Maple MP3 Player: Written and Video Android App Review
We’re going to be honest with you guys: No matter what phone we’ve tried, we just can’t seem to find an Android device that comes stock with a truly impressive music player. This is in comparison to some truly incredible offerings that we’ve found elsewhere in the past, like on the Palm Pre. Thankfully, though, we don’t have to wait in misery any longer: Thanks to Maple MP3 Player by developer sqr5 we can now fully live out our musical dreams on the Android platform. The app is incredibly feature rich, and serves as a mobile music and audiobook station for our phone. And for our full review of the app, you need only to jump on down below the break!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, the app has one goal in mind and one goal only—improving in leaps and bounds the control and sound of your Android phone’s music. It does this through a variety of studio quality methods, each of which we appreciated immensely. To begin with, the app comes with a full multi-band EQ that can be tweaked to get just the right sound. It’s also got detailed bookmarking and A-B looping for those of you who want to use an audiobook on the go. Want to adjust the playback speed of your phone’s music? Why not with Maple MP3 Player! It’s as easy as dragging a slider, as is creating a pitch change (without any speed complications). And with the paid addition of the app, you can even add a slick reverb to your tracks, or boost the bass. We liked the latter a lot, as we often find our in-phone speakers a bit tinny: With Maple MP3 Player we were able to get the sound back up to a superb quality in seconds.
Design and Interface
Our only real problem with the app comes in the form of its interface. The app reminds us an whole lot of the sort of mixing boards and sound decks we used to use to create jingles back in the 1980s. They were big, powerful, and very functional, but not the prettiest to look at. Maple MP3 Player is the same way, offering an entire load of features, all of which are easy to get to. But with so much black, and so many sharp corners and angles, the app’s aesthetics will likely appeal more to genuine audiophiles than those looking for a cheap player replacement.
We were really quite tempted to talk about the expensive $4.95 price tag that comes associated with the app, but to be honest, we see only value with Maple MP3 Player. The app fixes all of our musical woes on the Android platform, and with that in mind, we can’t help but recommend it. It’s a tremendous value, and if you’re looking for something of this nature, there’s no better place to start than with Maple MP3 Player.
