Could be great, but still okay - I have a regular poker game with my buddies, and I was looking for a way to let everyone pick some songs to listen to while we played. I came across this app and gave it a shot. After I installed it I tried to access my library via my iPhone - no luck. I could access the library on my local machine, but not on any other device on the network. I went to their help site, but the informaiton there was lacking so I reached out to their tech support. After a few emails, we figured out the problem - was going to localhost:7777 on my other devices, rather than going to the IP address of my computer. Once I typed in the inetwork IP for my iMac and then went to port 7777 (192.168.x.xx:7777) I could access my tunes. The interface is simple and effective. The only issue I have is that my large library (over 30,000 tracks) crashes the web app when someone wants to browse albus or artists. If they just relegate themselves to the generic search field (like just typing in ‘New Order’, ‘Rolling Stones’, etc.), then the app works fine. When it locked up, I would just force quit it on my iMac and restart it. The playlist kept going, even with a restart, and everyone’s choices were still there. Annoying, but if you can convince your guests to just use the search field, that helps. The host can delete songs on the playlist, but I couldn’t get the shuffle option to work for some reason. I’d prefer that, but again, not a deal breaker. Also, an option to move songs on the playlist would be helpful. All in all, not a bad program (even has the potential to be great), but there is definitely room for improvement. For $5 it’s nearly worth it, but $2-3 would be more reasonable until they fix the issues mentioned.
Fell Short, but keep trying then come back with it. - Program emmediatly failed and failed to open. Contacted support, they sent a different version, failed to open many more times. When finally opened, set all setting and went to web. Was not able to log in as guest, but did so as user. Now playing any kind of music, well this is a joke all it ever does is put the songs in a que but still can't play then program becomes un-responsive "red ball". Never with this computer. 10.6.8 The look of it is really plain, no color just grey and white, ugly fonts and sure has there logo everywhere. P.S. Also its opens itunes and has to stay runnig. Could be good, but whoever went cheap with no sence of design, graphic nor gooey.... To bad.
