Ratings and Reviews
It works, and well
As of this writing on Jan 14, this app works. Tonight I downloaded the new version of 'Amarra for Tidal' to my MacBook and when I checked to see what this new update brought, I saw that the remote functionality that many users have been waiting for has been released. Now, the OSX AfT app is buggy, not very pretty beyond the surface, and a pain in general... but it sounds nice so many of us audiophiles are willing to be what they call "early adopters" in the tech world. Yes, this common releasing of unpolished work is not going anywhere, for many books actually advocate this way of developing technological solutions. So, while your music sounds better, your interface with said software will be slow to deliver the same level of polish of the actual TIDAL app. That said, this remote app (I guess because of the developer kit for iOS devices) seems more polished and fluid than the desktop experience. While your simply remote controlling the desktop app, it is a great asset to your listening experience and is worth downloading. 👍🏼. One bug I found immediately is an extension of the desktop software, and that is that my multiple hundred of track playlists don't show all the tracks included when you open them. I see that It recognizes they are there, but they do not show up unless you attempt to reload the playlist several times. Polish polish polish, and this will be a lovely app soon.
Any sonic benefits are over shadowed by a sluggish response and buffering
Having a remote interface is necessary unless you like having the tv on all the time. I am rating this 2 stars because it does function, But this better improve quickly if this is going to gain traction over using tidal's own interface. The response time is very frustrating and the app doesn't have the ability to remember the album lists. So if you close the app and reopen you have to wait for all your album lists to refresh all over again. Opening the app scrolling to an album and then streaming it over my fast wifi can take several minutes and that's if nothing crashes in between. I do like not needing to have the tv on while I am streaming tidal but this needs improvement! Any sonic benefits over the standard tidal site in my opinion aren't worth the added frustration of using this app and the Amarra for tidal software. The software gets 2 stars as well for the same reasons.
A Huge Step Backward AVOID!
Got sucked into purchasing yet another Amarra upgrade (Amarra 4...) promising to cut the cord from iTunes. I downloaded it as well as this application and they both are horrible, not near ready for use or release. Amarra 4 scanned my song list (slowly) then failed to save it when I closed it. I had to repeat the process again the next time I opened it, then it crashed. This app is no better, as neither this app or the software showed my album art, and it failed to control my music anywhere near as nicely as Apple Remote does. This app is a huge step backwards toward Remote 1.0 and 2010. Don't bother!
