Looks good and if it did what it says it can it would be an amazing app. Unfortunately, I can’t create any playlists and full screen isn’t working either.

Muse app -simple and compact

i like its simplicity and not taking all the space on my desktop..needs a little work still it wont save to playlist after being created??
I like it saving history for 2 weeks to a month….always room for improvement…This app is really on the right track..lacking a few more screws and tighting up..
Thank you

2. The hot keys dont work most of the time.

3. Want a refund. Not worth paying 5$
