Initially it looks good. I'm still going through it and will edit this post i'm sure. The first thing I noticed was your directions on how to add files. Anyone with common sense would be able to figure it out, however, for those that can't figure it out- you need to darken the text. White instruction text on a light background is hard to read. Other than that, so far so good!

Thanks, Ok it will be addressed in the coming build. We have no such issues in other skins: e.g. menu > more > select view > main view.

Just installed. Initial impressions are good.
The UI when the screen is rotated 90 degrees is a bit off-putting (ran that way for five minutes before re-orienting and getting the WAY pretty interface).
EDIT: Just read your reply about other skins. Fixed my issue. I'm retarded.

I dig it. More to come and I use and abuse it.

I'm been looking for an audio player that displays lrc lyrics. Otherwise some basic tag editing out be a nice touch as well.

There's a lot potential in this player and what it can do when it is fully developed, I love the equalizer, I think, one of the first, if not the first music player that offer eq that works! but some presets are always welcomed to be more user-friendly.. just my 2-cents

Why does it need location and phone state permissions? I think I'll stick to the stock, non stalker player.

Phone state (READ_PHONE_STATE) is used for handling the headset button (we don't handle it while incoming phone call)
Location (ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION) is used for ads
