Welcome to Albums, the app as serious about your music as you are. No algorithm-derived playlists, no shuffled songs — just albums. Kick back and enjoy your obsessively-curated library with free (and ad-free!) album shuffle. Purchase Albums Premium to go much deeper.

Reclaim the feeling of flipping through your vinyl or CD collection by scrolling through artwork on the Albums Board. Long-press to see more details or queue it up to play next. Shuffle All Albums for randomly-generated picks or browse and shuffle your library by Artist, Decade, Duration, and more.

Features include:

Albums pulls in production credits so you can see the big picture. Explore Collections based on Record Label, Producer, and more, and discover connections you never knew existed.

Celebrate album release anniversaries or throw back to albums you loved in high school with Insight Collections: groups of albums aimed at helping your library come alive.

Scour detailed listening statistics for your library as a whole, specific Collections, and individual albums. Create customizable charts for the data you care about most.

Search for, listen to, and add Apple Music albums to your library without leaving Albums. See what other albums are available from an artist right from their page.

The Release Feed on the Library tab keeps track of new and upcoming releases from artists in your library

Three widgets -- Now Playing, Collection, and Quick Action -- allow you to personalize your home screen and give you easy access to the music you love

Two-finger tap to set the mood and match the tint of the interface to the color of your current album’s artwork.

Tag albums to create custom Collections, add Quick Actions and Siri Shortcuts to easily access your favorites, and tweak your experience every step of the way with robust sorting, filtering, and settings options.

Longtime Last.FM user? Keep tracking with real-time and manual scrobbling.


Albums has support for Dynamic Type and VoiceOver

What's new in version 4.0.4
Albums 4.0.4 includes lots of random updates and bugfixes:
- Albums should now detect all library changes for users who manually sync music to their device like it’s still 2005 ;)
- There is now a Settings option to use the System font
- Non-square album art is no longer stretched into a square
- If different songs in an album have different art, the correct art per song is now displayed on the Now Playing screen
- The Search screen loads quicker and now shows the Now Playing overlay on iPhone
- The album settings screen now requires you to tap “Cancel” or “Save” before it will dismiss
- There is a new option to enable and email diagnostic logs in Settings -> Advanced
- The main grid now updates correctly if you add or delete an album
- A fix for an issue where choosing an AirPlay target could pause playback
- A fix for an issue where credits collections could become duplicated (multiple entries for the same Producer, for example). If you have duplicates, they should go away after the next library update.
- Upped the amount of time Albums will check for plays in other apps from two days ago to a week
- Scrobble Album is no longer a context menu option if you aren’t signed into
- Play counts are now updated immediately after an album finishes on the device you listened on. It still may take a day or so to sync to other devices with iCloud Music Library.
Our verdict: Great!
