  2. Repeating reminders based on date

    To be able to setup reminders for birthdays, anniversaries, and other yearly repeating reminders. Looks like the only repeating reminders you can setup are by the day of the week.

  3. radio on/off within slideshow

    The new software with recents radio change from Remote:Menu in slideshow is GOOD. Thanks! Please sequence the play/pause on the remote to include radio on/off:

    mute/pause/unmute/play

    Can you make the volume available in slideshow?

    Save the radio station selection with the slideshow. Optionally, play the saved selection or override with timed station selections.

  5. Ability to choose which phone files are accessed by app.

    I would like to have an option to specifically select which folders the app can access on my phone so I can, for example, limit the apps access to my camera roll only. Right now it is needlessly accessing all the album art from my music files.

  7. Ability to move video files into web albums

    All submitted videos currently have to remain in the INBOX. Would really like to sort those into web albums just like the photos.

  8. New motion sensor setting - Auto off from inactivity without Auto on

    I would like to turn it on manually, enjoy it for the amount of time I am in front of it, and when I walk away for a specified amount of time it turns off. But later if I simply want to walk past, it doesn't turn on needlessly.

  9. combine pictures to one album

    By combining pictures to one album you can delete albums with only one to a few pictures. Why would you want to an album only showing one to a few pictures?

  10. Web Folder force sequence upload option.

    Currently the two bulk upload options strive for performance and will operate on multiple images (apparent multi thread). This logic defeats the user's sequence. Prevents displaying in user predicated sequence (like action shots).

    Would be nice to still have a bulk upload but have the UI load & display in original camera shot order.

  11. Picture Name should be shown when transition starts

    Picture Name should be shown when transition starts. Not when it ends.
    Some transitions are taking quite some time while still displaying previous picture name.

  12. better transitions between photos: fade to black for example

    I find the fade transition to be a bit jerky. Looks like a processor issue, but if not.. maybe it could be improved. Also, it would be nice to have a fade to black transition. I think this is also called dip to black.

  13. Loop GIF animations

    It would be nice to loop gif animations, instead of staying at the last frame. For instance if I load a 20-seconds animation and the frames changing time is 5 minutes, I see the last frame for too long and looping would be a better option.

  14. Google Photos

    I found a way to display Google Photos, however, there is a problem.
    According to your Knowledge Base Google Photos does not have an API for 3rd parties. You do support downloads from Google Drive and one of the folders in Google Drive is Google Photos, which not surprisingly contains all your Google Photos. In my PixStar account I connected to Google Drive and the Google Photos folder and syncing to my Frame started. Everything seemed OK until I noticed that pictures in Portrait mode were being displayed in Landscape mode instead. I downloaded one of the pictures that was…

  15. new import site- tiny beans

    new import site- tiny beans

    Please get in contact with the site TinyBeans.com. We use that site for our son's pictures because we are not comfortable using social media. If we could connect to this frame at the same time, we could set up frames for our family members as well, it would be amazing!

  16. Ability to select local folder slideshow from website

    I see how I am able to select a slideshow to display all pictures (including local, web albums, etc) or only a certain web album. However, I cannot see a means of selecting to display only pictures from the inbox or another local folder from the website. As someone who is managing a frame for his parents who live in another country, this would be useful, for example, for displaying birthday or other greetings and ensuring they are noticed by the recipients.

    If I haven't just overlooked this, I think it would be a very useful addition without a great…

  18. SAMBA Client

    The frame already has a SAMBA server, so why not enable the SAMBA client so it could connect to a shared folder on a NAS drive to pull photos from. NAS and home storage is very popular (the main reason I purchased Pix-Star over Nixplay was DLNA support)

  19. add backup function to web interface.

    I have my pixstar setup perfectly. All folders make sense and all photos came from lots of different places. Now i want an exact archive to save my work for all time. Please add a function to the website that will create a zip file and compress all content with all folders and let me download that zip file to my computer for posterity.

    Please and thanks.

    Your products and service make it smooth and painless to create wonderful works.of art that literally change the quality of peoples lives. Please help us easily preserve that for future reference.
