Please note, Z-Subsonic requires Subsonic server (http://subsonic.org) to function. To continue using the API feature of Subsonic beyond 30 days, the developer requires it to be licensed. The API feature allows client software to connect to Subsonic without using the web interface. You can get a license by donating to the Subsonic project. More information is available at http://www.subsonic.org/pages/apps.jsp. Please note that using Subsonic through the web interface never requires licensing.
What's New in Version 2.9
Fix for crash on iOS6
Acceptable SubSonic app
I used Z-Subsonic for quite a while, and it generally worked alright, but there were a few annoyances I had:
- It was never clear to me if it was possible to manually cache songs or just show what was in the cache and play it, so the caching feature was never very useful to me.
- It does not have a "random album" feature like the web player
- After you choose an album to play, the browse view goes back to the top level. This is extremely annoying if you have any folder hierarchy whatsoever.
- Has not been updated for quite a while - although it works with newer iPhones, iPads and iOS versions, it does not natively support them.
That said, it does manage to play music without crashing, which is more than I can say for some of the other iOS SubSonic apps.
In general I find iSub superior in every aspect -- in particular the cache is much better thought out.
App ruins listening experience
App has to be left open and the phone must be unlocked in order for the next song in the queue to play, otherwise I end up waiting for the next song to play for ten minutes and then have to unlock the phone and reopen the app. Also some songs will get dropped completely at the best part and it will go onto the next one. How am I supposed to enjoy music if I am constantly waiting for the song to be dropped. Running on an iPhone 3GS on att in the westside of la with full bars 100% of the time. Totally wasted $5 on app. I'd like a refund.
Works 100% No problems!
This application has served me well and continues to do so! I would recommend using it with FreeBSD ports as this is what I use personally.
