A few questions regarding the Android app functionality
I have been trying the android Astiga app for a few days. It is really good, however, there are a few things I'd liked answered, if possible:
- Library in the app seems to be storage browser as opposed to the library in the web interface, which is basically, well, my music library. It is a bit confusing. Is it supposed to be like that?
- Under Settings > Accounts, I can add new accounts, does this mean multiple Astiga accounts? What is this used for?
- If I delete some files/folders on my cloud, then resync my cloud to Astiga, would it take as long as the initial scan?
- Is there a way to cache the library structure to the app? Currently, the only issue I have is that while browsing albums or artists or anything in the app, it only shows a limited number of items and when I want to scroll down, it has to load the next batch from the server, showing "please wait" at the bottom. If I browse albums alphabetically, It would take me quite a while to get to the letter "Z" albums, for example. Is it something I have to do or the app doesn't yet have this feature, which I think is a must?
Astiga is almost perfect for what I want in a cloud player. I'm currently using 3 other apps for this purpose, only one can be said to be fully functional, but it gets updated like twice a year now and has multiple shortcomings. Astiga, on the other hand, has everything I want in a cloud streaming app. The web interface is gorgeous and functions exceptionally well (two thumbs up for playing/adding random selection). The android app has this constant loading thing, otherwise it'd be perfect.
