What’s it good for?
by Anon3141526 on 2021/01/16 23:45
I can’t figure out what it good for apparently you have to buy the pro version to do anything with it.
Awesome
by Vipts93 on 2021/01/12 08:19
I have been using this for 3 years.
Redemption
by RamneekKSharma on 2021/01/11 13:08
Pro EQ works again only sample rate option ( 44.1khz , 48khz etc) are not available anymore which is not an issue. Thanks for fixing the app.
EQ works on iPad, SMB2 Win10 sharing
by HawaiiMaui on 2021/01/05 21:13
I can connect to file shares on my Win10 PC. This is amazing, since I WFH I can use my iPad to play MP3's or FLAC and not need to download files and use up my precious (paltry) 32GB of storage. [Any other app that claims SMB but hasn't been updated since 2018 won't let you authenticate with Windows. MS disabled SMB1 and the devs needed to update to SMB2 or SMB3; this app has kept up to date.] This app also has an EQ, this basically lets me use any halfway decent earphones and make them sound much better. Buying this app with EQ was much cheaper than buying high end wireless earphones. I've used EQ's for years with speakers to neutralize the room acoustics and love them with headphones too. The EQ sliders were missing on iPad but a few emails with the dev and they've got it working in the Dec 2020 build. The SMB (cloud) playback also seems less buggy, or my Wi-Fi is behaving. The app was pretty unforgiving of bad network connections, but this one hasn't crashed for hours. (Their MP3 EQ app has 3x retry options in the settings but the FLAC one doesn't.)
Good except for recent updates!
by PaulEnn on 2021/01/03 13:20
Very decent app, works well and wifi syncing is great. Was working well the last year or so, then developers made a couple of updates the last few weeks and now it freezes, crashes etc. Too bad, I was about to purchase it.
Bug
by BIG BOSS805 on 2021/01/02 19:06
Only shows 100 songs out of 110.
Best Player for Music Files
by Melle1313 on 2021/01/01 16:46
Use this to load and play music files uploaded from old cds to my IPad. Works very well. Easy to transfer files. Can play one song or an album. Very difficult to find an app that would work for me. This is it!
Where the pitch changer
by nuksebriy675 on 2020/12/29 15:16
Everything about this app is great but I miss the pitch changer don’t know why you removed it that separated this app from most clones
Nice
by mohamadrezasayadi on 2020/12/27 15:12
I like this app for easy work and nice icon and body design
Watch app?
by Ltl12450 on 2020/12/26 03:46
Love, love, love this app but can we get a watch app soon also to go with the iPhone / iPad versions? I’d love to be able to control things from my watch. Five star app if this is possible to add. Thanks in advance!
Audio quality bit rate help
by Un111KnoWn on 2020/12/25 11:38
Today when I opened the app the bit rate was 196. I changed it to 96 on accident and now have no way of changing it back. please help.
Great sound quality, but not easy to play non-streamed files
by Alius123 on 2020/12/25 04:59
For whatever reason this player only likes to cooperate with Dropbox. I downloaded a ton of music files onto iCloud that I wanted to transfer as hard files to my iPhone. I saved them as such into the Downloads folder in Flacbox, which tells you files are for offline playing, and I know it was a hard download since it took up my internal iPhone storage. But when I deleted my files from iCloud none of the songs would play. I had to upload the songs from the download folder to Dropbox to get them to play. Not a user friendly system.
Playback quality gone?
by Ακ74 on 2020/12/24 21:55
Was very happy with it for 2 years. With latest update audio quality dropped significantly. Flac sounds like 112kbps mp3. Same collection same iphone 11
Stops playing; update: uninstalling
by foucault on 2020/12/23 14:43
Update: the update made the player stop working altogether. Songs downloaded to the device won’t play at all. Full stop. Glad I didn’t impulse buy this app. Uninstalling and moving on. —- Something has broken recently where it stops playing. Used to work fine. Hope it gets fixed soon else I’ll have to use something else.
Great music player
by howelldc on 2020/12/21 21:11
Had to find a new music player since the Documents app player quit in me...love this and the graphic equalizer....thanks fir a great app! Let it stream!
Ok so far
by ozzieshort on 2020/12/20 16:32
Ok so far. Have not tried download yet
Version 3.6
by X-25_Ghost on 2020/12/19 02:32
The latest update brought back the equalizer we all loved and that is how it should stay. Knowing it’s available on the free as well as paid pro version makes me more likely to go pro in the future. This is a great alternative to the Apple Music app we get standard and makes it so we can get our music off of the net straight to the phone and play them no iTunes conversion needed.
EQ broken with last update v3.5.3
by hmansion on 2020/12/18 20:58
12/18/2020 Updating my rating from 1 to 5 stars. They appear to have fixed the EQ issues with v3.6.4. I think they have either source code versioning issues or limited testing ability, but the developers are responsive to bugs and suggestions so kudos for that! Max supported audio output sample rate has been dropped from 192 to 96kHz if that’s important to you... ********** I bought the PRO version for the manual EQ. Not only did the last update remove any ability to manually adjust EQ sliders, but now the EQ turns off after every track, even though its toggle switch is still “on”. You must toggle the EQ off, then back on again to reactivate it after EVERY TRACK! I’m surprised no one is talking about that issue - which was also a problem 2 versions or so back and was fixed briefly with v3.4 before this last update broke it again. Have written developers twice, with no response. To be fair, they seem conscientious and try to fix/improve things regularly so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Still, I’m starting to look for a new flac player...
A lot of potential but a couple dealbreakers
by Frazee1 on 2020/12/16 15:45
This app has a lot of potential and some very nice features, but two things are keeping me from purchasing and using this app. First - The audio tags do not support disc numbers. This results in multi-disc albums being sorted out of order. This is an absolute dealbreaker for me. Second - The app needs to support gapless playback. When playing live albums, having gaps during playback is extremely annoying. If these things are added, I will update my review.
Where is the EQ????
by htpartyshack on 2020/12/15 04:10
Latest update removed the manual EQ with sliders now only has presets. Major disappointment. Also disappointed as I’ve emailed developer twice with no response. Great app but please bring back the EQ!
Doesn’t let you sort DLNA music by track number
by WondrousHippo on 2020/12/14 03:46
Why can’t anybody who makes a DLNA music player for iOS be normal? I have Android and PC apps that can play from DLNA just fine, and list files by track number like anybody who cares about albums will care about. But NO, that’s not a feature here. Do I have to learn to code to make an app that doesn’t have obvious deficiencies?
No custom graphic equalizer after the recent update
by amerw001 on 2020/12/11 00:15
Major drawback with the recent update as the graphic equalizer option is removed. Started looking for a different app.
Used to be great
by The Lichwicks on 2020/12/08 04:19
It used to have a custom equalizer now it doesn’t, and without that there’s no real reason to pick this app over any other.
Used to be the best :/
by angeloistrash on 2020/12/08 02:17
Was my favorite music player for 3 years now, until recent update removed the custom equalizer settings. Is there a way to get that back? I am hearing impaired and used it to enhance frequencies i can't otherwise hear. Anyhow, I hope you are doing well and staying safe! I will be looking forward to a future update.
Update?
by k-ROZÉ on 2020/12/08 01:33
Ummm what happened to all my equalizer presets? They no longer work. Why was the equalizer option removed??? That was the whole reason why I paid for this app. Bring it back.
Where did the equalizer go?
by ShadowzeroX on 2020/12/07 00:13
There are only default equalizer presets now. That’s what I really liked about this app was the equalizer and how you can adjust it however you like. Am I missing something.
Flacbox Newest Update - BEWARE
by papj776 on 2020/12/06 23:08
What I loved about flacbox was its ability to play multiple audio formats but also to be able to customize the graphic equalizer to your preference . Now with its the newest update they’ve taken away the customization feature of the equalizer. What I once rated as 5Star I now rate 3Star.
Why does it sort tracks by name and not track number?!
by wvc42 on 2020/12/06 13:51
I just want to play music from my NAS, but this app sorts the music in alphabetical order, not by track number. I can’t find where to change this in settings. What the heck?!
less buffering in between flacs from online music
by Jayavaraman on 2020/12/01 04:07
When i first played one of my flacs from mega i would always experience buffering interrupting my music and it would not stop and now i don’t see that anymore which is a plus. Great app, but i think the UI is a little bit outdated but everything else is great!
Great app, keeps getting better!
by JAC from Texas on 2020/11/30 15:06
I’ve been using Flacbox for several years. I send flac from Mac to phone with Airdrop. The app is constantly being improved; the developer(s) are attentive to feedback and implement it well. This app is totally worth it!
Good app
by nicolar coconit on 2020/11/30 06:26
Great app
Broken update
by ecthroi on 2020/11/29 14:30
reported a bug that others here have noticed, the app crashes now and can rarely play more than a song or two at a time before it stops. had been using this app for months before, happily paid for it (despite a lack of gapless playback on albums) and has been solid until a month ago. don’t know if the dev is working on a fix, when i contacted them about it they only said to restart the phone and app, then have ignored my recent replies about it. wouldn’t suggest paying for this or any of the other apps by the same dev: Evermusic, etc.
Used to work great but latest update messed it up
by Wishingwell12 on 2020/11/28 18:11
Just like the other users are saying since the latest update can maybe play 1 or 2 songs and then the app crashes. It will make a static noise then the app shuts off. Please fix because use this app a lot and am currently looking for another app since I’ve sent two emails to developers with no answer.
Great!
by iPh0neQueen on 2020/11/25 22:31
Perfect so far!
Useful for me hope you all too!!
by Toty Montana on 2020/11/25 13:26
It more advantages entertainment, and wonderful app, I like music app
Fantastic app
by tonicshift on 2020/11/17 13:40
Fantastic. Love how it syncs with online drives. Absolutely stunning UI especially the album art view. Upgraded to pro version as well. Great work guys! Appreciate it so much!
One problem.
by DeadPhish1026 on 2020/11/14 21:47
I got this app for music I don’t have on other apps. It is the best one out there. There is one huge issue. It always changes the album cover/title, and even the music! This is so annoying and I can’t keep track. If this is a thing with the app, I would suggest have an option not to have the app automatically download title/cover. If it is not an issue with the app, it’s just me. But if this can be fixed, that would be great! Thank you, otherwise great app.
Bad Pause
by TheLastBlessing on 2020/11/13 22:56
doesn't resume any music action when a bluetooth object is turned off the. resumed, even when reconnected to the device
App has bugs
by CrashyMN on 2020/11/12 04:53
Since the latest update, audio deteriorates then app crashes. Rarely can I get through one song.
Difference vs Evermusic?
by Motorambler on 2020/11/05 18:15
What is the difference between this app and Evermusic? They look identical to me after using both for a while and even looking at all the settings for both apps.
Equalizer disabled after every song ends
by Smoke Up Johnny on 2020/11/01 23:10
Same issue as reported by another user last Friday. Must go to Settings & toggle EQ off/on to enable EQ after every song. iOS 14.1
Audio
by lilvroxx on 2020/10/31 20:43
The audio is sounding weird now
Stops playing constantly
by alejandro567 on 2020/10/31 05:08
Imported songs from files on my iPhone and when I hit play all, it stops working after 1 or 2 songs. Defeats the whole purpose of why I got this app in the first place.
Разработчик - красава.
by HugeHum on 2020/10/30 20:27
Отличное приложение. Пользуюсь почти год - всем доволен. 👍🏻
Not good
by O.brana on 2020/10/30 11:59
update is not good, interrupts playback
Fantastic app! Pro version is everything I ever wanted.
by 700 Pages on 2020/10/22 01:05
I upgraded to the pro version instantly when I realized that it is a one time payment. I so so so appreciate when developers keep the price, whatever it is, as a one time charge. Thank you so much.
Perfect audio player 👍👍👍
by YAKCMA on 2020/09/26 19:09
This player is the very powerful and good for ios👏👏👏
i know i just got this app
by Hoppits on 2020/09/22 23:17
but can you please add opus individual song artwork support its kinda annoying having none of my artwork show on my iphone but on audacious on linux it shows up just fine also yes i said individual song artwork not album artwork since most of my music dont come in the forms of albums but rather individual songs themselves
Bug = feature?
by Les Rhoda on 2020/09/04 20:18
For whatever reason, this app doesn’t care what else you’re doing. Playback continues regardless. IDK if this is a bug or feature but I love it! Its handy if you want to vlog yourself scatting ideas over beats in your car, or doing live commentary on a YouTube video...I was a lil shocked when I first found that not even the mighty iPhone Camera app would not silence it, but record it via the mic even! This tweak comes at a cost, though, as this app stays mostly off the radar when it comes to widgets, share sheets, and the action center media controls. It’s still one of the best I’ve used for FLACs, big up Flacbox!
Great
by GMX1978 on 2020/08/31 20:18
Nice very nice App
Flacbox: My Nominee For Killer App 2020
by apple.pink on 2020/08/21 07:33
Easily adding all my FLAC, pulling cover art, creating a playlist and downloading to my iPhone. Diverse connection options - fast SMB to my NAS music library plus all clouds. Been so long... many years. I’m finally just enjoying listening while making a mix. I can go back and forth without losing my file path and the music just keeps playing. Perfection. Thank you for making a music app that has a logical visual interface which manages to get out of the way of the music. “For Those About To Rock, I Salute You”
No Problems!
by Gingerly 156 on 2020/08/15 01:49
I saw previous posts, but this (80 this August) lady found no problems! Once I figured out how to download my music, it played flawlessly in car, stopping for calls and restarting afterwards. No stalling while playing a song ever. Thank you for a player that won’t twist my arm for a monthly payment 😊❤️! And an equalizer! Nice work techie!!! Ok, just one small problem, playing speed. All by itself it starts playing the song faster. Does this in the middle of the song so I have to open the app to settings, speed and tap normal speed.
New to iPhone
by chungster007 on 2020/08/10 01:43
On android, the best player imo is power amp. When I switched to iPhone, I almost returned this phone when I found out power amp wasn’t available for iPhone. That’s how good it is. When I found Flacbox, it was only after I had tried probably 90% of the players in the Apple store. This is for sure the best player in the Apple store by a mile.
Worth checking out
by eardrum_buzz on 2020/07/14 16:33
I’ve walked back my first review due to a lot of issues with SMB playback (freezing during track, freezing between tracks, etc). I don’t yet know enough about the issue to say that it’s really the app’s fault vs a configuration issue with my SMB server, but it’s impacting my ability to use this as my “go-to” player. Still, there are a ton of useful features and thoughtful design aspects here and it’s well worth checking out. Other connection types besides SMB may be less problematic.
Terrible Album art search
by HawaiiDon on 2020/07/04 11:34
Why read all the metadata and then not use it? Per track, the app does use the embedded image but then does not use that image for the album itself. Instead it uses some wrong image that some search has selected. The search result for many mainstream albums are 100% wrong. Stay away until this is addressed.
Great app but
by oneisabirdotgw on 2020/07/03 07:52
Need to fix the shuffle button; it just plays the next song in the cue which is the exact opposite of what a shuffle button should be
Audiophile player
by Gopoopsomewhere on 2020/06/27 03:01
I use HD and wave files to obtain best sound qualities. They play through Flacbox perfectly. App is easy to use. Easy to sync. Best music player on iPad!
New user
by DavidMFox on 2020/06/25 02:59
I couldn’t seem to find a free app that also played FLAC file formats for iPhone or iOS, luckily I found Flacbox! This app is awesome it plays nearly every music file format I’ve seen that is commonly used including lossless which was my main concern. You can load the music right onto the app through iTunes and it even found several of the music files associated album art and it shows up when playing the file, Great App!!!
Nice FLAC Player
by Rat Breeder on 2020/06/23 19:15
I originally used FLAC Player+, but it downloaded all songs instead of streaming from cloud. I wanted to have a FLAC player that streamed from my google drive, and this was perfect.
Almost perfect
by BrooklynBrass777 on 2020/06/18 16:30
So much is right about this app. The only request I have is for you guys to enable gapless playback between one track and the next. Some tracks are meant to play back to back with no pause. Thanks.
The best!
by Pat Bee on 2020/06/15 22:25
Seriously, the best audio player for files on google cloud
Play music from cloud storage
by Twinbot on 2020/06/09 19:35
This fixes everything for me. It’s exactly what I was looking for. The UI is nicely done and makes perfect sense. Being able to play my bejillion music files in the cloud is just a dream come true. The entire app works like a champ. Thank you so much for reading my mind and coming up with Flacbox.
Cloud playing completely broken
by twladin on 2020/06/09 15:49
I tried to use this on a Dropbox folder. This is the only reason I bought the app - to use its cloud player. It’s useless. My library is only two levels deep, organized by artist/album/tracks. All files are properly tagged with album and artist tagging. File types are all supported: flac, alac, aac, mp3, Opus. I’m using an iPhone 12 Pro. The metadata syncing never finishes. Background sync does not work at all. Even though it claims to have read the folders, it never adds most of the files. What it does read it reads sporadically. Albums are missing tracks. Most albums are ignored entirely. I’ve tried deleting and restarting sync. Tried removing and reading the Dropbox integration. Nothing works.
Great app
by eltoloc on 2020/06/04 23:56
First time I use this app and I am already in love with it. Seems to be my (music) to go app in the future.
Sort Order of Albums
by Orod2905 on 2020/06/04 16:12
They must be joking with this app. Can’t even get the song order correct when displaying albums. It’s the only upnp music player that’s doing it of all of the players I’ve tried so far.
Everything you would want in a player
by Super Cheese on 2020/05/25 14:04
I use this app to listen to podcasts and sermons that I want to have locally but not in my iTunes library. Great for managing files as it has robust cloud service interface. Since I study the material bookmark feature is awesome and works well with apple watch so you can bookmark while walking and listening. My only gripe is that I wish the developer would fix the lock screen controls to rewind and bookmark. As opposed to bookmark and fast forward.
Great app needs update
by Jean DeJardon on 2020/05/24 19:15
I love it and now I can manage my music files I download to my iPad Pro. Only thing is in slide-view the buttons get all mashed over each other and the buttons on the right side of the app don’t work. This is the problem in split view as well. Still a great app and the iPad is even more powerful with it. The creators will get my support when I see another update that fixes this.
Very good player
by Greenirani on 2020/05/19 11:17
For further updates I suggest adding Lyrics tab to the Edit ID3 Tags

