Ratings and Reviews
Nice app but still needs some work
This app is exactly what I have needed for our plays. Songs and sound effects are easy to upload. However, it has a few issues. I cannot upload any songs into the intermission screen. It closes the program when I try to upload. Saving my project was not clear either. I lost some of my work the first few times. I hope they work out the bugs soon.
Simple and powerful!
This program is very simple and easy to use, and surprisingly versatile on what it can do. Great synchronization with iTunes, and all in all it is proving a great way to create highly custom sound tracks for our small-scale theater company!! I can imagine it would be useful for school productions, as well. Easy to use, intuitive. Thanks Belfry!
