Software Reviews and Criticism

  • By Joe Joe Dogface a boo boo

    Really Enjoy this app and the latest release

    This is simple app that does a great job taking care of a few important features that I need when I'm working on my Windows - specifically - it allows me to pause my sonos stream when the phone rings and integrates in with the now playing so I can see what song is on if I'm listening to a random playlist and don't know all the songs listed. I've been very impressed as the developer is adding new features so my initial investment just seems to get better and better. Well worth the current price.

    Perfect! with room to improve

    So I guess than technically it's not perfect but w/e, shut up, I like it. You can't group speakers from this app but if you group them within your phone's Sonos App that grouping will reflect in this app. Simple act of setting up a playlist or radio station to play "Everywhere" through the Sonos App and then control volume (both of the group and every linked speaker) through this utility bar app and pause/skip tracks. WEll done! Would be nice if we could group and browse from this plugin but that might be a stretch.

    People don't read app descriptions

    This app does exactly what it promises in the description. Why do people (and I use the word "people" with reservation) downgrade a good app because it doesn't do more than what is promised? If you work at your computer while your phone is charging out of reach, this is an ideal solution. There are so many times when I just want to turn the volume down or up, or select an extra speaker or two for a really good song. That's why I give this developer a five star.

    Great start for what I needed

    Always rushing to a speaker to pause or turn the volume down when my phone rings, so this will be VERY handy. It would be nice to also have full controls like the Sonos app where I could change the music, but this is great for what it does.

    Awesome with my StreamDeck

    The initial install worked great. I bought this for the AppleScript support—I use it to control my system from a StreamDeck. I took off one star because there is no documentation for the AppleScript. I'm a software engineer but not experienced in AppleScript, so I had to do a bit of trial and error. Also, I'd really like the playPause verb to be separate play and pause so I can have one button for Play and another for Pause without having to check if the device is currently playing.
