Ecoute, The Minimalist Music Player For Mac, Makes Its Way To The iPhone

A slick new music player for the iPhone is out.

For the past couple of years, Ecoute has been a considered a staple third-party music player on the Mac. Known for its lightweight, minimalistic design, Ecoute works as an iTunes companion. With access to a Mac’s iTunes library, social network integration, shortcuts, and a simplistic design, many Mac users swear by Ecoute as their music player of choice on the desktop.

Today the makers of Ecoute have launched an official iPhone app in the App Store. Ecoute for iOS serves as a beautiful music player with Twitter integration, AirPlay support, music filters, podcast support, and more.

The app supports Last.fm for track scrobbling, and there’s an option to tweet what you’re listening to. When Apple adds Facebook integration in iOS 6 this fall, Ecoute will be updated with the option to share to Facebook too.

Ecoute’s interface largely relies on album artwork for navigation, and categories are displayed at the top of the screen instead of the bottom. iTunes Match is supported along with AirPlay streaming. Overall, the app is a solid, different take on music playback.

Ecoute for iPhone is available in the App Store for $3.

    Great App! Replaced the default Music.app on my iPhone 4S running iOS 6 Beta 4. Works FLAWLESSLY with iTunes Match, which was a big concern of mine. Hopefully the Mac version of the app will be updated to support iTunes Match in the future.
