I'm being extremely generous in my 4 star rating. This delivers a bare bones way to play music on my computer using my phone. Minimal ad intrusion, easy setup, works. Downside: I was looking at Playlist options, and accidentally selected "clear Playlist". The Playlist, which had 5,000 entries, was cleared AND DELETED by a slight mistake with my finger. I'm lucky that I use a backup service. But replacing the Playlist was still a huge pain. "Do No Harm": programming rule #1.

Thanks for the feedback! The app will now ask for confirmation before deleting or clearing playlists.

Terrific app! I use it to control foobar2000 on my desktop connected to the amplifier - and it's almost perfect. The only minor nuicanse is there's no "notification bar" that could be used to quickly pause / rewind.

It may be misssing some functionality, but it is reliable and it just works. Even though free version works just fine (ads are there, but they do not interfere with app functionality), I'm buying it to support development of this app. Highly recommend, keep up the good work!
