Great app, when it works. For some reason, starting a week or 2 ago, every song I play will randomly stop after a minute or 2. Not sure why. Possible that the latest Android security update hosed something. My subsonic server hasn't changed and plays songs just fine on a different client on my iPad. Hopefully this app hasn't been abandoned because it really is the best there is for Subsonic and Android.

This works well. Just two suggestions. In Android Auto, when playing the first track in a queue or playlist or album, the "prev" button is not present. This prevents me from restarting the first track if I'm in the middle of it, making me have to advance then go back. Other tracks work as expected (I can press "prev" once to restart the track, and once again to go back to the previous one). Other suggestion is a "stop" button to prevent a track from resuming when I reconnect to my car.

Used to love this app, happily paid for it, certainly got my moneys worth over the years, but moving on due to the glacial pace of updates and the current state of the app not keeping pace with more modern phones. At this point I cannot in good concience reccomend anyone paying for this. You can get the same or better from free android apps that work with all of the modern forks of subsonic that are not of the same unfortunate closed source nature that subsonic went (I always appreciated the open source github for this app). If I get some kind of notification of major updates in the future I will certainly come back, but until then, so long and thanks for the memories.
