It appears ability to browse the file system folders has been removed from the free version as well.

Hi, thanks for the free app!

I just tested it 10min for fun on my Galaxy S3 (CyanogenMod 13), it worked nicely with opus, apple aac, flac & wv ... it worked flawlessly with splitted files with tags but I think the library relies too much on tags, as at first I had trouble to find the flac CDImage+cue without tag metadata that I scanned ... it took me a while to realize it was in the "unknown" category (... which is logical as it didn't browse the CUE sheet but not intuitive ... I first thought it didn't find my CDImage.flac at all & was wondering if it was a bug until I finally found it).

So far I was an AIMP4 user & I will keep using AIMP for now because from what I have seen I badly miss the CUE sheet support.

Is CUE sheet support planned ? Is it a feature of the Pro version ? (Sorry I didn't follow the development closely, I was already happy with AIMP for my basic use) ... I mean on desktop, the advanced CUE sheet support is the very reason why I switched from Winamp 5 to F2K ten years ago ... so I was slightly disapointed by the apparent lack of CUE sheet support personnaly.

Also when F2K Mobile will grow mature & become stable & complete, will there be a website with links to download the APK outside the store ?

Finally, how do you pin the widget (if there is one) on the wallpaper ? It's not in the widget list. I mean a "sort of widget" appears in the top menu & in the front page when you wake it up from sleep. But that is not really a traditional widget, it's more a control bar integrated to the system.

Anyway thks again. I will definitely check how it evolves in the future.

Android root filesystem browsing is gone from both free and beta builds. If you have reasons to use it, please tell me why exactly and I'll reconsider - or provide a prettier alternative.

I think some people have files with no ID Tags, and are browsing just by folder name.

Spoon, is there a reason why the iOS version doesn't pick up tags in files stored in the Documents folder? The sort by genre sees them having no genre tag, but the other sorts don't recognize them at all. When viewing and playing files in the Documents folder, all that shows up is the filename.

Private home servers, I know this may not be the most convenient option, but it can talk to foo_upnp over the internet - just publish your foo_upnp service by configuring user/password and forwarding the port, then specify http://user:password@server-address/ in user specified UPnP servers.

I tried this and it connected to the instance but threw a DNS error for me when I attempted to play something.  Initially tried with a URL, but it did the same using the IP.

Thanks for all your efforts.

In the times of common 32-128 gb cards I do not think that massive streaming support over internet is important. Can be used at home for WiFi playback, though. Still, using memory card is probably safer in terms of playback quality and better for battery life.

Yes spoon has guessed it correctly. Occassionally playing files where there are no tags. Also browsing internal / external storage file systems would be enough, I'm not looking for ability to browse the root file system if it makes a difference.
Perhaps in the future there will be a way to share a file or a folder to Foobar 2000 or even share m3u playlist from a web browser to Foobar 2000 via standard Android share menu. In that case ability to browse the file system won't be needed at least I won't miss it.

I don't like to sound like troll, but I would be extremelly happy to hear you are at least able to acknowledge my earlier posts on accessibility. Might you be able to look into that later on please or is further input from me or anyone with more expertise needed?

You don't need root filesystem browsing for this.
Just set the path to your library and you can browse in the folders

Well, I answered my own question. UPnP will send mp3 files over with tags, but does not transfer tags when transcoding from ALAC to MP3.

Thank you for your hard work on the Android app. Could I please ask the following two questions, which pertain to features I use frequently in the main desktop application:

1. Do you intend to add support for Foobar Title Formatting language in the future? Will it be possible to customise how track information is displayed in a way similar to the desktop application?

2. Do you intend to add support for organising tracks by tags other than artist, song, genre, etc? I ask as some of my music uses custom tags -- these can be searched/filtered within the desktop application, but it would seem not within the Android app?

First of all, congrats and thanks!

I played a bit with the Android version (on CM12.1/Android5.1) and here are my findings/questions:

1. I noticed that gapless works flawlessly, which is great and not typical for Android players. Does it come at the cost of higher CPU/battery use?

2. If I (1) browse with the folder structure, (2) play a song and then (3) go back to the list of folders and then (4) go back to the folder that has the playing song... there's no playback sign next to the playing track and if I tap on the track it starts from the beginning. Same if it's paused.
This seems like a bug (or at least it's not consistent with the tag based browsing).

3. Feature request: It would be nice if (optionally) the track number was shown on the main playing screen and on the lock screen.

Windows Phone 8.1 can be upgraded to Windows 10 mobile for free.
On many phones it can't be upgraded, so once again: will fb2k mobile be released for Windows Phone 8.1?

I like the "Start playing on insertion of headphones" option. :)

Is there a possibility to include an option to either pause play or continue on speaker on removal of headphones?

This is definitely missing.

What's also missing is a background service that watches for headphone connects. Better Bluetooth support would also be good like resume from call.

Thanks for making this superb app available for Android, working great on Lollipop with lossy WavPack files and AAC TVBR.

Can't wait for playlists support.

Major congrats.

I'm enjoying the app. One problem is that in Windows 10's All Apps list, the UWA and Win32 versions both show "foobar2000", and it's difficult to distinguish between them. Happily, when both are added to the Start menu, the icons are different. Perhaps the All Apps listing should show something different for each version?

Edit: I'm on build 14332, which might affect ... well, everything.
That's so plausible, I can't believe it.

....ehm.. no
Don't blame him entirely, he may not have been able to dig up a good player from all the shovelware on the Play Store.

PowerAmp is a good choice, I hear.

If you like lots of retro formats, there's also Droidsound-E, and zxtune.

Feel free to suggest ideas for this player from those other players, which may or may not be integrated.
