Get the most from your Apple Music subscription
Playlisty is a powerful tool to help you get the most from Apple Music. It enables you to grab playlists and setlists on the fly from many different web-pages & apps, then it helps you re-create them in your music library.
What can it do?
- Now that you’re using Apple Music, do you miss your Spotify playlists? Playlisty will enable you to import Spotify playlists with minimal fuss.
- Want to re-live a live performance of your favourite band? Copy/paste the setlist and let Playlisty do the heavy lifting of searching the Apple Music catalogue for each track and creating a playlist.
- Wish you could take playlists from your favourite radio station on the road? Playlisty directly supports a huge variety of web-page formats including the vast playlist library on the BBC website and Sounds app. With just a few taps it will re-create a playlist onto your iPhone.
- Have some industry standard .m3u files you’d like to import to your library? Playlisty will read the file and create a playlist in your library using the best matches available for each track.
- Are you a performer or DJ? Let Playlisty take care of making your setlists available to fans on Apple Music.
How does it work?
Playlisty lets you grab playlists & setlists from other apps & webpages. It employs powerful pattern-matching technology so it can usually find a playlist even if it’s just some random text on a web page.
It then features a quick & simple workflow enabling you to check it’s got the right match for each track.
If there are several possibilities for a track you can preview them to ensure the right one has been selected.
Finally Playlisty will prompt you for a name and will save the playlist in your library, so that you can play it from your Music app.
