One thought on “Helium 12.3 officially released!

  1. Hello,

    I’m an IT-journalist, writing reviews about multimedia stuff in several german audio- and video-print-magazines.

    I’m interested in reviewing Helium, specially with the remote via smartphone. For me very interesting is the possibility in rating the music via remote.

    Please send me a press access for the premium version.

    You’ll find hints about my publications in googling my name.

    Thanks and beste regards
