Sound Control System Designed By Professionals For Professionals

Show Cues runs your entire show with a device you already carry with you—an iPhone/iPad or iPod Touch!


What’s the difference between Show Cues and other sound devices? About $1500! Show Cues doesn’t run lights, flash pots or make coffee. But, if you’re looking for something super-simple and sure-fire, this App really does the trick. In fact, you can bundle Show Cues with the purchase of a new iPad and it would still cost less than other sound devices on the market.

- Loads Any Track or Playlist From Your iDevice
- Play/Pause, Fade-Out And Auto-Pause At Next Track
- Real-Time Clock
- Countdown Timer With Warning
- Indicator Lights Show Playback State
- Large Track Title Display
- Works Manually Or With Remote Control (remote sold separately)
- Plugs Into Any Sound System (cables sold separately)

From MUM Magazine September 2012
Carl Andrews is not only a designer and programmer of iDevice apps, he is also a working professional magician. When his friend, Shawn Popp, suggested that he create an app to play music cues, he went at it with passion. The result is the most professional program I have ever seen called Show Cues. There are so many features to this app, I won’t have enough time to go through them all. Wonderfully written manual and a professional thought out program makes this a must for all performers. Even buying an iPad along with this program and remote will be cheaper than buying a machine that costs over $1000. The bonus: this does it easier!

Great App


I am new to show cueing And this app made learning very simple. The app is intuitive and very user-friendly. I have nothing but good to say about this product.

Great app - useless with current remote

Bought this app and have been toying around with it for months - the app itself is top notch and works great. the remote on the other hand I used for the first time over the past couple days and I have completely given up on it - it’s 100% unreliable. sometimes it would work fine right away - other times it would not work at all - I have another RF remote I use with my laptop to run sound off of that and I ended up using the laptop instead as it works every single time even from 150 feet away. I saw on the magic cafe forums that a new remote is in the works - I hope it’s as powerful as the one I use with my laptop - Keyspan RF Remote For Front Row - the current remote is a complete waste of money. and makes this app useless - thank you for the hard work on the app - and I imagine it’s difficult to manufacture a physical product like a remote - best of luck - and I look forward to the new remote that you have in the works. I’ll definitely try it out and reconsider my review.

I wish I had all the money back that I spent on other programs and devices! I could buy a new show. Show Cues is the answer! I have complete control of my music in the palm of my hand or pocket or table top. I have my crib sheets pop up on the screen and the timer to keep me in check. These are just a few of the many things you can di with Show Cues. If you are struggling with your music or are thinking of adding music to your presentations Shoe Cues is your answer! What are you waiting on? Down load it now, you will wonder how you ever did without it. I forgot to tell you how EASY it is to use. It is so easy a monkey could use it but don't let that fool you it runs like a fine tuned engine.
