Good Begginings Very cool app. I love how linux is finally getting into the light. This app is great if you have some general linux knowledge to get it going. Only thing I'd say is to have better integration into Banshee's categories (like videos, playlist, ect). Would give 5 stars if it was a little more easier to get it connected to network. Overall very good remote app.
Works pretty well If you're techie enough to setup the banshee remote listener extension, you'll love the relative ease of this little app. Next/Prev/play/pause works great. Phone's volume rocker controls volume (but no ui element to show you it's working). The ux around browsing the banshee db is a little rough, and it doesn't seem to allow selecting a different song.
Simple and good Now I can connect my Ubuntu 12.10 laptop to the speakers and control music from my Android phone!!! What else do I want? Thanks a lot! Update: Lately I can't change the author from Android, even if I pick a different song it goes back to the one selected on the PC. UPDATE Now I switched from Banshee to Clementine. Much better and better remote control too.
Good start This lightweight application is very useful. But maybe for better user experience I hope it'll keep in standby mode (and minimized) after I close the main window. I also noticed it asks me to make sure banshee database is on my SD card while I have no option to check it directly from the application. I think this issue is come with Android recent permission to write the SD card. IMHO, it'll be better if user could choose where to put the DB.
Welp, it's awesome If you have a phone running android and use banshee (any os) then you should get this. Quick and easy setup (or easy to follow steps on the site in the description box), works great, and allows you to DJ away from your computer. good stuff all around.
I love it but it needs work. This app is great but it needs a few bug fixes that I've found over the past fgew weeks of using it. - I cannot remove and old server that I have added. - On my computer if I select a band such as "The Arcade Fire", then on my phone using the app, cannot change Artists. It will only continue playing the band selected on my computer. I've tried to change artists from my phone many times but it doesn't do anything but go back to the current song playing. I've also tried changing songs/artists by chooseing a different genre/song. It would be nice if there was a "Play All" instead of only being able to play one artist. The Banshee app also crashes a lot. Version 4.4
Removed the port 7 dependency to get through the firewall. Opening port 8484 should now be enough.
