Style Jukebox for Android is an easy to use, uncomplicated audio player. It syncs with a desktop web service that lets you upload all your music to it. The upshot of this is that you don’t actually have to store all your music on your phone or tablet - you can stream it anytime you want over the internet. You can also use the app to download any songs that you want to keep reliably available.
The player itself is real simple, and functioned quickly. You can search, swipe left and right between your songs while one is playing, star some favourites. There’s a shuffle button, and a repeat button. Repeat goes through all your songs, but if you tap it again, a “1” comes up, and it keeps repeating the same song. It also has a mini-player in your notification bar, where you can pause or skip back and forth between tracks. The app claims to always play everything in the highest audio quality by default. If your songs are ripped from a CD, you’ll get the album covers and metadata, and it organises everything into artists and albums.
You can store up to 300 songs on the service for free. Seems like plenty to me. You can get an extra 100 songs for every friend you introduce. And of course there’s a premium service for $3 a month or $25 a year, if you really love this. The service is completely free of ads, which makes it a great alternative to services like Spotify. If you already have lots of music stored on your computer, and you want to easily access it without having to copy stuff onto your phone; Style Jukebox could be perfect for you.
