If you are like me, music is not only about the tunes, but also about bands and artists.Unfortunately always looking them up and learning about them is (was) a tedious task … open the browser, surf to your favorite search engine, enter your keywords … and if you want to look somewhere else start all over.
Until now! SqueezePad 1.9.0 comes with an integrated browser ready to look up all relevant content about your currently playing song, artist or their album with a simple tap.
You’ve never been faster looking up your music!SqueezePad comes with a wealth of pregenerated links to Wikipedia, Google, YouTube, Last.FM, AllMusic, Facebook and many more. You cannot miss the new browser feature – just use the new button below the playlist button to the right.
When I open it, I’m brought straight to the Wikipedia article of the current playing artist, here the Beatles (click to enlarge):
As Wikipedia often lacks a lot of pictures, why not start a search for more images with just one more tap ?
On the left menu you’ll the links to all other sites, so let’s do a Google Image search *tap*
What about moving pictures from YouTube *tap*
Finally lets sing along – finding the Lyrics for the currently playing song is a breeze as well *tap, tap*
Other improvements in this version: the new picture viewer from Squeezebox-Server 7.7 in the Extras menu is working now.
