Features & Bugs
Time for offline listening capabilities. The Jriver server will stream media. That's fine when you have wifi. Otherwise you incur data charges. There is plenty of storage available on my iPhone. I'd like there to be a way to download music from Jriver to use with JRemote offline. Also, it would be nice if this app would provide remote access to the DSP settings to select output format, volume adjustments, and effects.
It was a GREAT app for Jriver audio, but there are serious bugs evident on my iPhone 6s+.
Bug # 1 - when the screen auto rotates, the player malfunctions by shrinking the cover image and merging the playlist into the same screen. The player no longer functions correctly. A restart of the app corrects this until autorotation occurs again.
Bug # 2 - when two or more albums have the same name, they appear as one -- merged together in the "Recent" folder. Sometimes a newly added album will not appear. Instead another album with the same title by a different artist will appear.
I've waited months for these bugs to be fixed by the developers, but they remain. They were not fixed in the most recent update. I've upgraded to the iPhone 7 plus and the same bugs are present
Other than than that, the app works well, but it is unstable with the autorotate bug.
I will change my review to 5 stars if the bugs are fixed.
Streams ok, but usability... ugh
I have been using this for years now, and am still shocked and dismayed that you cannot sort media at all. Viewing 100s or 1000s of items in ascending alpha only is not even programming from the 1970s. Filters? There are none you can apply, either, to what would be the almost useful Recently Imported category.
Adding a simple sort function to every list of media titles would make this a 5/5. At the very least how about a Sort by date descending order for videos?. Then at a bare minimum you could view more recent movies.
Wading through 1000s of picture uploads from iPhone cameras when mixed in with feature movies just is not useful at all.
JRemote: outstanding access to media library
I have waited for years for this program. With the JRemote app, I can use my phone to access all my movies and music stored on my PC (using an 8 TB external hard drive). On my PC, the media is organized through JRiver Media Center.
A prior post indicated that there are problems with the organization of the media. This is just plain wrong. On the PC, JRiver allows media to be organized by a wide variety of metadata such as artist, album, or genre. These same categories can then be perused remotely through JRemote.
Occasionally, the software needs a reboot if the connection is lost but I use it all the time when I'm in my car, or working in the backyard or in bed at night. It works faster when connected to wifi although this isn't necessary if one has a decent cellular signal.
One other point is that the music can then be streamed via Bluetooth to a $100 Bose speaker and the sound is fantastic.
