New versions of Helium Streamer and Helium Remote for Windows Phone available
We are proud to present new versions of Helium Streamer and Helium Remote for Windows Phone.
We have added two new browsing views to the Streamer, one which will appear when you click an artist from a artist list and show specific details about the artist such as picture, rating a button which will show/allow you to set if the artist is a favourite or not.
Below this information an album list with the artists discography (if any) will be shown and below that a list with all the albums that artist appears on wii be shown.
There are quick links to play and enqueue the tracks from a specific album available.
The bottom toolbar will come with two commands which will let you see all tracks in the form of a tracklist from the artist and the other will show a artist list of similar artists.
If you navigate to a specific album from a album list, another new view is available - the album details view.
Just as for the artist details view, a information bar with the album picture, rating a button to see/set if the album is a favourite or not will be shown.
Below that information bar a list with all tracks from the album will be shown, grouped by CD if available.
The artist and album lists are also using larger images to give a nicer visual presentation for the end-user.
The above improvements are implemented both in Helium Streamer and Helium Remote.
For Helium Streamer, some extra improvements has also been implemented:
When you are in the search page, you can now configure which exact field you would like to perform the search for, or of course all fields as before if perfered.
The now playing screen comes with a new topbar with quick links for:
- Favourite status of the currently playing track. By clicking this icon you can quickly toggle the status.
- Possibility to see and set rating for the currently playing track.
- An icon which allows you to see the lyrics for the currently playing track. (if available)
- An icon which allows you to see the subtracks for the currently playing track. (if available)
- An icon which allows you to browse similar artists for the artist currently beeing played.
Apart from the above changes we have also improved the enqueue handling, implemented various fixes and minor corrections as well as corrections to the languages.
