    Does anyone who downloaded this have any thoughts or ideas for features they'd like to see in the next version?

    A version for PC would be nice. If people were able to go to a webpage and just have it open up in their internet browser, that would give your program more exposure too.

    Put a little sight-singing tutor in, i.e. have it display a graded series of 9-note melodies. You sing them, check yourself along the way by tapping notes, and then hit a button to have the whole thing played for you. The grading could range from stepwise melodies to randomly-generated ones. Of course the thing would be limited to punctums, but that's not a deal-killer. The pedagogical goal here would merely be to master the movable clef and hit the right pitches.

    em,

    If any developers from PC land want to step forward I will happily share with them all the info I know on how to set this up.


    Pes,

    You read my mind, currently working on something very much like what you're talking about. I think it will be fun! Kinda like Guitar Hero... but Chant Hero.

    I was about to start tinkering on a PC app that does exactly this, and ran into this...

    bgeorge77-
    Would you mind me working on a PC version of this?

    This looks awesome. Now, of course, the necessary "When will this be out for Android?" post :)
  • Don't let the mainstream media know, or the headlines will be, "Catholics don't have to sing; iPhone will do it all." Just like they screwed up on that confession app.
    Looks WONDERFUL though!
  • Currently developing an Android version.

    Android makes things 100x harder as regards to the display.

    Very frustrating, but plugging along.

    bgeorg77:

    Thank you! I was just visiting this thread to ask that you develop an Android version. I would be fine paying a fee for it, if it's any consolation, even a little higher than the iPhone fee!
  • I already have this app...love it and use it frequently!!
  • Finally done with the Android version of this app, check it out here:

    iChant in the Android Market
  • iChant is now available for the Android in the Amazon market:

    Also still available for iPhone.

    iChant for the iPhone on the iTunes App Market.

  • I was looking at this a couple days ago. Why does the "iChant Gregorian Support" link in the App Store take me to a "Reported Attack Page!"?
    Thanked by 1bgeorge77
  • Reported attack page? How bizarre... I don't know. That's an old webpage, maybe it was hacked. I will look into it. Anyway, I'm the support.
  • I mentioned this app to my schola after practice Friday night. It's been on my iTunes "Wish List" along with Liber Pro since Wednesday. Now all I need is for my iPod Touch, which I ordered Friday morning, to come. I hope it comes in the next 12 days as I'm leaving for a 3 week holiday and would like to practice some chant while I'm away. Could you make a Blackberry version in case my iPod doesn't arrive before I leave?

    This app is so much fun!
  • Although I recently got the iPhone 4S, I would love to have the app for my Blackberry as well, so that I can have a backup. I just need a user manual.
  • Hi folks: I don't think a Blackberry edition will be coming out any time soon. I don't own a Blackberry and I have so little time to program.

    As far as a user manual goes, there's only the one screen: tap on buttons to make tones, transpose up and down to fit your vocal range, select the clef and clef-line, and that's pretty much it.

    I hope my little program has been helpful to people.
  • I was joking when asked if you could make a Blackberry version in 12 days. I'm also a software developer, and I know how much time it take to learn a new platform, let alone develop an app. I was just voicing my disappointment that I most likely will not be able to use your app until I get back a month from now. However, when I do get back, your app will be one of the first apps I put on my new iPod.
  • I have this app on my iPhone. Does anyone have any ideas why I can't get any sound? My volume is turned all the way up, but I get nothing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Is the mute switch on the side of the phone flipped on?
    Thanked by 1RomanticStrings
  • I downloaded it, out of curiosity. Also total silence for me. All other noise-making apps on my phone work fine.

    By the way, I clicked the link for support and got 'Page not available'. You might want to fix that.

    Is there any new development of the IOS version of this app. I believe that it needs to be upgraded to 64-bit; otherwise. IOS 11 won't support it (or so they say).

    Just tested it out on my iPhone 7. Works just as well as it did the day I got it for my iPhone 4s. Remember, on iPhone, the ringer volume and the app volume are separate creatures. When you are in the app, try raising the volume at that time.

    P. S. Thanks so much for creating this app bgeorge. I use it frequently. Love it's simplicity and versatility.

    Was just messing around with it just now and discovered that if you transpose too high up or down, you get silence.
  • Really love this app and how much it helps, but it is no longer available to download and if you already have it, it is not compatible with ios11. Please get it back up and going!!
    Thanked by 2tomjaw bhcordova
  • I agree. Please update the app for iOS11. Thanks.
    Thanked by 1tomjaw
  • Yes! Please update the iChant app for iOS 11 if possible. It has helped immensely with our amateur schola in a small town.

    Posting in this forum is probably not an effective and reliable way of contacting the app developers. bgeorge77 hasn't posted on this thread since 2009.
