Thanks to everyone who has helped out with beta testing so far. I'm just about to release what is hopefully the final beta before the final release is published to the app store.

I'm hoping the first release covers all of the basics and covers them well. Here, as promised, are some screenshots of the app in it's (near) final state.

Key features for 1.0:

* Browse library by artist and album, including access to new music
* Playlist browsing
* Now playing view with standard skip/play/pause controls, volume control and time elapsed/remaining
* Current playlist navigation and editing, including drag to reorder and swipe to delete
* Support for controlling multiple players (one at a time)

Features planned for future releases:

* Multi-device playback (simultaneous)
* Remote services browsing (LastFM etc.)
* Shuffle/Repeat controls (these should have made it into 1.0 but I cut them at the last minute so I can get this out there)
* Interface refinements
* Maybe....CoverFlow.
* Plugin support for ratings
* Library search

I can also reveal that the final price will be £4.99 which should work out at $8 and €6.50. 1.x upgrades (which will contain all of the above future features) will be free.

Looks nice.
Looking forward to see it.
Feels like I have to do some screenshots, too :-)

Best of luck getting it into the app store. Take nothing for granted though, as Apple's 'policy' on what gets in, and when, is not at all clear.

Awesome Job Man

I'll be sure to get this as soon as it's released.

Luke??

When will the Squeemote (iSqueeze´s new name) be released in AppStore?

Luke seems to have disappeared. He hasn't posted since he said the app was submitted to the AppStore about a month ago. That might be an indication that Squeemote might not ever get released. Even if it does, it might be wise to question if it will be supported.

That's an unfair claim to make. It was submitted to the app store but I had some problems getting it submitted. In that time I have been ill and changed jobs and have had little to do but start work on the next version of Squeemote, whilst waiting for it to be released. It is now available on the app store.

Luke,

good to see you finally got it around Apple!

Luke,

I sincerely apologize. You are correct, it was unfair of me to make claims about both you and Squeemote without knowing the facts. I know Apple can be difficult when submitting apps to the AppStore, and we missed you around here. I hope things have settled down for you now.

I really only meant to let the previous poster know there was an alternate to waiting for Squeemote, in iPeng.

In my message I said more than I meant, and it came across harsher than I intended.

Again, please accept my apologies.

Don't worry about it, apology accepted. :)
