There is a whole market of iPhone and iPad apps that integrate with Apple Music for various purposes, and Marvis Pro has become one of the most popular. After the release of iOS 16 this month, Marvis Pro has been updated with some cool features, including “Metadata Builder” and a quality badge for the Now Playing screen.
For those unfamiliar, Marvis Pro works as an alternative to the official Apple Music app. It gives you access to your entire music library with all albums and playlists in the way you would expect from a full-featured music player. However, Marvis Pro goes beyond that with multiple customization options.
What’s new with Marvis Pro 8?
Now with the latest update, Marvis Pro comes with three major new features. The first is an audio quality badge on the Now Playing screen, which uses a new iOS 16 API to indicate whether the song currently playing is in Lossless or Hi-res Lossless format.
But the highlight of the Marvis Pro 8 update is definitely “Metadata Builder”. This new option allows users to choose which song metadata they want to see in the app’s Now Playing and Mini Player. You can add details such as the name of the connected audio device (for headphones and wireless speakers), the genre of the song, the composer, ratings, and more.Read:iPhone 15 “Ultra” could replace Pro Max atop the iPhone product stack in 2023
Users can even set smart conditions to show or hide metadata in specific situations. The app also lets you share a song’s metadata with others, and it has a new option to export smart rule files.
Marvis Pro is definitely one of the best apps for those who subscribe to Apple Music but don’t like Apple’s official app. It’s worth noting that the app also works with the classic iTunes library, so you don’t necessarily need an Apple Music subscription to use it.
Marvis Pro is available on the App Store for $7.99 as a one-time purchase – and it offers an additional integration with Last.fm that can be unlocked with a $4.99 in-app purchase. It works with both iPhone and iPad with iOS 15.1 or later. Of course, some features require iOS 16.Read:Logitech created an ultra-light handheld for cloud gaming
