What's a good alternative to the iOS Music app? I tried VOX and hate it. There has to be something out there that's decent. The Music app has been devolving into garbage for a while now, but seemed to complete its transformation in iOS 10. A bonus would be if it can stream from Samba shares.

I hate the music app, too! It looked gorgeous on iOS 9 with the frosty transparency and colored gradients. Right now it looks big, boxy and overall hideous! Its like watching windows 10 going back to 95. What on earth is going on with those big fonts!? Don't they have a designing team? It breaks my heart. I have barely listened to music on my iPhone since the release because I cannot get past the hideous design. These days i just go on YouTube for music, even though it's video based.
