    hello there.
    i just bought an ipod touch 5th generation a week ago.
    i love music and i collect all the albums of artists i like. i bought my ipod primarily to use as an mp3 player. i'm so obsessed with mp3 tags, covers and lyrics. I behave them like they're my babies and find the highest quality covers for albums, check song informations one by one through wikipedia and discogs, add lyrics to songs one by one, etc. I can say I have an almost excellent mp3 arhieve.

    i wasn't intended to update my operating system but i accidentaly wondered what's it like and updated to ios 6.1.3 to 7.0.4.

    now the current music player of the device looks like *****. it's lame. it has nothing special in the name of appearance. it just looks like any cell phone music player. i hated it. and about the lyrics... when the lyrics are on (song is playing, screen is tapped and lyrics are shown), if I change the song, the previous song's lyrics remains in the screen. to change it, i have to tap it twice!!! Look at this bug!!

    Also, the re-arrangement of song-artist-album trio. it's total *****!

    What's the purpose of gathering an artists all songs when entering it's section? I listen complete discographies and it kills my time to find out the song on that lame list. In the past, it was much better. I was tapping on an artists name and then choose which album I want to listen and done! How pretty was that?

    I'm so dissapointed with the new changes and i want my old music player apperance back!

    Is there any possible way i can do that?

    Or is there maybe an application looks like it?

    Please help me, I tried downgrading my device at least 20 times and nothing worked. I can even return my device to the seller just for this. (can I?)

    Take a look at Ecoute. I use it as an alternative because I can 'queue' tracks. - L

    Djay 2 is really good and has a queue feature. I believe Sephora may still be giving away codes for that app.

    Try Lagu, it's free and basically identical to the iOS 6 app.

    I use TuneShell. I like that you can load up .flac files into it without having to convert them for iTunes. Also, it automatically pulls in your mp3s from the Music App and you can change Artist / Album art within the app and even manually change track is very robust.
