Ratings and Reviews
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!
Best music app, period
Fast. Responsive. Intuitive. Clean user interface. Feature rich. Equalizer, cross fader, etc. Multiple music folder options, inc. Apple’s. Plays flac, etc. Biggest negative. Doesn’t import Apple Music’s playlists. But can export iTunes playlist as m3u that can then be imported.
Its PC cousin enables conversion of flac to alac. So lossless files can be imported into Apple’s Music app via iTunes. But why bother? Especially since Apple provides no lossless music. This app just works great with exhaustive options!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
