- Supports equalizer, bass boost, and reverb on devices with Android 2.3
- and some more, just check the preferences...

Used permissions:
Phone state: Used to pause during a call. Otherwise it would only be muted by the system.
Wake lock: So the playback isn't stopped when you turn off the screen. Also for some optional features like disabling the auto screen off during playback.
Disable keyguard: In case you only want to use the app's lock screen. (And not return to the default one afterwards.)
Write/delete external storage: For some internal files in \.MortPlayer, e.g. cached folder covers from ID3 tags and track order lists.
Internet: Ads (AdMob)
Boot completed: To reschedule the alarm clock after boot.
Tasks: For "StopService" activity, to avoid the system returns to player afterwards

Recent changes:

- Alarm clock works more reliable
- Big notification for Android 4.2
- Context menus are back in track and folder lists

Tech savvy music player. This music player is definitely not the best in terms of UI of ease of use, but it gets the job done. Many functionalities that other music players just don't have, such as reloading directories. Wish the author could update the UI though. I'm glad to give some guidance on that. :)

It is the best music player I've tried so far but recently there have been some problems. Sometimes it reads folders when it's not supposed to, and once in a while it freezes, accompanied by a restart of my phone. After that all the settings are set back to default. I'll try reinstalling and see how it goes after that. Another persistent issue concerns its behaviour by incoming calls: the call interrupts the music all right but after it's ended the music stops and must be restarted manually, which is quite uncomfortable while driving at high speed, for instance. As everything else is fine for me, four stars.
