Thanks for your hard work on this app. I bought the app just to support its development and to check out the beta. I'm not sure if it is just me but I am finding that the app works great for a while then is not able to find any Volumio devices on my network (2 or 3, depending on what I'm tinkering with).

The fix is to clear data and restart the app and it works perfectly every time. I think maybe the saved settings and devices are not valid anymore? My router assigns a new IP address to every device after reboot. Maybe after 3 to 5 seconds of searching the app can clear its cache for found devices and start fresh?

Volumio Android App BETA Testing Programme

Postby EddieA » Mon May 21 2018 16:01

Device: Samsung SM-T377A (Galaxy Tab E)
Android Version: 6.0.1
App version: 2.632

Quick feedback on the UI after using the app for a few minutes:

From the main "Playing" screen, you can swipe right or left to get to the "Music" and "Queue" screens, but you cannot swipe back to "Playing".

The Back button has no effect. You can only exit the app via the Home.

Cheers.

@Rees sorry about the late reply, we've just released a new version that should fix the problem you described. Just a bug :D

@EddleA I'm looking into that, will keep you updated!

I really love the controls in the lock screen.

A little issue: in the Queue view the icons 'random play' and 'repeat' don't works well.

Device: Huawei P9 lite
Android Version: 7
App version: 2.645

Test with Samsung S6edge and Android 7.0 on RPi3 / Hifiberry Amp+ and Volumio V2.348:
the App is working nice together with the Volumio device, but after a while the web page gets lost on the smartphone:
"net: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT"
When I'm closing all Apps and restart the Volumio App, it's working fine until the error appears again.
With kind regards

Phone : Honor 7 / Android 6.0
Tablet : Huawei Mediapad M2 / Android 5.1.1
Device : Odroid C2
Volumio : pure 2.344

Comments :
1. No exit with back button
2. Swipe left / right from play screen ok, but no swipe back ... ah, it works, but you need to swipe from "empty" part of the screen ...
3. How to get beta updates ? After first install from market
4. How to check app version ?
5. How to reset connection properties ?
6. Phone : In landscape mode play screen have scroll bar on right, .... the screen controls need to be smaller, and they can fit on a screen... Tablet OK.
8. Phone : Opened volume controlls top is missing ( vol. up and volume by number) ... Tablet OK.

9. But ... it is very usable volumio controller, stable, nice, shiny ... I forget the web version, after installation of app.

ThanX for development ...

Hey I just wanted to post here again to give some feedback about the current beta of the Volumio app (not sure how to check version so as of June 16th).

I have 2 devices that work flawlessly and the app consistently picks up my 3 Volumio players running on an RPI 2 and two RPI 3's. I haven't had any issues at all to report in quite some time of daily use. The devices are a Samsung Tab S3 running stock Android 7.1 and an LG G4 phone running stock Android 6.0.

The device I am having trouble on is almost certainly due to the dated system web browser which is running Cyanogenmod 11 which is Android 4.4. The issue is likely with compatibility of Volumio's web interface as the same issue occurs on the stock web browser as well. I can run it just fine using Chrome on the same tablet.

All screens work except now playing which is missing the ability to scroll up or down in portrait orientation. It works fine in landscape.
Screenshots attached showing both orientations.

We had a similar report. This is because we removed the compatibility browser: it allowed old devices to work perfectly, but made the browsing quite slow for everyone else.
The solution is to install chromium beta.
Let us know

Ok great I thought that might be the case as my tablet is quite old. I was able to use Chrome as you noted and the option to "Add to Home Screen" makes it easy to open up without typing the IP address. As a side note there is a good free App called Port Authority that can scan and list all of the Volumio devices on the network.

Thanks for the quick reply and the awesome App ,and Volumio itself of course!
