Because of music’s importance in our lives, music players are some of the most important and frequently used applications on Android. If you are looking for a free and lightweight solution, XDA Forum Member kcrims has something that might interest you. Pixel Player is a highly customizable and powerful music player that can replace other, more popular applications. And it won’t use all your system resources because it’s a very lightweight application.
What does Pixel Player has to offer? Holo UI, lockscreen controls, queue management, widgets, and headset button controls are just a small subset of its available functions. The player is actively developed and kcrims is open for suggestions, so Pixel Player can easily become a perfect player for you.
The app is still in its beta stage, so may contain some bugs. It’s a very interesting application for all music lovers nonetheless. It will work on devices running Android 4.0 and newer, which by now is the vast majority of users.
If you are looking for free and functional music player, make your way to the application thread and give Pixel Player a try.
