BK iPad apps and new iPads #262
I'm thinking of finally pulling the trigger on a new iPad for my BK9.

I have an important question to ask anyone currently running them:

The apps haven't been refreshed in several years, has anyone had any issues getting them to run on an iPad with a relatively modern iOS? A new iPad is likely to be running iOS 11.2, I expect.

Do the BK9 Performance Editor, Lyrics Viewer and BK Partner apps run OK on iOS11? The Apple Store page says iOS 8.1 or higher, but hasn't really been updated since 2013 or so.

Please... ONLY people that know for sure please reply. I can guess as well as the next guy, LOL

Answered on the other thread. But, in short, no. TBH, the only thing I'd REALLY need one for is the Lyrics Viewer to connect to my BK-7m/keytar rig (BK-7m can't display lyrics on the tiny screen), and that's the app they discontinued!

But a small LCD TV (cheaper than an iPad anyway) can do that, so no biggie...
