    Post [ANNOUNCE] SqueezeCommander 0.9 for Android

    Today, I'm happy to present you the first release of SqueezeCommander!

    SqueezeCommander is a new Android Remote Control app for your SqueezeBoxes.
    I've tried all available SqueezeBox apps on the Android market, but I was not really happy with them.

    So, I've finally decided to write my own! :-)

    SqueezeCommander is now available on Android Market.

    Furthermore, it is also available on SlideME.org: http://slideme.org/application/squeeze-commander

    For more details and screenshots, please take a look at the announcement: http://www.squeezecommander.com

    I hope you'll like it. Have a lot of fun!


    Key Features:
    * Automatical Server Discovery
    * Support for password protected SqueezeBoxServers
    * Now Playing screen with Artwork
    * Fast incremental library browse
    * Fast library search
    * Music download to SD card
    * Internet radio browse
    * Multi-Player and Multi-Server support (inspired by iPeng :-) )
    * MySqueezeBox.com support
    * Active development


    === Automatical Server Discovery ===

    When you start SqueezeCommander it searches for SqueezeBoxServers in your local network and automatically establishes a connection to the first available server.

    If the auto-discovery fails, you can of course also enter a server manually.


    === Support for password protected SqueezeBoxServers ===

    SqueezeCommander supports password protected SqueezeBoxServers to improve security.


    === Now Playing screen with Artwork ===

    If you are connected to a Server and a Player, you will be redirected to the Now Playing screen. This screen is the main view of SqueezeCommander. It shows informations about the current song and the artwork if available.


    === Fast incremental library browse ===

    SqueezeCommander is created with large music libraries in mind. It uses a fast incremental library search, that should not slow down or block the User Interface while browsing your library.

    Furthermore, all library lists show a “FastScroll” area on the right to scroll very fast through long lists (instead of “flinging” the screen many, many times).


    === Fast library search ===

    You can search your library by Artist, by Album, by Track and so on. For large Libraries, that would be hard work for your little mobile, therefore SqueezeCommander delegates this task to the SqueezeBoxServer for a pretty fast library search.


    === Music download to SD card ===

    Never leave your home without music!

    You can now select single tracks, whole albums or even whole artists and download them to your mobile’s SD card. After the download, they’ll show up in your favorite Android music player app.


    === Internet radio browse ===

    You can browse through all radio stations around the world picked by the SqueezBox staff.

    Of course, you can also enter a custom Radio URL.


    === Multi-Player and Multi-Server support ===

    SqueezCommander supports multiple player and multiple servers.

    The servers can be arranged in Sync Groups to play the same songs. You can switch a player (or a complete Sync Group) to another server or to MySqueezeBox.com.


    === MySqueezeBox.com support ===

    You can switch your players to MySqueezeBox.com and control them independently from your local SqueezeBoxServer. So you don’t need to have your Server powered up 24/7 but you can still listen to your favourite Internet Radio.


    === Active development ===

    This is a very active project, so if you’ve found a bug or want to make a request for enhancement, please open a ticket in my Bug Tracker.

    I’m eager to squeeze existing bugs and implement new features, so please take the chance and open a ticket. :-)

    Great work, I've been waiting for something like this for a while. I'll give it a go and report back.

    I've had a brief play around with this now, first impressions are that it is great. Does all the basics very well and is well suited to controlling multiple players. I look forward to seeing how the app develops in future - if you need a beta tester I'd be happy to help out.

    Good to hear that you like it!

    I would be happy to have you as a beta tester!
    Please sign up at my tracker http://sqcmdr.flattermann.net/trac and send me a short mail to sqcmdr (AT) flattermann (DOT) net.

    If you have any ideas for new features or you've found a bug, please open a ticket in the tracker, so that I cannot forget your request anymore. ;-)

    The app seems to be pretty stable (at least, I only got a single CrashReport until now, see http://sqcmdr.flattermann.net/trac/ticket/5).
    It was my biggest concern that the app may not be 100% stable on some devices, because I did not have a large beta test with different Android models.

    After fixing this (rare) bug, I'll spend my time on new features.
    I've already added some ideas to the tracker: http://sqcmdr.flattermann.net/trac/report/1.
    Feel free to comment the tickets...

    Best regards,
    Christian

    I'm happy to present you SqueezeCommander 0.9.1.

    It is now available in Android Market.

    This is a bug fix release.

    Issues fixed:
    * SqCmdr may crash with OutOfMemory when loading Artwork under certain circumstances (See #5)
    * Android 1.6 only: SqCmdr will crash when changing the Music Source of a player (See #10)
    * SqCmdr uses the wrong cache directory on SD card (See #12)
    * You may (optionally) add your email to CrashReports (See #11)

    You may see details of these issues in the Bug Tracker, http://sqcmdr.flattermann.net/trac.

    Have a lot of fun!

    Searching for Beta testers

    I'm currently searching for beta testers with the following configuration:

    * T-Mobile G1 with Android 1.5
    * T-Mobile G1 with Android 1.6
    * Any other device with Android 1.6

    If you have such a device and are interested in beta testing, please contact me at:
    sqcmdr (AT) flattermann (DOT) net

    Please tell me your Phone Model and Android Version in the mail.

    It would be helpful (but not essential) if you have used the Android Debugger (ADB) before.

    What you should do as beta tester:
    Test new SqueezeCommander features / releases and tell me any bugs that you may encounter during the test.

    Hello, superkonge!

    Ok, I'll take a look at slideme.org and see what I can do!

    Until then, you can become a SqueezeCommander beta tester, if you like.
