For those that use LMS, what control app do you use?

    So, I have been using Daphile recently (again - it is fun to go through all the new Beta versions as they keep improving) which uses LMS, I have been trying 3 different Android apps for control - Orange Squeeze, Squeezer, and Squeeze Cntrl. The last gives more information and control but it is more complicated. If I want very simple I go to Orange Squeeze.

    What do others use?

    I use SqueezeCommander. It has not been updated in a long time but it works fine with all the new LMS updates and plugins. I also have Squeezer because it was free but I never use it.

    Squeeze Cntrl is cross platform Android and Windows, so I tend to use that. If you have an iOS device, iPeng is very popular, though I struggle with the interface. On iPads, there is the very elegant Squeezepad, which is my favorite. That said, I also like OrangeSqueeze on Android, and use it some.

    It appears I have accumulated a lot of Squeezebox controllers.

    iPeng in an iOS environment. Also allows either iPhone or iPad to be used as playback device.

    file type, Sample Rate. Bit depth, File length, etc. and you can actually view the raw tags among other things. It is also very user adjustable interface also. Quick pic....

    Since I don't use iOS, that app is not for me :D

    I get that info when I use JRiver and JRemote but for LMS and Android - Squeeze Cntrl is the only one that gives it.

    I don't have any challenges with it, since I'm not using it, but would ipeng be a good choice for a setup with iphones/pads as the player(s) combined with an older Windows computer, like Vista?
    And can one idevice be used to control another one?

    I'm doing alright playback-wise right now, but I'm always open to new options.

    Sure. I use Win7. An iPad Air2 using Shure se535 IEMs is my "bedroom system". It also serves as my primary remote when listening to the main system upstairs. I use an iPhone to control the garage system since I'm normally walking around.

    Yes. One can control any LMS attached based player. I'm running a number of different player types: microRendu, piCorePlayer, Squeezelite-Win and iPeng.

    Nothing serious, and I *do* use it. I just find the interface not as intuitive as some of the others. (That said, iPeng is arguably a better pick for power users, offering more options, and very good support.)

    I use Orange Squeeze on my Android tablet or just the plain ol' web interface on my Chrome book :)


    Cheers,

    I use Orange Squeeze as a remote and pair it with Squeeze Player for streaming to my phone. Unfortunately it's been a few years since I explored everything on the market and settled on this so I can't recall all my reasoning. I remember not liking Squeeze Control at all. They were all flawed but Orange Squeeze seemed the best. They all organized my music in some different way, none that I liked. The best among them seems to be iPeng, which I can't use but is installed on my wife's phone.
