Updated review below (Original review: I purchased this app because Double Twist has the wonderful capability of rewinding just a drop, by holding the rewind button. I'm deeply disappointed that it's not here. Not worth my money without it. Please add this feature!!!!) UPDATE: the hold-rewind feature was added! Changed my review to five stars. Excellent
Good app, did most of what I've want from a player. The offline feature needs work, why does it download the whole album again after I've streamed it? Where are the caching options? So if I loop an album that's in the cloud it will stream it every time a track is replayed. Separate streaming and offline download for wifi/mobile options needed too.
I like it but I wanted to use it to listen to my audiobooks. But some of the filenames in the audiobooks are the same, tho they have different track numbers. So the duplicate name files don't show in the app, and even after I manually renamed the duplicated files and did a manual scan to update the app from the cloud, the renamed files have still not appeared. Is there a way to fix this please? Cos otherwise it's great! Edit: thank you for your suggestion, I have tried unlinking and relinking my cloud account but the files are still missing. 😔 Is there a way you could make an option to include duplicate files if someone wished?
Initially very happy with this app until I realized it was butchering album contents with its duplicate song filtering during scan. It shouldn't be removing tracks based on song names. It appears to remove duplicates even when from different artists. Very irritating when I open an album to play and only 2 of the original set of 12 is available. Back to Beat.
Cannot use it for the features it offers without giving it my Google login. I would rather register with my email address to avoid this security risk. I never supply my social media and Google logins to programs. Supplying such access is normally done by other apps by giving app permissions to cloud storage, not fully registering with the developer using a Google sign-in. While the general public is not IT security experienced and accepts providing direct Google logins, I am experienced and cannot put my security at risk when it is unnecessary in order to have features such as Chromecast like other apps can do without my Google login. Besides, my cloud storage is with another vendor which the app says it supports. So, there still is no reason to give my Google login information. I would be willing to try again if the developer provides another less restrictive option.
This is really a fantastic player, I've been looking for something like this for a long time now! Just one request - if possible, could you please implement a Yandex.Disk cloud storage support? It would be great! I would appreciate feedback on this.
