    Hi everyone,

    I asked this question a few month back without much success, and I'm wondering if since then some new apps came out that can do what I need.

    Basically, I'm looking for a music app that would work the way the stock app used to work before iOS 7. Most importantly, it should be able to display long titles. I listen to classical, and songs usually have very long titles that start exactly the same. Here's an example:

    As you can see, the list of tracks is absolutely useless (by the way, this is an album purchased from iTunes).

    Before iOS 7, I could tap and hold to see the full title, but not anymore. If you know an app that has this capability, I would love to hear about it.

    Thanks

    You shouldn't have to do that, the feature for seeing long titles should still be in the music app.

    I was going to recommend Track 8, but it seems it has been removed from the App Store.

    It has a customisable Windows Phone-like interface (which may or may not be a good thing depending on one's taste), but it scrolls any names that don't fit on screen (not just song titles).

    This is what it looks like (it's currently in the middle of scrolling):

    I agree: renaming just a two dozen of track may seem like a not a big deal, but I have over 13,000 tracks in my iTunes library. Who knows how many of them have to be renamed just because Apple removed a function from its software.

    Looks like you are right: Track 8 is not in the app store. Also, it's Facebook page has not been updated since 2013. I guess they stopped developing the app.

    I could not find any information on whether Ecoute supports showing long titles. Can you please confirm this?

    It does not look like Lagu can show long titles. Thanks for the suggestion though.
