Thanks Everyone!

Wow, I must admit the ForzaTune4 release for iOS blew away our expectations.  I wanted to drop a note to everyone to say thanks and let you know I am reading all your comments and doing my best to keep up with them.

I am also happy to report ForzaTune 4 Android is almost complete!  I will post a signup link soon for people interesting in getting notifications.

In the short term I will be posting some more help topics (on aero concepts and other common questions), updating the site and creating new tutorials.  Lots to do!  Thanks for your patience.

ForzaTune 4 is Now Available!

ForzaTune 4 is available for purchase on the App Store. Here is the link…

Use this new app to get a great foundation for your suspension tune as quickly as possible.

Frequently asked questions:

Q.  What is Tune Stability?

It’s an easy way to add more oversteer or understeer.  Lower the percentage to make your car have a little more oversteer.  I will be turning this into a simple slider that lets you go over 100% (increasing understeer in the process).  EDIT:  Version 4.0.1 has this update!

Q.  Why do you only have RWD, AWD, FWD?  Does engine position matter?

Engine position is not needed with the way these calculations are designed.   Our tuning genius Feuerdog devised a way to make it even simpler using weight distribution.  Simpler is better (and faster!).

Q.  First time I load the app I get some crazy numbers for the springs, camber, etc…

Simply close the app and reopen it to fix this issue–it will only happen the first time you download.  Version 4.0.1 will be out this week to fix the small glitch.

Thanks again for the great comments, ratings and overall awesome support from the Forza community!

Forza 4 is Here! There will be a new ForzaTune App

Forza 4 is out!   The physics and suspension geometries are more advanced than anything before.  So much so that we plan to release an even better, separate application. I am hoping to have this new application ready by the end of November with support for iOS4 and iOS5.  Please sign up for notifications and you’ll be the first to know when it’s available!

Thanks as always for the support!  If you have suggestions for the new app PLEASE shoot us an email:  feedback@forzatune.com

Are you using the current app for FM4?   If so, feel free to post comments on where it works and where it’s not in Forza 4.

ForzaTune 2.0.2 Available (iOS4 Tested)

onphone2iOS4 users should be able to take full advantage of the new ForzaTune updates with this 2.0.2 release.  This update fixes the missing ‘DONE’ button on the keypad. To recap all of the 2.0 goodness I have copied the original announcement below…

Biggest Update of the Year

New look and interface, new tunes and tons of features added to the free version. Full version is still only US$1.99!

Look Familiar?

Fans of Forza3 will appreciate the new FM3-inspired interface and color scheme. Even the app icon gets a new twist to coincide with the game. 2.0 not only looks better but works better too with a change to allow use on the iPad. Other changes make it easier to use the Car Info and Gearing screens.

Drift Tunes are Here!

We use to get 5 emails a day requesting drift tunes–well thanks for the encouragement and enjoy the new base tunes designed for going sideways and maintaining better control with the tail out.

The full version also gets the closely-guarded, personal base tune (called Pro Grip) developed by Feuerdog. Pro Grip is only available on the ForzaTune app. It is such a great base tune you may get a little giddy the first time you try it. Like a kid on Christmas.

That’s all I am going to write for now. Words don’t do it justice–just download one of the new versions and see for yourself!

iOS4 Keyboard Fix is Awaiting Apple Approval–For Real This Time

UPDATE:  2.0.1 update did not go as planned and did not fix the keyboard issue for iOS4.  I was having some difficulty testing for all the iPhone/iPod/iPad versions in the wild and a big thanks to the emails/comments for the heads up.  I have already uploaded 2.0.2 and was able to properly test it for iOS4.  Again, sorry for the inconvenience to all the early iOS4 adopters.

If you update to the latest iOS 4 you will notice that the “DONE” button disappears from the keypad.  A fix was submitted to the App store but it was not approved before the OS update was available.  In the meantime using the sliders is a temporary fix for the suspension tune.  Thanks for understanding and being patient–I apologize for the inconvenience–I will post when Apple approves the update!

Announcing Gear Calcs in ForzaTune Premiere

onPhone_02

After receiving countless requests for gear tuning and researching the best way to make an easy-to-use gear calculator, we present the latest version of ForzaTune Premiere!

Two Apps in One

When you are racing within a class (such as B, A or S) your two biggest advantages are suspension and gear ratio tunes.  ForzaTune now includes tools to help you with both!

Gear Tuning Made Simple

Go ahead and try to find a single gear calculator that is both easy to use and requires minimal keypad input.  Several months of research and development brought together the best parts of every article and spreadsheet on gear tuning.  All you have to do is enter a few things about your car, a target top speed and you are guaranteed to have every gear soak up the powerband.

NOTE: if you have a car with a very low peak torque rpm (one of the inputs for the gearing app) you may get some crazy numbers…in that case just increase the peak torque rpm a few thousand rpm.

Thanks for the Continued Support and Feedback

These tunes are base tunes and will always benefit from your personal tweaks.  Likewise, the premium app continues to grow and evolve with your help–let us know how the app is working for you (email link is in the app).    Version 1.3 also includes updates to the suspension tune screen (to align with the game menus).  Drift and drag tunes are also in the works so check back often or sign up for our email list.

Download your copy now and enjoy the new features!

Updates Coming Soon…

Just a quick post…gear ratio calculator and drifting tunes are still under development.  The gear calculator took longer to develop than expected but it will be worth the wait–and hopefully it will be the easiest, most convenient gear calculator available.

It’s funny how it always takes more time to simplify something!  But that is the #1 ForzaTune priority: simple, effective tuning help.  Get your copy now if you haven’t already and you’ll get these updates (mid-Feb) for free.
