Sorry for any of you that have had crashes with AVAid. It turns out that in iOS 13 or higher, they want the audio handled differently. I have submitted a bug fix in AVAid 2.4 which should hopefully go live in a few days.
Also, we noticed a similar issue with the AVAid for Apple TV and are working on a new version for that as well.
You will know AVAid is updated when the logo changes to this…
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.
We have completely revamped AV Aid in 2.2 with Swift programming. Along with this release we also now have ec-3 encoded mp4 files to test Dolby Digital 5.1 & 7.1 audio on the iPhone over AirPlay or HDMI adapters. Download AV Aid today at the App Store!
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.
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!
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.
