I tried the app just to see if it works in OS X 10.6 and it does, at least with iTunes 10.7. The requirement for OS X 10.7 seems to be wrong.

The app works as advertised. If you feel you need the to make playlists in a separate window it's useful. In my case I wouldn't use this even on iTunes 11. I'd rather look for an alternative player.

Macupdate, The release info states that versipn 1.1.0 "Fixes issues running under OS X 10.6", yet you list 10.7 as a requirement. Why?
You don't fix issues under OS X 10.6 if your app doesn't run under 10.6.

Don't you have this same functionality if you simply keep iTunes 10.6.3 and don't update to crappy newer versions of iTunes?

I use iTunes 10.7 and can open a playlist in a window of its own. I would imagine this app does more than that.

Right, because 10.7 isn't the newer version of iTunes, it's old.

In iTunes 10.6.x and 10.7.x, you can double-click on a Playlist and it'll open in a new, separate window. Since iTunes 11, that doesn't happen.

If you double-click on a Playlist in iTunes 11.0.4, nothing happens. One of the only reasons I'm sticking with an old version.

Nice to see comments from people who, you know, have actually used the app.

Maybe we can't be enticed to use the app as we fail to see the attraction. There hundreds of thousands of apps. You only try apps that you feel you need. I was hoping for more than what this app seem to deliver.

As I'm still on iTunes 10.7 I don't need this. That's good info if you are in the same situation. If you're on 11 this could be useful and worth trying out.

I addressed that with "works as advertised" also under OS X 10.6.

I'd personally need more functionality from a playlist organizer, like automated creation and processing based on certain properties and similar.
