The release of the Apple Music service has gotten us using this Music Launcher widget a lot. It provides a quick way to start playing music without even opening an app. Music Launcher is made by the same fine folks that brought us the Launcher widget. Music Launcher takes the same idea and applies it to your iPhone music library. So now you’ll be able to directly launch your favorite songs, albums, artists, and playlists right from the Today Screen! Inside the Music Launcher app you can set whatever you would like to launch. An in-app purchase unlocks the ability to create more icons and even control your music from the widget.
Music Launcher is just one of our favorite music apps for iPhone and iPad. We’ve collected all of our favorites here. And if you’d like to see more of our top app selections in different categories, just head on over to our Best Apps Series.
