    Needs a few improvements and fine tuning but all around a great app. Use it all the time.

    Great app! Lumia 1520 screen size not correct in landscape. Any feature you can add such as clinometer or music spectrogram without having to open an app through a shortcut would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!

    UPDATE: App is now working fine and my purchase was restored. Knocking off one star because album art does not show up for songs downloaded from Xbox music. App was great until it took away my purchase. I paid $2 to upgrade to pro, which worked for about two weeks, then mysteriously I get in my car and I have ads and the app is asking me to pay to upgrade again.