by blindmike77 on 2020/04/13 20:17
Great app, love all the features. I don’t think it’s right that I would have to pay for it more than once if I have multiple devices I use it on.
Getting worse after app updated
by Silvet2019 on 2020/03/31 00:50
I already paid and now it turns into a “limited version”. Also, it doesn’t connect to my car anymore after updating

I love this app
by Slightly let down on 2020/03/11 17:40
Makes my music sound way better then iTunes. It keeps improving. I’ve had this for years now and haven’t found anything better.
???
by xAGGhostx on 2020/03/10 18:41
Why does this app delete or lose your music? Extremely frustrating.
Very awsome
by Arman.z on 2020/03/09 19:20
Excelent player very powerfull derive the flac files even 24bit high res qualities... I love it.....❤️👌🏼😘
This app is really good :)
by popi julo on 2020/03/08 02:38
The only thing that can get annoying pretty fast is if you add a song it will say that the duration is like 20 minutes when it’s really just a 2-3 minute song. Other than that this app is amazing
frustrating
by IlovePeach00 on 2020/03/04 06:33
I bought it because it worked so well. and now i have 3 or 4 duplicates of who knows how many songs. With the permission set to NO DUPLICATES. 🚮
Great app!
by Theprocaleb on 2020/03/02 03:03
Please let me rearrange icons... like bring album/artists to the front + when click on artist default show album instead of song. Also I would like to be able to hide, connect, flies, settings. Thanks!!

Does not work with Airplay 2 to Apple TV HD
by Craylola11398 on 2020/02/24 16:16
Will not stream music when connecting to Apple TV HD. It gets the spinning circle of death. My other music app streams fine from the same iPhone to the same Apple TV. I decided to give flacbox another try. I went to move my files to flacbox (from another folder on my phone) only to find out that you can’t choose a folder(s) to move to flacbox, only individual files. I have almost 60 gb of music...that would take days. Back to Neutron Player.
Great overall app
by James Tarrou on 2020/02/10 21:58
Has all of the nice features I would expect from a music player, and even a unique ability to slow down/speed up the playback. The only thing this application lacks however is a ‘cross fade’ function. I searched everywhere but there doesn’t seem to be a feature that lets the tracks fade into one another, which is a disappointment.
Very Very nice app, I’m impressed!
by Timedemon on 2020/01/26 12:15
I had major issues with the way Apple iPhone handles the metadata in music imported from a PC. I decided to use this app and give it a try. I used the WiFi Drive to transfer my music from my PC by just dragging over the entire folder. Took some time for my 20+ gigs of music to move over, but in the end, this app read the metadata correctly and even supplied album art. Sweet. I went ahead and bought the Pro version because this is the app I was looking for to do the job right!

