Works Works great and I like the shortcuts, but when using the Megaphone option there is a delay and it is impossible to turn the volume off of the phone. Am I doing something wrong?

Great app and integration with Dropbox - must have buy. Seeing a few issues though *ID3 tags aren't streamed when using Dropbox integration (all you get is the filename and extension) *No option to exclude subfolders with Dropbox integration *When creating a macro for playing a song from my device it seems the artist name is not going through from this app to Sonos because if I do the same (for the same song) from within Sonos then the artist name is shown in the 'now playing' screen of Sonos (and subsequently in the notifications drawer) - I need this because I'm using DashClock Music Extension to display what is currently playing - it uses the RemoteControlClient Android API - but with no artist all I get is the track name. I can confirm all ID3 tags are set and correct.

Great but still runs in the background Even if I exit the app (back button) and remove it from Recents, it returns to running in the background after awhile, or a reboot.
