Q: Does Global-Sync show the same phrase between Macs and iPhones? Even in different time zones?
A: Yes, it will be the same phrase around the world, as long as your device's time is accurate.
Q: Global-Sync isn't synced, and phrases change at different times! Is this a bug?
A: Probably not. First, the two devices each have to have their own accurate time-of-day set. Secondly, they must all have the same "Time Interval" set (for example, "every 10 minutes".) Each time interval has its own suite of synced phrases, sort of like a TV channel... you all have to be on the same channel to get the same stream of phrases.
Q: My favorite color is blue, I mean green... can I change the text color to that?
A: Not in this release, but if this is something you and your friends really want, let me know and I can add it.
Q: Somebody said you hid some of your music in here... where is it?
A: In the Mac version, simply open the About box from the "Pass the Phrase" application menu, and you should hear it. On the iPhone/iPad, click the (?) icon, and then click the [CREDITS] button to hear it.
Q: What's with the table-cloth as background?
A: The app started out as something that could give quick ideas for business names, as if you were sketching out ideas "on the back of a napkin." So I took some photos of my wife's wonderful home-spun and home-woven napkins and placemats for fun. Well, it made sense to me at the time.