播放离线的无损音乐,新买的铁三角耳机,以为是耳机音质太差了!后来换了Foobar200才知道是这个垃圾播放器造成的,自己下载的无损音乐,上传到离线来听,音质是出奇的差!不知道这么差为什么这么高的评分!
Perfect for my online music library
by themonarc on 2019/12/15 20:26
After using this app for a bit, supporting the developer was a no-brainer. Fantastic support for organized online libraries (mine is on google drive) and metadata.
simply fantastic

Gapless
by Bobsmoly on 2019/11/22 09:54
Needs gapless playback!
Completely useless for playing music already on your iPad
by CannotFindGoodNicknames on 2019/11/22 05:53
This app bills itself as a "player" but it's only for streaming. A player should play your music. ALL of it!!!!
Very good

But lacks instructions to learn how too operate properly
Skipping right over flac files
by Tradellio on 2019/11/15 16:22
I got it so I could actually play the flac files that Google Drive refuses to play, and when I select them in this app, it treats them the same way and just skips over it and starts playing my mp3 files. The file is not corrupt as I can download it to my phone and play it from Files app. What’s the point of a flac player that doesn’t play flac files?
An amazing app with one flaw
by zmontera on 2019/11/15 16:03
I love this app and the fact that I can upload over wifi is a huge time saver. That being said every time it updates it makes it so my iPhone doesn’t recognize it as a music player and it only plays one song at a time. The only way to fix this is to delete the app and reinstall but then that wiped my music so then I have to reupload every time. Very frustrating.
Great app but still can't stream flacs from nas
by Lordradish on 2019/11/11 02:49
I've had this app ever since I started using iPhone, because it plays flacs and I can also stream from my NAS. The big problem is that although it plays flacs that are stored on the phone, just fine, I can't get it to stream FLAC files from my NAS. As more of my files are now this type, that's becoming a bit problematic. When I contacted the developer over a year ago, I was told it was going to get fixes in an update. Contacted again a few months ago, never heard back. If I could just stream my Flacs, I'd give this 5 stars, as everything else about it is great.
Great app

EQ works on iPad, SMB2 Win10 sharing
by HawaiiMaui on 2021/01/05 21:13
I can connect to file shares on my Win10 PC. This is amazing, since I WFH I can use my iPad to play MP3's or FLAC and not need to download files and use up my precious (paltry) 32GB of storage. [Any other app that claims SMB but hasn't been updated since 2018 won't let you authenticate with Windows. MS disabled SMB1 and the devs needed to update to SMB2 or SMB3; this app has kept up to date.] This app also has an EQ, this basically lets me use any halfway decent earphones and make them sound much better. Buying this app with EQ was much cheaper than buying high end wireless earphones. I've used EQ's for years with speakers to neutralize the room acoustics and love them with headphones too. The EQ sliders were missing on iPad but a few emails with the dev and they've got it working in the Dec 2020 build. The SMB (cloud) playback also seems less buggy, or my Wi-Fi is behaving. The app was pretty unforgiving of bad network connections, but this one hasn't crashed for hours. (Their MP3 EQ app has 3x retry options in the settings but the FLAC one doesn't.)
Great app
by Ferrari550 on 2018/09/26 16:36
I have used EverMusic app for a day or two and had problems. Flacbox is the better than any other music app out there. If have any problems with it then I'll write a review, supporting your improvements on this app by give you supportive advice. Thanks great app, totally cool and quick when download is ready to play. There is one thing that needs to be fixed. When i listen to an hour long play list it seems that the buffering slows down and if there is any way you can make loud faster like it did before especially for the one hour long play list. When playing, it stalls out and pauses the play list and would like to see improvement on that. Other than that, i think this is still the best music player app out there:) Thank you
Brilliant music player
by Oyt111 on 2017/08/18 02:59
Way better than VOX with Loop and similar services. Pay Dropbox instead and have your own choosing of apps. This app has 24-bit audio support (disabled by default) and very neat library building with online tagging and album covers. And you can reach your NAS in local network via Samba as well and add files from there to your library and for offline use. No problem with displaying UTF-8 and UTF-16 chars. So no gibberish and funny looking characters in song names. Navigating thru your library could have been better organized (say you go under an artist but cannot list albums, just songs) but still the best app among what I have tried (pretty much everything in the App Store) so far.
Great app, but on issue
by Shadyelements17 on 2019/09/17 11:55
I love this app, I purchased the pro version so I can download whole albums and not just songs. The issue is when I close all my apps at night before bed to shut my phone down and give it a break, I have to redownload my albums when I wake up. Once downloaded for offline play shouldn’t they be staying downloaded? It’s no big deal but I love my albums and love to listen to them around the house somewhere but I want to be able to know I’m gonna be able to listen to them if I close out of the app and I’m out somewhere. If I’m out somewhere I don’t have WiFi and I don’t have unlimited data so I can’t just redownload my music every time I close the app. If you can fix the issue so the albums stay downloaded even upon closing the app, I will do another review and give 5 stars! 😃
Excellent MP3 player app
by Holland Daly on 2018/02/06 01:38
As a new user to iOS I was becoming very frustrated with Apple’s weak Music app and it’s need to be tethered to iTunes on your desktop if you hope to play your MP3s. I turned to the App Store for another app capable of playing mp3 files and became even more frustrated with the slew of apps that prioritize spamming ads more than anything else. Just as I about gave up I found Flacbox and it’s literally everything I ever wanted the native Music app to be. I can easily download an mp3 from a site and play it in Flacbox or access my library from my Dropbox. If I could give the Flacbox devs a tip and a big smooch I would. 5/5 bless you Flacbox.
Mega AND ogg support!
by Mr. John.com on 2017/12/18 09:12
If you have music you paid for in a mega account, and it happens to be in ogg format because most everything can play oggs while being open-source, and their not copy protected like mp3s, this app can do it. In fact I'm having a hard time finding many apps that support mega at all, and strangely, even security conscious open source mega does not play ogg files for some lame reason, even though you can stream other formats of music. So imagine my surprise when I'm just playing around in the app, no music on this new phone to even play yet, and low and behold I see the mega icon under cloud support. Vlc has cloud support, but no mega. Mega has an audio/video player, but no oggs. This can't be that rare of a situation can it? In fact I see you guys just started supporting oggs recently. So thanks devs. Open-source (ogg) and security (mega) imo, go hand in hand, maybe I'm just crazy. This is the one perfect app for both. When I finally pay for some apps in a few weeks, this will absolutely be one of them.
Flacbox: My Nominee For Killer App 2020
by apple.pink on 2020/08/21 07:33
Easily adding all my FLAC, pulling cover art, creating a playlist and downloading to my iPhone. Diverse connection options - fast SMB to my NAS music library plus all clouds. Been so long... many years. I’m finally just enjoying listening while making a mix. I can go back and forth without losing my file path and the music just keeps playing. Perfection. Thank you for making a music app that has a logical visual interface which manages to get out of the way of the music. “For Those About To Rock, I Salute You”
Great sound quality, but not easy to play non-streamed files
by Alius123 on 2020/12/25 04:59
For whatever reason this player only likes to cooperate with Dropbox. I downloaded a ton of music files onto iCloud that I wanted to transfer as hard files to my iPhone. I saved them as such into the Downloads folder in Flacbox, which tells you files are for offline playing, and I know it was a hard download since it took up my internal iPhone storage. But when I deleted my files from iCloud none of the songs would play. I had to upload the songs from the download folder to Dropbox to get them to play. Not a user friendly system.
It crashes beyond belief
by samuel444 on 2018/05/17 14:23
Because it crashes so often on my iPhone 7 Plus, I decided to remove the app, install it again and pay the fee. This way I get the latest with all bug fixes. I added all my play list from OneDrive opus file library. When I play the files, this app crashes after 20 seconds. It does it over and over and over again. Once in a while, it plays for a few minutes. But then it crashes. I give 5 stars on features and design. Zero on software quality. THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!!!
Everything you would want in a player
by Super Cheese on 2020/05/25 14:04
I use this app to listen to podcasts and sermons that I want to have locally but not in my iTunes library. Great for managing files as it has robust cloud service interface. Since I study the material bookmark feature is awesome and works well with apple watch so you can bookmark while walking and listening. My only gripe is that I wish the developer would fix the lock screen controls to rewind and bookmark. As opposed to bookmark and fast forward.
No Problems!
by Gingerly 156 on 2020/08/15 01:49
I saw previous posts, but this (80 this August) lady found no problems! Once I figured out how to download my music, it played flawlessly in car, stopping for calls and restarting afterwards. No stalling while playing a song ever. Thank you for a player that won’t twist my arm for a monthly payment 😊❤️! And an equalizer! Nice work techie!!! Ok, just one small problem, playing speed. All by itself it starts playing the song faster. Does this in the middle of the song so I have to open the app to settings, speed and tap normal speed.
Great app but still can't stream flacs from nas
by Lordradish on 2019/11/11 02:49
I've had this app ever since I started using iPhone, because it plays flacs and I can also stream from my NAS. The big problem is that although it plays flacs that are stored on the phone, just fine, I can't get it to stream FLAC files from my NAS. As more of my files are now this type, that's becoming a bit problematic. When I contacted the developer over a year ago, I was told it was going to get fixes in an update.

