Music Application for smart devices

Music Application for smart devices

Apple’s iTunes Match used to be free, and after an update years ago all the songs on my playlist I spent years adding to were erased. I've also noticed Apple constantly prompts me to subscribe to Apple Music which frustrates me because in3as happy with the free Apple Match which is now subscriber based.

 

When will Dropbox release a dedicated Dropbox music App so that Dropboxers (I should copywriter that 😎) can stream optimized audio files to replace iTunes and other subscription based music apps? I do realize there are probably work arounds but that is the prob, they are work arounds and not native Dropbox app.

 

Anyone?

Hi

 

Not sure if this answers your question, but take a look at CloudPlayer (on the Android playstore). It connects to your Dropbox (or OneDrive/Google Drive), scans for music files, downloads them locally (remember to tick the option) and done! Been using it for years and recently installed it for my wife too 🙂

 

Regards

A proper music player/library with all the standard features

I use Dropbox for a lot of things, but the largest amount of my space is for my music collection (mid-sized collection of 150k tracks)

It would be nice if Dropbox had a fully integrated media player with all the standard features:

 

  • Desktop player
  • Dedicated Mobile Music App
  • Creation of Playlists
  • Auto play one track after another
  • Rating tracks
  • Metadata editor
  • Offline sync of selected tracks/playlists to mobile device
  • Display album art
  • Display filters like genre, artist etc
  • Display lyrics (probably pulled from a 3rd party service
  • Play random albums, or tracks
  • EQ (optional)

There are 3rd party options, but none of them work well, and anyway, as a paying customer I shouldn't have to use a 3rd party app to do something as basic as listening to music

Suggest you have a look at the Cloudbeats app (IOS and Android). I recently tested lots of cloud players to replace (buggy) Apple music, and this one beats them all.

Good luck.

Is suggeste that dropbox allow users to use third-party player so we could watch full quality video

Music interface + still playing off the folder/ application

I wanted to listen some songs from dropbox in different folders
I have to wait the end of the song to change the music because if i want to browse outside the playing folder, the music stop at once !

The same if i switch application

You tube for example is possible to keep listening videos and reading something in mto a different application, dropbox should do the same, playing a song while reading in goodreader for example

This has to be a no brainer, I can see there being a slightly increased membership cost for it though!
