Naxos Music Library iPhone App is Live!

Hi All,

The Naxos Music Library iPhone App is now Live! You are now able to listen to your personal and account created playlists on the iPhone and iPod Touch!

For more information on the "Nuts & Bolts" of how the app works, see this post.

Search the iTunes App Store for "Naxos Music Library" to download the Free App, or follow this link!

What a thrilling day for the world of classical music!

Here's a step by step walk-through from finding the app, to synching your device!

1. Enter "Naxos Music Library" ("Naxos" works too) in the iTunes store Search box.

2. Click on "Get App"

3. Enter your Apple ID, or create a new account. Download the App.

4. Once the App has been downloaded, ensure it's in queue to be synched up. I've taken a shot below of everything "as it should be". If you've installed an App from the iTunes store before, it's exactly the same as every App!

Once the App is Installed, it's time to make sure you have some playlists!

1. Visit the NML. If you are an student or member of an institution, you can visit your institutions unique webpage. Ask your Librarian, Account Administrator, or us here at Naxos if you have questions!

2. Any playlist in your personal folder, or account folder will be available. Below is a shot from a University account. Individual subscribers won't need to adjust anything, or log in a second time, to create playlists!

3. Oh, and lest we forget: The iPhone App, synchs both your Naxos Music Library, and Naxos Music Library Jazz playlists! Here's a screenshot of my iPod Touch. The playlist "Allison Wedding " (a very cool Jazz singer) , is an NMLJazz Playlist, while "Bernstien Mass" is an NML palylist.

We'd like to also take a moment and give a very big "Thanks" to our developers!

From all of us at Naxos, Happy Remote Listening!


  1. Naxos is one of the very few library vendors that delivers on content, usability, technology and value.

    This is another nice way to get our licensed content into our users spaces.

  2. Thanks Peter!

    It's great to hear from our users!

  4. Where can librarians find info on this, i.e. set up, does it count against simultaneous users, etc.?

  5. @Kathy

    Information on how the App works is available in an earlier post:

    If you have more questions, feel free to call or e-mail. My info is above!

    And in answer to your second question, Yes, since you're streaming music a Simultaneous User space is occupied by logging into the iPhone App.


  6. Any chance of a similar offering for those of us with slightly older web-capable bricks...I mean smart phones?

  7. @Anonymous

    We're already in process of creating app's for things like the Blackberry, Android, and other smart phones!

    Look for more information soon!

  8. Congratulations! Keep up the good work.

  9. Of course, when you're streaming music, a Simultaneous User space is occupied by logging into the iPhone Application.

  10. Awesome! I'm running an older (second-hand) Leopard system, and just getting in to iPhone development. Was having problems figuring out how I was going to do it, until this.

  11. Hi,

    What about the Android app? It has been about nine month from this post where you mention your team is working on it. I hope it is still planned to release it.

    Any progress on this?
    Waiting for BlackBerry version.

  13. For those asking about our Android app, that's coming out next week, so be ready!

  14. Another BlackBerry user here. I would most likely have subscribed to Naxos instead of Rhapsody, but only Rhapsody has released a BlackBerry app. Any ETA? Thanks.

  15. Is it possible to make a personal playlist available to another person who has this app, too?

  16. Not at this time, but we're talking about it!

  17. am i able to access my playlists (created online) on using the app on my ipod touch? i have created one online, but it doesnt show up on my handheld device.

  18. Hi Alison -
    You should be able to. Are you logging in to the app with your e-mail and custom password? If you need help, please e-mail nmlhelp[at]naxosusa[dot]com.

  19. Using the Android app here on a Nexus S. I'm happy :D

  20. ipad? flash player?

  21. The iPhone app will work on iPad, and it's meant to circumvent the need for Flash Player since mobile Apple devices are not into it.

  22. Waiting for BlackBerry version…

    1. Because of the rapidly changing and expanding market for devices that require custom apps, we are currently focusing on creating a way for NML to be available on any device with an internet connection. While we do not yet have a timeline set in stone for this feature, it is very much in development, and more will be announced when it is ready.
