PowerAMP - the BEST audio player for Android!

First of all it supports tons of formats: MP3, OGG, FLAC, APE, WMA, WAV, WV and some more. That automatically makes it better then everything else, because all other players use Android's own sound sub-system which does not support lossless audio in any way. There are some players with lossless support, but they all are buggy, unstable and eat battery like Godzilla eats people.
Next major feature if equalizer and tone control with all bells and whistles. Yet again Android does not have support for EQ and every player lives with that. EQ is good and does not kill your device's performance together with battery.
And there are a lot of minor for most people features, like having both music library together with folder listing, tag editor, tag encoding chooser, widgets, lock screen, etc - lots of them!
PowerAMP has a trial version, full one costs 5$ - not much and definitely worth every penny. It works on 2.0+ devices, supports low resolution screens and works on older devices without FPU. It can be laggy and will drain battery on devices with FPU, but hey - it's the price to pay, sound processing is very resource intensive. So if You lack FPU then either upgrade your device or live with that.
All in all PowerAMP is great and there's no choise. Many people were waiting for proper audio player for years and now it is in Android Market. Grab your copy today!
