App takes over iPhone

One problem on an otherwise great product for me. The latest version and previous version (I just updated Jan 14, 2021) will get stuck in a loop because Bluetooth is not on. I have both tentacle types, Bluetooth and the earlier cabled version. There are plenty of reasons I may not want Bluetooth on at any given time, but I would still like to connect to my wired tentacles. Can’t do it because the app keeps demanding you go to settings on your phone. I can’t even close the app, it totally takes over my phone until I hit the Settings button. I don’t want an app to EVER take over control of my phone.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Based on this review we changed the behavior in newer app versions and there is now an option to cancel Bluetooth setup.
If you have further questions, please write to support@tentaclesync.com

Great when it doesn’t crash.

With the recent update, the app crashes every time I try to use it within about 3 seconds of opening it.
This added unnecessary stress to a recent production I was on.
Hopefully an update will come soon and resolve this.
The previous version of the app was flawless.

Good app but a big flaw...

The app works well. It conveniently allows remote recording and status monitoring of the Track E recorders, and syncs the timecode of all my Track E recorders with the Sync E timecode generator. A glaring drawback - a BIG flaw - is during recording, the app SHOWS audio levels, but it DOES NOT allow the audio being recorded to be monitored out of the iPhone. This probably could be done easily via Bluetooth. So there is no way to use the app to tell if your audio recording is good or not - if there is too much wind or other unwanted noise - since the 3.5mm jack doesn't work on the U.S. model of the recorder.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your feedback. Audio monitoring has been added in version 3.2.
