AlbumMixer - Shuffle by Album

By Michael Blakeley

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Do you miss the classic "shuffle by album" feature? This simple app brings it back! Now you can listen to your music library on shuffle, without mixing up the tracks inside a live concert, classical recording, or concept album.

Instructions:

Simply tap the button marked "Shuffle Albums". AlbumMixer will shuffle all your albums, then add the first 12 to the built-in iPod music player and start playing. You can close the app now: the music will keep going.

If the album now playing has album art, AlbumMixer will display it. Otherwise you will see the album title and artist. You can use the bottom toolbar to pause, skip to the next track, or skip to the next album. You can also rewind to the previous track or album.

In the settings, you can select the number of albums to queue. You can also select a playlist or a genre from which to shuffle. However, this is slower than shuffling everything - especially for large playlists.

Don't like what's playing? Press the "Shuffle Albums" button again.

What's New in Version 1.21

The "music only" and "local only" settings are now less restrictive. Affected playlists now appear in the filter list with a warning, but they are selectable. Empty playlists also appear with a warning, and cannot be selected.

Customer Reviews

Nice idea, but ...

I really want to like this, but there is a flaw in the randomization algorithm. The same group of about 20 albums (maybe more or less, I've never tried to count) is shuffled over and over and re-shuffling simply changes the order rather than loading a new group of albums. So if you wait long enough you just end up listening to the same things over and over again while the majority of music on your device is ignored. This is the only thing that is stopping me from using it regularly.

Yes!!!

Really missed album shuffle. This app is the perfect solution.
