Picky Music Player

Charles Joseph
“…a powerful music utility that is perfect for getting reacquainted with your favorite tunes.” — John Voorhees, MacStories.net

Featured in Macworld’s “Alternatives to Apple’s iOS Music app”, Picky is for people particular about their music, giving you full control over how you browse and listen to your albums and songs.

‣ Picky keeps your Artists and Albums lists uncluttered by hiding those with only a few songs – simply adjust the filters to taste.

‣ Queue up tracks to play later: simply swipe to the left on a song until the ‘+’ icon appears and turns solid orange, then let go to enqueue it.

‣ Use Picklists to quickly play (or enqueue) groups of songs – like playing an album without its bonus tracks.

‣ Picky lets you easily filter your Songs and Albums lists by genre (or by multiple genres). You can do things like quickly put together a mix by opening the filter, tapping on a few genres, and then closing it and tapping Shuffle.

‣ Easily sort the main Albums list or artists’ album lists with just a couple taps: by title, release date, duration, or by date added to your library.

‣ You can use the Artists and Songs filters to keep singles and one-hit-wonders tucked away, or bring them into focus when you really want to listen to them.

‣ Picky intelligently combines both grouping by artist and by album artist, so you'll always find your songs where you expect them to be. But if you prefer just one of the groupings, you can easily change that with a setting.

‣ Quickly see the list of your currently playing songs by simply swiping up in the Now Playing view.

‣ Picky is designed for iOS 13 and supports AirPlay 2, in-line headphone remotes, Dark Mode, Split View, Control Center, 3D Touch, VoiceOver, iTunes Match, and Apple Music that has been added to your collection. You can use Picky exclusively or seamlessly switch between it and the system Music app.

Picky: for listeners with refined taste.

What's new in version 3.2
Good news, everyone: Picky is ready for iOS 13!

‣ The old dark theme button is a thing of the past: Picky now syncs up its appearance to your system Dark Mode setting (great if you’re scheduling it by time of day too). I’ve also gone and updated all of the dark colours, for a sleek new look.

‣ You can now touch and hold (or 3D Touch) throughout the app to see a preview and context menu for any artist, album, or playlist.

‣ The Now Playing screen has been freshened up with some new icons.

‣ When viewing albums by date added the newest track is now always used for sorting (handy for albums with pre-release singles).

On a personal note, I’d like to thank you all for your support of Picky. This app is truly a labour of love, and I appreciate your patience during the times where I’m too busy to get an update out. Last month my family gained a new member, so I think it’s a bit of a minor miracle that I somehow managed to finish up these features while caring for a (now) one-month-old!

So I’m dedicating this app update (are app dedications a thing?) to my wonderful wife Emily and baby Wyatt :)
