Our Top 5 Android Music Players [Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia)]

(Mobile 88 Online (Malaysia) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Need to listen to music on the go? Smartphones these days have pretty much replaced traditional media players, but you might be hard pressed to seek out the best music player, and that is exactly why we are here to help you: Poweramp This app's only gotten better, with many features for power users that other music players can't match, and the many tweaks and themes available only make the deal sweeter. You can tweak how your music sounds and it has support for any file you can throw at it. FLAC tends to be the preferred format, but default mobile players can have trouble with it. Poweramp can play them just fine along with any other more obscure formats you may have. The equalizer has 10 bands with many separate tweaks for other levels, though it's probably very overwhelming for the more casual users. Themes, widgets, configurable lockscreens is all available, and it can also fetch album art and lyrics for your songs.


doubleTwist This is another app that has also had far more features than other apps, and it's also one that can painlessly sync your iTunes library with Android. The UI has been revamped to match KitKat's design, offering easy navigation and quick access through your library that also has various settings with it. doubleTwist can also be like an AirPlay device and stream to a receiver which helps if you've invested in other AirPlay devices. The premium version includes a customizable equalizer, auto-fetching album art, and automatic podcast download. A new feature is Magic Radio that creates custom radio stations based on your selections or even word phrases.

Play Music Google's Play Music is mostly meant for music bought on the Play Store and streaming from Google All Access, but it's not bad for offline player. If you want an app that fits Google's design, then Google's app would fit it best. It has the card aesthetic, with fluid swiping and pull-out action bars. The main library sorts well through genres, artists and such, and can hide everything but the music you have on the device. If your music happens to be all over the cloud, Play Music gives you access to them easily. If you aren't looking for cloud support and wanting more features, then look for something else.

n7 Player n7's fairly popular in its own right, with the interface and usability helping it stand out. The library is automatically built by the app, compiling what's on your SD card and internal device. Pop-up tips are given when the sorting is done, and the gestures you can use to navigate the menus can be confusing at first, but you can soon get used to them and enjoy the visuals. There's a lot of support for many file formats, a tag editor, and gapless playback; there is also DLNA/UPNP and Chromecast support for you to play your music on any wireless device.

Fusion Fusion believes in music discovery, rare in non-streaming radio apps. It has a slick interface and customizable options. While browsing your music, there are extra tabs for Charts and Radio; check Charts for the top song everyone is listening to and also gives you sources to listen from. You can't fine tune genres and such however, so might not be very beneficial. Radio is like Shoutcast radio, where you can check out top radio stations or keywords to stations you enjoy and favourite it for later. There's an equalizer and lockscreen widgets, as well as gesture supports for devices with proximity sensors. sharing to social media sites, custom ringtone trimming and visualizer.
