BlackPlayer is probably one of the very best local music players for people who want something highly functional, fast, and efficient at what it does.

The app supports all standard music formats such as MP3, WAV, OGG, and FLAC (for devices running Android 4.1 and higher). All expected features such as gapless playback, album art cover management, lyrics, ID3 Tag editor, or very useful music scrobbing for those of us who like to use services like last.fm.

We especially like its easy to use minimalistic user interface that puts all essential features right under your fingertips and is really a pleasure to use.
