User reviews of BubbleDS
It works great on the Samsung Galaxy SII (Android 2.3.3) but it barely works at all on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (Android 3.1) Edit: I tried a beta of the upcoming version and that one does work with the tab (and is much improved in general!)

Library Good for what it does but could do with library refresh, reset or check for changes.

The best way to control a DS, period. Having used most (if not all) the different methods for controlling a DS, this app is easily the best. Even better than Linn's own Kinsky.

A must for Android Linn ds users Absolutely perfect, and far better the Linn's own control point software, and anything else for that matter!

Almost perfect but clumsy source selection Need to integrate amplifier and DS sources into a single list so you can change from TV to playlist without having to change device first.
