    Real player beta and Google music
    I like real player beta because it has the controls on the lock screen.

    After about a years use if MixZing to Poweramp. I love the interface and GUI. One of the most visually appearing apps I have ever used. The built-in EQ is actually useful. I love the lock screen widget.

    When playing tracks, the background of the GUI in Poweramp changes to match the color on the album cover. Very slick.

    The only problem with power amp is that since it's not default, you can't use gestures like palm or turn over to mute. That and if you click on a music file you searched for with universal search, there's no way to get it to play through power amp.

    Edit : I think it would be sweet if poweramp made a desktop application. It would completely replace iTunes and make syncing totally painless.

    A cloud/desktop power service would just crush everything..... Smh...I wish they could just tap in my google profile and I'd be on cloud 9

    I like Maple Mp3 Player. It has great EQ, speed and repeat functions. Good for when I'm trying to learn new songs! It's a relatively new player. It's not as developed and polished as PowerAmp but the dev is working hard on it and he is very responsive to emails and feature requests.

    Just switched to Player Pro a few days ago and love it...I was using Google music, but I kept on having issues where the album art would disapear, and the length of the track would go blank. For example it would switch from 4:30 to just -:--.

    With Google Music, you'd need a connection all the time, no?

    I'm using the default app for now, but may have to look into something else. I need to convert some of my iTunes song to remove DRM or something. I'm a bit pissed that I'm so 'deep' into the Apple ecosystem!

    I think you can designate certain songs to be available offline, the way you can with Google books or Google drive. Then you can hear them anywhere even without connection.

    Yes. For any music loaded on google servers, you can select to make those available off line. They will then download and store locally on your phone so they are available when no service is on.

    Also, any music you manually load onto the phone (either on the phone or on the SD card) will show up in Google Music and be available even when not hooked up to the web.

    Google Music. I might try out power amp for the songs stored on my sd card. I just love having all 40gb's of my music at my disposal with Google Music. My only gripe is the streaming on 3g sucks. I don't have 4glte in my area yet but once I do Google Music will be the ultimate.

    So many Power Amp fans...no love for PlayerPro? Been using it for over a year. It has pretty much everything I can ask for and then some. Tagging, equalizer, automatic artist and album artwork retrieval, artist info, skins, folder view, playlist support (although it doesn't work with foreign artists), and more stuff that I don't remember.

    I've been using DoubleTwist a lot. Mainly I got it to sync music with ITunes, which it does pretty well, including bringing over the playlists. I think I had to pay extra to get the ability to sync music wirelessly. My S3 doesn't play nice when plugged in the the USB to the computer, so wireless was the only option I could get to work. I think it also gave me the option of where to store the music - regular storage or SD card. That gave me the ability to move lots of music onto my card. Now, if I could only figure out a way to get my really old Itunes DRM protected files to play without paying Apple more money for music I already paid for!

    I was looking at doubletwist before, but since it didn't work over wired connection I didn't try it. I didn't want to pay for an app before trying it out.

    Just found out that Google Voice search can open music in PowerAmp. But it won't start playing the song right away it'll take you to the poweramp search screen and show you the results.

    I've been pretty happy with the paid version. I even paid extra to get Podcasts. The sync worked well too. Now I have all my Itunes music on my card and I think other programs can access it as well, although I have noticed some missing information when using the stock music player, as others have pointed out.

    I like Google Music only because I can listen to my music that is stored in the cloud.

    For the 25 Gigs of music that are stored on my phone (for when I'm in the air), I liked the stock player until I figured out how hard it was to go back to my music folder while an album was currently playing. Recently, I switched to PowerAmp and I like it so far (still in the trial version)...but I like the navigation and I really like all of the settings I can mess with!

    Yet ANOTHER POWER AMP junkie right HERE! Been using POWER AMP for quite some time. I've tried a few others......"uninstalled"!!! And I believe someone mentioned in an earlier posting but I will say it again anyway. The ear buds sound GREAT listening to Power Amp via my GS3.

    Sensor Music Player for when I am driving and have it hooked up to the stereo.

    Only reason: wave your hand in front of the phone to change tracks. No looking at the phone or having to touch any buttons. I just create my driving playlist and start it before I put her into drive.


    For regular office and home listening PowerAmp has no equal.
    Thanks for the tip of Sensor Music Player. I play music on shuffle alot, and am always worried about skipping to the next track while driving (don't want to be distracted). Tried this out last night, and worked beautifully! Thanks alot for the recomendation, had never heard of this app before, but loving it!
