While Funkwhale has supported Subsonic clients for a few releases now, one developer has decided to invest time in building a beautiful mobile app specific for Funkwhale users. Antoine Popineau, known by his developer handle as apognu, has been hard at work developing Otter. In his own words:
This project started out because I listen to music primarily on the go, and I was accustomed to have native players for my previous music services.
The development was initially announced on Funkwhale’s governance platform, and a handful of testers and developers have provided feedback to help further the client’s development.
These are still early days for the app, and there’s a handful of minor bugs in the current release. When I tested it, I noticed that all tracks from a given collection would be added to the player when I selected one of them. That said, the app is surprisingly stable and well-designed, and works really well with Funkwhale.
One final note: you might want to make sure that your server version is higher than Funkwhale 0.19.0. I had troubles with logging in until I updated to the latest stable release.
