An alternative music app to listen to the albums that you've downloaded directly or synced with your iTunes library.

If you like to listen to whole albums at a time and you want to do that as easily as possible then just tap on an album cover to start listening to it immediately.

Try tapping and swiping and be pleasantly surprised by the gesture support - no fiddly little buttons.

You can also browse your music by artist, and even shuffle all albums by a single artist.

You'll love this app if you use your iPhone or iPad in the car because it's been designed with simple gestures and large touch areas.

Also great if you like to keep your iPhone or iPad in a dock next to your home sound system - the screen will stay on while it's plugged in to power if you tap on the power button of the now playing screen within the app.

Ratings and Reviews

Shines on Iphone and Ipad

This is the best player to give bezel to bezel support on the Iphone in Dark mode. The Ipad app is good but not as good as the Iphone one. As I use it primarily on my Iphone, It is not much of a problem.

No updates


There is no support for iPhone X. No updates almost year

Does NOT support iTunes Match or Apple Music


The UI looks great, but the app only shows the albums downloaded to the device, NOT your entire iTunes Match library, and NOT Apple Music in your collection unless it’s been downloaded. As a result it only shows a tiny fraction of my music library, so the app’s not useful to me.

Probably worth five stars if you have all of your music downloaded to the device, but I haven’t used the app enough to tell. Going to delete it and ask for a refund. The developer should really point out this huge limitation in the app description.
