    "Songbird is tone-deaf. Probably not worth the effort..."

    March 17, 2011  |   By dcis_steve


    Looks great, very customizable. Awesome droid player app


    Everything else. Watch folders don't watch, the software crashes, is laggy, and often unresponsive. Syncing music to your phone just doesn't work well at all. When you spend half the time in help files and emailing support, it's just not worth it.


    I spent the better part of an evening trying to figure this software out. I really wanted to make it work. I love the player for the droid. However, it's just far to problematic for what it is. This is just one of many tools for listening to and managing your music collection. There are so many other players that work just fine without the problematic learning curve to waste your time on this one. It looked good, but didn't deliver in my opinion.
