Albums - album focused player

Adam Linder
Algorithm-driven playlists of songs are fine for many people, but Albums is the app for those of us with meticulously curated collections. Albums integrates with your local music and Apple Music library, allowing you to choose an album or shuffle albums by various criteria, and providing album release date, record label, and production credits, all in an interface focused on the album.

Key features include:

ALBUM SHUFFLE
Remember the days of listening to a full album, then another random full album on your iPod? Albums can shuffle albums from your full library. Ever wanted to listen to random albums from 2001? How about random albums from your “Best of the year” playlist? Albums can album shuffle by these criteria: Artist, Decade, Duration, Genre, Playlist, and Year.

ENDLESS ARTWORK
Explore your library like you're flipping through your vinyl or CD collection by scrolling through album art on the landing screen. When you find an album you want to listen to, just tap to put it on, then enjoy the edge-to-edge artwork on the Now Playing screen*

IPAD APP
Albums on iPad puts even more of your music collection at your fingertips, with a special layout highlighting your library’s album artwork. It fully supports split view and slideover.

METADATA AND CREDITS
Albums pulls in any available credits from MusicBrainz and Discogs. Along with the release date and record label, Albums can tell you who produced your favorite album, and even where it was recorded.

SIRI SHORTCUTS
Whether you’re on hour four of a long drive or just hanging out on the couch, let Siri start shuffling albums or skip to the next one

DARK MODE
Enable dark mode to let your album artwork really pop against the true black background.


*Edge-to-edge artwork available on iPhone X form factor devices, as well as iPads.

What's new in version 1.2.1
Albums 1.2.1 brings the following updates:

- Some love for the Today widget. The previous functionality where it would crash the app if you tapped it while nothing was playing has been modified. Now, if nothing is playing you'll get Shuffle All Albums, Choose By, and Shuffle By buttons. You can also now expand the widget is something is playing to get access to those buttons and change what you're listening to.
- A fix for the infuriating bug where, if the artwork was low enough resolution on the Now Playing screen, it would shrink the art work and expand the play controls so the whole Now Playing screen was comically screwed up. No more!
- You can now tap the Playback settings on the Settings screen for a more detailed description of what they do.
