Great UI, lacks great UX A really good interface and overall use of material design guidelines in the app. But the UX is lacking. For example, we still can't see the currently playing list. Also, the Album Art doesn't get shown in the lockscreen widget. If there's an easy fix for that, please do it before the next version.


Excellent for Yureka I have been searching long for a music play where I can access songs directly from folder and here it is with nice sharp features.

Daina Marie

Trying it out! So far all the music players quit on me on Chromecast & i wake up to silence & photos. Hoping it will work right! If it does....................... 5 ?????!

Pranay Jaiswal

Best alternative for Google play for offline music playback Google play music a battery sucking headhog , but this has similar ui nd performs quite well

Antonio J. Perez Bueno

Good! Sometimes the widget doesn't show the album cover although the app does. If you select a folder to play and you want to hear a specific song the app don't continue playing the others songs in the folder. The UI is awesome, thanks dev, you are in the right direction.

Andrew Pham

Editing Information I can't figure out how to edit the ID3 tags/song information (ie. Title, Artist, Album, Album Cover, etc.); I'm not sure if the feature is missing from the app or I'm just incapable of finding it. Otherwise, the design is great and functionality is solid. My new music player.

mohit patel

I love this Thanks anirudh chandre nice mp3 player it works nice in my yureka..

Kritika Taya

A few modification here and there.. And better layout .. Then maybe it would work for me.. But still good..!

Thejas HP

Please update it hangs a lot

James Youngblood

absolutely love it!!! Once again... Love the updates. Big fan of this app, been following g it for some time. Reddit monzzter221 I have absolutely no problem beta testing, stability testing or giving ideas. Dev contact me if you like.

William Irby

It's ok Love the ui, but could you improve the song buffer bar? You can't really buffer the song with a tiny bar. Thanks!

David Harmon

Chromecast?? I like the simple player but cant for the life of me find how or where to cast to my chromecast. I have the checkbox checked but normal casting apps have a cast now button. Where and how please?!?

Aashrey Sharma

Stop copying, start improving! I would appreciate it very much if the dev could stop copying open source projects and making them worse. First it was Jair Player and now it's Orephus Player. This app doesn't even have all the features Orephus and yet manages to have more bugs than Orephus. Not to mention a bad Now Playing interface and very tacky controls. The Queue feature is a joke as there is no queue created. Songs are picked at random and played. This is extremely poor work.

Nathan Webley

Loving the design but needs a few more options This is a great music player it just needs a few tweaks and it'll be perfect! If you could include a crossfader, and equalizer adjustments I'd be happy

Ashutosh Tiwari

Great Work !!!! Its quite nice but you could work more on themes and an inbuilt equalizer. Another thing is that it doesn't seem to download the missing artwork

Tejas Shivalkar

Nice app buddy. But one problem which came in your app was swapping of duration in a song.

Ash B

Good work looks nice, does as advertised. Needs a way to scroll down menus quickly though

Lord Xaion

Makes you wish you dint buy poweramp Real good! The floating button is a little flimsy and UI needs to be cleaner. Only complaints i see.

Sid Menon

Better than google play music The theme, downloadable artist and album art, visualization. All of this makes this my favorite music player! Keep up the good work!

Steve Chilcott

Nice app How about an option to hide the player control bar that appears on the now playing screen. The round button does it all anyway.. [Edit] Nearly there..not sure sure we need the progress bar either as it is duplicated below.

haja mohideen

EXCELLENT. Very nice player with effective equalizer.

Jennifer Luzi

Super solid! Probably my favourite material music player! Only criticism I can make is that there's a noticeable delay when transitioning between playlists/albums.

Sourav Das

Need a lot of development UI is laggy compared with Shuttle or other playr. And poor graphics quality

Gary Thyne

Bad Just like any other common simple music player, nothing that draws your attention

GurJeeT SinGh

I like it but Love this app but i am not able to find visualizations anywhere!!!!

Nelson Silva

giving 5stars cuz i read the update notes and you made an implementation to improve your app and in need of costumers... and imo thats a good thing

Raphael Sotelo

This is a really solid music player

alex buettner

Ok It cooled

Brandon Yip

Really delayed For some reason whenever I press a command, such as choosing a song or pausing the music, it is really delayed and takes about 4 seconds before it actually does whatever I want it to do. Any thoughts? EDIT:Latest update fixed the problem thanks!

Ridwan Fuad

Looks great The UI is great. Sound is stuttering at times. I installed it on Xiaomi Redmi 1S, Cyanogenmod ROM.

Nicky T.

Really delayed The delay is insane. Please fix!

Harshit Raghuvanshi

Material UI The material UI looks awesome on top of lollipop

Wall Breaker

In a world of ugly Music apps This is one of the best looking. I do t like the "fling" feature I prefer the Google play music just slide it up or down better.

Wida Eagle

GREAT finally found what i'm looking for,,thank u !

Alageshan Madhavaraju

Some functions didn't work

Victor de Souza

Better design than most, but lacks more advanced settings and album artist view.

Nero 3S

Looks fantastic but the ux could be better and add tag editing and it would give shuttle a run for its money

Gia Phong

Good app However, the floating icon is distinguish one but useless. Just be a simple pause/play button (or a option for enable this function). And tap on the current playing song to display it.

Sanjay Kasi

Great work, one important feature needed!! Just the player I needed - fast, simple & elegant. UI feels smooth and updates new songs quickly. Please increase the size of song timeline bar. One important feature request - automatic album art download!!!


Looks great material music app Player is just awesome Add these features: 1.ignore album art and no lockscreen album art 2.swipe up now playing bar(currently with flink option) and swipes for next and prev song on now playing 3.custom navigation tabs choosing 4.Etc.......

Still searching for The One Beautiful UI, but not fond of the widget. It doesn't display any of my album art. I don't look at the actual app interface nearly as much as I do the widget, so it's unfortunately a deal breaker for me. My quest for the perfect music widget continues :-/

Mohd Cochin

I'm an XDA-OT (fb) member Saw ur post today and downloaded the app.. It's awesome bro.. Good luck for ur future.. Found one bug.. When i click next song it just starts the same song all over again! Fix it bro.

punit manocha

Worst thing Can't play next music in songs list only repeat one song.

Aaron Gerszewski

I love the casting support, which is what I was looking for, but a few things don't seem to work. Doesn't download any artwork. Had to use a separate app to get album art. Still don't have artist photos though and I don't know how to fix that.

Eshita Shukla

Amazing! Is awesome! Proud of u!