So... about locally saved music
by A190up on 2018/10/09 12:58
I found this app many years ago and have been using it ever since. I love it. I suggest it to others. I am not a fan of streaming, and over the years it was the best app I had found for playing music saved to your device without streaming. Up until it now. Before the update, I could would open the app and just play songs. I could select music by genre, artist, or my entire collection of songs by tapping a tab at the top of my screen corresponding to how I wanted to listen to my stuff. The new update seems to shove “accounts” down your throat, and there seems to be no way to add music saved on my device to the music library. Whereas now I have to drill down three menus deep in the UI to get to locally saved music because there now seems to be no way to add it to the one tap music library. Maybe this was an oversight, but it seems kind of crazy. I love the app, don’t ever go away, but can these issues be remedied? Thanks. 😬
Very Very nice app, I’m impressed!
by Timedemon on 2020/01/26 12:15
I had major issues with the way Apple iPhone handles the metadata in music imported from a PC. I decided to use this app and give it a try. I used the WiFi Drive to transfer my music from my PC by just dragging over the entire folder. Took some time for my 20+ gigs of music to move over, but in the end, this app read the metadata correctly and even supplied album art. Sweet. I went ahead and bought the Pro version because this is the app I was looking for to do the job right!
New user
by DavidMFox on 2020/06/25 02:59
I couldn’t seem to find a free app that also played FLAC file formats for iPhone or iOS, luckily I found Flacbox! This app is awesome it plays nearly every music file format I’ve seen that is commonly used including lossless which was my main concern. You can load the music right onto the app through iTunes and it even found several of the music files associated album art and it shows up when playing the file, Great App!!!
Cloud playing completely broken
by twladin on 2020/06/09 15:49
I tried to use this on a Dropbox folder. This is the only reason I bought the app - to use its cloud player. It’s useless. My library is only two levels deep, organized by artist/album/tracks. All files are properly tagged with album and artist tagging. File types are all supported: flac, alac, aac, mp3, Opus. I’m using an iPhone 12 Pro. The metadata syncing never finishes. Background sync does not work at all. Even though it claims to have read the folders, it never adds most of the files. What it does read it reads sporadically. Albums are missing tracks. Most albums are ignored entirely. I’ve tried deleting and restarting sync. Tried removing and reading the Dropbox integration. Nothing works.
Really a great app.
by Coopervery on 2018/06/30 13:46
I have been looking for a good, no nonsense mp3 player/app for my large collection of mp3 music and flacs, and now, at last, I have found it. This app connects seamlessly to Dropbox and many other sources, allows you to selectively download your music for offline listening. Includes standard features such as playlists, etc. and works great and so far, with no technical issues at all. There is also a streaming device which I have not tried yet. Great app!
(Update) Fixed! No airplaying flag files to Apple TV
by IKNYC on 2017/06/28 03:22
At last airplay issue is fixed! Now I can give you 5 stars. Thanks for solving the issue. I have 800 GB music in Google drive in flac format. I airplay music from my iPhone to my home theater through Apple TV. I've been enjoying this app like this for a week and I liked its sound quality with equalizer. But after this update, airplay doesn't work anymore. It shows the airplay icon and when I choose Apple TV, it keeps trying to load the music forever (circular arrow keeps turning). When I turn off airplay, I can hear the music from my iPhone. Now I'm back to my other favorite app, "Cloudbeats", which is much more stable and UI is better. Flacbox is better in sound quality with equalizer and the automatic artwork download is great. But if it cannot airplay, it's useless to me.
Great overall app
by James Tarrou on 2020/02/10 21:58
Has all of the nice features I would expect from a music player, and even a unique ability to slow down/speed up the playback. The only thing this application lacks however is a ‘cross fade’ function. I searched everywhere but there doesn’t seem to be a feature that lets the tracks fade into one another, which is a disappointment.
Worth checking out
by eardrum_buzz on 2020/07/14 16:33
I’ve walked back my first review due to a lot of issues with SMB playback (freezing during track, freezing between tracks, etc). I don’t yet know enough about the issue to say that it’s really the app’s fault vs a configuration issue with my SMB server, but it’s impacting my ability to use this as my “go-to” player. Still, there are a ton of useful features and thoughtful design aspects here and it’s well worth checking out. Other connection types besides SMB may be less problematic.
One problem.
by DeadPhish1026 on 2020/11/14 21:47
I got this app for music I don’t have on other apps. It is the best one out there. There is one huge issue. It always changes the album cover/title, and even the music! This is so annoying and I can’t keep track. If this is a thing with the app, I would suggest have an option not to have the app automatically download title/cover. If it is not an issue with the app, it’s just me. But if this can be fixed, that would be great! Thank you, otherwise great app.
Version 3.6
by X-25_Ghost on 2020/12/19 02:32
The latest update brought back the equalizer we all loved and that is how it should stay. Knowing it’s available on the free as well as paid pro version makes me more likely to go pro in the future. This is a great alternative to the Apple Music app we get standard and makes it so we can get our music off of the net straight to the phone and play them no iTunes conversion needed.
One problem, maybe two
by Sayonara Bye on 2018/11/12 02:31
I used FLACbox a few versions back. Everything was fine until an update allowed for linking of online storage accounts. I couldn’t add songs because I didn’t have cloud storage that I put my music on, I synced and downloaded my songs using Itunes. The app was unusable and I uninstalled. Later I gave in and put all my FLAC files on Google Drive. I have all my FLAC files separated from my MP3 and I’m ready to transfer. But the app developer wishes to screw me over because I am not allowed transfer that FOLDER of music WITHOUT PAYING. Instead, I can only transfer my songs for offline listening FILE BY FILE, downloading one at a time.
The free version was good until today
by Jthacool on 2018/09/19 20:55
Guess the developer is finally selling out, I think 24-bit audio support is now reserved for the paid version (it used to be on the free version), wouldn’t know though because I’m not buying it. Oh yea beware of the ads because they just got more aggressive with this update, basically don’t even bother with this app unless you want to pay the $3 for the full version. I have one more problem, even if your files have their own album artwork in the metadata the app will still use low quality versions from the internet.
Flacbox -VS- VOX
by Sarcalast on 2018/08/29 23:33
Flacbox: - support for obscure formats: .ogg, MEGA, etc... - supports Onedrive, Dropbox, MEGA, 10+ more drives - Automatic sync - Edit Tags - Open in... Feature - Sort by genre - If app crashes, it will save your song progress and immediately play when opened again. Not paused. VOX: - no pauses between songs - Radio Conclusion: If you don't want to deal with a computer, Flacbox is the BEST/only option for automatic syncing of mp3s and FLAC. The extra options also giveore freedom of playing to Flacbox. However, if you absolutely need seem less transitions between songs, go with VOX. Best of Both Worlds: I sync with onedrive on Flacbox and use the open-in feature to transfer music to VOX. Because... I need seamless transitions! All other FLAC based music players pale in comparison!
Wonderful app for playing flac files
by yupikwolf87 on 2018/11/16 17:19
I have tried a million apps it seems to play flac files on my iPhone. I’ve been using Flacbox for awhile now and it has answered most of the things I want a music app to do. Only problem I have is that the wifi drive switches off and doesn’t seem to run in the background which is a pain when doing large downloads
Where’s support?
by 50ish Dude on 2019/03/16 05:05
I initially used the app to download about 2000 songs from OneDrive and it played fine on my iPhone 7Plus 256 gb. It also played from OneDrive a well. I decided to remove the songs and use my iPad to play the songs from OneDrive. The songs show in the Music Library file “Songs” and even waiting overnight will not play any songs. I have the newest iPad. Same problem with the iPhone. I have written the dev twice with no reply. Once through the contact option in the app store and once on their website. This is sad because when it did work it was a 5 star app. I dislike writing bad reviews.
Awesome!!
by Andy143candy on 2018/11/11 07:08
I feel like none of you guys give credit to the people that made this app! You can download SO MANY SONGS and make the volume louder! You can listen to the songs offline unlike other apps. You can also put a passcode so no one can snoop around your music. BEST APP OUT THERE!! There is some ads but overall the quality of the app is good. Some crashes here and there but there’s not a lot!❤️
My Search is Over
by jaysolution on 2018/05/13 17:41
I just wanted a well designed music play that I could add music to without iTunes, and this delivered. I don't have to open up a web browser to upload music. I can authenticate directly into my Synology and stream my music or download it to my phone. Add the fact that it is pleasing to the eye and logical to use, and we have a flawless music player in our mist.
Flacbox
by nick82171188 on 2019/05/07 03:30
I was amazed when I got the app. Only one issue occured after a while using it, a few days ago all of a sudden all the album covers disappeared. I reloaded the library and was able to see covers as they were reloaded but as soon as the process finished, all the photos were gone. So please help if you can 😄 But, still 5 stars the app is amazing!
Best looking music player but 2 issues prevent 5 star rating!
by dharmaboy1 on 2018/03/07 05:39
To dev, great job on the visual asthetics of this app! Two issues I'm having would allow me to make it perfect. 1. Allow us to import playlists from iTunes/Apple Music Player. 2. Fix the issue with the controls on some BT headphones (sometimes they can pause/play & sometimes not at all). Otherwise, my go-to Music App!
Only one word needed: AWESOME
by IBCotts on 2017/08/21 14:01
After re-ripping everything from lossy to lossless format, I needed an app that did two things: 1) played lossless formats and 2) allowed me to stream these files across my home network (since my 16gb phone isn't going to be very effective with close to a terabyte of music files). This app does both of these things flawlessly. I'm amazed that the app is free as I would have happily paid for this app based on how well it does what it was intended to do. The interface is very intuitive and you're listening to music within a minute of installing the app. The equalizer, including preamp settings, is just icing on the cake. If you have flac files then you need this app....period.
Broken update
by ecthroi on 2020/11/29 14:30
reported a bug that others here have noticed, the app crashes now and can rarely play more than a song or two at a time before it stops. had been using this app for months before, happily paid for it (despite a lack of gapless playback on albums) and has been solid until a month ago. don’t know if the dev is working on a fix, when i contacted them about it they only said to restart the phone and app, then have ignored my recent replies about it. wouldn’t suggest paying for this or any of the other apps by the same dev: Evermusic, etc.
less buffering in between flacs from online music
by Jayavaraman on 2020/12/01 04:07
When i first played one of my flacs from mega i would always experience buffering interrupting my music and it would not stop and now i don’t see that anymore which is a plus. Great app, but i think the UI is a little bit outdated but everything else is great!
Great app needs update
by Jean DeJardon on 2020/05/24 19:15
I love it and now I can manage my music files I download to my iPad Pro. Only thing is in slide-view the buttons get all mashed over each other and the buttons on the right side of the app don’t work. This is the problem in split view as well. Still a great app and the iPad is even more powerful with it. The creators will get my support when I see another update that fixes this.
Great app...one thing though
by Clyde-frog on 2017/09/05 17:52
I like using this app to play files from my flac library. It also has a great interface and never crashes. I would like to have a gapless playback option though. I could understand them leaving this out for playing from the cloud, but not for the files I have physically saved to the app. How am I supposed to listen to The Wall by Pink Floyd or Abbey Road by The Beatles? Please add this feature.
Amazing and proper network share support
by Thisis789 on 2017/09/13 21:00
Obviously if you have a large collection of flac files you can't really store them all on your phone so this let's you connect to internet and network shares, works great added a permission on my freenas box to let my phone connect and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Even on VPN when I'm not home!
Perfect? At least it was until recent update.
by pegaz2016 on 2018/09/21 18:53
It used to be so great, 24bit playback, stereo... Now it plays in mono (tried with multiple headphones) and there’s no option for 24bit!! I have used this app for so long and I am saddened by the unnecessary and worsening changes. Oh, and if you have a song set on replay you can’t skip it using arrows anymore.
Brilliant app with some issues
by Zerrorex on 2018/09/15 15:35
The app works great for the most part, but really needs an update for some issues. The Google Drive login is currently broken, the app can’t read multi-disc albums in the proper order, and album art is often corrupted. Still a great app and well worth the purchase. Looking forward to the update.
Play music from cloud storage
by Twinbot on 2020/06/09 19:35
This fixes everything for me. It’s exactly what I was looking for. The UI is nicely done and makes perfect sense. Being able to play my bejillion music files in the cloud is just a dream come true. The entire app works like a champ. Thank you so much for reading my mind and coming up with Flacbox.
Easiest and most efficient FLAC file player available
by Person -1 on 2018/09/20 22:11
I mostly use FLACbox for streaming from my google drive accounts, so it’s proven to be an invaluable tool for quickly accessing and playing music files. My only gripe is that FLACbox seemingly doesn’t work with .ape files. Other than that this is a stellar app.
Almost there!
by Guetvox on 2018/09/20 22:32
Takes up to an hour to load this app at times. 😩 This app has so many great features for audiophiles on the go! But I have had a hard time with the crashing problem and load time thereafter. I guess it might be attributed to a large library I am trying to access. Still, smooth these things out and we will all be happier. Also, the album cover search is comically bad at times.
The Best iOS Audio Player
by Justin Freitas on 2017/10/19 04:51
Eddy is back! This time with downloading capabilities and local file organization coming back. That and WiFi access to the app for transfers are some of the best features. Super nice UI. They dinged me for three bucks again because of the name change, but it’s totally worth it.
Would be great if it didn’t randomly skip to next tracks
by Nude Penguin on 2017/10/29 16:38
It’s not the best at sorting your tags either, so you’ll have to resort to making playlists from folders rather than just adding tracks. When playing in the background and going to another process (like messenger) it sometimes skips to next song suddenly. It also does this randomly when turning off the screen from the app itself. I asked the devs, but they don’t seem to give a rat’s rectum, so I guess, nice interface but bogus app overall.
An amazing app with one flaw
by zmontera on 2019/11/15 16:03
I love this app and the fact that I can upload over wifi is a huge time saver. That being said every time it updates it makes it so my iPhone doesn’t recognize it as a music player and it only plays one song at a time. The only way to fix this is to delete the app and reinstall but then that wiped my music so then I have to reupload every time. Very frustrating.
FYI to anyone who likes this app
by Anaminus on 2018/08/28 18:05
This app seems to not be developed any longer. However, if you open up the developer's list of published apps there is one called evermusic, which seems to be the same as this but with recent updates. Flacbox seems to crash a lot.
The app I’ve longed for
by makemusicmike on 2018/12/11 01:55
I produce music and have for years been looking for an app that can simply play through a folder of mp3’s of mixes from my Dropbox account without stopping after each track. This app does it absolutely perfectly!! Thank you!!!!!!!
Latest Update Unstable
by Gus Molina on 2018/10/04 03:00
I would have given the previous version 5 stars. Worked perfectly. Was using it all the time. The latest update is unstable. Music in queue stops playing. When I open the queue the playlist flashes and I have to restart the app. Sometimes the songs in the queue disappears altogether. I thought maybe it would work better with iOS12 but still having the same issues. Please fix this app ASAP.
Very nice, but no gapless playback
by ajb_40 on 2018/01/15 00:59
This is an excellent app for the most part. It lets me easily stream music from my NAS to my main receiver and bedroom sound bar via Chromecast. It has a lot of other nice features as well. However, the lack of a gapless playback feature makes it impossible to enjoy many albums, and is a glaring omission from an otherwise robust app. Hence, I can’t yet give it 5 stars.

