Around here, we love music players. It’s especially nice when they have a smooth look and plenty of added features. If you are going to use something other than Apple’s stock Music app, there had better be a reason for it.
Marvis Music Player has a nice design and plenty of unique user interface features that are customizable so listening to music is more than just a good-looking playback experience.
The app features seven different media view options, including songs, artists, albums, playlists, genres, composers, and album artists. You can add as many or as few options to your screen.
Navigating between views is as easy as swiping to the left or right. Or, you can tap the icon at the top of the screen. When you select a playlist, artist, album, or genre, a list of songs appears. However, the screen still shows the media view. Instead of switching to a different list, you can still scroll down or up to navigate the selected view.
The very bottom of the screen shows the currently playing song. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to see a full view of the song’s artwork, plus some additional controls, like rewind and fast forward. You can also shuffle the song, favorite it, and connect to the MusixMatch app to add the Synced Lyrics feature.
While in the full screen now playing view, swipe to the left to see the playlist. You can shuffle songs and even rearrange the order. Swipe down from the full screen to go back to the media view.
In the settings section, you can customize the view with two or three cells per row, add or remove media views, change grouping types, and replace texts of songs, artists, or albums. This last feature is good for censoring words for your kids’ sake (it only works in the Marvis app).
Overall, this is a robust listening experience with a number of useful user interface features that make it much more than just a nicer looking music player.
Marvis Music Player is available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for free. Download it in the App Store today.
