nice App, but falls short...

NIce app, but needs to have keypad short cuts.... and only shows first 4 words in a song!
Panel can't be widened or adapted! Wont show album cover...

I want to be able to flick to another song while working on other programmes by just hitting CNTRL and arrow.... without having to click onto a seperate control panel.
I have being nmore than happy using Gimmesome tune for last few years which does all the abovem but now seems to quit constantly... so am searching for something new.
Bit dissaponted...

This app seems to be ok for now, but I wish the developer would update it to all that it could be, for people who love to listen to music whiel the work.

Well worth the money!

Love the update and that i can change the colour to whatever i like :) and the rating idea is really cool..much faster than doing it from i-tunes.


VERY useful app, love how you can set it to open and close with iTunes, keep on the front, AND change the colour to suit your theme!
