Really nice app. Could use some tuning

First off, I really like this app and recommend it highly. My library is around 50K songs and it handles it well. Nice interface. Buffers nicely for road trips. Would like to see three things fixed and one new feature. In ID3 tag browsing, Please fix the number of albums listed for each artist as well as the number of songs for each album. Also, when browsing artists by letter, the application hangs. Please add the ability to sort by album artist. Nice work!

The Essential Subsonic App

I originally purchased this app a few years ago and watching it grow to become such a fantastic client for my music has been a wonderful experience. Features are added as consistently as bugs are fixed and with a striving for smoothness and consistency in the interface. Without this app there is a good chance I would have given up on my Subsonic setup before it could have realized its potential. I rarely go out of my way to review an app but when I saw that after all the effort and dedication put in by the developer it only had 3.8 stars I made it a point to profess my appreciation for everything that they’ve done. If you’re looking for an iOS Subsonic client you can end your search here. I look forward to continuing to watch this app grow as I expand my musical horizons.

Best Subsonic (& derivative) Choice

I’ve had the app since 2014. I’ve tried every other Subsonic client and this is still by far the best. I’m on the app daily to facilitate my listening of an 80k+ collection. I’ve made every in-app purchase, both in developer support, as well as to make use of the features the app strives to provide which are well beyond what the Subsonic platform can do. You’ll find the core rock-solid, and any issues in the add-ons rapidly resolved due to a very response and active developer. Your best app for the Subsonic family.
