PowerAMP Android Review - Power Amp
The PowerAmp application is one of the best Android apps I have used so far. It is by far the best music app out of many I have tried. It has every feature I would ever wish for. If your in a hurry, read no further. Just go download the PowerAmp 5 day trial or even buy the full version for $4.99. I'm sure you will love it if you love listening to music on your droid as much as I do.
PowerAMPP makes listening to your music fun and easy and offers numerous ways to browse and play your music. It has just about every feature I could ever want. This is one of those Android applications that has every feature you would want and then some you probably wouldn't have thought of, but then end up finding very useful.
I really love PowerAMP, so much so that I'm taking the time to review this great 'Droid app so others like yourself can also enjoy listening to your music on the go in style.

I have only touched on the major features here and I'm sure I've forgot a few. Then there are so many things you can tweak within the settings that if I were to cover those I would be writing this hub all day today and tomorrow. Yea PowerAMP is THAT feature rich.
Let me wrap this up by saying this. Right now I'm listening to Van Halen's Eruption (The Best Version) with the volume and the preamp set to the max on my Logitech Wireless Boombox speakers, and some other speakers, and it sounds totally awesome! PowerAmp's EQ and preamp let me adjust everything so it sounds pretty damn sweet.
While most MP3 players sound great it really comes down to the features a music app has. This is where PowerAMP kills the competition. Go download PowerAMP right now, check it out, then come back and leave a comment expressing your opinion of PowerAMP. Also be sure to leave your PowerAMP rating via the cool little stars below. PowerAMP rocks, right? Of course it does.
