    I am new to this forum, and a fairly new iPad Mini user. I have an extensive amount of my personal CD's and LP's that I've converted to MP3 format. I use Dropbox as the interface between my PC and my iPad, but when I load a folder of MP3 tracks to Dropbox, the player will only play a single track. At some point in time, while surfing the 'Net, I found a reference to a Playlist App for $4.99 that two people stated was the best app that they had ever purchased. But today I cannot recall the name of the app. So I'm in need of a recomdation of a Playlist maker app that will allow me to play a continous list of 50 or more tunes consecutively using my iPad.

    Hello & welcome to the forum! :) Just a question - are you using iTunes on your PC to backup your iPad Mini (whether cabled or wireless)? If so, your music can be added to your iTunes library, playlists can be made, and the desired MP3 files and playlists can be either synced or directly transferred to your iPad. If you are not using iTunes then you still should be 'backing up' your iPad to the cloud. Let me stop there and please respond concerning my questions? Dave

    Why not use itunes? What you want to do is what it's designed to do.

    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    There's SongBox Player for DropBox Free (app from App Store, for iPhone) that can stream your music from DropBox. I suggest you take a look at it. Maybe it does what you need. Here's the link to App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/at/app/songbox-player-for-dropbox/id459822256?l=en&mt=8
    There's also a paid version (0,89 €). It's not the one you're looking for, maybe it's a good surrogate.
