Some good free music apps
Everywhere you go, it seems like everyone is talking about how to stream this, how to stream that, how to stream from your PC to your phone, etc. While streaming can be convenient, it can eat up your mobile data.
And as mobile providers become more stingy with data plans and data caps, maybe it’s time we think about going back to local music files.
But to do this, you’re going to need a good music player app ¬ and we’ve done the research for you. Here are the best free Android music apps currently available.
AIMP-At first glance, AIMP looks a bit overly sim plistic. Flat interface designs are currently in, but AIMP’s approach feels a bit empty.Maybe that’s the point. This app gets straight to the point: it plays your music and doesn’t muck around with distractions. It handles nearly all audio file types ¬ including lossy and lossless formats ¬ and it comes with a 10-band equaliser, which is rare to see in free music players. It can also mix multi-channel files to stereo andor mono. Overall, if you can get past the interface, it’s a solid choice that won’t let you down.
BLACKPLAYER-BlackPlayer is the best free music player I’ve ever used. It’s clean, it’s modern, it’s lovely on the eyes, it’s easy to navigate, and it’s packed with features: 5-band equaliser, gapless playback, scrobbling, sleep timer, and no ads! A premium version does exist, which has extra themes, fonts, more settings to tweak, more ways to customise your experience, a visualiser, better sorting, and a first taste of all future features. For just $2, it’s well worth it.
PHONOGRAPH-Phonograph is often considered to be the best-looking music player app, mainly be cause of the many built-in theme colour sets and the fact that the interface colours dynamically change to match the content on the screen. It’s pretty standard as far as features go, so don’t expect a lot of bells and whistles, but if you just want a simple listening experience that never gets in your way, Phonograph may be the app for you.
PULSAR-If you’re using an older device with out dated hardware, a lot of modern apps may frustrate you with lag. Well, Pulsar strikes the perfect balance between a gorgeous appearance and lightweight performance. It comes at a price ¬ a lack of big advanced features ¬ but that doesn’t mean Pulsar is barebones.You still get smart playlists, fast search, gapless playback, and a built-in tag editor that works quite well.
JETAUDIO-JetAudio also comes in a premium version, but you get so much in the free version that most users won’t even need it. The only downside is that the free version is supported by ads, but they aren’t intrusive. Here’s what you get: a 10-band equalizer with 32 presets, lossy and lossless support, effects like reverb and xbass, playback speed control, automatic gain control, and more.
STELLIO PLAYER-Three things in particular stick out with Stel lio: it has a 12-band equalizer, it supports high-resolution audio, and it has a plugin system (which is bare right now but shows promise). Other than that, it has gapless playback, supports lossy and lossless formats, crossfading, configurable widgets, a sleep timer, and is supported by ads.
ROCKET PLAYER- Rocket Player has been around for a few years now, and it has come a long way since its inception. A lot of the bugs have been fixed, it performs smoother now, and the feature set has expanded a lot. For free, you get a 5-band equalizer with several presets, over 30 themes, a built-in tag editor, Chromecast support, a sleep timer, a nifty playlist manager, and even support for podcasts.
DOUBLETWIST-DoubleTwist has been around for a while and now that I’m revisiting it after all this time, it feels a bit outdated. As a music player, it gets the job done ¬ at least there aren’t any ads in the free version ¬ and the interface is nice too, but there’s nothing special about it anymore. It’s still good. It’s just not great anymore.
SHUTTLE-Intuitive and lightweight. That’s what sepa rates Shuttle from most other music players. It feels smooth and it runs well on older devices, and while there isn’t anything distinctive about the interface, it’s easy enough to use. Free features include a 6-band equalizer with bass boost, gapless playback, several theme options, a sleep timer, and a few customizable widgets.
