[ 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
Has flaws, but is my favorite hands down.
It looks and feels great and the grid view of all your albums is great. Some people may not like it, but I love that the album order is randomized so it shows me something different when I don't know what to listen to. When I do however, the search function and recently played albums are immediately accessible. The app is generally fast and it's animations are smooth and tactile.
There aren't any make or break bugs for me, but occasionally I have to force quit to get it to work and for whatever reason the game changes your loop playback setting to what it feels like sometimes. Honestly my main issue is that I feel like I have to live with any bugs the app has forever, because I'm not sure if we're going to get another update. Please David, come back to this app, it's fantastic! I would gladly pay a small yearly subscription for it.
Great for rediscovering albums, but ...
I love the random display of album art and customizations for rediscovering albums I haven’t played in so long! But, when I tap on the cover of a song that has lyrics attached, how do I get back to the cover? I can’t dismiss the lyrics. No combination of taps or swipes gets me back to the album view. Is it a bug?
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.
