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.

Amazing Apple Music Integration

I’ve been using the stock Music app for the entire duration of my iTunes/Apple Music usage, but recently I wanted a little more leeway in terms of filtering my library to rediscover old music. I took a chance and forked over my five dollars only to discover a much more elegant and customizable Apple Music experience than what I thought I’d be buying.

I absolutely love the ability to create new sections on the Home screen, to which you can apply rules, filters, and reorder every time of item in your library. The first thing I did was make a section for weekly releases but from years past. Even though I’ve never played around with other AM clients before, I was amazed.

You can also customize the Home screen by lifting sections from AM’s For You and Discover tabs, which is amazing for putting everything you actually care about on one page. My current Home screen setup has sections for Recently Added, releases from previous years, Hot Tracks, New Releases, and Music By Mood. I don’t care much for a lot of the sections that the stock AM app has on each page, so being able to pick and choose is mind blowing.

The only problems I’ve encountered so far with this app are that you have to open the regular AM app to delete songs from your library and that when you open the default AM app, closing it resets playback in Marvis. Aside from these issues, this app is PERFECT.
