Nice simple app but one request

The app does what it needs to do, and only what it needs to do. It lives quietly in the bottom right hand corner of my Mac. Skip, rewind and pause work well and It is not intrusive. My only request would be to have the ability to size it down to the size of the spp systems tray at the bottom of my screen. As it is it has to be just a little taller than the tray and thus is always partially cut off by whatever I'm viewing in my screen when enlarged. It does allow for small, medium and large which is a step in the right direction. Allow me to drag to perfect size and it would greatly enhance the user experience.

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!

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!
