I'd like to request (again) the ability to configure the Controller apps to change how a song is added to the play queue. To reduce the number of clicks/motions needed to add a song I like to propose the following options that allow users to return to the old interface behavior.
Single click on song - Add song to end of playlist and keeps playing current song. If nothing is playing start playing the selected song.
Double click on a song - Add song to beginning/end/next (configurable) point of playlist and start playing song.
I like to start listening by starting up a song and then add additional songs to the queue so the single click to add makes things easy. Currently it takes 3 times as many things to do to add a song on the PC desktop app (right click, move mouse down, left click). On the Android app it's 2 times..
We don't need to make this the default behavior but please allow users to change their preferences to suit their listening methods and to minimize the number of steps it takes to create a play queue. Bluesound used to have a single click - add last behavior until you changed it. Please give us some ability to configure how we use the controller. It shouldn't be too many lines of code. I am still using an original iPad with an old version of the controller so I can create my play queue more efficiently.
Of course you can always publish the API and see what independent developers can create...
