At its heart, Harken has been designed to make it as simple and quick as possible for you to start listening to music in your music collection. Music must be purchased with the iTunes app or synched from iTunes first.

Quickly find music by typing any part of the album title or album artist.

Rediscover your music collection by sorting by play count, date last played, or rating.

Listen to your music in random order by shuffling songs, or shuffle the order that albums are played - can be changed in settings.

Harken Lite Music Player, in addition to letting you view your music library by Album, also lets you trial all the features of the paid version of Harken For iPhone for 7 days:
- view your library by Artist, Compilations, Composers, Genres, Playlists, Podcasts and Songs;
- create playlists from any media type
- when the trial is over, you can continue choosing music by album

Customize Harken to your heart's content with options for colour theme and font, show or hide iTunes Match (cloud) items, and toggle between full-screen or unclipped cover art in the Now Playing mode. Have an iPhone 7, 8 or X, but don't like haptic feedback? That can be disabled too.

Have some feedback? Go to the settings and hit the feedback button.

If you like Harken Lite, please leave a review or tell your friends on social media. It really helps independent developers like me.

*Sync with iTunes or buy music in the iTunes app to download music to your phone first.

Best local music player there is!

For playing your devices music, this app can't be beat. Beautiful GUI, easy navigation , only the necessary features all a few taps away.

Ben, the developer, is open and receptive to feedback and will reply personally to bug reports and feature suggestions. I was happy to hear that two bugs I submitted to him are patched in an update set to hopefully release soon.

Looking forward to seeing this app grow!

Would have been perfect, but...

I downloaded this because I just want a music app that is focused on the library. I don’t need the Apple Music search features the default ios app has. I just want to listen to the songs on my own library. And I don’t understand why something as simple as sorting by song is a premium feature. That should be the default, not albums. I want to choose a specific song to listen to. I guess I need to look elsewhere for a simple, library-only music player :/
