Re: Whisky app, Final version

I usually do a search for "free wavs" or "free mp3s" - usually mp3s at 192 mbs, because they are 10 x smaller than the equivalent wav and still sound great. Are you looking for an instrumental with a certain groove or a vocal with whisk(e)y in the title?

Re: Update to Smart Basic?

Add me to the list of people who would rather have bug fixes and continued support than Dropbox support. And I would pay a few bucks a month too if it was needed to keep the app going.

Re: Update to Smart Basic?

Henk, I wonder if there is a Russian equivalent to the old saying "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush". You and I agree that Smart Basic is one of the best languages we have ever worked with. I now have 350 + programs running from my latest version of Launch. Yet here we are waiting for SB ...
