The indisputable fact is that music applications have always been and remain in the honor of users of iPhones and iPads. And this is not surprising, because, you see, each of us loves to listen to music. Standing apart here is, perhaps, the VKontakte network with its truly huge database of songs and numerous users. And the choice of applications for playing music from VK for iOS is amazing: from the official client to a wide variety of players. At first glance, our today's hero does not stand out from his competitors. But only at first glance. So, welcome: the VTakte music player.
We open the application. The first thing that catches your eye after the first opening is a neat tutorial listing the main functions. Here I want to pay tribute to the developers – the guide turned out to be clear and very accurate. After reading the tutorial, you have to enter the login and password for your VKontakte account – a common practice for such applications. We give the necessary permissions for the program to work and get it.
Well what can I say .. Everything is very neat and, admittedly, aesthetically pleasing. The application is made in dark colors with orange controls and, in our opinion, is in perfect harmony with the style iOS 7. Generally speaking, the player controls are thought out to the smallest detail: buttons for play / pause, rewind, music search and additional functions are available from almost anywhere in the program, and to open a window with volume control, progress and operating modes, just one swipe from right to left is enough.

The application has excellent functionality and allows you to view the music of your friends, search for your favorite songs and sort the search results by various criteria. It is also available to add music to Favorites for its further listening in the absence of an Internet connection. Adding to Favorites is very simple: just move the line with the desired track to the right, and the download will start.
We start listening to music.
This is where VTakte reveals itself in all its glory. On the screen of the currently playing song, where the cover art is displayed,
there are three interesting buttons 'About artist', 'Similar' and 'Recommendations'. When you click on the first one, you can see a small help about the artist, 'Similar' is a list of similar artists, in the 'Recommendations', as you might guess, there are recommendations for the current song. Separately, I would like to dwell on the last point, since the recommendations offered by VTakte are strikingly different from what we see in other players. They really work, and the app offers exactly what you need. Therefore, as a rule, listening to one song turns into a long journey through an endless list of songs. This is how you discover new music and new artists.
The developers have not forgotten about such things as scrobbling in LastFM, sharing their favorite music and a unique feature – 'Automotive mode' with convenient large buttons ('Finally!', A motorist with fifteen years of experience shouts in me). And, of course, VTakte fully supports AirPlay.
In conclusion, I would like to note that the developers promise not to stop there and continue to improve their application. It's frankly hard for us to imagine what improvements can be made in terms of design, but a couple of additional features, like sorting the list of friends according to various criteria, probably won't hurt. But already now VTakte seems to us a complete product that we can safely recommend for purchase, you are guaranteed to be satisfied. Listen only to good music with VTakte – the best player for VKontakte.
