I'm pleased to to announce that play:Sub 1.3 has hit the App Store.

Here's the "What's New" text from the App Store:

• Secure authentication for Subsonic 5.3 servers.
• User interface tweaks:
  Optionally enqueue single tracks instead of playing “container”.
  Optionally fetch artist imagery from (Subsonic 5.1)
And of course the usual tweaks, performance improvements and fixes.

For feature requests or issues:
please use the in-app form (play:Sub | Feedback),
or the contact form on

The handling of large collections was the major painpoint in the previous release, and play:Sub has gone through quite a lot of internal changes to improve that.
With that out of the way, I still have a long list of things to add to play:Sub next year.
