We have tested the app on 8 different devices; and it works perfectly. The maximum number of devices is only limited by the host's hotspot capabilities.

Great app.. Great functionality.. and best part about it is.. its free !
There seems to be problem with a few HTC Devices like the SV (On the stock ROM) with the wifi tether causing the music to sync like a hit and miss.. cant figure out why..

Alternatives like bluetooth / wifi direct / wlan / nfc maybe great and provide nice alternatives to the wifi tether.
Also functionality like being able to save the share the music on the shared devices may also help the app do better.

All in all an amazing start! All the best!
