Produced by Figure 53.
- Fixes a crash that could occur when closing a show.
- Fixes a bug in Show Mode in the player that could cause "New Show" to appear where the show name should be displayed.
- Fixes a bug that made a hit unplayable in certain cases after a show resumed from being paused.
- Fixes an issue that made it difficult to open the Sidebar.
- Fixes a bug that prevented the Edit Cue "-/+" cue region stepper control from working correctly for fixed count looping cues.
- The "Pause/Resume Show" remote control action is now ignored unless at least one cue or hit is running. This fixes an issue where a show could end up in a "paused" state without any visual indication if this action were triggered when no cues or hits were running.
- When editing a text field, it is now easier to end editing and dismiss the on-screen keyboard by tapping outside of the field.
Ratings and Reviews
I use go button extensively. However I have had a few instances where audio files will suddenly show up as missing. The iPad will run one show perfect, sit motionless and uninterrupted and then in the middle of the next show a few hours later the files are gone. This is obviously a major issue and one I’m not sure how to solve. I’ve learned to always have a computer running in tandem just in case the problem arises. Other than that complaint, and it is a big one, LOVE this app.
UPDATE: I discovered this is an issue with iCloud syncing music libraries and mysteriously deleting files. Changed my review to 5 stars, no problems!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback, and I'm really sorry you've been having trouble with your audio going missing!
If you are using tracks from the Music library on your iPad, we strongly recommend that you instead import your audio files into Go Button directly if at all possible. Then when you create your cues, select your audio from the "Documents" tab in the media picker. This way your files are kept safe and can't get lost.
You can read about various ways to import files here in the User Manual: https://figure53.com/docs/gobutton/v3/getting-started/working-with-audio/
The Music library is convenient, but unfortunately problems can sometimes happen because iTunes and the iOS Music app can change the library at any time without warning. It helps if you make sure your tracks all have unique Album, Artist, and Song names so that Go Button can find the new track if the unique ID does end up getting changed.
Please write us at email@example.com any time if you have more questions!
What a great tool!
This is everything you need to run sound cues for your show. Run it from your iPhone or an iPad. I can’t say enough about it. The free version works fine for me (small theaters, nothing too crazy). If your organization can pop for the full version $99 I think), please do it. These guys deserve it!
I have been out of the theatre biz for a few years. I did a show at the local college to help them out and this app was amazing for running the show from my iPhone with no issues. Love the crossfade queue option. Will purchase pro if I do any more productions. Thank you for this great tool.
