Bluetooth Great app! Would be better with Bluetooth support, so we without wifi can still control things.

Love it, kinda annoying sometimes though I absolutely love this app, it's super useful and I can't wait to see more features. Sadly, there is one problem - it's nearly impossible to turn it off completely, and if it's trying to reconnect it tends to crash my other apps... Really annoying when it does it in the middle of a YouTube video or randomly closes my keyboard while I'm typing. Fix this and add playlist functionality and you'll have five stars faster than you can say "MusicBee"! =)
