all of these seem pretty trashy in comparison to Apollo, Spotify and Google Play Music all of which i actually use. xD

I don't know who thumb-down you, but the Walkman App today is the best stock music app I have tried... (had Motorola, and Samsung S3) Walkman for ICS on the Xperia Acro S is perfect... the extensions are a great addition. It has a tag editor, UI customization, NEVER Played playlist! yes, Queue list and management, and a good enough 5 band EQ. Lock screen controls, notification bar control, very nice interface. Cons are, gapless playback is missing... and I wish I could scroll the album art without changing the song, at least until tapping again...

Download the previous release of the Walkman app (a blue Walkman Icon), it has pretty much the same features but it has a slightly bigger album art, and you can scroll through each song without changing the current one.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a music player that has a lockscreen widget or a notification one? I've tried a few, but can't see to find it. Any help?

PowerAMP does, but you have to enable the lockscreen integration in settings

Poweramp IMHO is the best. The 10 band eq, the built in music presets, it has a lock screen.. I have used a few others, but this one rocks. I like the full audio controls in the EQ which I can set for a single song, an album or my entire library. But each person has their own preferences. I use Beats tour headphones and I like the sound poweramp puts out through them. I also have a Harmon/Kardon stereo system with 400 watts in my car that sounds very sweet when streaming music through from my note 2 to my car. Good luck. Make sure it has a EQ of at least 10 bands or pass

I've been using it on my first Android smartphone, tried out the trial, and after it expired, I immediately went on to buy the license and use it even until now. Just love it so much! The picture is PowerAmp too, if I'm not mistaken.. PowerAmp ftw!!! =)