What’s it good for?
by Anon3141526 on 2021/01/16 23:45
I can’t figure out what it good for apparently you have to buy the pro version to do anything with it.
Awesome
by Vipts93 on 2021/01/12 08:19
I have been using this for 3 years.
Redemption
by RamneekKSharma on 2021/01/11 13:08
Pro EQ works again only sample rate option ( 44.1khz , 48khz etc) are not available anymore which is not an issue. Thanks for fixing the app.
EQ works on iPad, SMB2 Win10 sharing
by HawaiiMaui on 2021/01/05 21:13
I can connect to file shares on my Win10 PC. This is amazing, since I WFH I can use my iPad to play MP3's or FLAC and not need to download files and use up my precious (paltry) 32GB of storage. [Any other app that claims SMB but hasn't been updated since 2018 won't let you authenticate with Windows. MS disabled SMB1 and the devs needed to update to SMB2 or SMB3; this app has kept up to date.] This app also has an EQ, this basically lets me use any halfway decent earphones and make them sound much better. Buying this app with EQ was much cheaper than buying high end wireless earphones. I've used EQ's for years with speakers to neutralize the room acoustics and love them with headphones too. The EQ sliders were missing on iPad but a few emails with the dev and they've got it working in the Dec 2020 build. The SMB (cloud) playback also seems less buggy, or my Wi-Fi is behaving. The app was pretty unforgiving of bad network connections, but this one hasn't crashed for hours. (Their MP3 EQ app has 3x retry options in the settings but the FLAC one doesn't.)
Good except for recent updates!
by PaulEnn on 2021/01/03 13:20
Very decent app, works well and wifi syncing is great. Was working well the last year or so, then developers made a couple of updates the last few weeks and now it freezes, crashes etc. Too bad, I was about to purchase it.
Bug
by BIG BOSS805 on 2021/01/02 19:06
Only shows 100 songs out of 110.
Best Player for Music Files
by Melle1313 on 2021/01/01 16:46
Use this to load and play music files uploaded from old cds to my IPad. Works very well. Easy to transfer files. Can play one song or an album. Very difficult to find an app that would work for me. This is it!
Where the pitch changer
by nuksebriy675 on 2020/12/29 15:16
Everything about this app is great but I miss the pitch changer don’t know why you removed it that separated this app from most clones
Nice
by mohamadrezasayadi on 2020/12/27 15:12
I like this app for easy work and nice icon and body design
Watch app?
by Ltl12450 on 2020/12/26 03:46
Love, love, love this app but can we get a watch app soon also to go with the iPhone / iPad versions? I’d love to be able to control things from my watch. Five star app if this is possible to add. Thanks in advance!
Audio quality bit rate help
by Un111KnoWn on 2020/12/25 11:38
Today when I opened the app the bit rate was 196. I changed it to 96 on accident and now have no way of changing it back. please help.
Great sound quality, but not easy to play non-streamed files
by Alius123 on 2020/12/25 04:59
For whatever reason this player only likes to cooperate with Dropbox. I downloaded a ton of music files onto iCloud that I wanted to transfer as hard files to my iPhone. I saved them as such into the Downloads folder in Flacbox, which tells you files are for offline playing, and I know it was a hard download since it took up my internal iPhone storage. But when I deleted my files from iCloud none of the songs would play. I had to upload the songs from the download folder to Dropbox to get them to play. Not a user friendly system.
Playback quality gone?
by Ακ74 on 2020/12/24 21:55
Was very happy with it for 2 years. With latest update audio quality dropped significantly. Flac sounds like 112kbps mp3. Same collection same iphone 11
Stops playing; update: uninstalling
by foucault on 2020/12/23 14:43
Update: the update made the player stop working altogether. Songs downloaded to the device won’t play at all. Full stop. Glad I didn’t impulse buy this app. Uninstalling and moving on. —- Something has broken recently where it stops playing. Used to work fine. Hope it gets fixed soon else I’ll have to use something else.
Great music player
by howelldc on 2020/12/21 21:11
Had to find a new music player since the Documents app player quit in me...love this and the graphic equalizer....thanks fir a great app! Let it stream!
Ok so far
by ozzieshort on 2020/12/20 16:32
Ok so far. Have not tried download yet
Version 3.6
by X-25_Ghost on 2020/12/19 02:32
The latest update brought back the equalizer we all loved and that is how it should stay. Knowing it’s available on the free as well as paid pro version makes me more likely to go pro in the future. This is a great alternative to the Apple Music app we get standard and makes it so we can get our music off of the net straight to the phone and play them no iTunes conversion needed.
EQ broken with last update v3.5.3
by hmansion on 2020/12/18 20:58
12/18/2020 Updating my rating from 1 to 5 stars. They appear to have fixed the EQ issues with v3.6.4. I think they have either source code versioning issues or limited testing ability, but the developers are responsive to bugs and suggestions so kudos for that! Max supported audio output sample rate has been dropped from 192 to 96kHz if that’s important to you... ********** I bought the PRO version for the manual EQ. Not only did the last update remove any ability to manually adjust EQ sliders, but now the EQ turns off after every track, even though its toggle switch is still “on”. You must toggle the EQ off, then back on again to reactivate it after EVERY TRACK! I’m surprised no one is talking about that issue - which was also a problem 2 versions or so back and was fixed briefly with v3.4 before this last update broke it again. Have written developers twice, with no response. To be fair, they seem conscientious and try to fix/improve things regularly so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. Still, I’m starting to look for a new flac player...
A lot of potential but a couple dealbreakers
by Frazee1 on 2020/12/16 15:45
This app has a lot of potential and some very nice features, but two things are keeping me from purchasing and using this app. First - The audio tags do not support disc numbers. This results in multi-disc albums being sorted out of order. This is an absolute dealbreaker for me. Second - The app needs to support gapless playback. When playing live albums, having gaps during playback is extremely annoying. If these things are added, I will update my review.
Where is the EQ????
by htpartyshack on 2020/12/15 04:10
Latest update removed the manual EQ with sliders now only has presets. Major disappointment. Also disappointed as I’ve emailed developer twice with no response. Great app but please bring back the EQ!
Doesn’t let you sort DLNA music by track number
by WondrousHippo on 2020/12/14 03:46
Why can’t anybody who makes a DLNA music player for iOS be normal? I have Android and PC apps that can play from DLNA just fine, and list files by track number like anybody who cares about albums will care about. But NO, that’s not a feature here. Do I have to learn to code to make an app that doesn’t have obvious deficiencies?
No custom graphic equalizer after the recent update
by amerw001 on 2020/12/11 00:15
Major drawback with the recent update as the graphic equalizer option is removed. Started looking for a different app.
Used to be great
by The Lichwicks on 2020/12/08 04:19
It used to have a custom equalizer now it doesn’t, and without that there’s no real reason to pick this app over any other.
Used to be the best :/
by angeloistrash on 2020/12/08 02:17
Was my favorite music player for 3 years now, until recent update removed the custom equalizer settings. Is there a way to get that back? I am hearing impaired and used it to enhance frequencies i can't otherwise hear. Anyhow, I hope you are doing well and staying safe! I will be looking forward to a future update.
Update?
by k-ROZÉ on 2020/12/08 01:33
Ummm what happened to all my equalizer presets? They no longer work. Why was the equalizer option removed??? That was the whole reason why I paid for this app. Bring it back.
Where did the equalizer go?
by ShadowzeroX on 2020/12/07 00:13
There are only default equalizer presets now. That’s what I really liked about this app was the equalizer and how you can adjust it however you like. Am I missing something.
Flacbox Newest Update - BEWARE
by papj776 on 2020/12/06 23:08
What I loved about flacbox was its ability to play multiple audio formats but also to be able to customize the graphic equalizer to your preference . Now with its the newest update they’ve taken away the customization feature of the equalizer. What I once rated as 5Star I now rate 3Star.
Why does it sort tracks by name and not track number?!
by wvc42 on 2020/12/06 13:51
I just want to play music from my NAS, but this app sorts the music in alphabetical order, not by track number. I can’t find where to change this in settings. What the heck?!
less buffering in between flacs from online music
by Jayavaraman on 2020/12/01 04:07
When i first played one of my flacs from mega i would always experience buffering interrupting my music and it would not stop and now i don’t see that anymore which is a plus. Great app, but i think the UI is a little bit outdated but everything else is great!
Great app, keeps getting better!
by JAC from Texas on 2020/11/30 15:06
I’ve been using Flacbox for several years. I send flac from Mac to phone with Airdrop. The app is constantly being improved; the developer(s) are attentive to feedback and implement it well. This app is totally worth it!
Good app
by nicolar coconit on 2020/11/30 06:26
Great app
Broken update
by ecthroi on 2020/11/29 14:30
reported a bug that others here have noticed, the app crashes now and can rarely play more than a song or two at a time before it stops. had been using this app for months before, happily paid for it (despite a lack of gapless playback on albums) and has been solid until a month ago. don’t know if the dev is working on a fix, when i contacted them about it they only said to restart the phone and app, then have ignored my recent replies about it. wouldn’t suggest paying for this or any of the other apps by the same dev: Evermusic, etc.
Used to work great but latest update messed it up
by Wishingwell12 on 2020/11/28 18:11
Just like the other users are saying since the latest update can maybe play 1 or 2 songs and then the app crashes. It will make a static noise then the app shuts off. Please fix because use this app a lot and am currently looking for another app since I’ve sent two emails to developers with no answer.
Great!
by iPh0neQueen on 2020/11/25 22:31
Perfect so far!
Useful for me hope you all too!!
by Toty Montana on 2020/11/25 13:26
It more advantages entertainment, and wonderful app, I like music app
Fantastic app
by tonicshift on 2020/11/17 13:40
Fantastic. Love how it syncs with online drives. Absolutely stunning UI especially the album art view. Upgraded to pro version as well. Great work guys! Appreciate it so much!
One problem.
by DeadPhish1026 on 2020/11/14 21:47
I got this app for music I don’t have on other apps. It is the best one out there. There is one huge issue. It always changes the album cover/title, and even the music! This is so annoying and I can’t keep track. If this is a thing with the app, I would suggest have an option not to have the app automatically download title/cover. If it is not an issue with the app, it’s just me. But if this can be fixed, that would be great! Thank you, otherwise great app.
Bad Pause
by TheLastBlessing on 2020/11/13 22:56
doesn't resume any music action when a bluetooth object is turned off the. resumed, even when reconnected to the device
App has bugs
by CrashyMN on 2020/11/12 04:53
Since the latest update, audio deteriorates then app crashes. Rarely can I get through one song.
Difference vs Evermusic?
by Motorambler on 2020/11/05 18:15
What is the difference between this app and Evermusic? They look identical to me after using both for a while and even looking at all the settings for both apps.
Equalizer disabled after every song ends
by Smoke Up Johnny on 2020/11/01 23:10
Same issue as reported by another user last Friday. Must go to Settings & toggle EQ off/on to enable EQ after every song. iOS 14.1
Audio
by lilvroxx on 2020/10/31 20:43
The audio is sounding weird now
Stops playing constantly
by alejandro567 on 2020/10/31 05:08
Imported songs from files on my iPhone and when I hit play all, it stops working after 1 or 2 songs. Defeats the whole purpose of why I got this app in the first place.
Разработчик - красава.
by HugeHum on 2020/10/30 20:27
Отличное приложение. Пользуюсь почти год - всем доволен. 👍🏻
Not good
by O.brana on 2020/10/30 11:59
update is not good, interrupts playback
Fantastic app! Pro version is everything I ever wanted.
by 700 Pages on 2020/10/22 01:05
I upgraded to the pro version instantly when I realized that it is a one time payment. I so so so appreciate when developers keep the price, whatever it is, as a one time charge. Thank you so much.
Perfect audio player 👍👍👍
by YAKCMA on 2020/09/26 19:09
This player is the very powerful and good for ios👏👏👏
i know i just got this app
by Hoppits on 2020/09/22 23:17
but can you please add opus individual song artwork support its kinda annoying having none of my artwork show on my iphone but on audacious on linux it shows up just fine also yes i said individual song artwork not album artwork since most of my music dont come in the forms of albums but rather individual songs themselves
Bug = feature?
by Les Rhoda on 2020/09/04 20:18
For whatever reason, this app doesn’t care what else you’re doing. Playback continues regardless. IDK if this is a bug or feature but I love it! Its handy if you want to vlog yourself scatting ideas over beats in your car, or doing live commentary on a YouTube video...I was a lil shocked when I first found that not even the mighty iPhone Camera app would not silence it, but record it via the mic even! This tweak comes at a cost, though, as this app stays mostly off the radar when it comes to widgets, share sheets, and the action center media controls. It’s still one of the best I’ve used for FLACs, big up Flacbox!
Great
by GMX1978 on 2020/08/31 20:18
Nice very nice App
Flacbox: My Nominee For Killer App 2020
by apple.pink on 2020/08/21 07:33
Easily adding all my FLAC, pulling cover art, creating a playlist and downloading to my iPhone. Diverse connection options - fast SMB to my NAS music library plus all clouds. Been so long... many years. I’m finally just enjoying listening while making a mix. I can go back and forth without losing my file path and the music just keeps playing. Perfection. Thank you for making a music app that has a logical visual interface which manages to get out of the way of the music. “For Those About To Rock, I Salute You”
No Problems!
by Gingerly 156 on 2020/08/15 01:49
I saw previous posts, but this (80 this August) lady found no problems! Once I figured out how to download my music, it played flawlessly in car, stopping for calls and restarting afterwards. No stalling while playing a song ever. Thank you for a player that won’t twist my arm for a monthly payment 😊❤️! And an equalizer! Nice work techie!!! Ok, just one small problem, playing speed. All by itself it starts playing the song faster. Does this in the middle of the song so I have to open the app to settings, speed and tap normal speed.
New to iPhone
by chungster007 on 2020/08/10 01:43
On android, the best player imo is power amp. When I switched to iPhone, I almost returned this phone when I found out power amp wasn’t available for iPhone. That’s how good it is. When I found Flacbox, it was only after I had tried probably 90% of the players in the Apple store. This is for sure the best player in the Apple store by a mile.
Worth checking out
by eardrum_buzz on 2020/07/14 16:33
I’ve walked back my first review due to a lot of issues with SMB playback (freezing during track, freezing between tracks, etc). I don’t yet know enough about the issue to say that it’s really the app’s fault vs a configuration issue with my SMB server, but it’s impacting my ability to use this as my “go-to” player. Still, there are a ton of useful features and thoughtful design aspects here and it’s well worth checking out. Other connection types besides SMB may be less problematic.
Terrible Album art search
by HawaiiDon on 2020/07/04 11:34
Why read all the metadata and then not use it? Per track, the app does use the embedded image but then does not use that image for the album itself. Instead it uses some wrong image that some search has selected. The search result for many mainstream albums are 100% wrong. Stay away until this is addressed.
Great app but
by oneisabirdotgw on 2020/07/03 07:52
Need to fix the shuffle button; it just plays the next song in the cue which is the exact opposite of what a shuffle button should be
Audiophile player
by Gopoopsomewhere on 2020/06/27 03:01
I use HD and wave files to obtain best sound qualities. They play through Flacbox perfectly. App is easy to use. Easy to sync. Best music player on iPad!
New user
by DavidMFox on 2020/06/25 02:59
I couldn’t seem to find a free app that also played FLAC file formats for iPhone or iOS, luckily I found Flacbox! This app is awesome it plays nearly every music file format I’ve seen that is commonly used including lossless which was my main concern. You can load the music right onto the app through iTunes and it even found several of the music files associated album art and it shows up when playing the file, Great App!!!
Nice FLAC Player
by Rat Breeder on 2020/06/23 19:15
I originally used FLAC Player+, but it downloaded all songs instead of streaming from cloud. I wanted to have a FLAC player that streamed from my google drive, and this was perfect.
Almost perfect
by BrooklynBrass777 on 2020/06/18 16:30
So much is right about this app. The only request I have is for you guys to enable gapless playback between one track and the next. Some tracks are meant to play back to back with no pause. Thanks.
The best!
by Pat Bee on 2020/06/15 22:25
Seriously, the best audio player for files on google cloud
Play music from cloud storage
by Twinbot on 2020/06/09 19:35
This fixes everything for me. It’s exactly what I was looking for. The UI is nicely done and makes perfect sense. Being able to play my bejillion music files in the cloud is just a dream come true. The entire app works like a champ. Thank you so much for reading my mind and coming up with Flacbox.
Cloud playing completely broken
by twladin on 2020/06/09 15:49
I tried to use this on a Dropbox folder. This is the only reason I bought the app - to use its cloud player. It’s useless. My library is only two levels deep, organized by artist/album/tracks. All files are properly tagged with album and artist tagging. File types are all supported: flac, alac, aac, mp3, Opus. I’m using an iPhone 12 Pro. The metadata syncing never finishes. Background sync does not work at all. Even though it claims to have read the folders, it never adds most of the files. What it does read it reads sporadically. Albums are missing tracks. Most albums are ignored entirely. I’ve tried deleting and restarting sync. Tried removing and reading the Dropbox integration. Nothing works.
Great app
by eltoloc on 2020/06/04 23:56
First time I use this app and I am already in love with it. Seems to be my (music) to go app in the future.
Sort Order of Albums
by Orod2905 on 2020/06/04 16:12
They must be joking with this app. Can’t even get the song order correct when displaying albums. It’s the only upnp music player that’s doing it of all of the players I’ve tried so far.
Everything you would want in a player
by Super Cheese on 2020/05/25 14:04
I use this app to listen to podcasts and sermons that I want to have locally but not in my iTunes library. Great for managing files as it has robust cloud service interface. Since I study the material bookmark feature is awesome and works well with apple watch so you can bookmark while walking and listening. My only gripe is that I wish the developer would fix the lock screen controls to rewind and bookmark. As opposed to bookmark and fast forward.
Great app needs update
by Jean DeJardon on 2020/05/24 19:15
I love it and now I can manage my music files I download to my iPad Pro. Only thing is in slide-view the buttons get all mashed over each other and the buttons on the right side of the app don’t work. This is the problem in split view as well. Still a great app and the iPad is even more powerful with it. The creators will get my support when I see another update that fixes this.
Very good player
by Greenirani on 2020/05/19 11:17
For further updates I suggest adding Lyrics tab to the Edit ID3 Tags

