What's New in Version 1.03
iOS8 readiness updates
Fixed export problem when using emojis in choice titles
Fixed tap area issue with iPad wheel list grid
Very clean and easy to use. I got this app to replace large wooden spinning wheels that we had cumbering the floor of our offices. Our business is moving to a paperless system with iPads rather than paper and this was something we needed.
The app is very user friendly and I especially liked the establishment of Lives. I think that in future there should be the ability to add more than 3 different customizable responses as you may have a plethora of giveaways that require different text.
I spoke to the developer regarding cross platform sharing and he assured me that this would be an upcoming development over the next few months. Our company could use this as a way to track spins remotely and report them. Our current method requires the office personnel making tally marks each time someone spins it, which is tedious and unreliable. He is also working to fix the background orientation issue where the image does not rotate. I noted this when I placed the company logo in the background and had it on it's side when I shifted to landscape.
I've downloaded several looking for the best one, and this is by far it. I still had to rate 3 stars because of one problem though. When you change the probability of landing on a certain option- it will change ones that you have already decided. I don't know if that made sense- here. Say you made 4 options- 1,2,3, and 4. I want there to be a 50% chance of landing on 1, and a 30% chance to land on 2. That would leave 20% to divide up 3 and 4. Making it 50 for 1, 30 for 2, 10 for 3, and 10 for 4. However, when I make #1 50%, instead of it locking in that I want 1 to be 50, it makes its slice smaller when I increase a different one. so when I bump up 2 to 30%, it shrinks down 1 from 50% to like 45%. Not a huge problem- but it becomes more of a problem when u have more options and want each chance to be exact. Sorry for the really long review- however fixing that to where once you decide the probability of one it locks in, would be nice. And you should have a button to unlock and lock certain ones.
Good app for teachers
Great app. I love the customizability, ability to set of number of lives & probability for each option. I use it all the time when I teach and the students enjoy it.
It would be even better if, in addition to the "copy" function, there were a way to share or send a wheel from one device to another. After setting up a complex set of choices on my phone, it seems a needless waste of time to have to recreate the same wheel on my ipad. It also seems a shame to not be able to allow a friend or colleague to use it.
One other feature request - the ability to set the default number of lives for newly created choices to something other than infinity would save a lot of time when creating new wheels.
