After having tried quite a few music players,I came across player pro after reading the review of an iPhone user who had shifted to android and found a replacement of the iPhone music player in it just because its equally gorgeous.There are various categories according to: album, artist,genre, playlist and your sd card music folder.The good thing is all of these have their individual artwork, which is just beautiful.But unfortunately that is also its only drawback.There are lots of repetition of the same album songs under different artwork.If you have all the informations correctly like which album its from,artists,year etc only then it might sort perfectly,but that's a real pain.You can use it in its native state of course You can also download the artworks and album covers manually from within the player.And if you like tweaking with your music settings, there are plenty of customization available.

Pros: The smart playlists. Smart. playlists. Let me say it again: Smart playlists!!! Cons: Lacks more shuffle options, you have to install a third party app to get a better equalizer and some other features (like gapless play and crossfade), doesn't play some music archives
