CS not bad ,

Beautiful app, but glitchy and no longer supported

Beautiful UI, but unfortunately you need to keep it open for it to work. If you switch to another app, the music stops playing if you try and return to the player. If your phone display is set to turn off after a minute or two, again the app will stop playing and the music must be re-started. The only way around it is to keep your iPhone display on indefinitely and not switch to another app. Looks like McIntosh, has stoped supporting it sadly. Understandable as it’s a free app. I would have paid good money for this if it was working properly. This was too good to be true, sadly. The only to have to have that McIntosh experience is to shell out big bucks I guess.

Only a Start

Looks pretty, looks Mac. Meter activity is hokey but still kind of cool. But... only works through WiFi and only accesses your cloud music. If future updates allow access to be limited to the downloaded music on the device and to function off-line I’ll load it back up. For now, I’ve deleted it. McIntosh, this is below you.

Like it the way it is !

It could use a little polishing, but is very capable. I'm glad the streaming media app is separate. It won't be for the typical i-crowd, and it's not a light-show, so don't expect it to be. It's a concise Bluetooth-enabled (now "AirPlay"?) player that couples well with a B-tooth receiver that bridges flash memory digital music storage with your audiophile equipment. It also lends itself to album playing more than one-song "beats", although a playlist is available. Very surprised to see it available, and very pleased to get away from i-Want your credit card. A+ for simplicity, A- for app implementation.
