"Dire, wrong way! Do NOT update!!!"

February 20, 2014  |  By maggeee

 |  Version: VOX 2.0

Pros

plays FLAC files still

Cons

good design replaced with bad
no album artwork box
buttons moved
incomprehensible buttons
items hidden or gone
increased footprint (in screen space & resource intensity)
Buggy
crashes
cpu/resource heavy

Summary

Dire, DO NOT UPDATE!!! Thank God I had the old version in backup. I don't know if this is a result of a buyout by competition or similar schema, but the new version is misery incarnate in comparison with the previous. Initially, I noticed the album cover-art picture has gone (geez!) and then balked at the cheap, webby-addy-look and almost aggressive new graphic design that destroys the neat, 'just-right' and uncomplicated design (being minimal yet retaining a friendly character) that had been developed through past versions up until the previous.

Now it is also slower, buggy and crashing. I primarily started using Vox as a 'light-weight' alternative player and to play FLAC files, so if they make it as CPU intensive and flappy as the others I simply will not continue to use it.

Doh!
