It's just got much worse....
I don't know what's going on with these recent updates but older versions were more reliable! Problems selecting music and adding to the playlist - the song/s refuse to play. Delete a selected track from now playing and the app closes....volume control works in the Amp remote, but the volume slider in the now playing screen has no effect. It's such a bad advert for what is a very good premium product - come on Arcam....
My Arcam hardware is less than a year old and I am forced to use this app which has had glitches since it first came out. Some are listed in other reviews, some aren't... But Arcam staff and testers know what they are.
Listening to Qobuz today forced me to write a review. Come on guys, the future lies in the apps that support the hardware.
Upgraded to 3 stars. Performance has improved in some areas (on my 2018 iPad Pro). Search function slightly improved. Still sometimes takes a loooong time to find/recognise my CDS 50 on home network. No gapless playback. Selecting a different track on an album is still a bit hit-and-miss. I use it with my Qobuz subscription.

Poor user experience
I’ve been using MusicLife with my Arcam kit on and off for 6 months now to stream Tidal to my CDS50 and am very disappointed by the frequent glitches and problems I’ve had with this. It almost always freezes on my iPad and often just crashes out when asked to search. Why you can’t just replicate the sort of user experience and interface you get on the Tidal app or iTunes escapes me. I’m having to stream Tidal over AirPlay and accept the limitations on sound quality that imposes to avoid using MusicLife - not really what I signed up for ! I have contacted support and whilst they are perfectly nice people to communicate with, they can’t fix this ...... the app just needs a complete overhaul.
