Default Best Nexus 5 Music Manager?

I'm looking for a recommendation on a decent music player app. My gripe with Google's one is that I can't make my own custom playlist with my own songs I copied to the device. Then a have a couple of instances where it would stop playing music and I would have to FC and open it again.

Thanks in Advance

I feel the same way I just use avia now though since I paid the 3 dollars for Chromecast and Dropbox. Honestly a great investment since I still have 50gb dropbox space from my s4. Makes being stuck on the 16gb not as bad because it frees up a lot of space. Although I never had any problems with play music and playlists it doesn't sound as good through headphones or an aux cable

I like simple, yet elegant. I very much dig Apollo. I kinda set my standards to that. I do a lot of driving and my phone is my music player. As big as the selections are for it, its the best so far. WALKMAN in 2nd and Omich player in 3rd. (Its basicly Apollo with more features that you have to pay for. And some basic Apollo stuff is paid too)

Thumbs down jetAudio

If you guys havent tried Jetaudio plus. Do so. great eq and audio enhancement options. and 20 band eq is just off da hook.

The only prob is...our stock headphones dont have extra buttons for song change, volume etc. Once u pause a song while your playlist is in shuffle, it re starts the playlist from any other random song.

I use the Gonemad music player. Love the functionality in it, and it is compatible with Viper4Android.
