“Ecoute Is The Best Music Player For iOS. Period.” - MacStories.
Ecoute for iOS is an alternative player using your existing musical library. It sports a clean and elegant interface, revolves around gestures to help you control your music quickly, and integrates Twitter, Facebook, and Last.fm so you can share your favorites tracks.
It enhances your control over the music by adding more options like 'shuffle by albums', 'play next' and 'add up next'.
Moreover, Ecoute offers the ability to manage the now playing queue. Add songs on the go and reorganize your tracks with ease!
The user interface automatically switches into night mode as the brightness of the screen decreases. You can also force the night mode if the default UI doesn't fit you.
Ecoute supports AirPlay and iTunes Match. Metadata like Play counts, and last played dates are synchronised.
Available filters are Artists, Albums, Composers, Genres, Playlists, Compilations, Songs, and Audiobooks.
** IMPORTANT **:
Music.app needs to be installed for Ecoute to works properly.
- Fix a crash related to Dynamic Type
- Add Japanese localization (thanks to Mix Tobin)
Ratings and Reviews
I prefer this over the apple player tho there some dislikes about it. To turn on/off shuffle is a pain. When u play an album u are in the song list screen. From here u can hit shuffle (turn on) easy peasy. But if u want to turn off shuffle u have to go to the album art screen and select the shuffle feature u want. It just seems unintuitive to have to do this to turn shuffle off. Also the 'add to queue' feature (which I love) is a bit hit and miss when it actually works.
It's not the perfect player for me as yet.
Works great. Thank you!
A great alternative to the iOS Music app. Simplified but still has the functionality. Handy customization, such as grid or list view, and the white or black background.
I love that the artists' photos are based off of your own album artwork.
The app also correctly updates the play counts and last played dates.
For those having trouble with the app not finding your music, you need to allow the app to access your music. A pop-up appeared for me as I opened it, asking if I granted the app permission to access my music. Within a couple of seconds my music was there.
Would recommend to everybody.
Music won't play - useless
Like other reviewers here I wanted to completely remove the Apple Music app (which has recently been playing without permission during voice calls) but this app seems to require that dreadful app to be installed for this this app to work! If it wasn't a pointless rabbit hole I'd try and get a refund. Just another example of why you can't rely on 'reviews' in the main stream online media. Detail like this matters.
