But it seems that with an ipad for sure you're never just listening to music.
Have you experienced this with these apps or is there a way to make sure that the eq will still function while you're doing something else on your machine?
there is no doubt that EQu is a bit buggy. But i do know he is still working on it actively. i havent used "equalizer" much so i cant say for sure.
EQu crashes when you try to do anything only if you try to simply hit play as the app opens. which essentially is like playing your entire collection on random.
But if I use any of the options of choosing such as playlist, artist, or album to play music, which is the only way i ever do it anyway, than it allows me to do anything else i want.. unless of course another app needs to make sounds, but thats the case i believe for any app.
I dont extensively use a lot of apps that make sounds though so i cant say for sure. i successfully browsed the web, typed an email (even though technically it does click when i type) and used a few other apps like flashlight, contacts, etc.. and it did not crash.
All i can really say for sure is that i have used this app every day since i started this thread, and it has few enough bugs that i have made it my primary music listening app and have never become even mildly frustrated from the occasional glitches. it actually works quite well. in fact i rarely have any issues at all. occasionally it will skip a few times right after it starts playing, but this always dissapates in a few moments.
I dont know if the experience on ipad will differ, though it would be sweeeeeeet to have such a big screen to work with. I hope it works out for you.