by blindmike77 on 2020/04/13 20:17
Great app, love all the features. I don’t think it’s right that I would have to pay for it more than once if I have multiple devices I use it on.
Getting worse after app updated

I already paid and now it turns into a “limited version”. Also, it doesn’t connect to my car anymore after updating

I love this app

Makes my music sound way better then iTunes. It keeps improving. I’ve had this for years now and haven’t found anything better.

by xAGGhostx on 2020/03/10 18:41
Why does this app delete or lose your music? Extremely frustrating.
Very awsome
by Arman.z on 2020/03/09 19:20
Excelent player very powerfull derive the flac files even 24bit high res qualities... I love it.....❤️👌🏼😘
This app is really good :)
by popi julo on 2020/03/08 02:38
The only thing that can get annoying pretty fast is if you add a song it will say that the duration is like 20 minutes when it’s really just a 2-3 minute song. Other than that this app is amazing
frustrating
by IlovePeach00 on 2020/03/04 06:33
I bought it because it worked so well. and now i have 3 or 4 duplicates of who knows how many songs. With the permission set to NO DUPLICATES. 🚮
Great app!
by Theprocaleb on 2020/03/02 03:03
Please let me rearrange icons... like bring album/artists to the front + when click on artist default show album instead of song. Also I would like to be able to hide, connect, flies, settings. Thanks!!

Will not stream music when connecting to Apple TV HD. It gets the spinning circle of death. My other music app streams fine from the same iPhone to the same Apple TV. I decided to give flacbox another try. I went to move my files to flacbox (from another folder on my phone) only to find out that you can’t choose a folder(s) to move to flacbox, only individual files. I have almost 60 gb of music...that would take days. Back to Neutron Player.
Great overall app
by James Tarrou on 2020/02/10 21:58
Has all of the nice features I would expect from a music player, and even a unique ability to slow down/speed up the playback. The only thing this application lacks however is a ‘cross fade’ function. I searched everywhere but there doesn’t seem to be a feature that lets the tracks fade into one another, which is a disappointment.
Very Very nice app, I’m impressed!
by Timedemon on 2020/01/26 12:15
I had major issues with the way Apple iPhone handles the metadata in music imported from a PC. I decided to use this app and give it a try. I used the WiFi Drive to transfer my music from my PC by just dragging over the entire folder. Took some time for my 20+ gigs of music to move over, but in the end, this app read the metadata correctly and even supplied album art. Sweet. I went ahead and bought the Pro version because this is the app I was looking for to do the job right!
Good player, Not good at pairing with cover image

这个播放器就像一坨屎一样!
by Arthur&Yj on 2019/12/22 15:52
播放离线的无损音乐,新买的铁三角耳机,以为是耳机音质太差了!后来换了Foobar200才知道是这个垃圾播放器造成的,自己下载的无损音乐,上传到离线来听,音质是出奇的差!不知道这么差为什么这么高的评分!
Perfect for my online music library
by themonarc on 2019/12/15 20:26
After using this app for a bit, supporting the developer was a no-brainer. Fantastic support for organized online libraries (mine is on google drive) and metadata.
simply fantastic

Gapless
by Bobsmoly on 2019/11/22 09:54
Needs gapless playback!
Completely useless for playing music already on your iPad
by CannotFindGoodNicknames on 2019/11/22 05:53
This app bills itself as a "player" but it's only for streaming. A player should play your music. ALL of it!!!!
Very good

