Ecoute - Beautiful Music Player
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
“Ecoute Is The Best Music Player For iOS. Period.” - MacStories.
Ecoute for iOS is an alternative player using your existing musical library. It sports a clean and elegant interface, revolves around gestures to help you control your music quickly, and integrates Twitter, Facebook, and Last.fm so you can share your favorites tracks.
It enhances your control over the music by adding more options like 'shuffle by albums', 'play next' and 'add up next', and by fetching for lyrics over the internet.
Moreover, Ecoute offers the ability to manage the now playing queue. Add songs on the go and reorganize your tracks with ease!
The user interface automatically switches into night mode as the brightness of the screen decreases. You can also force the night mode if the default UI doesn't fit you.
Ecoute supports AirPlay and iTunes Match. Metadata like Play counts, and last played dates are synchronised.
Available filters are Artists, Albums, Composers, Genres, Playlists, Compilations, Songs, and Audiobooks.
What's New in Version 2.2.5
Fixes a rare bug where the app could crash when opening the search view — Credit goes to Tasha
Am I really the first to review this app?? Unfortunately it lacks an iPad version, and most importantly for me is the navigation doesn't work well enough. I have tons of moderately disorganized music, and I have no idea what album songs are on, this makes using this player a nightmare. I have some artists that have 15 or more albums, so the only way to get to a song is search or blast through all the songs, there is no way I can find to go from artist directly into all of that artists songs, this is a huge problem when I go to an artist and there's 15 albums and I have to go into each album to locate a particular song. Groove has a much better method of handling this, but groove has its own issues. The only reason I continue to use both of these is there ability to stream my iTunes Match library.
Great music player, queue needs some work
I loved this music player app the minute I downloaded it. Visually it's great. And it has a smooth interface to match. However the queue needs work. When playing a song chosen from a playlist, adding to queue adds to the bottom of the playlist instead of generating a "up next" iTunes kind of feel. Which is what many of us users want. "Play next" works great. Also some times queue causes a pause or a skip to a completely different song. Correct these.
The update fixed a crash I was seeing. Great again.
A few tweaks I'd like to see, but overall this is much better than the stock app. This is the best alternative music player on iOS. Groove is good, but mostly for shuffling through your music. If you know what you want to play (and what you want to keep on your phone) use this app.
