I just got a brand new 32 GB iPad with Wifi, and tried to use the Music app, and it was terrible. It is all over the place.

I am looking for a good 3rd party music app to replace the built in music app. If it has an equalizer or can use the built in equalizer that would be fine. The player itself should have a better layout of buttons, not on top, in the left hand corner, and possibly bigger. Good art, information about the artist, possibly lyrics support. Having audiobooks support would be an added bonus, but not necessary. I could get a separate app for that. I do have iTunes Match, so it should support that.

I saw a few music apps that I have been reading reviews about.

Groove 2 for iPad, Track 8. Each are different in there own ways. Are these the best out there or are there better ones I have missed. I don't want to pay a fortune for these apps. $2 would be a good range, but if the app is really good, and has a lot of useful features, I would be interested in paying more.

So lets here about everyone's favorite 3rd party music app for the iPad. Also, I will be getting an iPhone, when the new iPhone comes out in the fall, replacing my Android phone, so the app supporting both iPad and iPhone would be a nice bonus.

I have both track 8 and grooves 2. I would go with grooves for the features. Track 8 is just a simple, yet sleek, player and has a ways to go to be a fully featured music replacement app. That said, I would buy both (grooves for features, track 8 for when you know which album you want to play).

Google Music is pretty awesome Ė as an integrated service on Android, itís hard to beat. But thereís just one issue with music stored on Googleís servers, whether itís purchased from the Android Market or uploaded from your collection: itís only accessible from Android using the official Google Music app. With developer R2DoesIncís Cloud Music Sniper, thatís no longer the case: this Market app allows any application to access locally stored songs from Google Music, so long as theyíve been downloaded to your phone/tabletís internal storage or SD card.
