**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.

This COULD be Awesome if a Little Effort Was Put In...

I bought my Synology NAS on the promise of having all my music accessible from an app that gave, via thumbnail mode, the feel of a jukebox. When it works it’s great, but there are several flaws that can render the player unusable. The worst offender is the artwork caching in thumbnail mode, when fully cached DS Audio looks superb, with smoothly flowing artwork, but if you switch networks ie, take the iPad to work / hotel etc the app promptly wipes all the artwork leaving plain green tiles for every artist. You then have to go through the trouble of scrolling, page by page slowly through all the collection until the app re-downloads all the artwork. I have around 30,000 songs in my music collection, so it’s an hour or two of a job to sort this, only to go home and have to do it all again. Plus sometimes connectivity just doesn’t happen, ‘not accessible’ type errors come up even when playing on the same lan as the server. PLEASE Synology; add a way or permanently caching artwork, perhaps with a method of syncing changes or a refresh button, I have submitted requests with no response and app updates are few and far between. If you could fix these issues you’d never have to update it again and I could spend quality time listening to music rather than trying to fix the app.

A must have for Synology users but with flaws!

It’s my go to music app and one of the reasons I use Synology.
while I appreciate the work put into this, I Synology give it more love, fix glitches and update it with:

1. Non case-sensitive smart search that can combine multiple factors like genre and year.

2. More view/ listing options (thumbnails, list, folder, etc). I know it’s implemented but not everywhere throw out the app.

3. Scrolling track info. for long tracks.

4. Display more meta data. Current view is too outdated, basic with very few info.

5. Lyrics sync (scrolling lyrics).

6. Themes or simply change the background with the album art or a blurred version of it.

so this and I’m sure it will add more value to Synology devices and us, die-hard Synology fans, and the app rating will go to 5/5.

Can’t wait for DSM 7, hoping it will bring more love to the Audio Station. Just hoping, and praying.

A few changes could make it excellent

It’s great that I can rate my tracks with stars but I can’t use this rating to do anything. Change it so I can filter by rating and also make it so I can see the rating in the thumbnails please. To make this a useful app I should be able to use multiple filters to sort my library. So I want to be able to filter by genre and rating at the same time, as a minimum requirement. Thanks. It’s quite a nice app just not that practical yet.
