Needs bug patches
Smooth prompting, and the remote is nice, albeit costly for something other apps utilize an iPhone for.
for this being a Listec brand app, i was expecting a bit more.
I was using it on my iPad, and noticed several bugs:
the min and max scroll speed were unable to be adjusted, the app would freeze and crash when trying to open a script about 25% of the time, and upon activating the Bluetooth remote after it goes dormant will also cause the app to crash, which is not good during a live event.
Some features to consider:
Wireless script syncing, and an option to link a computer or a phone for a viewscreen of what is being shown on the screen. I have to have direct line of sight to see where the scroller is at with the talent. being able to to observe and edit the script remotely would be better than having to have contact with the tablet for on the spot changes.
Touch speed control with the Bluetooth remote. for the price of the remote, i was expecting more than just a wireless keyboard. it has a touchpad that isn't utilized with the iPad, which seems like a wasted opportunity to add more refined scroll speed control as opposed to the "speed button up/speed button down" control.
The custom flags are great, especially when you're using the app for a notecard style prompting situation.
Randomly speeds up
Loved the app but now after the update it randomly speeds up half way through long scripts and as far as I know there is no way to fix this
