Since I have more free time than usual at the moment, I developed a new extension and Android app: it’roXs!
What is it about?
The main part is an Android app and adds some features to the Roon experience, which I missed since I am using Roon. Main features are (for now, there will be more):
- Adds a media style notification for a Roon output to the status bar and lock screen
- Shows current title meta data on the lock screen
- Controls the volume of a Roon output with the volume hardware buttons of your device (if the volume of the selected output can be controlled through Roon, of course)
- Use your smartwatch for basic control of a Roon output
- Sleep Timer
The app is in an early state, but it is already available (as Early Access) in the Play Store:
Google Play Store: it’roXs!
There will be more features, I already have some in mind, but I think now is a good time to start letting you use and test the app
Second part is a Roon extension you have to install first. It provides a server the app needs to communicate with Roon. You can find this extension and install instructions on GitHub:
Hope you like it, any feedback is welocme. Have fun!
