Version 5.0.0 in internal testing
#22
Midi control and expanded pedal actions (including support for four pedals are indeed being added in the next update).

I wanted to give everyone some screenshots of the new library screen. I'll post the pictures with a brief discussion of each, followed at the end by a summary of what's coming.

[Image: library1.png]

This is the new library screen in portrait orientation. The application is now running in full screen mode, meaning the status bar has been shoved to the bottom of the screen, and the navigation buttons are in the bottom left. This should result in MobileSheets using all of the available space while displaying scores. Also, you can see that the buttons that used to be at the bottom of the screen have been replaced by tabs at the top of the screen. Users who are pretty familiar with Android apps will recognize that I'm using the "Action Bar" now, which is the list of icons at the top right, and the tabs below. The action bar allows me to dynamically add new options depending upon what tab is selected as well as switching to a different list of actions if the user has entered selection mode (where you can select multiple songs for sharing, deletion, etc).

The nice thing about the tab implementation I'm using is that, not only can you tap the tabs to switch between them, you can also swipe the screen to switch between them. The swipe is fully animated so you will see the lists slide.

You can also see the filters that are visible below the tabs. There are some new features there such as being able to choose whether you want to include all songs in a collection, or exclude all songs in a collection (and you can select multiple collections at once). You can hide all these filters if desired by tapping the filter button visible at the bottom right in the new floating toolbar. This toolbar presents either actions that are state based (such as the left/right arrows which are just like the left/right arrows in the current version), or actions that can be toggled (such as shuffle mode, performance mode, and the filters visibility).

The last things I'm going to mention are the alphabet list on the right which now only shows letters that are actually match entries in the list, and the different icons at the top right. There is now one "group editor" button (to the left of the pencil) which is what is now used to modify any of the various group types (where a group is something that has a list of songs, such as a setlist/collection/genre/album, etc). The pencil is the edit button, which, when tapped once, prompts you to tap a song to edit (a little faster than long pressing). You can also long press a song in the list to select it, then tap the pencil to edit it.

I just wanted to show some of the additional tabs. There are currently 13 tabs supported, and I have them all enabled for demonstration purposes. In the settings, users can turn off the tabs they don't want or need, which cleans up the user interface and can speed up initialization a tiny bit. The "Custom Group" tab is one that you can name whatever you want, making it a convenient way to categorize songs based upon your own parameters.





[Image: quick_action.png]

Here you can see the new "quick action" menu which is used for popup menus. This one is for the overflow menu which is where actions are placed that are used less frequently.




[Image: alphabet.png]

Just another demonstration of the alphabet list on the right side and how it only shows relevant letters. Lists that aren't sorted (such as the Recent list) won't show this alphabet list at all, freeing up more screen space.




[Image: landscape.png]

In landscape mode, the tabs and icons are collapsed onto one line to make the best use of available screen space.




I was really hoping to have the beta ready by this point, but unfortunately, there have been a lot of bugs. Some of them have taken a fair amount of time to fix, and I have a lot more work left to do to make sure I've tested every possible option. Things are really coming together nicely, and I appreciate everyone's support and patience. I hope to have more screenshots soon of the song editor, group editor, and the various song display modes (two page, half page portrait, etc). On a side note, I'm getting married this week (yay!), so that is going to interfere with my progress quite a bit. When I get back on Saturday, I have to turn around and fly for work on Monday. I will continue to do my best to get things done as fast as I can.

I hope people like the changes that have been made so far. Please share comments if you have any.

Mike
