Customer Reviews

Update (3 stars)
Retina icon is missing!

iPod controls are a (very) welcome addition! (4 stars)
Hope even more new features are added soon.

Default iOS time-scrubbing would be nice as well.

Thanks for adding iPod control! (4 stars)
Only problem is the iPod control is a bit flakey. Sometimes it continues to play even if I hit the pause button on my remote (or hit pause in the task switcher). When it happens, I think it's always when the app is playing in the background. Could someone please look into this?
