This Software for the Psion 3a palmtop is a fully featured metronome for musicians. It beeps in any tempo with rhythmical subdivisions with an accuracy of 1/1024 second. The tempo is also shown visually by a walking black block on the screen.
The user can save all settings to files, so he can have a set of settings for different practising situations. Please read details about the Metronome's features below.
The program is shareware. For unregistered users, there are some nag-screens and the file management is limited to only one user-file for the settings. You can register by paying approx. 25 US$ or 15 Euros to me (address se below). I don't mind if you send cash in US-Dollars, Swiss Francs or Japanese Yen. Only with EC-Cheques or bank transfer it must be Euro.
