FAQ

1 How is the app FMFinder better than its competitors on the market?

FMFinder can access your entire music library. Several options are available to access your music library: by playlists, by albums, by artists or by browsing all the songs. The "now playing item" function will suggest songs based on the current playing song in Music application. When browsing the playlists, every playlist in your Music app will be present, selecting one playlist opens all songs of that playlist, and songs suggestions are based on the song selected from this playlist. The same applies for albums, and artists. Those are the unique features that we believe other competitors on the market do not have.

2 How do I use the Search, which is the prefer method of Search?

Search function in the application will give the results of the songs based on the song title or the artist name. If you know the artist name, it's usually a good strategy to enter the exact artist name. If you don't, you may enter the song title, however, results may be very large.



3 I open "Top Last.fm songs" and it does not display any song, what has just happened?


You might not be connected to the internet, or the server from last.fm stops responding for a while, you could check back later, or browse the iTunes songs, music videos as the alternatives.


4 I tap the button "Buy song on iTunes", but iTunes does not display the song in the Store. What happened?

You have to choose the country that is the same as the country you used to access iTunes in order to open the song. This can be done in Settings section of the application. Currently, limited countries are supported, we are working hard to bring all the countries available in the application.


5 How are the similarities between songs/artists defined?

Songs/artists similarities are determined by listening data from Last.fm, and besides, by an algorithm that combines the listeners number, songs/artists popularities, songs genres. Further details can be consulted in this article.



6 I opened a song in my iPod library, it does not show any similar songs. What happened?

The song you opened might be the new song that listening data has not been gathered on Last.fm, if you searched for that song using Search function, you might want to search again by using the Artist filter and input the Artist name, sometimes, the same song has multiple versions, only the one from the right artist gives the correct results on the graph.

7 Why can't I play some YouTube videos?


Google has different strategies on handling songs copyright in different market, so you might not be able to play the song related to the ones you are querying.

I tap on "Current playback song" and the app just shows me the "Info, there is no playing item in your iPod/Music app". What should I do?
