Hi,

So no update in 9 months ...

One can work with the current version, but it's far for completee. There are, in my view, some critical missing features (relative to the computer version) that makes the application, as a learning tool, not complete.

That could be ok if there was regular updates, but there are none. This is annoying for a beta version.

Issues are scatered in the threads here, but I'm going to recap some. I try to order them by importance for the learning process, the first three one being the really, really important one:

- cannot zoom in/out in the partition (it's by default a bit too small for my taste);
- cannot select part of the song to be repeated over;
- doesn't have *any* of the "My Playground" statistics/badges available, the entire motivation process is missing!

Other:
- video introduction are not "counted" as seen and there is a bug where it repeats itself after finishing. You need to restart the app;
- cannot record;
- piano demo doesn't seem to work neither;
- missing tips pop up;
- can't buy song;
- missing icon on the song (video, accompagnment);

On the web site, using latest firefox one cannot select multiple filter, it's either level/accompagnment/genre, but not all of them.

So, do you agree that those features should be there ?

Do you expect to upgrade the IPad version any time soon, even a small upgrade would be nice ?

I must say that I like it nevertheless, but I've got the feeling that in the long run this is going to be a very annoying.

Hope that my comments will be helpful,

Regards,

GeorgeA

Hi,

Let me add my own priorities for the next iPad app release (when?):

I need to be able to scroll through the entire piece without being in play mode; now I can only get what fills one screen.

I need to be able to select sections to go through at a pace I select.

Best,

As far as I am aware the programmer responsible coding the iPad version unfortunately passed away earlier this year. There still hasn’t been any news about the future of the iPad app.

I agree with all the above. This is very disappointing, worthy of a money back cancellation. What is going on? I like the PS concept but the execution is sorely lacking.
