    I've tried quite a few of these, Poweramp and Neutron seem best sound-wise, but I agree that they're fiddly. I currently have Neutron on my Razr Maxx, find it really difficult to manage, difficult UI. Probably going to uninstall it and go back to one of the many players I've used, maybe Poweramp again (have tried Meridian, Winamp (buggy), Doubletwist, Mixzing, and some more of the usual suspects). I've decided I don't really love using my phone as my music player, anyway. I often plug into a pair of speakers at work, have to leave it and not receive calls to do that. Also calls interrupt the flow of the players. I do subscribe to Mog, which has much flexibility and can be used on phone, computer, iPad, etc. Also some streaming apps to listen to music from my PC. Generally, I just prefer a dedicated digital audio player, and use my ipad, ipod touch, and HiSound Audio Studio V player for listining that is more than casual, but not at the main stereo.

    Noozy was removed from the market because it was basically a complete rip off of Zplayer. It was a great app and when I found out it had been removed, I bought Zplayer, so if you like Noozy, Zplayer is worth a go as well.

    N7 Player is quite nice sound wise and has a pretty unique UI too.

    I'll need to look in to Neutron, thanks for the tip :).

    Noozy was a rip off? Thanks for the heads up! I did know it was supposed to look like microsoft's zune, but didn't think it would be a rip off. Will edit my previous comment.

    I have to say Neutron is actually very good sounding...didn't believe it would make a difference on my phone, but it does. The user interface, however, has repeatedly stymied me and prevented me from actually being able to enjoy it. Maybe the more tech-savvy out there won't find it as daunting.

    Yep, take a look at the screenshots of Zplayer, Noozy was identical.

    Can I post another reminder that this topic is for members to highlight their favourite apps, not developers to pimp their products? We have an Application Announcements section where such posts are welcome.... nowhere else.

    Thank you.

    Although I have not used a whole lot of music apps. Playerpro is definitely up there.

    Hey guys! I'm having a Samsung Galaxy S Duos (S7562).. I've tried a many times to play videos in it but there's a stupid problem, I have tried .flv format of 40:33 mins about 315 MB (and many more).. The picture comes first and audio lags behind.. and after some seconds audio flashes out and then try to cope up with the picture. This video is working great on PC but having trouble on phone.

    I've tried more videos but the problem is same for all kinds of videos.
    Please help.. I thought it would be great to watch movies but this phone is shitting..

    I have tried and used all of media players listed. My favorite is still Sony's Walkman music player. It has the best UI, in my opinion, that is functional in both landscape and portrait. It also has the built in visualizations. The only downside is you have to be rooted to install and it isn't compatible with Jelly Bean yet.

    MixZing is an all round good media player but the interface is a bit dated. Some skins would be welcome.

    Since my last post I've gone with Sensor Music Player. It has most of every feature I'm looking for while still using Folder format not tags.

    Ok, while I think Neutron is truly superior audio quality, I'm ready to ditch it because of the UI. From an audiophile perspective, is there an easier to use, good sounding app out there? On a side note, recently got a dock for the Razr, with an audio out (and a video out). Is this "line out", meaning it skips the phone amp and uses the external amp it's connected to? Just curious...

    Not sure about the dock question, but look at zplayer or N7, either coupled with noozxoide enhancer sound pretty good and have decent UI.

    Went to the link, tells me app not compatible with my phone (Razr Maxx) maybe that's why I couldn't find it initially
    I am rooted, curious about the Sony player, any information how to find it?

    Based on some of the posts in this thread, I'm trying zplayer, and I'm really liking it except for one thing - album art seems rather fickle. it works on the main player screen, but not on the widget. Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

    I'm pretty tied up in Itunes with my music. I listen to a lot of electronic music where the tracks can be 6/7/8 mins long and have a lot of tracks set in itunes to start/end at specific times. Are there any android music apps that will sync my itunes along with the specific start/end times?
