Great, But Serious Airplay Problems

This app is a great easy way to use Pandora without opening a web broswer, However, it has serious issues with Airplay. It takes multiple attempts of connecting and disconnecting from Airplay to get Musicbox to actually play through the speakers. Because of this sometimes I just give up and close the app. Musicbox shows the latest update to be well over a year ago. It has great potential but needs some fixes (and an UI update would also be good).

stops after playing 2 or 3 songs

Not sure how to get this to play consistently. This is clearly not a intuitive application. Do you have to be a computer programmer or app specialist in order to listen to music with this Pandora music box program. I find it incredibly annoying that I purchased something, and now cannot use it.

no longer works. Please fix!

this was a great app that no longer works. It only plays one song before stopping. Then you have to manually switch channels and it will play 1 more. Sooooo annoying and now rendered useless. I wonder if the dev is reading these comments? Seems like an easy fix.
