Hidden or undocumented app features are commonly referred to as 'Easter eggs'. To see them, you need to perform some simple secret action. In this application, all functionality is hidden behind such a decorative screen to bypass evil censors App Store …
Despite the fact that the war of record companies with pirated content has escalated, VKontakte music players can still be found in App Store, methods of protecting them from censors are becoming more sophisticated. Muka Player is one of those.
The term “Easter egg” is not folklore, it was coined by the manager of Atari's computer games division after a secret screen with a message left by one of its developers was discovered in the popular Adventure game. And the term itself arose by analogy with a game well-known in Europe and the United States, when children look for eggs hidden everywhere on Easter and receive prizes for this.
In all regions, except Russia, the player looks frankly bad, music is not downloaded either through iTunes or through file managers. In general, not a program but rubbish.
But as soon as you switch the region in the settings iPhone to “Russia”, the player becomes a powerful and functional application.

All you need to get access to your music collection, to the music sections of your friends and connected groups on VKontakte is to log in to the social network and allow the application to access your profile.

After that, your entire collection will appear in the application, you can listen to tracks while connected to the Internet or download them to iPhone.
Muka Player also has a 'Popular' section, which displays the currently popular albums and artists. There is also an interactive search that works without a hitch.
The built-in player pleasantly surprised me – it is minimalistic and functional. It has everything you need: timeline, looping, shuffling, loading a track into the device's memory, covers, lyrics, volume control and playback control. Beauty!
Muka Player is handed out in App Store for free, while either put up with an advertising banner at the bottom of the screen, or go for a trick:
Remove the Muka Player advertisement – the second “Easter egg”:
Go to the 'More' page.
Then in 'Settings'.
Alternately tap on the 'Busy' field and on the 'Black topic' field (do not turn on the switch).
Close the application. Not just the “Home” button, but from programs running in the background.
Start the player again and the ad banner will disappear.
Muka Player looks even better without ads!
