The best wav player / audio player for VoIP (Voice over IP) voice-mail files sent to you as email attachments from Magic Jack, Vonage, Asterisk and more.

Plays many types of audio file formats that Android does not support. These can be email attachments or files downloaded to your SD card, like wav voice-mail, music, midi, and many other file formats. Note: To play files from the SD card, install a file manager application (ES File Explorer is an excellent choice)


WavPlayer is designed to be a lightweight application. Once another task is started or the application loses focus, WavPlayer will quit and free all system resources.

DROID USERS: To fix the 1-second skip/loop bug in wav files, enable the 'Favor custom decoder' option in the settings.

** Please email me if you need to report a bug or have an issue. **

Haptic feedback (vibration), REW/FF buttons, and amplify button can be disabled from the settings screen.

    Works perfectly! I spent the last week of my life trying to get your competitors Picus to respond to inquiries when their products failed to work for twice the cost. Buy this one and save yourself a buck and lots of aggravation.
