Ratings and Reviews
Not usable in present state
I was excited to use this to sync up with my computer and be able to rate songs from my phone and listen to flac files. However, I regret to inform that the app is very limited in format support. It seems only to successfully stream MP3. Even my AAC file won't play.
The linking up with helium music manager does work. Ratings do sync back and forth, but what is the point when most formats are unplayable.
It is also a very clunky interface. Hard to tell what is downloaded and what is streamed.
Last but not least, as near as I can tell there is no way to shuffle a playlist. You are stuck using clunky music queue feature.
In short the app is unusable which sadly means that the entire helium music manager is unusable for me since good mobile support is essential.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
