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.

    Dave, I have a 5S, iPad Air and Apple hdmi adapter. I have tried all res settings and can not output any of the test patterns except the firs color bar screen with the star and square on it. All the different audio tests work perfect tho…. Any ideas what’s up? Thanks, Rod

      Ah.. I will try to make that more clear in future updates. When you connect to the external monitor, if you don’t select any resolutions, and select the top option which I think is called ‘mirror’ instead it should duplicate whatever is on your phone and project exactly what you see. Then you should be able to navigate to the pictures and swipe to go through them. They will not be the exact resolution, only the generated test pattern will give you true sizing resolutions. We are looking at a way to improve this for future releases, and add all of the photos at all desired resolutions.

    I have purchased your program, and it is quite handy with the properly generated test screens for each resolution. What are the chances that we could output the other test images and videos at a selected output resolution? That would be pretty awesome.

      That would be pretty awesome. I thought pretty hard about that one too. It’s very hard for me to anticipate and prepare an image for every possible resolution, so I have decided to ‘generate’ that test image instead. I might eventually generate the other types of test images, and improve on the existing test image… but for actual photos, I’m not quite sure how to pull that off yet. I could start with a very large image and scale it down, but I don’t want to try and export a hundred different images for every single resolution, so I would have to scale and squish the image to fit. At any rate, that’s a great idea and I’ll keep it on the list of proposed improvements until I figure out the best way to pull it off.

      Until then, if you mirror the image you can still use the non-generated photo images to test, though they will not be the right resolutions.
