These are applications for the two major mobile operating systems that I find very useful in my day-to-day practice. Click on the app logo to go to the page to download it.

Android:

Metronomes:
Tempo Lite: Tempo gives you the features you need without sacrificing usability. Its engine is written from the ground up for high accuracy and stability.

Save your configurations as songs in setlists and share them with friends, including those using iOS devices.

 

time guruTime Guru: Develop your inner sense of rhythm with Time Guru – the only metronome with the ability to mute its sound at random, in sequenced patterns, or both, so that you can assess whether you tend to rush or drag or loose your place with odd meters. Time Guru can periodically leave you on your own so that you strengthen your own internal sense of time, rather than relying on the constant, rigid, external time keeping of a metronome.

 

drumDrum Beats+: Drum Beats+ is a simple and fun collection of drum loops for stress-free jamming and songwriting accompaniment. A typical drum machine requires you to make your own beats from scratch; not this one. Ranging from 1 to 4 bars in length, these drum loops are great for casual practice or exploring song ideas.

 

Tuners:

ntrack droid n-Track Tuner: Tune your guitar, bass or other instrument with n-Track Tuner. Just put your device next to your instrument and play each string, the tuner will automatically recognize the note you’re playing and tell you wether you need to lower (green bar) or increase (red bar) the string’s pitch. The spectrum analyzer provides a visual feedback of the notes played by the instrument and shows a small arrow to highlight the harmonic whose pitch the tuner is tracking.
