SqueezeCommander is a new Android Remote Control app for your
I've tried all available SqueezeBox apps on the Android market, but I
was not really happy with them.
So, I've finally decided to write my own! :-)
SqueezeCommander is now available on Android Market.
For more details and screenshots, please take a look at the
announcement in my blog: http://sqcmdr.flattermann.net
I hope you'll like it. Have a lot of fun!

=== AUTOMATICAL SERVER DISCOVERY ===
When you start SqueezeCommander it searches for SqueezeBoxServers in
your local network and automatically establishes a connection to the
first available server.
If the auto-discovery fails, you can of course also enter a server
=== SUPPORT FOR PASSWORD PROTECTED SQUEEZEBOXSERVERS ===
SqueezeCommander supports password protected SqueezeBoxServers to
=== NOW PLAYING SCREEN WITH ARTWORK ===
If you are connected to a Server and a Player, you will be redirected
to the Now Playing screen. This screen is the main view of
SqueezeCommander. It shows informations about the current song and the
artwork if available.
=== FAST INCREMENTAL LIBRARY BROWSE ===
SqueezeCommander is created with large music libraries in mind. It uses
a fast incremental library search, that should not slow down or block
the User Interface while browsing your library.
Furthermore, all library lists show a FastScroll area on the right to
scroll very fast through long lists (instead of flinging the screen
many, many times).
=== FAST LIBRARY SEARCH ===
You can search your library by Artist, by Album, by Track and so on.
For large Libraries, that would be hard work for your little mobile,
therefore SqueezeCommander delegates this task to the SqueezeBoxServer
for a pretty fast library search.
=== MUSIC DOWNLOAD TO SD CARD ===
Never leave your home without music!
You can now select single tracks, whole albums or even whole artists
and download them to your mobiles SD card. After the download, theyll
show up in your favorite Android music player app.
=== INTERNET RADIO BROWSE ===
You can browse through all radio stations around the world picked by
the SqueezBox staff.
Of course, you can also enter a custom Radio URL.
Multi-Player and Multi-Server support
=== SQUEEZCOMMANDER SUPPORTS MULTIPLE PLAYER AND MULTIPLE SERVERS. ===
The servers can be arranged in Sync Groups to play the same songs. You
can switch a player (or a complete Sync Group) to another server or to
=== MYSQUEEZEBOX.COM SUPPORT ===
You can switch your players to MySqueezeBox.com and control them
independently from your local SqueezeBoxServer. So you dont need to
have your Server powered up 24/7 but you can still listen to your
favourite Internet Radio.
=== ACTIVE DEVELOPMENT ===
This is a very active project, so if youve found a bug or want to make
a request for enhancement, please open a ticket in my Bug Tracker.
Im eager to squeeze existing bugs and implement new features, so
please take the chance and open a ticket. :-)
=== WHAT'S NEXT? ===
First, I would like to fix any remaining bugs - that's why I need your
After that, the next features that I would like to implement are:
* SqueezePlay/Jive Menus