But lacks instructions to learn how too operate properly
Skipping right over flac files
by Tradellio on 2019/11/15 16:22
I got it so I could actually play the flac files that Google Drive refuses to play, and when I select them in this app, it treats them the same way and just skips over it and starts playing my mp3 files. The file is not corrupt as I can download it to my phone and play it from Files app. What’s the point of a flac player that doesn’t play flac files?
An amazing app with one flaw
by zmontera on 2019/11/15 16:03
I love this app and the fact that I can upload over wifi is a huge time saver. That being said every time it updates it makes it so my iPhone doesn’t recognize it as a music player and it only plays one song at a time. The only way to fix this is to delete the app and reinstall but then that wiped my music so then I have to reupload every time. Very frustrating.
Great app but still can't stream flacs from nas
by Lordradish on 2019/11/11 02:49
I've had this app ever since I started using iPhone, because it plays flacs and I can also stream from my NAS. The big problem is that although it plays flacs that are stored on the phone, just fine, I can't get it to stream FLAC files from my NAS. As more of my files are now this type, that's becoming a bit problematic. When I contacted the developer over a year ago, I was told it was going to get fixes in an update. Contacted again a few months ago, never heard back. If I could just stream my Flacs, I'd give this 5 stars, as everything else about it is great.
Great app

EQ works on iPad, SMB2 Win10 sharing
by HawaiiMaui on 2021/01/05 21:13
I can connect to file shares on my Win10 PC. This is amazing, since I WFH I can use my iPad to play MP3's or FLAC and not need to download files and use up my precious (paltry) 32GB of storage. [Any other app that claims SMB but hasn't been updated since 2018 won't let you authenticate with Windows. MS disabled SMB1 and the devs needed to update to SMB2 or SMB3; this app has kept up to date.] This app also has an EQ, this basically lets me use any halfway decent earphones and make them sound much better. Buying this app with EQ was much cheaper than buying high end wireless earphones. I've used EQ's for years with speakers to neutralize the room acoustics and love them with headphones too. The EQ sliders were missing on iPad but a few emails with the dev and they've got it working in the Dec 2020 build. The SMB (cloud) playback also seems less buggy, or my Wi-Fi is behaving. The app was pretty unforgiving of bad network connections, but this one hasn't crashed for hours. (Their MP3 EQ app has 3x retry options in the settings but the FLAC one doesn't.)
Great app
by Ferrari550 on 2018/09/26 16:36
I have used EverMusic app for a day or two and had problems. Flacbox is the better than any other music app out there. If have any problems with it then I'll write a review, supporting your improvements on this app by give you supportive advice. Thanks great app, totally cool and quick when download is ready to play. There is one thing that needs to be fixed. When i listen to an hour long play list it seems that the buffering slows down and if there is any way you can make loud faster like it did before especially for the one hour long play list. When playing, it stalls out and pauses the play list and would like to see improvement on that. Other than that, i think this is still the best music player app out there:) Thank you
Brilliant music player
by Oyt111 on 2017/08/18 02:59
Way better than VOX with Loop and similar services. Pay Dropbox instead and have your own choosing of apps. This app has 24-bit audio support (disabled by default) and very neat library building with online tagging and album covers. And you can reach your NAS in local network via Samba as well and add files from there to your library and for offline use. No problem with displaying UTF-8 and UTF-16 chars. So no gibberish and funny looking characters in song names. Navigating thru your library could have been better organized (say you go under an artist but cannot list albums, just songs) but still the best app among what I have tried (pretty much everything in the App Store) so far.
Great app, but on issue
by Shadyelements17 on 2019/09/17 11:55
I love this app, I purchased the pro version so I can download whole albums and not just songs. The issue is when I close all my apps at night before bed to shut my phone down and give it a break, I have to redownload my albums when I wake up. Once downloaded for offline play shouldn’t they be staying downloaded? It’s no big deal but I love my albums and love to listen to them around the house somewhere but I want to be able to know I’m gonna be able to listen to them if I close out of the app and I’m out somewhere. If I’m out somewhere I don’t have WiFi and I don’t have unlimited data so I can’t just redownload my music every time I close the app. If you can fix the issue so the albums stay downloaded even upon closing the app, I will do another review and give 5 stars! 😃
Excellent MP3 player app
by Holland Daly on 2018/02/06 01:38
As a new user to iOS I was becoming very frustrated with Apple’s weak Music app and it’s need to be tethered to iTunes on your desktop if you hope to play your MP3s. I turned to the App Store for another app capable of playing mp3 files and became even more frustrated with the slew of apps that prioritize spamming ads more than anything else. Just as I about gave up I found Flacbox and it’s literally everything I ever wanted the native Music app to be. I can easily download an mp3 from a site and play it in Flacbox or access my library from my Dropbox. If I could give the Flacbox devs a tip and a big smooch I would. 5/5 bless you Flacbox.
Mega AND ogg support!
by Mr. John.com on 2017/12/18 09:12
If you have music you paid for in a mega account, and it happens to be in ogg format because most everything can play oggs while being open-source, and their not copy protected like mp3s, this app can do it. In fact I'm having a hard time finding many apps that support mega at all, and strangely, even security conscious open source mega does not play ogg files for some lame reason, even though you can stream other formats of music. So imagine my surprise when I'm just playing around in the app, no music on this new phone to even play yet, and low and behold I see the mega icon under cloud support. Vlc has cloud support, but no mega. Mega has an audio/video player, but no oggs. This can't be that rare of a situation can it? In fact I see you guys just started supporting oggs recently. So thanks devs. Open-source (ogg) and security (mega) imo, go hand in hand, maybe I'm just crazy. This is the one perfect app for both. When I finally pay for some apps in a few weeks, this will absolutely be one of them.
Flacbox: My Nominee For Killer App 2020
by apple.pink on 2020/08/21 07:33
Easily adding all my FLAC, pulling cover art, creating a playlist and downloading to my iPhone. Diverse connection options - fast SMB to my NAS music library plus all clouds. Been so long... many years. I’m finally just enjoying listening while making a mix. I can go back and forth without losing my file path and the music just keeps playing. Perfection. Thank you for making a music app that has a logical visual interface which manages to get out of the way of the music. “For Those About To Rock, I Salute You”
Great sound quality, but not easy to play non-streamed files
by Alius123 on 2020/12/25 04:59
For whatever reason this player only likes to cooperate with Dropbox. I downloaded a ton of music files onto iCloud that I wanted to transfer as hard files to my iPhone. I saved them as such into the Downloads folder in Flacbox, which tells you files are for offline playing, and I know it was a hard download since it took up my internal iPhone storage. But when I deleted my files from iCloud none of the songs would play. I had to upload the songs from the download folder to Dropbox to get them to play. Not a user friendly system.
It crashes beyond belief
by samuel444 on 2018/05/17 14:23
Because it crashes so often on my iPhone 7 Plus, I decided to remove the app, install it again and pay the fee. This way I get the latest with all bug fixes. I added all my play list from OneDrive opus file library. When I play the files, this app crashes after 20 seconds. It does it over and over and over again. Once in a while, it plays for a few minutes. But then it crashes. I give 5 stars on features and design. Zero on software quality. THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!!!
Everything you would want in a player
by Super Cheese on 2020/05/25 14:04
I use this app to listen to podcasts and sermons that I want to have locally but not in my iTunes library. Great for managing files as it has robust cloud service interface. Since I study the material bookmark feature is awesome and works well with apple watch so you can bookmark while walking and listening. My only gripe is that I wish the developer would fix the lock screen controls to rewind and bookmark. As opposed to bookmark and fast forward.
No Problems!
by Gingerly 156 on 2020/08/15 01:49
I saw previous posts, but this (80 this August) lady found no problems! Once I figured out how to download my music, it played flawlessly in car, stopping for calls and restarting afterwards. No stalling while playing a song ever. Thank you for a player that won’t twist my arm for a monthly payment 😊❤️! And an equalizer! Nice work techie!!! Ok, just one small problem, playing speed. All by itself it starts playing the song faster. Does this in the middle of the song so I have to open the app to settings, speed and tap normal speed.
Great app but still can't stream flacs from nas

So... about locally saved music
by A190up on 2018/10/09 12:58
I found this app many years ago and have been using it ever since. I love it. I suggest it to others. I am not a fan of streaming, and over the years it was the best app I had found for playing music saved to your device without streaming. Up until it now. Before the update, I could would open the app and just play songs. I could select music by genre, artist, or my entire collection of songs by tapping a tab at the top of my screen corresponding to how I wanted to listen to my stuff. The new update seems to shove “accounts” down your throat, and there seems to be no way to add music saved on my device to the music library. Whereas now I have to drill down three menus deep in the UI to get to locally saved music because there now seems to be no way to add it to the one tap music library. Maybe this was an oversight, but it seems kind of crazy. I love the app, don’t ever go away, but can these issues be remedied? Thanks. 😬
Very Very nice app, I’m impressed!

by DavidMFox on 2020/06/25 02:59
I couldn’t seem to find a free app that also played FLAC file formats for iPhone or iOS, luckily I found Flacbox! This app is awesome it plays nearly every music file format I’ve seen that is commonly used including lossless which was my main concern. You can load the music right onto the app through iTunes and it even found several of the music files associated album art and it shows up when playing the file, Great App!!!
Cloud playing completely broken
by twladin on 2020/06/09 15:49
I tried to use this on a Dropbox folder. This is the only reason I bought the app - to use its cloud player. It’s useless. My library is only two levels deep, organized by artist/album/tracks. All files are properly tagged with album and artist tagging. File types are all supported: flac, alac, aac, mp3, Opus. I’m using an iPhone 12 Pro. The metadata syncing never finishes. Background sync does not work at all. Even though it claims to have read the folders, it never adds most of the files. What it does read it reads sporadically. Albums are missing tracks. Most albums are ignored entirely. I’ve tried deleting and restarting sync. Tried removing and reading the Dropbox integration. Nothing works.
Really a great app.
by Coopervery on 2018/06/30 13:46
I have been looking for a good, no nonsense mp3 player/app for my large collection of mp3 music and flacs, and now, at last, I have found it. This app connects seamlessly to Dropbox and many other sources, allows you to selectively download your music for offline listening. Includes standard features such as playlists, etc. and works great and so far, with no technical issues at all. There is also a streaming device which I have not tried yet. Great app!
(Update) Fixed! No airplaying flag files to Apple TV
by IKNYC on 2017/06/28 03:22
At last airplay issue is fixed! Now I can give you 5 stars. Thanks for solving the issue. I have 800 GB music in Google drive in flac format. I airplay music from my iPhone to my home theater through Apple TV. I've been enjoying this app like this for a week and I liked its sound quality with equalizer. But after this update, airplay doesn't work anymore. It shows the airplay icon and when I choose Apple TV, it keeps trying to load the music forever (circular arrow keeps turning). When I turn off airplay, I can hear the music from my iPhone. Now I'm back to my other favorite app, "Cloudbeats", which is much more stable and UI is better. Flacbox is better in sound quality with equalizer and the automatic artwork download is great. But if it cannot airplay, it's useless to me.
Great overall app
by James Tarrou on 2020/02/10 21:58

