Leech is exactly what this app is becoming
They should call it "leash tunes" because now users are leashed to it.
Please restore the use of the iOS global playlist manager instead of the one in the app.
Leech tunes used to piggyback the iOS music player, extending its superb UI and functionality to the global player. Now it has it's own, meaning the iOS playlist overrides Leech's active playlist when Leech goes to sleep. Meanwhile iOS preserves it's playlist even after app crashes and also has a decent shuffle algorithm, unlike the one now included in Leechtunes.
This is a big problem if you want to use a headset, car stereo, the iOS slide-up overlay, or the app itself in any order, and you listen to music a lot. Honestly if the Music app had a decent landscape view I'd be done with Leechtunes.
Since you won't be motivated by old users as purchases are lifetime, could I paypal you to fix this?
I don't typically write many reviews, but I was compelled to because I don't understand the belly-aching one star review asking for his/her 99¢ back? This app enables users to better enjoy the simplicity of their (already organized) iTunes library. All the talk of creating new playlists and the "UI being a direct reflection of already created playlists" is the point of simplicity that makes this app awesome, and this developer has done an outstanding job creating a beautiful, simple, and intuitive UI for music lovers on the go. I LOVE IT!!!
Great app for iPad in the truck
I love this app for my main interface for my music in the truck, I replaced my entire head unit with an iPad and this is my player! I get a lot of wow’s!
I would like to report that from time to time if you try and change the play list it will crash. the only thing i could find to fix it is a restart of the iPad. Doesn’t happen often but does happen.
Also the Mix, Replay and source buttons are very hard to hit. even when not driving. please make them larger. Also some times when i go to change the volume I end up skipping tracks because the Forward and Reverse is a little too sensitive.
