What's New***IMPORTANT IOS 7 COMPATIBILITY UPDATE!***
After extensive testing with iOS 7 we have identified only a few minor bugs that affect Scene Partner. They include:
Under iOS 7 you will not be able to enter a Theater's Script Library from within the App. You will still see the pop up that asks you to enter your Theater's Library Key password, but iOS 7 doesn't provide a keyboard so that you can enter it.
We will be working diligently to get this fixed. In the meantime, if you do choose to upgrade to iOS 7 (or one of your cast members does) we can work with you to distribute e-Scripts "manually" - that is, from "behind the curtain." Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Act And Scene Listings In Publisher e-Scripts
Under iOS 7 there are some Publisher e-Scripts that no longer display the Scenes and Scene Numbers in the "Tracklist" feature of Scene Partner. This issue only impacts a small number of e-Scripts.
Progress Bars For Voice And Feature Downloads
Under iOS 7 you can no longer see the progress bar to track how far along downloads are.
We will send out emails and post notices to the Updates page of our website when we have completed our work on these items. Thanks for your patience!
*GREAT NEW ADDITIONS FOR VERSION 2.3*
Scene Partner 2.3 Gets You Ready For Samuel French… And Beyond!
New e-Script titles from Samuel French will be available soon and you will need the new version of Scene Partner to use them in the App. Plus, we’ve optimized Scene Partner for some other surprises that we have coming! Watch your emails, push notifications, facebook and twitter for big announcements coming soon!
New Voices Available For Only $1.99 Each!
There are now 16 NEW Acapela voices available for purchase. We have added 3 new U.S. English voices, including “Micah” a male voice with a Southern twang. There are 3 new English voices with an accent, a U.K. female voice, an Australian male voice and female voice from India. In addition, Scene Partner 2.3 introduces the first non-English voices, including new French, German, Italian and Spanish speakers. The additional voices are available via In App Purchase for just $1.99 each.
There are a number of core systems in the app that have been updated to their newer versions so that we can continue to bring you the most stable App possible, as well as provide a solid platform for future versions. Hopefully these will result in a better overall experience with Scene Partner. We also tweaked some graphics and added support for the iPad retina display in the iPad 3.
Listen Screen Bugs Related To iOS 6
The new version of Apple’s operating system continues to make things interesting! We fixed a series of iOS 6 bugs that created problems on the Listen screen. In version 2.2, if you’re listening to your script and the device goes to sleep, or you multi-task to an App that uses audio or you get a phone call, then odd things could happen. Usually this required a restart of the App in order to get the Listen screen to play audio correctly. This has been fixed.
Navigation By Tracklist
Again, a feature that was working fine until iOS6, is now working fine again. In version 2.2 you were unable to use the tracklists to move around the script. This has been fixed. In version 2.3 you can use them again to move from line to line, cue to cue or scene to scene.
Erratic e-Script Errors In The Read > Highlight Screen
A bug in the App was causing errors in certain Sections of the Read>Highlight feature when using a Publisher e-Script. The error would cause the App to close. This has been fixed.
Edit Screen Bug
A bug that appeared after iOS6 caused the Edit screen to go blank if you tried to edit the script in Landscape mode. This occurred when using an iPad2, iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S running iOS 6. This has been fixed.
