What’s New

Version 2.1

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

New features in this version:

- Musicplayer design:
We updated the musicplayer design. From now on, there is only one musicplayer active at a time, and it is always present at the bottom of your screen.

- Knocking sounds:
You can now enable to hear a short sound, when a knock is detected. This helps you to identify the number of times you knocked already.

- Auto suspend:
TipSkip now automatically shuts down when you didn't use it for a while, to save battery. This can be adjusted in the settings.

- Insights screen:
For the first time ever, you can have a detailed view of our algorithm and how it reacts to knocking, shaking and movement. This will help you to figure out the right sensitivity for your activities.

For the life of me, the only "tapping" function I can get to work is the pause.
I cannot get it to play the previous track
or advance to the next one. The settings within the app and in the iPhone settings are all correct. Any suggestions anyone?

The Best

Love the app Tremendously!!! I use it all the time. Please update it. Its Awesome.
Here I am again. After update, which is totally awesome, I must give it another 5 Stars. Couple things are lacking. First, the ability to search songs. The second is when you go into your song list and pick a song then escape, and then go back into song list, its starts back at the top instead of whats currently playing. If both of these issues were to be addressed, I would rate 10 ⭐️. Good job!!! Still the BEST.
Here again, just discovered that functions dont work when phone is locked anymore. Please fix asap. Thank You!!!

Coolest app I didn’t know I needed

This little app is awesome! I didn’t know how much I needed it until I used it.

Edit- It is very cool when it works, but after using for a while now it is incredibly unreliable and doesn’t work most of the time.
