Is there a way to avoid the actual Sonos interface?
no offense, but... I just really don’t like it.
When I’m streaming Tidal, I want to use their friendly & much richer interface. Same idea with podcasts, etc.
All I want my Sonos to be is a digital portal.

Please, Sonos Community, save me from the bleak antiseptic (and frankly, painful) whiteness of it all...

What device? Third party alternatives exist for iPhone, iPad, and PC.

controlav - yes, iPhone & iPad.

So, we’ve solved (apparently, I’m not home right now) Tidal, what other work around do you know of?

SonoPad and SonoPhone are the third party solutions I personally recommend for iOS devices. I think there are others too, take a look in the App Store.
