Plexamp is the answer to the question "what would happen if you gave a handful of Plex music and pixel nerds a few cocktails and free rein to create the app of their dreams?"

Plexamp is a beautiful, dedicated Plex music player with tons of goodies for audiophile purists, music curators, and music fans of all ages looking for their next aural fix.

Loudness leveling, true gapless playback, Sweet Fades™, soft transitions, a configurable preamp, a 7-band EQ, and more. Perfection for golden ears, buttery smooth touches for the rest of us. Custom pre-caching so your music keeps playing, because sometimes life brings you through tunnels.

Experience your music collection like you’ve never seen it before, with our UltraBlur backgrounds, over a dozen hypnotic visualizers, and four visual themes to satisfy every taste.

Radios built from your library and your cooler friends' collections. Travel through time, pick a style or mood, or listen album-by-album like the purist you are. Use the Mix Builder to explore and craft your perfect blend. Explore your personal charts and see what you were into last Fall or your top albums from the 60s.

Grab a few hours of your favorite playlist or stations with just a few taps. Download a custom mix or artist radio for the plane. Simple but powerful offline support for when you’re in the woods or run out of cellular data.

Powerful search. Playback activity history. Swipe-up play queue peeking. Fun artist explorations. As many settings and tweaks as our resident UXpert let us add.

Just kidding. It's a music player.

iOS 3.0.1 ,

Waited 20 years for something like this!

I’m an avid music listener and part time music producer and can say without a shadow of a doubt that this app makes it tremendously easier and convenient to store, share and play all my music from any of my iOS devices! I am finally back in control of my music library like in the old iPod days. The new era of music steaming services is destroying our ability to chose how we want to purchase and experience music in our terms. This app gives you that control back in your hands. Personally, I still and always will prefer to OWN a copy of the music I want to listen to so I will still buy CDs (sometimes digital downloads as well with no DRM) so that I can listen to it whenever and however I chose. Monthly subscriptions to music just don’t make sense to me the way I like to experience music. All the music I have purchased since high school, which I still have, is in my music library and continues to grow over time as I see fit. Make no mistake, this is the future of music, not streaming . Don’t let corporations tell you how to consume music. You have the final say in that.

Close to perfect

I was in love with Google Play Music for years and it was central to my daily life as a way to listen to my music collection across all my devices and on the go. When it closed up shop last year, I spent a long time researching my options for a replacement. I settled on Plex and the Plexamp app as my choice and have found it to be great, far better than GPM was in terms of visual UI and sound quality. However, there are a few features that don’t quite fit the high standard that the product sets in most ways. Other reviews here have mentioned the lack of repeat functionality, but I want to point out the big need for improvements in the equalizer. As I listen across multiple systems, it is necessary to use eq to get consistent sound. The eq doesn’t have presets or allow saved settings or profiles meaning that I have to manually set the eq points each time I switch systems. This seems primitive compared to the rest of the app. Hopefully this can be improved.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the review, Campfly! We definitely have some improvements in mind for the EQ, stay tuned...

Great App - CarPlay integration could be better

I have a music library of ~13,000 tracks, a mix of FLAC & MP3 ripped CDs and DRM-free digital purchases, all stored into a cheap mini-PC running the Plex server.
PlexAmp is absolutely great to access ‘my’ music on the go: good, intuitive interface, with the right balance of features to keep it simple to use.
I am dropping one star due to a (car brand) specific issue with CarPlay: some car manufacturers limit CarPlay ‘lists’ to 12 items when the car is on the move…. Understandable, this is for safety purpose, so that the driver does have to scroll through interminable lists. So when driving my Toyota (they’re not the only brand doing this), I can only select Artists from A to L (or K, if some are #), I can only select from the first 12 tracks of an album, etc. If I stop at a red light, I have access to everything…. Very frustrating! Ok, it’s not PlexAmp’s fault… but the App could be smarter and offer an option to wrap these long lists of Artists, tracks, into multi-level (nested) lists of 12-max lists length. As it is, I just revert to using my phone when driving… which is more dangerous in the end!

Sorry, but Apple also places restrictions on depth of menu navigation, which makes it quite challenging. Thank you so much for the review!
