All information about your songs, albums, artists, podcasts, audiobooks and playlists is taken from your iOS Music library. Any changes you make to your music library will be reflected in the Platinum app. Some changes are reflected automatically, such as playlist changes. For other changes, such as adding/removing songs, you can perform a Reload from within the Platinum app.


Please keep in mind that because Platinum uses the iOS's music library and its playlists and because certain music library actions are not available to 3rd party apps, you will not be able to perform some actions from within the Platinum app (but you can perform them from within the Music app itself if you need to). These include:

• Adding/removing songs to the library

• Adding/removing/editing/renaming playlists

• Updating album art


Please also note that Platinum plays music through the Music app and its queuing system, which does not provide certain features you may find in some other apps that have built their own queuing system. These features include:

• Adding songs to the play queue

• Adding song transition effects (e.g. crossfade)


If you must have the above features, please look elsewhere.


More features are being worked on for a future release, such as a Favorites playlist, that can be managed from within the app. It will allow you to organize and play your music in any order you want. In the meantime, you wan create a playlist in the Music app, organize it however you want to, then play it with the Platinum app with Shuffling turned off.

TIPS

  1. To open the options and actions menu, you can either tap the arrow on the left edge of the screen or swipe from the left edge of the screen. (Same for the playlist menu on the right side of the screen).

  2. If you want to play all music by one artist, just search by the artist name (or a portion of it). Then tap on the artist in the search results to play all songs by that artist.

  3. If you want to change whether what you're about to play will play ordered or shuffled, tap and hold any item (song, album, artist, podcast, audiobook or playlist) and you will get a menu of choices. You can then choose Play or Shuffle.

  4. You can tap and hold an album to pick it up. Play and Shuffle drop targets will then show up for you to drop the album in.

  5. If an album is already open and you want to play it, you can tap one of its tracks to play the whole album starting with that track.

  6. To close an album, you can either tap the down arrow on the right side of the title area, or swipe the album down from its title area.

  7. When swiping an album down to close, the Play and Shuffle drop targets will show and you can continue swiping all the way down to one of them to play or shuffle the album.
