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.

Better than Songbook
A vast improvement on songbook but still a long way to go. Looks nice and navigates well from locally stored music but artwork lags when searching through NAS drive (probably the speed of my NAS rather than the app). Streams to other upnp devices (SONOS) but not at the same time, which is a shame as this could offer simple multiroom ability across other platforms. Music stops every now and then and sometimes requires constant restarting. This was always the major issue with songbook, that the app had to be open and the screen on for the music to play. MusicLife resolves that and allows you to turn the screen off or use other apps, but it sometimes stops or gets lost in the queue. Also does not read iTunes playlists stored on a NAS drive. Other than that, this app does increase the usability of my AVR400. Shame it can't read apple lossless files though.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
