What's New in Version 2.1.1
Added support for iOS 8
Absolutely a lifesaver when my main Music app got a bug and wouldn't open so I couldn't access my music besides Siri. When I got my phone fixed and could go back, I didn't want to go back! The only thing is that during the month it took for them to figure out what was wrong, I wanted to make and edit playlists, which you can't do. I also wanted to see all of my music, instead of just albums, as some of music has missing albums. I know I can search for songs, but sometimes I don't know what I'm in the mood for and just want to flip through my 700-something songs. All-in-all, however, it's a very functional app and I would definitely recommend to someone regardless of whether their main Music app is working or not. 😄
I'm so going to AirPlay my music playback with this app in landscape to some side screens during my next schoolmates reunion party!! It's the perfect and most elegant way to tell your attendances what music is playing, without disturbing the whole atmosphere.
Just a little suggestion: add a setting option to not show the status bar in landscape or horizontal interface. That'll be even more awesome!!
Thank you MacPaw, also for your beautiful CleanMuMac 3!!! ( I cannot write a review on the Mac App Store for that😅)
First things first: this is absolutely solid work. Everything works as expected, save for the settings menu, which took me a second to realize that it can only be accessed by swiping on the library screen, and then only when the phone is vertically oriented, which for me is hardly ever, since I primarily use this app in the car on landscape mode.
A request: Could we get an option in the settings to show the album art in landscape mode? (And the ability to access the settings page there too?)
I second that other user's request for animating the horizontal line in landscape mode—that'd look rad and it wouldn't disturb the clean aesthetic you guys have nailed with the design of this app.
Again: Solid, top-notch work, guys. Thanks for helping me replace Apple's crappy Music app!
