Music playback is one of the main uses within a smartphone, these devices substituted a bunch of devices and music players were among them. Almost every manufacturer has built a music player that goes along their customization of the Android operating system. Of course, there’s also Google Play Music which is the default player in Android and there are many more third-party music players available in the Play Store. All of those players include different features and are designed in many different ways, so users can choose the one they like the most. Now, those who got tired of the looks of their current player or want new functionalities can try a new one called Pulsar Music Player.
First of all, the app was designed following the Material Design language, so you can expect a consistent look on your Android device with various color palettes and nice animations or transitions, plus the app is really lightweight as it will only take 2.3 MB of your storage. Your music collection is organized by Artist, Album, Folder and Genre, or you can simply view all your available songs in the dedicated tab, which includes a floating button to Shuffle them all. There are some automatically created playlists such as Most Played, Recent Played and Newly Added. The app can automatically sync missing album or artist imagery and there’s a search button on the top right of various screens to help you find exactly what’s on your mind. There’s also support for gapless playback and users can rearrange the tabs that appear on the home screen as well as their order. They also get to choose if the artwork is displayed on the lock screen, and there’s also a sleep timer.
There’s also a paid version called Pulsar+, which includes 15 additional colorful themes (there are only 3 in the free version). There’s also a 5-band equalizer controller with 9 pre-built equalizer presets, plus some audio effects like bass booster and reverb. In either case, the music player can be controlled from the included widget, from the lock screen and the notifications panel. Also, additional languages are supported and the developer is asking for help in case you’d like to support the app by translating into another language.
