Jed Fish Gould's Review of LivebpmReviewed on 9/2/19 1:57 PM
Sometimes you just need to quickly know the BPM of a song, and you do not have the time (or the mind!) to do the math. It’s annoying that the orientation is landscape. A bit more difficult to hold with one hand and operate.

This seems like a decent tool for recording speed at lower tempos. However it only seems to effectively measure tempo ranges below roughly 200 bpm. I personally bought this to measure drum roll speed, but sub 200 bpm is way to slow to for any reasonable roll. So for what it can do it’s a fine app, just don’t expect to measure a 800 bpm roll on this with any real accuracy.

I’ve used this app for about 1 year. Love it. Out of the blue, it shows up as only a black screen. I reset my phone to factory settings. No go. Still a black screen. iPhone 7 current OS. Only writing here because cannot find a way to contact developer. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Might be a hardware problem. Frustrating nonetheless. Please advise.

The app can be a bit wonky with odd time signatures, but it otherwise does a fairly amazing job without the need for extra trigger hardware. I have used it to learn how my emotions impact my tendencies to speed up or slow down. I also use it to show bandmates where their perception of time is off (“No, in fact we did not speed up. We were +/- 1 bpm the entire time. Have a look at the data.”)

Not so many musicians have a perfect feel for tempo. “We” as base players and drummers are the guides. This app is a must have and it closes out the complaints from singers and other not perfect timers. I (the drummer) set the tempo for the band. Without the app I was not able to SHOW the factual tempo and that is where it gets annoying sometimes. Now the tempo played is not a “feeling” anymore but a fact. Made my live easier. And I can see when I screw up before anybody else 😉. And yes sometimes the singer of solo players want some freedoms, that’s fine too! We than can show them how much freedom we gave them.

Slow to register beats measurement. Consistently off the actual bpm being played. Not sure why this app costs a much as it does.

Previously I stated you could not close the app on an iPhone X however as the developer pointed out if you do turn the phone sideways you can close it by swiping up. Thank you so much for the response this alleviated a very frustrating problem for this app.

I have enjoyed using this app, and the developer was very responsive to a question I had.

I use it all the time for mixing my records. It never fails! Giving it a 4 since it could have a better interface, perhaps some digital-looking font and a “night mode”.

Great learning tool. Only suggestion: have an option to play along to roadmaps of charts (could be open-source) so it could tell you where your time was inconsistent. (i.e. rushed at bridge, hits, etc)
