Say hello

To the best musicplayer for iOS

Giving you the music experience you deserve

Fully gesture-driven, beautifully designed to the core and much, much more

Coming soon to the App Store


There are many reasons to love our app - here are just a few:

The main playback window is fully gesture-driven allowing you to use the whole display for the complete playback control.

We made the whole app use as many gestures as possible to enable you an easy navigation through the app. Furthermore we also made sure that all the buttos are big enough to tap, no matter whether you are working out or are on the move.

With a minimizable header at the bottom which is divided into three categories (browse, miniplayer and view) you can comfortably browse all your music.

It enables you to search, fully control your playback without leaving the browse view or/and change your current view.

With our easy view selector you can change the view while browsing by tapping the top part of the screen, revealing a lengthy list of all available views - no matter where you are

While enabling you to fully control your playback our fullscreen playback view does not only show your cover art in all its beauty but also adapts the colour of the elements to the most dominant colours of your current song's cover art.

Furthermore we made sure to minimize the progressbar not to steal the cover art's thunder but still giving you a big enough tappable area so you can drag the bar as easily as possible.

You have some songs with missing cover art? Don't worry, we got you covered.

We give you the option to automatically download missing images (given that you have your music correctly tagged, of course!) as well as a photo for your artists, enabling a beautiful overview of your artists.

About us

An international dream team

Lignite is an Swiss-Canadian duo who got together online to first create a nice selection of exclusive watchfaces for the Pebble smartwatch and then moved onto creating this music app.

We are music lovers and therefore are immensely passionate about the topic.

Listening to music wherever we go or whatever we do, it therefore has a high importance in our daily life. Having mainly used Apple's stock music app we were left rather frustrated when they disabled the landscape mode and started to make the app more and more cumbersome to use. So we decided to do something about it and bring our very own music app to the App Store.

Our app is optimized to be used single handedly and to display your cover art in all its glory.

We had the initial idea back in 2015 and many, many iterations and redesigns later we have come to where we are now: a beautiful app making it a joy to experience your music.

We have spent countless hours, hard work, dedication and lots of love on this app and are very proud of its outcome.

Enjoy experiencing music the way it should have been all along.
