SqueezePad 1.2.1 released

Allgemein, News Comments Off on SqueezePad 1.2.1 released

Apple seems to have had a good reviewing night. SqueezePad 1.2.1 is available now on the App-Store.

This is a minor bugfix/enhancement release with the following stuff:

  • navigating back now also possible with tap on menu-title (also added icon). swiping right of course still works as a hidden feature for everyone reading the full App-Description
  • support for authenticated Squeezebox-Servers (see new options on settings-screen)
  • new settings option: prevent sleep while playing
  • playlist menu: tapping a playlist entry now jumps to this playlist entry
  • fixed bugs in Spotify + Napster menus (tapping a track didn’t start to play)
  • fixed a bug with Spotify artwork on the ‘Now Playing’ part
  • default port 9000 automatically added on settings-screen, when no other port is given
  • alarm volume menu now working
  • better rendering of network errors on the ‘server disconnected screen’
  • don’t crash on invalid Spicefly Sugarcube settings menu
  • settings screen: solved issues with (unsupported) portrait mode
  • dismissing the keyboard on the search-screen now doesn’t search with empty string

Hope you enjoy it !!
For now I need a week of Not-Programming-On-SqueezePad-In-The-Night (but support of course still is there) – then I’ll start with the next big feature ? What will it be ?

Lets see … … currently looks like you get a great facility for playlist management … I’ll leave the pool open for this very last week !

SqueezePad 1.2.0 released

Allgemein, News Comments Off on SqueezePad 1.2.0 released

Heja – Apple finally verified the first update to version 1.2.0 which should turn up on your iPads within the next 24 hours.

This update gives you the following improvements:

  • long touch a menu-item brings up the context menu (if available) – this allows you for instance to put songs/albums to the end of the current playlist, but also do all the other nice stuff thats hidden behind the context menus
  • long touch the big album art on the right also brings up the context menu for the current playlist item
  • album and artistlist now have an index for faster navigation
  • you can see the current playlist for the current player under ‘my music’ (it’s the playlist menu as known from the Squeezebox-Touch). There you can also clear and safe the current playlist.

The next version 1.2.1 will be a bugfix/minor enhancement release to be submitted to Apple on 1st of August (add 10 days until Apple reviewed it):

  • Play on Spotify menus will work (with high probability this also solves the same problem with Napster menus)
  • support for authenticated servers
  • you’ll have a setting option to prevent your iPad to sleep when you watch a playing device
  • alarm volume can be changed
  • no problems with portrait mode and the settings screen anymore
  • a short tap on the menu title will go one menu up (if you don’t like the swipes)
  • selecting an item in the playlist will jump to this item (forgot that on the last release, sorry)

Don’t forget to vote for the next wanted feature – in about two weeks I’ll be starting development on the next bigger feature:
