Looks nice! Can it use bluetooth?

Wow! I’d love to check this out but I´m a IOS User. So many someday it will come to iPhones (?)

no bluetooth yet, it’s in the backlog but there a bunch of more things I’d like to add before.

IOS build is Soon TM. but don’t worry I’m thinking about you iphone users.

How long do u think it will take to get this app on the ios appstore?

I dont want to say any number just in case it ends up being later, but the IOS version is high on the list of priorities. so the “Soon” estimate is still the estimate.

That being said, I want to get the in app browser out the door first. once that’s out there’s a high chance the IOS version is going to be more actively looked into.

The app is already 90% IOS ready, there’s just a couple IOS specific behaviors that need to be coded in. after that it’s just a matter of getting it approved by apple and publishing it.

Just bought and downloaded, maybe I’m not fully understanding how this works. But I would like to add pauses on height where I can get hangtimes.

Thanks for downloading!

you can do hangs by seperating peeks with small movements

You can see an example in this screenshot

Notice the peeks and valleys. hope this helps!

Dont know if it’s user error, but tugbud is connecting to the handy, and says it;s send scripts, but it;s not playing them. Suddenly occured today. Tried updating to new handy firmware, but issues still persists

I checked as soon as I read your message, and for a moment it wasn’t working. it seems like it was a momentary outage of the handy API. let me know if your still having issues, but everything seems to be back in order now.

Pretty cool. I just grabbed it off the google play store. A couple questions?

  1. Is there a limit to how long you can record or in how many movements you can record? I tried to make a 5 min script, and it seemed like the zig zag disappeared after a while. The stored version was also blank, but seemed like the script still worked.

  2. How do you deal with sections of a video that have to action, or lets say you only want to map specific sections of a video that is long, lets say 30 min. How would you deal with that?

Thanks again for this wonderful app!

Hello! Hope you’re enjoying and sorry for the delay!

Personally I have not set any limits to how long you can record. However on the more technical sides of things, The Handy can only accept a script file that is 1MB maximum in size (iirc). So it’s entirely possible to write a script that ends up being too big for it. Realistically though, I’d estimate it would take at least an hour of none stop recording to reach that point, if not more! as for the zig zag line disappearing, it wasn’t designed to handle scripts that are longer than a couple minutes so I’m not surprised it bugged out. It’s purely aesthetic though so yes, even if it disapears everything should still work.

Are you using TugBud to script videos? it’s honestly something I didn’t think people would try to do with the app and I’d love to hear more about the way you use it. If you don’t mind, can you send me your script that made the Zig Zag disappear? I’d like to see if I can come up with a fix so it’s still visible with longer scripts.

I’m afraid I don’t think I can help you with that considering you’re using the app in a way I never imagined before. maybe try talking with other scripters to figure out their general process for scripting videos?

Actually, something I’d probably try is create multiple small scripts for each section of your video and then combine them in an separate scripting software like OpenFunScripter (OFS).

I could also implement a simple script editor inside TugBud that lets you edit scripts you’ve made and combine them if that’s something more people would like to see.

Lol, Yeah. I know that’s not the intended purpose, but I figured I’d give it a try by basically trying to follow the action in the video. Actually I was surprised at how close I came but obviously not getting the results of frame-by-frame creation by the pros here. My script was only 12Kb, so if you import any scripts that are larger, you should observe the blank pattern.

A couple recommendations though:

  1. Have the ability to name the scripts and display them on the patterns screen either overlayed on the pattern or above/below it.

  2. Have the ability to combine patters into another pattern.

Great app though. I find myself using it quite a bit for warmups and just experimenting
