Make your players feel like the big leagues with Gametime Announcer. With Walkup songs*, specialty songs and player announcements, everyone will know who is stepping up to the plate.
This version of the app is perfect for schools, city parks, tournaments and showcases.
All aspects of the game can be announced including the starting lineup, pinch hitters, courtesy or pinch runners, player position/lineup changes, the score and the upcoming batters in the next inning.
The app protects from inadvertent or accidental sounds from occurring during play.
General announcements can be typed in and instantly announced to the audience. Up to 8 announcements can be saved to be used each game or new messages entered on-the-fly.
Six types of specialty songs can be queued for special music to be played for homers, hit-by-pitch, mound visits, walks, special effects and pump-up or rally moments.
With our built-in song editor, you can select any portion of the song* to be used as the walkup song. The song editor can also be used to shorten the intro and/or outro of songs in the playlist. You only have a couple minutes between innings, so our software lets you get to the part of the song you want to enjoy.
The software allows for lineups with any number of batters and a maximum roster size of 40 players per team. Position designations for designated hitter, extra hitter and extra outfielder are also optional.
*all songs used in app, for walkups, specialty and playlists, must be owned or purchased through iTunes.
Feature: New look for playing the walkup and/or announcements. Just a single button labeled "Announce Batter" that you drag to the microphone where you find 7 choices: Announce with walkup, no walkup, just name & number, etc. This is a MUCH more simple process for the user.
Feature: Auto-fadeout - set the amount of seconds the walkup song should automatically fade after starting. This is for users who want the app to always just play 5 seconds, 10 seconds or other amount of time should start fading out after walkup song starts.
Feature: Cloud song start/stop access - when you add a new song the system automatically looks up that song in our cloud database to see if we have suggested edit points. Those edit points can be altered and will not be overwritten. Users edit points are automatically uploaded to the cloud database where, after moderation, it will be available to help other users who pick the same song.
Bug fix: ShuttleJog wheel had a problem with the jog setting. Fixed.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
