On iPhone this has never worked

Not sure if it is an apple issue or an emby developer issue, but either way it just will not work; stuttering, lad in loading just all around weak app. You would think with them wanting you to subscribe they would at least offer an app that worked decently. Why is this such a hard thing? I mean, this is your gig, your thing. If you cant get it working smoothly on the iPhone, don’t sell an app that promises and promotes optimism of this actually working.

Great looking App but has issues and is not for pc novices

Pros- App is gorgeous both on iPhone and on home PC. It really is like having your own Netflix etc. It manages to pull images and info with ease and combines it into a lovely user friendly package that I use daily.
Cons - iPhone app struggles at time to stay connected to Chromecast and the app’s ‘remote control’ function regularly fails to connect stopping the using from all forms of program control (skipping, pausing etc). Constant restarts needed over and over again.
Don’t get this app if you your primary usage will be for music as it you will be very dissatisfied. It can’t manage music at all. Grouping, search and almost all features you get from programs like iTunes or any other similar products are missing or do not work. It’s simply bad.
Connecting outside of your local network is very difficult and to date after many help articles, lots of reading and many attempts I have still been unable to get it to work. It’s a shame because it would be great to be able to use it away from home and would encourage me to recommend it to friends and family. I’m quite experienced with building pc’s, setting up home and office networks etc so for the average computer user I would foresee this being a very difficult solution to implement properly.
Devs - Please keep up the improvements as I would love the above issues be resolved before another suitable solution comes along.
Good luck!

Works like a charm

Works smoothly and haven’t had any major issues, the only minor issues I’ve had with it is that when i press the home button it switches servers when all i wanted to do was go home of the current server I’m on. And the other trouble i have is that on occasion the play/pause control of lock screen wont work with Emby and pause/play. There issues which i don’t have a problem living with but it would be nice to see them fixed. But other than that it works very nice
