Great App - for the most part

I have found the app easy to use and it has worked well for the most part with a few exceptions. I cannot get the fade in or overlap options to work at all. Also, our team name is changing and I can’t find a way to edit the team name without starting all over. I am also not finding it easy to share the team with someone else.

MBT's Mom,

Thanks for the feedback, for the team name change, swipe the team row from right to left and tap the edit button, if that doesn't work, please reach out to me. Highly appreciate your feedback!

Bluetooth playback is buggy

Updated my review to five stars after developer responded to the issues raised in my review and fixed the Bluetooth bug. This is now officially the best baseball DJ app in the App Store (and I have them all). I commend the developer for his responsiveness and willingness to accept constructive criticism and make his app better.

*UPDATE* While I appreciate the developers detailed response to my review and understand the limitations with the Bluetooth protocol, there are two other competing apps that don’t have this same issue. I tried them and they work just fine so they must be doing something to get around the Bluetooth limitations the developer mentioned. While this app is the best of the three apps I’ve tried in terms of UI and features, the fact that it can consistently play over Bluetooth with speakers that the other two competing apps have no problems with means that this app is unusable for me. I recommend that the developer research what the competition is doing and implement a fix. *END UPDATE*

Regular playback works fine. However, Bluetooth playback is very buggy and will not play back the names and only unmute halfway through the song. Other times it will not play back half a second of intro. All the other baseball DJ apps work fine so it’s definitely an issue with this app.

So easy to use and great support!

I love helping DJ the kids games, and this makes it so much easier! I can pull in their songs and have them cues up exactly where they want them. So nice being able to see the names and being able to reorder them for batting line up changes. And the option to have multiple playlists is great! And the app support is so wonderful! I had a question on how to do something and they literally answered me in less than a minute and were able to show me how to do something. Highly recommend!
