Boom 2.0 Beta Program – The 2nd Beta Is Out!

November 18th, 2014

Beta-2_Boom2.0_BlogImage

 

We hope all you people out there have been having a pleasant experience with the first beta of Boom 2.0 so far. The community has been very helpful in sending us feedback with every minor detail being reported and being worked upon. After collecting data related to crashes and bugs, we’ve made changes and introduced a new feature in this new beta update that comes out today. Although we’ve tried to address all reported issues, we’re still working on some of them and they will be addressed real soon. Also, we received a really touching testimonial from a user and we just had to share it with all of you.

With the release of the 2nd beta, we’ve introduced finer audio controls for a more intricate equalizer experience.  You can find frequency constraint controls in the equalizer section. When using either the regular 10-band equalizer or the advanced one, you will be able to have better control over the bands. Clicking on the bass, mid and treble icons in the 10-band equalizer will allow you to simultaneously move the nodes present under that category simultaneously.

Under ‘Advanced’, you’ll be able control and move all the frequencies at once that are categorized under bass, mid or treble. This gives a more precise and pro-like setting for you to make the most of. You also have a slider to the right of the equalizer that can be used to shift entire presets up and down in one go.

When this feature is ON, you can select a node. Next, all nodes in the same category will go up or down in proportion to the moves made.

Apart from this, there are several improvements that have been carried out in other areas. We’ve further polished the app in terms of audio and this is where we’d like to share what Mr. Ronald Norton, a veteran from the US Air Force, had to say about Boom 2.0 helping him out.

 

Hello, I have a few medical issues that Boom 2.0 helps me greatly. I am a Viet Nam era veteran of the US Air Force and I have a problem with my hearing. It is not just about getting more volume but the actual pitch of the volume that really helps me. I used your app with Bass Boost and it actually helps without causing other issues. I can’t speak for everybody, but I can speak of my own experience. I have PTSD and TBI from a brain infection and I am “100% Permanently and Totally Service-Connected Disabled.” Some applications just add volume and for me, that would be a total disaster. One of the residual impacts of the brain infection is that I am now an epileptic with grand mal seizures and the strange thing is what triggers them. For me, it can be as simple as an odor or scent, flickering light or certain types of sound. The important thing is that type of sound or the pitch of the sound, these are all important in helping the medication to prevent the grand mal seizures. Thank you for this opportunity to share my perspective on the use of your application. 

Respectfully,

Ronald Norton

 

We’re really happy that Boom has helped Mr. Norton in his everyday life and it only motivates us further in developing products that make a difference. Boom isn’t just about loud audio anymore. Boom 2.0 takes Mac acoustics into the future with added emphasis on the quality of audio that it churns out.

So download the beta 2 of Boom 2.0 and let us know what you think. Send us your feedback, bug reports and anything else you come across in this update. Oh, and if you still haven’t signed up for the Boom 2.0 Beta Program, register now! We’re also available on Facebook, Twitter, G+ and Linkedin if you need to reach us. Happy Boomin’!

Talk more with unique emoticons

Sometimes, words just aren’t enough to express yourself the way you want to. It might be one of those days when you just don’t have much to talk about but want to stay connected. Sure, you can type in your message but who wants to read an essay on whether or not you’re happy?

Say more than what you want to with talking emoticons that liven up the entire conversation!

Sharing and watching funny stories can make anybody’s day. It’s in our roots to watch viral videos on a daily basis and Stryke makes it easier to share and view your videos with just a tap. You can share them privately with friends who already use Stryke, or you can use various other apps that support sharing videos from your gallery.

 

Save and Share

Being able to think of various different conversations to use your videos in is a neat convenience in Stryke that lets you keep up with your hilarious pals always stealing your punch line! Save them in your camera roll and send them to your friends as many times as you like!

 

Anonymity in a world filled with peeping toms

Even parents have begun taking advantage of the Internet to keep track of their kids. One of Stryke’s awesome features lets you add that extra zing of mischief by allowing an ‘anonymous’ avatar that keeps your identity hidden in a group conversation. Reveal your best friend’s secrets or proclaim love to your crush and watch the fun unfold!
