Needs a lot of work! Good concept, but can be so much better. I'm being polite giving this 3 stars. It's very basic at the moment. Doesn't have a file cache, sorts by artist only, no playlists, no queueing system... Ends up limiting the user very much. Don't see myself using this, unless the enhancements are done . Wouldn't mind paying for the real thing. Not worth a user's time and effort to be honest.
Great app but needs an update for its manual The webpage only explains how to install the plugin but _not_ *how* to connect the app to the plugin. Struggled for 10min... So for those who wonder, too: 1.Install plugin by just copying it into the plugin folder in .locale. 2.install app 3.Install Fing(network app) 4.Open Rythmbox, go to plugins and activate remotebox 5.Open Fing; find your PC's IP, copy it 6.Open Remotebox app, it will request a IP to connect to, paste the copied IP Address into it and click the 'connect' button and you are done. Have fun!
Functional but very lacking Everything seems connect and run properly. The reason that I can't use this for regular use is that whenever I select a song from an album in the app, the next song queued to play is always the first song in my rhythmbox library, no matter how the library is sorted. I'd also like to see the current song being played on the android client.
As a simple remote, it works I used to use banshee, but always had connection issues/weird lagging, so I tried this out. It is simple to get up and running, but there are two things I don't like. 1. My file list does not change extremely often. Can't this be cached and update in the background or on-demand? 2. I would really like to see what's currently playing (banshee did this with album art even). This would be great, and even better (and beyond banshee) would be to see what's next in the current list.
Great start! Now I don't have to get off the couch to change tracks etc :-) Perhaps some simple new features could be: - a "goto current playing song" button; - a better scrolling widget, one that can allow you skip whole letters at a time. It sometimes has trouble connecting for some reason and my Samsung 7.2 TAB can't seem to download the song list. Hope you keep working on it Thanks heaps. Edit: downgraded rating as it tends to throw java exceptions a lot. Good when it works.
Ok, but still lacking I was so excited to use this app! Sad thing is that you can only filter by artists. I probably wont really use this app. I want to filter by albums and playlists. This is not available at all. A search function would be usefull aswell. When these features are available, I'll use this app every day.
- Fixed menu for downloading file list.
