Good, but with flaws.
I love using this app for occasional usage. It does have some flaws, however. The first being not as much a programming error, but an annoyance. Unless you configure otherwise, whenever you shake your device, it shuffles. The first time I used the app, I would go to put my phone in my pocket, and the song would change, and it took me quite a while to figure out why. It would be appreciated if this could be changed in the future so this is an option, and not configured by default. Second, this will likely not bother most users, but it keeps me from using this app exclusively over the stock app. In "Nonstop" albums, where the songs flow into each other, this app breaks them apart. For example in "初音ミク Project Diva: Nonstop Album" the songs end and continue in the surrounding songs. In the stock app and in iTunes, there is no pause between the songs so it flows correctly. In Beats, there is a slight pause, and it breaks up the songs. If this could be fixed, it would be greatly appreciated.
Overall this is a wonderful app, and I will enjoy watching it mature over time.
Love the minimalistic of it
Just as the title said, the design is flawless for me. Love the theme choices, the font, the colours, and everything is very minimalistic yet it didn’t came out as boring. Though i want to point one thing for the cover art. It’s too small, maybe a little bit bigger, not necessarily twice bigger, it’ll make it much better for user immediately know what songs play through. Because from the beginning, the font has already been light n small. Bigger picture will be nice.
Then there are gestures of pinch out for sharing & volumes up and down, those two gestures sometimes get swapped, so when i want to share, it turns down or up the volumes. Also, there are some songs that keep flowing through tracks after tracks. But BEAT gives a second pause in between tracks, hence it cuts the sound for a second. I hope you can fixed that part, it’ll be great since many thinks the same.
But overall, i love this app. Been searching for a perfect replacement for Track8, and i have found it. Can’t wait for the next updates and i hope it’ll be soon. ^^
After using this app more I decided to review this app again. I now use this music app all the time and it is amazing. The only thing I wish to see added to this app is the ability to read lyrics and podcast info just like the stock music app. Then this app would be perfect but for now it is 4 stars. Also the shuffling needs fixed. Everytime I click on a song to play in a shuffled playlist, I start somewhere in the middle of the playlist or sometimes towards the end, rather than the beginning. It is very annoying because then I have to skip all the way back through my songs to whatever song is first in the playlist. Please fix this issue. Also there is a time lapse between songs. If you could make them smoothly transition from the end of one song to the beginning of the next that would be great.
