Conclusion: excellent Patch for Apple's Music App!

Apple desperately wanted to improve their initially very practical music app and only achieved the opposite. But they won't let you install a good alternative and simply delete Apple's inadequate product like other disappointing apps.

Music lovers who also use their smartphones as jukeboxes for extensive music collections would therefore actually have to give up iPhones if Apple did not tolerate alternative user interfaces for their apps …

Music lover and software developer Mike Clay has put an ingenious user interface on top of Apple's inadequate music app so that an iPhone can also be used as a high-end music system.

If you want to enjoy and manage your music collection without superfluous bells and whistles like in the old days, you definitely need this “patch” for Apple's music app!