Worth checking out
by eardrum_buzz on 2020/07/14 16:33
I’ve walked back my first review due to a lot of issues with SMB playback (freezing during track, freezing between tracks, etc). I don’t yet know enough about the issue to say that it’s really the app’s fault vs a configuration issue with my SMB server, but it’s impacting my ability to use this as my “go-to” player. Still, there are a ton of useful features and thoughtful design aspects here and it’s well worth checking out. Other connection types besides SMB may be less problematic.
One problem.
by DeadPhish1026 on 2020/11/14 21:47
I got this app for music I don’t have on other apps. It is the best one out there. There is one huge issue. It always changes the album cover/title, and even the music! This is so annoying and I can’t keep track. If this is a thing with the app, I would suggest have an option not to have the app automatically download title/cover. If it is not an issue with the app, it’s just me. But if this can be fixed, that would be great! Thank you, otherwise great app.
Version 3.6
by X-25_Ghost on 2020/12/19 02:32
The latest update brought back the equalizer we all loved and that is how it should stay. Knowing it’s available on the free as well as paid pro version makes me more likely to go pro in the future. This is a great alternative to the Apple Music app we get standard and makes it so we can get our music off of the net straight to the phone and play them no iTunes conversion needed.
One problem, maybe two
by Sayonara Bye on 2018/11/12 02:31
I used FLACbox a few versions back. Everything was fine until an update allowed for linking of online storage accounts. I couldn’t add songs because I didn’t have cloud storage that I put my music on, I synced and downloaded my songs using Itunes. The app was unusable and I uninstalled. Later I gave in and put all my FLAC files on Google Drive. I have all my FLAC files separated from my MP3 and I’m ready to transfer. But the app developer wishes to screw me over because I am not allowed transfer that FOLDER of music WITHOUT PAYING. Instead, I can only transfer my songs for offline listening FILE BY FILE, downloading one at a time.
The free version was good until today
by Jthacool on 2018/09/19 20:55
Guess the developer is finally selling out, I think 24-bit audio support is now reserved for the paid version (it used to be on the free version), wouldn’t know though because I’m not buying it. Oh yea beware of the ads because they just got more aggressive with this update, basically don’t even bother with this app unless you want to pay the $3 for the full version. I have one more problem, even if your files have their own album artwork in the metadata the app will still use low quality versions from the internet.
Flacbox -VS- VOX
by Sarcalast on 2018/08/29 23:33
Flacbox: - support for obscure formats: .ogg, MEGA, etc... - supports Onedrive, Dropbox, MEGA, 10+ more drives - Automatic sync - Edit Tags - Open in... Feature - Sort by genre - If app crashes, it will save your song progress and immediately play when opened again. Not paused. VOX: - no pauses between songs - Radio Conclusion: If you don't want to deal with a computer, Flacbox is the BEST/only option for automatic syncing of mp3s and FLAC. The extra options also giveore freedom of playing to Flacbox. However, if you absolutely need seem less transitions between songs, go with VOX. Best of Both Worlds: I sync with onedrive on Flacbox and use the open-in feature to transfer music to VOX. Because... I need seamless transitions! All other FLAC based music players pale in comparison!
Wonderful app for playing flac files
by yupikwolf87 on 2018/11/16 17:19
I have tried a million apps it seems to play flac files on my iPhone. I’ve been using Flacbox for awhile now and it has answered most of the things I want a music app to do. Only problem I have is that the wifi drive switches off and doesn’t seem to run in the background which is a pain when doing large downloads
Where’s support?
by 50ish Dude on 2019/03/16 05:05
I initially used the app to download about 2000 songs from OneDrive and it played fine on my iPhone 7Plus 256 gb. It also played from OneDrive a well. I decided to remove the songs and use my iPad to play the songs from OneDrive. The songs show in the Music Library file “Songs” and even waiting overnight will not play any songs. I have the newest iPad. Same problem with the iPhone. I have written the dev twice with no reply. Once through the contact option in the app store and once on their website. This is sad because when it did work it was a 5 star app. I dislike writing bad reviews.
Awesome!!
by Andy143candy on 2018/11/11 07:08
I feel like none of you guys give credit to the people that made this app! You can download SO MANY SONGS and make the volume louder! You can listen to the songs offline unlike other apps. You can also put a passcode so no one can snoop around your music. BEST APP OUT THERE!! There is some ads but overall the quality of the app is good. Some crashes here and there but there’s not a lot!❤️
My Search is Over
by jaysolution on 2018/05/13 17:41
I just wanted a well designed music play that I could add music to without iTunes, and this delivered. I don't have to open up a web browser to upload music. I can authenticate directly into my Synology and stream my music or download it to my phone. Add the fact that it is pleasing to the eye and logical to use, and we have a flawless music player in our mist.
Flacbox
by nick82171188 on 2019/05/07 03:30
I was amazed when I got the app. Only one issue occured after a while using it, a few days ago all of a sudden all the album covers disappeared. I reloaded the library and was able to see covers as they were reloaded but as soon as the process finished, all the photos were gone. So please help if you can 😄 But, still 5 stars the app is amazing!
Best looking music player but 2 issues prevent 5 star rating!
by dharmaboy1 on 2018/03/07 05:39
To dev, great job on the visual asthetics of this app! Two issues I'm having would allow me to make it perfect. 1. Allow us to import playlists from iTunes/Apple Music Player. 2. Fix the issue with the controls on some BT headphones (sometimes they can pause/play & sometimes not at all). Otherwise, my go-to Music App!
Only one word needed: AWESOME
by IBCotts on 2017/08/21 14:01
After re-ripping everything from lossy to lossless format, I needed an app that did two things: 1) played lossless formats and 2) allowed me to stream these files across my home network (since my 16gb phone isn't going to be very effective with close to a terabyte of music files). This app does both of these things flawlessly. I'm amazed that the app is free as I would have happily paid for this app based on how well it does what it was intended to do. The interface is very intuitive and you're listening to music within a minute of installing the app. The equalizer, including preamp settings, is just icing on the cake. If you have flac files then you need this app....period.
Broken update
by ecthroi on 2020/11/29 14:30
reported a bug that others here have noticed, the app crashes now and can rarely play more than a song or two at a time before it stops. had been using this app for months before, happily paid for it (despite a lack of gapless playback on albums) and has been solid until a month ago. don’t know if the dev is working on a fix, when i contacted them about it they only said to restart the phone and app, then have ignored my recent replies about it. wouldn’t suggest paying for this or any of the other apps by the same dev: Evermusic, etc.
less buffering in between flacs from online music
by Jayavaraman on 2020/12/01 04:07
When i first played one of my flacs from mega i would always experience buffering interrupting my music and it would not stop and now i don’t see that anymore which is a plus. Great app, but i think the UI is a little bit outdated but everything else is great!
Great app needs update
by Jean DeJardon on 2020/05/24 19:15
I love it and now I can manage my music files I download to my iPad Pro. Only thing is in slide-view the buttons get all mashed over each other and the buttons on the right side of the app don’t work. This is the problem in split view as well. Still a great app and the iPad is even more powerful with it. The creators will get my support when I see another update that fixes this.
Great app...one thing though
by Clyde-frog on 2017/09/05 17:52
I like using this app to play files from my flac library. It also has a great interface and never crashes. I would like to have a gapless playback option though. I could understand them leaving this out for playing from the cloud, but not for the files I have physically saved to the app. How am I supposed to listen to The Wall by Pink Floyd or Abbey Road by The Beatles? Please add this feature.
Amazing and proper network share support
by Thisis789 on 2017/09/13 21:00
Obviously if you have a large collection of flac files you can't really store them all on your phone so this let's you connect to internet and network shares, works great added a permission on my freenas box to let my phone connect and it's been smooth sailing ever since. Even on VPN when I'm not home!
Perfect? At least it was until recent update.
by pegaz2016 on 2018/09/21 18:53
It used to be so great, 24bit playback, stereo... Now it plays in mono (tried with multiple headphones) and there’s no option for 24bit!! I have used this app for so long and I am saddened by the unnecessary and worsening changes. Oh, and if you have a song set on replay you can’t skip it using arrows anymore.
Brilliant app with some issues
by Zerrorex on 2018/09/15 15:35
The app works great for the most part, but really needs an update for some issues. The Google Drive login is currently broken, the app can’t read multi-disc albums in the proper order, and album art is often corrupted. Still a great app and well worth the purchase. Looking forward to the update.
Play music from cloud storage
by Twinbot on 2020/06/09 19:35
This fixes everything for me. It’s exactly what I was looking for. The UI is nicely done and makes perfect sense. Being able to play my bejillion music files in the cloud is just a dream come true. The entire app works like a champ. Thank you so much for reading my mind and coming up with Flacbox.
Easiest and most efficient FLAC file player available
by Person -1 on 2018/09/20 22:11
I mostly use FLACbox for streaming from my google drive accounts, so it’s proven to be an invaluable tool for quickly accessing and playing music files. My only gripe is that FLACbox seemingly doesn’t work with .ape files. Other than that this is a stellar app.
Almost there!
by Guetvox on 2018/09/20 22:32
Takes up to an hour to load this app at times. 😩 This app has so many great features for audiophiles on the go! But I have had a hard time with the crashing problem and load time thereafter. I guess it might be attributed to a large library I am trying to access. Still, smooth these things out and we will all be happier. Also, the album cover search is comically bad at times.
The Best iOS Audio Player
by Justin Freitas on 2017/10/19 04:51
Eddy is back! This time with downloading capabilities and local file organization coming back. That and WiFi access to the app for transfers are some of the best features. Super nice UI. They dinged me for three bucks again because of the name change, but it’s totally worth it.
Would be great if it didn’t randomly skip to next tracks
by Nude Penguin on 2017/10/29 16:38
It’s not the best at sorting your tags either, so you’ll have to resort to making playlists from folders rather than just adding tracks. When playing in the background and going to another process (like messenger) it sometimes skips to next song suddenly. It also does this randomly when turning off the screen from the app itself. I asked the devs, but they don’t seem to give a rat’s rectum, so I guess, nice interface but bogus app overall.
An amazing app with one flaw
by zmontera on 2019/11/15 16:03
I love this app and the fact that I can upload over wifi is a huge time saver. That being said every time it updates it makes it so my iPhone doesn’t recognize it as a music player and it only plays one song at a time. The only way to fix this is to delete the app and reinstall but then that wiped my music so then I have to reupload every time. Very frustrating.
FYI to anyone who likes this app

This app seems to not be developed any longer. However, if you open up the developer's list of published apps there is one called evermusic, which seems to be the same as this but with recent updates. Flacbox seems to crash a lot.
The app I’ve longed for

I produce music and have for years been looking for an app that can simply play through a folder of mp3’s of mixes from my Dropbox account without stopping after each track. This app does it absolutely perfectly!! Thank you!!!!!!!
Latest Update Unstable

I would have given the previous version 5 stars. Worked perfectly. Was using it all the time. The latest update is unstable. Music in queue stops playing. When I open the queue the playlist flashes and I have to restart the app. Sometimes the songs in the queue disappears altogether. I thought maybe it would work better with iOS12 but still having the same issues. Please fix this app ASAP.
Very nice, but no gapless playback

This is an excellent app for the most part. It lets me easily stream music from my NAS to my main receiver and bedroom sound bar via Chromecast. It has a lot of other nice features as well. However, the lack of a gapless playback feature makes it impossible to enjoy many albums, and is a glaring omission from an otherwise robust app. Hence, I can’t yet give it 5 stars.
