Absolutely great! This app really makes an already great computer program musicbee complete! I am on call 24/7 and the phone could ring at any time, this turns down the music when the phone rings and allows me to control it right from my phone. It allows me to enjoy loud music without being afraid of missing a call, and works flawlessly.

Thanks AOL Thankfully AOL f-ed up Winamp so I could get to know this awesome software. Now I can also replace Amarok on my Linux system. I am overjoyed!

Needs Playlist recognition It would Def be 5 stars if you can see and switch between your playlists on your remote. Who wants to search for each song you want to play??? It's handy though

Excited for playlist support. Does this mean being able to search our entire library by artists as well?
