    Hi all

     

    Same problem here - ever since upgrading to iOS5 the music app on my iPad 2 and iPhone 4 just crashes on opening or very shortly afterwards. I have about 7000 songs and numerous smart playlists and who knows how much album art that is bigger than the constraints mentioned here - I sure as **** am not going to start trying to delete and/or edit playlists or album art - Apple SORT THIS OUT NOW!.

    As an interesting note, my grilfriend and housemate who have much simpler (i.e. no smart playlists) and smaller libraries are not experiencing any of these problems so that is consistant with what is being said elsewhere here.

    And i have removed all the music during  sync and re-synced it to no avail.

    aaaargh!

    My problem is that the Music app is very slow on my iPhone 4 since iOS5. Sometimes I see only a black/white screen for like 15 sec (or it crashes) when I launch it the first time, and when I open my "Favorite tracks" smart playlist (1004 tracks) it takes another 10-15 sec to open it every time I want to open it after I come back to the Music app. This problem (smart playlist) started when I enabled "Limit to '1500' tracks selected by 'most often played' " because without this the playlist was "upside down" (since the iOS5 update). I have synced a copy of the playlist on my iPhone without this option on and I have no problem with this playlist. Really horrible music app in iOS5 compared to iOS4 if you ask me. Almost feels like the music app from my iPod touch running iOS 3.1.3.

    I had the same slowness problem (and a couple of others) as well and fixed it.  Although I also feel like the new Music App is a downgrade, it runs as smoothly as the iPod App now.

    I've just downloaded the update, the features are good, especially the camera features

    But when i went to my music,  i found that loads of my artists were either not showing up, got a different name, made two artists out of themselves (ie.'[dweeb]' thats what i've always had for this band, now there's two. One says '[dweeb]'  but there's now another called 'Dweeb' , which i particularly dont like as I like all my artists in one place). I'll be very pleased when this problem is sorted and 'ASAP please Apple' :/

    Same for me. iPad music app is now almost unusable. Am thinking of switching to android ad using app so I can access iTunes where all my music is stored.

    Have you tried any of the fixes linked above?

  • 115. Re: Problems with IOS 5 Music App

    Ys. I wiped the iPad ad did a full reinstall. I regularly have to do a reset. This is also sometimes necessary as it fails to connect with my wireless airport express. It is all very tiresome. I presume a fix will come out in the next week or so. It is not as if Apple doesn't have enough money!!!

    On a related subject is that all the artwork associated with podcasts has gone. Not the end of the world but tiresome as they all used to be there. It seems to affect the iPad only.

    I had the same problem with some of the artwork missing from the Music App on my iPad initially until I deleted all of the music off of my iPad and then did a re-sync.  It's all there now.  I also know of a couple of folks that had to wipe and re-sync their music a couple or three times to get everything working right.  What a pain, but at least it's working now. 

     

    I've also read that cover art over a certain size (can't recall if it's 500 x 500 or 1000 x 1000 pixels) can cause serious problems.  Once folks remove those things seemed to work normally.

     

    Resetting the iPad (hold home and sleep/wake buttons together for a full ten seconds...until the Apple logo appears) got my Music App to respond normally as well.

     

    Best of luck!

    Fab advice. I followed it to the letter and it worked. Thank you.
