Customer Reviews

The best overall, with one small but maddening flaw.

I’ve tried most of the FLAC/DSD capable players on the App Store, and for me, iAudioGate is the best balance of features, usability, and design. But there’s one inexplicable usability flaw that keeps me checking the App Store for new options: when you tap an artist to see all of their albums, the resulting view doesn’t just show a nice simple, consolidated album list, it displays all of each album’s songs at the same time. So for an artist with a lot of albums, like the Beatles, or many jazz artists, it can be a *ridiculously* long scroll to get to what you want. EVERY other player does the normal thing of showing the simple album list, so I just don’t get why this one works the way it does. Yes, you can search in the overall album list, too, but then you’re scrolling through your complete collection to find what you want. Annoying. It would be so easy to fix, and if they do, the app would be pretty much perfect.

This is still the best all-rounder, IMO. But I can’t give it five stars. And now that the Onkyo player doesn’t look like it was designed in 1998 anymore, it’s a close call.

Music drops a lot

I’m using this with an Aurender FLOW and a Chord Mojo. You can download FileExplorer download files off of your local network, use the open in option and send files to iAudioGate. That makes adding music really handy. The equalizer sounds really good. Most apps have really poorly developed equalizers. It can transcode higher bit rate to a lower bit rate.

Now the bad.
It seems to use a lot of battery. I’ve experienced audio drop out 2 to 3 times per song with all devices. It seems the best way to solve this is to restart the app. But that doesn’t always solve the issue and could happen again within 5 to 30 minutes, or it may not happen at all. I’m using them with aftermarket cables and the Apple CCK.

App STILL broken after several contacts with Korg

I downloaded this app a few months ago because of its ability to play FLAC files. The app works fine, however, it has a flaw with a very basic music app function. When streaming to a car audio system, the app will resume play when getting in the car, but will NOT stop if the app is not open on the phone screen when the car is shut off. The music keeps playing and the audio is transferred back to the phone, and will frequently play back at a higher speed, much like playing a 33 rpm record at 45 rpm. Very annoying if you have your phone in your pocket. I have contacted Korg several times and they have not corrected this very basic music app function. Not happy.
