    iPad Apps for Squeezebox?

    What's everybody using on their iPad to control SB?

    iPeng works pretty well.

    The web interface is barely usable but the icons are tiny and "unsqueezing" results in unpredictable behavior with the iPad interface, which is a shame.

    Anything else out there yet?

    Yes, I am aware of the new version coming, but last I heard, the expected arrival date is "months" away.

    Not sure what you mean by unsqueezing?
    Anyway you could also try the touch interface of the web interface by going to http://[yourserverip]:9000/touch instead. It's more finger friendly. Might be better for the ipad, but still not great I suspect.

    I think that doesn't work, too.
    The problem with most of the skins is the use of frames/divs that scroll plus some automatic scrolling through JavaScript. Plus completely failing automatic resizing.

    Classic skin is usable if you can live with it jumping back to the top of the list every few seconds, I feel only "EN" in really usable.

    Actually the Touch skin is pretty usable on the iPad and the classic skin is crappy.

    That's my opinion.

    Thanks.

    Classic is the only one that works half way for me. Ugly as sin, but the touch interface has the problem with scrolling, resizing, etc., that don't work with the way I use the app.

    What's the "EN" interface?

    > What's the "EN" interface?

    It's the mother of all skins. Basically no markup.

    Touch theme works well for me

    Hi Guys,

    The Touch theme (http://[youripaddress]:9000/touch) is working really well for me with the iPad.

    The only major problem that I had at first was not being able to scroll through my music lists or other lists. I figured out that, since the list is in a frame, you need to use two fingers in parallel to scroll (i.e., side by side) and then it works really well. Incidentally, the two finger scroll method is required to scroll within frames in Safari on iPad on any website.

    Regards,
    Tim
