The wait is over

by Volker Weber

The long awaited Sonos controller for the iPad finally made its way into the AppStore. Enjoy. You will discover new functionality once you start using it. Not everything is as obvious as it could be. There is a whole lot of drag and drop in the queue and from the library. You can also swipe some areas to switch from one zone group to the other.

There will also be a system upgrade to 3.3 which brings Premium Spotify support to the countries where it is available. If you have a premium account on Spotify, and you can't set it up on your Sonos, you have to make it believe you are in fact in a supported country. Just update your Sonos registration temporarily and then do an update check. Even if it says there are no updates, you will find the service in your setup screen. Once you have activated your account inside Sonos, you can move your location back and it will continue to work.

I love the new Sonos iPad app. My favorite feature so far is the drag & drop capability. Now you can add a song to a specific location in a playlist. Previously you could only tell it it play a song next or to add it at the very end of the playlist. The second big "feature" is that Sonos app makes great use of the iPad's screen real estate. Working with playlist got a whole lot easier just because of the screen size. The one thing I'm not to enthusiastic about is the font that's being used. It looks somewhat washed out (due to anti aliasing).
The app works fine on iPad with iOS 4.2 Beta 2 installed. Now the only thing that's missing (and that applies to the iPhone version as well) is support for fast app switching. Each time you leave the app and reopen it it looses its context.
Anyway, great app!

I seriously like "frag & drop". btw, when is QuakeLive for the iPad published?

Thomas Lang - We'll release the app in additional languages later this year. Thanks for your patience.
