  1. Bout damn time. That Player icon was burning my ass. The main reason why i downgraded after i saw it on the last update. Little things like that get on my nerves, especially when i bought the app on launch. Bad enough i had to in app purchase while new jacks have a choice + got a "Pro" icon.

  2. It's important to move from being a 'player' to being a 'pro', and they must have recognized that this was a serious issue to address.
