Review by The Tourer

Decent functionality, so-so UI and outrageous “Rate Me" notifications - The app itself does what it says pretty decently, although not allowing new lines is annoying and makes for cluttered Facebook posts. Another feature I wish this had was searching for matching Soundcloud or YouTube links to post with the track in lieu of iTunes Store links, seeing as very few tracks in my library originated from there. Really, though, I was most annoyed by this application CONSTANTLY begging for an App Store rating, even opening itself in order to prompt me for it (laughably, the button to leave a rating doesn’t even work). This application requests a rating more often than I get emails: I’ve gotten several already notifications about it today and the only reason I am posting this review is in a desperate attempt to get the app to shut up. If it doesn’t, I’ll be uninstalling it immediately and writing my own scripts to handle what this app does more to my own liking. You begged and begged for a store rating, and here it is: two stars, for bothering me more often than I actually use the app. EDIT: I was just notified again. Rating dropped to 1 Star and uninstalled. Begging users for ratings on an app they PAID for will get you nowhere.

Review by SteveC13

Yosemite update please! - I love this app - it does all the right things just the right way. But for some reason the share (e.g. with twitter etc.) is broken in Yosemite. I tried uninstalling and re-installing but no help.
