There are very few quality apps left for Symbian now as the end of this OS is nearing. Good music player apps are also scarce for touchscreen Symbian devices (TTPod, QuasarMX, qooPlayer and ??? none I remember except these). Yesterday I came across a less-known music player for Symbian called Zene. It looks pretty simple in appearance but has some cool features to enjoy the music. I tried Zene in my N8 and it impressed me indeed. Here is an overview of it’s features –
“Shake to change the song” is an interesting function in Zene which allows you to move to the next track by just shaking the phone. This function works even if the phone is locked. This function can be disabled via menu.
Zene can sort and play songs by albums, specific folder or playlists of your favorite songs
Zene will scan all drives for songs at start and you can also create playlists using the player
Zene can run in the background (hide function)
There are some built-in themes to change the appearance of the player
Sleep-timer function allows you to set the time for switching off Zene (at the specified time)
Mp3/wma/midi format support
However there is no equalizer function to change the audio frequencies but how many of us care about equalizer!
So give Zene Music Player a try – it is compatible with all Symbian^3/Anna/Belle phones (Nokia 500, 603, 701, N8, C7, E7 etc). Download free from here or here. There is also a Symbian S60v5 specific version of Zene available at the Nokia Ovi Store.
