Not visual interface. Very small font. Many bugs on macOS. In the new version 1.4, the font has become even more illegible and gray/dull! Sucks application!

Just wanted to add that I recently had to set-up a Windows laptop as a music player. I used Clementine, and it's been working wonderfully. So, all of my previous praises, plus 'cross-platform' too.

Really easy-to-use music player being a great alternative to iTunes. In my opinion, Clementine is more clear and simple. I like the way it is designed. Once, I recommended it to a friend and he was very thankful fro such an advice. He also appraised it's functionality and convenience. So, better try than talk.

Just to update my previous review: I've been using Clementine all day/everyday since March (it provides the ambient music at my workplace). Mostly using the "Dynamic random playlist" mode, which creates a random playlist, but allows you to add/subtract/rearrange tracks at will. This mode alone makes the app worthwhile, as it gives you much more control/flexibility than a standard random mode. In general, Clementine is a wonderful desktop audio player. Good sound quality, stable (it's crashed exactly two times in six months of very heavy use), and (mostly) full featured -- including the very helpful remote app for Android devices. However, It's within that feature-set where Clementine has it's two major problems -- in that it doesn't seem to recognize any MTP device I've tried, nor does it recognize audio CDs, let alone rip them. If they can't get these features working in future releases, I'd recommend dropping them altogether. Additionally, there are a few bugs that pop up from time to time. Set album covers not transferring to the individual tracks seems to be the most common/noticeable. But that, and other problems that arise, are pretty inconsequential, and easily remedied. So if you've been looking for a free iTunes alternative, you've found it. I urge you to give it a look for yourself. All of my co-workers have become converts, and I have a strong suspicion you'll become one too.

I just started trying this app because for the last few months my iTunes plays some Songs about half-way through and then skips to the next Song. There's a LOT of people on the Net who are having the same problem for Years now and Apple doesn't seem to give a crap.

So, Clementine seems pretty cool (and doesn't Skip in the middle of Songs). My only problem is how to use their Playlist... and there's no Help Pull-Down with the app and nothing I could find on their site..

So, I updated my desktop CPU and in the process lost ppc emulation. Meaning, I lost my beloved Audion :( It had been a few years, so I give the almighty iTunes another go. Somehow, I hate it even more (I didn't think that was possible. How this app squashed all competitors is beyond me). So, I’m in need of a mp3 player that has a feature set at least near to Audion’s (I know skins are a dream of the past). I settle on Nightingale for a couple months. And while it’s decent, it’s general clunkiness eventually gets to me. I go for a hail mary, and see if MacAmp has been ported to Intel (no) and MacUpdate recommends Clementine instead. What is this Clementine? Clementine is really, really nice. That’s what it is. So nice, I’ve been using it for a few months, and I still can’t believe it’s free. Granted, straight out of the box the sound was shrill, much like iTunes. But unlike iTunes, the eq managed to cut the shrillness and add a lot of warmth. No, it doesn’t sound as good as Audion, but nothing does. It sounds as good as Nightingale and not nearly as bad as iTunes. Initially, the need for both a library and playlist seems redundant (and it is), but the “smart playlists” set in the library circumvents this. It says it supports MTP or mass-storage USB players, but doesn’t seem to recognize my Creative Zen (so XNJB is still going to get lots of use) Lastly, it’s not exactly lean on memory, but nowhere near as greedy as Nightingale and iTunes. Now that we’ve addressed the minuses, in the plus column we have everything else. It has a robust feature and customization set that’s intuitive and even enjoyable to use. So while I could sit here and list every aspect I like (visualizations, MusicBrainz connectivity, interactivity with just about every online music service, etc, etc, etc), let me just save a lot of keystrokes and reiterate that it’s really, really nice. So nice, I can’t believe it’s free. If you’ve only been using iTunes due to lack of a quality alternative. you now have one. Take advantage.

I won't leave a proper review because I stopped trying it after the first launch (on 10.9.5), when I dropped a folder on the app's icon and it crashed! That's enough for me as it was precisely what I was searching for (an app that plays a dropped folder, not a crashing one... :-D ).
