Use this app to monitor the timecode of your Bluetooth Tentacle Sync E.

For each device, the following information is available:

・frame rate
・battery status
・signal strength

In contrast to the regular "Tentacle Setup" app, this app does not allow for changing the configuration of your Tentacle Sync E on purpose. That is, it provides a "read-only" view of your setup, reducing the potential of accidental misconfiguration.

Tentacle Sync E is available at or one of our resellers.

Doesn’t fill display

Seems to work well in my first 10 minutes of testing, but somehow the iPhone version produces a larger read out on my iPhone plus, than the iPad versions, on my iPad mini (even tried to install the iPhone version on my iPad, but was forced into using the iPad version). Why not fill the whole screen? Or better yet, make it adjustable in size, and with memory of the last used size. I LOVE tentacle. I have 2 of the old, and 2 new sync boxes. Couldn’t be happier. This app would be a perfect 5 stars if the numbers would just fill the entire width of the screen!

Slightly off

The Tentacle sync Bluetooth modules pass timecode to my audio recorder and two cameras perfectly, but if I film the TimeBar app the phone's display is always fast by 12-13 frames compared to the TC on the actual media files.

Incompatible with latest firmware

Does not recognize Tentacles over Bluetooth with latest firmware (v2). Also needs the ability to invert screen colors—black on white is difficult to see on camera.

Developer Response ,

Version 1.1 solves the bug + new feature: Toggle color option switches display to white on black.
