Misleading promo video
Too good to be true. The app’s promo video makes it seem like it comes loaded with a ridiculous number of classic chiptune tracks from yesteryear. Not the case at all. I’m assuming there was a previous copyright violation issue and the unlicensed tracks had to be removed. There are no tracks from Sonic, Duck Tales, or Kirby. However, if you’re a fan of RoboCop you’re in luck. I can’t say for sure what the circumstances for the missing content because I don’t see any indication in the version history as to why the songs featured in the video aren’t in the actually app. The promo video should be updated to reflect accessible content.
1 star for inter-app audio (IAA) functionality. Just wish I could remix classic SEGA tunes in AUM without jumping through hoops to get the files into the darn thing.
UPDATE: After looking through the online support materials I see there are ways to add files. Again, I bought the app expecting to have immediate access. There is no indication in the description on the App Store page, nor is there any indication in the promo video that this is the case. Updated from 1 star to 2 because with more effort it will be more useful and enjoyable.
Read before buying
I was happy when I found this app but as soon as I opened the app I was immediately disappointed. The app display not only doesn’t fill the screen on my XS Max, which would have been ok, but the screen is chopped off at the bottom so I can’t even read the buttons on the bottom and can just barely see the blue glow so I can navigate the app barely but this is inexcusable. If the app was abandoned or something I could maybe understand it but if the developer is having a sale on the app, they’re obviously still trying to make money from the app, so they should be fixing the app. I’ll gladly give this app 5 stars if it’s fixed but future customers should be alerted to the current state of the app.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
