“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'.

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.

Music.app needs to be installed for Ecoute to works properly.

None of the bloatware, all of the awesome!


I had grown frustrated by all of the bloatware apple was putting into the standard music app. The GUI has become a complete unusable mess as of 8.4, and it's been the last straw for me. This app came highly recommended in online reviews, and I can easily see why! It just plays music, and that's all it does. It does it with a clean interface, and it even features a night mode! What a sigh of relief.

EDIT: as of app version 2.5.3 there are a number of glitches that need to be addressed. Tracks are slower to start due to the app freezing up and this extends to the skip forward button as well. I have also experienced a few crashes as well. Also using the slider to move to a different time stamp in a track is sometimes glitched as well with an occasional app freeze. I have reduced my rating of the app from 5 stars to 3 stars as a result. The app is still the best designed out there, but there have been performance issues recently that will hopefully be fixed.

Great layout, need to fix playlist bug

The Voice Of Treason

Let me start by saying this is a fantastic alternative to Apples music player for the iPhone. Much easier to find and navigate through your music and it functions more like the older versions of the Apple Music app before all the unwanted changes.

My only complaint is with the playlists. I'm someone that is constantly adding/deleting playlists on my iPhone. The problem with this app is when you add a newer version of a playlist, the old version doesn't delete. I have 4 Recently Added playlists in the playlist screen as well as many duplicates of others. Please fix this bug so when a playlist is deleted from the phone it doesn't still display! Same with older versions of playlists.

Great app once setup right


I really like the app once I found the settings and tweaked the interface. Like switching to full-time night mode and turning on "on selection mode". I wish there was a settings icon in the app to find settings easier. Also wish there was the option to turn filters on and off, like composers and computations for example, or have the auto hide if none were found. Also wish it had play options in the pull up home control area for quickly accessing during incoming call. Other than that, it's a very nice and useful app to have.
