Create your 2018 retrospective on Apple Music with this shortcut

Apple Music Wrapped, atalho criado para retrospectiva do serviço

One of the coolest things about Spotify is the tool Wrapped, released every end of the year so that users have an overview of their favorite songs from the last 365 days, with the most listened to styles and artists, trends, favorite songs and playlists personalized. THE Apple Music, at least officially, it doesn’t have the same thing, but someone decided to take the challenge for themselves.

Federico Viticci, from MacStories, recently shared his shortcut Apple Music Wrapped, which uses iOS’s own permissions to the Shortcuts app to create a special page, open in Safari (with custom CSS and everything!), which shows exactly your most listened to songs, favorite artists and styles, an art with your nine most listened albums, time statistics of the songs heard and, if you wish, a playlist with the 100 most listened songs over the last year. It is still possible to generate a PDF with all the data!

Its installation is very simple, just add it to your list in the Shortcuts app and make a brief configuration, informing how many songs it should analyze and the year of analysis – by default, there are 100 songs during 2018, but you can check retrospectives from previous years for a larger set of songs.

It is good to remember that the statistics take into account only songs saved in your library; if you have obsessively listened to a song throughout 2018 but have played it every time, say, by searching, it will not appear in the count. Limitations, limitations …

The shortcut created by Viticci can be downloaded here and in this article it is possible to read all the challenges and limitations that the developer went through until he was able to finalize the project, classified by himself as the most complex shortcut ever created by him.
