I’m happy to announce that the Windows 10 version of MobileSheets is currently going through the approval process on the Microsoft App store and will be available for testing soon. After the app is successfully published, a link will be provided for anyone that is interested in beta testing. The beta test will last for the next 3-4 weeks, after which the app will be made publicly available.
I also want to let users know that I’m going to be pulling the original MobileSheets for Android (the version released in 2011 with a green icon) off of the app store starting January 1, 2017. The newer MobileSheetsPro (which has a blue icon) is going to be the only Android version available after that. I do not have the bandwidth to support the older version, and it no longer supports the latest Android OS versions. After the app is pulled off the app store, users will no longer be able to download the app. I’m hoping that removing it from the app store will reduce confusion for new users who should be purchasing MobileSheetsPro.

Many users are updating their devices to Android 6.0, and they find that they can no longer load files in MobileSheetsPro that are saved on the removable SD card. The reason for this is that Google changed the paths to removable SD cards in Android 6.0 and this causes the file paths stored in MobileSheetsPro to no longer work. The good news is that MobileSheetsPro can easily fix this for you by performing the following steps:
MobileSheetsPro will detect all incorrect file paths, search for the actual file locations, and then fix the paths in the database. This same dialog can also be used to update file paths if a folder is renamed or moved, so it’s a very useful tool for users that manage their own files.

With the release of MobileSheetsPro version 1.5.1, every icon in the application has been replaced with sharper, higher resolution icons. Most of these were pulled from Google’s material design icon library so that they maintain a consistent look and feel. Others were redesigned from scratch to try and match the look and feel of material design icons. I believe the new icons are easier to see, more aesthetically pleasing and more intuitive with their meaning. Many, such as the new icon used to indicate when a song contains an audio file, is a huge improvement over the old in my opinion, and provides an extra level of polish in the application. I’m really looking forward to hearing feedback from users on all the changes.

A number of users have contacted me over the last few weeks with the same issue: Google Play will not let them install MobileSheetsPro on their device because it is listed as incompatible. MobileSheetsPro supports all tablets running 2.2 or higher and all processor architectures, so I knew that this couldn’t be right. MobileSheetsPro only has one limitation that I thought could be responsible - it only supports devices that are about 7” or larger.
Many users have requested support for cell phones, and I originally thought I was going to have to create an entirely separate version of MobileSheets for this to be possible. I’m happy to announce that with MobileSheetsPro version 1.3.3, you can now install it on cell phones and smaller tablets. Smaller or older cell phones with low resolution screens may not be compatible, but the majority of phones should be. All of the user interfaces were modified to fit on a cell phone screen. Some of them will appear quite small due to the restricted screen space.
If users are still experiencing issues with Google Play compatibility, please contact me at email@example.com and let me know. 2015 was a great year with the release of MobileSheetsPro, and with 2016 I plan to continually improve the app and see it released on Windows 10. Thank you everyone for your constant support and feedback.

Many users have reported lately that after they installed the OS update to 5.0.2 on their devices, their bluetooth pedals stopped working. This appears to be an OS problem, so there is nothing that can be changed in the software to address this. Additional information is available here: http://forums.androidcentral.com/samsung-galaxy-note-pro-12-2/551276-bluetooth-issues-after-5-0-2-a.html
If you have a Samsung device, particularly the Samsung Note Pro, do not install the 5.0.2 update if you use a bluetooth pedal. You will need to wait until Samsung releases a fix for this.
