‣ Last Played (Less Recent)
‣ Last Played (Recent) (formerly Last Played) metadata chooses the most recently played date from a collection's tracks, however, the new Last Played (Less Recent) selects the least recently played date.
‣ One of the use cases for this metadata is to let you create a section of albums that you want to listen to but haven't yet. So, you can add the "Last Played (Less Recent) is empty" rule, and the album will stay on the list as long as all of the album's songs haven't been played.
• Super Advanced Settings: A new settings section in Advanced Settings.
‣ When we have as many settings as there are in Marvis, it gets difficult to manage them, and name them in a way that they're concise and self-explanatory. But it's always a challenging task to correctly group settings and give them a name. Having too many settings on a single page also get overwhelming, and that's why when some of you request a setting, we don't add those to the main settings because we feel it only caters to a very small audience and will end up overwhelming others.
‣ This is why we've added Super Advanced Settings, where the settings won't necessarily cater to everyone, won't require us to worry about naming them, and won't need users to revisit too often.
‣ One of the first new settings there is "Navigation Bar Large Titles" which lets you disable large navigation bar titles.
‣ In the future, we'll add more settings to this page.
• Redesigned Add/Manage buttons.
‣ Also added keyboard shortcuts to open the add/manage pages.
• Bug Fixes and improvements.
Ratings and Reviews
Best App I’ve Purchased
My love for music (particularly heavy metal) is to the point of obsession. I’m always listening to music, building up my own collection with classics and new releases, or keeping my finger on the pulse of what my friends and the larger music community are listening to. Marvis Pro gives me all of the resources I could imagine to streamline these processes. With a little fidgeting, I was able to create a “radio station” that constantly pulls 25% from my personal library, and 75% from other playlists, such as Apple’s “Breaking Metal,” which is a good way to find new music. That’s just scratching the tip of the iceberg. I can’t wait to jump back in and figure out similar tricks for other circumstances. For example, I’m already planning on making similar stations that mix my tastes with those of friends and family, which may make long car rides a little easier!
On top of that, as someone who spends a lot of time in music streaming apps, the amount of customization options are fantastic. Being able to move every section around, enlarge, shrink, or collapse various images, and even customize the background itself with a load of options was a ton of fun and looks great! Further, having everything I could want (all playlists, albums, artists, songs, custom stations, etc) on one screen is something I can’t imagine ever going back from.
I just love this app. Well worth the price. Best app on the store, in my opinion.
My new favorite
I've been using another music app for years, and to be honest, it's been great, and I have been (and am) very happy with it, and with its developer. And yet, I have to be honest, Marvis has completely blown me away by being all that and more. It is very nearly everything I've ever wanted, or even imagined wanting. With apologies to my other music app, Marvis has stolen my heart away.
Marvis's developer has been outstandingly responsive, working with me to help me understand all of its nuances and taking time to understand how I use it, and what I'm looking for in a music app. I didn't really "get" all that Marvis is capable of at first, and his attention to my concerns really made a world of difference in helping me get the most out of it and understand what it is capable of. I'm very grateful for that.
The one thing that stopped me, especially at first, from making a wholesale switch to Marvis was the lack of support for iPad. In my view, that's really a must-have. There is a beta that does support iPad, and that's what I've been using. Once that's generally available, honestly, this will be the new standard-bearer, as far as I'm concerned.
Closest app I know of to the original iPod music app
Unlike Apple’s current music player app and other apps that strive to emulate it, this app shows the number of songs played in a playlist along with the total number of songs. This allows the number of remaining songs to be easily calculated. This capability helps ensure that songs are not deleted or repeated, which has been a common problem with recent versions of Apple’s music app since IOS 8, which this app successfully avoids. This app also shows relatively large album art on its screen compared to more recent Apple Music player app versions. Cesium used to be my third party music player of choice up until its recent versions eliminated the ability to see the list of upcoming songs, thereby eliminating the capability of determining if songs have been skipped or repeated. Mavis is now my music player app of choice and I highly recommend it for those who long for the simplicity of the original iPod music player, which can no longer be obtained from Apple.
