What's New in Version 1.1.3
Bug and stability fixes.
Good idea. Poor execution.
This app is a wonderful idea. When it works it follows the program exquisitely. It was enjoyable. But it would freeze many times and had to restart it. It took away from the music. I would have been better off just listening than being distracted by it. It would also be nice to have the option to turn off the auto dim feature as it is distracting.
