Haha., yes it would seem like that. I totally agree that it is not worthwhile, - but it is there!The Lyngdorf app doesn’t have great user experience. The streamer control is too basic. ( being polite )
I would have loved to be in the design meeting when it was suggested that every time a user returned to the App it forgot where they were and took them back to the root of their music library. Even if the phone had locked itself through the default settings on say an iPhone.
Then another suggestion of ensuring there was no way of queuing up what the user would want to listen to next.
Lots of nodding heads and it was all agreed.
The player itself has not gotten so much attention, as you as a lyngdorf costumer are assumed to know better already, and would prefer something like ROON to playback, find, discover and organise your library as well as your favorite HIFI streaming service.
No matter what lyngdorf would do in order to enhance the DNLA browsing experience, it will never get anywhere near that. The costumers are not "average joe", so the company are not spending time and money on something that virtually none of the users will use for real. Thats why you cant make playlists and things like that too. It is simply a "convinience player" when everything else fails.
Thats why we ROON or something else similar (when not playing hard, real media, that is... naturally
Where i disagree is on the APP user experience, when NOT using it as a DNLA browser.. The lyngdorf app is great, smooth, convinient way to the most important features you need. And it does that extremely well and intuitive on my view.
