Vanilla Music Player – A simple music player for Android

Vanilla Music Player is a nice and simple music player app for your Android smartphones. It comes with different home screen widgets, distinguishes itself with its very simple to use interface. Nontheless it features everything you expect from a good music Player. It supports last.fm scrobbling and some nice settings regarding how the player behaves when there are notifications or if it should just play music when there is an external output like a (Bluetooth) headset available. No more embarassing moments caused by accidentally started music! Also after finishing a playlist/album it chooses random songs in your collection so goodbye to silence after a playlist/album is done. Especially for people who like simplicity and apps that just work Vanilla Music Player should be interesting.

Songbird Beta – An advanced music player for Android

A few days ago the first beta of Songbird for Android was released. Songbird is a sophisticated multiplatform music player, but there hasn’t been a version for mobile devices until now. The Songbird developers just released the first version which got some nice features like facebook support, grabbing flickr images for the artist currently playing and a few widgets on top but no Last.fm support yet.

The overall usability when searching and browsing through your phone’s library is really nice and I like it a lot. Especially the swiping between the library and current song details. I don’t want to exaggerate but to be honest I think it’s the best player I used so far. On the downside it doesn’t yet feel as snappy and smooth as, for example, cubed³ or vanilla player. The songbird developers will eventually work this out seeing this is still a early beta version. We will keep you posted about this.

³ (Cubed) – Music player for Android in 3D

³ aka Cubed is a music player for your Android phone. It comes with some advanced features like automatic cover download, last.fm scrobbling and has a very sophisticated optical presentation giving you some options on how to browse your music. All the effects run very smooth without lagging. There are also some widgets with different sizes to fit your needs on the homescreen.

Although Cubed will almost certainly generate some AHA-effect because of its fancy and experimental optical presentation its usability and stability remains good. You can sort your music by artist or album and can create and save playlists. It offers everything you would expect from a good music player and also has some little extras.
