n7player is perhaps the most visually appealing music player for android. I’ve been using it since it was in the beta stages and have never looked back. Of course, I’ve used doubleTwist Player (which I still use as a backup), PowerAmp and Mixzing; but none could compete with the beauty of n7player.
Another feature I love about n7player is that it lets you choose what your music directories are. Most other players get crowded with mp3 files that are not in your music collection. Besides this and the stunning appearance, it’s got a graphic equalizer, bass boost, an album art downloader, sleep timer and several other features.
Not that it’s perfect in every aspect. The lack of control the user has over the playlist will get apparent if you use it regularly. This is the biggest grievance you’d hear from a n7player user. Hope the devs would add better playlist management features soon and, mind you, this has never been a reason to ditch the player over others.
The free version of the app is only a 14 day trial. The full version unlocker usually costs $2.89, but it’s on a sale for $0.99 for a limited time. Believe me, you won’t repent even if you bought it for the full price.
So I thought of writing about Rebecca Black. Not a fan of hers, but I had nothing to write and Rebecca came to my mind and I thought why not? So here I am.
Like most of us, I got to know about Rebecca Black just after she released the Friday video in YouTube. Seven am I wake up in the morning, gotta be fresh gotta go down stairs, dun dun dun. No one disagrees that the lyrics are a bit um.. childish. But neither can one disagree with the fact that the song was more or less catchy. I played it two or three times in YouTube. Okay, I admit, it was more than half a dozen times. My subconscious even began humming the tune several times during the day.
Rebecca became an internet celebrity, and the video came to be the most disliked video on Youtube. People said that she was the worst thing happened to be on earth after Justin Beiber. Haters gonna hate. However, it was later announced that she was donating all the Friday’s proceedings to emergency relief efforts in Japan, making many mouths shut.
Rebecca then starred in Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night (TGIF) music video. She didn’t of course sing in it, but she looked real elegant and charming, and the video was a hit.
In July she released her second song and video ‘My Moment‘. The lyrics were like a slap in the faces of the haters. “Were you the one who said that I would be nothing.. well, I’m about to prove you wrong”. Anyway the new track wasn’t as catchy as the first. The lyrics weren’t bad, but the song was far from good. It was received with mixed reviews from the fans.
In the end, I’m neither an RB hater nor a lover. Whatever people’s reactions are, she is here to stay everyone will have to live with it.
Many users have experienced that their tracks aren’t properly scrobbled in last.fm during the past 24 hours. However, this seems to be a display issue, the tracks are actually being scrobbled. To see the real track list that’s been scrobbled, add “/tracks” to your user URL.
I recently bought this new Micro SD card for my Nokia E63 and added some dozens of songs into it. Unfortunately the in-built music library won’t recognize the new music. A message appears saying it’s refreshing the library but it doesn’t refresh even after hours.
Later found that this had to do with some compatibility problem in the IDs of the MP3s. After a lot of searching I stumbled upon this post, however the command in there did not work so came up with the following after a bit of modification.
Get the terminal and enter the following command: (Yes, you need a linux system like Ubuntu. Which sane person uses Windows these days?)
