PwnPlayer is an application that is aimed to be a replacement for your stock iPod app on your iPhone or iPod Touch. It has most of the basic features of the iPod with a few extra (and very nice) features. When you open PwnPlayer, you will notice a lower menu bar with the options; Featured, Playlists, Library, File System and Search. The Featured option gives you more information about the application. The Playlist option allows you to create multiple playlists…similar to the stock iPod application. Library allows you look through your music by Artist, Songs and/or Albums. File System is a very cool option that allows you to play files from via your file system. Another nice feature is the Search option. In Search, you are able to search for keywords in Songs, Artists, Albums, Files or All.
On the Featured page you will also notice a Settings button in the upper left corner. In the Settings you are able to select an audio type, see the directories the file system is pulling from on your iPhone (and edit the directories) and you also have the ability to turn on/off lock screen gesture controls and your Home Button double-tap controls. If you turn on the lock screen gesture controls, you are able to control PwnPlayer from your lock screen. All you have to do is tap and hold on your lock screen and the controls will appear.
This application does warn that it is not completely stable yet however, it did pretty well for me. It only crashed once or twice the entire time I was testing it. Overall, I like the application it does the basics of the stock media player and adds a few really nice features. Let me know in the comments what you think of the app.
