Ratings and Reviews
Modizer is really good; it's almost great. It's the best VGM app I know of for iOS. I'll break it down as concisely as possible.
It plays almost every VGM filetype, as well as mod files...and plays them well
The interface to download VGM is very easy. It's basically a browser that takes you directly to the most popular VGM sites and get tracks
It has playlists and functionality to behave like a normal media player, but.....
The playlist functionality is glitchy; it randomly duplicates items in your playlist
The random function is not very random; it heavily favors the earliest tracks in a pack, and...
The app forgets its place when you do anything that overrides the audio, like use another app. This means that on random, you end up hearing the same tracks over and over
There's a slight pause between tracks, which only matters if you're trying to loop seamlessly(for writing VGM Karaokes, for example)
It's a good app that could be exceptional with a few tweaks. I'd like to see randomization improved, including the app remembering its place in the randomized sequence when you exit temporarily. I'd also like playing tracks or albums a little simplified; the headphone/page/arrow icons are a little confusing and it's easy to hit the wrong one. Lastly, I wish the(impressive) visualizers weren't so easy to accidentally access from the "now playing" window. If these items were addressed, I'd have no problem giving this app the full 5 stars.
Supports many sound formats, very buggy
Been using this app for over a year. I love using this program for its wide range of supported formats and it's ability to easily download from various sites, however this program has many frustrating bugs that can cripple your experience. The app intermittently crashes, back button does not play previously track in random mode, random mode only plays first track in a directory of zip files, only 256 downloads are allowed at a time, app deletes your download queue if you minimize the app when not playing music, app often restarts you open another app and you are not playing music (I.e. Someone calls you while you were in the middle of browsing/downloading).
Many of these bugs have been around for quite sometime. If you are looking for an app to play a wide range of formats, this is your tool, you just have to trudge through or workaround the bugs.
Plays almost every kind of music file types under the sun. The playback/plugins are well programmed. However there is one major issue I am facing:
The app crashes if I attempt to select a music from a zipped format. Once a while it randomly crashes which I believe that it could be iOS 11 compatibility issues.
