Hard to learn ... AT FIRST! But, if you take the time to learn it, it's really worth it. Unusual UI makes it more difficult to master. Once you understand how it's setup, then you'll love it. Great at displaying lyrics ( SYLT or USLT). Nice work on displaying Art Covers as well as the lyrics. Scrolls even unsynchronized lyrics through a smart algorithm Not perfect but certainly better than no scrolling). Give it a try mainly if you enjoy lyrics with your music.

Can't figure out how to open without going into a file explorer, long pressing the mp3, and selecting "open with". Shouldn't a way to select the mp3 be built into app? Beyond that annoyance it otherwise works fine.
