iOS has plenty of ways to help you discover new songs, including built-in Shazam integration. But what about when you can’t play that song at that time for some reason? With the new MusicBox app, users can finally track the songs they want to listen to later.
MusicBox was created by Marcos Takanathe same developer behind MusicHarbor – which we’ve already covered here on 9to5Mac. However, while MusicHarbor focuses on helping users discover what’s new from their favorite artists, MusicBox is a “listen later” app, as described by the developer.
If there’s a song you just heard that you want to save for later, but don’t want to add it to your music library, MusicBox will do it for you. The app works with links from Apple Music and Spotify, so you can just paste the song or album URL into it to save it for later.
If you don’t have a link, MusicBox works with Shazam right from the app. With a single tap, MusicBox identifies the song currently playing and saves it for you.
There are other cool things the app is capable of. For example, it collects all song metadata including release date, genre, and label. Users can even organize songs saved in the app by tags and mark them as played. With Apple Music integration, you don’t even need to open the Music app to listen to a song you recorded with MusicBox.
Additionally, the app also features smart search, auto-tagging, shortcut support, home screen widgets, and the database is automatically synced with other devices via iCloud.
MusicBox is available on the App Store for $2.99. The app has no in-app purchases or subscriptions, and it’s compatible with iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
