Airfoil Satellite: Another fine Rogue Amoeba product
What's New in Version 1.1.1
* Critical bug fix: Airfoil Satellite will no longer incorrectly pause other music at launch.
Pausing fixed! - Apple Watch app please...
When opening the application music stops playing, also takes awhile to connect to airfoil on my desktop. Most of the time it doesn't connect at all, and you have to close the app then reopen it. Please fix, the old remote application never stopped the music when connecting to airfoil...
Update: pausing problem now fixed. The app works perfectly now, you guys did a great job. Everything is starting to come together with 5.0, I'm starting to see the vision... lol
Now if you guys can add an Apple Watch version I would be really happy!
Lagged a bit before update, now lags more. Feels like a beta.
Using a MBP with Airport Extreme out multiple devices. When this app works it provides a nice experience having multiple speakers synced up throughout the house. Unfortunately it randomly glitches out under the current version, losing signal with the satellite devices and seeming to get out of sync, which sounds horrible until the app seems to fix itself.
I love the concept of this app and have high hopes the devs will continue to make it better, but at least with my current setup I will not use this with friends over due to how glitchy it is.
Has a few issues
I've used this app almost daily since it first came out. When it works it works well. However it has a tendency to disconnect as it appears it does not have very robust error recovery for lost packets. I went back and forth with support on this issue for a while without a solution. Also once in a while it can consume 100% of the CPU causing my iPhone SE to get warm and drain the battery quickly. You can force quit the app and restart it to resolve this. Its infrequent enough that its not a major issue but a minor annoyance. If they can fix these two issues I'd give it 5 stars.
