Poweramp Music Player is just what the name implies: a powerful music player for your Android device. The app supports a long list of file formats including ogg, flac, wma, mp3, mp4, wmv, ape, mpc, aiff, and tta.

Poweramp Music Player offers several outstanding features. Among these features is a 10-band optimized graphical equalizer that is designed to work well with all of the file formats listed above. There are also several different adjustments that be made by the app's users to get the best possible results. You can even set up a custom profile to tell the app exactly what your preferences are so that it will perform to your standards every time.

The app also features options such as gapless playback and crossfade and can play music regardless of which folder the files are stored in on your Android phone or tablet. The app typically moves from one folder or directory to another with no problems whatsoever.

Another nice feature of Poweramp Music Player is that the app displays the lyrics of your favorite songs as you listen to them. The app also includes a search function that you can use to find lyrics, if necessary. The app even allows you to download the original album art for your favorite albums that you have downloaded to your device. There is also a lock screen, which is totally customizable.
