1) Show the BPM at which the metronome is running.
2) Adjustable clicks per beat (1 to 16) would be great. It could be useful to avoid 'silence' between main clicks when practice in slow mode. Furthermore it helps in songs with 'fancy' rhythms.

BPM visible when slowing down a song would make practicing when not following the bouncing ball much easier. Set a metronome and play at the same speed you have been in the app.
Also have the ability to emphasise the first beat in each bar
I think this would be great as it would also remove the arbitrary 125% restriction that's currently in place on the top end of practice mode.
I'd love to be able to practice scales and arpeggios in the app at a faster speed than currently possible using bpms as my measure (which would help me match my skills to the songs I'm trying to play). Thanks

Many scores of music don't have a suggested BPM number, but will instead use words like "Largo", "Andante", "Presto" etc..
When studying a new piece, if I see "Allegro", for example, I don't have the BPM range (about 120-168) memorized, so it would be great if, when adjusting the BPM in the metronome, the corresponding tempo word would be displayed. So, if I set the BPM to 130, I'll see "Allegro" displayed as well.
I would like to be able to select songs by BPM. Some of the songs are Too fast for a beginner. Very discouraging.
When speed increases in percents in practice mode, the increase gets larger when the speed increases. I'd rather have it so that I could control the speed increments by BPM. For example, increase the speed always by 3 BPM. This way the speed increase is less dramatic and frustrating than it is currently. Now I need to manually adjust the speed, which is really difficult to do accurately (there's another issue about that).

This above-requested feature will be so good...
- when I'm writing songs in notepad and need the metronome on
- when I'm practicing a song looking at the chords in chrome and need the metronome on
I'm sure it will have many more benefits.
thank you so much :)
I forgot to say that my suggestion was based on the comments for the suggestion "In song practice mode, widen the speed adjustment bar" by Mike, which is avaliable here: https://yousician.uservoice.com/forums/296820-feature-requests/suggestions/33009514-in-song-practice-mode-widen-the-speed-adjustment
Yousician uses percentage to set the tempo of a song, when in Practice Mode, but I think this is not very relative. Also, it could fumble users. I think using BPM (beats per minute) is better.
Thus, users can identify the tempo of a song.
And, users who have Premium or Premium+ can train the song by using a metronome.
The difference is that, on the normal tempo, the percentage is 100% on all songs, but the BPM is different.
So, BPM is better than percentage.
This might be helpful.
Display BPM (beats per minute. It would help to practice with the same speed outside of yousician.
