Some recent reviews from the Mac App Store
I have used a few different scrobblers over the years, NepTunes is by far the best of the lot. It’s as unobtrusive as you want, notifications, menu bar, desktop cover art, all, some, none, perfect! It uses few system resources. And it has just the right amount of flair – see the lovely cover art animation when a track begins playing." by Christopher Corbettis- Jun 22, 2016
"Keeps getting better!
NepTunes is hands-down the best way to get iTunes to scrobble reliably, and the tight integration with iTunes and Spotify are top-notch. You can configure it to work silently as a Last.fm scrobbler or as a fully-featured controller that displays album artwork and controls your music from one place and anything in between. Plenty of options to make it work exactly as you need it to. This app is completely worth the cost of admission." by l33tpeas- May 23, 2016
"Definitely worth the money!
I know there are free scrobblers for Mac out there but this is really worth the money! It’s really easy to use and has features that not many scrobblers have! In addition they provide frequent updates which is always a plus! The new iTunes update broke most of my scrobblers but this was updated under a day! I’m really happy with this purchase." by Apple_FIN- May 17, 2016
Having used this app since launch it’s been great to see it mature from a simple last.fm scrobbler into a fully-featured iTunes controller. The new sharing features are great, and seem well executed, and the ability to go straight to recent tracks or similar artists on Apple Music is a handy bonus. None of which takes away from its core purpose (for me at least) which is to be a super-solid and reliable scrobbling solution. I wish all Mac apps got this much love from their developers." by mr_phillip- Apr 4, 2016

What's New in Version 1.50:
This update is focused on bringing features that you requested:
- Now there are 3 sizes of cover
- Main menu will show available players only when there are two opened at the same time (so it's less cluttered)
- Track and artist name in main menu will be truncated, if it's too long
- You can opt-in to remove extra tags like "[Live]", "(Demo)" etc. from track title for scrobbler (so it will be scrobbled without them)
- Keyboard shortcuts for music player playback (play/pause, next track, previous track)
Leave a review if you like NepTunes - it really helps making the community bigger and motivates me to make app even better.
