Orange Squeeze: Your fast, friendly remote control for your Logitech Squeezebox family of devices.

Orange Squeeze automatically discovers and connects to your local Logitech Media Server (formerly Squeezebox Server) over WiFi, or the web site.

November 2013 -- New in 2.0 -- Compatible with KitKat -- Free upgrade!!!
- Full tablet support with fluid grid-style browsing that accentuates your beautiful artwork. Configure how large you want your grids to be, or if you you can choose to revert back to traditional list-style browsing.
- New UI based on the standard Android action bar and navigation drawer patterns. Your home menu and player list are just a swipe away at any time!
- New artist artwork generation technique using a more traditional grid instead of the overlapping cards model in the past.
- The current playlist view is updated to include some nice gestures, such as swipe-to-remove and also long-press to reorder. Overall the current playlist view is faster and more robust than before.
- Orange Squeeze will now broadcast track and player metadata, allowing consumption of track and player metadata by third-party apps.
- New track download backend that works around some issues with the previous one based on the Android download manager.

Fast browsing available immediately with no waiting for scans or database synchronization. Full search capabilities coupled with an intuitive and seamless interface make listening to music on your Squeezeboxen fun and convenient. Advanced caching heuristics make for a smooth, seamless experience.

Fully integrated and tested with Pandora, Mog, and other online services available on your Squeezebox.

Other features:
- Can automatically mute players when a phone call is received, and optionally unmute them after you hang up.
- Use your phone's volume keys to control your player volume.
- Helpful user interface that introduces you to advanced features progressively.
- Drag and drop playlist and menu management for easy customization
- Works with password-protected servers.
- Synchronization, player sleep, and alarm support
- Clean, seamless integration with SqueezePlayer. Note that this requires the separate purchase of the SqueezePlayer app.

A huge thank you to everyone who helped test this release via Orange Squeeze Preview!

A brief discussion of some of the permissions Orange Squeeze requires:

The permission "READ PHONE STATUS AND IDENTITY" is used strictly to detect when calls are made or received so that automatic player muting will work.

The permission "MODIFY OR DELETE THE CONTENTS OF YOUR USB STORAGE MODIFY OR DELETE THE CONTENTS OF YOUR SD CARD" allows the app to download tracks to your external storage and also place the application's artwork cache on the external storage.

The permission "FULL NETWORK ACCESS" allows the app to connect to either or your local Logitech Media Server installation.

Tested in-house on the original Google Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 5, and Nexus 7 (2012). Supported on all Android devices running 2.2 and higher.

    Tried for 10 minutes to log on and then it worked. The next day tried for an hour and it would not connect.
    Useless with no support.

    This app works well and looks great on my phone and tablet. It makes having your own squeeze server even more enjoyable!

    by Steven Ceuppens on 27/08/2014 does one access the settings menu when the phone doesn't have a physical button to do so, as on the Acer Liquid E3?

    This is great for controlling my squeezebox touch. I also use it to controll my Hifiberry DAC/Digi players and PI-DAC, you can use it sync or group players. It's great for browsing bbc-iplayer, Deezer and Qobuz streaming services too. You can even control the server and do maintenance such as rescan and rebuild your music database. I use this app on my Nexus 7 and LG G2.
