Nice app, well-maintained - This is a great app for it’s purpose. Little issues come up now and then, but get fixed fairly quickly, and the developer is highly responsive. Recommend.

Version 2.2.34
Review by Simba1PDX

Would be nice if…. - The layout of the window is nice and the controls are descent, but this would be a great app if the stations would play when selected. I’ve emailed their support a couple of times and have yet to get any help with trying to figure out why nothing will play. If this issue is resolved, I will re-rate the app, but until then, this will stay.

Version 2.2.34
Review by Tornadus

Still Great! - I've been using this app on and off for a few years, mostly due to me switching between Google Play and other music streaming services. After a year or so away from Play and coming back to use this app, it's just as good as (maybe better than) how I remember it.

Version 2.2.34
Review by WildN0rth

Yes! - Best $5 I’ve spent on an app in a long, long, time. When I switched from Spotify to Google Music my main concern was how to organize and play my music on my Mac without using a web browser. This app absolutely nails the functionality I was looking for.
