Evermusic

I saw Evermusic listed in this month's notable apps, but I cannot find anything else about this app on the site. It's not listed in the app directory. Does anyone know anything about this app? I can't get past the first screen.

#1 Just got it

Saw it in the newsletter as well. It‘s indeed strange that there‘s nothing else on the site.
I downloaded it and so far it‘s working great.
I think there‘s a Skip Button which you can use to terminate the welcome screen.

#2 I'm stuck

I just downloaded it and I can't get past the welcome screen. I don't see any buttons. Can someone give me any tips on how to use this app?

#3 Try Swiping

Hello!
This is what I did: I opened the app and encountered some kind of tutorial.
This is split into multiple pages.
So I kept swiping with three fingers from right to left. Three times I think.
On the last page, I find a button named „allow“. It is to allow the app access to my music library or something.
After clicking it, I arrive in the normal app. There‘s a „connection“ tab which allows to set up - well - connections to servers from which to stream music.
Do you get to this one?

#4 Got it with sighted help

Swiping left with 3 fingers didn't seem to work for me. But I turned off Voiceover and got my sighted wife to swipe through the screens. Once I got past the tutorial, I was able to use the app with Voiceover.

Now, if I could figure out how to create playlists from folders, that would be great. I can see how to add one track at a time, but this would quickly become tedious.

Also, where is the playlist file stored? Is it stored in the app's data on the device or back on the music source? Likewise, if you download music to your device through Evermusic, is it stored in the app's space or is it stored with other music on the device and playable with the Music app?

#5 Button next to the directory name

You create a new playlist,
You navigate to the folder in which the files for your future playlist are located.
You do not open this directory, but on its name, swipe once from left to right with one finger. VoiceOver announces an „Add“ Button.
Double tapping this will add all files inside the directory to your playlist.

As for where they‘re stored: I am pretty sure they‘re not stored as files anywhere but on your local device. But I‘m not sure about that.

#6 I use it all the time

Hi, Ever since they finally fixed voiceover compatibility, I've started using this app once again. I use the pro version. I was half asleep when I got through the initial screens, lol. But what I think I did was swipe to the left with three fingers to advance the pages in the initial screen, either that or swipe up with three fingers.
