AURALiC Lightning DS iPhone App


Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone:

 

After a long waiting, AURALiC team is going to release the a series of public testing versions of Lightning DS for iPhone starting from next week. We would like to invite existing customers to join our test program so we can finalize the software in another two weeks time then make it available officially within this year.

 

If you are interested in helping us to make the app better, please send email to [email protected] with the following information:

 

 

  • Your ARIES device S/N
  • Apple ID

 

To participate in the test program, you will need to qualify the following requirements:

 

 

  • Own at least one ARIES, ARIES LE or ARIES MINI with latest firmware
  • Own an iPhone with model newer than 4S running iOS 8.0 and above (4S is still working but not recommended due to its performance)
  • Install Apple's TestFlight App on iPhone to receive the test version software
  • Enough storage available on your iPhone (similar to what is required on iPad, based on your music library size)

 

After the testing version is available next week, you will receive an email in your Apple ID email box sending by Apple, please open the link in the email using the iPhone which you want the app to be installed then follow TestFlight instruction to receive the software.

 

If you find anything or have any suggestion on improving the software, please use Feedback function inside the App to send us email directly.

@mikey8811 - I don't think they are leaving 4S users out, rather highlighting potential performance issues, which I think is good that they are being upfront about that.

 

Similar to what Apple, Roon and others have done, a demarcation point of minimum hardware for acceptable performance and/or support.

How's the responsiveness when restoring the iPhone app to the foreground? Do you see the same delay as it reconnects to the Aries as with the LDS app for iPad? And are you restored to exactly where you were left off before switching the app to the background?

On my 6s its blistering fast. Nearly instant.

Great news as I have a 6s.

 

But how about where it returns you to? If I'm browsing the artist Led Zeppelin, and then I flip over to check mail, and then flip back to LDS, will I be taken right back to viewing the artist Led Zeppelin?

 

LDS for iPad does *not* take me right back to the artist I was previously browsing. It should.

I tried it on my iPhone 6s first time yesterday. Well done, when I consider it is still beta. Crashed once after initial start, but after that it worked few hours without any major problem. Wake from background definitely quicker than iPad version, about one second I guess.

Just one thing: it would be nice to have oportunity to SET GRID DENSER. Only four covers on the screen? Almost useless, when you want to scroll through 1000 album library! Twelve (3x4) would be nice... Grid settings (just like on iPad) should resolve it.

This is my concept of iPhone LDS grid view 3x3. It would seem like this:

Mr. Xuanqian Wang replied to my suggestion. He wrote, that he will put it in wish list and if more people will ask for this option, they put into settings an option to choose between 2x2 and 3x3 grid view.

So, if anyone like this idea, please, let Auralic know!

Thanks!

Lumin for iPhone shown working nicely with my Aries. It's immediately responsive when brought back to the foreground and returns to exactly where I left it. It only sees my library though, so not useful with TIDAL.
