Release Notes:

As requested by one-star reviews, this update includes some minor user interface improvements to make artwork bigger.

However, putting one star is not the best way to request improvements or bugfixes. You can always shoot me an email with things that you don't like.

Great App - Thanks to the Developer for reaching out and applying/discussing feedback. With this new update, the previous issues seen are no longer of concern. As suggested by the developer emailing does work.

Version 1.4
Review by RoboWarriorSr

Why the small and distorted album art??? - The new update shrunk the album art to nearly ¼ the original size, might as well use the built in iTunes widget. In addition for some reason the developer decided to increase the size of the playback buttons by 50% which doesn’t make any sense on Mac computer with hardware media controls. Too bad the screenshots were not updated so now I’ll be trying to find a way to downgrade or download the older version off the web. Edit: Now the screenshots are uploaded, hopefully others that prefer larger album art read this review before updating. In addition, the album art viewer now squishes album art that isn’t a perfect square into one now showing distorted art. The previous update kept the album art ratio.

Great! - Didn’t have any problems before and with the update indicating the developer cares about one-star reviews, I had to create one to express my gratitude and appreciation for the developer’s responsiveness and work ethic. Thank you for this amazing app, please keep up the good work!

Version 1.4.1
Review by Grumpy CT

Exactly what I was looking for - The “Today” widget is really the best part of this app, because it allows control of iTunes from the Today section of the Mac sidebar. And while Apple’s widget allows for some control as well, this widget adds volume control. Exactly what I hoped to find. I’d have paid as much as $2.99 for this functionality, but the app and widget are free. The dark mode is totally worth an in-app purchase too, by the way. Thanks to this developer for a great app.

Almost perfect - I’ve been looking for better app to replace Simplify and this one is definity it. The only addition I would strongly request is for there to be a menu bar option (much like what Simplify offers). Great job on this app either way!

Just What I Needed - Pop this little guy over the corner to keep track of what I’m listening to. It’s great. I even got Dark Mode for free!
