    Hi KC

    Thanks for the feedback. The original design for BluOS was very similar to what you are proposing. We changed it two years ago as it was very problematic and many consumers were complaining the music they wanted was not being played but being queued for later.

    We also found you have many more options using the context menus when designing and curating your Playlists this way.

    If you are having issues or concerns about using our SmartPlay logic, here is a primer on how it works; https://support.bluesound.com/hc/en-us/articles/216863587

    I am still using that original design (my iPad is too old to update) and find it more user friendly than the current design. Tripling the number of things to do to add a song to the end of the play queue is a huge jump. I actually create all my playlists on the iPad and not the PC controller because it take so much longer. 

    I understand that some of your customer base had/has difficulty with the original logic but please consider making  it an option to revert to it.  Add a preferences menu option or make it hidden if you are worried about people making the switch by accident.  For those of us that create large playlists it outweighs the other options.

    Alternatively, make a public API and we can create our own interfaces or open source the controller code.

    Thanks.

    If you made this configurable, that would solve everybody's problem. For some reason I have great difficulty hitting the three dots to select whether to play it now or play next as I usually want. On my tablet and phone the three dots are so close to the edge that 90% of the time the tune ends up playing immediately and I have to go back to the queue and replay the last tune that was playing, very frustrating.

    The link to the Smartplay is broken.
