Browse Play Music by Folder on Android

Be it anyone, one art that most of us like is Music. For many it’s integral part of their life. Music accompanies us during both good and tough times. When you are alone it’s there to console you, when happy to cheer you even more. There can be nothing equivalent to listening your favorite number and going for a long lonely walk or a drive. Most often we do carry our big list of favorite tracks on our mobile phone to enjoy them on the go.

In this article we are going to see how you can browse, play songs by folder on your Android phones. If you had noticed default Android media player supports playing song only by artists, albums and playlists. But in many situations directory based browsing becomes essential which is missing. For example many of the songs you download might not have the correct ID3 tag details which is required for the player to properly categorize. In many occasions music does not have tag details at all. More over if you don’t know the artist/album name it becomes ever more daunting. This certainly makes searching and playing the songs in a sequence seemingly difficult.

A simple solution to this problem is to place the songs in individual folders. But the problem is default player does not support directory based browsing. So here we are listing out free music players that has this feature.
