Anyone who has ever struggled to find music they want to listen to on their iPhone now has a solution – Easy Playlist, available for free on the App store. The purpose of the app is simple; ‘make it as easy as possible for users to find and listen to their favorite music’.
“I’ve designed the app to be as easy to use as possible,” says developer Tom Berry, “nothing is superfluous”. This has resulted in an intuitive, easy to use interface that is simple enough for first time users to understand and flexible enough to give heavier users advanced tools to shape their playlists.
The app contains a number of features that make it as easy as possible to make a playlist. Rather than manually selecting tracks one by one, users are asked to select a number of different artists, albums or genres. They can then apply advanced filters to further refine their playlists – from limiting their selections to a certain number per artist, select tracks that have been played a certain number of times, or focus on tracks that last a certain length of time.
Easy Playlist is designed with a number of different users in mind. “Anyone who has a load of music saved on their phone will love this,” says Berry, “I have so much that it’s hard to know what to listen to and the temptation has always been to hit the ‘shuffle all’ button.” The app also places strong emphasis on ‘rediscovery’. Users are encouraged to build playlists out of music that they love but haven’t listened to in a while, using the ‘last played’ filter.
Ultimately, anyone with a love of music could benefit. Simple playlists can be created in just 15 seconds, saving a significant amount of time over existing options such as the default Apple Music app. From basic to advanced needs, everyone is covered. Even better, Easy Playlist is available for free. Download from the App Store at https://itunes.apple.com/app/easy-playlist/id1109041989View Interactive Press Pack
