  • Perfect for Training and Match Simulation Oct 13, 2017

    By Jeff-JD
    I have been using this app for a little less than a year now. I continue to find new uses for it and I have shared it with my dance group. The versatility of the program makes it extremely customizable for any style of dance, International Ballroom, International Latin, American Smooth, and American Rhythm are already predefined and I have added a multitude of dances that fall in the minors group. As one previous reviewer has stated, it is possible to setup a practice party list of random selections using playlists, random songs using genres, specific songs or a combination of all three. I was able to create a set of match heats that distinguished between bronze and silver tempo by adjusting the targeted BPM of the heat. It was nothing less than outstanding! I would like to address one other reviewers comments regarding the developer of the software. He has been very responsive and helpful on more than one occasion as I was learning the functions of the program. He has always been receptive to requests and continues to improve the product based upon feedback from various users. Since I have had direct interaction with this person, I can say first hand that he is professional and courteous.

    This is an excellent app with incredible configurability. It works well for those training for competitions, but it does have a few rough edges. My biggest complaint is that its media codec support is limited - it cannot recognize OPUS formatted files, so I have to spend time converting stuff to MP3 which eats more space on my phone. The interface also takes a lot of tapping to get through to certain options (like song selection), and it's not clear what elements can be tapped to access deeper settings. That said, when it works, it works well, and there's nothing that comes close on Android. Well worth the money.

  • Very customizable! Great for rounds. Oct 28, 2016

    I coach a team. Been using this app for about a year now. I use this to play simulation rounds. Just push play and it takes care of itself. Once I upgraded to the paid version, I even made custom emcee announcements that play between songs. I also use this app to play the weekly dance party. I even used it to play music for a parade where we needed one random song and one feature song alternating for an hour. You will need to organize your music into playlists by genre.

    A *must have* tool for ballroom dancers. Easy to setup, easy to use. Handles all the rounds work for me. Takes all the work out of 10min rounds (other than the dancing of course).

  • Doesn’t seem to work with iTunes.... Jan 19, 2019

    Really great idea but if I can’t use my library I’ve wasted my money. Also could not find a “contact developer” to ask questions.

  • 5 Star App - but developer is a jerk Mar 11, 2014

    By Daniella_86
    Let me be clear: this app does what it says it will do very well. As a piece of technology, I would highly recommend it. Furthermore, **the developer generally does a good job at responding to problems. The reason it gets 1 star is because the developer pressures customers to delete any review that rates this app low. This rating is to make things even. Look for yourself at this interaction on Facebook between the developer and a customer who had bought the product, after the customer wrote a review stating the product was glitching: Olaf: "How can I help you identify the problem?" BCT: "A bit too late for that. I will look into this problem if someone else encounters it, and actually asks for help BEFORE deciding on leaving a negative review." His justification? "right now, your review is hurting my business” After that, he pressured the customer to remove his negative review, and only then proceeded to help him with his problem. When there was outrage on Facebook, the developer replied that the comments against his customer service "have not made me feel any different about it.” That is why he is getting 1 star.

  • Confusing interface Aug 17, 2013

    By Adwiz
    This is a good concept, but the execution is pretty poor. You can't select songs you want for a round, as the app selects them randomly. The interface is ridiculously awkward. And you can't create multiple lists (i.e. one Latin, one Standard). So I find it easier to just creat competition playlists as before.

    This app would get 6 stars if it could work with Spotify playlists
