      • Improved Windows 10 Support
      New - Improved Mobile Control App for Android

      RE: IOS Help by akins in Mobile Apps

      Kim,
      The wish list was a great idea and was very active and responsive for several years.
      The forums on this site were also quite active with many questions and replies each
      day. Both a dwindled over time for some reason - perhaps the product has matured
      to the point where there aren't many questions and/or wishes. In any event, it is what
      it is, but I, for one, miss the interaction with fellow subscribers and the techs. George
      usually gets back with answers in a reasonable time. I no longer submit anything to the
      wish list as it seems to be a "black hole."

      RE: Song Titles with Parentheses by osborn4 in Version 8.4

      I agree. Very handy. We use () it quite a bit in song titles to denote different versions of the same song or alternate song titles, so they show up in the search,

      RE: Ipad and SSP? by JoanneWillian in The Wave Pool

      Thanks to the portability of the iPad, I can easily use it as my portable computer. As you said, I linked it to the projector, which brought me a lot of convenience. Also, I think it's a good time to buy old iPad models, they work very well and are cheaper.

      RE: Fire OS version? by Dino123 in Mobile Apps

      Posted By yehoshua on 21 Oct 2018 11:33 AM
      One option may be installing "Apps2Fire" on your mobile device. This can be used to install device programs on a Fire TV Streaming Stick across the network. It might work for the tablets; I haven't checked. This is probably the easiest solution, if it works.

      There are also a couple websites out there which will access the Google Play Store and download the APK files from Play directly. I don't have the one I tried bookmarked, but it shouldn't be too hard to find, but be careful, to. I *think* the one I used is https://apps.evozi.com/apk-downloader/.

      I agree with you.

      RE: Now What? by akins in The Wave Pool

      And we have watched your title change and become more impressive over the years -
      does that mirror an increase in pay ??
      We have seen lots of changes in  SSP over the years:
      mostly for the better, a few not so hot.
      This forum has been the first of my browser bookmarks,
      but now is largely, and disappointingly, inactive.
      One thing is certain - things change!
