It certainly doesn't look like it, hasn't been updated since January so no support for any of the cool stuff introduced with 10.8.

starting to regret ever buying it

installed from the App Store and:

a) no icon, just the name and a "shadow"! :-0
(on two different computers). on third delete/reinstall finally the icon is there
b) launched, imported my iTunes library and 8 out of 10 covers are missing (they do show just fine in iTunes, Ecoute, Sonora and CoverScout. btw: all are embedded into my music files!)
c) Smart Playlist are completely ignored (other apps import Smart playlist but convert them to plain one. a much better approach!)
d) add/remove some tracks to/from iTunes, launch Enqueue and... unless you *manually* refresh (or set iTunes folder as "watched") changes are not reflected in Equeue

contacted the developer re issue a), answered asking me to send a couple of example files then... he vanished and does not answer anymore

my quest for an iTunes replacement goes on :-(

This application is fantastic, finally a lightweight, well organized, nice looking application that can play FLACs! I have tried songbird, and clementine, and this is better than both. Its a must have.

My only two suggestions are:
1 DTS playback
2 Organize album by artist/year

Hopefully the developer can get these two suggestions in.

"2 Organize album by artist/year"

i made the same suggestion to the author and i'm amazed how most album oriented players still sort albums alphabetically. i wonder if this makes any sense to an album collector...

Nice iTunes alternative: lightweight but powerful. Currently using Enqueue as my primary music player and it has done the job well.

I have one issue, though. When shuffling is enabled, the second song it always the same. That's right and this isn't coincidence. For example when I start playing my library, close the app and re-open it, the second song is always the same song. This "problem" has existed from the very first betas to the latest release. Hope this will be fixed.

In addition to this, some presets for the equalizer would be nice to have.

However, keep up the good work! Looking forward to the upcoming updates & releases.

For a paid app this is lacking in so many areas. It is not worth $10

iTunes uses 3.2/3.3% range of CPU. Enqueue uses 4.0/4.3 range. Not a big deal. The HUGE difference is in RAM. iTunes is at 221 MB Real & 348 Virtual. Enqueue is at 90 R & 133 V. Now *that* is significant. Now, after quitting iTunes and Enqueue and purging RAM, playing a 10 MB MP3 from boot drive, iTunes is at 118 R & 133 V; Enqueue at 60 R & 103 V. This is with 8 GB RAM, BTW.

My issue is with wireless network. WAY too many dropouts on a 30 MB ALAC file. This might account for the differences in RAM. iTunes may be loading more of it into RAM. For sure Decibel does. I also don't have dropouts like this with Swinsian.

Speaking of which, until Enque gets Airplay support I will consider it seriously lacking for my uses. But for a an alternative to iTunes playing locally stored files, it's certainly making it's way. I'd prefer the bottom placed control/info bar be on top and the Library/Playlists, etc. on the bottom. Between the two I use the former more. Really like the Info pane. The History presentation is nice. Really do not like the contents of the currently playing Playlist showing in the Mini-Player, unless I'm missing something.

4GB of Crucial memory only costs $25. Buy some and use iTunes and many other apps without concern.

This program has alot of potential but as its still in beta, here's a few things I personally want:

- Ability to browse/organize library based on folders
- improved cue splitting support (some cue + range rips did not split in the library, showed only one big file)
- minimal view (I saw this is coming from Twitter)

Good luck developing this, its already better than iTunes anyhow...so far I prefer Vox because of its ability to handle cues, and very low CPU use, however I think your programs design is the most pleasing to the eye.

the latest 0.6.1 has a mini player already and it's playing on my machine with the eq on at 6% cpu. i'd say that's low.

I tried this in hopes it would be "lightweight' compared to iTunes on my system resources but surprisingly and regrettably I've found it uses more ram than iTunes does and roughly the same amount of cpu.

It's not a large amount more ram usage than iTunes, but nonetheless, I was hoping it would be be less and I had hoped it would be leaner and use less cpu.

The interface is clunky compared to iTunes. For example the volume slider is located very far away from play, stop buttons.

I think for now I'll stick with iTunes.

On the plus side it seem to work ok, no crashes in my limited usage of it. But, if you're look for lightweight as in less ram and cup usage, this isn't your playing to your tune.

When 90% of your music collection is FLAC files, you'll love it. In regards to it being "lightweight", it simply feels much "lighter" to me and it's a lot snappier than iTunes from my experience, despite the fact that it may be using more resources. But to each their own.

FLAC can easily be converted with XLD to ALAC then you'll have a file that plays in far more places.

Yes, but I prefer FLAC (yes I know there's no difference or loss in quality, I'm just weird). I use XLD quite often, it's a great app. There's also an add-on for iTunes that lets it play FLAC, but it adds the files far too slowly for the amount of files I have. I do occasionally use XLD to convert a few albums to ALAC when transferring to my iPhone. I'm just unnecessarily obsessed with sound quality. I need help... lol.

Nice try. But it always crashes on importing my iTunes library.
I won't start from scratch with my playlists, so it's basically unusable for me right now.

Hoping for a bug fix.

Hi, developer for this app here. Sorry youve had such problems. Everything is still very beta-ish. If you don't mind, at what point in the import process did it crash? Was it immediately at the beginning; some point in the middle; or after all the songs had been imported (past the 90% mark)? Any crash logs would be hugely appreciated.

Hal2007 replied on 26 Oct 2011
Thanks for your fast reply.

It's always crashing close to the 90 % mark, indeed. I have about 4.900 songs loaded in iTunes, of which about 4.300 have been imported into Enqueue when the crash occurs.

Hope you get it resolved, because I really like the app, and intend to replace my iTunes usage by Enqueue.
