I keep on being surprised by new reviews of AudioExplorer, especially by video reviews, because they take more time and effort to create than a bit of text and a few screenshots. Unlike the previous video, flatulence did not play a major role in either video (despite my lack of knowledge of french, I’m going to go out on a limb and make that claim).
Cydia Tweak- AudioExplorer
AudioExplorer – Rechercher Les Fichiers Audio De Vos Applications
Unfortunately, no review like these of version 1.2, which hints at a few features I plan on adding in the next few days/weeks (most likely in a paid version).
I used a vector graphic program (Pixelmator) to create a new icon and an iconizer (Iconkit) to round the corners and create a bit of gloss:
Still not professional, but definitely better than the previous one, created in a raster graphics editor. And just for kicks I added text to create a startup image:
Oh, and I found another language AudioExplorer was briefly reviewed in (unfortunately Chrome again didn’t offer a translation):
Hopefully when I release my paid version of the app I won’t have any problems with sanctions. 😛
P.S. Here’s another language, translatable by Google Translate:
I’ve finally found a quality review in English, from the USA (in fact from my home state of Connecticut), with a Youtube video to boot:
The video dwells a bit too much on flatulance for my taste, but it also shows some important issues that I need to fix, like a missing icon for my app and an app listed in AudioExplorer with both missing name and icon. I hope to get these things repaired in the next release.
I found another interesting post about AudioExplorer, but unfortunately Chrome didn’t offer to translate for me, as it’s in Burmese and apparently there’s no machine translation for that language offered yet. But still it’s a nice language to look at, with lot’s of curved letters that seem to me like different variations of the infinity sign (∞). It’s a nice post because it has self-made screenshots with apps that I at least I’ve never seen in any of the other screen shots (the poster probably scrolled down past the A’s to avoid posting all the Angry Birds apps ;)).
I recently uploaded my first iPhone app called AudioExplorer (jailbreak only) to Cydia App Store via BigBoss, and was pleasantly surprised upon doing a Google search shortly after by the numerous mentions of the app on various sites around the world. Here’s a sampling, in no particular order (although that’s not quite true, the order here is the order I found them in, more or less):
Noticeably absent are any high quality English language posts (i.e. not just basically copying my description and using my screenshots) and any post whatsoever in German. Or perhaps the notoriously law-abiding Germans are afraid jailbreaking an iPhone is against the law? 😉
Here’s the link to the app hosting: http://apt.thebigboss.org/onepackage.php?bundleid=com.dorcet.audioexplorer&db=
The free app basically searches the contents of your apps (iTunes and Cydia) for playable audio files and stores them for easy playback.
The next version will most likely cost a buck or two but have more useful features, such as the ability to add songs to the iPod Library and set ringtones.
