Selected Test Results

What works

  • Audio, the most basic part of the application works surprisingly well on a weaker machine like mine.
  • The interface works as expected.
  • Login was no issue.
  • Integrates with the status bar almost perfectly.

What does not

  • Audio CAN pause briefly on weaker machines, but it's nothing major.
  • Having to fight the application to resize it.
  • Cannot maximize the app properly; expecting glitches with that.
  • If the app idles and an advertisement comes up, a translucent black box will appear until you get arid of the ad. Recommend keeping minimized when not in use.
  • Spotify status tray icon could use resizing, even though it functions normally.

Workarounds

What was not tested

  • Keyboard commands
  • Proxy settings
  • Some preferences like storage

Additional Comments

The app works, but for the best possible results, try and grab the Official Linux Preview instead.
