Future of the Music App
This is what I wish the stock Music App was the whole time. Features like changing whether albums sort by artist or album title are basic and part of any music program on a computer like iTunes, but they’ve been missing from phone music apps the whole time. There are a few clear missing features such as not being able to download music, but I understand these are API issues and that’s in Apple’s hands to change. I do love the gesture controls, but they will take some getting used to. I strongly hesitated to pay $10 for an app that is just an extension of the stock Music App that I already use, but this is the first of its kind to be a 3rd party app that works with Apple Music like this, so I chose to support the developer to encourage more apps to develop like this or to help the developer keep making this one better. The price is the only reason I rate this app with 4 stars. If it were $5 or less, I would say it’s worth 5 stars. I feel like the ~$4.99-$5 price range would just make the app more accessible and encourage more people to purchase it. If it changed to $5 after I’ve already paid $10, I wouldn’t even be mad though because hopefully more people would get it and support the project.
Really Good Overall
When I first saw this app being released I fell in love with the design, especially the true black because it looks amazing on my OLED display. I took a leap of faith after reading good reviews and spent the $10 on it. I love the way this app is designed to be reminiscent of the stock Apple Music app, but apart from that, it’s very thoughtfully and beautifully designed. I love being able to see my library, Charts, “For You”, and other Apple Music Playlists on the front page. I personally am not a fan of all the tabs on the stock app so this is a breath of fresh air. The only thing that I would like to see is being able to change the accent colour and what my friends are listening to.
On the not so good side, I understand that this app is continuously being developed and therefore will have its quirks here and there. They’re not so bad that they hinder me from enjoying the app, so I will not state them. I appreciate the work being put into the app and would like to see these bugs being fixed in future updates. I’ve sent bug reports so for now I’m satisfied with it. Thank you once again to the developer for making such a good stock music app alternative.
Some upgrades / Lots of downgrades
Apple's stock music app is annoying enough that I dropped nearly $10 on this immediately. Yes, it looks much better. Yes, there's great new functionality. BUT after a few days of use I'm realizing all the things it doesn't do. Most notably, there's no quick access to the "up next" list by scrolling down from the currently playing track. In fact there's no way to see what's in the queue at all and the ability to add tracks to the "up next" queue is only available in random places. For example, long presses on songs or albums offer up no functionality. I use "up next" all the time, and it's enough to make me switch back.
It's also quite buggy in its current release. I often get stuck on the full screen track view while playing a song with no way to minimize it and browse for other music. Also, although opening up control center while playing something in Soor shows the currently playing track, actually tapping through to open the app always ends up opening the built-in Apple Music app - which makes this whole app feel like a pretty kludge and not a proper relacement.
