External Artwork not always showing

I have one folder per album, each containing a cover.jpg. When I add an album to Vox on iOS via iTunes' app document browser, sometimes the cover.jpg artwork isn't picked up by the app.

If I delete the album from the app, and add it back it usually shows the artwork. Unfortunately this takes quite some time since my lossless albums are usually 500Mb and the transfer doesn't go any faster than 1.5Mb/s (because of USB).

Appart from this I love the app. Been using Vox for a long time now on both my mac and my iPhone.
Thanks for the great products!

    In my previous post I meant to say MB where I said Mb.

    Also while experimenting to find a way to reproduce, I found that if I put an album without a cover, Vox downloads one.
    Could you add a preference to prevent this behavior?

    Hey there,
    Thanks for using our app!
    The best way of doing this - just embed artwork into id3 tags.
    Or create separate folders for each album+artwork and transfer them via iTunes file sharing.

    This is exactly what I'm doing, but sometimes its not being used.
    I don't want to embed the artwork because it takes up way more space.
