Nothing but freezes lately that need a force quit of Smashtunes. Also even in its good days changing between Spotify and iTunes messed Smashtunes up too. Pity though, it was a sweet little program when it worked.

I'm using Smashtunes with OS X 10.68 for now. Is there any way to get it to NOT beep several times every time a new song plays, or when you pause or play? This is very annoying and unnecessary. Otherwise, I love the app, especially now when it no longer relaunches iTunes when you quit iTuens.
