    "RealPlayer mobile, media player on-the-go"

    After reaching great success for years on its desktop version, RealNetworks, Inc. launches its Android version with same expectations. Bear in mind though that this is a beta version and that they're working on improving any bug.

    RealPlayer is a multimedia player: you can play music, videos and photos from the same app. The most notable feature is its good-looking and easy of use layout. It's divided in three large tabs: music (with 4 sub-tabs: artists, albums, genres, songs), playlist (supports all media files) and photos. It's well-organized and allows you fast access to your data.

    What's more, you can manage your media files by sorting them or by organizing them with the playlist editor. It contains different size screen widgets that will let you manage your playlist from the desktop.

    It isn't the most complete media player regarding customization (brightness, sound, etc). However, it has the basic features set in a good-looking and simple layout, for all audiences.

    We're going to follow very closely its development to the stable version. But anyway, it's a simple and reliable choice so far if you're looking for a simple and good-looking media player.
