Browse your music collection anywhere

This feature would allow you to browse your music library to check what albums you have anywhere you want, even if your server is turned off and you're outside your home. The use case is to enable checking what music you have already when purchasing music or showing a particular album and sharing links with your friends, for example. The applications here can be quite extensive. This would be based on syncing your music library database to our cloud server.

Great addition. I too have occasionally made the same mistake as David mentioned below.

I like browsing old as well as new CDs and have more than once bought a CD I already have because of a different cover. It would be useful to be able to download key metadata to provide a readily available and reviewable off-line listing of albums. This would also be useful for insurance purposes.

Hi David, what you mean is eventually being able to browse the music collection when you're offline or away from home correct?

Hi Nuno. Many thanks for responding.
In answer to your question, yes - I find it helpful to remind myself of the albums I have when offline or away from home when browsing or searching in record stores. I also think it potentially helpful, given the investment in albums, to be able to provide information for insurance purposes should the worst happen.
I have created a workaround but it has been and is a real palaver: 1/ Scan the music folders using 'ListFolder' on Mac 2/ Convert the resulting pdf to a spreadsheet 3/ Format and edit the spreadsheet to produce a workable list 4/ Keep the list up to date when I add new albums etc.
As this is to all intents and purposes producing a listing of the stored files by artist and album, I would hope this could be generated directly from the app/web-page.
I trust the above helps. Please let me know if I can help further. Kind regards. David Robson
