Amazing with a few requests

I love this app! Makes listening to music on my Mac SO much better. Thank you!

Please add "like" and "add to playlist" functionality. And, please add the ability to see the player only when we hover over the little menu icon up top or hide it in our wiget sleeve to the right. Those few things would make this app absolutely perfect and I'd be more than happy to pay for them in a one-time payment - maybe a "premium" feature...Thanks again!

Very nice app

I've been flummoxed by Apple Music and some of its inscrutable design choices, like having a MiniPlayer that does not display current track information. You can view track information in that miniplayer for what's up next, but not for the current track. Whaaaaa? Seriously, WHY?

This app allows me to view that track info along with the album art, which means a lot to me and my heavily curated private music collection. I give it only 4 stars though because I would love to see a little more capability of configuring the player to my liking. Namely, I would love to be able to view Composer as well as Artist and Song Title. I use the Composer field quite a bit, not just for my classical selections, but also for my nature sound files, which I listen to a lot.

I'd be willing to pay for a premium version of Silicio that had this feature!

A great replacement to Simplify, and more

I was a heavy user of Simplify as I switched between multiple music players/browsers throughout the day, and macOS' media controls were lacking for my needs. But Simplify was stopped being maintained and eventually broke, so I gave Silicio a try. Not only does it fills in as a drop-in replacement, I find it more stable and is much more reliable with a Touch Bar. The Mini Player is also has a better UI. Really happy with finding this app!
