Bingo Machine handles everything for you. You bring a bingo card, Bingo Machine does everything else. It emulates the traditional role of the "bingo caller" - no more losing balls or spending hundreds on professional electronic bingo caller machines. Bingo Machine will: - Randomly call all 90, or 75 (based on preference) numbers of a Bingo game. - Optionally call them at regular intervals, automatically. - On the iPhone, review recent numbers instantly or see an overview of the entire game, in one tap. On the iPad, Bingo Machine takes advantage of the expanded screen real estate to ensure your previously called numbers are always visible. - Bingo Machine can even speak the numbers for you, so it becomes a talking bingo machine, too, using a real human voice. - Display the numbers on-screen, or connect to an external display through AirPlay or an Apple TV-Out Connector to push the current number onto a bigger screen or projector. This is useful for a group or charity event, ensuring people do not miss the balls being called. To use this feature, simply connect to an Apple TV and enable AirPlay Mirroring, or plug in an Apple TV-Out connector cable, and the external display becomes active. The audio of the calls can also be sent over AirPlay to external speakers, if desired. AirPlay Mirroring is supported on the iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or the new iPad.* Bingo Machine is a perfect choice for group and charity events too, to remove the need for dedicated calling machines, without the otherwise-expensive cost of renting or purchasing one of the electronic callers. Other bingo machine software is clunky and complex; Bingo Machine for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad is the opposite - simple and functional. *To enable AirPlay Mirroring, open the AirPlay settings and enable "Mirroring'. As stated before, only certain iOS devices support this feature.
