MusicSmart 2.0.2 brings new features for iOS 17, iPadOS 17, and macOS Sonoma including interactive widgets, support for StandBy mode on the iPhone, support for Lock Screen widgets on the iPad, and more. It also redesigns the list of credits to show the artist's profile picture.

Interactive Widgets

iOS and iPadOS 17 are getting a new interactive widget called Live Liner Notes, showing liner notes and credits for the currently playing song right on your Home Screen.

Redesigned Credits

The credits list now includes the artist's profile picture alongside their name and role, making it easier to spot the people who created that song.

Music recognition on macOS

Get liner notes and credits for songs playing around your Mac with music recognition powered by Shazam.


MusicSmart now shows tips about features you may not know about. This can be seen in the credits view, for example, which informs that you can customize which sections are visible.

Lock Screen Widgets

Small widgets have been redesigned to support the iPad's Lock Screen, giving you quick actions to get liner notes and credits.

StandBy Mode

Small widgets also support the new StandBy mode on the iPhone, giving you a way to quickly access MusicSmart's functionality when your iPhone is on its side and charging.
