I’m not able to edit my last post, but I did want to amend my initial reaction to the Jet app. I’ve spend the better part of the past hour using it, exploring the options, etc.
Nickel and Diming aside (that is still bothersome) – the app itself is pretty good. The stuttering when loading album art I noticed at first was just a one-time thing. There’s a high degree of customization available in display and player behavior. In short, I didn’t give it a fair shake at first – on second look, it’s a good app and – given the DPS profiles integration – well worth the small investment to upgrade.
