Miniplayer cannot install onto Notification

There is a problem of adding this miniplayer as a widget into the notification center. Please fix this issue.

Other than that, It works great.

Pretty Nice

This is a nice alternative to the iTunes widget. As it says “on the box”, it uses much less space to display the controls than it’s offical counterpart, which is greatly appreciated on my 13” MacBook Pro. In that veign though, they could go a little further: when iTunes is not running, I’d suggest hiding the artwork and track name placeholders and collapsing the height as much as possible. Otherwise, it works swell. Thanks to the developers!

Very useful widget

Clean and small. Using much less space in NC.

Please add ability to love/dislike songs.
Usually I’m listening for radio stations provided by Apple and this like functionality will be very useful.
