What app do you Android users use for offline music playback on your smartphones?
I've tried Poweramp, Rocket Player, and doubleTwist and their user interfaces are all fucking awful.
I'm using pic related if it matters.
shuttle music player is pritty good free eq easy to find my music shits all sorted nice. power amp bkew out the 6x9 xplods in the back of my xterra so I can't recomend
my phone is 100% aosp with no Google services and in getting 11 hours of sot with a shitty 30 phone
I used to use PowerAmp, but it doesn't support the Opus format until recently, so it can go take a hike. Looks like it's stuck in the holo as well. At least GoneMAD supports pretty much all formats out there, has a really good amount of settings, great customisability, material design with customisable colors, menus and several layouts to choose from, has a good equalizer and is updated frequently.
Stellio seemed like a good newcomer as well, however I didn't like the way you interact with the UI on that one, so I'm sticking with GoneMAD.
Neutron Music Player.
It's objectively better because it has Opus support and is the only player with a parametric EQ.
However the UI is really ugly and by what you said i can assume that you're looking for design over function, so feel free to skip this one.
If you like the comfy interface, you should try BlackPlayer, I'm using it since 2 month and I kinda like it.
But the thing is, this is a non-free software, so you first need to get blackmart.
Forgot the pic related.
Poweramp's alpha has promising features but the album art doesn't work, I had to revert to the live build on Cuck Store.
Honestly, I just pay for Spotify and download playlists for offline use.... why bother with anything illegal or difficult? I work, so I can afford to pay a measly 10 bucks a month for unlimited music.
Try Poweramp with "Material" skin
Otherwise i heard "Vanilla Music" is quite good
There should be a lot of them
>Cheap as dirt usually
>Isn't shit at recognizing metadata like all the other players I've tried
>Has an actual decent EQ
"B-but it looks like shit!!!"
1. Get a different skin. There's tons.
2. Why does that even fucking matter? You're playing music, not watching videos. As long as its easy to use and navigate with, that should be more than enough.
"B-but I don't want to play for a media player!!!"
Good fucking luck finding a player with a decent amount of essential features that isn't trialware or bloated with ads. Seriously, most players are only a dollar, so save that dollar you were going to spend on a McDouble and get a media player instead.
I've heard good things about Apollo though, so if you're really adamant about not using Poweramp for some reason, give that a look if you can find it (it's not on the Play Store to my knowledge).
Black player is the best, period.
Comfy interface and fast as shit, and the equalizer is good.
PowerAmp wins. With MusicBee for syncing favourite songs automatically.
The ability to shuffle all songs but still dive into the album of any song and pick a different track is something other players lack.
AIMP Master Race. Both on PC and phone.
>no properly tinted status bar with material design
I don't see why other music players fail to grasp that a touch interface is much worse than a keyboard based interface.
Putting a song to the back of a queue is usually done by pressing a key.
On touch you only have a short press and a long press.
Poweramp is the only one (i found) which can change the default action, so single press pushes the song to the queue.
Sorry m8, the master race title belongs to Shuttle
Don't know about any IAPs, I have the Pro version :^)
As for the interface, it's the best looking, best laid out player out there, so you can go play hide and go fuck yourself if you don't agree
I tried a lot but ultimately went back to the default google play music app
shuttle+ didn't support loudness normalization saved into mp3 files
poweramp and others all didn't support the ability to change the tracks using volume buttons when the screen is off
The google play music app is still total shit but I just haven't found something better
>talks shit about interfaces
>posts AIMP which has a horrible half MD/half holo interface that looks like ass on either 4.4 or 5.0+
>poweramp and others all didn't support the ability to change the tracks using volume buttons when the screen is off
Custom ROM feature?
If so, it works fine for me on Cataclysm ROM + Shuttle+
Get material design for power amp it looks way better
The UI in general is garbage. And a fucking share button? What's next, search for covers on instagram?
>everything needs to be material
Though AIMP is neither material nor holo, it's got its own style, faggot.
The share button is nice actually, let's you share the file you're currently listening to
>it's got its own style
as in it looks like ass on a platform that has holo and MD designed apps
>>everything needs to be material because google said so
I'm not saying that
What I'm saying is that if most apps have a similar design language (or two in this case) an app that doesn't follow either of those will look like shit
and it does
>look guise, fuck google's premade check mark library, let's make our own so it can look worse
The more AIMP screenshots I look at, the more it looks like the devs were like
>nooooo we can do it ourselves
What's wrong with how it looks? It's an x in a box? Not too many ways you can draw it. Next version will support skinning anyway..
Again, refer to >>52314751
It looks like ass because it's completely different from everything else and it stands out like a sore thumb
Also just looked up the desktop program, Jesus Christ, the Android app looks amazing compared to that
Default skin on v4 for desktop respects Metro language. There are skins if you don't like it.
And no, I don't think phone apps should not have their own design just because google said so.
>Default skin on v4 for desktop respects Metro language. There are skins if you don't like it.
Hm yes, v4 looks nice, I've only seen 3.6 I think
So in your opinion every single app should have it's own design and it's own controls in it's own places instead of just using standardized stuff which is already ready and done?
>So in your opinion every single app should have it's own design and it's own controls in it's own places instead of just using standardized stuff which is already ready and done?
If they fit the said app, then yes. Look at Chrome on Android, it isn't material in terms of functionality, only just by looks. It would not fit to a browser.
>it isn't material in terms of functionality
In what way?
>It would not fit to a browser
But we can see that MD can and does fit music players
(also I wish Google released the music player example app that they're using in their documentation, shit looks cash)
But an app doesn't NEED to have those to be MD
IIRC the hamburger menu allows you to switch between different "contexts" within an app
Ex. Apps & Games, Music, Movies, etc in the Play store
Chrome doesn't really have that
But I do agree with the FAB, it needs an FAB in the tab screen
>it needs an FAB in the tab screen
Actually I just remembered that Google in a way deprecated the tab screen with Lollipop when they shoved the tabs into the recent apps screen (which is idiotic IMO)
>no proper lockscreen player
>album art loads wrong
>bio about the bands is nice, but not gonna excuse the fuckass UI
>tfw i fell for the black meme
Wtf, /g/. Stick to Gonemad, senpai.
