[ The Music Player, Advanced ]
With TapTunes, you will experience your music collection like never before. Touch, tap, drag, shake, swipe, pinch ‒ you've never been this close to your tunes!
By presenting albums visually in a random order, TapTunes brings you much closer to your music than you'd ever get by scrolling through an alphabetical list of artist names. You'll soon find yourself rediscovering old favorites and listening to those forgotten gems lurking around the edges of your music library.
After all, if a picture is worth a thousand words, why let words alone do all the talking for your music?
[ Context Switching ]
Have a long commute? If you listen to audiobooks or podcasts, TapTunes helps by making it dead simple to switch between music, audiobooks, and podcasts. You're never more than a tap away from that thrilling next chapter...or that killer guitar solo. Meanwhile, intuitive gesture controls make controlling your tunes a breeze, so you can keep your eyes on the road while driving.
[ Warning ]
You will be spoiled for other music players. Once you use TapTunes, you won't want to experience your music any other way.

Ratings and Reviews
I really wanted to like this app, as it appeared to be the best alternative to the default. The concept of the different views are brilliant, if only the app's core functionality worked well. Upon selecting or switching to any song, the entire app freezes, sometimes for up to 5 seconds at a time. Don't like the next song you skipped to? Well you better be ready to tolerate the intro while the GUI is frozen. Even when a song is playing, many of the animations at the heart of user interaction are evidently choppy, like the volume control on the playing screen. This is all on a brand new iPhone 8 and persistent across reboots and reinstalls. Platform limitations like the control center shortcut are tolerable, but charging people for a non-responsive app is not.
Just missing 2 things but near perfect
The randomness is nice but often I would like to listen to my playlist in order. The problem I encounter with playlists is that it will only play one song then stop right there. The next song in my playlist does not auto play. I have to go back to the selection screen and select the next album. My second complaint is the 3-5 sec buffer. If you accidentally play the wrong song, you are waiting for the song to play, go full screen, then it will allow you to go back. Fixing these two things would make this the best 3rd party music app. It’s by far better than Apple’s but on it’s own, just shy of perfection for me.
Great Music App
Just a great app with a lot of flexibility to organize and display your music library. Thank you David for updating this app. I’ve been using this app for a long time and it always has worked flawless for me. I know that the AOL Play app was based on your work also and it was excellent. If a future release of TapTunes were to include Shoutcast capability I certainly wouldn’t complain :)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
