A wonderful good day everyone
We have just released the update to Modstep 1.1 - the beta phase took longer than expected, but in the end we think it was worth it.
Be warned: modstep has changed a bit since the last version. Many new additions made it into the app, and other features were revamped or completely replaced to make navigating the UI a tad easier. We will continue this process as we think we're not quite done yet - but this is first step towards our goal
Please let us know what you think about it!
We've got an updated manual: http://www.modstep.net/manual
and will have the first in a series of new tutorial videos beginning of next week.
Until then, if anything is unclear: please ask!
To celebrate the release, modstep will be on sale for $14,99 until monday.
