    Music player app that only scans one folder? 3rd Aug 18 at 9:41 PM
    Music dudes.... I'm sure a lot of you have music on your phone? I'm trying to find a player app that doesn't scan my entire phone and load every tiny audio file into the player. It just messes up the player with nonsense files that don't belong to any album or aren't even music.

    I've looked around a bit, but it's going to take forever trying different apps. Can anyone recommend an app that only looks at a specific music folder?

    thanks

    I'm in the same boat. Everyone I've tried finds everything on my phone, and some even search for songs online, which I don't want. I keep all my music in one place, and in subfolders of artist, and album name, if there is one.

    You'd assume looking just in a directory you specified would be a standard use case, and searching everywhere for everthing would be something a user would opt-into, not the other way round!

    If its any use I use Musicolet Music Player and it works well for me. Worth a try and its free.

    Thanks Freebyman - I had a previous simple mp3 player app that did this perfectly & missed it on my new phone (using Google Play Music offline, which keeps losing my playlists). Musicolet seems lovely from a quick play!
