    Update: iPadOS 13 & 1Chart

    With Apple scheduled to release iPadOS 13 today (a few days ahead of their originally announced release date), I wanted to provide an update on 1Chart's compatibility with this latest OS. While they're not "showstoppers," there are a couple of known issues with running 1Chart v2.1.3 (the...

    iPadOS 13 beta (and plans for compatibility)

    If you're tempted by Apple's iPadOS 13 public beta, stop right there! Unless you've got a spare "test" iPad and are not worried about the usual bugs and inconsistencies that come along with beta OS's, I wouldn't recommend installing this software. It's cool, but it does crash! And there are some...

    If you're looking for ways to streamline communication with your bandmates, onstage and off, you might want to take a look at BandHelper. (I'm not affiliated with BandHelper, but the developer recently posted about 1Chart on his site, so I thought I could return the favor here.) BandHelper is...

    Those of you who've been around here for a while may have noticed there's a slightly different look to the community.

    Symbols to indicate repeat...

    1Chart and iOS 11

    Testing so far has shown no issues using 1Chart on the latest iOS 11 beta (beta 7), but even with that, I wouldn't recommend moving to iOS 11 just yet. The standard rule of thumb applies: Don't use beta software when you're in mission-critical mode, whether that means you're relying on your...
