The new tile based navigation when browsing from a server is very slow. The old list style was much better; at least you could see the artist names even while the images were still loading. An option to go back to that would be great.
This app allows me to play my flac encoded audio files from my Note 4 phone and (still using the same phone) a Western Digital media system at full quality via my Yamaha A/V anp. Vastly superior to bluetooth and no skipping! However, the skin for the app is dire ... trying to read track data with dark grey text on a light grey background can be impossible. We need the ability to alter the colours and then this app would be superb!
Uses Spotify Connect and that is almost useless in a product like this. This is a social app, not a single user system. Yamaha is no where near to be a competitor for Sonos. Even the small devices does not have the sound quality of Sonos. And Sonos is really NOT a good sounding system.. But most important no Tidal. The last is a total no go for more MusicCast devices.
I previously gave this app five stars but now that the navigation has tiles it has become very slow and difficult to use. Bad move Yamaha.
The app does not have the ability to randomly play songs from your music library. This feature should be part of any music player.
I have to reconfigure every freaking day to use it...
