Don't Like the New App

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Improve the Controller 5.0+ User Experience

Please please please make the previous version of the ipad app available. The new app is is the classic error of form over functions, graphic designers with no human interface skill sets making pretty decisions.

Why are rooms now hidden behind a drop down instead of all being in view? Why waste so much real estate with large music source icons instead of the easier to use column list? Why hide scrubbing and queue function/access behind buttons? Why an all-white, batteryhogging screen that illuminates the whole room? Why still hide the eq functions in settings? Dumb dumb dumb.... Please give your users an option to get the prior app, which was vastly better organized and much more functional, and frankly, more unique than this jony I've "me-too" mess....

Hi Everyone,

We've heard from a few of you that you're having problems loading or viewing the thread.  Many of you are getting a Gateway 502 message when trying to load all comments, or just timing out when trying to view the page.  This is happening to us as well.  

It looks like we're starting to run into these problem because there's so many pages of comments, and long chains of replies to those comments.  We're hitting the upper limit of what can be displayed in a single thread.  

What we're going to do is to create a new thread and merge this one into it.  That will preserve the votes and comments, and if you're following this thread, you'll still continue to follow the new thread.  I'll begin doing this in an hour from now and let everyone know when it's complete.

I hope it goes without saying, but we're not doing it to hide or obscure your comments in any way, but rather to make sure that you can continue to express yourselves and make your voices heard.

We're going to leave this thread in an open status right now so that all of the comments on replies are viewable, when it's closed they disappear. Because of the number of replies and comments in this thread there are issues loading the various pages. A "Bad Gateway" message can come up while trying to view all the posts. There's a new thread with the followers and Me Toos that we created which will load much better.

Can you please add new comments to the merged thread found here
