DEVELOPER(S): NuageProduction

GENRE(S): Entertainment, Music

RELEASE DATE(S): October 26th, 2011

If you’re looking for a new default music player on your iPhone or iPad on top of the stock music app, then we have a new one for you. Wall of Sound is all about album art, and gives you a full grid of every album you have on your device. It really creates a beautiful view with all of the albums mashed together in a collage on your iOS device screen. Then you can tap any album to play it, and to skip songs you just need to tap another album. It’s effortless to move through and see all of your music at once, and the albums really shine on your device. It’s like having an old school jukebox mixed with the new school iPad.

The app works with all of the music stored on your device, and is only a music player rather than a music streaming app. You also have the option to link with iTunes, which gives you all of the albums of the top selling tracks for all genres mixed with your music. The app only provides 30 second previews of the iTunes tracks you don’t own, but that feature is just an extra add-on. It helps for music discovery, as the album wall navigation is superb, but you can turn off the feature too. The main focus of the app is just a new way to appreciate and play the music already stored on your iOS device. It’s a bit disappointing that the app advertises itself as an infinite jukebox as though you could play every song in iTunes for free.

Wall Of Sound (Free, Universal) is a well designed music player that makes it easy to appreciate your music. The app combines visuals and audio for a great music experience for all of the songs stored on your device. Any extra songs are 30 second previews, but you have the option to turn them off, so you only see your own music and albums. Also, it would be nice to see some form of animations or visualizer to see the albums in motion.

Wall Of Sound is worth considering, but there are amazing music player apps like Planetary and Groove that are more worth your time.
