Top Android App: PowerAMP Music Player

Top Android App: PowerAMP Music Player

PowerAMP is an incredibly sleek & powerful music player for Android.

  • Version: 1.0-build-204
  • Size: 2.50MB
  • Category: Multimedia
  • Price: Free (trial)



PowerAMP Music Player supports mp3, mp4, m4a, flac, ogg, wav, tta, wma, ape, and wv file types. When you first download the app, you can choose which SD card folders you’d like to import into PowerAMP. The default Android media folder is automatically checked, but if you have other song files stored make sure to check the appropriate folder.

First off, you’re sure to be blown away by the incredibly sleek and sexy user-interface. The speed and responsiveness of the app is very impressive as well.¬†On the main media player page, you’ll see the standard album artwork, control buttons (play, fwd, rwd), as well as options to shuffle or repeat songs.

The unique feature with this music player app is the 10 band graphic equalizer. You can play around with the settings yourself or use the preset settings to enhance formats like dance, rock, and techno. There are even dedicated dials for bass, treble, and volume. If you make adjustments that you don’t like, just hit the reset button to start over fresh.

Another welcomed feature is the ability to add the PowerAMP widget, not only to the homescreen, but to the lockscreen as well! Now you can have full control of your music without having to unlock your phone.

Note: as of this review date, only the trial version is available for download. The full, paid version is scheduled to be released in the near future.

Pros:

  • Supports a wide range of audio formats, e.g. mp3, mp4, m4a
  • Optimized 10 band graphic equalizer with optional preset formats
  • SD card folders and system library support
  • Tag editor, homescreen widgets, and lock screen access!



Areas for improvement:

  • Navigation could be improved/more intuitive



Conclusion: Hands down the best Android music player app available!

  1. This one could be the king, omg what an amazing music player, perfect equalization, the library is really fast, the transition effect of the song pictures is really cool, and fast!, I just downloaded it and I love it already.

  2. i just downloaded this and its pretty awesome! the only thing is i cant seem to find the widget for the home screen. everything else is 5 out of 5 stars.

    • @travis Are you looking for the widget for the homescreen or the lockscreen? For the lockscreen widget you have to enable it in the PowerAMP’s settings.

  3. FINALLY!! A fully-loaded, very functional music app! It seemed like I’d never find one that I really liked but now it’s here! I didn’t realize it supported so many file types – flac and wma support is awesome! I will agree that the library navigation could be a little more intuitive or streamlined. 9.5/10 stars overall

  4. undoubtdly the best musiv app evrrrrrrrrrrrr

  5. I cant seem to find it..

    • @gdi I am still able to find it by searching “PowerAMP” in the Android Market. The developer’s name is Max MP if that helps. Does scanning the barcode not work?

  6. Very nice !! The Equalizer is indeed amazing and the graphics are sleek.
    One thing I would like to see though is a radio or “play from url”. As far as I can tell it doesn’t recognise pls or m3u files.
