Streams well but the media browser is a hot mess This app definitely successfully streams to airplay which is first and foremost what i bought it for. It seems to the be the only app for android that does this. The guys who make Airfoil claim its impossible so, kudos for that. It cuts out from time to time and, every once in a while, it'll get a weird time stretch sound or double up the audio playing, but it doesn't cut out any more or less than itunes does on any of my comps. The file/media browser is atrocious though. Quite often i'll select a track from my collection and it will play something entirely different. Also, if you select an artist from the artist list and then decide you want to hear something else from your general song collection, when you hit the song tab it only shows you songs from the artist you had already selected. And the browser function doesnt work. You can can browse to your various music folders and see all the files but when you try and select one to play, nothing happens. In short, if you must stream from your android device to airplay then this is the only way to do it. Is it worth the price though? It pales in comparison to poweramp as a music player and they seem to be at the same price point.
Very poor! This app is rubbish. I have been using it for 2 hours and so far it has crashed twice and every third or fourth song sounds blurred and muffled! How does one obtain a refund?
Unstable but a starting point There needs to be an app that emulates Airplay so this is welcome. Rogue Amoeba who produce Airfoil for Mac and PC say they can't do this because Google won't provide the full coding. There's a big market for Android users to be able to play from their phones and tablets to Airplay I should think. With further development this could be a very useful app. How about Spotify support? Now that would be something
Total crap. I've had this app on 4 different phones, over the last several years, and it's never worked. I keep thinking they'll fix it, but they never do. Absolute junk.
Update required - core issues need resolving ... Device: HTC One. Non-rooted The good: Finds Airplay Express device on network ok and is easy to set up. Sounds come out. Excellent! The bad: 1. Sometime between 5-30 mins the audio starts to break up. It sounds like it is stuttering, with a little bit of stretching. If you pause the track, then play again, the problem goes away. Note that I play 80 min long podcasts, so people who play short 5 min songs may not see this if the player effectively resets between tracks. 2. The player: When connected to Airp
Average Its easy to install and connect to airport express, it also detects all the music on the hard drive which is useful. There are however times when the application keeps crashing and refuses to play the song / album.
