Ratings and Reviews
Mostly working as described
The two things that I can see that don’t work are the link in the “About” which leads to the app that is supposed to allow you to disable the play, etc. buttons on the keyboard from accessint iTunes. This can be done otherwise with a launchctp command, but that leads me to the second thing that doesn’t work as advertised, which is the play, etc. buttons controlling gTunes.
Other that those two problems I like the app. It looks almost identical to the web app, but I can have it outside my browser. I’m hoping that I can soon give it five stars and update my review. :)
I love the idea but it has a few gltiches.
I love the idea of the mini player and having it in my toolbar. The problem is the toolbar buttons don’t work at all for me. Play/pause, skip, previous, like/dislike. Also it shows the Artist / Albumn not the song name. This a bummer for me because this was the main draw to the application for me. Overall still a good app though, if the toolbar functionality was fixed it would be an easy 5 start.
This doesn’t work as intended. White box appears slightly to the ight of the left side of the application, only after you start trying to play the music that doesn’t even play, after you already installed Adobe Flash Player.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
