The app is solid when everything's working. Unfortunately, I've had ongoing issues with two of the MusicCast devices, including regularly losing connectivity to the app. Aside from that, the interface is decent and connecting to audio sources is fairly straightforward. The search tool is adequate.

Revised UI is great. Integrates with my Yamaha receivers, RX-A780 and RX-A1080. This app works exceptionally well with Qobuz and Deezer with song progress bar scrubbing and elapsed time counter. Reports bit depth now. Handles all of my sources well with the exception of Amazon Music. In terms of stability, I'm able to run the app concurrently on multiple devices and they all are able to take control without issue.

In general the app is nice and makes it easy to control my Yamaha network receivers. For basic streaming from online services it works nicely and it is easy to link multiple receivers. I did not have any issues with finding local media servers. It needs additional features for playing music on local servers. (1) A search function. (2) A sort function. It plays by track number, this does not work with multiple discs. So add a sort by track, disc, filename, etc. (3) Support for Replay Gain tag.
