PocketPipes V10.1 is ready for sale

  • The upload action for sound tracks and pdf scores now sends  the files to the user’s iCloud Drive. Previously the files were sent to a Dropbox account. The action executes much faster! In a future version the downloads will also address iCloud Drive instead of Dropbox. This will achieve the migration of PocketPipes to iCloud.
  • Added force feedback when selecting a tune with a long press (iOS)

iCloud operations

If you own different Apple devices you can now align your data with a backup/restore mechanism through a PocketPipes folder located in your iCloud drive. Commands are done only by the user, it is not an automatic synchronization. Data encompass the tunes and also associated meta data (categories, marks, tempo settings, dates of playing).

Drag and drop on Mac, or with the Files App on iOS.
