I am having trouble finding a free iOS app that can simply load a bunch of MP3s (via 'File Sharing' from iTunes) and sort all tracks in the app by release year as taken from the MP3 tags.

I have tried:

  • VLC (no feature to sort by anything)

  • Apple Music (can only sort songs or albums by 'Title' or 'Artist')

  • foobar2000 (despite a 'Sort albums by date' setting, it doesn't change from alphabetical order by default)

The free VOX iOS app will do this.

You can sort by 'Artist then Year' in either 'Item View' or 'Track View'.
