Quasar Media Player is a light-weight, fast, and convenient media player for mobile systems. It offers many of the features found in modern desktop media players, like fast library overview and filtering along with the ability to handle large libraries very well. It has several unique features that give it unprecedented flexibility on a mobile device, like a zoomable interface for better readability even from a distance, or auto-generated playlists from a set of locations. It offers flexible support and handling of cover art images, and features a cover art album browser and built-in downloader. Quasar is highly configurable and can be operated completely via keyboard, remote control, or touchscreen.
Lyra is a front-end to the Music Player Daemon (MPD). Based loosely on the Creative Media Source software, it has the aim of supporting large collections of albums and artists. Other interesting features are the implementation of a local cache of the music library using an SQLite database, increased speed, and flexibility. In addition, Lyra supports integration with the Last.fm service, which includes "Scrobbling" and album cover art.
