Version 3.2 update (Nov. 9, 2017)
- Two new themes! Ecliptic Encounter is an outer space shoot-out which is sure to appeal to older students. Pretty Pegasus takes place above the clouds with subtle sound effects and soothing graphics.
- Manage multiple devices. Teachers who use Flashnote Derby on multiple devices now have the option of cloning a master device so that all of the same presets and users stay in sync.
- Adjusted time to answer. The amount of time a student has to respond to a flashcard has been increased slightly, especially at the easier levels.
- Fixed playback of tutorial videos. Previously, the selected video sometimes failed to play.
Version 3.1.2 update (Dec. 10, 2017)
- Support for new iPad Pro 10.5″. Fixed an issue that caused a crash when launching Flashnote Derby on iPad Pro 10.5″
Version 3.1.1 update (Dec. 2017)
Transposing instruments are now supported in the Listen answer mode. Select the instrument you are playing and your notes will be correctly understood. This will be especially helpful for students playing certain band instruments (such as B-flat trumpet), guitar, and recorder.
- Support for iPhone X. Flashnote Derby now works with your cool new device. Minor modifications were made to the screen layout to accommodate the notch.
- The selected theme is remembered when you relaunch the app. If you are using the Reindeer Race theme, you shouldn’t have to re-select it every time you start Flashnote Derby.
Version 3.1 update (Nov. 2017)
- Sharps and flats can be added to any note. Tap and hold on top of any note in the note chooser screen until a popup appears allowing you to choose which accidentals should apply to that note. For more info, see: Adding sharp and flat versions of a note
Key signatures can also be shown on flashcards, resulting in notes which are sharp or flat. Go to settings and then choose Accidentals and Key Signatures. When working with key signatures, you can specify that flashcards show the key signature, or that they show the note with an accidental before it, or that they alternate between the two methods. For more info, see: Using key signatures
- Teachers can monitor students Flashnote Derby activity at home or on other devices. By inviting a student to share their progress with you, the practice logs for the student’s device and the teacher’s device are kept in sync. Easily check if your students are actively working on the drills that you send them. For more info, see: Linking the teacher’s device with a student’s device and How can I share my progress with my teacher??
- Quickly send preset drills to students by typing their name into the e-mail field. Flashnote Derby will search your device contacts and provide you a list of matches from which you can choose the correct e-mail address to send to.
- Send drills to multiple students at once. Simply provide a list of e-mails separated by spaces.
