A decent free Subsonic app...but UltraSonic is still somewhat better For free, I cannot complain. I wanted an app to connect to my Ampache server via HTTPS and this worked. Bandwidth limitation to help save some data usage on mobile is a huge plus! It has a much better interface than then any other free Subsonic apps, and above and beyond any native Ampache apps (mostly all dead anyway). Still, it is not without its limitations. The audio focus is way off. Not only does it mute the music when navigation kicks in, but it mutes the navigation audio as well. Kind of useless at this point. Gapless playback is not available (the first attempt to play streaming ogg files will just stop and skip to the next song after 20 seconds; would have to skip back to play correctly...just got annoying after a while). It's a good app for those that don't really expect or need too much. But, it lacks quite a bit that Ultrasonic (also free...but dead project) does better (list by album title, gapless playback, correct audio focus, and being able to list my video catalog and play them). Since the Ultrasonic project looks like it's dead, I'm really hoping this one will catch up.
I have a 4.4.2 KitKat phone, and it won't let me put any apps on the SD card, however, since SubSonic updated, the default folder is on the SD card properly. They added unlimited preset servers! You rock! This app is now a bright shiny piece of gold! This is one of my most valuable pieces of free software on my phone/PC! I heard you can use your PC and make this work with Google ChromeCast too! If I could request 1 feature/modification it would be.... umm.... there is NOTHING I can think of!! A+ Job. *note:(unless it was updated) If users have problems with music not showing up, make sure all your music is in SUB-Folders, because they don't seem to show up if their in the root folder, such as if you add "c:\music" as a media folder and have "c:\music\Song.mp3" then that song wouldn't show up, but "c:\music\fun\song.mp3" will, because it's in 1 folder deeper than you typed in the java web setup, which was "c:\music\"
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.
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.)
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
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.
