Bluetooth Support Broken!!!
No update in 2 years! Bluetooth support between iPhone & iPad with iOS 11.x doesn’t work (they know it, it’s in their tech notes on the website). Peer to peer only works if your iPad has a data plan, if not, they will require a third device to host. Works perfectly in our studio when both can connect to the same wifi, but that’s no help on location. This is a deal breaker & we are now being forced to look elsewhere for an app that works for us...so sad. Been using this app for years (and loved it) & suddenly got screwed on 2 client shoots back to back before finding their tech notes. Wish I could just ask “please fix”, but another huge client shoot in a couple days is forcing us to move on. Not looking forward to the extra expense & down time of learning and teaching the rest of the crew the in’s & out’s of a new app...Ugh!!!!!!!!
So good, then...
This app worked so well with the iPhone as a remote, it made us look like pros. Then the bluetooth stopped syncing and it was a disaster. The remote, from an iPhone to an iPad in my case, has a section feature that makes doing retakes a breeze. The problem is the section feature only works with the remote. The iPad alone only scrolls and pauses. Doing a retake on a section can only be done by starting from the beginning and painfully waiting for the section to scroll. All this app needs is to have the full remote functionality when not using a remote.
Time saver. Money saver.
Once we got past a couple Bluetooth bumps (connecting my iPad to my DP's), we blew through eight scripts in five hours, setting up for three different actors. Entering scripts via the ProPrompter Producer website and synching to iOS devices made on-site updates simple [the client was sitting right there making changes as we shot!!] One of the most useful app purchase I've ever made.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
