Continued improvement... or not Previous updates have been improvements. This one loses a whole load of my album art which was fine with the last version. Why do you torment me in this way? By all means make a new version LESS stringent about album art but please never release another version that is even more picky than the previous one. Otherwise your customers will hate you.
In essence I would have to agree with everything the review by Gianni Panetone said. Whilst each update does seem to provide some improvement, the fact does remain that the ability for the app (on Adroid & Windows 10) to consistently find my Node 2 player is now more than aggravating!
plus ça change... Bug ridden and no improvement on local Library management. Just behaviour changes requiring you to reinstall, upgrade, reindex ( in two ways ..) to be left worse off again. The hardware is/was good, but expensive (DAC used costs 1$). Yet the software will require you to work for them (testing) with support that just hold off & 'reach out' (in desperation?) to the dim/sloppy coders.... So very cool 🤔 With own NAS music collection and Chromecast audio this can be done a lot cheaper, and more reliable....👎
Infuriating. While the machine itself, when i works, is wonderful, you'll be lucky if you get more than a few days of problem free operation with this app. Problems include: devices not able to find the player consistently, art work disappearing, art work not loading at all after reindexing. It can take up to ten tries for it to return. Add to this the painful and laborious process you have to go through to correct artwork and artist information. The help people are always friendly and attentive but never admit fault..
Drops my device Constantly having to reload app. Driving me nuts. My friends say their Sonos doesn't have these problems. Hard to argue.
Bluesound are quick to respond through the forum (at least to acknowledge issues... A fix may take a touch longer) the app works fine for me as I use my node 2 purely as a streamer using services from Tidal, Spotify and also Deezer with no music data filed elsewhere to be catalogued and retrieved, access to all playlist is fast and faultless for me.
