The playlist tool designed especially for Apple Music subscribers: browse, play or import playlists from Spotify, YouTube and the best playlist curators across the web.

Note: You'll need a current Apple Music subscription to install Playlisty!

Much more than just the quickest way to transfer your Spotify library over to Apple Music, Playlisty is your gateway to a new world of playlists. It’s the playlist tool you’ll use again & again.

• Spotify: a few taps are all it takes to import your whole Spotify library, including playlists, mixes, “liked” tracks & albums into Apple Music. The fully interactive one-shot process ensures there are no mistakes and the whole thing is usually over in a minute or two. And Playlisty gets the detail right: want to keep your Spotify albums as Apple Music albums? No problem - Playlisty can transfer them either as albums or as a playlist - your choice. Don’t want to lose all your playlist descriptions? Don’t worry, Playlisty will keep them.

• YouTube: sign-in to see your library (including your “Liked” songs). Alternatively tell Playlisty which YouTube channels you want to follow and see the playlist feeds appear as sources in the unique Playlisty playlist browser. As always, a few taps are all it takes to save them to your library.

• Beatport (experimental feature): browse playlists from dozens of different genres and hundreds of the world’s best DJs & producers. The Playlisty browser enables you to browse artists & genres on, the home of electronic music. See something you like? Just hit “Play” and you’ll be listening to the Apple Music versions of those tracks in seconds.

• BBC Sounds: pick your favourite music genres and get access to dozens of carefully curated playlists from world-renowned DJs, refreshed daily.

• Browse and import sets by bands playing in your region. Missed a performance of a band you like? In a few seconds you can be listening to what they played.

• Siri Shortcuts: Sync favourite playlists in the background, with a single tap. Create & schedule automations to grab the latest versions of regularly updated playlists (only available on MacOS 12 or later).

• Apple Music: Ever wished you could see all those Apple Music tracks you "Loved" but didn't add to your library? Now you can, with a bit of help from Playlisty. Just request a copy of your "Apple Media Services information" from, extract the file "Apple Music Likes and Dislikes.csv" and let Playlisty do the rest!

• Also supports links (just paste them into the scratchpad), web pages (multiple formats supported), files (csv, iTunes Xml, m3u and many others supported on DropBox, iCloud or Google Drive), SoundCloud (experimental) and dozens of other apps (via the Playlisty Share Extension).

No playlist tool can ever be 100% perfect: sometimes the originating playlist just doesn’t have enough information to make a good match (yes YouTube, we’re particularly talking about you) and sometimes the track you want just isn’t there in Apple Music. However Playlisty’s sophisticated, proprietary matcher is built to get the best results for Apple Music specifically, and If there's not an exact match, Playlisty doesn't skip or substitute it without checking with you first. And Playlisty is fast: it can match & save 2,000 unique Spotify tracks in less than 2 minutes. No other playlist tool comes close.

IMPORTANT: Playlisty requires that you have an Apple Music Subscription and that you turn on "Sync Library".

A free trial mode allows you to create playlists of up to 20 tracks. An in-app purchase is available to unlock unlimited length playlists.

Feedback: Please let us know what you think. In particular, if there's a web page, app or podcast you'd like us to support in Playlisty please go to our support page and send us the details (including URL if possible). We'll do our best to add it to a future release.

One suggestion

Great app and well worth the cost of pro. One suggestion I have would to be able to remove songs when they are no longer on the source playlist. I mostly use it to move my discover weekly playlist to Apple Music but it currently appends the new songs to the playlist and doesn’t get rid of the old ones. On one hand, that’s a pretty handy option for keeping all those songs but I’d like to have a cleaner playlist too.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the feedback! What you describe is how we’d like it to work too. Unfortunately Apple only allow us to create & add to playlists - we can’t delete or rename them, and we can’t delete or move tracks inside a playlist. Hopefully Apple will remove this restriction soon.

Very slick

I had been using Tune My Music, but this is way easier. Appreciate the paid version is a good price and not a subscription

Good but strange limitation even with pro

Great UI but shortcuts are limited to playlists with 300 songs or less even with pro. I have to go through the app to sync a playlist even though it gives you an option to set up a shortcut that will fail?

You could set up an automation to sync playlists every day in the background without this limit. Really ruins it for me.

Developer Response ,

Sorry - the error message is confusing and we will fix it! It’s not our limit, unfortunately. Apple puts a hard 30 second limit on all background tasks of this kind; anything which takes longer than that gets stopped automatically. Playlisty will normally handle 300 tracks in 30s, so that’s where we currently set the limit. But we are continually looking for ways to extend this, so please watch this space!
