What's New in Version 3.3.1
- Interface improvements
- Operation with Chromecast improved
Album Artwork Request
Works great as UPNP player! Big request is that the folder icons should be represented by the album cover artwork once you are at artist level or album level. Right now, the album artwork only displays when you drill down to the track level of a folder. It would really improve the browsing experience if at artist level it could be the artwork of the first album it finds or a composite quad image of 2 or more album covers. At the album level, displaying the album artwork would be ideal as opposed to the folder icon currently displayed. People connect to the artwork...not folder icons. Thanks.
Does not work with IP6
I have been using this app for couple of months. It was very good and useful until it needed to connect to remote DLNA server over IP6. This app on my iPhone will not connect to server. My DLNA servers are working fine. If my phone is connected to internet through Wifi, app can connect to DLNA server. I have contacted developer, however they didn't/couldn't resolve this issue. So, app is just sitting here useless!!
It will connect but nothing else, does not play any video or show pictures.
