The Windows and Windows Phone stores have seen an unfortunate decline in usage due to the poor reception of Windows 8 and the lack of enough adoption for touchscreens as a main method of interaction.
However, INERDTIA will be publishing a revision to Maestro 1.x which includes:
Universal Windows App (UWP)
INERDTIA has teamed up with a veteran Piano teacher who is helping guide the new shape of the app.
And last but not least, App development has been kicked off this month of July 2017 and updates will be shared as available, if you have interest in becoming a beta tester please leave a comment below and we will reach out to you.
A new set of features are coming soon, based on feedback and reviews written in the app stores, plus a couple of bug fixes and required changes to be Windows 8.1 – compliant, and Windows 10 and Windows Phone 10 compatible.
Here’s a summary of what we are working on:
Ability to hide known Flash Cards
Unification of Windows Store App and Windows Phone App
People keep asking about these other platforms, and development for iOS and Android is expected to resume planning after the Windows and Windows Phone updates go live, so expect some news in Q2 2015, and potential releases in Q3 and Q4 this year, plus some other big news for the Maestro platform.
The latest update to Maestro Flash Cards (v1.2) is underway with the following features:
A fix to address the “banding” effect that occurs when resizing the window to custom sizes.
Addition of larger font sizes for note names for Bass and Treble clef sets.
The Windows 8 Phone edition is almost ready too! Here’s a sneak preview:
This upcoming update has bug fixes, and introduces a full translation to Spanish.
To use the application in Spanish:
1) If your Windows 8 language is already Spanish you don’t have to do anything.
2) If your Windows 8 language is anything other than Spanish, you will have to add Spanish to your language list, set it to your default language, logout and log back in. This will change your whole Windows 8 UI to Spanish.
Esta nueva versión arregla un par de problemitas e introduce la traducción a Español.
Para utilizar la aplicación en Español:
1) Si estás utilizando Windows 8 en Español, no tienes que hacer nada.
2) Si estás utilizando cualquier otro lenguage, tendrás que agregar Español a tu lista de lenguages en Windows 8, escoger Español como el idioma predeterminado, cerrar tu sesión actual y entrar de nuevo a Windows 8.
The Spanish translation of Maestro Flash Cards is being tested at the moment, and it will be published to the Windows Store very soon.
La traducción al Español de Maestro Flash Cards está en pruebas en este momento y será publicada en breve a la Tienda Windows.
