Sikh Sangeet version 3.0 for Android

Summary:

New Android version 3.0 ready to download in Android Play Store. You can also opt-in to beta releases for cutting edge features. We need TESTERS! Contact us in comments if you’re interested!

Details:

It’s been quite some time since we have updated the Sikh Sangeet web/app. With the help of a sevadar, we have been hard at work building the new version of Sikh Sangeet app.

We have decided to focus first on the Android platform. It is probably our more popular platform (boasting over 6000+ at one time in its glory). The Android app was severely broken as well especially on newer platforms.

We have released a very basic version of the app that should get users with the bare minimum in listening to Sikh Sangeet media. Download from the Play Store now. In an agile manner, we will be releasing updates to fill in remaining functionality.

We are also experimenting with open Beta releases in the Play Store. Opt in and help us test as we iterate over experimental features. Provide feedback either through the Play Store app feedback screen. Or, contact us directly at admin@sikhsangeet.com.

Screenshots:

Changelog:

3.0.0 released October 8, 2016

  1. Total redesign
  2. New clean UI
  3. Fix broken music player

3.0.1 released October 17, 2016

  1. Add retry button.
  2. Show changelogs on startup.

Stay tuned for more!

Sikh Sangeet Web updated

The Sikh Sangeet website was long overdue for an update. The worst offender was the outdated media player.

Waheguru blessed me with some inspiration to do something about it. I started out upgrading the player and ended up with the following successful changes.

  1. Upgrade Player to latest supporting HTML5 with Flash fallback. Advantages:
    1. Mobile support: The Player should work on mobile devices as well as desktop.
    2. Seek support: You should be able to skip within the song without needing to load it fully first.
  2. Switch from PrototypeJS to jQuery. When we developed the site, the choice of a javascript framework was not as clearcut as it is today. A huge hindrance to all of it was the outdated and near-dead PrototypeJS library. We have now switched to the industry standard in jQuery.
  3. Minor code cleanup. There is still a huge amount of work left bringing Sikh Sangeet into modern tools and techniques.

With big changes, come big problems. Please report any problems in comments below.

PS: If you would like to help in any way with Sikh Sangeet, let us know.

Sikh Sangeet iPhone App updated for iOS 4

(We will update this with a link when App Store releases it publicly.)
Download link to the App Store (Remember to review it)

We’ve just submitted our iOS 4 update of the Sikh Sangeet App.  Sorry for taking so long in getting this out, but this whole iPhone app development process was not a particularly easy task. This was problematic because iOS4 SDK was not available for Mac OSX 10.5.8 Leopard, so we had to update our computer and development environment to Mac OSX 10.6.4 Snow Leopard, and go through a lot of other problems, like updating the Sikh Sangeet API, setup the new Mac, make code compatible with iOS 4, and do testing on a iPod Touch (iOS 4) device. Thank Waheguru we’re done.

The hold up is now in Apple’s hands. We’ve submitted the update, now Apple will probably take about a month to approve this application for the wider public.

    What’s New In Version 1.1

  1. iOS 4 support
  2. Selected song is shown below
  3. Bug-free Production Track API

Sikh Sangeet Android App

Download it from the Android Market (Remember to review it)

First, the Sikh Sangeet iPhone App, and now we bring you the Sikh Sangeet Android App. We wanted to bring Sikh Sangeet to the mobile platform with native functionality. That goal is slowly being achieved. Screenshots attached!

Our next mission will be to fix problems with the iPhone app. Please use the forum to report problems. Thanks.

Sikh Sangeet iPhone App

Download link to the App Store (Remember to review it)

We’ve been working hard for a couple of months trying to take Sikh Sangeet to the next level. We wanted to bring Sikh Sangeet to the mobile platform with native functionality. First, we worked diligently trying to put up an API for Sikh Sangeet’s vast collection. Then the API was used to quickly come up with a Sikh Sangeet App for the iPhone. Screenshots attached!

This is only the beginning, we hope to do big stuff in the future. Keep it locked!
