Poweramp Full Music Player Goes on Sale

Nov 29, 2015

The best thing about Black Friday weekend? The app sales, of course.

Count Poweramp as one. The exceptionally popular music player and management utility is on sale for a limited time, coming in at $0.99. For reference, it is usually priced at $3.99.

Music moves people; it unites us, it allows us to relax, and sometimes, when done right, it can even motivate us to do great things. Poweramp does great things.

The #1 paid music player in the Google Play Store 4 years running—Poweramp is the most powerful music player available on the Android OS. Features like gapless play, an unmatched equalization system, great crossfade, and support for most popular music file format might all make Poweramp the best $3.99 you have ever spent in your life—2+ million users would agree to that.

This one leaves with the holiday, so hurry!

Theme Thursday – Minimalist

Theme Thursday – Minimalist

Apr 14, 2011

As many of us already know, one of the great things about Android is the large number of ways you can customize your device. Using the right combination of widgets, launchers and home replacements, you can have a radically different user interface for a truly unique experience. One of the most popular home replacements (and my personal favorite) is the ADW Launcher.

Not only does ADW Launcher add some nice customization features, it also comes with support for hundreds of themes to give it a whole new look. There are themes based on ideas, color schemes, movies, games and products. With so much to choose from, we figured it would be a great feature to highlight some of them here on Android Rundown.

And so, without further ado, here is this week’s theme: Minimalist, a theme available for free on the Android Market.

Minimalist contains stark contrasts between the black, white, grays and blue highlights, which is something I like about this theme. It’s very simple without any distractions and comes with a nice wallpaper (which you can change, if you prefer). Also, it comes with a large assortment of custom icons to keep the theme going.

There were icons for almost all of my favorite applications, from Astrid and PowerAMP to Angry Birds Rio, as well as the default applications that come on most phones. The designer also notes that if there are any icons you’d like to see, he’d be more than happy to fill the order if you just contact him.

You might find the theme too simple, but I found it to be elegant and pleasing. I also found that it made my phone feel “snappier.” However, I’m not too crazy about the browser icon. Thankfully, ADW makes that easy to change, as you can set any icon you like.

If you’re looking for a nice, clean theme for ADW Launcher, Minimalist might be the theme you’ve been looking for. If not, join us next week when I highlight another theme!

PowerAmp Music Player For Android

PowerAmp Music Player For Android

Nov 10, 2010

It wasn’t soon after Winamp released its beta media player that we caught news of another diamond in the rough. Originally only available through 3rd party downloads, “PowerAmp” has since found its way to the Android Market. First it was released in trial form but we now have the “Full” paid version available for $4.99. This newest addition to the music player market is one that will completely change the way you view mobile music players. PowerAmp is by far the most feature rich medial player I have had the pleasure of using.

As soon as you see PowerAmp you are visually impressed. The rich, sleek UI is extremely sexy and comes in 3 different color themes. PowerAmp scans and loads up music almost instantaneously. Songs can be played from pre-selected folders or from the standard Android system library. Poweramp will find and download album art which is not only static but becomes interactive upon swiping. Unlike most media players, PowerAmp gives users amazing sound control with their 10 band equalizer and preamp controls. Pretend you’re an audio engineer as you tweak all the multiple settings or simply choose one of the many presets made available.
