Changing stations in playlist problem.
When I have a list of radio stations in a playlist and I change the station, the channel does change but the now playing info does not change. The artwork remains the original station.
Thanks, Pippin, for providing such a nice remote control app! It is a major part of the Squeezebox enjoyment. I could not enjoy the SB system without it.
Update: fixed it by downloading 7.2 nightly build.

Faster scrolling up/down through artists, albums, songs,... meens a lot to me. I'm very demanding user and scrolling is a part of functionality.
That meens Ipod Touch 3rd generation instead of 2nd generation and voila.
BTW, your iPeng for Iphone/Ipad is IMPRESSIVE application!
Best regards from Slovenia!

Can't wait to try ipad dedicated version. Since I adore future oriented user friendly machines this will be nice experience for me.
But already Ipod/Iphone version is out of this world compared with all other stuff that i had tried. Momentarily I testing Olive 4HD music server and I can tell you that this is real "pain in the ass" regarding functionality. Yes it has Iphone/Ipod Touch support but its software&hardware integration sucks. When spoiled Squeezebox/Transporter user see that "half-way product" he realize how good ipeng is. It is responsive, user friendly, with good graphics and cool features... and then (if not before) he start to appreciate that pinnacle.
Also I can't wait to try new Squeezepad for ipad. For Ipod/Iphone I preffers ipeng, but new version for ipad looks very promising.
Pippin thank you and keep on developing that fancy app of yours that spoils our souls!

Multiple problems with iPeng
I downloaded the iPeng app for my iPod touch. I was hopeful about it, but there seem to be a number of major problems:
1) the developer's web site is down - not sure why but this is disappoint for a $10 app. It occurred to me to look here for support, glad I did...
2) there seem to be significant problems with the Rhapsody integration:
a) when I try to play a Rhapsody album, the only option it gives me is to "play the album as shuffled". When I click on this, it plays the album in the album order, not shuffled
b) Once a Rhapsody album is playing, it appears to be impossible to add other Rhapsody songs or albums to the current play list
c) When a Rhapsody album is playing and I try to play one of the pre-configured Rhapsody play lists, they don't play at all. Instead the album I was already listening to continues to play.
3) there are some minor problems with the Slacker intgeration
a) it does not appear to be the case that you can "heart" or "thumbs down" Slacker songs even though one can with the web user interface.
iPeng is a promising app - but nearly all of my listening is on Rhapsody and Slacker. Thus, these problems render the app not very useful to me. And it is frustrating that there is no obvious support web site. Free is free, but if I'm paying 10x as much as the average app store app, I expect commercial quality software that works as advertised. I am curious if any of these things will be fixed...thanks.

How long have you been using Ipeng?
I think you are being too quick to pass judgement. Ipeng is an awesome app and is supported by Pippin (the developer) very conscienteously. I use Ipeng for Rhapsody and for Slacker and have found zero problems adding and removing from playlists etc. Perhaps if you voice your concerns here on this thread which is dedicated to Ipeng, then you will find that Ipeng is worth 10X$10 or more. Good luck.

Also re documentation
I would also point out that the UI for iPeng is actually quite difficult to understand if you haven't used it before. I know there are some tutorials in the program, but I would like actual documentation. Again, given that the web site is down there appears to be no way to get this.
