About this app

Music Folder Player was made for people who don't like to see music displayed based on artist, album, track or playlists. If you prefer organizing your audio tracks in folder this may be the right player for you.

Besides that it comes with a lot of unique features.

• Material Design
• Resume where you left. Stores for each folder where you left
• Show folders as a 'flat' list if you have a small collection
• Show folder hierarchy like in a file manager for larger collections
• Virtual folder with your favorite songs
• Playlists
• Four configurable seek buttons. Very useful for seeking in podcasts or audio books
• Equalizer:
- 4 customizable settings
- 8 predefined settings like Bass Booster, Vocal Booster and Party setting
• Virtual room and reverb effect
• Speed control with pitch correction (OS 4.2+)
Increase or decrease the playback speed of your podcasts or audio books.
Speed control is not suitable for music. Please watch the video:
• Pre-amplifyer: Increase the volume of audio which was recorded with a low level. (OS 4.2+)
• 432 Hz playback mode. Please read this article for details: (OS 4.2+)
• Car/Sports mode with big buttons
• Change volume and balance with two finger gesture. Video:
• Undo function: Undo actions if you accidentally touch a button or select another track
• Shuffle and repeat options (long tap on play/pause button)
• Delete and rename files (long tap on file)
• Sleep timer
• Headset button control (double and triple clicks)
• Search for files and folder
• Share files

Note: Since there are recently some complaints in the review section:
This app is an audio PLAYER, not a DOWNLOADER. If you search for an app to download new music, this app is NOT suitable for you. This player just handles audio files which are already on your device.

Don't worry about 'adware' warnings of some antivirus scanners. Of course the player is not a virus. This is just because the player shows advertisements. The full version is not affected by that.

My favorite music app. I have used for years. The interface is clean, and I love that the songs can be listed by file name rather than tags. My only complaint is that with newer Android phones, this will not play WMA files. Many of the files that I have stored are WMA. Other players have implemented non-native WMA support. I would love to see Music Folder Player do so as well. Still, the interface and that it will list songs by file name allow this to remain my favorite music app.

WMA licenses are extremely expensive. That's probably the reason most device manufacturers removed support. I don't know how other developers are doing that, but I assume most of them decode WMA illegally. I'm sorry, but I can't do that. If someone knows about a way to get a free WMA license, please let me know.

I had tried five other music players before finding this one. (I actually had to search for "android music player that respects folder heirarchy" to find it. Yes, I'm a geek.) I prefer to listen to my music in album order, not by artist, title or length, or other oddball criteria, so finding this player was a godsend. Reasonably intuitive and I don't find the ads nearly as obnoxious as some reviewers do.

It has a good interface layout that matches windows folder system to make it so much easier to find your music. The ads are extremely irritating and difficult to get rid of however I decided to purchase the program it's only a few dollars. Do make them abs less invasive and advertise your price in some way because it's cheap enough.

Sorry, but I don't have any influence on how the ads work. Two years ago or so, you could close the ads immediately via back button. Google thought it's a good idea to disable the back button and let the ad stay on for at least a few seconds without any way for me or other developers to bring back the old behavior.

What's new

It took two years to implement all the changes Google requires for apps targeting 10 and newer.
This is basically a completely new version of the app. Please bare with me if something doesn't work as expected. Drop me a mail instead of posting a bad review.
I'll try to fix all reported issues as soon as possible. Shortcuts on the home screen need to be recreated after the update.
