Musicbee undoubtedly The Best I love it. Have been managing my large music libraries for years, having artist pictures and lyrics as my pc screensaver. With the remote I can do the same on my phone, plus control volume etc etc on my pc although it is an old beastie with no blue tooth. Awesome community forum for learning v fine customisation. My favourite program ever, truly. *****

I was able to delete the plugin that caused musicbee to crash so i don't have the message- its clear now. Clear instructions would be appreciated in a later update or email, like how to set everything up since i couldn't figure out how to open the diague box, pull up the uninstall bar, how to properly sync, etc... Thank you for the quick response! If i could get the app to work, I'll totally change the rating!

Works It works good for me, easy setup. No lag over 3g. It needs a way to browse my library and create playlists. That's a big minus. More than anything it needs to be able to stream the music to my phone, from my computer. That would make the app the most used app on my phone and get the 5th star and iv had other apps that do that so it should not be hard to do.
