An essential add on for Apple Music

This app takes apple music from a disorganized mess and turns it into a wonderful, customizable catalog of music, more easily accessible than you could imagine. I have over 150 albums saved right now, but with tags you are able to put them into boxes that allow no one album to get lost. This flexibility has allowed me to explore more albums and genres than I otherwise would have for fear of cluttering my rigid apple music library. Being able to start an album right from the ios app without even touching apple music is wonderful and makes the whole process so much smoother. This is probably one of my favorite apps of all time...

Thank you so much for your kind words!

It's how your library on Apple Music *should* work.

I've been looking for a good solution for album-focused listening, and after much trial and error, I'm happy to have found MusicBox.

One feature I'd like to see is an option to list all artists in the sidebar, not just artists that have new music. Perhaps an option to list artists with new music first, and the rest in alphabetical below?

Thanks for your careful consideration in designing this app. It shows!

Great for curation!

If you're the kind of person who gets a lot of music suggestions, or doesn't like cluttering their library with music that friends suggest then this app is excellent.

It's a powerful app with a great user interface. The price is absolutely worth it.

My only issue is that it has a bit of a learning curve. That being said the powerful features are well implemented so it is what it is - don't let that scare you away from a great app!
