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:

When there are no chord combinations left to play the app keeps ringing and crashes

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
Dave

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!
