    I am looking for a FLAC audio player for 10.8 what allows me to add album art and that syncs with my Android phone i already tried Banshee and songbird banshee ended up re downloading the album art in very low quality and songbird didn't accept the album art and would crash every time i tried to sync it with my phone

    XLD can convert FLAC to other formats, edit the metadata, and can edit the album art. I should add that you should uncheck the option to resize large album art. There are a lot of options to go through, but I've left most of them unchanged.

    Just convert it to another lossless format, such as ALAC. Nothing is lost.

    The reason i don't want to do that is because Android does not support ALAC

    Duff-Man says...have you looked at iSonics yet? I'm not sure it has all your requirements (yet) but it looks like the developer is quite open to suggestions for improvements so maybe ask them if they'd consider adding what you need. I used the pre-1.0 versions and thought it a very nice app, and will be buying myself a license shortly....check it out, and it doesn't hurt to ask...oh yeah!

    iSonics looks good but no album art or phone support

    Have you tried Songbird? It supports FLAC and will hopefully sync with your phone:

    I thought Android supported drag&drop via the Finder? In that case I'd look into Enqueue as a music player.

    Or you could continue using iTunes and look for an Android music player that supports ALAC. It's an open source royalty-free codec after all.
