    I have tried every Squeezebox controller app I could get, but Logitech original one is the best.

    I would like to change some UI aspects and make it a bit faster, but overall it is very good.

    P.S.
    HTC Desire (Android 2.2)

    Android Controller App

    It should, yes. Can you give me some more details about your configuration (device, Android version, SBS version etc.)?

    Is this the "old" Desire, or the HD? What Android version, SBS etc.? What does Settings/Advanced/About report for the connection type?

    Yep, that's something I've seen sometimes, but never been able to reproduce reliably. And yes, I'm using a HTC Desire too... I'm not sure this issue was reported for any other device so far :-(.

    At first, when I saw the announcement, I thought "uh thats a shame for Flatterman and the developer of SqueezeControl. Now they will have a hard time getting a return for their time and effort."

    But now I have tried it on both a HTC Desire and a SE XPmini. And it cannnot compete with SqueezeCommander. IT doesn't run smooth at all, scrolling requires care to do it just right, scrolling stutters on both devices, Sync-handling doesn't benefit from the touch screen at all. But the real showstopper for me is that you cannot connect to your home server across the internet. That is my usecase 95% of the time. I cannot be bothered to turn on wifi just to access my music when at home, and when at work, it is ofcourse not an option.

    But I think it is a good thing that Logitech have released an Android-port of squeezeplay. And I'm sure it will be developed further. Seems kind of the obvious thing to do. Squeezeboxes run some flavour of Linux and Android is another flavour of linux, so it should be a small deal porting it. Obviously it wasn't.

    I think Logitech will sell some devices for having an in-house-supported controller-app. And I think Flatterman will sell some SqueezeCommanders because it is better :-)

    And this inspires some amount of confidence in the future of the productline.

    *I would suggest a tray-icon.
    *Option to keep screen alive/prevent password-unlock.
    *Sync-handling. I know Squeezeplay needs to look sort of the same on all platform, but look at the was it's handled in the 3rd party apps.
    *I like the swiping to move between now playing, playlist etc. But that is a matter of taste.

    Marketing would call this a win-win situation :-)

    An icon in the top status bar? What would you want it to show?

    Thanks. Sounds all familiar...
