    "This is a great app for playing the actual music files on your phone. It's pretty easy to use, but again the downside is that the files actually have to be local (who has local files anymore?) Something like spotify or Amazon music can do both."

    "You know what I miss? I miss the good old Zune HD player from Microsoft. This n7player Music Player kinda reminds me of the user interface of that device. It's so simple, yet elegant and the details are presented with this black theme that is easy to the eyes. I wish all music players think about how they present music, as it is part of the whole experience as well."

    "This app is a mess. Too many custmooization features, that could lead you to clutter your space. I also can't bear the gimmicky equalizer "with 6 bands and bass boost" which basically just muddies the sound when you try yo use it."

    "It's really the best on-device music player if you want no frills playback. I love the fact that I can use it from my favorite file explorer, and it's already standard on Android, so no new installs necessary. Great software from our Google overlords."

    "Visually Pulsar Music Player is stunning. It has a Great UI. I like the tile system for artists. It comes with 6 themes so im able to pick a color i like. U also have a sound bar that has Smartcast build into it. With that i can cast it and listen to it on a better speaker, when im at home. Its great at gathering images and info on the artists in my library. The tag editor has come in hand a many times for files that have incorrect details in its properties."

    "I like what this media player is trying to do, only there seems to be a bit of a learning curve for the developer; one bug fixed for someone else would create one for me. He's on the right track though, and I'm hopeful that this gets better as it matures."

    "I feel like this is a decent option, but not a great one. Not only do you have to purchase the app, but then you still have in app purchasing. Less users have downloaded it and more bugs have been reported than other similar apps. "
