What's New in Version 3.2
NEW FEATURE RELEASE
- IMPROVED RESPONSE TIME ON BUTTON TAP!
We've been promising this for some time and apologize for the delay, but you'll get better response when you tap to play a button.
- AIRPLAY SUPPORT!
We added the airplay icon to the right of the master volume so you can broadcast through any airplay compatible device.
- NEW EDIT MODE FOR ASSIGNING BUTTON CONTENT!
Now you tap an Edit button at the top right of the nav bar to assign sounds and other button content. This speeds up the process compared to tap-hold. The background color changes to remind you to tap Done when finished editing.
- NEW NAV BAR SESSION TIMER!
We've added a session timer on the nav bar in big green numbers to let you know how long you've been using the app from the first tap of a button. Perfect for timing the length of your events. Tap the timer to reset to zero.
- ENLARGED STATUS BAR AND SOUND COUNTDOWN ON BUTTON!
We've enlarged the button status bar and count down time on the face of the buttons to make it easier to read at a glance.
- DEDICATED PORTRAIT OR LANDSCAPE SUPPORT!
We added a "Portrait or Landscape" setting so user has control of layout changes when flipping the orientation of the app.
Functional but needs work
This app is functional but leaves a lot to be desired. Simple UI upgrades would be nice, such as the simple ability to reorganize the placement of the sounds on the slate; adjusting the image location within the icon (as opposed to requiring a square image or distorting the selected one); a larger-sized "fade out" button; and the ability to switch between slates would be great. Sounds play faster now after last update but still are lagging and even cut off through AirPlay. This may be an Apple issue but does not happen with any other audio streaming apps.
Don't buy it!
I bought this application before deploying then once overseas I removed the apps I wasn't using during my stay. Now that I'm back I want to re-install the app on my 1st gen iPad and they won't even allow me to do that because it requires ios 6.0 or higher. Are you serious? They are just stealing people blind. I want my money back! This is clearly a scam. Do not buy this unless you buy a new iPad every year!
I rely on this app for live band backing track samples, slow response time on button press....then I see this update that appears to fix that issue, but its only available on iOS6, which is not available for my generation 1 ipad.
