Billy

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This unusually named audio player falls short of many competitors due to a poor design, limited functionality, and a lack of even the most standard features. The interface is basically a blank box for your playlist, with several menu items above it. You won't find any buttons or icons for playing, pausing, or stopping files, forcing you to access these functions through the menu or hot keys. Also, unlike most other audio players, Billy lacks the ability to fast-forward, rewind, edit ID3 tags, and play CDs. On the plus side, this audio player doesn't introduce gaps between songs and lets you add a playlist link to your favorites. Perhaps the best aspect of Billy, however, is that it's completely free--but in the long run, even that can't save this minimalist audio player from obscurity.
