Overall it works as advertised. The app is a bit confusing so a bit tricky to get working at the start. To be honest, it's fine. We unfairly compare it to how easy an iPhone or iPod is to use and on that it's not as easy re syncing, but that's not fair as they are totally different price points and products. I miss the old simple iPod, so if you're like me, this is a winner. Just be a bit patient with the app and syncing - but once you have your playlist on this little guy - you're rocking and its works great - easy to charge - sounds good - and super light. Would recommend it.
