    SqueezeBox control app for Palm webOS devices

    Squeeze Control is available now in the App Catalog:
    http://developer.palm.com/webChannel...rygoat.sqzctrl

    Developer homepage:
    http://www.angrygoatapps.com

    - Control your SqueezeBox players from your webOS device.
    - Search for music from anywhere in the app - just start typing.
    - Replicates almost all of the functionality of a SqueezeBox Controller, including the plugin apps.

    Requirements
    - A device using webOS version 1.4 or higher
    - SqueezeBox players using a SqueezeBox Server as their music source. Does
    NOT work with MySqueezebox.com (it might work with the SqueezeBox Touch as the server - not tested)
    - SqueezeBox Server version 7.4 or better. (It should work with 7.0 or higher, but you might lose some functionality and/or icons)

    Cool!
    Can you give a few more details about how the UI works, I think I did not understand all of the items on the screen in the lists.

    I'm guessing the part you don't understand are the 'plus' buttons and the down arrow buttons.
    The plus buttons adds the item to the playlist.

    The down arrows opens a drawer under the item to show other options for the item. Basically the same as pressing the plus key on a SB Controller.

    The 'plus' buttons with a little down arrow combines the two functions. A tap adds to the playlist. Tap and hold opens the drawer.

    The down arrow only shows in the current playlist screen. Which and if the plus button shows up is determined by the menu data that I get from the server. The two versions of the plus button shows up when there's an Add action associated with the item. The combo plus/arrow button shows when the item has a More action.

    Pippin, I've got a question for you. How did you get ipeng working with mysqueezebox.com? I know the site supports the same communication mechanisms (json-rpc, cometd) as a stand alone server, but what's the login procedure?

    I haven't really looked into it yet and it might be obvious when I do, but heck it doesn't hurt to ask, right?

    thanks.

    So you are processing the menus?
    Cool.
    Can you also play items? Or just add?

    Yes, I'm processing the menus and it is a pain. They really need to have some consistency in the menu data.

    Tapping anywhere else on a playable item plays it.

    Oh yes, how well I know that...
    Actually the biggest pain is that they have the habit of changing it with every release.

    Why don't you also support MySB?
    Write me a mail on coolio att penguinlovesmusic dott com if you want to talk about that.

    Yes, I noticed they tend to change stuff. Even from 7.4.2 to 7.5, I had to make a change to account for some minor difference. Let's hope that they're least moving towards a more consistent and logical layout.

    The only test I did with MySB was to just point my app to it to see if worked, it didn't. I haven't really looked at what I'm getting back from MySB.

    Writing the app pretty much zapped a month of my life, and I'm a little burned out with it. I'll definitely shoot you an email when I start to really look into it.
