In other news the Servify logon GUI has been slightly updated and now supports storing your login information.

UPDATE 2010.03.27

Thanks for the bug reports as usual.
Also big thanks to everyone who gives nice comments and good ratings on the Android Market as well as those who vote in the Pansentient competition!

  1. Hi Johannes!
    Yes, that did the trick. Respot connected on the second attempt. Great! There are still som issues during search and som other minor things. I’ll get back to you on those later for some contructive feedback – with a textdump from the servify java window, if that helps.

    Great job! Looking forward to more development

    Brief backslaps:
    * Quick respons from buttons and volume slidebar
    * Easy setup (at least for a person not being a total technophob)

  2. Thanks for your comments!

    A log from servify is definitely useful for me to debug issues, so that would help alot!

    I tried to simplify the setup even more with “zeroconf / bonjour”, unfortunately there’s a blocker bug in the Android platform that prevents multicast from working properly.

    Feedback and ideas are always appreciated :)

  3. Hi Johannes!

    I’ve sent you some comments on my experience on mail, but I’d thought I’d leave some comments for the sake of the forum.

    Some of the bugs I’ve experienced:
    * Music skips to next track when receiving mail on the android
    * Music skips after playing 5 – 10 seconds of a track
    * Respot looses contact with servify. SOmetimes both programs has to be restarted.

    Some wishes:
    * Being able to search out artists and albums, not only single tracks – abit like spotify you know.
    * Being able to slide the timebar to “wind” og “rewind” in a song.

    Thanx!

  4. Guess I’ll reply here too 😉

    * Music skips to next track when receiving mail on the android
    a: Probably a fluke that they happened simultaneously (to change song either something on the server must go wrong, or a specific command must be sent from ReSpot).

    * Music skips after playing 5 – 10 seconds of a track
    a: Yep, a truly annoying bug – seems to be related to a threading issue, quite hard to track down unfortunately, will keep working on it.

    * Respot looses contact with servify. SOmetimes both programs has to be restarted.
    a: Another nuisance indeed. This is unfortunately most likely due to bugs in the android platform – have tried several work arounds with varying levels of success. (http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=2059)

    * Being able to search out artists and albums, not only single tracks – abit like spotify you know.
    a: It should be searching tracks/albums/artists. I’ve just released a new version of ReSpot in which you may now browse for artist/albums from the search result!

    * Being able to slide the timebar to “wind” og “rewind” in a song.
    a: Yeah – i had that idea when doing the progress bar – however it’s not trivial to implement the ‘seek’ functionality it turned out. But there will be a seek function implemented at some point I’m sure… =)

    Thanks for your feedback =)
