Great app, needs file ordering options. I use this to stream audiobooks from my PC to my phone, and it works very well. However, I would love the option to sort by metadata fields e.g. order by track number or by Album. (I would gladly pay if this feature was added!)

Not a streaming player I originally couldn't see any shares; my VPN was routing local network requests through the VPN. Disabling the service fixed that issue. Unfortunately, the player is not a streaming player - to play a track, one must download it to one's device, and the entire track must download before starting. Download playlist and clear cache functions help mitigate waiting between tracks, but one must still wait initially when adding new music, and long playlists simply won't be possible for people with limited space.

Great app but need to add more features It would be perfect if it could prepare a list of songs shared over network and could provide the search over synchronized media.

Works as expected A few niggling (non essential) UI issues, but does exactly what you need from a network media player. With an improved UI, it'd be a 5 star app.

Just works but lacks features This app worked for me where others had failed: it simply connected to my shared folder on windows and played music. However, currently music can only be played from one folder - which is sad when I want to play all music from one artist. I hope it will be added soon.
