I'm looking for a free Android media player that's more pleasant to use than Songbird (crashes/freezes on me) and the built-in Sony version (clumsy to navigate) that came preinstalled on my device (an Xperia-S smartphone).
I don't have many specific requirements, beyond:
- Supported formats should include MP3, OGG, and FLAC.
- If I browse to an album, tell it to play that album, and then hit 'next' on the last track in the album, the media player should go to the next album in my library and not back to the first track of current album.
That second point is the main reason I'm trying to find a different media player. Being forced to manually switch from one album to the next is irritating to no end.
I'm after something that lets me select my starting point (whether that's a particular artist, album, or track) and then just traverses through my entire music library from that point until I tell it to stop.
I tried installing Poweramp, and it seems stable enough and provides the desired behavior when advancing to the next track. So I guess the question is, is there a good free alternative to Poweramp?
