Under 'Now Playing' in Settings you need to switch 'Show Volume Buttons' to On.

I'm struggling to find the Volume slider which was an essential feature of Bubble DS - hope it's not gone with the upgrade to BubbleDS Next!?

It' not a slider anymore but + and - volume buttons displayed on the Now Playing screen if Settings > Now Playing > Show volume button is set to "on" (which is the default on tablets). By default it increases/decreases volume by +1/-1 step, which can be changed in Settings > Control > Volume step.

That's a real shame as I really liked the Volume slider in Bubble DS. The + and - buttons seem clunky and a bit of a retrograde step but this is my only niggle.

Can I start a campaign to have it reinstated or where do I post my RFC?

Bubble DS Next is a very nice upgrade with an intuative user interface and much improved rendering of album art - Briain should be pleased?

RE: Announcing BubbleDS Next
Hi bubbleguuum,

Nice app. My compliments for it.

Few remarks and requests:
- My preference would be that Library and Radio switch places. Meaning, Library comes after Playlist and Radio after Library.
Is there a way to change this in preferences?

- In Settings I have disabled the Look and Feel option for 'album art derived colors'.
This seems not to work in the Library, where the upper part of the screen is changing color depending on the album art shown.

- In Settings it is possible in Library to enable or disable the option to show tracknumbers.
This enables or disables showing tracknumbers in all screens (Now Playing, Playlist, Library).
My preference, I want to see tracknumbers in Library and in Playlist, but not in Now Playing.

- In the app the 'powerbutton' does not change, so I can not see whether the DS is ON or OFF.

Thanks.

Looking nice...
But I can't seem to find the "see next track" in the free version.
Is that available in the full version?

Hello! Big Grin

It sounds absolutely fabulous, but very sadly, I've nothing to run it on. I'll really look forward to someone visiting (who owns an Android tablet) such that I can see all the great work that you've done. I'll let my Linn dealer know, as he has one of these big screen Samsung phones. In fact, he's due to visit in the next day or so (to return my emergency plumbing kit; he found an existing floorboard screw through a Hep2O pipe during in installation; he unscrewed the floorboard and a model of The Jet d'Eau Geneva fountain appeared in the middle of the customers lounge) do we can try it out when he gets here.

Ah, the Jet d'Eau in Geneva - haven't been for a while but brings back many happy memories, unfortunately not for the customer in question!

Playing with BubbleDS Next last night and found more things to tick and try out - very good indeed (don't mention the Volume slider!)

RE: Announcing BubbleDS Next
It looks different but BubbleDS is working perfect, why change?
It would be nice if BubbleDS users get it for free. It will only cost you again money.
