Hey all. First I will say that I am NOT the creator of this app, nor do I have anything to do with its development. I am simply sharing it since I found a topic on it on the general Android app forums on XDA and have come to love it IMMENSELY.

-FULL 10-band Equalizer
-BEAUTIFUL and RESPONSIVE clean interface
-Swipe support for changing songs with impressive 3D animation
-Support of just about EVERY music format known to man WITH equalizer and preamp support on all
-Folders as PLAYLISTs support
-Pretty widget
-Easy to navigate, FAST

Did I mention that if you use it on a Galaxy S device, it can sound VERY VERY impressive due to the Galaxy S having a really high-end sound chip (either the best or one of the best on the market currently). To boost the volume use it in conjunction with Audioboost based on supercurio's audio fix. You can find Audioboost on the market or somewhere on the XDA forums.


Video of the usage:

As it is not yet officially out, it has not been released in the Market. The player is still in beta. When it's out though, I'm buying it first chance I get and you should too.

Thanks to misticjeff for posting download links:

Woah, I love it. Proper playlist recognition as well so now I can use my playlist files again.

Great software, but people throw around "best music player on Android" too often without realising that it may be only be the best for their use.

I prefer WinAmp for my use for a number of reasons:
- I don't use an EQ, the GS has perfect sound reproduction, so its really not neccessary
- folder play is irrelevant to me since I have a properly tagged music collection
- WinAmps widget is better IMO, and lockscreen widget control is nice
- PowerAmp lacks LastFM scrobbling

(WinAmp also supports playlists, which is indeed nice, hopefully one of these two will support browsing/playing by Genre soon, but for the meantime I have playlists for each genre as a workaround)

nice, but still prefer winamp because of one thing: playlist sync.

i don't wanna have to make my playlists on my phone. i'd rather make them on my pc and sync them to my phone.

hope the dev integrates that function, and i'll switch.

installed the app to check it out and it's reading the playlists from the music i synchronized with winamp. looks like i'm switching after all.

Song lyrics
Is there (or will be) any built-in function to search lyrics?
Alternatively, how can I display lyrics file (.lrc) into the application?

Great application, anyway.

New build 113 definitely is nice.
too bad this version will expire in a couple of weeks.
And strange, most (but not all) of the album arts (I named them AlbumArt.jpg) are not showing on the play screen in this built. build 68 worked just fine.

anyone got similar experience?

any solutions?

i already tried "clear albumart cache and reload media"
