I don't have the same levels of hate for the new controller as some people posting on here, but it could really do with a few tweaks to make it more usable...

1. The list of tabs disappear when I'm in the full screen 'now playing' - nav would be clearer and easier if it stayed, and maybe even had a 'now playing' tab?

2. I'd like to be able to change room selection from the now playing screen - you could combine the new slide up group screen to let me select a different room as well as group it?

3. I don't have many rooms on my system, so I'd like to be able to switch rooms from the minimised 'now playing' bar - it could let me do that by swiping left or right, maybe with a visual clue next to room name to make it obvious

4. The rooms screen uses a lot of screen for not much content. Since the space is there please can you add player controls on there, and why not make the group button persistent - why make me tap twice to group a room that's not currently selected when I could access it directly?

Most of the time I'm using the app I'm either trying to change room or browse music - making those key functions directly accessible from every screen with minimum taps would make the app better!

Thanks!

I totally agree with this.

If I set off looking for music then want to change which room I am controlling during that search, it is tricky.
