Do you still use star ratings to manage your music library?

App Improves - Developer is Responsive


Since Apple has removed the functionality of rating songs from the Lock Screen, there's a need for a workaround.
There are few, if any other options to adjust the star rating from the Notification Center (NC), so this app fills a gap, and saves the user time from having to unlock thier iPhone. For that, I'm very grateful.
The app widget includes the option to rate stars from 0-5, and the Developer (after my request) recently added a 'Next Song/Skip' button!
The app sometimes doesn't work, and a workaround solution is to quit and reopen the Music App and the Music Rating Widget, in hopes that they'll start talking to each other again. I'm hoping this stability issue will be addressed and fixed in a future update.
I'm also hoping the developer will also impliment an Apple Watch app, to make it unnescessary to take one's phone out of their pocket.
Edit: Apple’s API now allows the Love/Dislike buttons in 3rd party apps. Once this is added, I won’t need any other apps to tag my music and I’ll be rating it 5+ stars.

Absurd that we need this, but thank you for providing it.


Works perfectly, both as an app and a widget. Some of us find the stars rating useful when auditioning new songs for permanent rotation in the library. Apple, of course, only cares about its new friends, not the ones who have been using iTunes since it was a pre-OS X app.

Great app


Love the app. Wish I could change, enlarge the font for the display of Artist - Song.
