Feb/Mar 2020 New Features and Updates!

Hi all! I had a busy February so I hadn't gotten around to posting an update. I've made a few enhancements over the last two months, here are the details!

Tag Filtering and Column Sorting

Hopefully you've been using the new tag functionality rolled out in January, which lets you freely tag songs with metadata that makes sense to you. You can now click on tags to filter by them on the song list, making browsing for songs a little easier.

Name and Artist can now be sorted on in the Songs list, both ascending and descending. Click on the column heading to sort and adjust the type of sorting.

New Dashboard Graph

On the homepage, you can now see a straightforward breakdown of songs by category (Exercises, Learning, Repertoire, and Open Practice).

Open Jam

Want to jump into practicing right away without creating a routine? Simply hit the Open Jam button on the Practice Routine list to start an informal practice session right away!

Book Selector

When creating or editing a song, you can now select a book you've already entered.

Upcoming Features

Here are some of the feature I'm considering working on. Let me know if they are interesting to you, and I'll adjust my priority accordingly!

  • Advanced Smart Songs - being able to build your own formula for smart song selection using tags, books, and more.
  • More analytics - See in more visuals for the practice history for a song, or how long it took to get to your repertoire.
  • Badges! Earn badges for practice streaks and other achievements.
  • Data exports - export your practice logs to run your own analysis on.
  • Calendar view - see how your practice history looks on a calendar.
  • Sound customization - be able to customize the 'move on' and metronome tones.
  • Practice Log Editing - Be able to add to and edit your own practice logs.

How You Can Help

You can help support tuneUPGRADE in many ways!
  • Feedback and feature requests are always welcome. Every update in January was focused on specific feedback from users. If you're looking for a specific feature or find a bug, shoot me an email at [email protected]!
  • Spread the word! If you know of other musicians, have a music teacher, or want to share some tuneUPGRADE love on social media, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm looking to reach as many musicians as possible to grow tuneUPGRADE. 
  • Donate to help cover hosting and development costs! I understand that music can be an expensive hobby and not everyone can afford to pay for lessons or other services. Because of this, I'd like to keep tuneUPGRADE free as long as I can afford to do so. If you can spare a few bucks to help me cover hosting and development costs, or just want to say thank you, head to the donate page. Thank you to those who have already donated, really appreciate it!
