It was never great but worse now... I've been using this for about a year now and it was never great, sometime choppy, sometime not. In the last few weeks the program unexpectedly quits after 10-20 minutes every time. Nothing on the phone has changed and the app hasn't even been updated. WTF? Can no one make a good airplay receiver app? I will pay good money for one that works.

constant crashes - unusable waste of money. I wanted to use this app to stream music from my MacBook and iPhone to my old Droid 1, which is connected to my stereo. It works for 1 song or so before crashing. Unusable.

Disappointing This app is one of the few that I've actually paid for, and it is so close yet so far from being amazingly useful. But, as others have said, reliability issues make it pretty much not worth ever actually using. Refuses to start up half the time, and crashes with extreme and infuriating regularity. For now I'm sticking to wires.
