New Music App Looks Solid

New Music App Looks Solid

The iOS 8.4 update will probably feature a pretty lengthy change log though the biggest change will probably be the enhancements coming to the Music application. If you're not familiar with the changes, here's a rundown, courtesy of Apple:

All-New Design. Music app has a beautiful new design that makes exploring your music collection easier and more fun. Personalize playlists by adding your own image and description. Enjoy stunning pictures of your favorite artists in the Artists view. Start playing an album right from the album list. The music you love is never more than a tap away.

Recently Added. Albums and playlists you’ve recently added are now at the top of your library, making it effortless to find something new to play. Simply tap play on the artwork to listen.

Streamlined iTunes Radio. Discovering music with iTunes Radio is easier than ever. You can now quickly return to your favorite stations in Recently Played. Choose from a selection of hand-curated stations in Featured Stations, or start a new one from your favorite artist or song.

New MiniPlayer. With the new MiniPlayer, you can see what’s playing and control playback while browsing your music collection. To open Now Playing, just tap on the MiniPlayer.

Improved Now Playing. Now Playing has a stunning new design that showcases your album artwork the way it was meant to be. In addition, you can begin wirelessly streaming your music using AirPlay without leaving Now Playing.

Up Next. It’s now simple to find out which songs from your library will play next — just tap the Up Next icon in Now Playing. You can even reorder, add, or skip songs whenever you like.

Global Search. You can now search from anywhere in the Music app — just tap the magnifying glass. Search results are conveniently organized to help you quickly find that perfect song. You can even start an iTunes Radio station right from Search.

We've seen the new Music app and we've also seen feedback from those testing the new app in the beta program. From everything we've seen and heard, the changes to the Music app should be extremely solid, enough to bring some people back into the fold.

These changes should also excite those of you who continue to use Apple's Music application. This is Apple's biggest update to the app in some time.

    I sure hope the new releases get rid of the humongous battery drain that 8.3 inflicts!

      I hope it does too! And hope it fixes the bug that sends the effective power text message
