Memory Issues?

It’s a solid app, but I noticed something troubling last week. Simplify was hogging up a ludicrous 3.5GB of memory. Since upon restart the app consumes only 54MB of memory (and I had been running the app for a long period of time prior to restart), I think there’s a memory leak somewhere. This needs to be addressed by the developers; otherwise, I have to babysit it and make sure to restart it when it starts hogging resources again. I hope this gets resolved soon.

Update: over the course of a few hours, its memory usage has risen from 54MB -> 93MB. There’s definitely a serious memory leak at play. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Could Get Five Stars...

I gave it 4 only because the CPU usage when idle is higher than it should be. It’s a useful app and when they update it, gives you extra control and creature comforts for all your audio streaming needs.

Needs a “launch at login option"

Then you’d get five stars
