Needs some work
You can listen to judges tapes so it works. It would be great to have an option to download the tapes over WiFi so I could listen to them offline without using data or waiting for it to stream. The other suggestion would be to see scores and recaps. The website has this but I would love to see this transfer over to the app.

We'll work on the option to download over WiFi, thanks for the suggestion! Scores and Recaps are available through the app, but they must be released before they'll show up.
Ok but could be much better
When you have the app open and don’t go to any other apps, it usually does what it’s supposed to. However, being the only way for us to hear judges’ tapes, there is a lot that could be improved.
1) Work on keeping the audio going while the phone screen is turned off or when switching between apps (e.g. recap, email, and audio). If you don’t keep the app on the screen, the audio stops after about 15 seconds and then you have to restart the app. This means it drains your battery as you listen to it because the screen has to stay on the whole time.
2) Speaking of the screen, please change the back of the screen to black instead of white (and then use white text). White drains phone batteries quicker than any other color, and since we have to keep the screen on the app currently or it resets the app, black would really help save our batteries at the end of a long day of band.
3) After clicking on the tape to listen, it takes either several seconds or clicking multiple times to get the audio to actually start. Can this please be fixed?
4) Have a way to save or export audio. I’d like to be able to share the audio with others who do not have competition suite (e.g. other staff and students), and currently I have no way to do that.
These little changes would make us band instructors much happier! 😊

Thanks for the feedback! I believe the primary issue is actual because of the new iOS version. If you upgrade to the latest version of iOS (just came out November 7), the ap should begin working in the background again. As for the other requests, we're already working on them and hope to have it available very soon. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need anything else. -Matt
Still a great app to get my band's competition tapes. Great to now get the recap on the app. However, as someone with multiple organizations and as a judge, I’ve lost the ability to switch between my groups. That was a big feature to me, and now has made this app useless for my needs.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
