Like it the way it is !


It could use a little polishing, but is very capable. I'm glad the streaming media app is separate. It won't be for the typical i-crowd, and it's not a light-show, so don't expect it to be. It's a concise Bluetooth-enabled (now "AirPlay"?) player that couples well with a B-tooth receiver that bridges flash memory digital music storage with your audiophile equipment. It also lends itself to album playing more than one-song "beats", although a playlist is available. Very surprised to see it available, and very pleased to get away from i-Want your credit card. A+ for simplicity, A- for app implementation.

The Best Audio Player


I've used this app for many years. I feel it's the best and most convenient audio player in the App Store. Not only is it simple to use, it has the look of the McIntosh Meters when you are using it. Just like the equipment they make, it's awesome to look at!

Garbage App & Prehistoric Company left in the past

Unfortunately, McIntosh rested on its laurels, and decided they were too good to transition from outdated, inferior, overpriced products to modern, superior, COMPATIBLE products. The days of selling your overpriced, underwhelming, "brand name" products at places like tweeter, which filed for chapter 11 are over. You will suffer the same fate, except with virtually no sales. BTW, a 2 year old could make a better app than this. Enjoy your retirement and have fun listening to the products no one ever bought, if they ever work.
