I recently purchased an app for Androids. It is called Poweramp. I am still playing with it.

Dynamike, I downloaded PowerAmp and took a look at it. As far as I can tell, there is no way to use it with a remote control. So the comparison to Best Boy seems incorrect.

The apps are designed to do different things - Best Boy is for stage performers to run a show, PowerAmp is the best MP3 jukebox they can make.

OK, it looks like I missed something - PowerAmp will work with Bluetooth remotes. There are a few of them out there for Android devices.

So, if someone has tried this, please let us know how it works.
