Roon 1.8 is not a big hit


  • Roon Remote 1.8 crashes on iPadOS when trying to change settings when the operating system language is not English.

Features missing for years:

  • Still no support for AirPlay 2 devices (e.g. stereo pair of Apple HomePods)
  • Automatic switching from light to dark theme depending on the settings of the operating system (macOS)

Better than in version 1.7:

  • Portrait mode of user interface on iPad mini

Worse than in version 1.7:

  • No role-based display of album credits. At least this should be selectable.
  • Missing horizontal scrolling of artists on wide-screen displays.
  • The new user interface looks fresh, but it’s too spacious and text is harder to read, at least on macOS. It would be better if Roon were more oriented towards the user interface of the operating system. Too many different application designs are bad for the ergonomics of the overall system.
