Hybrid app for Android and iOS: Song Controller

Okay. So I attempted to convert my Android app to a hybrid app so I could build both Android and iOS (iPhone/iPad). Written in HTML5 using Phone Gap technology. I tried my best to convert everything and had to change a few things here and there but general functionalities are mostly there.

Screenshots from my iPAD:

Now here's your chance to be my testers. Remember:

1. It's not PERFECT.

2. Development is not 100% completed.

3. It's not as GOOD looking as the original Android Native App...but see if you could learn to love it :)

So don't be mad and just give it a chance.

iOS users might find some issue once a while, like screen locked up. Rotate your device and sometimes it's working again :) or just kill it and restart. I'm still investigating the issue and hopefully could resolve it in the future.

iOS app download link (NOT OFFICIAL Apple approval yet, just a debug build so it's only working on JAILBREAK devices)

https://app.box.com/s/q7tfojr8jc8yvdsrj5qs (non jailbreak devices must wait for the official AppStore version)

INSTALL INSTRUCTION:

Open iTunes and drop the IPA file. Watch this video for instruction how to add IPA files to iTunes and sync with your device: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ACq4CRpEJ8&feature=youtu.be

Android app (DEV build)

REQUIRED: Android 4.2+

Playstore RELEASE:

GETTING START INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Launch the app.

2. Hit the GEAR icon on the bottom to go into SETTING

3. Type in your Karaoke7 IP address.

4. Type in your Name

5. Hit BACK to go back to the main screen.

6. Hit that ON/OFF button on the bottom right to Connect to Karaoke7

7. Then go back to the SETTING screen and then hit that REFRESH SONG LIST button. On iOS, you might not see anything happened but as soon as the button reset from the "pressed" state, you can hit BACK to the main screen. Your songslist should be ready. Normally (as seen on Android) you'd see a pop up saying how many songs are refreshing... but iOS users had to live with it for now, until I find a solution ..ehehe... but in other cases, you might see that pop up on iOS (maybe on larger song list)

8. That's it. Everything else should be easy to operate.

Give it a run and if you run into issue of loading songs. Please send me your songslist via email at vnguyen972@yahoo.com and I'll check it out.

Feedback and comments are always welcome. Be nice.

That's weird. So when you tried ON/OFF but it didn't turn RED... When you get back in the Setting panel.. did the IP address get saved?

What do you think of upgrading it to 4.2 or better?

I'll post an update later with some debug messages on screen so I'd know what is actually going on.

Thanks bro.

See if there's an update for it

Settings => about => update software

If not, then you might have to root it ..then you could put a custom rom on it.

Do it at your OWN risk though :)

Then find a custom ROM somewhere.

If you're scare then maybe buy a new Tablet that runs 4.2 or better like kitkat 4.4 :)

This one seems to have a lot of problems... the most I have heard or encountered was it could connect but unable to Refresh the songlist... when you said you can't connect, meaning, when you hit that "On" button on the bottom right, it didn't turn RED?

The previous version still works for you?
