I am using the AirStudio App for the AW1000.
The AW1000 itself in general is good.
However, the App (v.1.6.2) in practice is still a beta version. It has many problems/issues. To mention some:

Problems AirStudio app
- The App starts with an unnecessary intro screen (only the very first time this screen is helpful).
- The App screens are basically designed for phones. Screens for tablets, which show more information etc., are very much appreciated.
- The App is freezing many times on my Asus TF101 Android 4.0 tablet. I have to restart the App to continue using it. On my HTC Wildfire S Android phone the App almost never freezes.
- The App is very very slow.
- On my tablet I cannot change landscape in portrait.
- On my tablet many times the screens of the App are not 'complete' or 'damaged' (graphical issues?)
- The soft volume controls are hardly to find. When playing Spotify I can't find them at all. Why not using the hardware volume controls of the phone or tablet (like for example BubbleUPnP)?
- Why do I have to choose and connect the player and source every time I start the App? Why is the last selection not saved in memory before the App is closed?
- Many times the App losses the connection with the AW1000, especially after the tablet or phone returns from sleep mode.
- Battery of my smartphone is flat within a few hours of using the App.
- Why can we choose 10 presets for Internet Radio in the App, while the AW1000 has only 5 preset buttons?

Problems AW1000
- When selecting on the App a full album for playing from my network drive (using DNLA/UPnp) the AW1000 stops playing after approx. 5 songs. After that I have to use the App again to restart the remaining songs. Using BubbleUPnP instead of AirStudio I don't have this problem.
- When using an ethernet (wired) connection, it's impossible to change the IP-address, even if I change it in the router using DHCP.

Hi, after I've destroyed :mad: my MCI500 I'm now using AW1000 and basically I'm fine. I've 2 points/questions to the team:

1) When I'm using the Air Studio App (Android ICS 4.0) I can only see my music fron the internal SD, only after starting the Twonky app I can play music from external SD card.

2) The App provides Deezer and Spotify,both want's money for playing songs :D

Is there any possibility to integrate Apps like GrooveMobile orBear share ?

Would appreciate a usefull answer.

regards Gerhard

Hi,

One more Q. Under settings, did you select the folder where your music is? There is an option add content folder. Did you select your folder ?

gerwein

Yes, tried to add folders, but the issue seems to be the Air Studio doesn't recignize my external SD where all my music is filed. However, it's not longer an issue as I found out when I start e.g. Bubble UPnP Air Studio provides then Bibble UPnP as music source and it woks perfect.
I'm much more interessted how I can stream live music from Groovemobile to my AW1000.

Txs no need for further investigation as I've found a work around as described. I'm much more interested if there is a possibility to include an internet music on demand APP other then Deezer or Simplify ?
