Best Option for a Mini-Spotify Player on the App Store - I’ve always been the type to have an iTunes Mini Player pinned to my desktop, so when I made the switch to Spotify, I went on the search for a nice mini-player. I’ve tried all the ones available on the App Store (Simplify, MiniPlay, etc.) and this is by far the best one available. Super clean design, minimalistic, no unnecessary doc apps or menubar apps. Simplicity at its finest. I’ll have this on my desktop for as long as it is compatible with OSX!

Great! - I like Silicio player which I use with Spotify. Of course could add functionality like save to a playlist, or a volume slider, or a widget side slider, but it does the job already so well - thanks!

Version 2.9
Review by Mindsparks

Exactly what I was looking for. - Needed an app that simply displayed only album art, could lock in position, and allow for a quick way to change the track. It would be awesome if the album art could also have another preview mode that would spin the album art like a vinyl turntable. Maybe that’s what Disc does, but it doesn’t seem to work for me, it only displays the “Square” version. Still 5/5 in my book though!

Simply Perfect - Works how it says with no bumps or hiccups. Silicio should be a standard application in every Mac!

Version 2.9
Review by crysthizzle

Good, but need easy keyboard compatibility - Instead of having to create a shortcut to press play or next on a song, I would actually like to be able to use my own play/pause and next buttons at the top of my keyboard at just one click like I usually was able to in the past. Would love to see that changed, instead of having to swipe over to my notifications and click next just to skip to the next song.

Version 2.9
Review by kylejohnsonkj

Love it! - I use this app all the time when I listen to music, without even thinking about it. It’s just a natural addition to my music. Great job! Would still love the ability to pick any size for the album art (up to a reasonable limit) through a corner drag gesture. Otherwise, I see no other improvements!
