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.

GoneMAD.

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.
>>
>>52303202
I often fall back onto Offline Misic Player or OMP for short, you should really tweye it someime

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.

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

Poweramp.

>Cheap as dirt usually

>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).

Still have doubletwist for airsync tho

Google music honestly, lets me upload music on the server for free which lets me save phone space.

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.

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

>>52314594
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
>>
Shuttle(+) for local playback
Spotify for streaming
Google Play Music for streaming your own files you've uploaded.
>>
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

eh?

Custom ROM feature?

If so, it works fine for me on Cataclysm ROM + Shuttle+
>>
Get material design for power amp it looks way better

>>52314653
Hide the action bar and the status bar and those buttons at the bottom

Looks like ass right now

no I'm talking without custom rom.
Need this phone for development so I won't put a custom rom on it.

The UI in general is garbage. And a fucking share button? What's next, search for covers on instagram?

Doesn't that make the battery last even less?

It's pretty bad for me as is, couldn't imagine using a separate service that kept the phone awake.
>>
>>52314788
it doesn't keep the phone awake and only overrides the buttons once the phone's screen is off and it's in standby

battery lasts me 2-3 days on average

>>

>>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

Stock or n7

>>52314865
The more AIMP screenshots I look at, the more it looks like the devs were like

>>52314865
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..
>>
>>52314921
Well for one, the bar at the bottom is thick as fuck

And the checkmark looks nothing like the "standard" one on Android
>>
>>52314944
>And the checkmark looks nothing like the "standard" one on Android
>everything needs to be material because google said so
>>
>>52314958
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
>>
>>52304036
I use Play Music for... well, music. I use Podcast Addict for podcasts, which is really what I listen to most of the time. Rarely actually listen to any music.

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.

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?
>>
>>52315065
>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.
>>
>>52315121
>it isn't material in terms of functionality
In what way?
Genuinely curious

>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)
>>
>>52315163
No side panel and hamburger menu, no action button.. these things have no place in a browser.
>>
>>52315269
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
>>
>>52315312
>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)
