Ratings and Reviews

Is this an Apple Music alternative?


Not completely.
It will display lyrics for copied music, while Apple's app won't, but the major problem is it is energy hungry. Battery drained to 20% in 4 hours.

Not going to be a keeper unfortunately.

Developer Response

As already explained, keeping the screen on to display lyrics will drain your battery quick especially you have music playing too. Even an app that does not nothing but display a blank screen will drain your battery quick if the screen is kept on.
Few tips to improve your battery life (although 4 hours with the screen on and still 20%? I'm impressed!):
- Lower the brightness.
- turn on Low power mode.
- if not being used, turn off bluetooth, wifi or cell data.



Incredibly slow to change songs when swiping. Not worth the money.

iPod Mega!!!


I've been using this app for a few days whilst in the car and find it an amazing distraction-free player, particularly with the gestures and additional options. Initially, some of the controls were disrupting play (features i did not use), but with the ability to customise and also disable these controls, I rate this app very high. Obviously, for users with in-car bluetooth, voice commands may well be suited, however, the speech impaired and those who want custom controls may find this of particular interest. The auto-lock can also be disabled in the app, so that the screen stays active, making the iPhone an iPod Mega.
