Now that Apple allows users to add widgets in the lock screen of iphone and ipads, I would would like to be able to have a Sonos Widget. One of the reasons that i have stayed with Sonos 1 and a Sonos Bridge is that I still prefer my CR200 controller and to have a dedicated remote control. I find that having to get my phone, put the password in then open the app is very fiddly and I much prefer a the remote. As a compromise if I could access the Sonos app via a widget from the lock screen would be someway towards a compromise. Ideally I would love to see Sonos with built in controls and a small display to control its own or other speakers in the system.
A widget has to be the lowest cost and viable option, The widget could be access to the volume or what’s playing and then open the Sonos app.
