GiorgioV,

Welcome to the forum and to Band-in-a-Box!

Unfortunately, PG Music normally doesn't respond to questions about what's under development or when an app might be updated.

Why not post in the +++ Other Programs Wishlist ++ and give a list of changes you would like to see made to Band-in-a-Box for Android? That would give other users the opportunity to discuss the application, your suggested changes and add our support to your request.

I'm sure that you are aware of this but traditionally the Android platform has not supported music related applications very well. However Android 5.0 and above has strong support for music apps so now is a good time to consider updating Band-in-a-Box for Android.

Hello Jim,

It's just that the app hasn't been updated in quite a while, which, given the current Android release, seemed to be equivalent to having been dropped. So I was asking for a confirmation, since I found the app concept interesting.

I wonder if the software, as it is, is even compatible with today's Android.

I too would like to know what happened to the Android app. I was using it with the BIAB server and it was working just fine for me. Then I got a new android phone and found it is not even in the Play store anymore. Spent a lot of time trying to run it down. The old app still works on my old disconnected phone but not very convenient is it? Can somebody please give an explanation for why it's been removed? I personally considered it a very useful app. I have been using and upgrading BIAB since the late 80's. This very much disappoints me.

There's an app?

This is the first I've heard of this.

There WAS an app. The app is no longer available in the Google Play store.

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - Importing MIDI Files

Did you know that Standard MIDI files can be read in to the Melodist or Soloist track within Band-in-a-Box? You can use all of the MIDI File, or select channels or a specific range of bars, using these steps:
1. Melody | Import Melody from MIDI File to select a MIDI file from disk using the file dialog.
2. Melody | Import Melody from Clipboard - when the MIDI data is already copied from another program to the
clipboard.

A new window will open, asking for additional criteria - which channels, # of bars to offset..., # of bars to import, include lyrics, include patch changes - and more! Head to our online manual Chapter 10: Working with MIDI to learn more!
