Bug fixes and improvements
Ratings and Reviews
Can’t Recommend / Very Buggy App
I’ve had the Parrot Teleprompter app for over a year now. Was working pretty well (with remote) with my iPhone. But last few months the software has been “buggy” (best way to describe). Similar to what others have reported (script jumping to beginning when using remote to scroll back a few lines). As well as copy/paste functions reformatting my scripts (spaces and line breaks removed). Some other bugs as well when trying to edit script in app. Did notice a new vs release (vs 2.2.4) came out in feb 2021. I’m going to try the newest version but the app has been so buggy lately I just can’t recommend.
This app was amazing. Especially since its free, had no ads and worked well. Key word though, “was”.
About 3/4 weeks ago, they rolled out an update that “modernized” the way the app looked. The design was still the same, but functionality and buttons were moved around. That’s fine, whatever. The issue was that it broke support for ALL Bluetooth remotes. Absolutely none of the presenter remotes I had worked anymore.
They released an update that fixed that problem, but there’s still a major issue that when I click the scroll up button 6 times in a row, it backs out of the script I’m reading into the Home Screen of the app. To prevent it, I have to click up 5 times, pause for 3 seconds, then repeat til I scroll up as high as I need to.
On top of that, I can’t hold the scroll up or down button anymore to scroll infinitely. I can only single tap.
Garbage updates. I wish I could download older versions and go to a version that’s 2 months old or so. Developers (if you even read these), do yourselves a favor and rollback the updates to the version you had before you broke remote support, and you’ll see your rating go from 2.1 back to the high 3’s and even 4.
I’ve written numerous reviews for this app in my head, but kept telling myself that it couldn’t be as bad as I thought. So I kept using the app and giving it more time. I just got done filming a 13 part class using the padcaster teleprompter and this app as a companion. The app is as bad as I thought.
Once I finished my last segment, I stood up, turned off the app, and said “I’ve had to overcome this app the whole shoot”. Incredibly buggy and frustrating app to use. It cost me a lot of time having to restart the process because of its instability and quirks.
I was using it with the padcaster teleprompter Bluetooth remote which only made things worse. The remote worked well, but the app randomly changed how it would respond to the buttons I pressed. In some cases resuming play would start the script scrolling, other times the same button click would take me back to the list of scripts (which meant I had to get up and set things up again).
After enough time with the app to make an assessment, I plan to pay for an alternative. I appreciate that this app is free so you can try it out, but it’s really not where it needs to be to be a reliable solution.
