Most Helpful Reviews
Perfect app in a flawed field - I cannot tell you how many music apps I have downloaded to try to accomplish what Simplify does all in one app. This one really works. It provides album art (and the art really works), notifications, a desktop player, a menu bar player, and various themes and even a preference pane that makes the keyboard shortcuts work. All of these feature work in El Capitan. It is worth every penny.
Piece of crap - $4.99, really? It doesn't work, don't waste your money.
More Reviews for Current Version
Needs a “launch at login option" - Then you’d get five stars
Could Get Five Stars... - I gave it 4 only because the CPU usage when idle is higher than it should be. It’s a useful app and when they update it, gives you extra control and creature comforts for all your audio streaming needs.
