Press Play and Go
By X3 Pty Ltd
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Note: This app does not sell nor provide any music files. All music must be purchased and supplied by the user. Les Mills music can only be obtained by registered instructors either directly from that company or authorised distributors.
Press Play and Go is a music manager for group fitness instructors. It allows playlists to be created from your existing music as well as all fourteen Les Mills programmes. It recognises both the original and cover versions so you can create classes most suitable for the music licences where you teach.
You can add breaks or timed pauses between songs and have a visible (and optional audible) countdown before the music starts - handy for changing weights or a drinks break. You always know when the class will finish which means never running over time again.
The Les Mills quarterly releases are automatically created from your supplied music - including bonus tracks. Simply rip your instructor CD to iTunes or download the digital files and sync them with your device; the app will display the titles and artists and put the songs in the correct order. Creating your own mixes is simple as only the songs you have available for each track in that programme are suggested. Changing the songs in mixes is even easier.
The multi-song groups of BODYJAM and BODYBALANCE are handled in the same easy manner. You can easily create playlists for the express class formats. It supports the new and previous formats for BODYATTACK and both the 70/30 and Athletic class types for BODYSTEP.
X3 Pty Ltd has no connection at all to Les Mills other than participating in a lot of their classes.
All your music remains available in the iPod music library so no additional space is used.
What's New in Version 1.94
Bug fix to prevent the incorrect song playing when starting a class.
Purchased Press Play and Go almost three years ago but I never got around to reviewing it. Doing it now - just a week after the BodyPump 100 launch - because the music runs about 53 minutes with no breaks built in. I can't imagine how I could finish the class on time if I didn't use PPG. I always thought it was super easy to make mixes with the app - and I'm a total technophobe. Easiest thing ever. Don't know how I got by without it,
Issue with app?
I have this app on iPhone and an iTouch ... has always worked wonderfully. This week, however, I cannot get it to pull music. Is anyone else having an issue? I emailed their support several days ago and have received no response.
It's so easy to create new playlists the songs are in each track category.
