On November 4th, Steinway & Sons, builder of the world's finest pianos for more than 157 years, unveiled something it had never built before — a full-featured digital metronome app for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
The Steinway Metronome is a free application that allows musicians to dial in the tempo of the piece they are practicing or just tap along to let the app find it. It allows for customization of time signature, visual indicator, and sound options to user preferences and even the interface can be customized from a wide selection of available "veneers" to match the user's taste or the finish of their instrument.
Early reviews of the app have been overwhelmingly positive, with many calling it the best metronome app available on iTunes (including the metronome apps that are not free).
