Cause You Can't Stop the Hustle

Narrative creep

Bought, tried and failed. I tried numerous times to activate the audio for the slate with no luck. Visiting the support site didn't help either. Also, the scaling of the slate on the ipad screen lost resolution when switching it to full-screen.

No Audio


I've been all over the limited settings of this slate and I am unable to hear any slate clap from this app. The screen flashes red, great, but no sound. Why does this exist? If you can't hear the slate clap, what's the point?

money down the drain.

Does not work with iphone6


The slate displays across the top of the phone and appears cropped. Slate will not rotate when the phone is rotated.
Very frustrating since my money seems wasted
