Doesn't appear to have been updated since 2012. Real shame, because it has amazing potential. I stopped using it because it kept opening iTunes and freezing, but give it a try, it might work for you.

My intention was to have an alternative to iTunes, but there doesn't seem to be anything for Mac at all.
