    Default Finally found a better player than PowerAMP


    Free and paid versions. The paid version ($4) adds EQ and a bunch of audio options.

    I love the HOLO interface. Poweramp has always seemed a little cluttered to me. This player also has tons of options but they are a lot easier to get to. I also like that it consolidates actions...I can tell it to auto-shuffle-and-play a genre as soon as I click on it. These things usually involve more actions in Poweramp, and sometimes scrolling as well.

    I love the overrides it has. Playlists can be easily imported/exported, ID3 tags overidden (or even the reverse...you can force their use). You can edit ID3 tags from the app. Poweramp does most of this as well but it is a pain to figure out how. It's not always obvious.

    Finally, this player also doubles as a video player, with a very intuitive and minimalist UI.

    I've been a dedicated PowerAMP user for years but this app finally drew me away.

    +1, Jeff.

    Poweramp is fabulous for the features and options it has but I never liked the interface. 'Cluttered' is a good description. The developers have done a nice job on Rocket Player and earned my money. I'm actually a little nervous they are going to change the simplicity of the UI in an effort to add more features. Maybe I should switch autoupdates off. Maybe I should take a chill pill....

    What took you so long? Known about this for the last year, Poweramp is a memory hog compared to Rocket Player.

    I'm using Shuttle Music Player. Doing VERY well so far.
