Most useful band app I installed yesterday and it is working perfectly. So far I have used it with Smart Audiobook and Mediamonkey. I have installed almost all the apps for band and this by far the most useful 3rd party app. I emailed the developer today with a suggestion and heard back within an hour. 5 stars.

Scott Davis

It works UPDATE:: My previous issue has been resolved, and it works flawlessly. Nice to find a developer/development team that works to resolve issues quickly! My only hiccup is that I use a different media service (Rdio) and I can't advance/pause from the app. The volume works though. I would give it five stars if it supported any media player.

Glenn Leaman

Works well Icons disappear when pressed. Android 4.4.2 buttons continue to function.

paul quinn

Nice little app. Works well with Deezer

Robert Hermsdorf

A must have! The developer is awesome! Quick to respond to suggestions. Love that now we can control Google music.

Jeffrey Watson

Needs some additional work. I use google play music and basically the only thing that works is the volume control. If I try to pause the stock player starts. Same with skips. I have checked Google music and there isn't a setting for Bluetooth controls that I can find. My Bluetooth headset seems to work fine so I am not sure what the issue is. I also tried setting my default stream and music app to see if that would solve the problem. It did not seem to effect anything. Keeping the app for now with hopes for improvements.

Adam Sinicki

Thank you! Awesome! Loving all your apps so far, please keep developing for Android/Band! Only glitch for me: the images on the buttons disappear when you click them. Doesn't really affect functionality but it would be nice if they stayed there (more impressive when I'm showing to friends...). Great work!

Paul Martin

Support for spotify ?? and buttons seem to dissapear after clicking them Simple app works fine when using default app but cant set spotify to default thus cant control music using it, also have some problems with the buttons dissapearing. Overall could be a very useful app hope you work on it !

Chris Handy

Getting better Been waiting for a media controller since I got my band. Developer is good with supporting the app. Disappearing icons is the only issue left

Kevin Phillips

Great job I just wanted to say that you guys did a great job on this app. This was one thing that I really wanted to see. This was worth $.99. Also it's great seeing how good you guys are with support. Unlike other app makers, you guys are quick to answer people.

Works, could use tweaking This works exactly like it says for me (M8/Lollipop) the only two slight annoyances are: when clicking one of the buttons it disappears for a couple seconds then reappears. 2. Because of how the band is I have to scroll and re-open the tile after the band goes into watch mode. the band doesn't open the last tile you were on for any tile, I don't think that is a developer issue though.

Samantha Williams

Does what it says (mostly) Works with some music apps better than others eg built in player has full control as does Deezer but not much happens with Google Music player (pauses but won't play after pause, volume ok but can't move through tracks). A good start but needs work still

Bartek Kliszczyk

Needs fixing Icons on the ms band disappear when pressed

hasan sayani

Need support for Pandora and SoundCloud. Also me tile with current playing song would help.

Corey Marsh

Spotify Doesn't control Spotify at all.

Allison Ly

Disappearing buttons...

Idalí Beltré

This should be standard on the band Thanks for making this possible, really great app! I would recommend just a little thing. Enable the option to leave the screen on for a longer period or lock it with multiple presses of the action buttons on the band so if I am in the middle of a song and want to change I don't have to wake up my device again. Thanks!!!

Christopher Spurlock

Works great! This needed to be on the device day 1. The player app/tile works great and I would personally have paid more for this. Only issue I see is the disappearing button images after being pressed, but this is still a 5 star app. Thanks for taking the time to fill in the missing gaps on the MS Band!

James Ford

Works as advertised. Very pleased.

Nelson Wasiuk

Works great. Thanks for this!

Hailey Blodgett

How do you change songs on the band? I love this app but I can't control how to change songs on the band. I can only get one song to play. Can anyone help?

Mathew Wicks

Lacking a few features. Some suggestions -- The abily to change the target app from the band. Preferably from a list defined on the phone. -- A stop button for the "find phone" sound on the band. -- The action button could be a pause button -- The option to move the volume controles to another page. So you can make the other buttons bigger, I often hit the wrong thing. -- Thanks, Great App

David McCabe

Must have for Band 2. Will play Pocket Casts, Amazon Music, OneDrive, and Google Play Music. Find your phone is nice too. Great job.

Al Jamm

A nice add for MS Band 2 I like the features the app provides, but I just wish that I don't have to go into the app everytime I want to switch between which app I'm controlling. Wish there was a way to choose maybe top 3 or 5 most used audio apps to control. Otherwise 5 Stars!

Andrew Poznikoff

Great app! Easy to use, works well, and the find phone button is a nice feature. Only thing I would like to see is ability to control more than one app at a time.

Kyle Boehlen

Doesn't work Does not work at all. Please refund.

Kevin Harvell

A must have for owners of a Band 2 who are in the Android ecosystem. Here is the secret to getting it to switch which apps it controls though (took me a bit of time to figure out the quickest way to do so). At the moment it seems you need to go into the Media Control app, change the music/movie app you want it to control, then clear it from memory in the recent apps list (accessed via the square button on the bottom right corner of your device) before it will switch between services. Would be a 5 star app were it not for needing this extra step which thankfully is not that big an issue. Also would be nice to add YouTube, Spotify, Groove Music and maybe Pandora for users if possible. Thankfully the media apps I use the most are here, other than YouTube missing.

Joshua Fadriquela

Worth it... Love controlling media without picking up my phone

Alan Fong

Doesn't work on the LG G4 and Band 1 Can only add the media control tile. Only works with the volume and nothing else. All other apps cannot be added.

saghir hussain

Music controls Installed ok, however the music features do not work can't move forward or back on Spot if, volume works. Will keep it hopefully the developer will update further. Any help o resolving issue will be appreciated. I do like find my phone

Bart Stafford

Basic but a good start Volume for Sonos doesn't work. Would be nice to have track info and album art display as well.


Great! Works perfectly on Band2 + HTC One M7 with Lollipop

C Davis

Works flawlessly for my needs! Using the music player Power Amp on my Samsung Galaxy S5. Controls my music just the way I want. Thanks.

Allison Ly

Absolutely Fantastic Does exactly what it is meant to do, and the phone finder feature is a nice bonus!

Leah Collum

App does not work I have an HTC M8. The app has never worked on my phone and crashes immediately when I try to open it. On my band only the pause and volume options work. I cannot get the play button to work and I cannot change songs.

Lily Robinson

Loving the new find-my-phone button on the tile's second page.

Chris Handy

Excellent must have Been waiting for a media controller since I got my band. Developer is good with supporting the app.

Steven Bulbes

Spotify It's good

hasan sayani


Jeffrey Nagele

Must have This is one of the first apps, of how I pictured, the smart watches doing things and not just as a source to read things from your phone.

Bartek Kliszczyk

Needs fixing Icons on the ms band disappear when pressed

Tobias Mueller

Find my phone doesn't work on Xperia Z5 compact with Band 2

Ashley Carter

Spotify control Doesn't work on Spotify at all.

Bill Lee

Very Flexible Lots of supported apps but most importantly Pocket Casts. I never have to reach into my pocket to adjust volume or skip ahead while on the bus any more. Well worth the minimal price.

Dandre Hall

in its current state i cant even pause my music or change the song . All i can do is change the volume
