Can't choose where iTunes starts or what is played next


This widget can control volume, pause/play, fast forward, and rewind only. It starts playing wherever iTunes e.g. has been left idle, or already started. IMO this limits its utility. Should be great for a situation where you have queued up content or have a playlist ready to go or running. But if you want to change the song,album, playlist etc you will need to dive deeper into your phone to use Remote, or use the Mac it's paired with to choose what you are listening to.
Great for volume adjustment or starting stopping content but can't choose content or what you want to listen to next.

Now useless on older hardware


Until the latest updates, it was working perfectly on my 4S under 8.3. Upgrading the OS on the 4S renders it virtually useless. I understand the need to support newer hardware and software, it's just very unfortunate the decision was made to phase out the existing equipment and software that worked just fine. And yes, I happen to have a newer phone with the newest shiny iOS. I just don't believe in throwing out a piece of technology because it's old.

Shuffle/repeat buttons?


It's a great and necessary handy app. (Much more useful and quicker than Apple's "Remote App.")
You could also add an option to display album artwork, or shuffle/repeat buttons. 👌
