    I've learnt a few things in the last couple of weeks since releasing iAno :-

    1) Don't use images of iPhones in your logo or Apple sends you a "Cease & Desist" letter.

    2) Don't call your application "iAno" or you get a large number of emails each day from Spanish people using the word "anus".

    3) Don't trust reports that GooglePages has no bandwidth restriction.


    Because of all this, the new version of iAno has been replaced by a brand new application (looking spookily similar) called "Pianist". This supercedes your current install of iAno (or not, if you are Spanish prude), which you'll need to manually uninstall.

    I have also moved the iAno website to a new domain and host, here- http://moocowmusic.com/
    Drop by and say hi on the forum.


    Changes in the new version, other than the rebranding, are:-

    - Volume is now related to the volume of the iPhone. So you can turn it up to a decent level.

    - The samples are found using a path with a "~" for better 1.1.3 (and up) compatability. This should solve most of the "no sound" errors.

    - The App performs an initial check that the the required system and sample files are present in the Media partition, and shows an error message if they are not. This means you can distinguish between installation errors, and merely not having the correct audio settings on your device.

    - Samples have been faded in and out to reduce clicking.

    - Help pages and logo have been redesigned to look more professional.


    The new version should be available for download in the next few days.


    A future update (no release date yet) will contain all the stuff I was halfway through implementing before the C&D turned up:-
    - 88 Key keyboard with sounds sampled from a real piano.
    - Scroll through the keyboard key by key (or jump and octave) so you are not limited to starting at C or F.

    Still no luck with the acquiring of decent samples?

    (Tbh, I'm very happy with the slightly hissy beta version that you sent me, and it's quite cool that the recordings are of my own piano lol)

    Yeah tell me about it... I did an OS X theme for my website back during the public beta days of Mac OS X and three days after it went live I got a nasty letter in the mail from Apple telling me I had a week to change my website. They're thuggish when it comes to their image

    I've gotten about 4 C&D letters from them in the past decade.

    your app has been an international success. Congratulations!
    It's a bit wierd that Apple sent a C&D notice to a jailbreaker. Did they say anything about how jailbreaking voids your warranty?
