Hi guys/gals, just to give an update on the next update (see what I did there)
I had to pull the update I uploaded a few days ago from apple as I found a major problem with a null pointer that was creeping up everywhere, causing major crashing galore. I though best to delay the update and fix the problem, instead of giving you guys/gals a dodgy update.
Well I have since fixed the bug with some bug spray and I am just about to upload the new update to apple again, so probably not going to see anything til the end of next week/beginning of following week now. Sorry for the wait
I took the chance though to add one more feature, which allows caching of artwork/lyrics to speed up the remote. After running the app for a while and caching starts to work, you'll notice a considerable speed difference in the remote
Also, this enabled me to add an option to change artwork for an album with something in your photo album by touching for longer than 3 secs on the displayed artwork.
Below is just a list of definite features in the update im uploading:
Autodiscovery with bonjour: DONE
It should automatically find all your devices for you (No need to manual add anymore). I have left manual adding in there, just incase people do want to set static ones (such as controlling your device over the internet (forward port 5555 to ur roku device for extra fun when your away and someone is at home
), Also needed so apple can exactly do that to test the app on my device)
Alphabetic track order changed to normal track ordering: DONE
There was an option in the roku spec, ive set it so it does alphabetic when you list all your songs, but for everything else it is done by track order. (iTunes users, i understand what was happening now, iTunes lists things by lastPlayed unless you tell to otherwise)
Radio, Internet Radio and Preset Controls: DONE
Have add option to choose and play presets and internet radio presets
Artist -> Album -> Songs: DONE
Lyrics Download: DONE
Using Lyricwiki.org api
You can toggle through the different snooze times/off
You can switch alarms on or off. Cant really do anymore as roku spec doesnt give any other commands, so cannot get alarm/snooze details or set specific times etc..
Once pulled off the net once, both are cached in the app for later use. When app closes, image data is saved to ipod/iphone and then reloaded when app restarts. Makes major improvements in speed of remote after caching starts to return hits
Correct Album Artwork
A long touch press (3 secs) on a displayed artwork in the remote will open your photo album, where you can select a replacement artwork image for that album. Recommended size is 325x330px
Sorry again for the delay, hope you think its worth it
