The title says it all. Is there an Android app similar to Music Bee, that will allow me to listen to music and itunes podcasts? What do you use? I'm looking something free that is semi customizable or at least has a dark theme. Thanks.

I used this in the past and was great, seems to have moved on with extras, themes and upgrades...

The built in Music Player works fine as does the Media Monkey Android App...

Also popular with forum members is GoneMad and PowerAmp that sync both directions with MB not sure if they have free versions though..

I can highly recommend Poweramp, there are several skins for him, of course also in black:

The link Freddy referenced is for a -theme- for Rocket Player. Rocket Player the actual app is here:

There are free and paid versions, but the free may simply be a trial.

Download the latest MusicBee v3.3 patch from here.
Unzip into your MusicBee directory and overwrite existing files.

Check out the MusicBee Wiki.
How to post screenshots is here.

Poweramp: free trial for 15 days
GoneMad: free trial for 14 days
These two, as stated by Freddy, works with MusicBee.

Rocket Player: free limited version and paid full version
The free version works fine, but lacks some "premium" features such as gapless playback and replaygain.
It works with iSyncr (free trial with very limited track numbers), which is a fully functional wired/wifi syncer with iTunes.
iSyncr works with Poweramp and GoneMad and some other as well, but (1) needs last.fm app to sync playcount, (2) doesn't support rating, and (3) sometimes messes up skip count with play count.

If you're an audiophile, check out Neutron. It may look like it's from the 90's but it does support native DSD playback.

I started using Musicolet few weeks ago, like it very much :-)


- Completely free
- Many options, including dark skin
