this app are working hard to get it up and running! I rely on this app heavily.
Have been using this app for a coupe years now. While I do enjoy several of it’s features, of late I’ve encountered some issues (iPad version) that are detrimental to a drummer during a live performance: 1) on the iPad you cannot quick edit the song tempos on the fly. For some reason this feature is only available on the iPhone version, under ‘Setlist—>Quick Edit, which is not shown in settings on the iPad version. In order to put a song with an adjusted tempo, you have to delete and re-enter it. 2) the latest version (again, on iPad) is buggy, and immediately snaps back to the top of your setlist when you try to scroll. Doesn’t happen all the time, rather intermittently, and the only fix I’ve found is to restart the device. As you can imagine when performing live, this is a big issue. This app is very close to being great, but with these issues, I can no longer rely on it for my performing needs.
Weird bug now. It always starts with a counting voice and then switches to my preferred voice. Not sure whats going on....
