Due to whatever reason sometimes they have to deny access to the songs you could listen and put in your library and playlist before. This is especially annoying if you spend a while putting together (many) playlist(s). See More
Spotify desktop client allows for third-party apps. They extend the functionality of Spotify and many of them offer new ways of discovering music. Noteworthy apps include Moodagent, Last.fm, Swarm.fm, ShareMyPlaylists, The Hype Machine, We Are Hunted, Shuffler.fm. See More
Users can easily manage the tags of their library with the in-built tag editor. This makes for a great way to manage ones content keeping things tidy without having to use an external app to tag edit. The tag editor is able to download album art as well as edit artist, album, and title names. See More
There is no way to go easily go back a specific amount of time (for example: Audible has a button that allows you to go back 30 seconds). The status bar could be more time specific. If you want to go back to a particular segment of listening, there is no way to know exactly where you will land. You have to do some kind of guessing and it is annoying. Lot of time wasted in searching in a blind manner. See More
There is no option to listen to lossless music, even if that is what the user has uploaded. The highest quality is 320kbps MP3s. If a lossless track has been uploaded and the user then downloads the track at a later date the file will also only be a 320kbps MP3. See More
The app offers no way to actually start up in ones library, either in the desktop Chrome app or the Android app. For those that only use this app for listening to their purchased or uploaded music this is pretty annoying as there s no real need for the front page of recommendations and activity. This doe snot necessarily need to be some social platform but just a way to listen to ones music, really the user should have the choice, especially if they are paying for this service through purchased music or their streaming service.

Through the use of a plugin (of which there are three popular ones), users can get bit-exact sound output straight to their DAC or soundcard. While not something every user will use, for audiophiles this is a pretty important feature. See More
Best quality player. Best sound. Skin and library ui are not great See More
In a parametric equalizer, each filter cuts or boosts a range of frequencies. Each filter has three controls: 1). frequency: the center of the frequency range to be cut or boosted 2). gain: the amount of boost or cut 3). Q: the "sharpness" of the boost or cut, with higher Q meaning a narrower filter See More
Great looking and ad-free music player for Android. See More
My go-to player as it plays most formats, imports from tags and uses 5-star ratings which helps me to create smart (dynamic) playlists, displays a great logical user-interface and has an add-on DSP (free) that allows for good sound shaping. Its downfall, which is shared by all music players on Android except foobar200, is the support for the multi-value tags (genre & artist). It uses the first value. See More
Rather than scanning for music automatically (and possibly including ringtones, alarms, etc. in your music library), the user can choose which file folders GoneMad Music Player checks for music and exclude folders with audio files that the user doesn't want in their library. See More
