Quote from: Papy Oli on March 09, 2023, 12:20:56 PMbut...but...they have complete and accurate metadata ! ...and specially commissioned composer portraits... Idagio has some annoying flaws on the android phone app but the PC app and their web player work fine for me. Idagio stays for me too.
Quote from: Madiel on March 09, 2023, 03:46:53 PMOkay, so I just downloaded the Presto Music app, and one thing immediately impressed me.It knew about my account with the store from my email address, and once I signed into my account it knows all of the albums that I've purchased on CD from the store.I did kind of already know this might be the case, and I don't necessarily need easy access to these CD purchases in the app. But gee it was nice to see how smoothly this happened.Where the app is immediately falling down, though, is in the ability to play a work rather than album. If you browse recordings of a work on Idagio, then what you will play is the particular work - you have to deliberately move to the album to play the whole album. But Presto is not doing this. It will show me a list of albums with recordings of Beethoven's 3rd piano sonata, but pressing play will begin the album at the beginning, and predictably the result is the 1st piano sonata.

Quote from: Madiel on March 09, 2023, 11:16:09 PMI get the same on a free account, on albums other than the ones I've purchased. I hadn't initially noticed because I was only dabbling.If you've signed up for the 30 day free trial of a "proper" account then I expect this shouldn't happen. But if you're literally on a free account then maybe this is all you get.
Quote from: Brian on March 29, 2023, 04:49:05 AMGiven the arrival of this feature, I don't know that I see a reason to keep purchasing download files...?
Quote from: Brian on March 29, 2023, 04:49:05 AMQobuz has a feature where you can download albums that you have not purchased to your phone for mobile playing away from wifi. For example, I download jazz albums for road trips.Given the arrival of this feature, I don't know that I see a reason to keep purchasing download files...?
