With PlayTally, you can create Replay-like lists of your top songs of the week, month, or year. In fact, you can create top songs lists for any time period. And since PlayTally lists are calculated dynamically there's no waiting for weekly updates.
How It Works
- PlayTally regularly scans your Apple Music library, and looks for changes in play counts that it uses to create a play-by-play record of your listening history.
- Your data is stored locally on your device, and optionally to your iCloud Drive. No signups, logins or subscriptions required. Your data is never shared with anyone, and may be removed at any time.
- As you collect more data, you can generate lists of your top listened songs over time, and see how your interests change.
Frequently Asked Questions
Pretty accurate, but nothing's perfect. The more frequently the app scans, the more accurate it will be. This is because each time PlayTally scans your library, it can only see the time stamp of the most recent play. If a song has been played more than once since the last scan, PlayTally will make its best guess.
I recommend keeping "Background Scan" enabled. This will allow PlayTally to scan the library periodically in the background (at times designated by iOS itself, but about every five minutes or so).
PlayTally scans the copy of the Library that exists on the device running it. You can easily sync data from multiple devices by enabling the Sync Library option in iOS Music Settings.
It is normal for playback data to take a while to sync via iCloud Music Library. A delay of several minutes to several hours is not unusual. If you suspect PlayTally has missed data, there is a manual scan option to detect it.
Nothing. Your data is stored on device (and optionally to iCloud) using the Core Data with CloudKit framework. Your data never leaves the Apple ecosystem is never shared with any third parties.
PlayTally history is based on the data it records. Which kinda makes sense, when you think about it.
Stats in the browse tab are calculated based on the play counts provided by your Apple Music library. The History tab, on the other hand, shows stats based on the playback history events that PlayTally records itself.
