Brapp v1.1

A big update I worked on for Brapp went live today on the App Store. It’s the first major update for the app and adds the following:

  • You can now adjust audio levels of yourself and the beat after recording. Sweet.
  • You can now rotate videos after recording so you’re not sideways when you don’t want to be.
  • We’ve added 5 new video filters! Ice, Whitewash, Planet Rock, Purple Haze and Blackout.
  • We’ve added controls for brightness and video filter intensity so there are infinite variations.
  • The new video player is faster, smoother, lighter to control and does not overlay on top of videos.
  • Producer’s names now show on videos made on their beats.
  • The new beat player shows real waveforms because real waveforms rule.
  • You can now loop beats by pressing the ∞ button.
  • Spins now show on beats! Spins are all the plays of a beat INCLUDING plays of videos made on them.
  • You can now filter your Saved Beats by title, producer name, #hashtag and bpm.
  • You can now edit info on your beats & videos. Phew.
  • When you make a video you can see it’s progress as it uploads, you no longer have to wait hopingly!
  • When you tap the beat icon on any video it shows you the beat, now it also shows you all the other - videos made on that beat on the same page.
  • When commenting on a beat/video it won’t stop playing what you are listening to.
  • You can tap profile pictures to make them big.
  • It is now easier to find your Facebook and Twitter friends, and connect with popular users on Brapp.
  • And there’s a heap of other handsome UI, UX and stability updates. P.s. We’re just getting started!

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you can get Brapp for free on the App Store. You can also read about the initial build and release.
