Ratings and Reviews
Love this app!! One thing, however
First off, this is easily one of the best quality music players for iphone, and 90% of that lies in the beautiful parametric equalizer that can even make apple earbuds sound clean and smooth as a decent quality speaker. I don't even mind the free version at all, all the necessary features are in that imo. i literally never write reviews for apps and this is my first one, which is a testament to how muh i like it. The one thing keeping this from a 5 star review for me, however, is the fact that it scrambles my playlists or "collections" as theyre referred to here without my input and not on shuffle or anything. like, i had my itunes playlist, but when i tried to find a song when i looked in it, my songs were all over the place in the playlist. the same thing happened when i made a new collection in vox. if that gets fixed, this is easily a 5 star and will probably fully replace the stock music player for me.
So much potential...
Let first start by saying, this app is a great idea in theory. They offer truly unlimited cloud space for your music. I have almost 1.2TB of hi res FLAC files stored here and it works well. Now for the bad. You can not sort by genre. If you have duplicate tracks brought on by their terrible uploading program for the Mac, Lord rest your soul. The Mac detects them and instead of deleting them, it just hides them. This feature is supposed to be brought to the phone, but it’s not and doesn’t work. There is no way to have smart playlist, bring over existing playlists and have them match to this library. There is no Apple TV support, so you have to airplay everything. There are no smart playlists, at all. Their developers are extremely slow to implement any type of features or anything having to do with fixes. This app and service would be a DIY iTunes killer, but it’s just not there, and I don’t think it will be any time soon. The forums are filled with people asking for things like smart playlists, etc and have been for years, but is met with “It’s in the we have a beta for ____” and no one has heard and or seen this beta. Guys, please fix this and listen to us. I get that y’all are a small team, but us hard core music fans and audiophiles really know what we want, and things that would make the whole audiophile community happy as a whole.
EQ held hostage
Once upon a time, Vox was a great app. It was the only one offering a parametric EQ. But then they bundled the EQ in with their subscription service. Ugh. I’d pay $50 for the Vox app to have that. But $50 a year with a zillion features that I don’t need? Nah. That is the antiquated cable tv model everyone hates. Please - separate the app from the sub features and let those who don’t need all the cloud feature just buy the app.
UPDATE - RESPONSE TO DEVELOPER’S RESPONSE:
I appreciate the developer’s review, but my review stands. A core function of this software that you offered for free was removed and put in the subscription version. I’ve said I’d gladly pay once for a version that has the EQ. I don’t need all the other bells and whistles. Please come up with a third buying option. One that doesn’t require a subscription. Just make it a player with the EQ, as the version I have on my iOS9 devices has. I’ll pay for that. Once. And if you significantly upgrade, I’ll pay for an upgrade if I think I need it. Please. For now, I am forever locked into listening on older devices. And that’s OK, but they won’t last forever. So, I implore you to please simply move the EQ function back over the threshold to the free version. Those of us that are older, on fixed incomes, and have hearing loss need to be able to tailor the sound without feeling as if we are being held hostage to a subscription scheme.
Developer Response ,
Hi, we're working hard to find the perfect balance and to have enough resources to continue development & making our customers satisfied with price + product.
I believe you know that the work costs money. We're working on improving the capabilities of our player every day. The product may look the same from the outside (users like our design), but we did a good job of updating the internal functionality in version 3.0. We hope that loyal users appreciate our work.
Also you can always use a FREE version with account for listening to music.
