Which version is recommended? 1.3 from St.Clair Software website or 1.2.4 from Apple App Store, sorry if this is a dumb question, but why are there two versions available concurrently, Thanks!

Running 10.9.1
[Version 1.3]

I've now been using Swinsian for a few weeks and found it stable and full featured. Gradually building up my library that can now be of various file types which is a nice experience. Just dumping files into my watched folder and Swinsian does the rest. I am still careful with my tagging but I can do all that inside the [Track Inspector] side bar.
Interesting that Flac now supports album art, a nice bonus from when I was last using Flac with SongBird. Great fun to re-rip my favourite albums into lossless and have a dedicated player to enjoy them, still using iTunes as my gross player as I've hundreds of albums on iTunes Match, best of both world though, now!
Full screen compatibility on OS X means Swinsian lives in its own space :-)
I also like the imaginative name, Proto-Germanic *swinisōną, from Proto-Germanic *swin- ("to sound")... very clever!

Now give a full 5 Stars...

I am trying to find a comprehensive log of Swinsian's installation, as there seems to be a persistent cache somewhere that is remembering the applications state through uninstall and re-install. I'm using AppCleaner to remove the app but obviously this is not finding everything.

These are the only paths I can identify that Swinsian uses, any others?

~/Library/Application Support/Swinsian

Specifically [Track Inspector] seems to remember its edited state between uninstall and reinstall. I would have presumed the .plist is the file used to remember 'state'.

This is only due to me learning how to use this programme alongside iTunes library, editing album tags and translating edits back into Swinsian as the [Rescan iTunes library every time Swinsian is opened] option doesn't seem to catch tagging changes. I have a very large Classical Collection and am quite fussy with correct tagging. I'm so far very glad I found this application, I'm very excited!

Didn't realise OS X aggressively saves some application preferences in RAM, so once I rebooted everything was set to defaults on a fresh install. Ignore the above comment.
Really liking Swinsian! This may finally be a replacement for iTunes.

The pictures on MacUpdate need to be updated as the latest version doesn't look the same, the window spacing is huge by comparison and the window label is now above the dock icon.
