Zimly, Another Alternative Music Player For Android

It’s no secret these days that the stock music player for Android, to put it nicely, is slightly outdated.  Fortunately, with the openness of Android, there are plenty of alternatives for you to pick from.  As I always say, more choice is better, right?  That being said, check out Zimly for Android.  Zimly offers a clean, crisp and new streamlined look for your media player when it comes to playing music, audio and video.  And the best part of it all is, it’s free.  PowerAMP is another great alternative player, but that will run you $4.99 in the market (free version is a 15 day trial). Music Mod isn’t too bad as well, but I felt the interface left a lot to be desired.

Zimly has all of the expected standard features a media player should have.  It’s the design of the application that we’re going for here, being that we just want an updated and contemporary look.  However, all of the necessary functionality is there as well.  If you’re ready to upgrade the look and feel of the stock media player, then head on over to our apps database for more information and for the download.  Let us know what you think of the app in the comments below.  And feel free to let us know what your preferred media player is?


About the Author: Joe Sirianni

Joe was born in New Jersey and spent most of his childhood moving around from state to state. He eventually made his way to Pennsylvania where he met his Portuguese beauty and made her his wife. He now has three great kids and full access to all of the Portuguese food he can eat. Joe's love for mobile technology began when he bought his first Palm Pilot, a Palm M130 and left it on top of his car, driving off, causing it to smash into a thousand pieces. Forced to buy a new device, he quickly discovered that specs were changing so rapidly he was buying a new device every six months just to keep up. Since then, he has constantly felt the need to have the latest and greatest. When the "smartphone" revolution began and integrating cell phones and PDA's was the norm, he quickly jumped to Windows Mobile for several years until the first Android device was launched, the T-Mobile G1. Joe began appreciating all of the free utilities Google provided and sold his soul (his precious data) to Google long before they got into the mobile OS business. So, there was no hesitation at all for him to jump on board and ride the Android train as an early adopter. And boy has it been a blast. Joe now works in the Engineering & Operations dept for a major mobile carrier where he remotely troubleshoots cell sites and loves being an Editor for TalkAndroid.

    Still like poweramp for audio and still waiting for vlc for video. Like you stated its always nice
    to have choices.

    The closest thing I have found to vlc for android is rockplayer, it seems to be the only one with its own software decoder which lets you play just about any codec, unlike all the other players that just use the limited hardware decoder

    IIt should have a widget. I can’t find it if it does. I like it though for a free app it sure beats the stock player. But it needs widget. Also would be nice if I could open with voice commands. Like “listen to”.
