The smart phones today have come a long way and many people use their android phone for music purposes. May it be Radio, Internet Radio or Music on their phone’s memory, you can see the concept of portable music player is getting redundant (some might argue) with the adoption smart phone like android. Frankly, speaking I use my phone’s music and sometime radio while I am traveling. However, with many flavors of android phones, the default music players in each have their own pros and cons.

Honestly, there is not dearth of music players both free and paid in the Android market. However, we stumbled upon a really simple, minimalistic yet powerful music application for android that makes playing music breeze at the same time is capable of identifying and tagging music. Not to mention a good integration with various social platforms. What is good is that it’s desktop integration which makes syncing an easy process which has traditionally and natively been missed in android. Though there are alternatives like doubletwist and syncmate.

There is now a new alternative and slightly a different one with quite smart functionality. Instinctiv is a music application for android and also has integration with desktop (Both Mac and PC).
