Designing Tachyo

There is no shortage of software metronomes in this world. I imagine that many people pick it as an exercise when learning to design or program, believing it to be a nice and simple task.

Yet despite this abundance of options, I didn’t find one that I was satisfied with. They all somehow missed the mark, not so much in terms of functionality, but in terms of usability and quality.

So I set out to create Tachyo, a new metronome for iOS. But getting there turned out to be an even deeper design and implementation challenge than I had anticipated.
