My music is deeply nested in folders. To create a Playlist, it seems that I can to select each file first. However, the application doesn't maintain a memory of the folder I was most recently in so it requires that I navigate deeply into my file system to select each file. Is there a way it can remain in the folder of the last selected file? Thanks!
The GDriveMusic uses the standard Google Drive Picker that other apps use. And there is no way to remember the folders with the last opened files. You can only open the recently selected files and folders.
Not very convenient, but you can go to Google Drive and open files from different folders "Open with" > "Music from Drive". Tracks will be added to the end of the list.
First, you need to share files or folders that are used in the playlist with your friends. Then they need to open these files in the "Music from Drive" app (if they did not open them before). Click on the Copy link button, the link will be copied to the clipboard and share this link with your friends. They just need to open this link in a browser.
I was skeptical of whether or not this would be what I'm looking for. I've used doubleTwist for years but was getting really frustrated with having to manually adjust my playlists to match my iTunes playlists on my PC. This program... almost fits the bill. It solves the main issue I have with every other app, but has a few problems that others don't.
1) This isn't an app. I don't want to have to open this in browser when I'm on my phone, a stand alone program should be priority #1.
2) No offline audio cache. Storing recent files locally seems like a pretty standard functionality, though I'd imagine its absence has to do with the web player problem.
3) No song metadata organization. Being able to sort my songs alphabetically, date added, length, ext. would make things much more convenient.
With these 3 changes, this would hands down be the best new-age audio program out there.
This is a web application and it is mainly intended for use on a PC. But it also works well on Mobile devices with good internet speed. We also developed the application based on some of the current limitations of Google Drive.
Answer point by point:
- Mobile app: So far in question
- Offline audio cache: Perhaps
- Metadata organization: Will be done
- Import/Export playlists: Will be done
