    2. I downloaded both doubleTwist and a few other music sync apps; all without much luck. I have a 16GB SD card that is totally empty. I have about 5000 songs in my iTunes folder (mainly from CDs but also from Limewire and other sources); none of these apps I use is able to transfer more than 150-200 sogs to my MUSIC folder. And none of them transfered any of my podcasts

    Any ideas what the problem could be?
    Any luck with that yet?

    I just drag & drop from the PC to the SD after I have mounted the phone.

    If you have a lot from CDs & Limewire, like I do, you might want to look at MixZing since it will download album art automatically.

    Another cool one - not related to your questions - that I downloaded recently is TuneWiki. It gives you the lyrics in a karaoke style - they can be toggled off and on or go full screen. Currently I'm using TuneWiki and MixZing for my MP3s and happy with both.

    I tried btunes, mixzing, nemo, mort, cube,double twist, and Lithium. So far Lithium is my favorite. I like the gapless play back and cross fader. You can change the interface color. To avoid playing video game sound files you could choose what folder to play music from.

    So here's my issue. I have about 16g worth of music in itunes. Most were dowloaded from cds but alot purchased from itunes as well. Got a new laptop earlier this year and when I loaded my music I ended up with a ton of duplicates. One of the duplicates is a bad file that wont even play. Downloaded double twist and it turns out that i need to upgrade to itunes plus because most purchases are older. What I want to do is completely get away from itunes all together. How do I get rid of all the duplicates without having to manually delete each individual one and what player is beat for my incredible? Also do I have to put all other on SD or can I use some of the 6g internal that have available? Thanks in advance.

    Yes, bTunes has lockscreen play controls.

    I don't have my Android phone yet, but bTunes seems to be the closest app to "FlickTunes" that I use on my iPod Touch. bTunes is supposed to let you swipe to the next track which is what I want. It's great for driving and not having to look at your phone to change tracks.

    Read up through this thread and you'll get info on pretty much all of them. There are a lot of good options - many free, none very expensive. Have fun!

    I am tired of my droid 2's stock music player. I tried the free version of mixzing but I didn't like it. The lock screen was the worst part, it would come up when then I had to click go to lock screen then unlock my phone. I may give it another shot down the road. My question is about Lithium, does it have the ability to adjust the song at the lock screen? The stock player integrates nicely with the lock screen but it doesn't seem to cut it for me (kinda laggy and I'm only using 4gbs)

    Yes. Lithium has the best lock screen controls I've seen in a music player.

    I know this may be a stupid little feature, but it has come in handy, I had a Palm Pre and the Music Player (Remix) has a "lyric" feature so if you are listening to a song you can tap on it and it instantly accesses lyrics.com and gives you the lyrics. Does any of these music players have that option?
    same here, I loved Dan and his apps

    so ... does anyone know of a plyaer that shows lyrics?

    ^ I think wikitunes has that option, but it's not a really good music player overall. What I use for this is Soundhound. If I hear a song that I want to read the lyrics, I fire up Soundhound and let it find the lyrics.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll check out soundhound.

    Right now I am giving MixZing and Instant Lyris Lite a whirl.

    First impression? Good.

    From what I can see, there isn't a music player with lyrics integrated (at least I haven't discovered it yet .. for free apps ... thought I came across a paid one but can"t recall right now)

    ^ my bad... Wikitunes is actually called Tunewiki Social Media Player.

    Soundhound is a paid app, but worth it in my opinion. It will even recognize songs just by humming it into the speaker... all depending on your humming skills, of course.

    There seems to be alot of players that provide interesting functions like tag editing, voice commands, download art - which is all nice, but it would seem that the most basic features aren;t available in alot of players - such as - reading music from both internal memory and the SD card and combining them (Mixzing does this most do not); remembering the last position - this is something that is hit-or miss. I haven't tried any paid apps, maybe there is one that's reliable?
    Is there any app that you can rate a song 1-4 stars that will transfer back to the PC? What I'd like to do is rate songs and keep a playlist of songs 3 stars or better - i haven't found an app that could do this.

    Anyone know of a music player app that will play music files by the full disk in the order on the original CD? It really sucks when you try to listen to The Wall and the songs are all out of order because the default player plays the songs in alphabetical order.

    PS a player that has a stop button would be great too!

    Let me know please!

    Considering my external just broke on me so I have no way to put music on my Fascinate and I lost my 45GB of music, I like Pandora.
