    "This is better than many others. I really liked the fact that you can choose your songs, more than pandora and not as long as youtube. This to me is the standard app for music and I use it virtually everyday. "

    "Are you an audiophile like me? We want the best out of our music to hear our music in a way that suits our tastes. To me the app PlayerPro Music Player is that app that most audiophiles need. It goes beyond the audio settings that most android phones have. It allows you to change the way your music sounds change the way we can hear our music. If you're looking for a player that allows customization then this is the app for you."

    "Algorithms are all the rage these days, and I'm sure Pandora had a little something to do with it. The trouble is, it never is really consistent for me. It might be because I listen to a really wide ranging field of music, but the app doesn't seem to really get my preferences, and is constantly giving me songs I would never listen to. As a music service, it's pretty good, but as a predictive software, I don't care for it at all."

    "This app might not be for music lovers, unless they like recording music, then this app has many features, and is easy to understand how to use. I might have to read a manual for some of the features, as they look advanced, and perhaps complex, but I have not tried them yet. Overall I would recommend this app to my friends if they were looking to record."

    "This App has a dizzying array of features, which is good news and bad news. It's a lot to make sure works over updates, and they have failed that test more than they should. I found this App a decent entry in a very competitive field. It has a huge number of installs but a much lower number of reviews. I'm not sure what that says; I could see arguments either way."
