All information about your songs, albums, artists, playlists is read from your iOS Music Library. Any changes you make to your music library will be reflected in the Platinum app. Some changes are reflected automatically, such as playlist changes. For other changes, such as adding/removing songs, you can perform a Reload from within the Platinum app.
Please keep in mind that because Platinum uses the iOS's music library and its playlists and because certain music library actions are not available to 3rd party apps, you will not be able to perform some actions from within the Platinum app (but you can perform them from within the Music app itself if you need to). These include:
• Adding/removing songs to the library
• Adding/removing/editing/renaming playlists
• Updating album art
Please leave your feedback from within the app or via a review and let us know how you like the app and what else you'd like to see added!
- Custom Letter Index for quick access to your albums, especially handy for large music collections
- More improvements with album sorting

Ratings and Reviews
This app displays your album art beautifully, even better than iTunes the way it opens up. It took me a moment to find the controls they are located on a slide out menu on either side of the screen. There are more features to choose from on this program. The program will only accommodate what you have created in iTunes already however. You can also change the album art to larger incremental sizes! Even better than the initial display is the presentation of the album art while you are playing your music. You can open it up full size while you are playing music. This looks absolutely awesome on my 12" iPad Pro! Once I downloaded the app and gave it permission to access my my music it immediately grabbed it and opened right up...Fantastic app...I love it!!! Kudos to the developer!
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the kind words! Please try the latest update, it has a lot of improvements, including more full screen album art modes. I hope you continue enjoying the app.
Best App for Displaying Album Art
This is a wonderful app for playing music where displaying the album art is a priority. Most music apps, including Apple’s, diminish the album art and clutter up the screen with a host of other non-essentials. The Platinum Album Music Player does a terrific job of putting the album art out front, where it belongs – utilizing the full screen while playing. Would that Apple’s native Music application, or iTunes, or any other player on the market offered this at least as an option! Since they don’t, get this one – it’s made for the task.
Always been my favorite Album player
Glad this one is still around and renewed to the current system changes, with additional functionality.
Great addition to the enjoyment of your personal album library and friendly Tec support:)
