Thanks Jon!


New App store reviews from US and Germany:

I purchased the original version for iPad when it first came out and thought that it was great then. The upgrades continue to enhance this excellent app for stage performers.

I have used several different devices for controlling my tracks for my show, some costing more than $1,000 with all accessories. Several times they failed me on stage, which is not okay when you're a professional.

Show Cues works well with the remote, but is also a very useful tool even if you have a sound tech. The custom cues for each track are the perfect way to insure that your sound tech knows when to start, stop or fade your music. The customizable fades rates and volume levels for each track make this practically idiot-proof!

Thanks for a practical and easy to use app that keeps getting better. The customer service is second to none. Highly recommended!

*******************

Wow, finally , solid software I can count on for headliner entertainment, no room for errors in professional stage hypnosis. Well done, thanks for implementing my upgrade suggestions!

*******************

The rework for this new version 2.0 is awsome and makes this the best system I've used to date. It is so well worth every penny and puts a lot of the other systems out there that cost so much more to shame. I definitely recommend for the professional.

*******************

As an artist, I use this tool in almost every show. Incredibly practical and very easy to use. Bugs with new version no longer exists. A very good alternative to physical solutions for sound control. A tap on the keyboard and the sound starts and stops at the right volume. Not cheap, but the price is more than worth it. Not a toy and therefore no toy award. top!

I have been waiting to buy this until ijet has a verssion for the iphone 5. I know if I buy one and the converter plug they will then have a version for the iphone 5. I really would like one though.

I spoke to the people at Buy iJet last month and asked when the new docks with the Lightning Connector would be coming out and was told the don't expect to have them anytime soon. The representative I talked to said they would eventually have them but he had no timetable for it.

Ron, Michael is correct. From what I have been told Apple has not released permission for other vendors yet. I would suggest getting the adapter, I think it's about $29.
John, iPad version 2.1 now in beta, coming soon.

My remote finally arrived yesterday. I eagerly plugged in all the components. I'm happy to report that everything works perfectly.

I've been a long time user of the MiniTech and more recently the Mp3 Tech. While I'm still very satisfied with the Mp3 and will continue to use it in bigger shows, I was looking for something more compact and wireless for smaller venues such as birthday parties. I love using music in my shows and digging around and pulling out furniture to find an outlet really annoyed me. With this new set and the inclusion of a battery powered speaker built into my case, it's going to be very easy to open the case and start the show.

The remote has the same feel as the Mp3 Tech's with the noticeable difference that the buttons have a definite click feel when pushed on the Show Cues remote. When I use the Mp3 Tech remote I almost have to push on the button for a second or so to activate the cue. This remote is almost instantaneous. Now if I could trigger it with a PK ring like the Mp3 Tech remote that would be great. I ran around the house and had absolutely problems with the transmitting distance.....longest from the receiver about fifty feet. It might be nice to have the belt holder, although I like it kept in my front pocket and push the buttons through the material. This site might be a cheaper place to obtain a remote now that the fade issue has been resolved, and it includes the holder. http://www.buyijet.com/remotes/inav-boss......t-1.html .The remote did come with a very nice cable and adapter to connect to the sound system. Can't wait to get it into a show.......

Another new iTunes review for Show Cues:

"With every update, this system gets better and better. I can't say enough positive things about how well this works now and the incredible customer service that comes along with the purchase. It is a dream to be able to run the audio during my show with something I already travel with. Thank you for making a great, useful product that is now exceeding my expectations! " — Jeff Kaylor

Show Cues — A few reviews:

