[ The Music Player, Advanced ]
With TapTunes, you will experience your music collection like never before. Touch, tap, drag, shake, swipe, pinch ‒ you've never been this close to your tunes!

By presenting albums visually in a random order, TapTunes brings you much closer to your music than you'd ever get by scrolling through an alphabetical list of artist names. You'll soon find yourself rediscovering old favorites and listening to those forgotten gems lurking around the edges of your music library.

After all, if a picture is worth a thousand words, why let words alone do all the talking for your music?

[ Context Switching ]
Have a long commute? If you listen to audiobooks or podcasts, TapTunes helps by making it dead simple to switch between music, audiobooks, and podcasts. You're never more than a tap away from that thrilling next chapter...or that killer guitar solo. Meanwhile, intuitive gesture controls make controlling your tunes a breeze, so you can keep your eyes on the road while driving.

[ Warning ]
You will be spoiled for other music players. Once you use TapTunes, you won't want to experience your music any other way.

Just missing 2 things but near perfect

The randomness is nice but often I would like to listen to my playlist in order. The problem I encounter with playlists is that it will only play one song then stop right there. The next song in my playlist does not auto play. I have to go back to the selection screen and select the next album. My second complaint is the 3-5 sec buffer. If you accidentally play the wrong song, you are waiting for the song to play, go full screen, then it will allow you to go back. Fixing these two things would make this the best 3rd party music app. It’s by far better than Apple’s but on it’s own, just shy of perfection for me.

Great Music App

Just a great app with a lot of flexibility to organize and display your music library. Thank you David for updating this app. I’ve been using this app for a long time and it always has worked flawless for me. I know that the AOL Play app was based on your work also and it was excellent. If a future release of TapTunes were to include Shoutcast capability I certainly wouldn’t complain :)

Update ,a year after: After a long search and trials, I found my new music player

2016/09/26: So, this is my update d review, a year and a few days after my first review - the app has been stable and work as expected.
But, I decided to lower my 5 star rating to 3, because, no basic features were added to it, over a full year, in comparison to other music players in the same league that have added much needed basic features, as, "Play Next", "Add to Playlist" and Lyrics (I don't even mention cloud integration). Which, unfortunately, don't deserve the same rank.

As a veteran and heavy iPhone user, who tried many apps, in search for the best ones. Including many music players (lately, gave up on Apple's music player, for it's lack of features, commercial bloat, and eyesore white background),
I find this music player to be one of the top in the app store with numerous customizing options, especially, the fast track search, and user-friendly controls. I'm so happy with it,i bought the stacked view option, just to contribute.
A great music player!

feature request to the developers: Please add a playlist creation with options to quickly add & reorder the tracks in them.
