    I read a review for the Droid Incredible not too long ago in which the reviewer said that he preferred to use a different Media App instead of the stock sense one that comes with the Incredible. Anyone know what app this was?

    Well I did find the app and it was a music player app that was recommended in the Droid Incredible review by Phone Arena.

    The App is called

    btunes and tunewiki are pretty decent for music. btunes looks and feels like the iphone music player. For movies i used mVideoPlayer it does what i need. Meridian is also really popular, both are free.

    I tried a couple of them, so far my favorite is bTunes because it is fast and is much easier to navigate than the others. It's not free though. $1.49

    Search "rockon" in the market. It also has a built in album art finder. Very nice app that includes a cool music widget in 3 sizes.

    cubed/rockon is a disaster for me
    album arts don't load and playlists are all weird

    seems like standard music player is the best

    It doesn't seen the onboard storage. This is a feature that was included and has been crippling. 8gb of storage and we can't access it? WHAT?!

    I did copy over some music to my SD card and I must agree. The album art was a little odd (though I've got Album Art Grabber, so not a big deal), it actually had the wrong art on some stuff. The player is about average. With a little work it could be a knockout app, though.

    For video I use Act1. It's decent, though not much better than the stock player.

    I really don't understand what is wrong with the standard music player. Everything seems very functional and it looks and works great. I just wish there was an album cover finder for it.

    You could try Zimly media player. I won't pass judgement on the player (because I am one of the devs working on it) but I will say this... we are one of the few players that bring audio and video together, the developers are friendly and we work our asses off trying to make it better.

    As for other players... I have tried most of the other players including Cubed, Rockon, Mixzing, Tunewiki. Hell that was the reason I wanted to build Zimly in the first place... the only one I would recommend from that list is Tunewiki. Cubed has an interesting interface... but its not very functional... it's like trying to browse your music using only Coverflow (on iTunes... looks nice but not very convenient).

    Anyways back to Zimly... it's free so you don't lose anything by downloading it. All I ask is for your feedback because that is the only way it is going to get better.

    My preferred player is Mixzing. :) It's convenient, has a great lock widget, and always downloads (when it can) cover art. It's free, but I know that Lock widget is going to disappear on me soon, so if you want that you have to pay $6.99 for the full version -- a little steep for an app, I know.

    However, to me, it's the best. :D

    Hope that helps,

    just downloaded. looks ok, if a bit sparse for now. the real problem is that it didn't find the media on the internal storage - only on the SD card.

    Are you using an Incredible? I had someone else contact me about a similar problem on the Incredible. We haven't had a chance to look into the issue yet, but it is on our list of things to do.

    And by the way thanks for downloading Zimly. It is still an early stage project, and it might not make you change your mind about using the stockplayer yet... but it will one day soon. If you have any suggestions on how to make it better, please do tell us.
