Feature Requests and Improvements
« on: February 11, 2014, 08:40:59 am »
thanks for this APP! I open this thread with few suggestions to potentially improving it:

- all scores should be editable for individual trainings without the "randomizer"
- bypass auto-lock delay of the device. Default delay for auto-lock on iPhone is one minute and therefore a bit annoying, without changing the setting on the device.
- would be REALLY cool, if this app would use the integrated mic to count the changes itself :-)

Cheers, motto12

There is one little bug:

Yes - I just found this same bug.  Please put this high on your "app to do" list.  Thanks!

Good ideas and sorry about the crashes. I'll email the developer today! J

I've got this when I enter 60 or more chord changes. First time I've actually managed to reach 60 changes  and I've managed it for 3 sets now (I'm on fire tonight!). Each time, the app has completely xx--xx out making a noise for about 15 seconds then crashing.

I don't know if this is supposed to happen, but when I go back to do the same chord changes, it won't let me, I get the message "No changes under 60! Please go to settings" so I can't use the app to practice those changes anymore (I want to do a couple more just to see if it's not just a one off). I can't see anywhere to reset my scores. Only thing I can see to get round this would be to uninstall and reinstall the app but then I'd lose the progress for my other chord changes.

Are you all using IOS or Android? I use the app everyday and haven't encountered either bug. Especially the 2nd one. I've entered scores above 60 without a problem. I'm on IOS.

I'm also using IOS, the latest version 7. something or other. It's on my iPad, rather than my phone (which is Android). Are you using the same version and is it iPhone or iPad?

Not sure if you're still having this issue.  On the iOS version I have, there is a setting button in the upper right corner, and one of the selections is for scores over 60, which by default is not checked.  I interpret that as a way of only giving you changes under that count, so once you've entered a score above 60, you'd no longer see those changes come up.  I haven't tried checking it, but I would expect doing so might fix that issue for you.

What I'd like to see is an easier way of selecting specific chord changes to practice.  Unless I'm missing something, the only modes are random and problem chords.  Sure I could uncheck all the chords except two or three to get only those to come up, but if I wanted to practice a specific set of five, I'd have to keep stopping and changing the configuration after each chord change.  It would be great to have a way to just pick specific chord changes and "queue" them up.

Another great feature would be some simple graphs to show progress over time, certainly not mandatory but might be motivational to see the counts zig zagging upwards.

Thanks for the free app, it's been a great help.

pretty cool app.
when I first loaded it I was thinking the mic in my iphone was going to pick up my strumming and automatically switch to a different set of chords.  that would be pretty slick
Id be willing to pay for an app that did something like that for sure!!

Edit***
Sorry.. I think I posted this in the wrong spot.
If a mod could move this to the suggestion area that would be great.
Thanks

awesome app, really love it and use it daily, but one major flaw (IMO) and one feature id like to see...

random is not remotely random unless you add/subtract chords,which kinda reshuffles the deck, as one other user said...

also, skipping chords would be ideal

while im here..... and customizable grouping chords (ie minor chords, 7th's or custom chord progressions)   

thanks!

It would be really, really helpful if there was a way to prevent repeats of the same pair of chords in a single session...

Alternatively, being able to create a manual list of chord changes to practice.

It's really frustrating when I sit down for a 5 minute practice, and 2 of the 5 sets end up being the same pair of chords!

once again the random aint random in fact its EXACTLY the same order (unless i add/remove chords) every time i open it, which sucks and is increasingly frustrating (ok ive got amin/c down, lets' move on  :o

notice that app's been out over a yr with no real updates.. fine for free app, but these are easy fixes that should be corrected relatively soon a paid app.

I agree with the last poster.  If possible a more random selector would be awesome. 


Also if possible I think having an average score would be awesome, rather than just a high score!


I would definitely pay a couple bucks for an one minute changes app that had a few more features such as average score, more randomness, ability to choose specific chords and practice changes that relate to that one cord.

A skip button could easily be placed b/w pause/start button and save button.... Would help with moving thru chords you dont need/want to practice and there srm there to squeeze it in

Again, fantastic app in theory but has a few essential tweaks that must be done tho this isnt necessarily one

Again i do find the far from random random chord feature to make the app a PITA to use but overall its helping me do what i need to do

Since im in a pissy mood  :) The tone is a very jarring fire alarm type bell.  Can Wep  find one a tick less brutal?

I thought it might be neat if there could be some preset sets of chord changes that correspond to the courses. For example being able to select 'beginner's course stage 3" and have C-Am, C-A, C-G, G-E and G-D as recommended in that lesson.
Thanks for the great app! It's very helpful.

I love the app. I use it almost daily, and thank you for making it free. I just have one wee suggestion for your consideration in future versions.

In addition to the + and - to tally our score, it would be awesome to have the option to tap on the white number box and have a 0 through 9 digit pad pop up for direct input of the score. It would just save a bit of time.

Thank you

It would be very helpful to have new chords directly in the "problem chords" section, so that when you add them you can practice them immediately (as they have "no score"). Thanks!

Then, It would be very cool if one could customize the sound, skip certain chord combinations, and enter the number of changes directly with a dial. These have been suggested also by other users, I list them again, just in case ;-)

Thanks for the app, I've been working with it for a while and there's one thing that has been bugging me.

New chord combinations don't come up under Problem Chords until you've set a score for them in the Random Chords section (at least I haven't found a way to get to them without doing that). So what I have ended up doing is going in and out of random chords repeatedly until there is a No Score. Then I run that for 1 minute and set it to 1. Then repeat until I have covered all the new chords, then I can go into the Problem Chord Area and start working on the new sets. Today I went into Random Chords about 100 times before I got to all the new chord changes (Stage 4).

I think the solution to this is fairly simple from a programming point of view - set the value of new chords to 1 automatically (maybe an option in settings that gives this ability? Add new chords to Problem Chords automatically.). Or allow the user to specify the chords they want to work on.

I have to say I do like using the app but I do have one beef with it. I'd like to be able to choose which chord pairs I want to practice. I'll choose "random" usually but I'll play D-E for example and soon after E-D will pop up. So good app but the option to choose chord pairs would make it great.
