Ratings and Reviews
Cuts off last few seconds of song
Its an ok app. For the most part it does what it’s supposed to do. It has a really nice configurable interface for smaller devices where screen size is limited. For example i can use compact lists with tiny icons which makes it easier to find albums because the display can show more information.
The biggest down side is it more often than not will cutout the last few seconds of a song. It’s very annoying but less annoying than trying to do anything in the Apple Music app. The other down side is it’s inability to get the playlists from the iTunes library. But that is really more of a nice to have rather than a requirement.
Excellent replacement for the stock Music app
Foobar2000 may not be the slickest-looking or intuitive music app available on the App Store, but its customisability, speed and responsiveness make up for its aesthetic shortcomings. Since Apple changed its default Music app to prioritise streaming subscriptions and cloud-based music, it’s become more difficult to listen to one’s own carefully curated music library using the app. Music constantly returns to the main Library page if you switch apps, loses your place if you’re browsing songs by titles, and keeps pushing radio and streaming. Foobar2K acts like the good old-fashioned Music app: it remembers your place if you’re viewing songs as a list, doesn’t send you back to the home screen, lets you add custom folders, and doesn’t push streaming plans at you. And best of all, it’s completely *free of charge*.
Beautiful, but not for streamers
If you’re new (like me) into the world of audio, and all you have done was stream music, this app won’t do you any good. It only plays music you have bought on iTunes etc. If you have a large iTunes library, it’ll take a very very very long time for the app to transfer everything (I’m still waiting but that’s fine I have like 12k songs on apple music). Great format for viewing music I love it; does what apple doesn’t want to do i.e. make it easy for you to find your music. I don’t have the other complaints most people have with this app, particularly because they’re expecting the whole darn website from windows to be transported when that’s not really how apps work...totally worth the free download!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
