    "n7player is one of the few music players that I've found that will play flac files without issues. It's the best app that I've found so far. My son doesn't like some other aspects of the app, like the size of the toggles, etc but I don't have that many issues with the interface."

    "Very reliable, industry standard that works as advertised. Doubt anyone here is unfamiliar with VLC, just wanted to clarify that it is as good as everyone says, and if you aren't using it you're missing out."
