Album Flow has been updated today to version 2.0. The latest version of the music app introduces a slew of new features plus a new name. From now on, Album Flow shall be known as Album Flow Pro. If I'm not mistaken, this is already the second time the app's name was changed since it also used to be called CoverFlow HD. But no matter, it's the app's new features that are really worth noting. First and foremost, Album Flow Pro adds support for iPhone. The app was created to make up for the odd absence of Cover Flow on iPad. And now its iPhone version is making up for the iPhone's limitation of displaying Cover Flow in portrait orientation. Of course, the app's core features are carried over to the iPhone version as well. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. As shown in the video above, Album Flow Pro 2.0 also brings the following enhancements:
If you want to know more about the artist you're currently listening to, you can read a short artist bio right within the app through its integration with Last.fm. You can also discover the artist's top albums and songs. In addition, you can view similar artists on a cool 3-D sphere. Furthermore, the background of the app's interface can now be automatically set to a picture of the artist that's currently playing. And finally, Album Flow Pro can now automatically download missing cover art. Provided that the artist and album tags in your music library are all correct, there will be no more "no cover" labels that disrupt the app's Cover Flow-like animation. Album Flow Pro 2.0 is available now in the App Store for $2.99, but it's a free update for existing Album Flow users. Do you miss Cover Flow on your iPad or want it in portrait mode on your iPhone? Album Flow Pro has you covered.
