Roon is essential for my music life, and this app generally works well. Love being able to use Android device as an end point. Recently however I have found it has a lot of stability issues with the app; it will either hang or close itself (maybe Android kills it when it hangs). The phone version also doesn't play well with the Room Radio functionality (tablet version is better at this).

Roon was fabulous until version 1.8 came out. Now everything is buggy. I just want to listen to my music and the remote hangs. I have to force quit the remote several times before it does anything (this is a regular problem from several devices, not intermittent)... and when I'm unlucky, there are other random problems that require me to reboot the core or deauthorize the core to get things working again. The new features are not worth the hassle...

I absolutely love Roon and enjoy the decentralized aspect of music storage and playback. I do not like the Android app at all though. Why oh why can't it behave like other music players or remotes for that matter. Take Plex - the nearest thing to competition Roon has. When I use it as a remote to play music, it stays in the pull down shade, volume works as expected. Not so much with Roon. And don't get me started on Plex being able to allow music over the net ( ie Android auto)...
