Received the update yesterday. The new graphics are nice, plus there are some nice new options. According to the guys in the iOS 7 thread, this version seems to have fixed all their problems. Well done everyone!February 6, 2014 at 12:50 pm #64191
Some feedback on v1.5 after trying it for a while. First, I’ve had issues with its display. Songs’ graphics and volume slider are disappearing at random. Instead, there’s a very faint large DPS graphic that fills most of the display. Sometimes, I can get the normal graphics back by locking the phone while a song is playing, then unlocking the phone. This issue goes away if I close and restart DPS, so it’s possible it needed a restart because of the new version. When the graphic does come back, though, the top part of a song’s graphic occupies the same space as the wording for repeat and shuffle.
Second, and this is just a personal preference, I prefer the normal controls for repeat and shuffle. I don’t like having words in their place. The words are very small with a dull blue font plus, being partially hidden in a song’s graphic makes them very difficult to see. I thought Bongiovi was striving for a consistent look across platforms. This does not fit in at all.
EDIT: Seem like the DPS restart fixed the missing graphics issue. As for repeat and shuffle icons, aside from using the “normal” ones as before, I’d suggest making the fonts/icons white so they can be seen through on screen graphics. I have an iPhone 4S which may be part of the problem. I wonder if the issue of being lost in the song’s graphics happens on the iPhone 5 series, which has a larger screen.February 7, 2014 at 6:45 pm #64190
The lost graphics problem has showed up again, so my original restart wasn’t actually a fix. This time, though, the volume slider is there. I’ve noticed there’s a bit of a delay when DPS loads album graphics, which I haven’t noticed before this version.February 21, 2014 at 9:35 am #64189thomMember
Some graphics problems here as well. If I’m playing a song with the album cover displayed, then switch to the songs list, when I return to album cover view it has disappeared. But if I pause the song, then hit play, the album cover reappears.February 26, 2014 at 9:46 am #64188Joseph BeatyKeymaster
