So I have an old iPhone and realized tonight they've mutilated the music player so you can't even play all and am trying to find a decent player. Don't want to stream or download music, just play what I have. Suggestions? Normally I just pick a genre and let it play.

Clump the genre's into a playlist and then play the whole playlist. I tag songs I love as 5 stars and have a smart list that only looks for that rating so it auto updates as I tag songs in and out. That's just how I've been doing it for years.

Blech, that sounds like puking in my shoes. I'll have to break down and get an android sometime I suppose.

I have to admit I barely use the music function. I'm usually listening to Tunein or SiriusXM.

Vintage New Brunswick retardation. In the middle of the screen tap "Artists", which is the default setting, and then you should be able to figure it out from there. Image

Truly, only a _dong_box could come up with something so stupidly straightforward. Fuck I hate Apple. And thanks _dong, If I ever meet you I'll make sure to puke in your shoes.

I would have made the switch from Apple to an Android phone if it weren't for iMessage group chats.

It is time to reanimate Steve Jobs. They've lost all sense of intuitiveness with the music app.

I can't figure out how to toggle the shuffle. :why:

EDIT: All right I remember it now, but Jobs would never stand for such a design.

I have been using Apple products for years and I still don't know why the fuck anyone would want to shuffle anything.
