Thanks for the updates!

I’m glad to see recent investments in this terrific app for JRiver Media Center users (THE most powerful media manager and player ever).

However, there is a glaring shortcoming with the app that really should be addressed. When playing music in the app and you tap the small cover art button in the lower left, the cover art expands to full screen, which is great. But when the song changes, the cover art doesn’t change to match the currently playing tune. I like to keep my iPad open so people I’m entertaining can see what’s now playing. The PC program keeps up with song changes. Please make the app do the same!

Love app but…

I have a problem since I updated my JRiver app from JRiver 27 to the new version 31. I have imported new media (mostly music) to my new version. But JRemote still only reads from my JRiver 27 libraries. So I have still been importing the music separately to JR27. Previous updates from earlier JR versions have never been a problem. I never had this issue when I upgraded to JR 27 from JR26.

Great app IMO

Having spent a good amount of time using JRiver, Audirvana, and Roon (among others), I ultimately decided to stick with JRiver. (As an aside, they all sound the same to me - which is to say great - but I know there is ongoing debate about this). Sure maybe the UI is not as polished a Roon, or as lightweight and familiar as Audirvana, but you can do so much more! And as for JRemote, I really don’t understand all the criticism. The app has always worked great for me and does everything that it claims to do, and does it well. It’s quick and sleek. Not nearly as steep of a learning curve as the desktop application. I recommend JRemote. Give it a try.
