    4) Bookmarking playback position
      4a) It would be extra-nice if you could custom-set different skip durations for back/fwd (i.e. skip 10s back and 30s fwd). Instacast has this feature and it's awesome.
    5) FLAC playback and/or on-the-fly transcoding

Number 1: Ad infinitum. Number 2 is an interested prospect. It was recommend to me (and you'll likely see improvements in this area) of implementing easier forward/back navigation, but specific skipping intervals is a new one to me. Would you mind sharing your use case for a feature like this while listening to music? Number 3 is a definite "child" request of folder-based browsing. I obviously can't filter by a folder unless I'm browsing by folder. That being said, if the current position on folder navigation changes this would probably be a likely solution for users that have "Music", "Audiobooks" (which Audiophone will likely never be optimized for, as a heads up), etc. and want to focus on one root directly. Number 4 (the bookmarking part) is also of interest to me. Care to elaborate on your end goal with this one? Finally, I addressed number 5 above.

2 and 4 are specific, but really important to me personally. I listen to a daily radio show that I download and play through iSub. It's 3-4 hours long, which makes scrubbing a real pain in the neck. Even with extra-fine scrubbing it's hard to get to within more than a minute or so of where I want to be.

iSub (and Instacast) have settings that give you two "jump" buttons, which let you jump back/fwd by a set increment. In iSub the fwd/back increments are the same, but instacast lets you set different increments in each direction. I find that 10 seconds back is perfect for when you are listening to something (spoken word or music) and you want to hear something you just missed. (Perfect example: when you get a SMS and the iPhone drops the volume for a few seconds to play the alert sound, or you get a turn-by-turn GPS announcement). 30 seconds is the perfect jump-forward to skip through a segment (like commercials or announcements).

As a side-note, I do use this feature for music occasionally. It makes it easy to skip back and re-hear a verse that I like, especially if I'm trying to really "hear" the lyrics. And I admit I like the 30 seconds forward button when I listen to something like MF DOOM since he puts a lot of musical collage-type stuff in his songs. Sometimes I want to skip straight to the verse, you know?

Bookmarks, again because i spend a lot of time listening to long things (radio, podcast, audiobook) it really helps to have a bookmark feature.

One other feature that I always wished Ben would put into iSub is variable playback speed. That's the only reason I ever use the stock iOS Music app, since I like to listen to audiobooks at 2x speed (which is actually 1.5x). But I hate having to use iTunes, and being able to play at 1.5x via a subsonic app would be killer.

So iSub is completely incompatible with iOS 8. Is there any chance that Audiophone is going to add caching anytime soon?

All the other features on the wish list would be really nice, but honestly caching is the keystone to the whole thing. Without caching I'm going to have to go back to the standard iOS music app :cry:

Who is posting the updates to the app store now that iSub is no longer actively developed (but apparently actively maintained)? Is it the original developer (Ben?) or has someone else been able to take over?

I am using Audiophone 1.0.2, iOS 8 and Subsonic 5. I have noticed that Genres tab doesn't work. Nothing shows up.

Thanks for developing a very nice subsonic client. I look forward as with others to caching.

Does this app do the Remote Control functionality for the premium users? I used to have the subsonic app when I had Android and I could Jukebox the server from the phone. Does this app offer that?

Thanks,



Nevermind, because you didn't reply I bought iSub which is working great!.

Thank you for not responding,

You'll do well with iSub. Even without active development it's by far the best option available on iOS.

How sad is that? :)

Kinda sad.

I dig it so far.

I just didn't upgrade the iOS and everything is fine. Beats having to deal with Pandora and iTunes.

The iOS8 update did eventually get approved by Apple, so iSub works again.

And yes, it remains far and away the best available option for iOS, even after being developmentally dormant for almost 2 years...

Any word on Audiophone development? I feel bad that the app store reviews are so negative, and have undoubtedly affected sales. This is a really good app, and really the only option for those of us that like to browse by tags. Features are still light, but the developer at one point did mention adding features was important and on the roadmap. More at issue right now, however, is proper iPhone 6 and 6+ resolution optimization.

This is abandonware. Hope the dev enjoys my $5. Has taught me to be more circumspect in the future.
