    I like the stock music app but it seems laggy and force closes a lot. Its there a better music player app?

    I've been using miXing (paid version) for over a year now and I like it a lot. Poweramp looks great, too.

    I had been using poweramp and like it a lot but just recently tried Jet Audio and love it. To me it seems like Jets EQ and sound settings seem fuller and more dynamic.

    There will be almost as many opinions on this as there are actual music players.

    I used "3" for the longest time, but now use TuneWiki. I like the lyrics and social aspect....

    Cubed is decent, Power Amp is my favorite. Meridian is good as well. If you are a fan of lyrics, MusicXmatch is pretty good. I prefer Power Amp because it has a very useful settings most players lack, and it never gets buggy on me.

    I've been using PowerAmp since several months and it is plain awesome. You should definitely check it out - PowerAmp on Play Store

    If you're looking for an awesome free music player, I'd recommend to check out DoubleTwist. Its user interface is really sleek and can manage much more than just music - podcasts, videos and even online radios.

    DoubleTwist on Play Store

    musiXmatch is also a great player if you want an app that can fetch lyrics. I found it better than TuneWiki as it was easily able to fetch non-English songs as well.

    May I suggest you my list of some of the best music player apps for Android - apps list - I've listed the pros and cons of four of the best players available :)

    I use winamp at home. On my phone I tried winamp and poweramp and just like Poweramp better. Winamp still has some features that make it attractive though like being able to just enter internet radio station addresses, but all the stations I want are on Tune-in already.

    I've been using Meridian because it allows me to use most of the controls on the headphones I buy that are made for the iPhone (Monster w/ Controltalk, Sony and a Samsung one for Android that came with the Galaxy 7 Plus). Great for taking calls and skipping/pausing tracks but no volume control.

    I am using Car Tunes when in the car because the controls on the screen are higher up (instead of the bottom of the screen like most players). The voice commands are interesting but I'm still getting used to them.

    Power amp is good, but Neutron blows them all away for sound quality

    I use DoubleTwist or Play (Google) Music. DoubleTwist is good because it has a nice user interface, and it is easy to use. Started using Play Music since the ICS update because it now has EQ settings.

    I haven't tried any apps but Play Music and My Music. Both work OK for what I want except I can't keep the screen from timing out. PIA if you need to pause or change songs while driving.
    Any suggestions for a player that will keep the screen up?
    Thanks
