Version 2.1
Review by Joe Joe Dogface a boo boo

Really Enjoy this app and the latest release - This is simple app that does a great job taking care of a few important features that I need when I'm working on my mac - specifically - it allows me to pause my sonos stream when the phone rings and integrates in with the now playing so I can see what song is on if I'm listening to a random playlist and don't know all the songs listed. I've been very impressed as the developer is adding new features so my initial investment just seems to get better and better. Well worth the current price.

Lousy - Doesn’t pick up my Sonos speakers although my iPhone picks them up with no problem.

Exactly what I was looking for - I wanted a super-simple Sonos controller that's always one-click away and has global keyboard shortcuts. With this app, I'm able to re-map my keyboard's (pretty useless) Pg Up and Pg Dn keys to control my Sonos speakers' volume. Perfect!

Better than the Sonos app! - Relieves me of the need to awkwardly silence the music from my iPhone when I'm working from my Mac. Nice job.

Version 3.0.2
Review by kevindaniel

It doesn't work. - All it does is get the names of your devices but it can't actually play your computer's audio on them. It's useless. Unless you need to see a list of your devices that you also can't do anything with.
