Love this app! Lets me create custom keyboard shortcuts to play/pause/skip tracks


I don’t understand all the negative reviews. I’ve been using this app for years and love it! I rarely use the menus to play/pause/skip tracks though. Instead, and this is way easier, I created my own custom keyboard shortcuts, making it so I don’t have to keep going back to iTunes or even Skip Tunes menus.

To create custom keyboard shortcuts, click the Skip Tunes icon at the top of your screen, click the gear icon at the bottom-right of the Skip Tunes window, select Preferences. Then, click the “Shortcuts” tab at the top of the Preferences window. From there, create your own shortcuts. For Pause/Play Track I use Command-UpArrow; for Next Track I use Command-RightArrow; and for Previous Track I use Command-LeftArrow.

Works like a charm! Well worth $2.99!

Great app only issue is seek/tracking bar


LOVE this application, my only problem with it is that my seek/tracking bar will skip to next song instead of moving further along the current track. Would give 5 stars if this is ever fixed! Thanks for a great product!

Developer Response

Thanks for the feedback. We are working on a fix for the scrubber! Stay tuned over here:

Crashes constantly


Never stays running for long. Is constantly crashed and needs to be relaunched. Seems to crash without internet access as well, so it doesn’t work offline.

Developer Response

This crashing issue has been fixed in the latest release. Cheers!
