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

    Almost half of the screen stays empty. No options for the appearance.

    Maybe I don't know how to use it yet because it only has folders and no song playlist automatically

    This is a no-frills music player. "Music Library" not included. Sorry, not what I was looking for. :)

    Not many Android programs match the robustness of their desktop siblings. Deadbeef is one of the few.
