More support and tips – including enhanced troubleshooting
Improved responsiveness of transport controls (iOS only; Android to follow)

This update is part of a detailed review of the Naim App, first introduced in 2010; further developments and additional functionality will be ongoing.

For the tech-heads out there: Naim no longer just rely on the industry standard UPnP methodology; they have also added mDNS (Bonjour) and direct connection techniques to the process. This gives a better platform to develop even stronger App experiences as products, technologies and devices evolve.
