The competition on the MP3 player market is fierce, giving users plenty of great options to choose from. In order to stand out from the crowd, a program has to bring some unique features to the table. Mufin player does indeed do much more than just play your music, but its special features don't work quite as well as we would have liked.
Mufin player's interface isn't the most intuitive thing we've ever seen, but it's fairly similar to other music players in its layout, with a few menus across the top and a list of directories and playlists down the left side. A details view displays a track list with the typical artist, album, and track length information, while the cover view arranges the tracks by album and displays the album covers. The vision view is interesting; it purports to arrange songs in a "galaxy" based on their mood (plotted along the x-axis) and whether they are more acoustic or synthetic (plotted along the y-axis). It seemed to handle the former better than the latter. The program's recommendation feature lets users select a song and then have the program recommend other songs based on that song's characteristics; this sounds like a cool feature, but our experience with it wasn't particularly impressive. We did like it that mufin player lets users upload up to 200 tracks or 1 GB of music to the mufin.drive, which can then be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection. A built-in Help file provides a detailed description of the program's features. Overall, mufin player isn't bad, but it would be better if its unique features worked with more precision.
Mufin player installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
