Upgrade your music player interface to something nearing the iPod. Impressive.
by on September 24, 2010
Phones have obviously already hit that level where they’re a do-it-all device, which means they have to be good at everything and that includes playing media. Microsoft almost got it right with the mobile version of Windows Media, but it lacks a mature touch interface with good support for album art, lyrics and more. Enter S2P.
This is a thumb-optimised player that’s subtle in design and fast in use. It works exactly as you’ve come to expect, browse your music as a monolithic list, by artist, album genre or playlist. It’ll pick up the artwork and lyrics, displaying both if you want. It spotted all of our media, even the songs stored on the SD card and the on-the-go playlist enables you to build up an on-the-fly list of songs.
It has intuitive controls and quick access to options and it suitably replaces WMP in the system. It doesn’t play video, nor does it have a podcast/audio book type mode, which is a shame as it could then offer everything in one package.
