« What took you soo long? »
We initially planed to release it on both Android Market and Appstore this year.
We will eventually release it, !along with the source code!, but no more commitment about the date. The app is constantly evolving and other business tasks require all our attention for the moment, which is a good news for us 🙂
Even if the app is not finished yet, we do believe it is ready to be release « into the wild ». Just remember: no support, no doc, just the app.
So, we decided to make the app available on our site. You can grab the Android version or the Windows/Mac/Linux version available here:
– Have a look at The ‘More’ tab. There, you can ‘Take a tour’ of the app.
The tour will give you some basic information about the app (the tour visuals are not yet there, but the explanations are ok)
Notes for Mobile users:
– Popup menu is displayed using the swipe left/right gesture.
Notes for Windows/Mac/Linux:
– Requires Adobe Air Runtime to be installed on your machine. It’s lightweight, free and simple to install.
Get Adobe Ari here: http://get.adobe.com/air/
– Swipe gesture are not working on this release, so you wil have to SHIFT CLIK on music track to display the popup menu.
Yes, the app is ready and working on IPhone (we use it), but we are not able to release the signed IPA for the moment. The best way would be to submit it on the store. We will eventually do it, but, again, no commitment about the date.
In the mean time, here is a version of the app that might work on jailbroken devices : BringMeBeatz for jailbroken IDevices.
Any feedback about that would be appreciated.
