MusiQ is a gesture-based music player designed to let you manage the now playing queue with ease.
Enqueue songs, albums, artists, playlists, and entire genres from your music library using left-to-right and right-to-left swipe gestures, and rearrange them in the queue however you like by simply dragging!
Set a breakpoint in the queue (when repeat is off) to stop playback after a certain point and to display the amount of time remaining until the breakpoint is reached (like a sleep timer).
Preview the song that’s up next right from the player view by panning the album artwork from right-to-left, and skip to that song by releasing.
Adjust the volume in one dot increments by tapping the speaker icons on either side of the volume bar in the player view.
Browse through your music with filters for songs, albums, artists, genres, and playlists. Further refine a selected category by grouping results with the granularity desired.
The artists filter intelligently finds all songs and albums not only made by the artist, but also featuring the artist, providing a comprehensive listing, unlike many other music players.
Export saved queues directly to the native Music app (requires iOS 9.3 or later), or export them in the iTunes XML Playlist format to the document picker or to open in other apps. This file can be imported into iTunes as a native playlist or into MusiQ as a queue.
Switch between the light and dark themes with a two finger swipe up or down.
Completely usable with VoiceOver.

[FIX] Fixed bug where the Queue would become unpinned when adding or removing songs above the currently-playing song.
[FIX] Fixed bug where the navigation bar in the Queue tab would shift out of place if pulling down on the queue and quickly switching tabs. This was a weird one to track down and fix.
[FIX] Fixed bug where queues results for a song could be duplicated when searching in the Queues tab.
[FIX] Fixed bugs related to the tap-and-hold gesture in the Queues tab.

Best music app in iOS history
There are many great features in MusiQ - a simple, clean interface; quick navigation through the library with multiple views; easy addition of songs, albums and playlists to the queue; overall management of the queue and playback. But the key feature of MusiQ is its ability to manage multiple queues and switch between them, with each one remembering its playback position and shuffle status.
- I have a queue set up with quick tempo rock songs for the gym
- I have another queue set up with road trip albums
- I have another queue set up with classical for studying
- I have another queue set up with lullaby music for my grandson
With a couple of taps and swipes, I can easily switch between them *and pick up where I left off in each one*. This is the signature feature of MusiQ and what sets it apart from all other music players.
I've probably tried at least a dozen players in addition to the stock player, and they all seem to focus on form instead of function. MusiQ puts function first and still manages to be nice to look at.
And Nicolas is exactly what a developer should be - available, and open to suggestions and feedback. Well done.
Amazing UI! Even has a one at a time mode!
The one at a time mode is perfect for contra dancing and performances. I love how you can so easily add a song or playlist, or genre, or album etc. to the queue at the top or bottom with just a swipe to the right or the left. Another one of my favorite features is swiping up on the currently playing song to go straight to the lyrics. This is the easiest and most complete music player I know of.
One of the best!
I love this app. If you like to build and rearrange music queues rather than simply relying on playlists alone, then this is the app for you! Not only can you set and rearrange queues till your heart's consent but you can also create breakpoints (where music stops automatically)! If you like full control over your music then MusiQ is for you!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
