Our Review:

Cloudskipper has a good set of features, and has a beautifully designed interface. For a while, the developers had said that it's been left behind and deteriorating. About three years ago that status changed and it got a facelift, but there hasn't been much development since then.

The artists, albums, songs and genres sections work as expected. The main exception is that when you choose a genre, you get a list of songs, instead of a choice between songs, albums or artists. However, everything is designed very nicely and elegantly. There is also a podcast player, but not a downloader.

There is an equalizer, which sounds amazing. There's also a reverb effect, a virtualizer, and a bass booster.

The lock screen player, as you could expect from this app, is very nicely designed, and can even be set as your permanent lock screen, although there are a couple of problems with that. It doesn't support setting the album art as the wallpaper in Android 4.4 KitKat and later, though.

The app doesn't run in the background when it's not needed, and takes up very good 10MB RAM when playing music in the background. The app doesn't use any ads either.

Overal, this app doesn't have any features that make it stand out. However, if you don't need advanced functionality, but like something that is very pleasing to the eye, this is perfect for you. The equalizer is also very good, so for those of you who need their equalizers, you should like this app.
