How syncing, playlists and favourites work
I am having some confusion with Astiga. I use the android app and trying to make use of the web interface.
I would like to use Astiga to play files on the go but also to SYNC files onto my device so I can play them offline. Doing this using playlists doesn't make logical sense. Yes, I can sync an entire playlist, but if I delete an album from a playlist it doesn't get deleted by Astiga. Weird.
Then, I thought I could maybe use 'Favourites' to be the way I sync, but favourites don't show up on the web app, making the whole process incredibly tedious on the device. To favourite all the albums I want takes so many extra clicks. If I could even just select a whole load of albums at once and click to favourite them in a single menu, that would make more sense.
If I could easily favourite every album in a playlist, or at least navigate albums on my device by looking at only the favourites, then this would be a solid method of syncing. But favourites have no real function if I can't see them in the menu or the web app.
As it stands the way Astiga allows me to stream my collection is fantastic, but to sync and rely on carrying and organising my collection on my device? Not so good.
There needs to be a couple of simpler ways to sync and organise my tracks, with a focus on albums. At the moment I am worried how messy this is going to get.
