Audio Cues supports three kinds of cues:
Audio cues work with all standard audio file formats, including WAV, OGG and more.
Fade cues can change volume, pan from left to right, or serve as Stop cues
Go to cues let you loop through groups of audio cues.

Audio and Fade cues have these features:
• Cue number and title
• Master, left and right volume
• A trigger (the Go button, or with or after the previous cue)
• A delay to run the cue a certain amount of time after the trigger
• A shortcut to run the cue from a keyboard or remote control

Audio cue features include:
• A target pointing to a particular audio file
• A starting point, letting you jump past the start of an audio file
Number of play times, including support for infinite loops

Fade cue features include:
• A target pointing to a specific audio cue, or to all running cues
• A fade duration
Stop the target audio cue(s)

Other features include:
• Integration with Google Drive and local storage to transfer audio files to your Android device
• Backup and restore of show designs as text files
• Support for Bluetooth remote controls and keyboards to trigger cues during performances

Keyboard shortcuts:
• Up and down cursor keys to scroll through the cue list
• The space bar or Enter to trigger the Go button
• Esc or Ctrl+Q to stop all running cues
• Configurable keyboard shortcuts for navigation and running cues

Audio File Storage
The app's audio files are stored in this directory:
/AudioCues/shows/[show title]

You can import audio files from:
• Google Drive
• An SD card or thumb drive
• The device's internal storage

Other ways to copy audio files to the device include:
• With a file manager app
• From a desktop computer connected by USB cable; on macOS 10.7-14, use Android File Transfer (not compatible with macOS 10.15 Catalina)
• Wirelessly with Bluetooth or apps such as HandShaker and AirDroid

We recommend using Audacity, a free desktop application, to build audio files.

The developer
Audio Cues was designed and developed by Seattle-based Radial Theater's Producing Director, David Gassner. In addition to being an active theatre artist, he teaches software development skills for LinkedIn Learning.

How to FRIGHT right
So far its been great. Can I use this on an iphone or ipad? Or is it strictly android?

I love this app! The full screen is great, but as a performer, I need to glance at the time regularly. Would be great to have a clock or timer feature, so that I don't need to exit the app.
