Frozen Ape has released Tempo 3.0, a complete rewrite of the iOS app's user interface on the iPhone. This is the biggest update since Tempo exploded onto the market four years ago and quickly became musicians' favorite. "As user requests added more and more features to Tempo, it soon became clear that they were outgrowing the original design." says Frozen Ape founder Zen Ho. "To better accommodate the expanded feature set, we decided the rethink the interface. The solution is to show, hide and resize features according to the user's immediate needs."

The new interface has a modular design that morphs between four layouts. Each mode exposes a different combination of features appropriate for different situations. The Basic mode is great for general, no-frills usage. The Setlist mode is intended for creating and managing setlists. The Practice mode lets you load presets from a setlist and track how many bars or for how long each preset is played. During live performances, the Gig mode puts the setlist in focus, getting rid of unrequired controls. Users with basic needs can stick to a favorite mode, while power users can switch between modes to optimize their experience.

Equally exciting is a new Theme Editor, available as an upgrade via in-app purchase. The editor lets users customize the app to any color scheme, for instance, to match their band colors. Any image can be used as a wallpaper. Themes can be shared via email. To start users off, a Premium Theme Pack of ten themes is also available as an upgrade.

iOS users can now enjoy the core features of Tempo for free in a Lite version. As a special treat, the iPhone version includes the Tracker Module for tracking practices. Tempo Lite can be upgraded to unlock the complete suite of features, and is available immediately for download on the App Store.

Key new features
- Flexible interface that morphs between four modes
- Fullscreen display mode with gesture-based controls
- Sharing of setlists via email
- Control playback and setlist via external input devices, including Airturn and PageFlip Cicada
- Theme Editor and Premium Theme Pack via in-app purchase

Device requirements

Pricing and availability
Tempo 3.0 is available for new customers at $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) on the App Store. The update is free for existing customers. Tempo Lite 3.0 is available for free on the App Store. Parties who would like to review Tempo may contact Frozen Ape for promotional codes.
