Showpieces Music Player

Showpieces is a music player for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad with a difference. While the default media player on the iPhone or iPad allows you to set up playlists of tracks, Showpieces allows you to define highlights of a track. Once a cue sheet of highlights has been created, you can choose to listen to the entire track or just the highlights. Additional markers may be placed inside a highlight section to act as bookmarks, giving you direct access to your favourite arias and choruses.

Showpieces is particularly suited to live recordings of concerts and operas in which a performance is naturally divided into several parts separated by intermissions. The intermissions often contain interesting material, such as interviews with the performers, that you will want to keep but may not want to listen to every time you play the track. With Showpieces, you have the option to listen to just the highlights or to the entire recording, without having to edit or make changes to the audio file.
