Alongside the equaliser sits a pre-amp control which is a handy way to give the volume some extra oomph in loud surroundings. PowerAmp also adds Flac and WMA file support to the Android usuals.
The app comes with a built-in ID3-tag editor and if you press and hold an album cover alternate sleeve images are summoned up. To access music directly from your homepage there is a selection of attractive 4x1, 4x2 and 4x4 widgets.
The only downside is the price - the free version is only good for a 15-day trial and if you want to carry on using it you will need to cough up $4.99 (£3). Not a huge amount on money, true, but it a music player of this quality really should be part of the OS. ®
