I was planning on putting out an update to everyone this weekend. As usual, everything is taking longer than I had hoped/predicted. I'm currently finishing up some things in the new song editor, including the new screen for setting the crop points (squares that you can drag from the corners/sides, like what you would find in any photo editor). I still have a number of loose ends to finish up, but most of the large code changes are complete. Unfortunately, I still have a lot of internal testing to complete before I have something stable enough to release as a beta. I'll try to have a more detailed write-up tomorrow after I make some more progress. I really appreciate everyone's patience, and I apologize for taking so long in getting this update complete. I hate to drag people along, and it definitely weighs on me knowing that I've set expectations about when it would be done, but haven't come close to meeting any of the dates I've put forth. I wish I could just take a week off of my day job to finish this update once and for all, but unfortunately, I can't do that anytime soon. I'll do my best to finish it as soon as I can.

Mike,
I'm with everyone else - don't beat yourself up. The fact that you are very, VERY up front about what is going on is more than appreciated! You do a fantastic job with the app and I LOVE IT! I am on pins and needles waiting for the update and will be super excited when I get. I have a Nexus 10 and I'm willing to beta test if you need me. Just let me know!

Look, many of us are REALLY looking forward to these updates -- they sound great. But, don't roll it out until they're ready. We'll still be here, Mike.

Hi Mike,

Just want to add my voice to the others to say how excited I am for the update! I'm particularly interested in the MIDI capabilities as I want to trigger Bank and Program Change messages as I load each song in my set list. If you need more Beta testers, I'm available!

Thanks!
Tom

For my part, I would be perfectly content to buy the new version separately. Your App is of such great value that I would not hesitate to fork over the $$ again. As I see it, you will have put so much effort into the next version that I will donate the price even if I can just update.
And having the option to run both versions in parallel while making the transition would provide a valuable fallback if something unexpected happens.

As an aside, what kind of additional HW will be needed for the MIDI interfacing?
Electric Guitar, popular music from 50s to 80s
Line6 Pod HD w/ Shortboard MkII
Galaxy Tab 10.1N

Looking forward to the update... I've been relying more on a competitor app to use some of the features that you are adding. But it looks like when you're done with the update, you'll be enough features up on the competition that it will unquestionably be worth the effort to move my entire library over to Mobilesheets. I also really appreciate the communication offered over the forum in regards to troubleshooting, tips and advice. That's something that my other app vendor doesn't really do. While your forum has been very helpful in my troubleshoot general issues with the other app, I look forward to being able to make better use of your forum when I transition over to mobilesheets. Keep up the good customer support. It really shows.

I'm also very interested in the MIDI capabilities. There are other apps that also have this functionality, but many of them initiate the MIDI commands immediately when pulling up the chart, meaning that if I want to look ahead at the next song in the playlist, or turn I the page 8 measures early to go to the next song, my sounds change with it, making the feature more of a liability than an asset. I'm hoping for the inclusion of a movable button that can be be pressed to initiate the MIDI command, which gives me control over when the sounds on my keyboard are changed.

I've had my eye on these forums for about a year now and am excited about the final product finally being so close to completion!
