Unstable, Requires Scan of Music Directories The most inconvenient thing is the null pointer error the program throws up every time it starts as well as when accessing the file system. Perhaps because of tagging the program wants to "scan" directories. For SMB shares this is a serious inconvenience if you have a lot of music files. The scan process goes very slowly. The program crashes frequently during scans. Since I organize my music by directories, tags are unimportant. The problem with tags is that there is never any guarantee of consistency since they're user editable. Tags are only useful for organizing files if the files come from a single source that has ironclad tagging policies and the tags are read only. It's possible to play music with this program but it's clearly not ready for release yet.

Great for remembering playback position! This is one of the few apps I've been able to find that automatically remembers playback position without any other hassle; no conversion, no going through separate programs; it just works. The UI is pretty awful looking, but that doesn't stop it from being useful.
