There is one thing which annoys me on all media players for Android which I’ve tried: creating and managing a playlist is unnecessary complicated. You need to create a playlist, after that browse though the song files, find one which you want in that playlist, long click on it and select Add to playlist, select the playlist and after that browse for another song and so on. What if you want to create a playlist with 100 songs? I find this really complicated and time consuming. And if you organize your music directory like me, with subdirectories for different genres or different artists, and at some point you want to listen just to some artist, what can you do? Same thing: create a playlist, after that browse though the song files, find one which you want in that playlist, long click on it and select Add to playlist, select the playlist and after that browse for another song……
So I’ve decided to create my own media player for Android, a media player [more]with better playlist management. I’m still using the old PC version of Winamp (2.91) and i really like the simple playlist management. Want to add some media files to the playlist? Just navigate to the location of those files, select them and press a button – all those files will be added to your playlist. You want to add to your playlist all media files in a specific directory? Navigate to that directory and press a button and all the files found in that directory will be added to your playlist. And of course, you can save a playlist, or load previously saved playlists. And that’s what I’ve done with my media player for Android. It’s a simple media player which can play mp3, ogg and wav files; it can read ID3 tags; it has all necessary functions (repeat, shuffle, search, save/load playlists) for a media player and nothing more, just to keep it simple and user-friendly. Some screenshots below:
Simple Media Player is available on Android Market, where you can buy it for ~2$.
A free version – Simple Media Player Free supported by adds, is also available.
