Great little helper

It's great to have Sonos controls at your fingertips in the menu bar while working on your MacBook. The fast response time is great. I don't need much functionality, I can start, stop and change the volume. That's all I need. And the App does a great job in that.


Great app, great support

Works out of the box and does a good job, keeping things simple and efficient. Support was awesome with a little issue I had with recently introduced shortcuts!


Sweet little tool

I love the fact that I can change tracks and my Sonos volume right from the menubar instead of switching to the Sonos app on my Mac (which is always in another desktop than the one I'm working in).
