SqueezeCast setup kind of cryptic
No setup instructions, so I had to ask the developer for help via his forum. He provided adequate help, but the setup instructions could have been more specific. I wish it were available in an iPad version, but it works OK.

It's not ready yet in my mind especially if you have other squeezebox players. No squeezebox sync option like with the other players. The UI needs rework and connection issues are still present

Works as advertised...
...which is to say minimally. Features I would want to see in the next update are: - full iPad support - better playlist handling - music library Search - ability to control another player, including podcasts, Internet radio, favorites, stored playlists, etc. - separate IP address fields for local and truly remote access. My server is on a NAT router, so a simple IP address is fine when using my home Wi-Fi, but not when out & about. And the remote IP field should accept a domain name (especially important for dynamic-IP users employing a Dynamic DNS service).

Please continue to develop
This could be such a cool/useful app. Right now it is okay for the features it has but it could be so much better. Please continue developing this app. There are at least a few people like myself that have actually coughed up money for this app, likely in hopes that feature development might continue, but buyer's remorse is just around the corner :(

Doesn't function
I'm a sophisticated squeezebox user. This isn't buggy- it doesn't work at all- Developer- please finalize your app before you sell it. Reported to Apple. ADDENDUM: The above review giving the app four stars is a ruse by the developer. This app doesn't function.

Not quite there yet
I was aware that this app was a going to be fairly basic but I expected it to stream reliably using the WiFi network I have at home. I found it easy to set up as I only needed to enter the IP address of an existing Sueezebox server I am using with my hardware squeezeboxes. What I found was that I got stuttering at the start of each new track. It would usually settle down and play the track once past the danger period of the first 15 seconds of any given item. However, for me, it is not usable in its present form. I had similar issues playing flac tracs as AAC encoded purchases from the iTunes music store. I expect future updates will address this issue so I will keep the app and hope that things improve.
