SomePlayer – An AweSome audio player for the N900

If you thought that development on Maemo was slowing down, think again. SomePlayer is a feature packed audio player with a simple yet well-designed UI. Based on Qt, it is fast and offers all the things that were missed in the stock ‘Media Player’ like playlist management, Equalizer, and most of all, full-portrait support.

SomePlayer landed in Extras last week and has already been downloaded a whopping 45000 times. Here are some screenshots:

The software is already available in 5 languages (pl, it, zh_CN, ru, zh_TW); if you can provide help with more, jump in!

The creators seems to be from Russia. Kudos to the team for an aweSome app.

    Thanks for this. Will give a try. Do you know any better file manager for Maemo. When I click on a file, maemo tries to open it (unlike PC, where we need to double click to open a file). This is a head ache when I try to select and delete multiple files. Any solutions within current file manager? Or is there any better file manager for Maemo?

    This player has lots of nice features, though I’d have to disagree with your description of the UI. The stock player’s UI is simple and intuitive. SomePlayer’s UI is clunky and difficult to navigate. Yes, you can “get used to it”, though it takes 3 times as many taps and menus vs the stock player just to play some music…

      Thanks for the comment.

      Compared to Media Player, SomePlayer offers some unique features and in my opinion does a pretty good job of making them all available in a way that does require getting used to. Its a great start and I am sure it will only get better.

    Hate to say this but as it stands it isn’t that great
    The fact there is no way to list by album (only artist) really does limit the usefulness of such a player

      Yes, Album search is a basic feature that should be supported in the future. Its absence however, is not a deal-breaker for me.

    How about flac and ogg? Anyone who knows?

    Shame it doesn’t use the same database as the default media player. I’d also be interested in weather it sends the right signals so the last.fm scrobbler works just as if I was using the default player. Kinda a killer for me the latter…

    very nice if it works.
