Bug Fixes and improvements
This app was THE reason I bought an iPad.
I have a residency on guitar and vocals, also travel a lot. My whole pad is on unreal book. Before that, it was two lugage cases. I also use my backing tracks with it. Never crashed....yet!!
My fellow musicians also use this app, so working together is easy peasy. Grate app, has had some problems but nothing that ever got in the way.
Could do with a BIGGER transport bar, at least a big play button, and then it could disappear after pressing play. Then reappear at the end of a track. That would be a great help, especially,when like me you play an in instrument, and want to hit the play button quickly with say a plectrum in your fingers your violin bow.
Otherwise...keep it up
A fantastic programme, I have all my PDF music files on board and now with the BlueBoard page turn I have no need to carry lots of music copies around. I also have it linked up to another iPad via Bluetooth for the bass player. Great!
