New update slow
Love the app, has been very useful for the application it's used in.
We use the app with an ion console, mostly used for playback of cues.
The newest update has been problematic, its slow, has a hard time connecting to the console (via wifi) when connected it has a very obvious delay when playback is used. (which causes cue jumps which can be a nightmare when using in any production). Also will drop the connection in the middle of playback. Thought this could be a problem with my wifi, after checking into it, the only changes have been the update of the app.
Thank you, hopefully these issues can be remedied soon
Amazing but needs an update
This app has saved me hours from running back and forth to the board. It also allows me to record cues in the house without moving the board down. The only downfall is that it hasn't been updated since the iPhone 4 and we have now reached the iPhone 6! The app still hasn't been updated for a bigger screen. I hope that happens sometime in the future. It is really annoying because I spent $50 on this app and it is not $50 app quality.
Capable and Convenient
I have been using this app for several years and have been thrilled with its functionality. It is a tremendous savings over a traditional RFR and is extremely capable with the ability to patch and park! When I combine it with a VPN it has even saved me several trips back to the theatre as I make minor tweaks from my phone. This app is a must have for anyone with an Eos family console!
