- Plugs Into Any Sound System (cables sold separately)

From MUM Magazine September 2012
Carl Andrews is not only a designer and programmer of iDevice apps, he is also a working professional magician. When his friend, Shawn Popp, suggested that he create an app to play music cues, he went at it with passion. The result is the most professional program I have ever seen called Show Cues. There are so many features to this app, I won’t have enough time to go through them all. Wonderfully written manual and a professional thought out program makes this a must for all performers. Even buying an iPad along with this program and remote will be cheaper than buying a machine that costs over $1000. The bonus: this does it easier!

Great app - useless with current remote

Bought this app and have been toying around with it for months - the app itself is top notch and works great. the remote on the other hand I used for the first time over the past couple days and I have completely given up on it - it’s 100% unreliable. sometimes it would work fine right away - other times it would not work at all - I have another RF remote I use with my laptop to run sound off of that and I ended up using the laptop instead as it works every single time even from 150 feet away. I saw on the magic cafe forums that a new remote is in the works - I hope it’s as powerful as the one I use with my laptop - Keyspan RF Remote For Front Row - the current remote is a complete waste of money. and makes this app useless - thank you for the hard work on the app - and I imagine it’s difficult to manufacture a physical product like a remote - best of luck - and I look forward to the new remote that you have in the works. I’ll definitely try it out and reconsider my review.

Great App!

This app far surpasses the music cue solutions I have used in the past. I've used Virtual Sound Man w/mini-disc and until now, that was the best solution for my needs. I do comedy Hyp shows and use a variety of music and effects. Show Cue allows me to re-sequence or edit the show at will. The internal adjustments are killer. Adjust the starting volume, the fade in-out time for each individual audio file. I wish I had found this sooner. I'm retiring and cutting back on shows but now there's one less problem to deal with. THANKS Carl for Show Cue!!

Great when it works...

...but it doesn’t work often enough.

I do three or four stage shows per week and this app doesn’t work for about 25% of those. It’s unreliable, buggy, and not recommended for anyone who needs their cues to be a part of their show 100% of the time.

Most of my cues are more ambient, so it doesn’t ruin my show not to have them, but when I pay close to $100 for an app, then go to the trouble of putting together a playlist and setting up my audio gear at a venue, it would sure be nice to have an app that reliably plays my music.

I don’t know if there are alternatives that are any better, but for serious performers who are looking for something reliable, keep looking. Show Cues is not it.
