What's New

Version 1.7

Added new feature: - Count Down Alert alerts user when a designated period of time is about to elapse.

Users can match the count down duration with the long exposure time set on their camera to get audible alert when the exposure time is about to elapse while doing light painting.

When switched ON, new Count Down Alert starts to count down silently once user tapped the OK button to leave the settings view of Light Painting(*). Light Painting will produce audible alert when the count down approaches the LAST 5 seconds of the designated count down duration.

Available count down durations (seconds): 15, 30, 60

Changing the Count Down Alert settings will cancel the currently active count down.

(*) If there is already an active Count Down Alert, switching to and from the settings view will NOT start a new alert. The active alert simply continues unless user changed the Count Down Alert settings.
(**) 1st Generation iPod touch requires headphone or external speakers to utilize Count Down Alert.
(***) Count Down Alert defaults to OFF whenever Light Painting is launched.
