    "I've actually played with this recently, as I was looking for an app to play my mp3 audio books. This is pretty good, though I found it to be a little "heavy" for a music app. The eq works pretty well, but is better suited with earbuds or headphones. It's nice, but there are better and lighter apps out there."

    "I'm a huge fan. I just switched over from Pandora after they got me with a monthly fee 2 days early. I love how they are a little more single artist oriented and give me ample time before asking me to indicate i am listening."

    "There are hundreds of music apps out there on the Play store so it can be hard to find something different. Instead of reinventing the wheel, AudioPocket takes YouTube which is already great for music, and turns it into something better. I love that I can use this app to listen to music in a new and exciting way."

    "I don't have a lot of my own music, I usually use one of the paid services; however, when I'm switching between devices all the time and don't want to redownload playlists I've changed and everything else, it's really nice to be able to just grab my own music from the cloud. It's easy to use and I don't have to download my music all the time."
