Doesn't work When it connects, which is only half the time, it doesn't show my library and I have to search every song manually.

colours it could be nice if you could fix the colour of the text in the notification bar because it's white on white background

Great app I like this app, but I do wish there was a way to browse my library visually by album cover. Otherwise it's really polished and easy to use.

Simplistic. Needs playlist support. Kinda slow to connect and load also. But it's decent enough with a nice simple design that works as you'd expect it too. I'm used to Foobar which has a range of Android remotes with more functionality
