There is no short supply of third-party music players for iPhone and iPad. Considering most of them do little more than just look good while playing your music, it is always nice to see one that does something different.
n7Player Music Player specializes in offering a unique looking design, but it also features a few cool EQ controls and playback features to add to your music listening experience. It has been available for Android since 2012. This past week, it finally made its way to the App Store…
When you first open the app, your device’s music library will be populated into a display of band names. The images looks like the sidebar tag cloud of some blogs. Bands and artists with multiple albums appear bigger than singles. Tap on a name to see the list of available albums. Tap “Play Artist” to listen to all tracks by the selected band, or pick an album to play it.
When in the full content tag view, you can zoom in to see album art. Pinch outward to zoom in and watch the tags turn into record covers. Albums without stored artwork will just look like records. You can then tap on a specific album to listen to it.
Create a playlist by tapping on the folder icon in the lower right corner of the screen. You can add entire albums or create a customized playlist by adding individual tracks. It took me a moment to figure out how to create a custom playlist, so I’ll let you in on the secret. In the Playlist section, create a new playlist. Then tap on “Tracks” at the bottom of the screen. When you find a song you want to add, swipe from right to left on the track name to bring up the “More” tab. Tap it. Select “Add to playlist” from the available options. Then select the playlist you’d like to add it to.
To access the playback controls, tap the EQ icon in the upper right corner of the screen. You can adjust the bass and treble separately and move the audio balance from left to right. Tap the Equalization tab to access the 10-band preamp equalizer.
You can select from 21 different preset EQs designed specifically for genres like R&B, pop, dance, classical, and more. You can further tweak the EQ by dragging the virtual preamp knobs up or down. You can save your customized sound as a new preset and have a fully personalized sound for every playlist on your iPhone.
The n7player Music Player is available on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch for $3.99. You can download it in the App Store today.
