I'm taking a few minutes to offer some feedback about the updated version of XiiaLive because it's the single most used app on my Android device. It's really important to me.
First I want to say that I think the new feature set is great. I want to make that clear so that you don't think I'm just here to criticize.The new features are great
However, the user interface took a serious step backwards. Navigation through the features, menus, etc. is much less intuitive.While the recording buffer is a terrific feature, it's taking up a ton of real-estate when it is being used and appears to be impossible to hide when its use isn't needed.
Lots of controls for navigating, adding favorites or tagging have gone from big and easy to small and fussy. I use XiiaLive almost every minute that I'm in my car and it's become significantly harder to operate. Some things, like connection status have become so small that they're now virtually useless to me in that environment.
This all brings me to my last and main complaint...the new skins. They're dreadful First, the "original" skin *isn't*...and it doesn't even function in landscape mode...the mode I use. Second, the use of fine-lined fonts and extremely low contrast themes is a big problem. Take Favorites on Classic Dark. A dark gray background with secondary information in increasingly tinier fonts in various shades of gray?
You need to put some thought into themes that are truly usable in the environments your customers use your product.
I doubt that I can find a better product. I don't want to even go looking. If these issues aren't addressed, I will have to. As good as the new features are, the interface went from invisible to frustrating.
Oh, also, possibly connected to the new playback buffer...I'm getting intermittent blasts of garbled audio. That's new,
Thanks for your attention.
