Smart Shuffle - Album Shuffle and More
By Spudfish Software
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Do you miss the old "Album Shuffle" on your Apple device? Here at Spudfish Software, we did, so we did something about it!
Smart Shuffle brings album shuffle back to you, randomly shuffling your music and playing it back one album at a time with songs selected in the order that the artist intended.
Version 3.0 also includes a host of new features to help you further take charge of your album collection!
PLAY ALBUMS FROM THE CLOUD
- Smart Shuffle can now access your albums in the cloud, seamlessly adding them to your selection list. Have a bad data plan or spotty internet connectivity? Just turn off this feature from the Settings app for Smart Shuffle.
ENHANCED ALBUM SELECTION
- Sort your albums by Title, Artist or Genre
- Filter the selection list to refine your selections. You can create an album playlist to match your mood by filtering on any combination of:
- Play Count
- Inclusion in one of your Playlists
- Cloud Availability
- Filter by Selected to see only the albums you have currently selected for shuffling, or those that you haven't selected yet.
- Start Album: Select the first album to play, then pick random albums thereafter.
APPLE WATCH INTERFACE
- Control the playback of your album selections on your Apple Watch. Play or pause the current album, skip to the next album, or re-play the previous album.
- Touch and hold the play/pause button for a second to request Sleep Mode
- Smart Shuffle will automatically pause after 30 minutes, an hour, or after the current album. You'll get lulled to sleep listening to your favorite albums without missing a bunch of them while asleep!
RESPONSIVE TO TOUCH EVENTS
- Double tap the screen to play/pause music
- Swipe left/right on the album art to skip to the next/previous album
- Swipe left/right on the now playing information to skip to the next/previous song
If you quit the application, your music keeps playing. Open the Music app, and your Smart Shuffle mix is retained. Pop right back into Smart Shuffle to skip albums or select new albums to mix.

What's New in Version 3.1
Greetings, Album fans!
Smart Shuffle 3.1 has a few new features and quite a few changes "under the hood".
- Sleep mode now works in the background
- Smart Shuffle keeps better track of songs played while the app is in the background
- Startup should be a bit quicker (after the first run) on slower devices
- Start Album: When selecting albums to shuffle, tap and hold on an album selection. A "pin" will appear. When you shuffle, this album will be played first, followed by random selections thereafter.
- Two new settings that you access from the "Settings" app:
- You can turn on the "Speak Next Album" feature. The name of the next album and the artist will be spoken before it is played.
- You can set "Silence Between Albums", adding from 0 to 30 seconds of quiet in between albums.
We're listening! Please continue to report problems and suggest features at our website.
Fills a need
I've tried a lot of different apps that purport to do album shuffle but they either don't work or play the same albums again and again while ignoring others. This app does what it says it will do, and does it well. If only all apps were so sensible.
More than a one trick pony
This app adds the ability shuffle by album to iPhones. It's been gaining features, though, and is now a pretty good stand-alone music player.
