It appears that the update of Play It still crashes at some people when they go to the now playing screen. If you delete Play It from your device and reinstall it, the app should work correctly. I'm sorry for this problem and a new update to fix this bug is coming soon.
Best music app for your car
I've tried both LeechTunes and TuneBooth, this one is better by far. It's cleaner and easier to work in the car. I wish you could customize the gestures a little, although I'm not sure that I would change them.
The new update works great in iOS6 and iPhone 5. I've found that if you're having problems with it force closing, then delete it and download it again. This happened to both mine and my girlfriend's. Don't think that's an app problem.
My only grip is that the screen doesn't always switch to the next song (though the music does). This seems to only happen on the first track. Once you use a gesture it'll work right again. I don't usually notice until I look down to change the song anyway. Small bug to fix.
Beautiful app, but not quite a replacement.
The one thing it's really lacking is the alphabet sidebar, that lets you jump to songs starting with a particular letter.
It would really improve functionality, and if we could see that feature, this would definitely be sitting in my dock in the stock music app's place.
Get it. Could be better
Nice app, very well thought out but has a few issues. I still can't scroll left when a song is playing to go to the previous track. Keeps restarting the current one. Album art has never worked. Besides that it's pretty good and I would highly recommend it.
Latest update breaks the app. Can't play anything, crashes on trying to play a song, playlist and so on. Fix it.
