Yep for one click play.
Just have the play button next to song titles. And make the album/playlist automatically continue from that point on. If I want to make a queue or radio I make one.
I don’t have time to read all the replies, but I think it is usually not very clever to ‘try to teach people do things in a new way’ especially if the earlier way was not broken in the first place.
Even e-book are flipped page by page. Records, tapes, cd’s, ipods, digital music players have always continued from the song you have chosen as default. And with cd and digital players you have had an OPTION to program a list of different order, queue, playlist, whatnot.
Feels like otherwise pretty nice Roon think they’ve created something ‘new’ by making that option not an option for linear play, but as a default… and the linear play as an option that needs tinkering and selections/many click etc.
There was a company that thought they would ‘teach’ people the ‘right and better’ way to use their devices no matter how un-intuitive their ‘right way’ was.
They were global leader in their game, until a competition created a product with an intuitive interface and they were out of business within years. The first company being Nokia and the intuitive product, you guessed it Apple’s iPhone.
But as everybody want’s to be new Steve Jobs and Apple and ‘revolutionalize’ something, don’t do that just for the sake of being able to say you ‘revolutionalized something’ if there is nothing to revolutionize, just do a great, solid, well designed and intuitive product.
Not all revolutions are good ones and get traction. Only the ones that actually make people’s life better and easier. And company cannot choose which does and force its vision to people. Even Apple has faced that with some of their products…
