Music Info allows you to view information about songs in your library, including play count, skip count, release date, date added, album artist, composer, genre, comments, lyrics, and more.*
"Apple's Music app on macOS surfaces all kinds of information about the songs you're listening to … But for reasons unknown, that isn't the case with the iOS version of Music. But as Apple likes to say, there's an app for that."
Music Info features a clean, modern design that’s simple and efficient to use. When you open the app, if a song is playing in the Music app, its info automatically appears and updates when the song changes. You can also browse your library to select a song and view its metadata. Or get a song’s info directly in the Music app from the share sheet — it’s Music’s missing Get Info button.
New for iOS 17, you can add the Now Playing widget to your Home Screen to see info about the song currently playing in the Music app. Edit the widget to customize which song properties are visible. It's also available for StandBy on iPhone and your iPad Lock Screen.

How it works
-- The Music app, like iTunes before it, saves metadata for each song you have in your library. Music Info reveals this information that otherwise isn’t accessible on iOS and iPadOS.
-- All songs in your library can be accessed in the Music Info app, no matter if they were added via Apple Music, purchased, matched, uploaded, or otherwise synced to your device. Songs in Apple Music that haven’t been added to your library have limited information available.
-- The share sheet action is available when sharing a song in the Music app. Note that only songs that are available on Apple Music can be shared. Music Info will try to look up that song in your library which may require an internet connection. It’s possible it may not be able to find the right song, for example, if you’ve renamed it. If that is the case, you can still use the app to access its information even without an internet connection.
Things to note
-- Song metadata cannot be edited on iOS and iPadOS.
-- Music Info does not work with any third-party music services.
-- Lyrics must be added to your songs via the Music app on your Mac or iTunes on PC.
*All available metadata:
-- Album artist
-- Release date
-- Play count
-- Last played
-- Disc number

-- Date added

Ratings and Reviews
Just what I always wanted!
I have spent decades curating my metadata but could never see it in any other app before, only in iTunes.
I don’t use Apple music only my own mp3 files. It would be great if you could add the ability to edit metadata on the iPhone.
I use another app to rate songs since the Music player buries the star ratings too deep.
You could probably write to that field and others. I’d pay extra for that.
Awesome! Love that I can get the play count from within the Share Song menu when I’m playing music. Thanks for the app 👍

You’re definitely welcome, thanks for the review!
This app is so great! I love that it tells me how many times I’ve listened to a song! I missed having that feature!
