Long-click to select tracks and edit your playlist! Or mix them up in an endless mix with repeat and shuffle play mode!

This software is awesome, but it's beta quality!

Great app - but media scanner has timeout issues with big collections The application itself is great - the major issue i have it is that the function 'scan for music' on my defined share tends to timeout. I assume it is related with the amount of files to scan. I was never able to scan my entire media collection so far in a 802.11n network. If that issue would be solved it would be the perfect solution for people with android devices and smd-shared audio-collections.

Love it! I use this to stream a large music collection from my desktop running Ubuntu to my phone with a Bluetooth speaker outside on the patio. Works flawlessly! I love it, and especially now that I can shuffle.

Great but limited I've looked at many music players and this is the only one I found to easily stream music. I would like it if I could select multiple folders and then add them to the playlist instead of opening each one and then pressing the two buttons to add all the tracks. Also missing are widgets and controls in the drop down menu bar thingy. After listening to hours of music, I'd say this app is great, as everything else I tried was really slow to open the network or had problems playing the next file but not this.
