Last comments from Android Market
I am not quite sure why this player requires access to my personal information.
Too slow on start and switch. Too high CPU usage during playback (3% vs 0.8% of winamp). EQ is pretty useless - only lower freqs are audibly affected.
Works great with DINC!
Buggy and doesn't display album art.
Best feature is the bookmarking capability.
With no mention of this version being a TRIAL, this app and its makers will be ignored by this user. Also, the sound control button override is lame.
It's a shame that after acre days it says that I need to upgrade in the app and there is nothing about that in the market listing... Low and sneaky
For years I've been wanting a good audio book player that remembers where I am in each playlist! Great, clean interface. Nice widget.
The EQ is a joke.
Very hard to use. Could improve usability...
