KNOWN ISSUES: HTC android 2.1 has a bug in foreground service code, which leads to unfixable stuttering / skipping in music playback.


phone state & identity permission is used to detect when a user accepts incoming call, to stop playback

sdcard access permission is used to store playlists and configuration files

internet access is for radio streaming, ads and sending crash reports

    The description says it supports NSF format, but I cannot get a single one to load. Plus it requires to install a plugins pack of some sort, which I did without success. More over, I simply cannot understand why this has to be installed separately, and not packaged with the app.

    The playback is great, and it is flawlessly gapless, as described. But there is literally no semblance of music organization in this app. You have to manually add any and all songs to the app that you want to play, and YOU have to organize them into playlists...this app doesn't even allow you to organize by album or artist--you'd have to make a playlist for that. A colossal failure as far as usabi

    But this app more than deserves it. I used to use Andless player (not available on Google play) for my FLAC files and I thought it was the only player that let you simply navigate to anywhere to find your files. Well it had some bugs.

    somewhat silly UI, but i prefer a player that works better than it looks, rather than the reverse.
