Reviews and Comments about SqueezeCommander:

Review by Clinton Stark from StarkSilverCreek (US):

[...]
Now, I can control the entire system from the palm of my hand using trusty Droid. And the software is extremely well executed, supporting swiping of screens, pop up menus, large format album art (for me, essential). It’s fast, allowing me to scroll through hundreds of artists on the server upstairs with the flick of a finger.

It’s the ultimate remote control.

Met behulp van deze applicatie gebruik je de Android telefoon (in mijn geval een HTC Magic met de standaard Vodafone 1.6 firmware) als grafische remote voor het bedienen van de server. En dat werkt zonder enig voorbehoud fantastisch goed!

Kortom: Warm aanbevolen voor iedereen met een Android telefoon én een Logitech Squeezebox.

Some comments from Android Market:

“I really cannot praise this enough. Very slick and intuitive UI. Access to your SB apps. Stable. Got a Squeezebox? Buy this now.” – Anton

“This is better than I expected, simple to connect and straight into my Napster account on my Nexus 1. This is a must for SB owners.” – Martin

“Wow. I’m particularly impressed by the responsiveness which means it’s useable in practice. Worth every penny.” – Mark Wheadon

If you like my work, buy me a beer. (Suggested: 3€ for a beer, or more for more beer ;-) )

    Hi Mark,

    I’ve already answered your last comment:

    Furthermore:
    One possible solution may be to open the SBS port (9000) to the internet. (Don’t forget the password protection!)
    In this case, you could add the server as “Additional Server” within SqueezeCommander.
    Your phone would be able to connect to your server while it is still connected to 3G (the startup time is much faster than on WLAN).

    PS: I’m searching for a X10 beta tester anyway, so please drop me a line if you are interested in testing the upcoming version.

    Hi Christian,

    I hope that you’re not planning to discontinue the Squeeze Commander now that Logitech has made an Android controller themselves. Squeeze Commander is a much much better application in terms of speed, reliability and usability and it would be a shame if it was discontinued.

    There are a few things that I’d like to request, things available in Logitechs version that I’m sure you can implement better in the Squeeze Commander.

    1. When browsing artists/folders/songs or what have you, an alphabet on the right hand of the screen, that scrolled directly to the artists/songs/folders beginning with the letter pushed, would make browsing much easier for us with larger music libraries.

    2. The ability to save playlists. Once I’ve created a nice list of songs it always annoys me that I can’t save it for later.

    3. When browsing, the ability to have the Squeeze Commander remember where I was the last time I was browsing would also be very useful.

    If you need a beta tester I’d be happy to help out (I’m using a Galaxy Tab and an HTC Legend to control mu squeeze server).

    Thanks!

    Kristian,

    Right now, I’m not planning to discontinue SqueezeCommander, because I still think that I can create a better App than Logitech. :-)

    BTW: All of your enhancement requests will be included in the next version (0.9.6).

    If you want to test the Beta, please drop me a line at

    Love the update, but automatic phone volume control stopped working! I have a T-Mobile G2 on 2.2… HELP! That is a disaster for me – loved the feature before

  5. Kbn says:

    Love the new version! “Superior craftsmanship”. More options, more intuitive, and better looking. Cheers!

    Jonathan,

    I’m not aware of any problems with the auto volume control, but I’ll check this out.
    I’ve created a ticket for that:
