I’ve always been the kind of music fan that likes to listen to albums. I’ve never been one for picking out random songs, or putting things on repeat, or building giant playlists of things in shuffle order. I like putting on an album, sitting back, and listening front to back. That’s why I was really drawn to the iOS app, nicely named, Albums.
Albums is an album-focused music player for iOS. It is the perfect companion for music nerds who use Apple Music (or have a local library) and really love to listen to albums as a whole. They just launched version 2.0 and it’s available as free download.
The app is built for those that want to listen, specifically, to albums as a whole and be able to find them and consume them in an easy manner. In addition to offering features like album shuffle, the app also hooks into MusicBrainz and Discogs to pull in production credits, release dates, and record label. It also makes the most of the latest iOS features, like Siri Shortcuts, Dark Mode, and context menus. And, the latest update has an in-app purchase to use built in Last.fm scrobbling.
Check it out now on the App Store.
You can also follow the app on Twitter.
