Filters and search. Ecoute, which takes its name from the French for “listen,” lets you easily access and listen to your music library with filters for albums, artists, compilations, composers, genres, playlists, and songs. It even lets you listen to podcasts and audiobooks. Looking for something in particular? Just swipe down to search. Your music and audio library has never been so gorgeous.
Share, scrobble and sort. While playing a song, Ecoute lets you load its lyrics, tell your friends you’re listening to it via Facebook and Twitter, and “scrobble” it to your Last.fm account. The app also features a handy queue manager. Ecoute not only looks beautiful, but it does everything you would want a music player to do too, and then some.
What is it about?
Ecoute hooks in to your device's local music files and presents everything in a beautiful, streamlined interface that is much more appealing than Apple's own music player on iOS. View album art, filter through your music and get nice gesture-based playback controls with Ecoute.
For those who...
- It’s ideal for music fans who prefer gesture controls.
Not for those who...
- If you prefer utilizing your iDevice in landscape orientation, you’re not going to be happy to know Ecoute doesn’t support it.
Why we love it
If you’ve tired of Apple’s native music player, check out Ecoute. It’s beautifully simple, just as a music player should be.
