    Over the moon with this. It does everything I want from Sonos. For full benefit root your phone which is easy enough. Now simple podcast and deezer streaming. Thank you to the development team.

    Works great and I like the shortcuts, but when using the Megaphone option there is a delay and it is impossible to turn the volume off of the phone. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks, grouping rooms works! Anotger question: is it possible to just read an nfc tag and start a macro? My nfc-stickers are already filled with Data from the 'Trigger'-App and I don't want to download Tasker just because of that...

    I am very pleased with this app. After noticing that it couldn't do something I needed it to do, I contacted the developer and asked him about it. Within days, he had added the feature I requested.

    Amazing, and makes setting common tasks much faster. Needs to execute macros faster, and avoid occasional reliability problems that means a macro sometimes doesn't work.
