Well Then. ,

good enough, but small issues

1. The next/previous track buttons cannot be optionally removed. They're extremely annoying because I often hit them by mistake when trying to play/pause, which is nontrivally irritating when listening to long tracks (sets of hours' length) and losing my place.

2. For unclear reasons, the album artwork doesn't always show up.

Need help clearing the cache

Hello! I'm mostly writing a review here as more of an inqury. Is there an easy way to find/clear the cache taht retains the album artwork in BarTunes?

I recently added an album to iTunes which I gave the incorrect album artwork to, and used BarTunes with it before noticing my error. I corrected the album artwork in iTunes, but the old/incorrect artwork is still reflected in BarTunes, and I'm not sure how to fix this. Any help would be much appreciated!

nice but small suggestion

this app is free so my feeling is no negativity allowed . . . period. But, it would be nice if you could ‘rewind’ to the start of a song instead of going to the previous song. For now the controls only let you go to the song before or the song after. You know - in the case of go back: need also the single < not only the double <<
