This app BLOWS!
I’ve tried it in the past and don’t remember it having all these GUI issues, but the reviews below indicate they were still present.
The search function ROYALLY SUCKS!
Whan I search for something, I want ALL results to appear in the search results, just like iTunes.
With this (cr)app, you’re shown a list of items to choose from:
Do you want to see the ARTISTS including that term, ALBUMS including that term, COMPOSERS including that term, or TRACKS including that term?
I WANT TO SEE THEM ALL, GODDAMMIT!!!
IN ONE F’N LIST!!!
It often fails to find tracks that are in its own database.
Tonight I was in iTunes where I started playing "She’s a Beauty," by the Tubes.
I decided it would sound better in Audirvarna, so I switched to it and typed "beauty" in the box.
One Go Go’s album and three Go Go’s tracks were found, nothing else.
Then I typed "tubes," and two albums and eleven tracks were found. I clicked on TRACKS, and all eleven appeared in a list, and the 6th one down was "She’s a Beauty."
What a POS!
And any music player that doesn’t support iTunes ratings is OUT for me!
I have thousands of unrated tracks, and when I’m playing them in a third party audio player and I rate one, the app had damn well better transfer the rating to iTunes!!!
Otherwise I WILL NOT waste time playing them outside of iTunes, no matter how much better they may sound.
And I do prefer the sound of Audivarna over iTunes played through Hear to my desktop speakers. So it’s a shame its GUI sucks so bad!
Not only that, but it’s VERY SLOW to open and load its database after caches have been cleared (which I do regularly).
iTunes takes about 7 seconds, Audivarna takes about 28 seconds, or 300% longer, while it says "Loading library..."
