Good, mostly I love Subsonic, but the app needs some attention. This was and still could be a great app. It still seems to work fine, but there haven't been any major tweaks or additions in a long time. Also, it recently started crashing (rebooting) my Galaxy S4 at random times. Ultrasonic seems to have fewer issues and is still free. (DSub has good reviews too, but it looks nearly identical to the official app (functionally) and costs $4.)
Issues. I'll start off saying this app is awesome. I can stream so many files from my PC to my phone and this is fantastic. But my issues are this. The app will not exit and gives errors and force closes when trying too. It seems to not be shuffling my entire library but choosing a certain amount of songs to shuffle instead. How do I login to my account online other than my home computer? I am using a Samsung galaxy s4 with the 4.3 o.s.
Awesome App! You won't find a better server/client music service anywhere that offers the features that Subsonic does. I have been running Subsonic for a few years now and I can say with my hand on my heart it has never let me down. I have full control of my media through it, and can even decide what bandwidth each individual user will receive. You will not find the level of customization with any other music streamer. I highly recommend you download the Sindre Mehus version of the Subsonic app to get the best out of your server. I also highly encourage you to donate (as I have done), the dev has done a great job, and giving him some beer tokens means he can only keep making it better.
Love you long time I've used subsonic almost 5 years now. It's my life love. This app is good. I really miss the ability to specify cache location. I think this is a new android issue not allowing apps to save to SD càrd. Silly. It would be nice if in the library section if one of the options for folder was local android files. If this was the case I would not need another music app as well. The flow and layout is great. Not a 5 star app but darn fine
Very good audio player This is a solid player that let's you access you or a friend's music collection on the go. Many great features. My one suggestion (if I didn't just miss the feature) would be to give more control over the playback buffer. For example when a song is playing it will often pause to buffer. It would be nice to say don't start play back until 1mb or 1 minute of playback is available. There may be protocol limitations that prevent this feature, but if not that's one for my stocking this Christmas :)
Bluetooth issue I love this app. Most used on phone and at home but when in my car, this is the only media app that does not stream the id3 tag information to my Kenwood excelon dnn990hd head unit. Please fix!!!! Edit: it appears id3 yeah issue has been fixed. Now only thing missing is displaying album art on car unit. Keep up the good work though. Use this app every day
