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!

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.

- 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!

Too buggy every time I need it to be reliable


When it works it’s great. Problem is that is usually doesn’t. Seems like every time a big gets worked out a new one is introduced. Between popping noises between tracks at fade out to the app changing my track volumes randomly it’s not worth risking my reputation on stage. I’ve been using it for a while but I’ve reached my tipping point. On to a different solution and can no longer recommend this.

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.
