Simple. Works. I keep my music arranged in folders and don't care to edit metadata. The left column shows me the list of folders, I double-click on one and it loads everything in that folder to the main playlist and starts playing it, including subfolders.

So far it plays everything I've thrown at it. Much easier to use than Clementine.

thanks, good to know, but unfortunately, despite the dev's good will, it has more bugs than the original.

I'm using Cog since years now and it's my preferred player for mp3 because of its simplicity, with just the essentials, but there is something strange about all those "little nice players" (including Play and Vox): while they play aac (.m4a) apparently correctly, they misunderstand tunes'durations (displaying something like 1:13:24 instead of 04:35).
It might be boring if you have to go to a precise location in the song, when checking a converted song, for example.
The only app displaying durations correctly (except for iTunes or Quicktime Player, of course) is VLC!
P.S.: note than I have only checked on PPC :-)

A nice, light, no nonsense player that works with Last.fm, yet bypasses the bloat (and bugs) of iTunes and Songbird.

Version 0.08 is already out.. Look at the "Development" part of the homepage.

Love this app for is simplicity - just listening to your music..

PLUS you can scrobble (last.fm) your tracks with it ;)

Aargl had trouble on 13 Dec 2010
At this point, it seems quite clear that developpement is stopped (nearly 3 years now from the last 'news' on the site...).
I use and really like it to check an album without importing it in iTunes.
I've just noticed a little lack: it does not read m4a (aac) tags.
