The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Send lawyers, guns and money

As for sound, well PowerAmp can’t work miracles but having simple bass and treble controls makes finding the audio sweet spot rather easier than having to mess about with a plethora of EQ settings and sound profiles.

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. ®
