Hi all

I'm happy to announce that iPad support is now available on TestFlight for our beta users. We have been working on this for the last two months and are finally close to completion. The first version will not give you a new UI experience but will make everything work in landscape and portrait. Please try it out and let us know what you think. If you are not yet a beta user and want to become one, please send me a private message through this forum and i will add you. 

Known issues

Player layout can break if orientation changes while on another page

Setup pages for Google Cast and BeoSound Shape are still not working well in landscape

Best regards

Thomas Andersen, Bang & Olufsen

Landscape playing screen still does not work for me (iPad Mini, IOS 11.1 (beta) , B&O App 1.2.0 (1.2.0.9652).

Issue reported the day it was released.

@mbolo01: I was going to push the latest but apparently Apple is suddenly enforcing some new meta data requirements. I will try to get it fixed today and push the version where it is fixed

@MrAndersen: Today’s release has indeed fixed the landscape playing screen on the iPad, well done.

Icon to exit playlist is back too and track labels alignments are ok now, re-well done!

Note: I suggest standardisation in the little arrows icons, e.g the playlist exit one is bigger and bolder than the playing screen minimize one which is bigger than the expand playing screen.

Hi Thomas,

The rendering on iPad is awesome, clean, stylish and so... Beo-ish!

Great job! Thanks!

Still missing for me: shuffle play for playlists.

Have a great Sunday,

Yann.

There is now a shuffle button in the playlist screen, works well with Deezer and DLNA generated playlists, at the bottom of the screen

Wow - looks great.

Waiting for the official release of the iPad app ;-)

How does it look with a radio station, when you use Spotify Connect etc?

MM

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

Hi Thomas,

I do not have the beta app. But can you please check if the following problem is fixed?

 

Setting:

BeoVision Avan 2014 with integrated BeoSound Essence 2.

B&O app 1.1.9.

 

When playing radio via the essence through the BV it is impossible to switch back to the BV via the app.

In the homescreen of the app, when you touch the BV the current device bar at the bottom keeps showing the essence.

As the BV sources are not shown in the source list of the essence it is not possible to switch from radio listening to TV watching via the app.

 

 

 

- Flere

smile and enjoy the moment

@Flere: We are working on integrated setup, but it will not be in this release but the next one. You could consider to be a beta tester on that perhaps? It is pretty complicated and we are looking for testers with real setups to verify all the use cases. 

 

@mbolo: Good point about the back arrows. We will streamline.
