    Thank you! Great alternative to the system killing update Sonos just forced on us. Keep it simple! Integrate Spotify and charge double! I'll pay!

    I don't trust any of the reviews. In 3 years I never was reliably use this app on 3 different phones. And now it does not allow to save any profile.

    Android audio to Sonos does nothing after granting root. A shame, since that was my reason for buying. Would have refunded, but that extra wait timer on this function made sure the refund window was closed. Also, using Tasker to play an url makes the soundfile repeat endlessly, making it difficult to use as an announcer. AirAudio works for streaming, where this app fails.

    When it works it's nice... But it currently does not work through tasker which is upsetting

    Does not mute or fade music when calls come in or go out. That's why I bought the app.
