Awesome app, didn't expect to be this good!

I was looking for an app to display the current song playing in the menu bar. I discovered Spotica Menu by accident and decided to give it a try.
I was shocked by the customization options!!
- You can choose what song info you want, like song, album, artist, year, etc.
- show/playback controls
- It can display the progress as text or a bar below the text inside the menu bar 🤯
- Choose between Spotica icon, album cover, artist image.
All of this in the free version. There are additional options if you register.
Definitely recommended!

how do you hide drop down please?

Great app to add to playlist and especially to add to automate to do so, but how can you hide the drop down that happens with keyboard shortcut?

escape key doesn't work like most drop down, would help automation alot, thanks.
