What’s New

Version 5.0.1 users, we have some news for you that we wish weren't true.

Some of you might have noticed recently that Marvis could no longer scrobble non-library tracks for you. It's a shame to see that happen and we're truly sorry about that, but sadly it's not really in our control. Something has changed in recent iOS versions that led to recently played non-library tracks from not caching reliably in iOS' music library database.

We don't know if this was intended by Apple engineers or is it a bug, but only time will tell. We hope this gets rollbacked in future versions of iOS, but until then Marvis wouldn't be able to scrobble non-library tracks for you.

We do have a tip for you though, the songs that are part of a playlist but not library can still be scrobbled, so just in case you'd not like to add songs to the library, you can add them to a playlist and play them. To prevent playlist songs from being automatically added to the library head over to > Music > Add Playlist Songs, and disable it.

We hope this tip is helpful and we're sorry again, but we hope you understand.

As usual, this update also brings some bug fixes and improvements.

My new favorite

I've been using another music app for years, and to be honest, it's been great, and I have been (and am) very happy with it, and with its developer. And yet, I have to be honest, Marvis has completely blown me away by being all that and more. It is very nearly everything I've ever wanted, or even imagined wanting. With apologies to my other music app, Marvis has stolen my heart away.

Marvis's developer has been outstandingly responsive, working with me to help me understand all of its nuances and taking time to understand how I use it, and what I'm looking for in a music app. I didn't really "get" all that Marvis is capable of at first, and his attention to my concerns really made a world of difference in helping me get the most out of it and understand what it is capable of. I'm very grateful for that.

The one thing that stopped me, especially at first, from making a wholesale switch to Marvis was the lack of support for iPad. In my view, that's really a must-have. There is a beta that does support iPad, and that's what I've been using. Once that's generally available, honestly, this will be the new standard-bearer, as far as I'm concerned.

Closest app I know of to the original iPod music app

Unlike Apple’s current music player app and other apps that strive to emulate it, this app shows the number of songs played in a playlist along with the total number of songs. This allows the number of remaining songs to be easily calculated. This capability helps ensure that songs are not deleted or repeated, which has been a common problem with recent versions of Apple’s music app since IOS 8, which this app successfully avoids. This app also shows relatively large album art on its screen compared to more recent Apple Music player app versions. Cesium used to be my third party music player of choice up until its recent versions eliminated the ability to see the list of upcoming songs, thereby eliminating the capability of determining if songs have been skipped or repeated. Mavis is now my music player app of choice and I highly recommend it for those who long for the simplicity of the original iPod music player, which can no longer be obtained from Apple.

Amazing, what Music app should be!

This is what the Music app on iOS should be. The amount of customization options is mind blowing. I’m usually not one for excessive customization, but I think in the case of music, everyone listens to their music so differently that it just makes sense. The design, polish, function, and features here make this app an absolute must-have for music lovers. Thanks to the developer for so much time and care. I think the only thing I would change is the sidebar, which is often finicky to navigate and I think I’d rather have a customizable tab bar at the bottom in its place. But everything else is just so incredible about this app. I’d recommend it to anyone.
