But this is but to mention a few, what are the best apps for opening mp3 files
1. Google Play Music
This music player app comes with Nexus and other Android phones. It’s a decent music player, thanks to Material Design. If you just want a player that’ll open your songs, this will serve your needs.
But if browsing artists, albums, etc, is your spec, you can find those views are hidden in the sidebar. It also has equalizer settings in the sidebar, that’s like having a mini amplifier.
Musixmatch is a great player, but it is recommended to you for how it enhances the music experience on your smartphone.
The floating lyrics widget that works with apps such as Google Play Music and Spotify also floats on Musixmatch.
This widget pulls lyrics of the currently playing song and scrolls automatically so you only see the line that’s playing right now. Just for the widget alone, this app has entertained a lot of downloads and reviews.
The shuttle is among the best-looking music player apps on Android. A Material Design App that is better than Google’s own surely deserves recognition.
The shuttle user interface is its selling point, showing tabs such as artists, albums, etc on the app’s home screen and letting you swipe between these tabs. It also has an equalizer
4. Rocket Player
Rocket Player may not be the prettiest music player, but it is the best option if you want to sync your iTunes library with your Android phone.
However, this isn’t free as you would need to pay a fee to sync this with the iTunes library. Android phone and iTunes on Windows or Mac, are the best advantages with this syncing feature.
