I loved the new Sonos mApp once it got introduced several weeks ago. But then it received an update, which introduced new design of the Album View. When I go to TIDAL > Albums > select particular album, instead of seeing a single album art header, Play/Shuffle buttons and a list of songs, I see big rectangular tiles of all songs. From UX/UI design and usability stand point it is a huge step backwards. Here are the issuse that I see:
1. Why do I have to see album art cover on each song several times, sometimes even more than ten times??
2. Where do I have to click to Play All from the beginning??
3. Where do I have to click to Shuffle All songs from the album??
4. If I want to play song #7, how do I know which one is it?? If I scroll down the tiles I can get easily lost looking for number 7!
All this looks more like a bug, rather than a well designed and usable screen. What is more, if I pin an album to Favorites and then access it from there... I will get the old good List View instead of this new terrible tiles, so it means the design is even inconsistent across all the app. See the screenshots attached.
Sonos Team, please revert back to the previous very functional design of Album View. Thank you!
