The app uses too much CPU, it is slow to start up and it often encounters slowdown when switching to it.

The app is missing basic features present in Vox 2.8, like being able to freely re-size the playlist window (not being stuck with super-narrow mode), and having separate windows for each feature.

Separate windows available in Vox 2.8 (and presumably earlier) include album art (which isn't big/high res enough as it is), playlist separate from player like in Vox 3.1, and Equalizer and Effects for those who use them.

The forced 1-window design is not very liberating to say the least. For advanced users it is shackling.

The drop-down playlist menubar item is not as useable as previous versions, and in the past there was a convenient drop-down playlist option within the player window...which happened to be a very useful feature.

So far there aren't many reasons to consider the new Vox anything more than a fancy graphics neutered version of Vox 2.8-3.1.

Not expecting this to change, I will remain using a custom build using the 2.8 beta version with the 3.1 build library inserted into it, because the 2.8 was the best version of the interface as far as usability goes.

No it doesn't. Maybe you were hit by a pop-up ad from the file host, in which case I wouldn't even know because I use extensive ad blocking.

The drop-down playlist menubar item is abbreviated and uses "..." ellipses for some reason.

Please give us a reason to change our minds, I think the new designed UI is actually very attractive.

I think this app would be the hands down winner in the category if it added one special feature – change # of channels for a given audio source within the menu. That way I would not have to open Audio Midi manager for apps that decide to revert device back to 1-channel.

The Beta says that is offers the option to change sample rate for given input option. However, no option for sample rate appears in my version. I wonder if its just my computer?

Actually its just an old 2007 MBP, although running the newest OS. That's cool, I'll check back and get the update, so far I think your app is best of class.

So far I actually like the new version, but here are some ideas that really need to be implemented.

1. Customizable playlist/player width. As it is we're stuck not being able to read a track's entire name if its too long with the miniature fixed playlist width.

2. Customize scrolling speed of info in player window

3. Single button, black + white menubar icon with drop down playlist functionality as available in Vox 2.8. Also I wish we could get the old menubar icon of the amp, the new icon is...not so fitting.

4. Obviously, option for stand alone window for album artwork.

Another option that should be brought back from old Vox:

Customizable color options. One of the best reasons to use Vox through 2.8 was the custom controls for color, hue, saturation, alpha of the window. I know I'm not alone in this.

A great app. With a few more tweaks it will be the best image browser. I for one would like to see more image viewing arrangement options – like Finder-style list view or some of the others in Lyn.

I think this is the best mail program for Mac. Apple Mail is over complicated and infected by Sparrow-syndrome. I can't stand the layout of any of the other e-mail programs.

I use this program in conjunction with Notify to update me on my latest mails and that way I don't need to have Postbox open all the time, this might work for those of you with RAM issues.

The current version may increase hardware accelerated playing, but on my old Core 2 Duo MBP it uses much less CPU and also runs at 1/2 the fps. What happened here? It ran fine before but with performance hiccups occasionally.
