If you’re an Apple Music subscriber and felt left out by the plethora of Spotify Wrapped ‘year in review’ posts, there’s a workaround for you.

You can use an app called Music Year In Review, developed by music social network NoiseHub, which puts together your listening habits this year, as spotted by TechCrunch.

Unlike Wrapped, which compiles your top 100 Spotify songs of the year in a playlist, calculates how many total minutes you streamed, and collates the number of new artists you discovered; the Apple Music workaround is undeniably simpler.

In Music Year In Review, you can generate a card showing how long you’ve spent listening to your favourite artist, your top genre/artist/song, and your top five songs and artists on Apple’s streaming service.

That’s about it, but you can share these stats in a social media-friendly image direct to Instagram or Twitter.

If the data doesn’t go deep enough for you, there are alternative apps in snd.wave and Play Time, which offer up more detail about your listening habits, albeit without the pretty card format that Music Year In Review offers.

All this points to Apple Music needing its very own native ‘year in review’ feature, which, given how widely shared Spotify’s Wrapped has been, seems like a no-brainer.
