I need an app for my android mobile that I could program to start and stop, about 4 hours playing and with loop play. I am looking for something like Amarok or Rhythmbox, but for Android 4.1 Any idea? It is something like an alarm but for a long time, if it is free is good but if not it is also good.



Install the ColumnsUI component otherwise the UI is awful

ColumnsUI is available here:

I only found out about this more or less by chance - frustration at the awful UI so browsing the extra components list - but really this should be the default UI.


Very good

It's a very good player....... it's almost what i was looking for.... i really like it, it's so customizable, i just want a notification system to next update xD


great software

If you want to make sure your flac's are real this program works. You can open the spectrogram full screen. You can change the colors. And everything. I just realized everything I'm typing is useless and it's late. actually early. like 4 AM. course I didn't wake up until 4PM.

I'm going to try to sleep.

foobar is cool.

This disposable account on a site I've never visited before will self destruct when you finish reading this.

Why all the hype?

about foobar2000 and Aqualung · ·

I seriously don't get it. It's closed source and it runs on Windows only.
Sure, it does a good job playing music and is heavily customizable but that doesn't make your music files sound any better...

I'd rather use something more simplistic like Aqualung.

its got a nice spectrogram, spectrum, and VU layout. Fully customizable. It supports encoding and it's very very hassle free. It has an 18 band equalizer. It sounds great. Runs on very little. Foobar2000 is awesome. hey curt if you can use wine I'd run in wine. Why do you have linux? never mind.

Foobar2000 is awesome for an audio file on a small budget.

oh, one more thing. facepalm that list is pathetic

audiophile lol


Searched in vain to find a worthy replacement

about foobar2000 · ·

I've been using Foobar2000 for a few years now, but unfortunately the lack of a Linux version led me to search for an alternative player that would work in Window & Linux. I can't find anything to match it. There are so many features of Foobar that I miss in other players: stable sorting, custom fields (codec, BPM, anything), replay gain, file operations, and so on. Admittedly Foobar isn't perfect out-of-the-box, but for anyone prepared to invest a bit of time setting up their ideal music player environment, Foobar2000 beats them all. (Plus, it isn't trying to be an iTunes clone!)


Good player, but...

Far and away the best audio player/music library organizer out there. I have yet to find an audio format that was not supported natively or by a simple "installation" (just drag' n' drop into the 'components' folder) of one of the many optional components (Like Ipod management and such) that the active and friendly community created.
And just in case you did not want to deal with the "steep learning curve," there are a number of quick setup options to choose from. Also the "layout editing mode" where you can adjust the User Interface in real-time is fantastic.
Although it is, sadly, not open-source, it does have a VERY expansive SDK (Software Development Kit).

Fast, light-weight, and downright elegant, I honestly can't sing it's praises enough.

Insanely customizable and with no doubt the best music player out there. To bad there's no linux version.

Extremely lightweight, feature-rich and runs great even on ancient hardware. Only problem I have with it is the lack of source code which for ethical and security reasons puts me off.
