Music Player. That explains it all. This app plays your music like any other music player like Songbird, MixZing, or Zimly. If you are not looking for fanciful customization for music player, then this is the one for you.
Once it is first launched, it scans your media, and shows a menu of the media arranged in the categories, artists, albums, songs and playlists. It has the music player buttons at the bottom of the screen, which allows easy navigation to play/pause your tracks, navigate to previous or the next track. The shuffling and the repeat options and also the Now Playing option will show when you click your menu button.
The settings that Music Player provides are also quite unique, as there’s an option provided to decide whether you want the music to play through an external sources like headsets or Bluetooth. Perhaps this is to prevent any accidents of blasting your music at the wrong places at the wrong time. Quite a thoughtful feature they provide in my perspective. One of the other unique features is what happens when you try to access the music player through your notifications when the music is being played. If the option is checked, instead of going into the main app straightaway, it will launch a mini popup player to allow the navigation of music. This makes it easier and time saving which is also one the more interesting features.
Let’s say you dozed off when listening to Music Player. This app actually helps to save the battery drainage, by stopping the playback after a certain period of inactivity. Acts some sort like a sleep timer, if you look at it that way.
Oh yes, as for the widget, Music Player provides a 4*1 widget, with the album art, the title, and the three main buttons. It’s rather limited as only one size is provided, but I think it should be satisfactory as all the basic elements are more or less covered in the standard widget.
In conclusion, Music Player is for people who are looking for playlist-based playing and not eyeing for any fanciful eye-poppers, and also for people who wants to get their media organized well. Cheers =D
