Doppler is a better offline music experience for iPhone

    Looks nice. Simple interface.


    Syncs library every time I open it. No album view. Doesn't play my iTunes purchases, even the ones I have downloaded on my device.

    Not sure why the library syncing and "importing" is necessary, and I'm really not sure why it takes a minute or so to do it every time. Other audio apps that have access to the music library don't seem to have to do that, and they can access iTunes purchases as well. On initial launch, it took a couple hours to import everything. Besides the interface, there isn't very much difference between this and the Music app. In fact, it doesn't even do as much as the Music app, because it doesn't have an album view, only artists. I see no reason to recommend this to anyone.

    Ability to import music files directly from Safari with action extension🤩


    No iCloud sync and no iPad app 😒

    It is still impossible for iOS to import music files such as MP3 or podcasts directly into iTunes. Here comes Doppler with its action extension either when an audio file is already loaded or not.

Thanks for hunting @edwellbrook I have Spotify premium so I can listen to what I want offline, why switch to Doppler? 🎧

@abadesi The first version of Doppler is designed for people who don't use streaming services, so you probably wouldn't want to switch over entirely. People who use Spotify still use Doppler for listening to music not on Spotify though! In the future I'll be adding support for importing your Spotify library, so you'll have everything in one place. Cheers! 😄

@abadesi I am also a die-hard Spotify evangelist, and premium subscriber. I made the switch after a decade on iTunes and never looked back. Issue is, I spent an entire redbull-fuelled weekend having to recreate all my playlists, and even then they were incomplete thanks to tracks I'd gotten from friends, from special downloads, or unreleased recordings. I also have a lot of friends that make music, and I can't import their files in Spotify. I've been waiting for Doppler to come out, so I can finally listen to all my OG playlists, without having to spend any time uploading or transferring, AND, most importantly (and the reason I dont use Apple Music) in an app that is simple and elegant.

Any plans to automatically recognize really long audio and put it somewhere sperate? All my podcasts were imported 😅

Maybe this is completely out of the scope or concept but would you ever consider supporting dropbox? App looks great BTW!
I like your design and the user interface, the simpler the better I would say! As for me, the whole idea of music offline is totally my thing.
