Very slow It's quicker to get up and use the touch screen on the pc (connected to the DAC). Selecting an album~20 seconds wait; Trying to open an album to select a track either just hangs, or incurs another ~30 seconds wait to make your pick. Albeit this is whilst upsampling output to DSD256. Nevertheless, eos remote app processes the exact same commands in about 8 seconds.
I honestly don't know what some people are expecting for $10.00. This app is the perfect compliment to Media Center. It allows me to sit on my easy chair and easily control my 77K music files. Looks good, feels good, and simple to learn. A couple of tips. Tools/Options/Media Network/Advanced lets you customize the view and how things are presented on the app. Also you can view the current playlist by right swiping when a file is playing. You can also delete or move songs around in the playlist. Then you can save the playlist and it will show up on your computer. When the app opens, there is a search icon. Don't use that one. I click on audio, then artist, and then search. Once I click on an artist, I have it set up to list all the artist songs. Click on a song and it goes to the end of playing now. Couldn't be easier.
Disappointing This doesn't seem like a better offering then eos or even gizmo. It's just a different look or template. I would call this app LAZY. This can't be the app that Apple fans were ecstatic over.
High price for an incomplete app. Gizmo is free and nearly works the same. Images still not properly supported on devices and Google Cast. Bought BubbleUPnP for only 3,99 and it works like a charme. Shame On you J.River.
Better than Gizmo, but also $10 more expensive. Has a lot of potential, but lacks some really obvious functionality like being able to see the current playlist. Doesn't remember your place in the library hierarchy well either, so you're constantly re-navigating. Also, no controls in the pull-down menu.
Sorry but it is not worth the money. Other cheaper remotes are much better. And it is now no longer under active development as the guy responsible for writing it has left the company
