5 Music Players for Android
1. Google Play Music
Google Play Music is a music app that comes pre-installed with several Android devices. Many people think it's only for streaming, but it does not only perform this function. It has a clean UI that one can move quickly around. Up to 50000 of your own tracks can be uploaded to the cloud at no cost with the app able to download or stream them. It can also play the music that are saved to the phone's storage.
2. Shuttle Music Player
Shuttle doesn't have all those heavy-duty settings and customisation, instead it's feel and looks are simple and light. The app comes with a sleep timer, gapless playback, a choice of a few different themes, built-in equalizer, etc. It comes free, but you can unlock features that are exclusive to paid customers with $0.99.
This app is loaded with many features that will add value to your music experience. There are tons of audio enhancement that can be used to tweak and improve the sound. You add them as plugins. There's an equalizer on board (complete with 32 presets), simple effects like bass boost, a tag editor, widgets, and even MIDI playback.
4. Neutron Music Player
Neutron Music Player is based on the 32/64 bit audio rendering engine, and this enables the app to play any music file. Neutron says it runs this feature independently without any support from Android. This makes it possible for the app to read and play standard mp3 files and other kinds of music files like FLAC. The inbuilt equalizer is handy to adjust audio parameters. It is loaded with presets you can use if you don't want to use the knobs and sliders.
This music player app named Musicolet is light in weight, ad-free and is loaded with enough features for better music experience. It has controls to control music play. One cool thing is that this feature can also be done with your earphone buttons; a single click activates pause/play, double-clicking it plays the next track and triple-clicking it brings you back to the previous song. Pressing the button four or more repeated times causes the player to fast forward the music.
