Ratings and Reviews
Can't choose where iTunes starts or what is played next
This widget can control volume, pause/play, fast forward, and rewind only. It starts playing wherever iTunes e.g. has been left idle, or already started. IMO this limits its utility. Should be great for a situation where you have queued up content or have a playlist ready to go or running. But if you want to change the song,album, playlist etc you will need to dive deeper into your phone to use Remote, or use the Mac it's paired with to choose what you are listening to.
Great for volume adjustment or starting stopping content but can't choose content or what you want to listen to next.
Bad instructions, but finally worked
I paired my phone with my laptop and couldn’t get the app to work. Became so frustrated I went to delete the app from my phone and it finally opened and worked. FYI to everyone, if you just tap on the app icon on an iPhone it opens a menu only. But if you press down and hold firmly on the icon the volume control will open. Note to developer: please include this info in your instructions or fix the problem.
Now useless on older hardware
Until the latest updates, it was working perfectly on my 4S under 8.3. Upgrading the OS on the 4S renders it virtually useless. I understand the need to support newer hardware and software, it's just very unfortunate the decision was made to phase out the existing equipment and software that worked just fine. And yes, I happen to have a newer phone with the newest shiny iOS. I just don't believe in throwing out a piece of technology because it's old.
