If you recently bought an Android phone Ã¯Â¿Â½ and about half of ALL smartphone buyers lately did exactly that Ã¯Â¿Â½ you know itÃ¯Â¿Â½s a Swiss army knife of a thing. But how are you with the music player? Meh, right? IÃ¯Â¿Â½m B.C. with the Top 5 Android music players thatÃ¯Â¿Â½ll make your forget how to even spell iPod, courtesy of CNETÃ¯Â¿Â½s Josh Goldman. #5 is the Amazon Cloud Player: This freebie is hot new stuff from Amazon. Buy, store and play from the cloud. Or download if you like. So quaint! 5GB of space is free, 20 if you buy just one MP3 album from Amazon. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½s not that well developed in terms of managing music just yet, but itÃ¯Â¿Â½s a healthy taste of the future. #4 is MixZing: This guy has something akin to the Genius technology from iTunes, so itÃ¯Â¿Â½s sort of spooky how it can suggest music based on just a song or two you feed it. ItÃ¯Â¿Â½ll make and tune playlists that fit you better and better as you use it. It also has built in artist info and YouTube video links as well as a graphic EQ. Free, but if you pay $5 the ads go away. #3 is TuneWiki. People are either music people or lyric people. This is for the latter. It shows timed, paced lyric subtitles while also getting the album art up there with the player controls. You can drive it by voice, and uses it to map the locations of other TuneWiki users nearby so that whole spooky obsession with lyrics thing can wig out someone other than just your former friends. Oh, and its free. #2 is POWER AMP. No, in spite of the title, it doesnÃ¯Â¿Â½t just play death metal. Totally about sound, with a 10 band EQ that sweetens just about every audio format. And you can even set EQ per song, which with the variable Ã¯Â¿Â½qualityÃ¯Â¿Â½ of most MP3Ã¯Â¿Â½s is a welcome thing. Bottom line, Power Amp sound great. Its $4.99 but with a free, 15-day trial Before we get to #1, donÃ¯Â¿Â½t think there are just 5 great audio players for Android: Check out JoshÃ¯Â¿Â½s full 10 app slideshow. And if you have questions about using your Android phone as an audio player connected to your car, check out the Android Atlas podcast ( )where our car tech college Antuan Goodwin can connect the dots for you. OK, the #1 music player we love for Android is Player Pro. The features Ã¯Â¿Â½ where to start? Search, download, and save lyrics; great tag editing; 10-band equalizer, social network integration, and Ã¯Â¿Â½ I love this -- five really usable home-screen widgets and different two lock-screen widgets with customizable control options. This is the do all player for Android. It costs an odd $4.51 but thereÃ¯Â¿Â½s a free, five-day trial. Just pay, youÃ¯Â¿Â½ll love it. Great music players for Android, just one more reason the smartphone will eventually eat the entire tech industry.
