Hi all,

Since the original developer left the scene I decided to start looking after this app.
Happy to announce my first big update in the ToonStore with version 1.1.1.

Changelog:
1.1.1
- allow switch into dim state from the media screen

1.1.0
- taken over from Harmen who left the developer scene
- major rewrite of the internals of the app with a smaller footprint
- merged the functionality of the two tiles into one tile
- title of the song (from library or radio station) will be shown in dim state on the tile
- favourites screen now also contains a list of playlists to select (which will populate the queue)
- screen elements adjusted for the screen resolution of Toon 2
- various minor improvements, code cleanup ((almost) no warnings anymore in the console log)
- media screen has now fixed positions for the control buttons (not depending anymore on image size)
- screen elements are updated directly after selecting a track from the playlist
- play/pause buttons are only displayed after previous action has been completed
- tile and media screen are refreshed every 5 seconds during manual operations,
switching to every 20 seconds in dim state (to update current tracks on the tile)
- tile in dim state shows also if music is paused
- removed tiny thumbnails from the play queue list (saves memory)

Quite a lot of changes, hopefully seen as improvements by you as well.
Searching the media library is not possible yet (not sure if it support by the sonos-http-api).
At least you can make use of playlists now which hopefully compensates a bit.

Kind regardz,

Hi all,

my probably last release for now (unless nice feature requests are pooring in :) ), release 1.1.2 is now available in the ToonStore.

Changelog 1.1.2
- zone selection dropbox replaced with separate zone selection screen to allow more status feedback
- menu screen is also redesigned now:
When having entered a valid ipadres/poortnr the media screen is shown directly if there is only one Sonos zone,
the zone selection screen is shown if more zones exist.
- fix of a bug in 1.1.1: when a new playlist was selected it was automatically applied to the first zone, not to the active one.
- various code improvements and gui improvements
- queue is cleared before switching to a radio station
- zone selection screen contains control buttons for all zones in one screen

Kind regardz,

Hi Toonz,

I noticed that changing the volume does not affect all zones when playing in multiple zones at the same time (party mode like).
In fact only the 'master' zone (the one fetching the stream) is shown in the 'Room' overview and therefor I can also not update the volume of that room anymore.

I'm pretty new to the 'Toon app', but familiar with the node http api (I use it to control my sonos systems via Domoticz), so if you can guide me to the location on toon where the files are located I can have a look.

Thanks,
Martin
