landscape view revamp

Krzysztof Byszewski 6 years ago • updated by Jona (Lead Developer) 4 years ago 10

I use the app on tablet in landscape mode. It's nice...but....kind of awkward to navigate. You might redesign the landscape mode a little bit. portrait mode is composed in nice and clean way but this just doesn't translate into landscape. You can't just rotate stuff. On tablets and in landscape you have to treat it more like a open book (two pages left and right)


Have a look on tunein radio app on iOS (not android). they have a very nice navigation for iPad and they solve access to relaven info by sliding left/right


I like the quick access to menu on landscape mode but in fairness I would more consider putting some more relevant info on left or/and right slide menu.

At the end of the day you have to verify whats the 90% of actions you would do on radio app like this. For me it's not searching or access ing settings it's switching between stations I already found and looking on more relevant info if I like what I listen. 


What I like:

visual stream representation

volume slider! (It's the only app that has it tight on the radio display screen)

slider menu (nice way to quickly access it)

Great feedback.  We mainly designed landscape to be very simple for small screens.  The design hasn't really been optimized for tablets or TV   That is something we are looking forward on improving very soon!

And may I suggest the "Menu Bar" always visible in landscape orientation. (the thing I don't know the proper english designation of, contains "Top Sender" "Genre", "Search", "Favorites"; "Player", "History", "Settings"), instead of need to slide it out. The position on the right side is right. Thanks very much!

Thanks for your thoughts. We will look into this... What device do you have?

The device is a 7 inch tablet (no phone, no gps) android 4.2.2, google certified. Brand is a Medion Lifetab (Lenovo-produced).

Hi!

Today I reported the feedback, that there is a problem with the volume slider in landscape view. And now I found this post!

Does that mean that problem exits for a lot of months now and nothing happens?
And I suggested a long while ago that the buttons in the player do sound "click". But they are silent.

And today I suggest that the play and stop buttons visible in any pane, specially in the favorites pane.

Thanks you for considering.
Hey guys, sorry this hasn't been completed yet. I manage, develop, and provide support for this app. It's just about a one man team. That is the main reason why some changes have been this slow. :( I haven't forgotten about this request just haven't had the time to get to it.
But you are a Head Developer!

:) I know still hard :/ But I will get the layout improved for larger screens soon! But hopefully soon as like couple months not years.
