Image Doesn’t Change

This is a great app, but for me frequently the album cover image doesn’t change when the track changes. The text description keeps up, but not the image. I’ve tried deleting and re-installing the app and get the same result. Since I haven’t seen anyone else complain about this, I’m thinking it must be particular to my iMac. Nevertheless, it’s a problem for me. Hence 4 stars.

It's OK, but barebones

Silicio is still the gold standard of these apps, but it really bugs me that that app doesn't let you view artwork and song title at the same time. This one does that, so kudos on that. However, it's a huge non-resizable player. Dev, please take a look at Silicio and adopt as much as possible from that app, such as preference to hide pointless Dock icon and a slider for album size.

This one also lacks keyboard shortcuts to hide/show player or quickly toggle whether it's on top. 3 stars because it has a lot of improvements possible, but core feature works.

Delivers exactly what is promised

I love it. It works exactly as advertised. The only request I would make is, is it possible to have a super compact mode which is mostly horizontal and can be expanded/shrunk horizontally? I’m thinking, a scrolling area for song info and then Previous, Pause & Next controls. I have a lot of wasted space next to my Dock and would be great to have this always on top there.
