I have never reviewed an app before, but this one is so good I can't say enough good things about it. I love Music Bee on Windows to start with. This weekend I set up an old laptop to be my music center with flacs loaded on the hard drive, external DAC, and all hooked up to an old TV. This app is the perfect controller. Great features. Great control. Theater Mode looks great. I can't ask for more, tbh. Thank you!!!

Thank you for the kind words :) I though of taking the application off Play Store a lot off times, but these reviews let me know that it is still useful to people, despite it's shortcomings

When I go to sync the app it says the library metadata sync was incomplete or failed completely. This might result in queuing not work..." I can't even get my music on it! EDIT: got everything set up and I cannot praise enough the support that I received. Thank you so much. This app and it's developer are great.

Hey TM, I confirmed that this is what will happen if the plugin is not updated to the latest version. There should be a full screen message informing you that the plugin requires an update when you first connect. Was it not displayed? Can you try updating the plugin and see if that solves the issue? If not please send me an e-mail.

Love this! It's small, it works, and it looks like a music player on your device. I expected it to be a stripped down but functional player. But it's slick and easy to use. Wish the tracks page had different formatting preferences but honestly that's nitpicking. Simple tool that does so much for my listening experience. Love it!
