It’s no secret these days that the stock music player for Android, to put it nicely, is slightly outdated.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?
