    1. My main audio player for many years has been, and will remain, foobar, but there are some times when I just want a simple “load’n'play” type of player. An application that comes very close is Billy.
    2. Billy is an audio player that allows you to quickly play an entire directory of MP3 files. It can usually load files 2 to 8 times faster than Winamp or Windows Media Player.

      Killy Similar low memory footprint. But Billy can also live in system tray.

    3. Tired of music players that take forever to start up because they're loading ads or trying to download stuff? Of music players that ignore Bluetooth controls, or stop responding after a few minutes? I was too, so I wrote this app!
