Crashes each time I filter by album duration

Also web site has no documentation.

Not clear how to only show complete albums.

Updated rating after contact and support by developer. Usage guide would still help.

Could you email I’d love to get some more info and track down this bug.

Better and better

Finally somebody in this planet adds the option to pause once one album ends. This alone deserves a five star review. But Albums has much more awesome features than this. Besides it can randomly pick one album to play, this app now can also do whatever a usual music app does (except to look up lyrics). So it is now my default app for music.

The only downside is, maybe just me, that it does not feel randomly enough. Sometime I met the same album 2 or 3 times in a few days while I have 600+ albums in my library.

little thing

I find it hard to see bold text versus non-bold text. i turned on “button labels” in accessibility to see if anything would change. i see that the app store now highlights the button in the bottom bar that i’m currently viewing. would you please add a highlight to songs that are currently playing along with the bolded titles, etc.?

Developer Response ,

Hello! Thanks for the feedback. I’m always looking to improve the app’s accessibility. Would you mind emailing so I can get some more detail about what you’re looking for? It would be helpful to see some screenshots so I can better picture what you’re talking about.
