Good player, still a bit buggy Devs are responsive though. They're clearly still working hard on it! Got a Note 3: Equaliser on/off tickbox is ignored, also would like equaliser to be vertical (bass on left, treble on right), not horizontal (sounds silly, but given how poor the Android equaliser module is, it would help usability!)

Galaxy S4 Great app Noticed on the last couple of playlists that I put on my phone that when I play them in the truck via bluetooth the music stutters....enough to be quite annoying. Its not the truck because it did the same on a bluetooth speaker.

Pls fix yes playback/next works on portrait view. Have you tried it out on landscape view? And also try using the time line to play forward and see....do all this in landscape. Eg tablet view.

Subpar for MediaMonkey I liked this program when it first rolled out. But it seems to get worse with every update. I find I can no longer control it from the lock screen. Shuffling through tracks is not very random, and now it never seems to fully shut down when you exit it. Too many bugs for prime time. I keep waiting to see if the quality will meet anything close to expectations.

My main music player But for a few bugs here and there and lack of a crossfade I'd give it 5 stars. The only music app that allows ME to specify rules on what songs to sync and a great music player. Did I mention it needs a crossfade?
