I’m looking for an iOS app to play music from my Synology DS218+. I’ve been using Synology’s DS Audio app on iPhone and iPad for years, but it lacks features I want/need (gapless playback; “seek:” function for AAC and ALAC files), and it doesn’t appear that will ever change.
My iTunes library lives on the NAS. I still use iTunes on my desktop and laptop Macs for music playback, ripping CDs, creating playlists, etc.
My questions about Glider are:
Can it access iTunes playlists if they’re on a NAS instead of a computer?
Can it access a folder of m3u playlists on the NAS?
Can it connect to a NAS remotely (i.e., when I’m not on the LAN)? On your web site, it says “Step away from your local network and Glider becomes an exceptional offline music player with access to all of your local files.” I’m not sure what that means.