"How good is Show Cues? It is Great. Having the Volume Control, Next Track and Pause/Play right ON the cue sheet is so intuitive and easy to use that even someone who has never seen your show can run it.Simple and powerful! Add a remote control if you want to run it yourself with the track Name showing big and bright on your iPad screen. Show Cues is a real winner! Highly recommended."
—Peter Samelson
"Carl has designed the BEST, SIMPLEST sound cue device ever! We use it to run ALL our sound needs, at the theatre and beyond. I LOVE the fact that you don't need to be near a sound board, tech booth, or tech person!
— Joe Givan
"Great app! Love it! wow this should be a app for every professional entertainer. If I ever get to meet you in person a most definite hug is in order a kiss on the cheek if you're French."
— Oscar Munoz
"With every update, this system gets better and better. I can't say enough positive things about how well this works now and the incredible customer service that comes along with the purchase. It is a dream to be able to run the audio during my show with something I already travel with. Thank you for making a great, useful product that is now exceeding my expectations! " — Jeff Kaylor
"Show Cues is one of the greatest apps for the stand-up entertainer in existence. It does everything you need. Say goodbye to the $1000-plus sound cueing hardware. Fabulous support and customer service, which triples the value in my book. I can't wait for the next upgrade, which will allow me to pre-set separate volume controls for each track. The best keeps getting better."
— Dan Garrett
"It's a well designed piece of kit for the working pro. For me and hundreds of others out in the 'trenches' gigging for a living, it's fantastic! I handed my iPad to the sound engineer to run my cues - which he did, superbly. He LOVED this app - quote 'I'm having that!' A well thought out and easy to use app. "
— Gary Dunn
"Never deal with a ship's sound tech again! Double the price Carl! Seriously, having spent $1800 on another sound device, it astounds me what a great job you have done thinking out this App. Congratulations."
— Nick Lewin
"Just started using the great app. For my one man show it's perfect!"
— Wayne Rogers
"I'll be using it at the Magic Castle the rest of the week. It's fantastic!"
— Dave Cox
"Fantastic Carl! Finally, won't have to carry the extra gear. Thanks for the reasonable price too!"
— Chris Blackmore
"I purchased Show Cues for my iPhone 4 and it is fantastic. This is exactly what I've been hoping and looking for. I'm am so thankful"
— Steve Gillham
"You have a real winner for those who choose to see the benefits, the cost is way to minimal!"
— Brent Gregory
"I gotta say this is without question the best software option for playing music hands down. It's beyond great. I have had every system you can think of, including the mp3 tech and this blows them all away, ESP with these new updates. I'm not sure what else you plan on doing to improve this, but it's phenomenal. Well done!"
— Michael Bourada
"A killer App for performers of all kinds. Show Cues is the bomb! Virtually no set up!"
— Greg Phillips
"If this App doesn't take over the entertainment world, I'd s#*t myself!"
—Matt Disero
"Great App. I am a full time professional entertainer and it rocks! Almost anyone can act as your sound person with this great App! So simple and effective!"
— Rodney Housley
"Overall this is a Great, Easy to use App. I just put it to my first live use on Sunday, after just getting it on Saturday night! Thanks for all your efforts into developing this for the magic community!
—Rod Chow
"I am happy with the App, and it makes the Virtual Soundman and Show tech and all other hardware dependent music controllers obsolete. Great job, keep it up."
—Kelly Duro
"You two are awesome! I'm loving the changes you made. You are approaching art with Show Cues 2.0.
Thank you Carl and Shawn."
—Keith Raygor
"I've just downloaded show cues from the AppStore and its undoubtedly perfect for my shows - exactly what I was looking for. " — Adrian Fox
"It works perfect and I love that app!" — Jean Luc Marinal
"My name is Christian Engblom, and I hail from Finland.
I was recently In New York, and was treated to Steve Cohen's wonderful show, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.
We had a great conversation afterwards, where he showed and recommended your Show Cues app. "

"In the past I have used so many different music systems to provide the backing for my shows. This might sound big time but it isn't meant to be but SO many cues have been missed in the past by technicians in all kinds of venues. Recently I purchased "SHOW CUES"... note I am NOT getting paid to say this! I found it unbelievably simple to create a list of the music and sounds that I needed and create the cues for the techie guys. Last week I was on a ship. The sound engineer had never seen "SHOW CUES" before but the show was flawless. Every cue was spot on. I know this system was created for use by magicians but other performers on the ship, singers and multi instrumentalists, were all asking where to get it.
I highly and freely recommend "SHOW CUES" and I have now started to play with the iJet controller... so far.... impressed!"

Will the remote that I just bought be able to be "retro fitted" with the magnetic switch?

@John, sorry the current ShowCues remote cannot be retro-fitted with the magnetic switch, however it will still be a cost-effective unit. We're not yet sure of pricing, but rest assured it will be worth it.

Ok since I JUST bought the remote two weeks ago......that blows! Having to buy ANOTHER one is not what I would call cost effective! Perhaps in the futur you could let potential buyers kno, at the time of ordering, that an update model will SOON be available so that they might choose to wait for the newer model
