Smartphone apps help us do everything from order pizza to check the weather. So why not use an app to help you count? Our team of testers evaluated eight metronome apps to determine which apps are both user friendly and useful to harpists. The apps range in price from free to $4.99, and, at the time of testing, all had ratings of four stars or higher in the Google Play and Apple App stores. Don’t see your favorite app? We only tested apps that work on both Android and iOS operating systems. Our testers compared the same features in every app on both operating systems, and rated each app on a scale of 1–5. Neither the Harp Column nor the app testers were paid to endorse any particular app.
