Opens multiple windows. Stays open in background. Can't kill with task killer. Uninstall
Kept freezing when configuring media.
Terrible. It took an hour to get it working and then only read 3 songs from my whole library. Don't download.1*
It keeps foreclosing.
Great app. Works exactly like it should. Recommended!!
Was a beta tester and this works great. I've upgraded to the full version.
Doesn't recognize music. HTC incredible.
Haven't had chance to use this as it requires you to use a PC app to generate BPMs first. Uninstalled.
Freezes at scanning media
