Editors' review

Free MP3 Player offers a specialized alternative to catch-all media players that have proliferated lately and that may provide inconsistent quality. Because this program is designed to play only files in MP3 format, it can produce a more uniformly high-quality listening experience.

Pros

Playlist creation: This app allows you to create playlists of your favorite songs or other audio files, so that you can listen continuously without having to manually switch to the next track. There is also an option to Randomize Playlist if you're in the mood to mix things up a bit.

Clear controls: This app presents all navigation options in a clear and accessible way. There are buttons for Fast Forward, Skip Ahead, Rewind, Skip Back, Play, and Stop. You can also open and play a file directly from the app's main interface window.

Cons

Unwanted extras: Installing this app sends you on a path through a minefield of special offers attempting to install unwanted programs on your computer. It's possible to install only the program you want and not any of the others, but you have to be paying attention throughout the entire process.

Bottom Line

If you need a new alternative player for MP3 files, this is a good option to try. It's free, its controls are straightforward, and it can play MP3 files with no conversions needed. Just pay attention during the installation if you don't want any extras.

    "The presence of identical reviews raises a red flag"

    August 08, 2014   |   By ronc2

    Version: Free MP3 Player 1.0

    Pros

    The description sounds good, but...
    (I think I have to give at least one star to be able to post, but according to what I read here I'd prefer to give none).

    Cons

    The reviews by RosieBarclay and Hillaryacia are word for word identical;
    the reviews by Marthahomas and foxsally are also word for word identical;

    Sure looks to me like somebody is "salting" the reviews. If you don't understand what I mean, the old term "salting a mine".refers to the shady practice of sprinkling a few flakes of gold dust in an otherwise barren mine site in order to fool a prospective buyer into believing he was buying a valuable ore-rich mining claim.

    Summary

    Any software that relies on fake reviews is not for me, I won't even bother downloading it. Cnet should pay more attention to what gets posted in reviews if the reviews are to have any value at all to other users.

    "Does NOT work"

    August 07, 2014   |   By maryann_30

    Version: Free MP3 Player 1.0

    Pros

    cannot think of anything, except perhaps that its .... free?

    Cons

    1. It tried to install a whole bunch of other stuff.
    2. AVG flagged it as containing malware
    3. I paused AVG, so the free mp3 player can install, and it did.
    4. I tried playing numerous .mp3 files, no cigar.

    Summary

    5. Total waste of time and effort, ah, yes, mood too.

    This is an excellent software application to play MP3 with high quality. I was amazed at the number of features and options that it had included - in spite of being free - to enhance the sound output qualitatively. Very impressive tool!

    "Best free MP3 player for free."

    May 23, 2014   |   By foxsally

    Version: Free MP3 Player 1.0

    Pros

    My media player has been acting up quite a lot, off late. I downloaded this MP3 player for free, and I must say; I am very impressed. I didn't expect much off it since I downloaded it for free but I was wrong.

    Cons

    No problems faced with the player so far.

    MP3 files are quite popular amongst my friends and they keep sharing them with me. But the problem has been to find the right player, which I have now. It's classy, intuitive and very easy to use. Totally love it.

    It downloads additional software.

    "Very friendly MP3 player"

    April 10, 2014   |   By JodiRDesantis

    Version: Free MP3 Player 1.0.9.1

    Pros

    MP3 format is currently, the most popular format of music found anywhere. Therefore, having a MP3 player is must in anybody's system. All the players that I had downloaded compromised on quality and thus killed all the fun. But this tool is simply the best.

    Cons

    Very useful
