Suggestion (Video Included) [#11981]

Post by daodb »

Okay, I have a little suggestion. I included a video that basically says it all, but here is what I think should be improved:

When shuffle is on and you hit the back button, I believe the track should go back to the previously played song.

Also, sometimes the tracks get laggy when skipping songs. I have experienced up to a 2 second wait time, and sometimes the tracks skip and don't display the new song that is currently playing, and it all gets frozen up. I could not replicate this on the video.

And sorry for the video quality. I should have uploaded straight from the phone, but I sent it over text message. It should still be clear what I mean, though.

Thank you!

Re. performance of the Now Playing list: we're planning on improving that for version 1.0.5.

Thanks.

Awesome, seems you knew what I was trying to explain.

I just tested the shuffling going to a different track instead of the previous track, and it also occurs when in-app, not only in the widget.

Thanks :)

I can't replicate this in-app?!

Can you generate a video of that?

Thanks.

I couldn't even replicate it in the widget anymore like in the video posted above!! Was this fixed in the recent update?

Maybe it is too much to ask, but what is sometimes important to me when going to the previous track is what follows. It seems like in the old app I used (WinAMP), it was on a strict playlist. For instance, say I was flipping through the tracks relatively quickly, and accidentally skipped Led Zeppelin - "Black Dog" and the current song playing is The Beatles - "Ticket to Ride". Of course, I want to not skip the Led Zep and go back, but I would also love to hear The Beatles right after that. I hope you understand what I am trying to say.

The lag is still occurring when skipping through the songs, but you said that will be fixed in upcoming updates, so I will patiently wait. :D

Loving the app, and thanks for the support!

P.s. now that I think about it while on this post, another thing WinAMP did that I miss is having the whole lock screen covered with the album art. I am very detailed when it comes to my music collection, so I loved this

Here is an example Image

Edit: Another thing I noticed is that even when playback is stopped, the Last.FM Scrobbling App still appears to be running on the stopped track. This is on the official Last.FM App.
