Version 1.2.3
Review by rvncto

Coming to this app’s defense. It works fine for me. - I have a 2013 mbp. With the latest Yosemite. and iTunes 12.0.1 i see this thing has a lot of 2 and 1 star reviews. And only one review for the latest version. And that review is a bad one. However the description of the functionality fits exactly what i wanted to a tee, that I went ahead and risked the 1.99$ anyway. What i wanted was an addition of functionality to iTunes… not a seperate app. It works exactly as i expected. Basically it allows me to listen to podcasts (which i have downloaded… not streaming) at 1.5 - 2x speed. It is not a seperate app. Its just added functionality to Itunes in an extra playback speed. It is an icon that sits in the task bar (up top) and has a selection of speeds. Thats it. easy peasy. I don’t notice any of the echoing or reverb other people have noted in reviews of earlier versions

Version 1.1.2
Review by A pro mac User

Extremely Dissatisfied - I tried to use this app to listen to chaptiers of the Bible at about 1.3X (the reader I have reads slowly.) It would skip up to the last 30 seconds on some tracks and repeat the last 3 seconds or so on others. I e-mailed the developer and they responded by asking me to send them some mp3s to test them out. They have not responded or fixed it. With so many complaints in the reviews and the 3, 2 and 1 start feedback prevailing I think Apple should yank this from the store until the developers can get it right. Hope this keeps someone else from wasting $2.99 plus tax USD.
