    This article has been imported from chorus.fm for discussion. All of the forum rules still apply.

    Federico Viticci, writing at MacStories:


    With the exception of For You (more on this below), all these sections can be turned off in the app’s settings and rearranged so that, for instance, your playlists and recently played albums are at the top of the screen, with Apple Music sections following down in the middle. Soor’s key proposition is this drastic departure from the organization of the Music app: rather than splitting the Library and For You into two separate tabs, Soor lets you mix and match both types of content in the same screen, enabling you to choose the order they’re displayed for faster access.

    This looks like something I’ll need to check out this weekend.

    Of course I come here for music stuff, but I always look forward to the news posts about tech & sports on Chorus. Thanks, Jason.

    I went ahead and downloaded this. I definitely like the customizability of the dashboard that it gives me, but some of the things he mentions as positives - particularly the smaller graphics to show more info at a time - are going to take some getting used to. It's funny he mentioned Ecoute. I used that for a while, and agree with his assessment of it. Cesium has been the best alternative I've found so far, but I'm excited to explore this one a bit more over the weekend.

    I read that as "A poor third party" lol i was like that's a strange headline. my brain fill in way too many gaps ha.
     
  5. The last 2 paragraphs really killed this for me. Also at 10 bucks it skirts just outside of impulse buy territory

    I agree. If it was $4.99 I would buy it right away just to test.

    Does it have a cast option? I use Apple Music on my iPod and Android but I don't have Apple TV or any other Apple products actually. Always been looking for a way to cast it to my Chromecast or something like that.

    It's the same options that you find in the Music app. It appears to only look for Apple TV's, AirPods, etc. That being said, I don't have a chromecast, but my guess is that since this is built of the Music API the answer is no.
