About this app

Probably the best looking music player out there.


Material Design
The user interface matches every single detail of the material design guidelines to ensure Phonograph is an eye candy for you.

Easy to Use
No complicated or overblown menus but a familiar and clean interface.

Last.fm Integration
Phonograph automatically downloads additional information about your artists such as their images or biographies. When you install the official Last.fm app, scrobbling will work right out of the box too.

Dynamic Colors
The UI colors change dynamically to match the main contents base color.

Customizability
There is an inbuilt theme engine with many different colors to choose from.

Tag Editor
The tag editor allows you to easily edit the tags of your music files such as title, artist, album name (...) for single songs or whole albums. You can even either let Phonograph automatically download missing album covers for you (powered by Last.fm) or choose one from your internal storage.

And OF COURSE
- Phonograph has all standard features such as:

- Create and edit playlists
- Homescreen widget
- Lockscreen playback controls
- "Go-To Actions" such as jump from a song or an album right to its artist
- ...

I've loved this app for years for being able to just play my music. Lately though it's been super glitchy. Songs randomly stop playing when I don't have the app open on my screen, the lock screen widget doesn't update the songs right away and when it does, the play button doesn't change to a pause while playing so sometimes the volume will cut out for no reason and I can't tell if it's paused or being annoying. Can't use the play/pause in the standard widget either. I don't know what's going on.

If you just need to download an app to play music, this works fine. If you want a music app that crashes, can't make playlists (despite having the menus and drop-downs to do so), never makes sense of your file directories, and can't delete your music in-app, then Phonograph is really the one for you.

This app is great! So simple, yet so useful for playing my local files. I was using Google Play Music before and it was OK, but it kept pushing for streaming when I just wanted to listen to my music. This app also lets you edit song info, which I appreciate since I always end up with a few "Track 1"s somehow when I download tracks from my computer to my phone. Overall a pretty good experience so far!!
