with a good widget?
I quite like tunewiki and mixzing. Mixzing is good because it has an EQ now, which many lack. The widget is a nice album art widget.
+1 For Mixzing. Always found "3" (Cubed) quite good too.
+1 for MixZing.
Stock for me.
Tried others but don't find them as smooth.
Mixzing is 2nd best in my eyes though but all down to personal choice as always.
Just tried MixZing, liking it so far!
mixzing. How anyone can use the desire without the EQ set on mixzing is beyond me, (headphones of course)
okay downloaded mixzing and seems pretty good.
problem is though when i click on songs and play my music it will not skip after the song has finished and the skip button does not work
anyone have an idea how to fix?
Haven't really tried many but I quite like Zimly.Been using it for a while it's a nice no frills media player.
Meridian, registered version. Works really well. The only paid for app I have to date.
Museek is worth a look too for the 3D album art browsing...very clever....and one to watch for the future.
Wellibob, is the EQ really good ?. It's the one thing missing from Meridian that I really want...
I have problems with next track on Mixzing unless I go into all songs and suffle. If I select just one song, it wont move to another (I guess because its not playing 'all' or shuffle).
It depends where you select the track. If you select it from an Album you can Next Track to all songs on that Album. Same for Playlists. If you go from Songs it'll only know about 1 track. If you're on Shuffle it'll just pick a new track to play.
I love Mixzing, its by far the best music app I have tried.
couple of points about the equalizer in mixzing,
it uses slightly more power when you use the equalizer as it works the processor harder (mixzing does warn you about this).
and the equalizer works by, for example, if you want more bass, it cant actually 'add' bass, so it slightly reduces everything else to make the bass seem more proportionally. same with trebble etc.
neither points are a problem though. )
+1 for "3" cubed.
i was using mixzing for awhile and have recently been using museek. i've been trying to find something that works along the lines of itunes genius playlist feature (the only thing i miss from my old iphone). so far it's hit or miss; neither do a very good job yet.
that said, both are more than capable players. haven't tried 3 yet.
The difference using the EQ, when set correctly, is massive. Im dead fussy when it comes to how somethink sounds with my headphones on. This is the first phone, that im happy with, sound wise (so naff without mixzing eq). You have to be real careful when using the full range settings, and especially the db gain slider. All my mp3 music on the phone has already been gained (via mp3 gain on pc) to 92 db. Ive got Desire set, so the most heavy bass tunes , dont distort. (see image below) Ive found, these settings offer the greatest sounds. Adjust the treble and bass slider levels to suit, i like alot of both.
I like the Mixzing one too.
In fact, the stock one was sufficient for me.
Two niggles I have though:
1) No landscape album art cover flow on now playing
and 2) inability to go back to the same position that your library menu was on (i.e. how the iPod highlights the artist/album you were last on etc.)
Stock player with pure music widget
For me, its not how it looks, its how it sounds. Unless another player gives me the eq like mixing, I'll use nothing else
Mixzing is awesome and it has an EQ!!!!!
I've tried every media player i have come across and keep going back to the stock player.
Sticking with the one that came with the htc desire does me fine. As long as i can hear it and change to a new song, no issues at all.
I was looking for a player with the ability to take you back to where you where when you hit play. Does Mixzing do that? I haven't found a way to do it on the stock one.
I have given Mixzing another go as of last night.
Yeah it has an EQ but have found the levels much better with this turned off so thats no bonus for me.
So far at this time it does not have much/if anything over the stock one for me to warrant the adverts. In fact prefer the cover flow option within stock...Unless they have that in Mixzing and I've just not found it.
Have tried cubed (3) music player but find that cover flow box thing ugly.
Probably just me being picky but its personal taste as always. Saw a new one that has been released so will try that and update on here later
