Ratings and Reviews

works well, improvements could be made


it would be nice if the iPod could be locked and the screen off and the app still running. Right now I have to leave my iPod unlocked and the screen on, which drains batteries unnecessarily. I want to be able to control which song is playing on my iPod through my iPod as well as through my macbook. If i'm near my iPod and not my mac, I don't want to have to walk back to my macbook to change the song for the same reason as I bought this app in the first place. The aesthetics of the app could be greatly improved. The "now playing" screen showing the album art of the song playing needs work. The controls at the bottom should all be the same size and centered. It would be nice to be able to see the progress of the song playing and know how much is left etc. It's an easy app to use and works well though.
