If you don't use iTunes, this app has little to offer you.
Song list doesn't update live: The list of songs presented updates only once - at the start of the app. If you make any changes to your library in iTunes, be sure to restart the app to see them reflected.
Outdated visual design: The software was made to look like a companion to iTunes, but since it has not been visually updated for some time, it still resembles iTunes 9. Needless to say, that look feels jarring when you use any of the newer versions of OS X.
index for Mac may not be much to look at, but it works well. It runs smoothly, and the song scanning takes just 2 seconds per track on average. However, the look is dated, and index won't be useful if you're not managing your songs through iTunes.
index for Mac downloads and uploads remote files using an FTP, SFTP, or a WebDAV indexion, as well as online storage services like Google Drive and Amazon S3 Storage. It's a well-built, accessible app that does its job without any issues, though its transfer speeds may not be the best.

index solves a perceived problem for millions of iOS users -- the organization of business and contact information on the iPhone. For those that don't have this problem, the app will feel redundant in many ways. For those that do, however, index is a marvel, syncing with Apple or PC resources, streaming everything into a single interface, and allowing you to quickly update all of it on the fly, and then back up to a central cloud server.
