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.

Love the Focus of Albums

This app is like I’m back in the record store thumbing through the albums, looking at the covers, reading liner notes and then, back at home, I’m listening to the *entire* record . . . not a playlist, not some algorithm telling me what I want to hear next or off an album in my Library. I haven’t had as much fun with an app in ages — and I’ve already subscribed to support the developer.

The UI is a tad rough and a bit clunky in parts — the reason for 4 and not 5 stars. Some actions are just not readily evident — long taps some places, not others, that sort of thing. Maybe when I get used to them my rating becomes 5 stars.

What I really love: the collection of album covers, so I can visually browse albums and choose what I want to play ... just like I did at the record store or at home. There’s some smart intelligence built in, too, like how many times I’ve listened to an album, tags so I can organize beyond A-Z and Z-A, old favorites, new discoveries (added last 10 days, 30 days ...), anniversaries (of an album’s release). Data is provided by Discogs and MusicBrainz. All that’s missing are links to Wikipedia pages (for the ultimate in today’s “liner notes”).

I’ve tried many replacement apps for Apple’s music player and none have stuck. This one just might. Big high five to developer Adam.

Just what I’ve been looking for

With the vinyl resurgence, I find myself back in the album centric mode. With the new lossless options in Apple Music I wanted to get away from iTunes Match (my digitally recorded and uploaded vinyl sides) but wanted to be able to shuffle albums. This app allows me to do that the way I want with some nice pause and sort options. I can listen the way I like without having to create new manual recordings.
