App Debuts


Noteworthy new app releases and updates, handpicked by the MacStories team.


My favorite Apple Music client and music player for iPhone and iPad was updated earlier this week with a new gesture, advanced settings, and deeper integration with Apple Music. For starters, Marvis now supports a greater list of Apple Music sections such as city charts (which can be configured for your region), recently played songs from the Apple Music API, personal radio stations, genres, and radio station genres. This means that it’s now possible to further configure the main page of Marvis to make it look even more similar to the Music app’s Listen Now section. Additionally, Marvis now lets you swipe from right-to-left on items in a list (such as songs in an album or playlist) to access buttons for Play Next and Play Last (again, similar to the Music app). I love Marvis, but one thing I continue to dislike about the app is its use of a custom sidebar, particularly on iPad. In future updates to the app, I’d love to see the ‘hamburger menu’ get replaced by a native iPadOS sidebar, ideally with the ability to customize shortcuts found in there.
