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!

Simple. Perfect.

I’ve always wished iTunes had the option for a mini player AND the full app to be shown at the same time. Silico took this idea and beautified it. I’m a giant music lover, so having controls, album art, and sharing options always on the desktop with very little intrustion is, while not a neccisity, a huge delight.

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.
