TapDancer -Android OS :UEF/HQ files to beeb/elk

Have been playing with this last month, and confirm it's =D>

Plays all .UEF and .uefHQ files from a mobile phone or tablet from the earphone socket to your beeb /elk cassette DIN ear socket :D

Only files it does not like are .CSW tape image files.

I have tried with lots of different ways to convert .UEF/UEFhq/CSW files to .WAV (FreeUEF, BackToLife) with only about 40% success :(

This App plays them all 95%, the other 5% it has trouble with are 'stream' files, like Firebird releases, Revs & Space Hi-Way :?

Happy 'cassette' playing, without "Block?", "Data?", "Rewind tape" 8)

I gave the app a try but it does not seem to do anything when i chose a .uef to play, just sits there doing nothing. Must admit I only tried it with a couple of .uef files.

hi Peter,
open App on decent android Mobile phone /Tablet, pick your .UEF or .UEFhq file with the Eject bottom far left of 'tape deck', it will convert it to something, then in the counter box right of 'tape' it will show >000 (ie 327), then press Play on right of Eject and the counter will decrease as it plays through.
Hope that helps....

Thats the problem it sits on the convert screen (after slecting the file from the eject button) and the bar does not go up to show its converting it it just sits there :(
