- fixed a bug where favourites added in shuffle mode were incorrect
- updated Audiobus to 2.1.16
Latest update made the app better than ever! NES tracks play better, and if the music was interrupted by another audio app like a music player you would have to exit and reopen the app in order for the sound to play again, not anymore. Though when I opened Periscope, it cut the Gambi music off and couldn't start again unless I closed and reopened the app like before..
I can now pause the app with my inline control for my headphones and continue listening. Before if I paused the app I couldn't un-pause it, requiring me to exit the app and open again. It's working so much better now and I'm extremely grateful for this. It took a while for this update but it was worth it!
Thanks for the hard work, I hope this app continues to be supported'
I've have a few minor gripes with this program recently. The iTunes file sharing thing is (at least for me) a bit more complicated than I expected it to be. Also, you can't delete the pre-made songs or any songs for that manner very easily. I hope you can develop a more user-friendly interface so I don't have to rip my hair out trying to learn how to do stuff ;) Thank you and keep up the good work!
Huge fan of GAMBI. Plays music from all of my favorite classic consoles and chiptune artists. Great interface, no weird playback issues. If you've been look for an app that plays the original sound files from your favorite games, grab this now.
