Thanks to Apple for allowing background audio services on our favorite AV test generator again! For a while it was dis-allowed, but this latest version I asked if they would reconsider, based on the nature of the application and they just approved 2.3.1!
– Enabled background audio services so audio tests continue if the app is minimized or the screen is dimmed.
– Updated with Swift 3.0 programming.
Both Multi Path Audio Books and AV Aid are doing well with their latest versions. The bugs seem to be patched and things are running smooth again. We also have a secret Apple TV tvOS project in the works that should hopefully go live soon.
The good news is that AV Aid for Apple TV has been released. The bad news is, that…
- All button title text is disappearing on Apple TV devices. (not in simulator)
We are hastily working on a fix for this!
AV Aid, the audio visual technician’s test generator is coming soon to the Apple TV ! Now you can test your flat panel tv’s sound system with audio tests, and images to check color balance and image quality! And best of all, (for now anyway…) it’s FREE!
(Coming soon Late Jan 2016 or Feb!!!))
AV Aid – Audio Visual test generator iOS & tvOS
We are happy to announce that we’ve made some pretty significant improvements to our first app AVAid. Version 2.1.0 was approved in the Apple store today!
– Added ability to select custom test song from your music library.
– Now detects and displays possible video output resolutions from mobile device when connected.
– Added ability to output programmatically generated color bars for any available output resolution.
– You can continue to play test audio when the screen is dimmed (locked).
AV Aid is an Audio Visual technician’s toolkit and test generator.
When you connect your device with a VGA or HDMI cable to a projector or flatscreen monitor, AV Aid will detect and display all available output resolutions for your device. You can then select one of these custom resolutions and AV Aid will generate and output color bars.
The audio test generator is also expansive, including left, right, center, phase test, pink noise, white noise, sweep, a test song and more. You can now designate your own custom test song from your device’s music library.
There are several other handy AV features like flash light, strobe light, party light, IR detector, and cable connector resource guide.
We have a lot of big things in the works, plus it just makes sense, so we decided to make the multipathaudio.net site the central location for all things related to our interactive audio books.
Please visit multipathaudio.net to see the latest news in regards to Multi Path Audio.
For over a year I have been obsessed with learning how to code for the iPhone/iPad. It was a lot of hard work… plus, this was my first time learning a programming language. I think it’s safe to say I worked AT LEAST an average of 3 hrs every day for over 450 days on this concept. So, I am very exited to announce that our App just got approved for sale in the iTunes app store for both iPhone and iPad! It’s called Multi Path Audio: Books. As far as I know there is nothing like it in the app store until now! If you have ever listened to an audio book check this out…
Get Multi Path Audio: Books for FREE today! Or visit multipathaudio.net for screenshots and news.
Each Multi Path Audio book is a multiple choice ‘book on tape’ with many different paths to take, ways to win, titles to earn, and ways to lose! The stories can be played on the iPhone or iPad using touch OR hands-free with voice recognition. At it’s core it is an entertaining audio-book and a hands-free time killer for those long trips in the car, plane, or bedtime.
The fun part is that you play each audio book again and again, trying out different paths. The way Multi Path Audio works is just like listening to a regular audio-book, except that you will have the ability to make a selection based on which way you would like to go. You can make this selection by either, speaking or touching the screen.
Many other books will be released we anticipate on a monthly basis, with different authors and various genres. As new stories are available a link to download them will appear inside the app. Play each story three times for free! Then if you like, for around $1.99 you can purchase unlimited replays to experience all of the different endings for that story.
The app ships with our first story titled The Purple Island Glow-Grubs written by Dave Strand and Kelly Levy with narration by Peter Hicks. It is a fun sword and sorcery style adventure about a search for glowing worms on a dangerous island. It contains over 2.5 hours of audio, with 9 ways to win and 21 ways to lose! Each story line takes roughly 10-20 minutes.
Download it TODAY for free at the iTunes app store. Just search for Multi Path Audio or follow this link!
Also… I hope my friends and family will take a moment and give me a positive rating on the App store (if you enjoy the app).
After over a year of production, writing, and coding, in January of 2014 we will release our second app to the App store titled Multi Path Audio : Books. More about this app when it is live.
For the past year we have been hard at work on a secret project. It should launch in November (2014) so stay tuned!
