Today, I'm happy to present you the new Android App SqueezeCommander!
SqueezeCommander is a new Android Remote Control app for your Logitech SqueezeBoxes.
I've tried all available SqueezeBox apps on the Android market, but I was not really happy with them.
So, I've finally decided to write my own! :-) SqueezeCommander is now available on Android Market.Direct Link for your mobile
Furthermore, it is also available on SlideME.org

* Active development=== Automatical Server Discovery ===
When you start SqueezeCommander it searches for SqueezeBoxServers in your local network and automatically establishes a connection to the first available server.
If the auto-discovery fails, you can of course also enter a server manually.
Support for password protected SqueezeBoxServers
SqueezCommander supports password protected SqueezeBoxServers to improve security.=== Now Playing screen with Artwork ===
If you are connected to a Server and a Player, you will be redirected to the Now Playing screen. This screen is the main view of SqueezeCommander. It shows informations about the current song and the artwork if available.=== Fast incremental library browse ===
SqueezeCommander is created with large music libraries in mind. It uses a fast incremental library search, that should not slow down or block the User Interface while browsing your library.
Furthermore, all library lists show a “FastScroll” area on the right to scroll very fast through long lists (instead of “flinging” the screen many, many times).=== Fast library search ===
You can search your library by Artist, by Album, by Track and so on. For large Libraries, that would be hard work for your little mobile, therefore SqueezeCommander delegates this task to the SqueezeBoxServer for a pretty fast library search.=== Music download to SD card ===
Never leave your home without music!
You can now select single tracks, whole albums or even whole artists and download them to your mobile’s SD card. After the download, they’ll show up in your favorite Android music player app.=== Internet radio browse ===
You can browse through all radio stations around the world picked by the SqueezBox staff.
Of course, you can also enter a custom Radio URL.=== Multi-Player and Multi-Server support ===
SqueezCommander supports multiple player and multiple servers.
The servers can be arranged in Sync Groups to play the same songs. You can switch a player (or a complete Sync Group) to another server or to MySqueezeBox.com.=== MySqueezeBox.com support ===
You can switch your players to MySqueezeBox.com and control them independently from your local SqueezeBoxServer. So you don’t need to have your Server powered up 24/7 but you can still listen to your favourite Internet Radio.=== SqueezeBox Apps support ===
SqueezeCommander now also support the new SqueezeBox Apps. You can e.g. browse Music on Last.fm, Internet radio on Deezer or photos on Flickr.=== Auto mute on calls ===
SqueezeCommander can automatically lower the volume of your SqueezeBox when you receive an incoming call.=== Active development ===
This is a very active project, so if you’ve found a bug or want to make a request for enhancement, please open a ticket in our Bug Tracker.

. I’ve purchased several of them over the last years, and in my opinion, they are the perfect Music Server solution!
The server is written in Perl and available under an OpenSource license.
