    "Things to note about this app: you will definitely want to invest in a pair of wireless ear buds. Hard to hear otherwise. Also, it doesn't really help me all that much to be honest. I am probably just more traditional and would prefer an actual teacher to force me to stay on task. Someone who has a great deal of motivation could do it though, but it didn't work for me. Sorry."

    "I'm a professional drum player and this app just isn't cutting it for me. I've tried it for awhile but it's obviously aimed at beginners and intermediates. It did have a few nice features but I ended up using a different application. It is free to try so that was nice."

    "The fact that this app has been approved by Mike Mangini should tell you this metronome is no joke. I am not a drummer, I play classical violin... my brother (a drummer) actually turned me on to this app when my beloved metronome met her untimely death at the hands of my crazy cat. I figured I would use the ap until I found a "real" metronome I liked. It's been several months and I am still using it. I can play any tempo but what I really like is that I can customize this app to fit my needs. This app is a must for any musiciam."
