I anticipate release on Monday 4/15.  You are welcome to try the beta if you would like.  It seems stable at this point, but I would love to get a few more testers that would have a use for the new functionality.  I can send a testflight invite to you if you are interested.

yeah... sorry on the export without songs.  The app cannot move anything in iTunes and imported song sharing from device to device would get me in heat with the record industry.

On the suggestion... that is already in beta right now.  If you would like to give it a shot, let me know and I will send an invite to the email you registered with.

I believe you are encountering a bug that I have fixed in the last month or so...  can you try to update your app to the latest version from the app store and see if the issue goes away?

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions / Amoyshare getting tricky
« on: April 04, 2019, 07:19:59 am »
The free video converter at Amoyshare that a lot of Android folks use has changed the interface just a bit to trick more people into buying their pro version...

But if you tap the double down arrow below the listed pro versions, it slides to reveal that they still have the 128k mp3 version for free download.  I attached a picture of the button you need to tap.

Hmmm, I will have to take a look at that use case.  In trying to keep the interface as simple as possible, there are definitely a few corner cases that are not handled well.  Your idea to add a little dead space to the end should work, but I will add your use case to my list and see if I can find a way to handle it better.

The beta release today, Apple version 2.5.13 has the multiple pages feature for all pages of the app...  Please let me know how it works for you!!

The hardest part I always had each season was getting the players to pick their songs so get that bug in their ear as soon as you can. 

Couple other things to consider:
Source of music... on Apple, you can use Apple music, purchases from iTunes, or imported song files. On Android, their are no subscription options so you have to purchase songs somewhere, or use a youtube converter or something like that.
Do you want announcements and if so what type?  The easiest announcements in the app are text-to-speech, but they sound kinda robotic.  You can also find a coach or parent with a good voice and record them in the app.  Third option is to pay a pro like Casey Motter at allstarintros on Facebook to record them for you and import to the app.

Lastly... I would avoid using the app on your primary phone so you can pass off a device to another person in case you can't make the game.  The app does work on Android devices back to 4.1 and Apple ones back to iOS 9.3.5 so you can use an older phone or tablet that you have laying around or can buy refurbished.

There is not much configurability to the fade and announcement ducking.  I tried to best fit the majority of situations and keep the configuration simple.  There is a fade seconds setting on the config page that will allow you to speed up the fade seconds, but the lowest setting is .7 seconds.  I could add an option to disable the fade completely, but that would be a global setting as I would rather not add a config option to each song to avoid complicating the interface for a very specific and so far rare use case.

If you would like to email me a song, announcement, and a screen shot of how you configure it.  I can try to duplicate what your hearing and see what I can do to improve it.  Email those to

For purchased and imported songs, that would be possible... for Apple music songs, not so much.  Which type of songs are you blending with?

Just to wrap up this conversation... the file not found error with Apple music songs was an issue with songs added from a playlist that had not been added to the itunes library individually.  I found a workaround for this issue and released it in version 2.5.11.  I also found a way to allow mixing of Apple music songs.  That feature was also included in this latest release.

Yes, you can play songs on all pages from any start point you want...

Tap the arrow to the right of the player or song row to bring up the song configuration.  Set the 'cue' time to where you want the song to start.  You can set the cue time by using the plus and minus buttons, dragging the digits up or down, or by playing the song to where you want and tapping the button with the open bracket on it - '['

Honestly...  if you could see the layers of instability Apple introduces between the device and the bluetooth speaker you would have zero confidence for game day.   The long aux cable is the way to go!

There are a few bluetooth speakers that don't get along well with iOS 12 and mixed audio sources.  I expect this will be fixed in iOS 13, but in the meantime you will probably just need to use a long aux cord to your speaker rather than bluetooth.

This was found to be a bug in the Android version of the app and has been fixed in release 2.5.10 which should be available in the Google play store today. 

Thanks for reporting the issue!

Release Notes / New beta version 2.5.11 for iOS devices
« on: March 19, 2019, 05:18:46 am »
There is a new beta version 2.5.11 of Walkout Song DJ for Apple devices available today 3/19/19.

The primary feature of the beta is support for mixing Apple Music songs with announcements. For Apple music subscription songs, the playback interface from Apple is very limited and required a more complex approach.  I think I have most of the kinks worked out on that and a beta is finally ready.  Message me your email address here or on facebook if you would like to participate. 

The only known issue with the mixing feature beta is some muting of the announcement on a small number of bluetooth devices combined with iOS 12.  The feature is not workable with those devices unless you use a long aux cable rather than bluetooth.
