Still lacking decent cache options

After trying it for many times, i am bound to give up. It’s a nice looking app, but the caching is absolutely horrible. When u cache an album it afterwards gets overwritten by other albums or songs you play. Useless. Beside this issue it would be #1 subsonic app without a doubt.

Great program to stream front subsonic. 4 stars! !

Great program to stream front subsonic. 4 stars and it wil be 5 stars if you could add lyric support.

Reactie van ontwikkelaar ,

play:Sub already will display lyrics received from the Subsonic server.
I you select the context menu on the player screen, then "About", you will get to an information page containing lyrics, artist and album information.

play:Sub depends on the server to supply the lyrics.

Newer versions of the Subsonic server software read lyrics from metadata tags in addition to using an online lyrics service.

Excellent subsonic player

This app is very good, especially compared to the other Subsonic streaming apps. I like the design a lot. It plays ALAC files as well as the other popular formats. The performance with large playlists (> 10.000 songs) is impressive.
