Car play works! But has issues

Very glad that car play finally works. However it seems to get stuck at the end of every track, I have to manually go to the next track.

More importantly, all of my playlists are empty when using car play, I have to start the playlists on my phone because that’s the only place they will show up

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.

Updated review: disappointing

Update: it’s been disappointing as of late. It was crashing consistently during searches. So I uninstalled and reinstalled. Now it crashes upon launching. I receive a complex error message. I have forwarded it to the developer. I am hoping he comes through as he has in the past.
Unfortunately, until then, I can not recommend anymore.

Flawless. Easy setup. Sound is on par. The best part is when you ask a question, the developer gets back to you quickly. That's rare. Highly recommended.

Developer Response ,

If you can send me any crash reports, that would really help. I can't find anything related to searching in my inbox.
