I think the trade off is ease of use not converting to mp3 or whatever vs number of things you can bring with you.

My old POS iphone4 that I returned was 32GB. That's a lot of music for a trip. Just switch it out when you return. If you get bored, move over to Pandora.

Dan, thanks for the app. I'm messing around with it using dropbox. What benefit do I get from using Filer?

Well you can use Filer as a download manager to grab FLAC files off the web, then send them to FLAC Player. Filer can also extract zip/rar/tgz archives too, so there's that.

For me it doesn't replace iTunes or the iPod app. I do keep a good chunk of lossy music in iTunes, but also have a big archive of FLAC shows and a few choice albums in FLAC. It's a lot easier to drag the FLAC files in (directly from a folder) than converting and "managing" each time I want to listen to a show.

Re: FLAC Player for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad - Beta

Got the FLAC app, works great on the iphone - used dropbox to load the files. plays great.


Downloaded the filer app and now my confusion starts.

Downloaded a 4 part rar file from hotfile.

Extracted each file (do I need to extract each file or can I just tap on one file and it extracts all?)

photo 2.PNG



FLAC files appear in the designated folder

photo 3.PNG



I click on the song (FLAC file) and.........nothing.

Here's a shot of the screen showing the file in the FLAC player, but it's not playing.

If you'd like to help test, please reply with the type of device you have.

The app runs on iPhones/iPods with iOS4 or later. It also runs on iPads with iOS 3.2 or later.
Awesome! can me (actually My Wife) try it?

Re: FLAC Player for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad - Beta

I think $10 is a little steep for a FLAC app for the iphone personally, especially since there is no trial period. I have used some of the other FLAC apps for the iphone and they are kludgy pieces of crap, would be nice to find a good one.
