**You must own a Synology NAS to run this app, and be running the Audio Station 6.5.0 package to get the complete set of features**
DS audio allows you to stream music stored on your DiskStation with an iPhone/iPad wherever an Internet connection is available. Better yet, with the offline mode you can listen to songs stored in the device’s local memory for when no network connection is available. You can browse music by albums, artists, folders or genres, create your own playlists or share them with your friends, and even rate your music! And if you have dedicated stereo speakers at home, DS audio can also become a remote control to stream music to them.

7. Minor bug fixes
Listen, it’s a great app. I use it to listen to music all the time and have little problems. But, lately, a REALLY big bug has surfaced and has not been fixed. Clicking the “play next to current” button, which conveniently allows the track to play after the one you’re currently listening to, makes the whole app crash. Just that button, but it’s a very important button. If you click on it, regardless of the song, or situation, your app will go down. Please fix it, and you will be granted five stars.
Use it every day
If Synology invested time and resources to develop DS Audio, their NAS would be a must-have for music lovers. I’ve been using the app every day and it already is extremely usable. Well, until few days ago. Now the app doesn’t allow changing the “player” setting and actually freezes when opening that setting, at least on iPad - this makes it unusable to me.
I use the app as a control point for my home hifi when at home, and to listen via headphones when out. Without being able to switch the player setting from USB Speakers to headphones and vice versatility, the app is useless for me. Everything used to work for many years until now.
DS Audio has so much promise.
Could be better.
I have been using this a lot more since Pandora is so ad crazy. Lately, it loses its place if stopped for more than a couple of minutes. And it doesn’t do a very good job of grouping songs into albums. Sometimes all but a couple are in one album and one or two are in another album with same photo and names. Shuffle and default favorites stop playing and I have to advance the song a few seconds to start it again.
