Great idea, buggy execution ***UPDATED*** Edit: Fixed in the current version, works great! When playing music on my phone through the basic Google Play music app, the song shown on the watch display is very rarely in sync with what is actually playing. It seems to only synchronize sporadically, and will often tell me that "no music is playing" when I'm three or four songs into an album. I've tried adjusting the settings, but nothing seems to help.

Won't Show Songs 1/24 Thanks for the fix! 1/23 Using Spotify, all that it shows on my Pebble is "0 out of 1 song... Downloading Music" I can't get it to display anything else. Have restarted spotify, removed from Pebble, restarted phone, restarted Pebble... Still shows the same thing.

Connected to Spotify, and it keeps telling me Taylor Swift is the song playing, when she is not. Why is it not changing?
