n7player Music Player

4 Star
PROSCONS
 Nice User Interface✕ No radio or podcast support
 Album artwork integration Lyric display requires an additional plug-in
The n7player create a unique experience when you use it: the user interface of the music player is presented as a “tag cloud” with the artist or song name appearing on your screen in an almost scrapbook look. One of the downsides, however, of the app is the lack of radio functions or the ability to sync and download podcasts directly to it. However, despite this shortfall on the apps behalf, it’s definitely still worth checking out for its uniqueness.

Rocket Music Player

4 Star
PROSCONS
 Great features✕ Many file formats only found in PRO version
 Ad-free No radio function
 Various designs and themes To synchronize with iTunes, an additional plug-in is required.
The Rocket Music Player is a feature-rich underdog which competes against some of the bigger names. With various different templates and themes that you can download, Rocket Music Player gives you a bunch of options to play around with in an ad-free environment. While the free edition is lacking some of the features that the PROS version incorporates, such as supporting some specific file formats, it does well with what it has. An extensive search offers a different approach to music being able to search across different tags, playlists, or locations.
