Default good music player software for the 10.1

Hi there,

this is a thread to discuss music player software for the galaxy tab. So far I found 2 nice software players:

Play Music:
the default player has a nice eye-candy ui that looks good on the tab, but other than that it doesn't have much going for it. It lacks an equalizer and visualizations.

Android Music Player by JRTStudio:
this player comes with a clean ui, allthough it doesn't seem to be particularly suited for tablet devices. It also lacks some sort of fullscreen music visualization, but it comes with a good equalizer built in. That way, you can enjoy your music.

WinAMP for Android:
horrible UI, totally unsuited for tablet devices, lack of visuals and equalizer (EQ only in pro version).

do you know any alternatives (free or paid)? It would be nice if the software could show a nice music visualization on the screen while playing music.


Phone: Nokia Lumia 920, retired my HTC 7 Mozart
Tablet: Acer Iconia W510 (Windows 8) - finally got rid of the horrible Samsung Galaxy Tab (P7510)

I have very good references about this:

Here is the trial version.

I'm using the default music player, so i can't tell you about it.
Huawei Ascend G312 & Nexus 7 (16gb).

I'll give another 'thumb' to PowerAmp. I tried a few before this made the difference

I like the Toshiba media player. Works great on the 10.1

I got it from a thread here for apps from other tablets that work on the 10.1

Wow, PowerAMP looks really clean and works well. The sound options are just plain awesome. It still lacks visualizations but, damn this is a great player. But at a price of 4 not exactly cheap either. Gonna keep on using the trial for now, see if it's really worth that price tag

I've been using Jukefox for a few days. The first time you run it you need to wait a bit, but that's because its loading album art and generating a tag cloud. Not sure if I like it or not - I usually go for a really clean simple UI. But the way it presents your music isn't like any other player I've seen before.

poweramp as well, some troubles with a few FLACs, but mostly ok, just convert to AAC if you plan to play FLAC.....although it still doesnt sound as good as any android with the Wolfson exploit...aka Voodoo
