My App Addiction: Poweramp Music Player

Mar 15, 2018

I’m really into streaming content now, especially music; with the right utility (and there are several great choices), you can really cover any need for music you have.

Still, there is a place for standalone, dedicated music players, especially for folks like me. You see, there are some old trusty songs I have, and there are times I prefer dealing with offline and onboard tracks.

I don’t think I am too picky when it comes to choice of app, but there are few things I just to have. Some are a bit vain, yes, but my needs are my needs. When it’s all said and done, after a lot of trial time, I settled on Poweramp Music Player. I really can’t do without it at this point.

Why? We’ve been talking about this app since 2010!

First, as the developer is eager to point out, Poweramp wants to do one thing well: play your music. I like the fact there isn’t too much to wade through… just start the app via the widget and go. Another HUGE feature for me is the ability to search out album art from within the app, as it helps me add a visually authentic touch to my catalog.

Further to that, it also has a full-fledged tag editor, which is another biggie for OCD music heads. And when it comes to handling music files, Poweramp gets serious: mp3, mp4, ogg, wma, flac, wav and more. Yes, I still have ogg files. It does gapless play, has a pretty fast scanning process, and helps out with lyrics.

Additionally, you also get a powerful equalizer. This allows users to really tweak the output intimately, such that if you want to underscore a little bit of base in that Dre track, you are good.

Finally, I love that I can make the app mine by customizing it to suit. There are a few built-in skins (plus more available to download), and there are several little touches one can mess around with, from how songs are named to the info attached to each file.

Bonus: Poweramp is one of those premium apps that has a free version that allows you to try it out for half a month.

Well done.

Go ahead. Try it out. You’re welcome for the tip…
