This is a very expensive app with major shortcomings.
- 1.5.3 does not seem to be able to open MP3+CDG files on my Powerbook (10.4.2). 1.1.3 'works', after a fashion, so this is what I am reviewing here.
- Playing MP3 + CDG files works (1.1.3) but the lyric text very often overwrites without proper refreshing, so becomes unreadable. Not much good for karaoke!
- There is no full screen functionality. Also, if displayed on a TV, the standard TV screen is too small to display all the lyrics.
- If you want to play MP3 + CDG on your Mac, go with QMIDI instead ($12 shareware). This works, has full screen, and no text display glitches. [I am not affiliated with the developer of QMIDI in any way]. It doesn't have the library and search functions of iStar, but the fact that it works is enough to make me overlook this.
I'd avoid this app until the developer gets serious.
