The recent fix to make the next/previous buttons smarter seems to have broken existing functionality. It seems to now completely ignore the setting "App Control -> Player Next/Prev". I have always used it set to "Playlist" but now the next/previous buttons choose Favorite Stations instead of advancing in the playlist.
In case it's relevant, I don't use Favorite stations because you can't play them based on category or group them in any way. So I have a few stations that are actually playlists, each with dozens of related stations. So I can load the "Talk" or "Rock" station, and then use the next/previous buttons to navigate the stations without mixing genres.
The fact that Xiia was able to do this was why I bought the app to begin with, it seems to be overlooked functionality in most music apps. But up until the most recent update, it worked perfectly in Xiia.
I've been able to get around it temporarily by using another app ( Llama ) to create a "fast forward" button on my desktop. That seems to do what "Next" used to do. However, that's not as nice as the widget and also doesn't address the same issue happening on the lock screen music control. It's also now always selecting the next station instead of the next playlist item.
Just a note about what it used to do... Before this fix, there was already an inconsistency in how the widget buttons worked in relation to the setting in "App Control". The lock-screen widget would honor that setting and work as expected. However, the desktop widget has never worked correctly. It has always looked for the next station regardless of the setting. So I would just use the lock-screen widget to get the desired behavior.
But with both of them now ignoring the setting in "App Control", it almost seems that instead of fixing the 'desktop' widget, the 'lock screen' widget has now been broken as well.
Please investigate and fix if possible. I love this app and recommend it to everyone I meet. But this change in functionality has really limited it for me :(
