Dismal app letting down great hardware
I'm a lifelong Cyrus fan with an admiration for their hifi products that goes back to my first Cyrus 1 amp. I recently took the plunge into streaming with a Streamline v2 and thought 'oh great, I can control it from my iPad - happy days'. Sadly, the truth falls a little short of this. The Cadence app is quite the most pitiful excuse for a bit of software I've ever seen (and I work in business software). First of all, it's really flaky. It crashes often on my ipad and at the moment, it just won't connect to my Streamline. On the rare occasions it does connect, I almost wish it hadn't as its like being transported to what we all thought computer software should be like in 1986. To say that the functionality is limited is something of an understatement - no playlists, no configurable UI, song titles shown with file extensions, no 'rich' functionality at all. This isn't Sonos controller or iTunes. The user screens are dull and ugly in equal measure and the whole thing feels like it was knocked up as a high school project (where it got a C minus). When I look at the beautiful Streamline, with its amazing sound and fabulous build, I can't understand how the same company could be responsible for the hideous crock that is Cadence. Come on Cyrus, you can do loads better than this!!!
Poor - Needs Total Update
This app has not been updated for a long time. It has fallen behind other hi fi streamer manufacturers. The issues Cyrus need to improve are:
1. Better resolution - the screen for the particular track being played is very poor
2. The app often crashes, this problem happens especially on start up and the best way to solve the problem is to continuously delete the app and re-download
3. If you have more than one streamer the app struggles to find different streamers. Again best way to resolve is again delete and download the app
4. The streamer/app will only read the storage drive associated with the streamer. It does not pick up yr iPad, so you can’t stream music from your iPad or similar.
5. The app is not interactive with any online music data bases, unlike others.
All in all the app is seriously falling behind its competitors and is need of a total update and refresh and improved stability.
Could do better
Volume control doesn't work, it only wants to cut the level to something like -30
Update - now I've read the instructions this is deliberate and the max level can be set (haven't tried it yet)
If you select rotary volume control, you can't then go back to select music.
Update - I think this was because my iPad had lost contact with the stream. It works ok today.
Sometimes looses contact with the server.
I've now also tried the iPhone version on a 5s - keeps crashing.
iPad version is much more stable.
Both were running iOS 8.2
A great feature addition would be a search for artist/track/album etc
The Cyrus stream XP 2qx is great sounding.
App Needs improving.
