As Apple continues to focus on Apple Music, it’s fair to say that some fans of listening to locally saved files feel left out. Doppler has long been a great app for listening to music files on iPhone and iPad, and now there’s an app for Mac too.
Created as a native application, there is no catalyst here, Doppler for Mac looks like it belongs on Apple computers. That’s not something that can always be said about iPhone apps making the switch to Mac, of course, but Doppler feels right at home. Unsurprisingly, the Mac version of the app has many of the same features that the iPhone app was so popular for, and users can move files between devices via a cable or Wi-Fi connection. You will always have your files with you!
In terms of which files will work with Doppler, I was told that MP3, FLAC, WAV, AAC, and more are supported, and adding music to Doppler is a simple drag-and-drop affair. Combining discs into individual albums, searching for artwork, and searching the entire library are features that are also included. Support for full library syncing is also in the works for an update that should also arrive before the end of the year.
Whether you’re listening with high-end headphones or the EarPods that come with your iPhone, there’s a definite case for using local files instead of streaming. Do you want to get the most out of those files? Take a look at our list of the best AirPods Max deals and treat yourself!
If you prefer to buy and own your music rather than broadcast it, Doppler is a great option for you. It’s available for free for seven days with a one-time purchase of $ 25 required after that. You can learn more about this update and where Doppler will go next, at announcement blog post, too.
