Marvis Pro for iOS updated with new ‘Metadata Builder’
There’s a whole market of iPhone and iPad apps that integrate with Apple Music for different purposes, and Marvis Pro has become one of the most popular. Following 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 lets you access your entire music library with all albums and playlists the way you expect from a full-featured music player. However, Marvis Pro goes above and beyond with several customization options.
What’s new with Marvis Pro 8?
Now, with its latest update, Marvis Pro comes with three important new features. The first is an audio quality badge on the Now Playing screen, which uses a new API from iOS 16 to indicate whether the currently playing song is Lossless or Hi-res Lossless.
But the highlight of the Marvis Pro 8 update is definitely “Metadata Builder”. With this new option, users can choose which metadata of a song they want to see in the now playing and mini player of the app. You can add details such as the name of the connected audio device (for headphones and wireless speakers), song genre, composer, ratings, etc.
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 ruler 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 additional integration with Last.fm that can be unlocked with a $4.99 in-app purchase. It works with both iPhone and iPad running iOS 15.1 or later. Of course, some features require iOS 16.
