Finally: Fakebook Playlists!

OK, I know it is late and that this feature should have been finalized a long time ago. However, none of the previous implementation attempts have felt quite right - adding, reordering and switching between playlists never felt natural. I'd like to keep Fakebook simple and intuitive, and the way to do that was stay true to the Android way of handling playlists, e.g. as implemented in the Music Play app and others.

But a lot of users also told me they have missed the browse and filter dialog which I removed (and replaced by the search bar) some months ago. Adding playlist management, all-songs browsing and filtering to the same view seemed like the way to go.

So, finally, here it is: The Fakebook app 1.0.0. Including browsing, song filtering and a great playlist manager. Still keeping the new search bar in the main view, for quick and easy access to all songs. The app is available now at Google Play and soon at Amazon.

 

Please try it out and let me know what you think. Any ideas for further improvements are appreciated, as are bug reports. This is version 1.0.0 after all...


Mail of the Month - July

I really like the fact that you have put all the changes together. I have an  iPhone and Galaxy that I switch between regularly when battery dies and was wondering if I download could I use on both of my phones. Currently I do not have ireal book on my Samsung.
So, basically this program is the same as irealb but for android and it has all of the changes to all of the real book songs or is it just a chord chart with all of the songs loaded?
- Sent from my iPhone

No, there is no relation between iRealb and Fakebook, the apps have different developers and different features. The most important difference is that Fakebook lacks the playback ("auto accompaniment"), so if you really need this please go for iRealb. 

But Fakebook will import songs in iRealbook and iRealb formats, and already have "The Real Book 1200 songs" playlist pre-loaded, so if you need a low cost alternative the Fakebook app may suit your needs.

PageFlip support confirmed

Hot on the heels of AirTurn pedal support, now PageFlip Cicada can be added to the list of useful Fakebook accessories. Check it out at www.pageflip.com.

As noted earlier, foot pedals like these will come really handy (...) as soon as the play list feature is finally released. Now in testing, it will hopefully reach Google Play and Amazon by next week!
