For the next quick update I'd like to able to replace the text icons on the landscape view with proper looking icons (eg for home, back, alarm, power, shuffle, repeat). Anyone out there any good at making these or know of some I could use cause my Photoshop skills are useless.

The "fit-to-size of long text" option reduces very long lines into a very small nearly illegible font. Would it be possible to convert "long text" into two lines of a medium sized font to retain legibility? Thanks.

Hi Chris,
this is finally the update I've waited for, doing exactly what I envisioned for such a remote control. The caching works like a charme. To support you in still improving something good, I have a few more comments :D
  • In my Artists list, I suddenly find a lot of entries with appended artists in the form "artist1/artist2/artist3/...", sometimes resulting in ridiculous long entries. No matter how long, these obviously artificially created entries lead to nowhere. Clicking on it always ends up in a "not found" screen.
  • The purple header is a matter of taste, but at least not matching mine :shock:
  • Initially the cache did not work for some reason, and going back to artists or albums did a full remote scan again. But then all of a sudden it worked and since then comes very fast out of the cache. So it is fine with me now, but maybe internally there lurks some issue that might arise elsewhere in amore serious manner...
  • I am sometimes -- and guests always -- confused by the long time that "no information" shows up on the "play song" screen after a song was started. After some seconds (quite some, though) the data (title/artwork) usually shows up. While this data is being retrieved, a corresponding information ("retrieving data") would IMHO be less confusing than something that sounds like no data will show up at all.
Thanks again for this version!!

Bit confused by what you are wanting?

Sorry, I think my use of "playlist" instead of "song queue" is causing the confusion. I'll rephrase.

Suppose I would like to add all the songs from Artist = Eric Clapton, or Album = 461 Ocean Blvd, or Genre = Classic Rock to the existing song queue that I have playing. How would I do that with your app?

Also, I'm just looking more closely at the landscape mode of the app (Soundbridge remote view) and I notice that it is missing the "+" key that would allow you to add content to the song queue.

Congratulations Chris !

This is a real "Game Changer" for the Soundbridge. Absolutely the best.
Great to have the Album Art and Lyrics back ( I never saw them before).

I'm looking for more used M1001s so I can have this everywhere !
I use it with Rhapsody, Internet Radio, iTunes and Firefly.

I surmise that there is not one available...

Have a look here:
There's also Fireplay, but as it's a Flash based application, you can't use it with St. Jobs' phones.

Hi all
is anyone using this app with the M400 Home Music (Pinnacle)?
I've checked thru this thread (& my eyes now hurt) but could see no mention of the M400/

In common with all the Soundbridge Remote Control applications, it will not operate correctly with the M400's LCD display unit for the reason explained in this thread.

Hi guys, I don't know if I've done something crazy, but all of a sudden there are no artists showing up in my artists folder.... they were there before. Is there some sort of sync/reset I can do to get them back... actually while I'm at it, some artists don't show up at all even though they are sitting happily in iTunes.
ANy help appreciated,

Chris...I have used SoundBridge M1001 for sometime, but just found RokuRemote for the iPhone.

Couple things I can do with the Roku rmote that I cannot figure out on this app...

- How can I load an entire album or artist?

- How can I add an add'l album to the queue?

The app works fine on iOS 5.1 for both the iPad and iPod touch. The icons in landscape mode appear much clearer.

Just wanted to post a big thank you to the developer for this app!!

You've really revitalized the usability of my dusty little M1000! :D

Just wish there was a way to add the browsed Internet Radio stations to your favorites. And some sound level presets would be nice too.
