What’s New

Version 4.3

- Display band’s total reviews, overall average rating & total badges.
- Display year gap between this year and a band’s year of formation.
- Copy lyric with a simple tap.
- Photo viewer detects eyes in background so that the detection process is much faster and does not block the user interface.
- Upcoming album section: fixed label priorities so that a long release title does not overlap other informations.
- Some font & colour changes to clearly differentiate between full-length and other release types (demo, single, compilation…).
- Update underlying libraries to latest version & refactor code structure so that the app is less likely to crash.

Super efficient and helpful

I find myself using this app a lot more than I expected. I’m actually at a festival this weekend, and saw a guy in the audience that I could swear is in a band that I listen to semi-regularly. Immediately pull up the app, clicked on the band photo (the thumbnail enlarges, and the quality of the photos are typically great), and I was able to confirm it was him all in about 15 seconds. Of course I immediately introduce myself and tell him how much I love his latest album. Decent dude!

Does exactly what I need.

Great app, it does exactly what it advertises, which is all I need it to do, all with no ads.

It would be even cooler it integrated with spotlight so you could search straight from spotlight, and I think it would look better if the top and bottom bars were the same colour as the rest of the app instead of white, but those are just nitpicks. It's a solid app and I'm glad to have it.

The essential metal music app

I’ve been reading the reviews on metal-archives from year one, and this app has changed my life for the better. Honestly the user experience of the app is more inviting than that of the website. I’d say I use this app several times a day, because I’m always looking for stuff I haven’t heard before. Pretty much the only app I need these days
