Default Music Management

What is everyone using to manage their music? I started with the native Samsung Music app, but it seemed a bit clunky and didnt transfer my playlists from iTunes accurately.

I then tried DoubleTwist, and although it is better that the native app, it seems to drop on me alot. It also seems to randomly lose songs and then they show up later. Okay, but their must be better, right?!

Any suggestions to other music apps? I used to use Google Play alot, but it was crap (IMO). I've been revisiting it the last few days and seems to have improved greatly and I will probably use alot more, but I dont always want to stream and need music installed on my phone.

Thanks in advance!!

I use Player Pro (which I highly recommend) to play my music and iTunes (on my Macbook Pro) together with iSyncr to sync music between the phone and my computer. I have used iSyncr for a couple of years and it works pretty well. It's certainly not as simple to use or as elegant as using iTunes with my iPhone 5 but it does the job fine.

For a music player, Player Pro is good. For transferring your iTunes music to your phone, check out TuneSync. I like it a lot better than Double Twist.

Had the best luck with my iMac using Kies but with an important caveat. Make sure you use the OEM data cable that came with the phone for the USB hook-up to your computer.

Player Pro costs $5.

I tried the free version of Winamp, but didn't like it. I'll stay with stock for now. I've read that Poweramp is pretty good but it's not free ($4).
