Editors' Review

+

Your Pocket PC might have shipped with a music player already installed, but PocketMusic makes a case for itself as your mobile jukebox of choice. By default, the program's soothing blue interface puts all of the main controls near the center of the screen, with additional icons for accessing options; activivating the EQ and X-Bass features; and shuffling tracks. The program also features a "skin" that makes PocketMusic look almost identical to Winamp, but we had to fool around for a bit to find our way back to the default layout.

Creating a playlist is a simple matter of clicking the appropriate icon and browsing your handheld for songs. The adjustable 10-band EQ comes with a healthy helping of presets, and you can easily enable or disable a crossfading feature. The built-in alarm clock is certainly a plus, as is support for codecs beyond MP3, including OGG and WMA. The 15-day trial is a bit shorter than we'd like but should give most mobile users enough time to fully evaluate the program. Pocket PC owners who routinely use their handheld for entertainment purposes should test this one out sooner or later.

February 14, 2007  |  By cesmoisti

Pros

the look

Cons

You can't register with the number that they give you, so after 3 days you lose the right to use the program

"To the c/net editor:"

August 23, 2006  |  By jhencken

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Pros

n/a

Cons

Don't call it "free" when it isn't. It's shareware with a free trial. Why lie?

"Fantastic application!"

March 05, 2006  |  By elnator

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Pros

This program has it all. You can even get add ons for some of the newer file formats out there. I spent several hours online searching for the right music app for my new 6700 and settled on this one after trying it for free for 7 days. It has very clear playback an extremely intuitive interface and for those used to Winamp it has a skin that looks just like WinAMP. As a m atter of fact you can even mod it with most winamp 2.0 skins available on the 'net.

Cons

I honestly have nothing negative that I've discovered about it yet.

"Easy Interface and improved navigation"

April 17, 2005  |  By pwtwong

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Pros

I like PocketMusic 2.52 better than all the previous versions! If they released this version last year, I don't have to purchase Pocket Player... o well... #1 PDA Music Player!

Cons

If they can make the buttons slightly bigger since I use it in my car and I feel bigger buttons (3 main ones - play, next, stop) would be nice! Maybe add this option in the future?

"Good, but not really free."

October 10, 2004  |  By abrahamcaleb

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Summary

At first it worked extremely well but if you choose not to upgrade at the end of the period it stops playing ogg ad wma. Considering my entire collection is in ogg, it became useless. Otherwise, its great. It even lets you cut off the screen to save power, but still use programmable-buttons to interact, lets my HP5695 play for almost 6 hours.

"Locks up my iPAQ 2215 (conflict with sleep mode override)"

March 14, 2004

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Summary

Both the bundle and freeware versions lock up my iPAQ 2215. Here's what happens: I set Pocket Music to override my iPAQ's sleep mode. I load some tracks into the program and start playing. At the time my iPAQ is scheduled to go into sleep mode (on external power, this is a maximum of 30 minutes after the last keystroke) the music stops. I can't wake the screen up, and if I use the power button, all I get is a white screen...I have to perform a hard reset to get the iPAQ to work.

This is a serious problem that really shouldn't exist in either the pay or free versions of this program.

"Good FREE product - What an improvement on MediaPlayer!"

February 28, 2004

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Summary

Overall I find this application good. Made GREAT by configuring 'Key Mapping Options'. I have made it more useable by setting a hardware key for landscape mode so I can toggle between standard screen or large screen buttons when using it in the car. Try It!

"Very Good!"

February 25, 2004

 |  Version: PocketMusic 2.52

Summary

Overall, the software was extremely good. After using Windows Media Player for two years, this software was exhillerating. The interface could be better, many of the buttons are small and can be difficult to press without the use of a stylus.
