I'm pushing 3.4.1.60 today. It has a potential fix for when the notification doesn't always show up, or at least that is the hope. Thanks +Caroline Tipton  for the log file!

I'm updating, yet again. 3.4.1.58 has another fix for not remembering playlists if the app is removed from memory. I apologize for the constant updating right now. Hopefully we'll be stable for a little while now.

Thanks, the exit pop-up is less intrusive visually now, IMHO.

It is a busy Saturday for me, but just pushed an update (3.4.1.42) that makes it so the Quit Dialog doesn't show if you are currently playing music. I think this will be a good compromise between making a quit button that a new user can find, and forcing you to stop playing music if you have a habit of backing out of the app.

+Scott Eden , OK, what about this, I'm working on a "Hide" button in the dialog, which will hide the dialog forever if pressed. You won't be able to quit in the future, but you won't be annoyed by the dialog, unless you clear the app cache.

I'm rolling out version 3.4.1.34 today. This update has some small fixes and support for our new Ringtone Maker application. I've seen an issue where a notification just dangles around for a while. Let me know if anyone else is seeing this. Oh, and I finally relented and added an exit button if you are backing out of the app. I need to write a whole blog post on why that happened.

That's exactly when I don't want nor need to see the dialog, I don't know about other users but I'm well aware of when I've chosen to exit the program. If it needs to be seen at all it should be when people ARE currently playing music.

I'm sorry if I'm being quite curt, this feature has become an extreme annoyance.

Any last.fm users out there? If so, how do you use it? What do you do with all the play counts you scrobble?

Cool that you're genuinely interested in the use of it, as well as fixing it's implementation in the app! Developers are human, yay!

I like seeing the comments for tracks I love or new music, and seeing what some of the other listeners listen for ideas! It gives you a compatibility rating, so if I see someone comment on a new song I like, I can see how high we match. Then, it gives me an idea as to whether I will listen to the other stuff they enjoy!

I'm considering adding a free feature to Rocket Player, but it requires a third party partner that may go away at some point. How upset would you be if the free feature went away?

Depends on the feature, but at the moment we don't have it. Something is better than nothing!

Version 3.4.0.56 is rolling out today. The only change is that you can turn off lockscreen art on Lollipop now. Just go "menu->Settings->Operational->Android Wear - Lockscreen Art" and disable Android Wear support.

I'm releasing 3.4.1.54 today. It should fixe a bug some people see where their queue stays the same forever.

Releasing version 3.4.1.52 today. This doesn't have much in it, but is a re-build with all the latest libraries, so Chromecast in part should have the latest bugfixes. Let us know if this does break something for you.

+Nigel Docherty , For non-beta users, there is certainly a delay in updates of a couple months. Even then, I slowly roll out each release, so non-beta users may not have the same version.

I'm rolling out 3.4.1.40 today with fixes for hiding/unhiding ratings on album art, and lyrics alignment on some devices.

You just need the update, 3.4.1.40, which fixes this issue.

I just wanted to share a new setup for me. I really like listening to music showing lyrics all day. Luckily, the S6 we have for testing can be charged wirelessly, so I bought a little charger on Amazon for $13. Now the screen is on all day while playing music, streamed via Bluetooth, and the battery is fully charged when I finish coding for the day. :-D

As for changing the layout, we've had ideas about that. Unfortunately, new layouts are super duper time intensive. We've got to get the layout to work fluidly across Android's 10,000 devices. Further, Rocket Player already has so many options that its size is getting big. Right now, I think you might see alternate version of Rocket Player instead of themes that mutate it. A version of Rocket Player with even bigger buttons and even smaller buttons and podcast specific buttons might be better served as three new apps, choose the one like the best. :-)

Version 3.4.0.52 is rolling out tonight. This adds some fixes to artist and album artist tab that I need help testing. Turns out that if you had accented and non-accented versions of the same word, Rocket Player would hide one of the versions. Not cool.  

Also, I've added scrolling text to the player view, so you can see what is playing.

Scrolling text is a blessing for podcasts with long titles and similar beginnings. Thanks, now I can tell them apart without listening to them...
By the way, don't forget to update the translations, a few of them are still waiting to be refreshed in the app.

Don't bother here. Probably closed for a private party. Hoped they paid well enough to cover me for a long time.

Not the best looking shop in the world, but they were able to easily re-glue some trip on my '03 Infinity. A much better job then if I attempted this myself.

Awesome food. Maybe pricey, but pork belly was awesome.
