1 Fatal flaw...

I love this app and have used it for years. Love the functionality, support for my playlists and the shuffle feature. The one fatal flaw it has is that every once in a while it will just stop working. You launch it, it flashes like it is opening and then hits down. The only way to fix is to uninstall, reboot and reinstall. When you uninstall you lose everything and have to download all your songs again. I have several very large compilations that have multiple gigs of files, so this is quite annoying and pisses me off to no end. I keep coming back to this app because it does what I want, the way I want it... when it doesn't crash. I am writing this review in the hopes they fix this fatal flaw. Work the problem guys!

Is this app abandoned?

I downloaded this app about three months ago, and up until about two weeks ago it worked perfectly. It allowed me to rediscover my favorite songs in unimaginable clarity through FLAC.

Then it stopped working. It would launch and immediately crash. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling (which involves re-downloading my flac library to my phone). The app worked again for a day or two, only to crash again. I uninstalled and re-installed once more—same story.

It looks like this app hasn’t been updated for about two years, so I’m guessing it’s an OS compatibility issue. I hope the developers haven’t abandoned this app, but it looks as if they have... Two years is a long time.

Just what I was looking for

Finally, I'm rid of that tiresome, worthless Apple Music app. Finally, I'm rid of the rest of Apple's marketing driven apps and have an app that does what I've always wanted: play FLAC music files. Thanks Dan Leehr, you've made my day!
