MusicFolder 2

Seven Systems Cross-Platform Media Limited
Simple, no-frills music player for "oldschool" people who have a music library based on a folder structure instead of tags / metadata.

This app is DECIDEDLY SIMPLISTIC and does NOT HAVE A LOT OF FEATURES! However, those features that it DOES have work GREAT!

IMPORTANT: You cannot use MusicFolder to play music from the regular "Music" app. Instead, you use the regular iOS "Files" app to copy your folder-based music library from your computer (or anywhere else) into MusicFolder.

- Supported file formats: mp3, mp4, m4a, aac, alac, wav, adts, ac3, aiff, aifc, caf, snd, au, sd2.
- GAPLESS PLAYBACK for all file formats.
- Straightforward playlist concept: the playlist always simply consists of all songs in the current folder and its subfolders.
- Fast interactive PLAYLIST SEARCH.
- Smart folders that show your most listened to or most recently played songs.
- GESTURE-BASED, eyes-free CONTROL: swipe up/down to shuffle, swipe left/right to skip, double-tap to play/stop.
- Interactive SCRUBBING through the current song with the realtime seek bar.
- Configurable behavior at the end of a song and on remote control events (headphones / Control Center): skip or shuffle.
- Simple music library transfer and management using the iOS Files app.
- Optional AUTOMATIC CONVERSION of newly added uncompressed file formats to AAC.
- Full remote control support for headphones and Control Center.
- Supports portrait and landscape orientation.
- Selecting a photo from your photo library will auto-generate a theme based on the photo's color structure.

IMPORTANT: The app is STRICTLY for FOLDER-BASED libraries and does NOT support ANY kind of tags, cover art, or other metadata inside files. However, for people keeping their music library organized in folders "the oldschool way" and seeking a simple, stable, gapless-capable, no-frills portable player, this app is a godsend!

What's new in version 2.3

- Smart "Most Played" folder that shows your 100 most listened to songs.
- Smart "Recently Played" folder that shows your 100 most recently listened to songs.
- Both folders also work as a playlist when opened.


- The folder hierarchy now highlights all parent folders of the currently playing song.
- Reduced battery usage.


- The playlist can once again be scrolled to the top by tapping the status bar.
- Fix erratic behaviour when a song ends after changing the active folder and the next queued song isn't in that folder or its subfolders.
