FAQs

Does Sleeve need access to my Apple Music or Spotify account?
There’s no authentication required — Sleeve interacts directly with the Apple Music and Spotify apps as long as they're open on your Mac.
Why does Sleeve ask to control Apple Music/Spotify/Doppler when it first launches?
Sleeve needs this system permission in order to fetch information from those apps. All we fetch is the current track info and whether or not the apps are open and playing.
Why does Apple Music support work best with macOS 11.3?
A recent macOS 11.3 update improves AppleScript support in Apple Music. If you're on an earlier macOS version, we may not be able to get the track details unless you're only playing local files.
Why does the 'Like' control not appear for Spotify?
Unfortunately Spotify's AppleScript support is limited and we don't currently have a way for Sleeve to add tracks to the 'Liked' playlist in Spotify. We're hoping to be able to add support in the future.
