The idea is great, but I'm afraid the metronome isn't very accurate at all. It constantly slows down and speeds up depending on the CPU usage, making it unusable. Other than that, it did it's job. Fix the timing, and this widget will be perfect!

Works very well for me. I've found that the counting visualisation works consistently enough to be usable, as does the square, but the analog doesn't work very well.

Visually it's good, although according to Apple's guidelines you aren't supposed to have Aqua effects on the front of the widget. Not exactly a big deal.
