A while back, Apple has opened a little more Apple Music service for third parties to integrate into their applications. With this opening, we saw sites with unofficial players that work completely with Apple Music. But why not do it with an app too? The developer @tanmays He did this and yours. Soor app is spectacular.
Soor is a new application available in the App Store. It is a music player that has full support for Apple Music and so can play any song whenever we connect to our Apple Music account. In my case, from the first day I tried, I knew I would no longer use the official application. I've been with her for several months and I reaffirm, Apple Music is much nicer with this app.
An inverted interface with the dark mode
The main peculiarity of Soor and advantage over Appel Music is its interfaceIn the end, this will not make the songs better or worse. Soor has a totally different interface from that used by Apple, much more immersive and with features and animations that make the user experience better. Each icon has an animation, there is a kind of equalizer animating the playback screen, it works based on "layers" that overlap in the application … it is best to try to check everything it brings.
But if something worth using this app is for your glorious dark mode. The application has a total of three themes, where the red orange color is the driver. However, we can modify the theme so that the predominant color is white, dark gray or pure black. The application also has numerous gestures and small details that you discover through use. For example, when you scroll up, when you reach the beginning you can automatically "press" the search button or the settings button, just by sliding the screen actually.
The other functions of Soor
The application is not only a beautiful interface, but also You have your own options, such as more accurate searches on Apple Music. There's nothing I hate more about Apple Music than how bad the content is. In Soor it is easier to filter it by album, author, title or universal. Another curious detail is that it has integration with Musixmatch, so not only shows the lyrics of the song playing, but also highlights the live part that is playing.
On the other hand, I especially liked the drag and drop gestures operationr. You can select individual lists, albums, or songs to change the playback order in the playback queue. But also by selecting these items, a number of options appear at the bottom to mark them as "like," add them to playlists or add them to the play queue, among other things.
The alternative to music that really pays off
Maybe it's because it's an app with a totally different design, maybe it's because it leaves behind the design used by Apple years ago, perhaps because of the gestures it brings … the fact is that I can not stop using Soor now that I know her. It's an application that can actually replace iOS Music, not like others that show only local or downloaded songs. Here we have a (almost total) integration with Apple Music.
Almost total because Soor has some limitations consider. Apple Music API does not allow some details, such as deleting songs from the library or viewing the "Mix: Friends" playlist (the other three custom lists). Other limitations are found in playlists, you can not change their name, modify the order of songs, or delete songs from them. In addition to not having & # 39; Mix: Friends & # 39 ;, the rest in my case is irrelevant.
Soor is available in the App Store for a total price of 10.99 euros. No in-app purchase or subscription. My recommendation is to give you a chance, if you have to put a problem is that you do not have an application for iPad.
