Audious - Discover Your Music
By Lukas Burgstaller
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Audious is a replacement the native music app on your iPhone and iPad with an easier and faster interface. It also features a play queue so you can choose the next song without stopping the current. Audious keeps the music playing by filling the queue with random titles if it runs short of songs.
- Gestures & Design -
It does away with buttons almost entirely, giving you intuitive gestures to control your music without having to look, like simply flicking the current song off the screen to jump to the next.
Audious displays large coverart for all your albums and presents you with songs from your iPod library you haven't listened to in a while. Simply swipe up from the bottom to access your library.
- Discover Songs -
Are there songs in your music library that you love, but you've forgotten you even have? Audious helps you rediscover those tracks by putting their covers on a shelf right in front of you. You can tap and hold almost everything to get even more options.
- Play Queue -
Do you know the moment, when you think of a song you want to listen to, but you don't want to just skip over the rest of the one you're currently listening to? Audious features a play queue, a playlist that is always playing, always filled with music, where you can simply queue any song you want to play next.
- Social -
Audious also supports scrobbling to last.fm.
What's New in Version 1.3.1
[Fix] Fixed a bug where reordering queued songs wouldn't work.
No way that this is a replacement for the native app
Why is it that all the iOS music app developers claim their app replaces the native app when theirs have a small percentage of the features of the native app?
Now, I'm no fan of the native app and have been looking for something that could allow me to easily browse my library and see albums by lists similar to Mac's iTunes 10. So far no luck.
This app is non-intuitive and like other reviewers have said, there are no FAQs or instructions. There is no list of songs per album nor is the playlist function any better than the one in the native app.
Plus, what's the benefit of eliminating control buttons? If anything, I want MORE buttons not less. Just present them legibly and in an orderly fashion. Is that too much to ask? Sure, gestures are fine but every app has them and I can't remember them all.
Sorry but this falls FAR short of replacing an already meager native music app.
Beats iPhone in built music app by a mile
Great ease of use, awesome intuitive design. Makes in built music app look like steaming pile of fetid garbage.
Graphics are good
The spent a lot of time making it look cool, but that's it. Every song I own has album art, but the app doesn't think so.
