In other news the "playlist" issues seem to persist. Servify will throw TimeoutException's when trying to list playlists.
In the browser view (in ReSpot) you may try this: "meny->list". But dont hammer too quickly. Once executed either the playlists should surface or you can view the logwindow under the Connect tab - there any errors will be reported.
New ReSpot and Servify release!
x) new UI! Work In Progress - please report issues
x) Fixed FC issue(s)
x) MoveToNext - moves track to be played next in play queue
As usual a big thanks to everyone reporting bugs and asking for (specific) improvements / features!
A special thanks to 'coolof' for the mockup which I've used for this design.
Been implementing the new UI that 'coolof' kindly mocked. However to make it look good on various devices (different resolutions) quite a bit of work remains.
I'll release a fix later today that should address the (currently) most common force close issues.
Hopefully I can get the updated UI released sometime next week.. Stay tuned.
Let me know what you think about it in the comments!
Update of ReSpot due to feature request...
(suggest new features by adding a comment on the posts on this blog!)
x) trigger artist/album browse from search view
Had totally overlooked adding these two options from the Search view.
If a artist/album browse is triggered from the Search view - the results of the browse will be displayed in the Browse view!
This may or may not change in the future... actually the search view will most likely be removed in a future update and a proper search manager implemented (ie: the android search will 'pop up' in the browse tab).
Small update to ReSpot and Servify. Addresses stability issues and improves logging in Servify significantly.
x) better logging! (servify)
x) FC issue
A few new features for the next release (not yet available on the market)
On incoming calls - ReSpot will mute the stereo playback.
I've chosen "mute" for now - at some point later on it'll probably change to "pause".
Once the call is done - music is unmuted.
Also revamped the SearchUI. I should use the standard SearchManager as provided by Android, but I'm more interested in adding new features. And the 'Search Button' brings you to the Search tab (if your device has a search button that is).
Time for another release, 2010.02.06. Hopefully bug free 😉
Please note that Servify upgrade is required!
+ improved volume slider
+ shuffle function (it's hidden... playbackview->menu->shuffle)
+ new buttons (thanks to vaineh @ android forums)
+ a few Force Close issues ironed out (and no new ones introduced! 😛 )
The volume slider will indicate the wrong volume when first starting ReSpot. It's something i'll patch real soon. Need to do a bit of refactoring for that though.
