Exactly what I was looking for

The “Today” widget is really the best part of this app, because it allows control of iTunes from the Today section of the Mac sidebar. And while Apple’s widget allows for some control as well, this widget adds volume control. Exactly what I hoped to find. I’d have paid as much as $2.99 for this functionality, but the app and widget are free. The dark mode is totally worth an in-app purchase too, by the way.

Thanks to this developer for a great app.

It's OK, but barebones

Silicio is still the gold standard of these apps, but it really bugs me that that app doesn't let you view artwork and song title at the same time. This one does that, so kudos on that. However, it's a huge non-resizable player. Dev, please take a look at Silicio and adopt as much as possible from that app, such as preference to hide pointless Dock icon and a slider for album size.

This one also lacks keyboard shortcuts to hide/show player or quickly toggle whether it's on top. 3 stars because it has a lot of improvements possible, but core feature works.

Delivers exactly what is promised

I love it. It works exactly as advertised. The only request I would make is, is it possible to have a super compact mode which is mostly horizontal and can be expanded/shrunk horizontally? I’m thinking, a scrolling area for song info and then Previous, Pause & Next controls. I have a lot of wasted space next to my Dock and would be great to have this always on top there.
