    I've put this thread here to give you guys a variety of music players that you can use. I, like many of you, don't like using the stock music player because it hasn't got the ability to customize it the way we'd like, so we'd like more of a choice. So rather than having to find them all over the place, I will keep everything here in one place.

    If you notice any information in this guide which is incorrect, or any bad links, let me know and I'll fix it as soon as possible. Also, I know that there are a load that aren't on this list, so if there are some which aren't on the list but you think they should be, let me know and I'll look into them and update the list.

    If you've found this guide useful, rather than posting thanks, simply hit the 'Thanks' button.

    All download links will be in the 3RD post.

    Apollo

    Description:
    Ever since it was released, I have been trying to use Google Music to synchronize and manage my music collection, in addition to the third party DoubleTwist player for local music. However, the setup isn’t ideal, and I am still on the lookout for a better way to play and manage music on my Android device. As such, when the Apollo application showed up preinstalled on a recent nightly build of my current daily ROM CyanogenMod, I decided to give the new music player a try and see how well it worked.

    When I first opened the app, it became clear that Apollo is all about simplicity. There are only two main parts of the app: the music navigation screen and now playing screen. The music navigation screen itself has three main parts: a top navigation panel, main content display in the middle, and the now playing bar at the bottom. The top navigation bar contains the different tabs that you swipe left or right to navigate through, including “Recent,” “Artists,” “Albums,” “Songs,” “Playlists,” and “Genres.” Sensibly enough, the content display panel in the middle contains a list of the content in whatever tab you select, with the “Artists” and “Albums” tab sprucing things up a bit with almost Metro-like displays of album artwork. At the bottom of the screen, the now playing tab shows you what song is currently playing with the option to favorite it, as well as the search and menu buttons.

    Moving on to the now playing screen, the simplicity and clean style of Apollo are still evident. The favorite, search, and menu buttons on the top and standard music buttons like play and shuffle on the bottom flank a large album art display. While this might not be the best setup for showing information about the song or detailed settings, it does look very clean and simple, and the basic controls you will need are all there. Also, at least in CyanogenMod Apollo also supports a notification bar widget with music controls as well as a lockscreen widget with controls by default, something most other unofficial music players don’t.

    However, it seems that Apollo may have carried their policy of simplicity in the interface a bit too far, as Apollo has a fairly basic list of extra features. In addition to the most basic music playing duties, Apollo will also scrobble and favorite tracks for Last.fm, plug into the stock CyanogenMod EQ/DSP Manager app and Android share menu, and work with a few themes. This means that the settings menu currently only houses an options to change themes, and users running Apollo without DSP Manager installed might be out of luck in terms of EQ.

    I use Apollo Music Player. First came across this when I was running a custom rom and always used it when going back to stock.

    How about you? Which is your favourite?

    PowerAmp mate, bought it a few phones ago after the 14day trial.
    i love how it handles my way of organising music (in folders i make) and the EQ is amazing with pre-amp gain to add some volume when you need it.
    im also addicted to tapping its Facebook Share widget to tell the world what im listening to lol (theres also a twitter share widget)

    p.s, to anyone trying to find a cracked (free) version of the poweramp unlock key... dont waste your time lol i tried and tried
    Player Pro on the other hand.....

    Good review of most popular players!
    I use Astro Player for audiobooks and podcasts. It's the best for it.
    But for music there is also CityGlo which is nice in UI. As for the EQ. I don't use it, because almost all my music is different in genres, so it is useless to use EQ.

    Wow, wasn't aware there was this many!
    Well done, good descriptions. I found neutron! Somehow with all these choices I found it. Was a power amp user. Now I'm in heaven, close to vinyl I ever heard and no tweaking. Just as is, well went 64 bit and cross fade for headphones I guess a few little things but didn't need to play with equalizer to get to heaven.
    I guess I'm loving it so much actually, hope you all get a chance to try it. I'm using galaxy s3

    Nice write up!

    I'm using DoubleTwist to sync between my MacBook Pro, Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 2013 but for playing back, I use Poweramp on my Nexus 4 and USB Audio Player Pro with my USB DAC Fiio E07K on my Nexus 7 2013.

    How are you guys syncing their music?

    excelente, coincido en que gonemad music player tiene ciertas ventajas que lo ubican en el primero, solo espero que la compañía siga mejorando esta aplicación, a mi punto de vista le falta que nos muestre los lyrics integrados en el tag id3 de los archivos sin necesidad de recurrir a plugings de teerceros, pero por lo demás muy bien

    For those of us with no ability in other languages:
    excellent, I agree that gonemad music player has certain advantages that place it at first, just hope that the company will continue to improve this app, to my point of view you need to show us embedded lyrics in the tag id3 files without resorting to plugings of teerceros, but otherwise fine <br />

    Whats the best equalizer app to stream music for my JBL Link 20 bluetooth speaker? They all seem the same & say to use headphones for best result. I use the speaker only. I havent found anything different. Same 10 equalizer presets ( rock, classical etc) & bass & volume boosters all the same. Ive not purchased the pro versions of these apps, does that make the sound any bettet? I have an LG k30. If I bought a bettet phone would I get better sound? Thx. 💋❤😊🎅🎄😱
